Opening line

Browns -5, Over/Under 44

Why the line moved

UPDATE 12:27 P.M. ET, THURSDAY OCT. 21: Injuries continue to dominate the storyline for this TNF showdown, as news yesterday that Cleveland QB Baker Mayfield will be out — and replaced by veteran Case Keenum — means the Browns will be without their No. 1 QB and top two running backs. Denver QB Teddy Bridgewater was also downgraded to questionable yesterday, with quad and foot ailments, but it appears he will be under center tonight.

This has led the Cleveland spread to shrink all the way down to -1 just eight hours prior to kickoff. DraftKings Sportsbook was reporting more than half of the tickets and handle were on Denver +2 as of Thursday morning, prompting the shift to -1, while our Covers Consensus is also showing more public play on Denver +1 than the home side giving a point.

The total has also dropped down to 40.5 from the opening 44, based on both the significant injuries for tonight and the expected 20 mph winds, with gusts up to 35 mph. 

Opening line

Giants +2.5, Over/Under 44

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:00 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: The injury list is long for the Giants, especially at the skill positions where top talents like Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, and other WRs are out of action in Week 7. This spread has stayed steady at Carolina -3 most of the week despite 71 percent of picks on the Panthers, according to Covers Consensus. The total has dropped from 43.5 to 42.5.  

BACK TO TOP

Opening line

Patriots -6.5, Over/Under 43

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:00 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: The Patriots opened -6.5 and quickly moved to -7 earlier in the week and saw brief moves back down throughout the week, with immediate buyback on the Jets that push the spread back to a touchdown. WynnBet sportsbooks are reporting almost 87 percent of tickets on New England with 77 percent of the handle on the home team as well.

Opening line

Titans +4, Over/Under 56.5

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:00 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: The Titans are one of the more popular underdog bets on Week 7, with Covers Consensus showing 58 percent of picks on Tennessee. The home side has come down from +5.5 to as low as +4 at some books, however, the Chiefs will have WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce in action today. DraftKings sportsbooks are reporting solid two-way action in terms of tickets count and handle on this game, but we’re seeing Kansas City -4 (-115) or a move back to -4.5, which shows late action is siding with the Chiefs on the road. 

Opening line

Packers -10.5, Over/Under 49

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:00 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: The Packers have slowly slipped from as big as -10.5 to as low as -7.5 for this home date with Washington. Books jumped back to Green Bay -8.5 or -9 just before the weekend, with bookies reporting 89 percent of bets on the Cheeseheads and 81.5 percent of the money riding on Aaron Rodgers & Co. This total has also trimmed from 49 points to 47.5 with 55 percent of tickets on the Over but almost 65 percent of the handle on the Under. 

Opening line

Dolphins -1.5 Over/Under 48

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:10 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: The game features one of the biggest line moves of the week, with some books opening Miami as a 2-point home favorite last Sunday and a market correction moving the line to Falcons -2. Covers Consensus shows 59 percent of picks on Atlanta and sportsbooks like DraftKings are seeing similar splits with 64 percent of ticket count on the visitor.

BACK TO TOP

Opening line

Ravens -6.5, Over/Under 47.5

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:30 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: The Ravens have dipped from -6.5 to -6 at some sportsbooks as of Sunday morning. WynnBet sportsbooks are reporting almost 61 percent of bets on Baltimore but the money on this AFC North rivalry is more balanced, with the Ravens showing a 55 percent edge in terms of handle.

This total has seen a significant move since opening, dropping from 48.5 points to 44 points over the course of the week. This move downward clashes with the reporting from books like WynnBet, who are showing more than 80 percent of tickets and money on the Over – indicating that sharp play could be siding with a low-scoring finish in Week 7.  

Opening line

Rams -15.5, Over/Under 50

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:30 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24:  This lofty spread was sitting at Rams -15.5 for most of the week but climbed to -16.5 as the weekend drew near. Books are dealing Los Angeles between -16 and -16.5 with Covers Consensus showing 57 percent of picks on the big home chalk. DraftKings sportsbooks is showing 59 percent of bets on Los Angeles but 83 percent of the money is confident in the Rams.

Opening line

Raiders -3, Over/Under 47.5

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:40 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: The recent injury updates on Raiders TE Darren Waller have slimmed this spread from Las Vegas -3 to -2. Covers Consensus shows 64 percent of picks on the home side and WynnBet sportsbooks show a similar split in ticket count, yet have taken just 56 percent of the handle on the Raiders. 

Opening line

Cardinals -17.5, Over/Under 48

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:40 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: Books have pushed this spread as high as Arizona -18, with some books seeing some late buyback on Houston, moving the line to Cardinals -17.5. Covers Consensus shows 58 percent of picks on the home side while DraftKings sportsbooks are reporting 64 percent of tickets and 62 percent of the money putting their faith in the Cardinals to cover this pile of points.

BACK TO TOP

Opening line

Buccaneers -13, Over/Under 48

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:45 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: This spread slimmed as low as Tampa Bay -11.5 before the weekend but late money on the Bucs has bumped the line back to as high as -13 versus Chicago. Covers Consensus shows split picks on this game, with 51 percent of selections on Tampa Bay. Sportsbooks are reporting similar bet counts, with 54 percent of tickets on Tampa Bay but more than 68 percent of money on the Bears, indicating that larger and most respected wagers are being placed on Chicago. This total has trimmed from 49 points to 47, with 65.5 percent of bets on the Under yet 55 percent of handle on the Over. 

Opening line

49ers -5, Over/Under 44.5

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:45 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: The 49ers injury report is still lengthy for Sunday Night Football but San Francisco will have QB Jimmy Garoppolo under center versus the Colts in Week 7.

Why the line moved

UPDATE 8:45 A.M. ET, SUNDAY OCT. 24: The spread for the Monday night finale has bounced between Saints -4 and -4.5 most of the week, with books drawing 68 percent of bets and 76 percent of money on New Orleans. Covers Consensus is showing 52 percent of picks on Seattle, however, which will once again have Geno Smith under center in place of the injured Russell Wilson. This total has moved from 44 to 42.5 with WynnBet reporting 92 of the money on the Under despite the Under bringing in just 58 percent of the ticket count on the total.
