So far this week we have seen six major line moves in the NFL and we have scoop on all them. Take a minute to review all the betting trends and our free picks (245-194 of late and recent 29-20 mark), when posted, to see what we are thinking. See you back here tomorrow.
NFL - (463) OAKLAND at (464) TENNESSEE 1:00 ET CBS
Tennessee has shown improvement to date, while Oakland looks like the same old Raiders, making one mistake after another. This has help push the Titans from a Pick to -1.5. Still, Tennessee is a work in progress and this is just the kind of game Oakland would play well in and they are 6-0 as road underdogs since last season.
Betting Trend – 78% backing Oakland
NFL – (471) WASHINGTON at (472) N.Y. GIANTS 1:00 ET FOX
With neither of these NFC East rivals showing much on offense, those betting football did not like the opening total of 47.5 and sportsbooks have since dropped it two points to 45.5. This has mostly been a lower scoring series of late with the UNDER 7-2 in last nine. However, whenever you see a total fall, best to look at the teams turnover margins and both are negative, which makes pick more problematic.
Betting Trend – 62% backing Over
NFL – (477) SAN FRANCISCO at (478) SEATTLE 4:05 ET FOX
The total dipping from 42.5 to 40 is not catching anyone off guard. Seattle offense has been horrific and the defense is doing what they do. Despite the obvious, San Francisco has scored 55 points in two games and appears to be better offensively and even with Russell Wilson dinged, the Niners are 14-3 OVER away after allowing 450+ yards in last game.
Betting Trend – 80% backing Under
NFL – (479) LOS ANGELES at (480) TAMPA BAY 4:05 ET FOX
Los Angeles might have won against Seattle and Tampa Bay got ripped in Arizona, but the wagering public is not buying the Buccaneers at -3.5 in home opener and shoved them to -5. The Rams have yet to find the end zone and as long as Tampa Bay does not turn the ball over, they will score. The Rams are 0-6 ATS after a win by six or less points.
Betting Trend – 63% backing Tampa Bay
NFL – (483) N.Y. JETS at (484) KANSAS CITY 4:25 ET CBS
Takeaway the 30-point second half against San Diego in Game 1 and Kansas City has five field goals and no touchdowns this season. The Chiefs better have the passing game in order because nobody is running the effectively on the Jets. Football bettors are largely unconvinced the Kansas City or Gang Green will find the end zone enough and lowered the total from 44 to 42.5. New York comes in 17-5 UNDER after allowing seven or more yards a play in their previous contest.
Betting Trend – 55% backing Under
NFL – (485) SAN DIEGO at (486) INDIANAPOLIS 4:25 ET CBS
In the this AFC affair, the thinking is their will be shortage of defense, which has led to the total rising from 50.5 to 52. Both teams feature veteran quarterbacks and mediocre defenses. Yet, oddly enough San Diego is 13-1 UNDER after scoring 30 or points in previous outing.
Betting Trend – 86% backing Over
