Cowboys 27, Saints 17

  • TUESDAY – Early money hit the Saints as five-point home underdogs on a short week, dropping the spread to 4.5 across the four above-listed sportsbooks.
  • WEDNESDAY – The market held at 4.5 points as no significant money bought back on the Cowboys at a shorter number than the opener.
  • THURSDAY – The Cowboys closed at -6.5 as a flood of backing moved the spread two full points.

Vikings at Lions

  • TUESDAY – Books opened this spread just over a key number of seven points and early action took the hook with the winless Lions.
  • WEDNESDAY – The seven-point spread held throughout the day across all four books.
  • THURSDAY – This game remained at seven points as neither side received enough action to budge the spread off a key number of seven.
  • FRIDAY – The spread went back to its opening number of 7.5 points as action came on the Vikings. This also is the mark that saw early bettors take the Lions.

Cardinals at Bears

  • TUESDAY – Bettors weren’t deterred by this spread opening at a stagnant seven points and hit the favored Cardinals at that number.
