  • WEDNESDAY – All books went to six points after receiving money on the Ravens at -5.5.

  • TUESDAY – FanDuel, Caesars and BetRivers moved up to four points.
  • WEDNESDAY – BetRivers was the lone book at four points as all others listed 3.5.
  • THURSDAY – Patriots -3.5 was the mark across the board.
  • FRIDAY – DraftKings and BetRivers were the only books to move to four points.

Bills at Jaguars

  • MONDAY – Sportsbooks put this spread at 10.5 points. Early bettors weren’t discouraged by the extra half point, betting the Bills up to two touchdowns.
  • TUESDAY – Most books took Bills action at a stagnant 14 points, moving to 14.5.

Falcons at Saints

  • MONDAY – The Saints moved from an opener of 5.5 to upward of 6.5, but this spread had yet to hit a key number of seven points.

  • WEDNESDAY – The 49ers were favored by one point at BetMGM. Other books listed the Cardinals as a short favorite.
  • THURSDAY – Kyler Murray didn’t practice Thursday with a left ankle sprain. The 49ers now are favored between one, 1.5, two and 2.5 points.
  • FRIDAY – Murray is trending toward being a game-day decision. More money hit the Niners that erased any spreads under two points.

SNF: Titans at Rams

  • MONDAY – The Titans lost Derrick Henry for the season and the Rams acquired Von Miller. The Rams moved -4 to -7.5.

  • WEDNESDAY – Sportsbooks remained at 7.5 points across the board.
  • THURSDAY – Sportsbooks were split at seven and 7.5 points as Titans money snagged 7.5 at some books.
