The week 4 betting lines have been moved around. Make sure to visit our NFL betting lines page to compare lines from a multitude of sportsbooks. Here’s a sampling of Sunday’s action.
The Minnesota Vikings (0-2) face a virtual must-win situation early in the season as they host the Detroit Lions (0-2) in a divisional battle between two winless NFC North teams on Sunday. The Vikings (-12 on the NFL betting lines) simply can not afford to lose another game at this point if they have any hopes of going to the playoffs because the tough part of their schedule awaits them after their bye next week.
The NFL week 2 betting lines have seen some movement. Make sure to check our NFL betting lines page to compare odds from various sportsbooks. Below are a few match-ups worth paying attention to along with where the lines have moved and are today.
The Saints and Vikings played a tight game Thursday night, going well below the total. The Saints ended up pushing the spread of 5 points at most sites, thanks to Garrett Hartley missing both field goal attempts. What’s in store for the rest of week 1? Check out our NFL betting lines page – or the table below – to compare lines from various sportsbooks.
The NFL regular season kicks off this Thursday night when the New Orleans Saints begin their championship defense at home against the Minnesota Vikings. The game is a rematch of last year’s NFC title game, which the Saints won in overtime. The Saints looked good in the preseason. Drew Brees is an elite quarterback, and Reggie Bush might be ready to have his break-out season this year. For the Vikings, Brett Favre is back for his final season yet again. Sage Rosenfels was traded to the New York Giants, which means Tavaris Jackson is the established backup should Favre fall to injury. After the way the Saints went after Favre last year, that scenario is certainly a possibility. The absence of Sidney Rice is a big loss for Minnesota. The public likes the Saints at nearly 4:1. As you can see on our NFL betting lines page – or the table below – the line opened with New Orleans favored by 4 ½ points. Most books have stayed there, though a couple have moved up to 5 points.
The final week of NFL preseason action takes place this Thursday with all 16 games slated for play on September 2. This is the last of week of preseason play, which means the regular season is just around the corner. Check out our NFL betting lines page to see all the updated lines for week 4 and to compare odds from various sportsbooks.
The Philadelphia Eagles travel to Cincinnati Friday night to try and tame the Bengals. The game promises to be an exciting matchup with offensive firepower coming from each side. Oddsmakers have predictably listed the home Bengals as the favorite, with Cincy giving a fieldgoal. But the line worthy of a play is the total score.
The second full week of NFL preseason games is upon us. Sixteen games are slated for play. Like always, our NFL betting odds page is where you can compare lines from multiple sportsbooks although we have added the opening and current NFL preseason lines for week 2 in a nice formatted table below.
