Dave Mason of BetOnline brings us the teams seeing the most action and the largest liabilities.


The bet count may be split but much of the cash on the Titans-Colts game is coming in on Tennessee.  The line on this game moved from Titans +1.5 to +2.5.

88% of the money was flooding in on the Dolphins hosting the Giants.  Oddsmakers, including those at BetOnline, were running scared as this line moved from Miami -9 to -12.5.  We are seeing some books hitting -13.

60% of action is on the Eagles in their game versus the Rams.  This one dropped from -5 to -4.

63% of the bettors were backing the 49ers in their game against the 49ers.   It would appear the action has balanced out at many of the other books we observe.

The Chiefs-Vikings game is among the more intriguing matchups on Sunday.  KC was seeing 69% of the betting action as the line moves more favorably on the Chiefs behalf from -5.5 to -3.

Sagarin gives us a line of -8.48 favoring KC, which indicates an underlay of between 3 and 5 points.  These underlays where the line hits the 3.5 without going under 3 tend to perform well for the favorite whereas oddsmakers appear to have an opinion on Minnesota covering here based on the line movement.  With 80% lopsided action on Kansas City one would think the line would move upwards to encourage more action on the Vikings.
