Bills-Rams line jumps the fence for Week 1; O/U 52

by Mike Spector | Bills Team Correspondent |
Sun, Aug 7th 7:35am ET

The Buffalo Bills are currently -1 point road favorites in Week 1 over the Los Angeles Rams, with an O/U of 52 points, per BettingPros consensus odds... View More

Betting Impact:

It is rare for a defending Super Bowl champion to be home underdogs in the first week, but that is how much respect oddsmakers have for the Bills, who are the favorites to win the Super Bowl. This line has jumped the fence from when the odds were first released, as Los Angeles was -1 point favorites at most sportsbooks. Buffalo went 11-6 SU in the regular season and 10-7-2 ATS overall last year, while Los Angeles was 12-5 heading into the playoffs, and finished 10-11 ATS.

Good two-way action on the Rams-Bengals over/under

by Mike Spector | Rams Team Correspondent |
Sun, Feb 6th 5:43pm ET

DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the Super Bowl matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams... View More

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, the over of 48.5 points has attracted 56% of the bets and 54% of the money thus far. The sportsbook has to love the early two-way action on this over/under, and they similarly have little liability on the point spread odds at the moment as well. However, there is still a week's worth of betting action that could significantly alter these splits, and move the lines accordingly. From a moneyline perspective, Cincinnati's +170 moneyline odds have attracted 66% of the bets and 51% of the money to this point.

Good early two-way action on the Bengals-Rams point spread

by Mike Spector | Rams Team Correspondent |
Sun, Feb 6th 5:41pm ET

DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the point spread for the Super Bowl matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams... View More

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, Cincinnati's +4.5 point spread has received 63% of the bets and 53% of the handle thus far. The early betting splits suggests the slightly larger wagers to this point have backed the favored Rams. While these splits are representative of a week's worth of betting action, much more money will come in on this game throughout the week, and especially on Sunday, leaving the line susceptible to movement before kickoff.

Bengals look to continue winning streak against winning teams when facing the Rams

by Mike Spector | Rams Team Correspondent |
Mon, Jan 31st 10:12am ET

The Cincinnati Bengals are 6-0 SU in their last six games against teams with winning records, and look to make it seven consecutive wins when facing the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI... View More

Betting Impact:

Despite this winning streak, the Bengals are +165 moneyline underdogs, per BettingPros consensus odds. Cincinnati's Super Bowl run came as a shock to many, as they are just two full seasons removed from a 2-14 campaign. In addition, many sportsbooks listed them with 200-1 odds before the season started to win the Super Bowl. Meanwhile, Los Angeles has gotten off to fast starts lately. The Rams have won the first quarter in five of their last six games at SoFi Stadium, and have been the first team to score 20 points in each of their last nine games.

Rams-Bengals point spread ticks down a half point

by Mike Spector | Rams Team Correspondent |
Mon, Jan 31st 10:02am ET

The point spread for the Super Bowl LVI matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals has decreased a half point in Cincinnati's favor... View More

Betting Impact:

After opening as -4.5 point favorites, the Rams have been bet down to -4, per DraftKings Sportsbook. This initial line movement happened late Sunday night and the Rams were quickly bet back to -4.5. However, overnight the spread has come back down to -4, which suggests Bengals backers are going to continually back the underdogs if this number reappears at +4.5. The Rams are 10-10 ATS this season, while the Bengals have covered the spread in 13 of their 20 games.

Rams open -4.5 against the Bengals; O/U 49.5

by Mike Spector | Rams Team Correspondent |
Mon, Jan 31st 9:59am ET

The Los Angeles Rams have opened as -4.5 point favorites for their Super Bowl LVI matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, with an over/under of 49.5 points, per DraftKings Sportsbook... View More

Betting Impact:

The Bengals and Rams should both be considered fortunate to be playing in the Super Bowl, as this was the second time in the Super Bowl era (since 1966) that both conference championship game winners came back from double-digit deficits. Furthermore, per ESPN Stats and Info, the Rams had been 0-14 under Sean McVay when trailing by ten or more points entering the fourth quarter, including 0-4 this season. Los Angeles will attempt to become the second consecutive team to win the Super Bowl in their home stadium, after no team even played in their home stadium in the Super Bowl through the game's first 54 years.

49ers' Williams (ankle) questionable vs. Rams

by Mike Spector | Rams Team Correspondent |
Sat, Jan 29th 7:38pm ET

San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Trent Williams (ankle) is questionable for the NFC Championship game against the Los Angeles Rams... View More

Betting Impact:

Williams is one of the most vital members of the 49ers offensive line. The good news for San Francisco is wide receiver Deebo Samuel has been removed from the injury report and will be a full-go for Sunday. Los Angeles will have their own left tackle, Andrew Whitworth, available after he missed last week's win over Tampa Bay. The Rams have held firm as -3.5 point home favorites all week, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

Wed, Jan 26th 11:42am ET

After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week... View More

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.

Betting Impact:

After opening at 51.5 points on Sunday night, the Chiefs-Bengals over/under was quickly bet up two full points to 53.5 per DraftKings. However, the total rose yet again to 54.5, as bettors are likely reacting to Kansas City's offensive onslaught with back-to-back 40+ point performances to start the playoffs.

While that is positive injury news for the Buccaneers, the team still has two offensive linemen (Tristan Wirfs, Ryan Jensen) that are game-time decisions. The Buccaneers are -2.5 point home favorites (down from an opening number of -3), and the over/under is at 48 points, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Titans' Henry (foot) expected to start against the Bengals

by Mike Spector | Titans Team Correspondent |
Fri, Jan 21st 1:07pm ET

The Tennessee Titans have activated running back Derrick Henry off injured reserve, and he is expected to start in their Divisional Round matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals... View More

Betting Impact:

It is unclear how much of a workload the team plans to give Henry, or even if he will be on a snap count. Fellow running backs D'Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard held down the fort well in Henry's absence, combining for 916 rushing yards and five touchdowns in nine games. Henry's return was arguably baked into the original line, as the Titans remained -3.5 point home favorites even after this news. However, the total did increase from 47 to 47.5 points, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Buccaneers' Wirfs, Jensen return to practice ahead of matchup with the Rams

by Mike Spector | Rams Team Correspondent |
Fri, Jan 21st 12:58pm ET

Per James Palmer on Twitter, Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive linemen Tristan Wirfs and Ryan Jensen returned to practice, getting involved in individual drills but were held out of team drills... View More

Betting Impact:

Palmer's tweet also suggested we would not know a final decision on either players' status until the hour and a half deadline where the final injury report gets released before the game. Against a fierce Rams front, Tampa Bay will need all the healthy bodies on the offensive line they can get. Since opening at -3 on Monday, the Buccaneers have been bet down to -2.5 since, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Thu, Jan 20th 9:47am ET

DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the Divisional Round matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers... View More

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, the over of 47 points has attracted 62% of the bets and 51% of the money thus far. While the sportsbook will be rooting for a 49ers cover based on the one-sided betting action, they will have no liability to either side of the total if the betting split remains similar before kickoff. From a moneyline perspective, Green Bay's -275 moneyline odds have attracted 76% of the bets and 76% of the money.

DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Packers... View More

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, Green Bay's -6 point spread has received 72% of the bets and 75% of the handle thus far. Of all four Divisional Round playoff games, the Packers are the team getting the most betting action from the public. Thus, a 49ers cover, or even outright win, is shaping up to be the sportsbook's biggest need of the weekend.

DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the point spread for Sunday’s Divisional Round matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs... View More

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -1.5 point spread has received 52% of the bets and 53% of the handle thus far. This line is down from an opening line of -2.5 points later in the week, despite the near 50/50 betting split. Thus, that suggests the more respected money has backed the underdog Bills to this point.

Thu, Jan 20th 9:16am ET

Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the over is getting slightly more betting attention than the under in the Divisional Round matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans... View More

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, the over of 47 points has attracted 66% of the bets and 68% of the money thus far. From a moneyline perspective, Cincinnati has been a very trendy 'dog, as their +155 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 66% of the money. Thus, it would appear as if the sportsbook will be rooting hard for a Titans outright win on Saturday.

Early money slightly favors the Titans over the Bengals

by Mike Spector | Bengals Team Correspondent |
Thu, Jan 20th 8:59am ET

Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Tennessee Titans are getting slightly more betting attention in their Divisional Round matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals... View More

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, Tennessee's -3.5 point spread has received 47% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Though the sportsbook is likely happy with the early two-way action, the fact that the larger wagers have come in on the favorites is on their radar and is something they will continue to monitor. This line still has room to move based on the playing status of Titans running back Derrick Henry.

Titans' Henry passes test with contact practice ahead of matchup with Bengals

by Mike Spector | Bengals Team Correspondent |
Thu, Jan 20th 8:35am ET

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry practice with contact yesterday, and the team reportedly was pleased with how he went through all the drills. That is a big step in getting him back on the field in time for Saturday's Divisional Round matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals... View More

Betting Impact:

Henry has been on injured reserve since Week 8, and while he may play Saturday, there is still a chance he is on a snap count as he works his way back from a fractured foot. The point spread for this matchup has been bet down from Tennessee -4 to -3.5 (per DraftKings), while the over/under has remained firm at 47 points. However, if Henry were to be announced as active, there would likely be a reaction from bettors that could drive the point spread up.

Good early two-way action on the Rams-Buccaneers point spread

by Mike Spector | Buccaneers Team Correspondent |
Thu, Jan 20th 8:28am ET

DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the point spread for Sunday’s Divisional Round matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs... View More

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, Tampa Bay's -3 point spread has received 51% of the bets and 50% of the handle thus far. Though there are still three days left before kickoff, the sportsbook is in a perfect spot at the moment, as not only do they have a perfect 50/50 split on the handle, but it does not appear as they have anything to worry about in terms of sharps making larger wagers on one side or the other. As a result, we are not likely to see this line budge off -3 based on the early betting splits.

49ers' Garoppolo (shoulder) limited at practice on Tuesday ahead of matchup with the Packers

by Mike Spector | Packers Team Correspondent |
Wed, Jan 19th 10:46am ET

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is dealing with a strained shoulder after their win against Dallas last week, and was limited at practice yesterday ahead of this week's Divisional Round matchup with the Green Bay Packers... View More

Betting Impact:

Though Garoppolo does not appear to be in jeopardy of missing Saturday's game, the line did move in Green Bay's favor after news of his injury was released. The Packers went from -5.5 to -6 point home favorites, and the over/under dropped from 48 to 47.5, per DraftKings. In addition to Garoppolo, LB Fred Warner (ankle) also was limited at practice, while DE Nick Bosa was held out of Tuesday's practice as he continues to work through a concussion suffered last week.

Betting Impact:
