Baltimore Ravens -2 at Carolina Panthers

47% are willing to lay the 2 points. Ravens were an extra point away from tying the game in Week 7 against a more talented opponent, the New Orleans Saints.

Baltimore could demolish Panthers, but Carolina heads into Week 8 after beating defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia in Week 7.

Bookies will set max betting limits on both moneylines. They’ll use their layoff accounts if one team overbet.

Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers -8

Steelers should be overbet in most sportsbooks because Pittsburgh hosts Browns after thrashing Atlanta, beating Cincinnati on the road, and their Week 7 bye.

Steelers opened at -7. They’re now -8. Most handicappers have switched sides to back the Browns. Money on Pittsburgh’s baked in, though.

Pay per head agents will set max betting limits on Browns moneyline. They’ll also use their layoff accounts if Steelers overbet.

San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals -1

51% like 49ers while 49% like the Cardinals. Hard to see most NFL bettors not backing the Cardinals, which means Arizona ends up a -2 to -3 favorite before kickoff on Sunday. Handicappers know Denver spanked Arizona in Week 7 because Cardinals’ Josh Rosen accounted for 3 interceptions, 2 the Broncos ran back for touchdowns, and 2 fumbles.

If Rosen’s careful with the football, Arizona should win. In any sportsbooks where San Fran’s overbet, bookies might allow money to ride.

New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings pk

Odds dropped significantly from Vikings -2.5. Saints might end up favorites. They ride a 5-game winning streak both straight up and against the spread. Not only that, but New Orleans’ offense hung 24 points onto the best defense in the NFL, Baltimore’s, in Week 7.

Saints acquired former Giants’ starting cornerback Eli Apple. Minnesota RB1 Dalvin Cook might not play. Most handicappers might not see how Vikings keep up on the scoreboard.

They’ll allow money on Minnesota to ride while using their layoff accounts on Saints if New Orleans is overbet.
