According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Saints are currently 3.5-point favorites but at William Hill in Las Vegas, the Rams are only catching a field goal as a road dog. At other Vegas sports books, such as the MGM Mirage and Wynn LV, the Saints are 3.5-point favorites but the juice is currently EVEN as opposed to the standard -110.
As of this writing, 56% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Rams to cover the number and so is 51% of the money. The total, meanwhile, currently sits at 56.5 after opening at 57. Most of the betting tickets (55%) and the money wagered (72%) is on the over.
