NFL Week 16 Line Movement Report
With Week 16 in the NFL approaching rapidly, here's a midweek line movement report on some of the key matchups this week.
Redskins at Eagles, 8:25PM ET, Saturday
At 7-7 the Redskins currently hold first place in the NFC East, while the Eagles are right behind them at 6-8. With much on the line Saturday night in Philadelphia, the Eagles opened as a 4-point home favorite but the line has been bet down to 3 according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI. The total has also dropped, going from 48 down to 47 points.
Giants at Vikings, 8:30PM ET, Sunday
Speaking of the NFC East, the Giants also remain in the mix to win the division at 6-8 but have a tough road test Sunday night against the Vikings. Minnesota opened as a 6.5-point home favorite but the line has been dropped to 5.5 despite the Vikings' healthy 9-5 record. Minnesota is also 11-3 against the spread this season, which is one of the best ATS marks in the league.
Patriots at Jets, 1:00PM ET, Sunday
This is a line movement article but this game actually stands out for not having any spread movement. The Jets opened as a 3-point home underdog and that's where the line currently sits for this game despite 83% of the action being on the Patriots. This game has the feel of the Jets-Cowboys matchup last Saturday night. Even though 80% of the public action was on the Jets, the line never moved off the key number of 3. The Jets wound up winning by a field goal but the game could have easily gone the Cowboys' way had it not been for a couple of key turnovers. Perhaps oddsmakers are setting up the public for a fall with making the line so low in favor of the Patriots.
