Line moves predicted after Week 11 opening odds posted

How bad is the team that is a double-digit underdog to the Dolphins? Pretty bad and that’s what the Oakland Raiders are. But being bad and failing to cover the spread are two different things.

And knowing when to bet during the week is almost as important as knowing which team to bet on. Why? Because of line moves. NFL odds open on Monday and move up or down during the week as injury updates come in and as money rolls in on one team or the other.

The St. Louis Rams were crushed last week by the Jets losing 47-3 while the 49ers barely lost in Arizona on Monday night 29-24. The 49ers looked good in the loss and the Rams looked awful in getting spanked by the Jets (who led 40-0 at halftime). Bettors can get this game at great odds and {URL=}rake in a huge bonus this week {/URL}as well.

The Rams have the 30th ranked defense and the 31st ranked offense and the public is not going to lay money on Lambs even at +4. In the Monday night loss, the 49ers D held the dynamic offense of the Cardinals to 29 points and scored 24 points on Arizona’s legit D.

The line will probably go up in this game, so if you want to lay some green on the 49ers take the line now.

Seattle has lost two games in a row, is playing their backup QB, and has the league’s 27th ranked defense. The Seattle secondary is the worst in the league at defending the pass and with MVP candidate Kurt Warner’s third-ranked offense coming to town this Sunday, it spells double-trouble for the Seahawks.

Warner may torch the secondary of the Seahawks and with the Cardinals high-octane offense, the public will not be inclined to bet on the home team. If you want to bet on the Cardinals BET NOW, as the line will, more than likely, go up.

The Cowboys have lost four of their last six games and are reeling right now. Even though the Redskins lost their last game, they are coming off a bye week and will be fresh for this huge rivalry game.

The line for the game may go up, so if you look to bet on the Redskins take the line now. There are a couple of factors that will affect the line this week. Redskins RB Clinton Portis is questionable for the game and Dallas QB Tony Romo is also questionable.

If both play, the line may go up, if Portis is out and Romo plays the line may not move much, and if Portis plays and Romo is out the line will definitely go up. Those are factor to consider when looking at the current line of Redskins -1.5.
