NFL Betting: Week 11 Opening Lines

The Atlanta Falcons were tagged with their first loss of the season over the weekend, but that didn't stop them from being opened as big favorites on the NFL betting lines at the sportsbooks for their Sunday matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Falcons lost 31-27 at home to the New Orleans Saints last time out, dropping them to 8-1 SU and 6-3 ATS on the season. Still, they're listed as 11.5-point home favorites for Sunday afternoon at home against the Cardinals at 5Dimes; Arizona is 4-5 SU and 3-5-1 ATS on the season.

Atlanta and Arizona last met back in September 2010, with the Falcons cruising to a 41-7 win as a 7-point favorite on the NFL betting lines in that contest. The OVER has paid out in each of the last three meetings between the NFC teams.

The other two double-digit spreads on the opening NFL lines at 5Dimes have the Patriots at -10.5 at home against the Colts, and the Texans at -17 at home against the Jaguars. As well, it's the Cowboys at -8 at home against the Browns, and the Broncos at -8 at home against the Chargers.

Home underdogs on the weekend include Detroit +3 vs. Green Bay, Kansas City +3 vs. Cincinnati, and Oakland +4.5 vs. New Orleans, while the Buccaneers/Panthers game in Carolina opened as a pick'em on the NFL betting lines at 5Dimes.

Both the Eagles/Redskins and Bears/Niners matchups remained off the board early in the week due to injuries to Philadelphia's Michael Vick, Chicago's Jay Cutler, and San Francisco's Alex Smith.
