Line Moves: Chargers Chalk vs. Jets

While most of the games on this week’s NFL betting card have had a line movement of only a half-point or none at all so far, five have seen significant line movements of two or more points.

Here’s an inside look at those five games with the significant line movements in Week 7. From these line movements, it would appear that football bettors were not too impressed with last week’s Monday Night Football game between New York and Miami.

Under predicted in Browns vs Seahawks

A pair of teams that rank near the bottom of key offensive and defensive stat categories battle in Cleveland as the rested Seahawks come to town as small underdogs.

Good luck finding any meaningful trends in the head-to-head history. They have only met three times, with a close low-scoring, a close high-scoring game and a blowout in the mix.

Interestingly, Seattle comes off a bye week where they have traditionally struggled (2-10 ATS past 12 years following a bye). But they hit their bye with momentum, shocking the Giants on the road back in Week 5.

Injury Report: Palmer in for Raiders

No injury in the NFL caused more of a stir this week than the one to Oakland Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell. It wasn’t just the injury to Campbell that caused the commotion; it was who they went out and got to replace him.

NFL props: Passing Fancy Odds

Is John Beck a passing fancy in Washington with Rex Grossman waiting in the wings?

What about Christian Ponder in Minnesota with overpaid, over-the-hill Donovan McNabb creeping in the shadows for the Vikings?

Bodog loves to stir the pot on quarterback props and it seems each week brings new QB drama and new faces to bet on. This week, the main attraction is Carson Palmer, newly minted Oakland Raider starter.

Bye Week Trends Impact Week 7 Odds

Like it or not, bye weeks can have a significant impact on your NFL handicapping, whether a team is heading into an off week or coming out of one.

 

A team coasting into a bye week at 6-0 may rest a banged-up player, knowing that a loss doesn’t wreck their season. A team hitting the bye at 1-5 may throw everything but the kitchen sink at that game to ensure hey have a shot at the playoffs coming out of the bye.

Palmer Era Starts in Oakland

Hated rivals clash again in Oakland as the Chiefs visit the Raiders with the Carson Palmer era beginning for Raider Nation.

The roadies have done very well lately, with Kansas City going 7-1 SU in its last eight trips to face their AFC West foes and going back to 1983 they are 15-4 ATS in 19 visits. But does that hold up in 2011 as the improving Raiders (4-1-1 ATS) host the struggling, injury-riddled Chiefs?

Game Preview - Cardinals underdogs vs Steelers at Arizona

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Arizona Cardinals Odds

4-2TEAM RECORD1-4

It's a rematch of Super Bowl XLV but in reality it's more about the Steelers getting ready for a playoff run and the Cardinals trying to get back on track.

The Steelers opened as 3-point favorites against a Cards team that has been a reliable UNDER after their bye, going 5-1 in the past six games in that situation. But at home recently, it has been the opposite situation with Arizona playing 9 OVERs in 11 games.

The Steelers have only lost three times in the past 20 games when they were favored and this spread should hold up during the week. Watch the status of injured Steelers regulars to see if this point spread moves during the week.

Titans Texans Trends Point OVER

The past five times the Tennessee Titans hosted the Houston Texans, the game went OVER the total.

With Andre Johnson still out and with the Texans struggling against Baltimore, is the OVER the best bet on the Week 7 NFL odds menu? Houston is 5-1 favoring the UNDER this season and they get a Tennessee team coming off its bye week.

Recently, Houston is just 1-8 SU in its last nine games on the road, while the Titans own a 7-3 ATS edge in 10 recent meetings.

Bears Underdogs vs Bucs in London

Would you like a spot of tea with your Chicago Bears vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers wager this week?

The NFL goes back to London for the fifth straight year and two teams coming off statement wins are making the trek to Wembley Stadium. The Bucs arrived Monday and will run practices during the week while the Bears arrive Friday.

Tampa Bay came up with a huge 26-20 win over the Saints last week, while the Bears crushed the Vikings. But Chicago encounters an unfavorable trend heading into their bye week - they are just 2-7 ATS in the past nine seasons before a bye week.

Miami to Continue Bronco Domination?

Miami remains one of three winless teams and comes home to face a beatable Denver Broncos squad who will embark on a Tim Tebow regime.

That regime could last a quarter, a game, or maybe a season or two, but the former Heisman winner returning to Florida will create a bit of a circus atmosphere. Miami just wants a win and did not play well in losing to the Jets on Monday night. [ Check out story on Tim Tebow prop bets this week ]
