Week Four NFL Line Moves
Who The Pros Are Betting This Weekend
WILLEMSTAD, CURACAO (September 26, 2006)—Every Sunday, PinnacleSports.com is one of the first sportsbooks in the world to post betting lines on the following week’s NFL games, giving players the opportunity to bet nearly a full week in advance of kickoff. Expert handicappers and, sharp sports bettors regularly place wagers on these early lines before the oddsmakers have a chance to ‘sharpen’ the point spreads. Early betting by these professionals and skilled handicappers gives unique insight into how the games will play out each week and now PinnacleSports.com is letting you know which teams the sharp bettors are backing this weekend.
The largest sports betting site on the Internet, PinnacleSports.com opened betting on every game in week 4 of the NFL regular season before week three’s games had even finished. Pinnacle Sports has already received tremendous volume on this weekend’s games and the oddsmakers have adjusted the point spreads accordingly as early bettors took positions on several match-ups, including:
Indianapolis @ New York Jets
The Colts opened as 7.5-point favorites at PinnacleSports.com, and after early sharp action, the line now stands at Indy -9. The sportsbook has received nearly two times as many bets on the Colts versus the host Jets.
Dallas @ Tennessee
There’s been a lot of early action on this game with nearly three times as many bets on Dallas coming off the bye week. The point spread opened at Cowboys -7 (-104), but early betting has moved the line to Dallas -9.5 (-106). If this trend continues throughout the week, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Dallas as double-digit road favorites.
Cleveland @ Oakland
In a battle of winless teams, early bettors have jumped on the Browns bandwagon following their near upset of Baltimore. Pinnacle Sportsbook opened Cleveland as a 1-point road favorites, but a flurry of sharp action has moved the line to Browns -3 (+109).
Jacksonville @ Washington
In a week full of road favorites, Pinnaclesports.com opened the line with Jacksonville listed at -2.5 (-104). Nearly four times as many bets have been placed on the Jaguars to date, but the line has only moved seven cents to -2.5 (-111) mainly because there’s opposition from sharp bettors who like Washington as home underdogs.
New England @ Cincinnati
This game opened with the Bengals at -4 (-113) and early sharp action has moved the line to Cincinnati -6 (+102). After the Patriots home loss to Denver Sunday night, Pinnacle Sports Book has seen bets on Cincinnati come in at a rate of 4 ˝ to 1 as on those on the Patriots.
