The first few weeks of the NFL season anyone would have been hard pressed to find many lines above 3 or 4 points, but now as teams are showing their strengths and weaknesses, the lines have risen for this weeks games.
Let’s start with what is the biggest mismatch on paper today. The New England Patriots are on the road to face the Miami Dolphins. The Pats have not lost yet this year and the Dolphins have not won. The line on the game is New England -16, a number that is usually reserved for college games.
The Cowboys, coming off two poor performances are favored by 9 over the Vikings, who looked impressive last week in defeating the defending NFC champion Bears.
Staying in the NFC East, the Giants have reeled off four straight win s since starting the year 0-2, and that streak has made them 8.5 point favorites over San Francisco.
The Saints looked to finally play like the team from last year and they are facing a Falcon team that has been dreadful. The Saints are favored by 8.
Arizona has been up and down this year, and now they are playing with their third string quarterback, causing them to be 8 point underdogs to the Washington Redskins.
Seattle is coming off two straight losses, but they are facing a Rams team that suddenly can’t score, the Seahawks are 8.5 favorites.
As the season wears on, the point spreads are growing and growing, which can only mean at some point the underdogs will crush gamblers dreams, and that could happen this week.
