Minnesota Vikings at Los Angeles Rams (-7)
Minnesota has just gone into Week 3 with a home tilt as a 16.5-point favourite, unfortunately, the other side was Buffalo, not a very good week for the boys. Even though the beginning of the news was very promising the ending for the Vikings was quite devastating.
They started with 27-0 at halftime and even the popular phrase “it’s not how you start, but how you finish” couldn’t help them get the edge, and they ended up losing 27-6. But still this isn’t the end of the road for them, they can still make this work on Thursday.
While all of this has been going on, Los Angeles has been gathering up points at quite a consistent rate in Week 3. After achieving 33 and 34 points in Week 1 & 2, The Rams defeated the Los Angeles Chargers 35-23 meaning a 7.5-point chalk.
“We opened this game Rams -7, a 2 point move from our lookahead line (last week) of Rams -5,” Murray said. “We took a bet right away on the Vikings +7 and went to 6.5. But I’m pretty sure we will need the Vikings big on Thursday. Minnesota looks like it was caught looking ahead in a terrible loss at home to the Bills.
The Rams are definitely the most popular team with the public right now. They’re scoring points and covering spreads. The people are in love with them.
Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots (-9.5)
New England an amazing Super Bowl contender is off to a very bad start this season. After getting stomped at Jacksonville in Week 2, the Patriots were just out of their comfort zone in Detroit, which ended up costing them a game and 7-point fave.
With the Pats out of the gate slowly, Miami finds itself atop the AFC East. The Dolphins beat Oakland 28-20 bringing 3 points at home, but this Week 4 road trip will easily be their hardest test so far.
The Superbook moved down a tick to 9 just before the Patriots kicked off at Detroit, and then took the game off the board, which is standard operating procedure when a team is playing on Sunday night.
