  • The Kansas City Chiefs-Los Angeles Rams game (8:15 p.m. ET Monday, ESPN) has officially been moved from Mexico City to Los Angeles due to poor field conditions.
  • As a result, odds were taken off the board, but reopened shortly after with the Rams listed as 4-point home favorites.

Well, that didn’t take long. On Tuesday afternoon, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the NFL was discussing whether or not the Week 11 Chiefs-Rams game would be played at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City due to the poor field conditions.

We don’t need to ruminate any longer, as Schefter recently broke the news that the game would indeed be moved to Los Angeles.

Prior to news of the move, the Rams had settled in as 2.5-point favorites. However, with the game heading to California, Pinnacle reopened the Rams as 4-point favorites, but quickly adjusted that number down to -3.5.

The rest of the market has followed Pinnacle’s lead and reopened LA -3.5 as well.

The over/under hasn’t seen much of an adjustment as the number is right back at the historically high 63.5.

Earlier in the day, I polled a handful of oddsmakers regarding the status of bets placed before the location was moved.

Each book varies so be sure to check with your sportsbook about their rules on venue changes.
