  • Oddsmakers opened the Los Angeles Rams as 1.5-point favorites against Kansas City Chiefs for Week 11's Monday Night Football matchup (8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN) in Mexico City.
  • The over/under of 63 is also likely the highest NFL total of all-time.
  • Using The Action Network's public betting data, we analyze how early Week 11 betting action is moving both the point spread and over/under.

In Week 11, the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams will travel to Mexico City for a matchup on Monday Night Football (8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN). Both teams are legitimate Super Bowl 53 contenders and sport high-powered offenses.

As a result, oddsmakers opened the over/under at 63.5, likely the highest NFL total of all-time.

Early Week 11 bettors think that’s a bit too high, as 61% of tickets wagered on the total have played the under. Oddsmakers have reacted by adjusting the over/under down to 63.

Money is also coming in on the Rams side’ of the point spread, as 73% of dollars wagered are taking Los Angeles. With 53% of betting tickets on the Chiefs, we can deduce that the larger wagers are laying the points with the Rams.

In fact, the line has moved from LA -1.5 to -2.5 , suggesting that the early action has been enough to warrant a reaction from oddsmakers.

There’s still more than a week for money to come down on this game and it’ll be interesting to monitor where this historically high over/under ends up, as well as how bettors react should the point spread reach the key number of -3.
