- Using the Action Network's betting tools, we've analyzed the biggest movers, most lopsided sides and key numbers for the NFL's Week 2 slate.
It’s only Week 2, but things are already getting crazy in the NFL. We have big injuries, lofty lines and big assumptions left and right. There’s already been plenty of action since lines opened on Sunday, and here are your biggest movers, most heavily bet teams and the key numbers you need to monitor.
Cardinals-Ravens Over: This bad boy moved so much that I actually felt the need to give it its own standalone article. It’s not often that you see an NFL total rise from 42.5 to 46.5 within a day of opening so it deserves special treatment.
49ers-Bengals: Only one of these teams got a win last week, but both proved they were at least somewhat competent football teams. In fact, Cincy proved that it was competent enough to not be a home dog to a middling team like the Niners.
After opening as 2-point dogs, the Bengals have moved to -1.5. There’s been some sharp action on both sides, but with 60% of bets and 75% of the cash, Cincy is the early victor when it comes to line movement.
