  • The game of the week should be Chargers-Chiefs (8:20 p.m. ET Thursday, FOX/NFL Network) and both the spread and over/under have seen interesting line movement.
  • The Raiders-Bengals game (1 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS) won't be watched by many, but big bettors have put their money on Oakland plus the hook.
  • The Redskins-Jaguars game (1 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS), which will rival OAK-CIN for ugliest game of the week, has the lowest over/under since 2012.

Week 15 features games on the very far ends of the spectrum of entertainment. The poles, if you will.

Given the season, I’d say the Chargers-Chiefs game is at the North Pole. Perhaps one of the best games we’ll see all season and on a Thursday?!

At the South Pole we have Raiders-Bengals and Redskins-Jaguars. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

But these games all have interesting betting stories to tell, as do the games that lie in between.

Here’s what’s gone down since the market opened up on Sunday night.

All data as of Tuesday at noon ET.

Big Line Moves

Detroit Lions at Buffalo Bills (-2.5)

For the second week in a row, it looks like the Bills are going to be a semi-popular pick. Sixty-seven percent of bettors took them last week against the Jets, and shockingly enough, 58% of bettors are back on the wagon.

Not only are the Bills getting the majority of bets, they’re also getting the large majority of money. At almost 80%, we can see why the line has moved from a pick’em to Buffalo -2.5 since opening.

Houston Texans at New York Jets (+6)
