Week 9 in the NFL is a bit of a mixed bag for moneyline odds. We have options at all three major sportsbooks: 5Dimes, Pinnacle and bet365. Below are the odds for the week including sportsbook edge from the implied probability. Another item of note is that there are games off the board at all the books, but curiously they are different games. That should mean some pretty big line moves early this week.
Week 9 Best Bet: Atlanta Falcons vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Falcons and the Buccs lead the way this week with a favorable dog line available at bet365 set at +165. That gives us a lowest combined sportsbook edge for the week of 2.02%. A good close game to handicap this week.
Week 8 Best Bet: Carolina Panthers vs. LA Rams
This game features strongly both at Pinnacle and 5Dimes this week. The books agree on the Falcons, setting their lines at -180, but you gain a few points at 5Dimes who has the Rams line at +165 giving us an acceptable sportsbook edge of 2.06%
Week 8 Best Bet: Dallas Cowboys vs Cleveland Browns
Tough spot here, with long odds on Cleveland…for good reason…there isn’t much value on either side, but you can find a lowered edge on bet365 with a +255 Browns line giving you more reason to consider the longshot. That gets the sportsbook edge down to 2.19%, but that likely only holds value for the dog bettor right now.
