Early Line Moves - Week 2

Week 2 of the regular season starts early again with New England hosting the New York Jets on Thursday from Gillette Stadium. The first betting shop to open odds for the second week was CRIS, a major offshore outfit.

Below are the early line moves since the numbers were posted at 8:00 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Early Moves

New England vs. N.Y. Jets

Open: Patriots -10
Monday: Patriots -12.5

Betting Notes - The Patriots have won the last four encounters (3-1 ATS) against the Jets but the previous two games played in Foxboro were decided by nine (30-21) and three points (29-26). New England dropped its home opener last season, falling to Arizona 20-18 as a 13 1/2-point favorite.

Indianapolis vs. Miami

Open: Pick 'em
Monday: Colts -3

Betting Notes - The Colts beat the Dolphins 23-20 last season as 2 1/2-point home underdogs. Including 2012 and last week's win over Oakland, the Colts are 8-1 at Lucas Oil Stadium with Andrew Luck as their starting quarterback.

Arizona vs. Detroit
Open: Pick 'em
Monday: Lions -1.5

Betting Notes - The Lions went 2-6 both SU and ATS on the road last season, victories coming against the Eagles and Jaguars, who went a combined 6-26. One of the six losses in 2012 came to Arizona, who destroyed Detroit 38-10 in Week 15.

Oakland vs. Jacksonville
Open: Raiders -3.5
Monday: Raiders -5.5

Betting Notes - Oakland hasn't been a sound investment when listed as a favorite in recent seasons, producing a 4-15-1 record versus the number in its last 20 situations. In 2012, the Raiders were 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS when listed as favorites. Oakland defeated Jacksonville 26-23 last season at home, but failed to cover the point-spread (6.5). Blaine Gabbert (hand) has been ruled 'out' for Sunday by the Jaguars, which means Chad Henne will start at quarterback.

Total Adjustments

Cleveland at Baltimore
Open: 42
Monday: 43.5

Betting Notes - The Ravens gave up 49 points to Denver in Week 1, which helped the 'over' cash. If you include the preseason numbers, Baltimore is 5-0 to the 'over' this season. However, the Browns watched the 'under' cash in their opening week loss at home to Miami and the last four divisional battles between the pair has seen the 'under' cash.

Denver at N.Y. Giants
Open: 52.5
Monday: 54.5

Betting Notes - The Broncos scored 49 points in Week 1, 35 of them coming in the second-half. The Giants turned the ball over six times but still managed to put 30 points on the board in their 36-30 road loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. Including the outcome last Thursday, Denver has scored 30-plus points in nine of 10 home games with Peyton Manning under center. On the road last season, the Broncos were just as dangerous on offense (27.6 PPG). This will be the third battle between Peyton and Eli Manning. When he was the QB of the Colts, Peyton beat the Giants and Eli twice, 26-21 in 2006 and 38-14 in 2010.

Future Update

The LVH SuperBook in Las Vegas updated their NFL future odds. Even though three of the first five choices are from the NFC, the early line for Super Bowl XLVIII still has the AFC listed as a one-point favorite, which moved up from a pick 'em. The total also moved from 50 to 51 1/2 points.
