This line sticks out because the Bears looked awful against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. Granted they have longer to prepare for the Rams, but Jeff Fisher as his team playing consistently and playing tough.
The Rams were behind early against the Redskins and they kept playing and eventually won. The week prior they held the Detroit Lions to a reasonable score and the Lions boast a better offense than the Bears. The Bears will win this game, but this line seems higher than it should be.
The Kansas City Chiefs are horrible and they have been blown out in the first two games of the season. Now they travel to the Big Easy to take on a Saints team who are desperate for a win.
What stands out in this game is how high this line is. The Saints are not playing good football and they have a defense that is just as suspect as the Chiefs. The Chiefs moved the ball well on offense in their losses and there are plenty of reasons to believe that they can keep this game closer than nine
The Miami Dolphins pulled off a stunner this week when they beat down the Raiders at home behind a big running game by Reggie Bush. Now they welcome the New York Jets to South Beach and hope to get two wins in a row.
The oddsmakers are not buying in on the Dolphins yet as they have made the Jets three point road favorites. However before blindly jumping on the Jets bandwagon, keep in mind they are depleted I the secondary and the Dolphins offensive line looked great.
These are just a few of the opening lines that provide value heading into the third week of the young NFL season.
