I’ve been watching the line on the Eagles’ Week 1 matchup with the Browns since it was released a couple of months ago. And it’s on the move–in the Eagles’ favor. With Super Bowl or bust expectations soaring and what is believed by many to be a bad Cleveland Browns football team awaiting them to kickoff the season, the Eagles are nearly double-digit favorites despite the road date. The line opened in most books with the Eagles as a seven to eight point favorite, but the early money is backing the Birds as the line has now ticked up to nine points on the popular sports betting website Bovada.
Check back for more later in the week for more news on the line and our picks against the spread.
