The Panthers-Patriots line has now both been bet up and down, depending on where you look, and guys... if this doesn't make something obvious, I don't know what will.
I will cut to the chase here.
This is not a picks article. You will get no prediction or game breakdown (but you can find one here).
I am here to talk about a serious issue. Every day, thousands of sports bettors lose money because they fail to shop for better lines.
Do you need proof? Just look at the current lines for this week's matchup between the Carolina Panthers and the New England Patriots. Here we have a game that first hit the board at 8.5, but now can be found anywhere from 8 to 10.5 points, depending on where you are shopping.
Yes, you read that correctly. Two entire points.
To some of you just getting into the game that might not sound like much, but to those of us who have sweated out a few close ones in the past, those two points make a world of difference.
To put this in perspective, last week five games, that's about 1/3rd of the entire schedule, ended within two points of the final spread offering. While it is uncommon to see such gaps in the markets, it does happen, and fellas, it is happening right now.
For those of you who already have multiple accounts, enjoy being able to rest a bit easier knowing that you are able to give yourself a little buffer this weekend.
And for the rest of you... don't say I didn't warn you. Think of me when they snap the ball with a few seconds left on the clock and your bet is still on the line.
Wish you had those two points now. Don't ya?
