Chris Fargis, senior director of trading risk at Fanatics Sportsbook, touched on a few matchups in the NFL Week 2 odds market, including the Thursday night clash between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles.
“Although the line has dropped from -7.5 to -6, our customers are against the move and backing the Eagles in the Thursday night matchup,” Fargis said.
That’s not a surprise, as public/recreational bettors were heavily on Philly in last week’s 25-20 win at New England. The Eagles covered as 3.5-point favorites.
As for the 1.5-point drop from Eagles -7.5 to -6, other sportsbooks have reported sharp play on the Vikings.

The Nittany Lions opened -16.5 at BetMGM and are already down to -14.5 on the road. But that’s not indicative of action midweek.
“It’s all Penn State money so far. I would expect that to continue through Saturday,” BetMGM senior trader Cameron Drucker said.
“So far, the sharp action has come in on the Gators, as we’ve seen the spread drop to under a touchdown from the opener of Tennessee -7.5,” Drucker said, noting the Vols are now -6.5. “However, I would anticipate us needing the Gators. It will be interesting to see the final numbers come kickoff.
Drucker provided insights on two more Saturday matchups:
– LSU vs. Mississippi State: BetMGM opened visiting LSU -8.5 and has already touched -10 a couple times, with the line -9.5 (-115, bet $10 to win $18.70 total) late Wednesday night. “Interesting early sharp action on LSU that drove the number to -9.5. I think we will be cheering for the Bulldogs come Saturday.”
– Minnesota vs. North Carolina: The host Tar Heels are up to -7.5 from a -6.5 opener. “An extreme clash of styles here, with Minnesota’s ground-and-pound vs. North Carolina’s air-it-out spread with QB Drake Maye. The public is on North Carolina so far, and I would expect that to continue.”
