I called Scooch yesterday to get his take on this weekend's biggest NFL line movements. He had loads to say about the games below, but also pointed out something interesting: The monster games we talk about aren't always the monster games bookmakers think about. An AFC North tilt like the Bengals-Ravens is great for fans, ho hum for bookmakers. Same with the Sanchezes versus the Dolphins. Scooch's worry this weekend: the Vikings at the Rams. "That is a monster game for us, already," he told me. How come? Not a whole lot of people are betting the Rams, even as double-digit underdogs.
