Breaking down Week 15 line movement as of Friday morning

We’ve got a few interesting lines in Week 15, with some unexpected movement.

The NFL opened up Week 15 on Thursday evening with a one-sided affair in Baltimore. The Ravens crushed the Jets 42-21 as quarterback Lamar Jackson further cemented his MVP candidacy with a five-touchdown performance.

We head into the weekend with the main slate coming up and final injury reports soon arriving. There are some significant names that will be questionable at best, including JuJu Smith-Schuster, T.Y. Hilton, and Jared Cook, among many others. Those are not names that will push the point spread too much, but we’ve seen some intriguing movement for injury and other reasons.

With that in mind, here is where the Week 15 point spreads sit heading into the start of the practice week. Where you fade or follow the public, this kind of movement is worth noting and will inform some decision-making.

The biggest move this week is Rams-Cowboys, and it’s a big one. The Cowboys opened as field goal favorites, but the Rams are now a 1.5-point favorite. You rarely see this kind of swing when there isn’t a significant injury. Much of the betting world loves the Rams this week. It’s not surprising given how well they’re playing and how poorly the Cowboys are playing, but if you’re one to fade the public.....

Here’s a rundown of DraftKings Sportsbook line movement as of Friday morning.
