Ten teams have attracted significant action from sharp bettors since the South Point sports book opened NFL regular-season win totals on Sunday.

The biggest bets, totaling $4,000, were on the Tennessee Titans under 9½ at minus-120. The line was adjusted to 9 with the over price at minus-125.

“We had some smarts come in here and iron (the numbers) out,” said South Point oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro, who reported a handle of more than $40,000 in the first 30 hours. “From the middle of May to the middle of August, you won’t see much change.”

But some numbers have changed due to early play.

The New England Patriots opened at 11, and after $3,000 was wagered over the total, the number was moved to 11½ (over minus-115).

Vaccaro said $3,000 of action moved the Cleveland Browns from 4 (over minus-110) to 4½ (under minus-120).

Bettors also played $3,000 on the Arizona Cardinals over 7½, so the price was adjusted from minus-110 to minus-125.

Smaller wagers between $1,000 to $2,000 showed on Buffalo (over 6), Jacksonville (over 5½), the Los Angeles Rams (over 5½), Los Angeles Chargers (under 7½), New York Giants (under 9) and New York Jets (over 5½).
