MNF line moves: Quarterback news shifts spread

Bettors can`t count on much in preseason football, but they`ll jump all over news about quarterback playing time when they get a chance.

Sharp action against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday afternoon temporarily dipped the Bengals down a full point to 4 ½-point pups against the Green Bay Packers tonight before the line moved back up to Cincy -5.

“I think it went back up to -5 when it was said Brett Favre was expected to play into the third quarter,” says Nigel from BetWWTS.com.

More surprisingly was the news that Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer, who underwent major surgery to rebuild his knee during the offseason, is also expected to play into the third quarter.

Palmer hasn`t taken a single snap all preseason and until recently, had been looking at the pass rush during practice to make sure no one touched his leg.

“That’s’ the report coming in from Vegas, that he is going to play into the third quarter,” says Nigel. “Head coach [Marvin Lewis] hasn’t said it, but sources are saying third quarter.”

Meanwhile, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy says he wants Favre and the first team offense to get as much time together as possible before the Sept. 10 season opener against the Chicago Bears.

Favre isn’t expected to play during Green Bay’s final preseason game next week as many teams avoid playing their premiere starters to avoid injury.

Tonight’s total is 40.
