New, comments

The shift at QB seems to have made bettors anxious about backing a rookie at the helm of Fisherball.

The Los Angeles Rams are back at home for Week 11 to roll out new starting QB Jared Goff against the Miami Dolphins, and the money isn’t coming in to support him.

Oddsmakers originally set the line as a “pick ‘em”, but since news came in yesterday of Goff ascending the position depth chart to supplant former starting QB and now backup Case Keenum bettors have begun flooding toward the Dolphins.

When I checked the movement last night, most of the books had the line at Rams +1. As of this morning, that’s up another half point:

We’ll have to see if there’s any movement throughout the week based on the injury reports, but it’s an interesting sign that the international audience with money at stake isn’t backing the first chapter of the Jared Goff era.

Here’s hoping that stake pot gets blown up.
