Bookies Get Hit Hard by Colts Cover

The Indianapolis Colts cover was the biggest dagger for online bookies Sunday.  The Colts beat the St. Louis Rams by a score of 42-6.  At some books, 95 percent or more of the action was going Indy's way.

The Colts are 6-0 for the fourth time in five years and extended their regular-season win streak to 15 games. The Rams have lost 17 straight, tied for the sixth-longest losing streak in NFL history.

The gambling public was also heavily on the New Orleans Saints who managed to pull from behind to cover the -7 spread.

The Saints rallied from a 24-3 deficit in the second quarter to improve to 6-0.

New Orleans outscored Miami 36-10 in the second half, totaling 302 yards compared to the Dolphins' 159 yards after halftime.

The public did well with the New York Jets 38-0 blowout of the Oakland Raiders as well.  Nearly 80 percent of the action was going the Jets way in this game.

The Jets snapped a three-game losing streak with the largest regular-season shutout win in team history. The Jets got their first shutout since 2003 and their first road shutout since 2001.

This is the fourth time in Jets franchise history that two players have rushed for over 120 yards (Shonn Greene and Thomas Jones), and the first Jets pair since John Riggins and Carl Garrett in 1975.

The gambling public did lose a significant amount on the Falcons/Dallas game as around 80 percent of the betting action was on Atlanta, who lost to the Cowboys.
