Local Bookies Get Slaughtered With Week 1 NFL, Online Sites Feel Pinch

While the online sportsbooks and Pay Per Heads can get by these days by offering such loss leaders as online casinos and live in-progress betting, the local bookies tend to be less fortunate when a series of big games go down in favor of the gambling public.

Such was the case in Week 1 with both the Miami Dolphins and Green Bay Packers covering.  Both were the most heavily wagered sides of the weekend, at least early on.

Bookies were still hoping for some redemption primarily with the two Monday Night Football games.  Philadelphia and Minnesota were each seeing 75% or greater action in their respective matchups.

A cover by the New York Giants Sunday night would have helped ease the pain somewhat with Dallas seeing 60% of the action as a -7 home favorite.
