Though the Patriots were seeing the most lopsided action Sunday morning, according to initial reports, this was not among the most wagered on games.

The betting public was backing New England at around an 83% clip at BetOnline.  70% or greater action was on the Patriots at most sportsbooks.  The line has moved between -2.5 and -3.5 in favor of New England.  Recreational sportsbook Bovada had NE at -3.5 Sunday morning in an effort to get more action on the Dolphins. 

The Steelers vs. Bills game was the most wagered on but with relatively balanced action. 

The biggest liability of the day might come on the LA Rams in the Sunday Night Football game vs. Chicago.  Some 72% or greater of the action was coming on LA.  The line moved aggressively from -7 to -9 at BetOnline.   Heritage has only moved the line from -7 to -7.5.  Bovada has moved the line from -7 to -8.

Here's the action report for NFL Week 1 as of Sunday morning.
