Bookies Get an Early Morning Beat Down in the NFL

The Minnesota Vikings beating of the Cleveland Browns in London was not the only spanking as bookmakers found themselves dealing with ongoing agony carried on from the day prior with College Football and primarily the Penn State Lions ability to cover against Ohio State.

Minnesota not only clobbered the books by covering the spread with a 33-16 outcome, they did so with a pricey money line whereby nearly all the action was on the Vikings to win outright.

Case Keenum threw for two touchdowns and Kai Forbath made four field goals as the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Cleveland Browns 33-16 at Twickenham Stadium on Sunday in the last of four games held this season in Britain.

Adam Thielen had five catches for 98 yards and a touchdown for the NFC North-leading Vikings (6-2), who trailed 13-12 at halftime -- the first time the Browns, 0-8 for the second consecutive year, claimed a mid-game lead this season.

In modern times, the Vikings have given bookies fits, finishing with winning records Against The Spread over the past few seasons. 

The Falcons failed cover against the Jets helped a little and, should Dallas lose to Washington, this will also help to minimize the damage.

Minnesota bookies in particular will want to embrace the concept of a powerful Pay Per Head platform.

The new kid on the block, TopPayPerHead.com is a Pay Per Head business backed by some of the deepest pockets in the world of offshore sports betting. A full service Pay Per Head Solution being offered at just $4 per head or less.  LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING is available.
