David Payne Purdam of ESPN writes on Twitter: “For some Las Vegas bookmakers, yesterday was one of their most lucrative NFL Sundays ever”.

Ten of thirteen NFL underdogs failed to cover the spread with the Oakland Raiders the single most wagered on side this season so far, according to Dave Mason of BetOnline.

Purdue added: “For some bookmakers, it was their most lucrative NFL Sunday ever. For the betting public, it was a multimillion-dollar defeat”.

He also reported that the books on average kept approximately 15 percent of the amount wagered compared to the typical 4 to 6 percent.

"We had a ton of money-line parlays on the Steelers, ton of teasers," Jay Rood, vice president of MGM race and sports, said. "That was a complete blow to the public."

Sports bettors weren’t completely blown out as Atlanta and New Orleans (both significant public favorites) did come out on top Sunday.
