The online bookmakers won nearly all the games vs. the betting public on Sunday Week 13 of the regular NFL season, including two of the biggest games.

Around 90 percent of the backing was on the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints to cover in their respective games and that did not happen.

The Patriots, in fact, lost to Miami on the road.  New Orleans managed to win in overtime and avoid a shocking upset on the road in Washington.  They remain undefeated.

Other wins for the bookies included a Raiders outright upset against Pittsburgh, the Jaguars win over Houston, the Panthers covering against Tampa Bay, the Lions covering against Cincinnati, the Browns covering at home against San Diego (a -13 ½ favorite at some books) and Seattle's win over San Francisco.

The betting public made out on Denver and Philadelphia wins.

It would be icing on the cake Sunday night if the Arizona Cardinals were to cover a +3 ½ spread against the red hot Minnesota Vikings.  This was one of the most bet on games of Week 13 with just over 85 percent of the backing on Minnesota.  As this went to press, the game was just starting.

Approximately 65 percent of the betting action was on Green Bay Monday night as a -3 point home favorite against Baltimore.
