No Bloodbath For Bookies… But Close

There were not a whole lot of dominant teams getting lopsided action in the NFL Week 9, but there were two standouts that went the way of the public.

Philadelphia as a -7 road favorite in Seattle had well over 75 percent of the action at most online gambling websites heading into game time.  They clobbered Seattle by a score of 26-7.  Some books had the Eagles getting as much as 80 percent or higher action.  Philadelphia was the most bet on team of the afternoon games.

Arizona was another big public favorite that also managed to dominate on the road in St. Louis by a score of 34-13.

The most bet on game of the afternoon was Green Bay Packers vs. Tennessee Titans, and what a good one that turned out to be.   While the Titans did manage to push with a 3 point win, there may have been some pain still felt in this game as the line opened above 3 at a number of sportsbooks including Sportsbook.com where the line opened at -5 ½. 

The showdown between New England and Indianapolis was mostly even action. 

Monday Night Football will see plenty of action.  Heading into Monday, 65 percent of the public was on the Washington Redskins as -2 favorites verses the Pittsburgh Steelers.
