Sunday Bloody Sunday for Sports Bettors

Sunday was by far one of the best NFL weekends the online bookmakers have seen in quite some time while the public suffered a massacre of sorts.

Bookies big wins included a Green Bay victory, San Diego losing to the Bills, the Jets losing in overtime to the Oakland Raiders and the Cowboys losing outright to the St. Louis Rams.

"The losers were the most bet on teams of the weekend," explains Payton O'Brien, Senior Editor of Gambling911.com. "It started with the Colts being the single most wagered on team of the weekend and they were 34-14 by Green Bay."

In fact, 93 percent of the betting action was going towards Indianapolis.

San Diego was also heavily bet on but lost against Buffalo.

As for Dallas losing their third straight to a team the likes of St. Louis, which incidentally won its second straight to supposedly two of the best teams in the league, it was a killer. 85 percent of the action was going towards Dallas.

Tennessee, Chicago and the New York Giants were really the only three teams that came through for the betting public on Sunday.
