Week 2 of the NFL saw similar results as Week 1 in that gamblers and bookies for the most part alternated between wins.

Public sports bettors did well by backing New Orleans, The Giants, Oakland and Minnesota.  But the bookies made out with the biggest play of the day on New England's loss since much of the action was going the Patriots way.  They also won a little money with Chicago and Houston both winning their respective games. 

College Football was more even between bettors and bookies compared to the past two weeks where the bookmakers overwhelmingly enjoyed the upper hand.

Losses by USC, BYU and Notre Dame helped bookmakers out as did the failure of the Florida Gators to cover.  Wins by Boise State and Cincinnati helped the sports betting public.  All in all it was still a very good week in College Football for the books.
