Bookies Get Beat Up Badly With Sunday NFL Games

The online bookies were feeling a lot of pain Sunday night following devastating losses in the NFL.  The betting public, meanwhile, appeared to be sitting pretty.

Without a doubt, the harshest blow came at the hands of the still undefeated Tennessee Titans who beat Chicago by a touchdown.  For whatever reason, Tennessee was only a -3 favorite.    The Titans were the most bet on team everywhere.

The New England Patriots 10 point win over the Buffalo Bills was also a knockout punch to the bookies as was the Baltimore Ravens blowout of Houston.

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.
