BetOnline's Dave Mason: "We Got Our Teeth Kicked In" With Early NFL Games

The betting public is certainly in a celebratory mood Sunday after the 1:00 pm ET games (and the 9 am ET game) mostly went in their favor.


"Looking like we got our teeth kicked in on the 1:00 games," Dave Mason of BetOnline acknowledged late Sunday afternoon.

A cover by Arizona could certainly help heal some wounds.  San Francisco was seeing 70% of the spread action in that game.  With plenty of time still left in that game, things were not looking good as the 49ers were up 27-3 nearing halftime.

Mason tweeted ahead of the 1 pm ET games:

"Shocker - the house needs every underdog on straights so far today.

1:00 $$$

58% BUF -2.5 v MIA
63% MIN -4 @ CAR
62% DEN -3 @ CHI
66% BAL -2 @ CLE
55% PIT -3 @ HOU
76% LAR -1 @ IND
55% NO -4 v TB
55% PHI -9 v WSH
66% CIN -2 @ TEN"

Also of note, Deshaun Watson's absence from today's game against Baltimore resulted in a line change of 4.

"Browns move from 2.5-point favorites earlier this am to 1.5-point dogs.  Money pouring in on the Ravens. More volume on them than any other non London team so far today.  60% of the cash on Baltimore so far."

The London game hurt too but there is a silver lining.

"Team @betonline_ag loves these London games. The volume is 2-3 times more than it would be if they played at 1:00.The more stand-alone games the better.

Falcons @ Jaguars $$$

57% JAX -3
80% JAX -177
63% Under 42.5"
