Despite a number of good match-ups in the first week of the NFL season, the public has found teams that it likes, a lot. Our Betting Trends data shows the Dolphins, Packers and 49ers are getting over 80% of public support in spread bets, while the Colts and Titans are getting over 70%. There has been plenty of line movement in these games as well.
We are seeing some good evidence of sharp money on the Texans with Pinnacle’s line on the Colts dropping from -3 to -1 and a strong public backing at 74%. There has also been some slight sharp money indicators on the Raiders with the Titans line dropping from -7 to -6. Our Smart Money betting system has also triggered a hand full of plays on these games, confirming the reverse line movement trends.
On the other side of things, we are seeing the public push both the Packers and 49ers lines moving from even to -3 and -1.5 -3 respectively.
The table bellow shows a breakdown of this week’s most lopsided games:
