NFL Week 1 Public Betting
As you are planning out your Week 1 wagers in the NFL, maybe you should take a look at the latest Public Betting numbers for all of Sunday’s action.
One team getting heavy betting support today is the New Orleans Saints, as they get set to hose the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a NFC South battle at 1PM ET. According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, the Saints are heavy favorite at home, as they are getting odds of -10 points against the Bucs this afternoon. When it comes to the Public Betting, the Saints are currently getting 74 percent of the wagers despite being such a big favorite. The Bucs will be without quarterback Jameis Winston, due to a 3-game suspension. The Saints are without running back Mark Ingram, also due to a suspension. The home team has won and covered the spread in four straight meetings between these two.
Another team with a lot of support at the betting window is the Baltimore Ravens, who are set to host the Buffalo Bills today at 1PM ET. According to oddsmakers, the Ravens are a 7.5-point favorite at home against the Bills. The latest public betting numbers have the Ravens also getting 74 percent of the wagers as the favorite. The Bills are starting Nathan Peterman at quarterback and his first start last year was a mess, leaving many to think the Buffalo offense will heavily struggle against Baltimore. The Ravens also have added a lot of skill pieces on offense this offseason. The home team has won five straight in this series and covered in six of the last seven meetings.
The game that has the public most divided is the game that is perhaps the most anticipated on Sunday with he New England Patriots hosting the Houston Texans at 1PM ET. Oddsmakers have the Patriots as a 6-point favorite at home against the Texans. When it comes to the public betting, the wagers are split right down the middle at 50-50. The Texans are getting some buzz as a possible contender to unseat the Patriots in the AFC this year thanks to the return of Deshaun Watson from injury. The Patriots are without receiver Julian Edelman for the first four games of the season due to a suspension. These two met last year and New England won 36-33, but Houston easily covered a 13.5-point spread. The Pats have won seven straight over the Texas, going 5-2 against the spread in those seven games.
