NFL Week 2 Public Betting
Before placing your wagers for Sunday’s NFL Week 2 action, you may want to see how the Public Betting is trending for today’s games.
There is some very lopsided betting going on today, but none more than the game featuring the Tennessee Titans hosting the Houston Texans at 1PM ET. According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, the Texans are the favorite on the road, as they are getting odds of -3 points against the Titans. When it comes to the Public Betting, the Texans are currently getting 83 percent of the wagers as the road favorite. The public is probably backing Houston given the injury issues with the Titans. The Titans lost tight end Delanie Walker to the IR in Week 1 and tackles Taylor Lewan and Jack Conklin are bout out with injuries. Quarterback Marcus Mariota is also battling an elbow issue. By comparison, Houston comes in pretty healthy.
Another team with a lot of support at the betting window is the Los Angeles Chargers, who are on the road today to face the Buffalo Bills at 1PM ET. According to oddsmakers, the Chargers are a big 7.5-point favorite on the road. That spread isn’t scaring bettors, as 81 percent of the wagers are going on the road Chargers. Both teams are coming off lopsided losses in Week 1, but the Bills suffered the worst of them all in a 47-3 loss to the Ravens. Buffalo is going with rookie QB Josh Allen under center today. The Chargers have won and covered in three straight meetings with the Bills.
The game that has the betting public split the most is the AFC East clash with the New York Jets hosting the Miami Dolphins at 1PM ET. Oddsmakers are listing the Jets as a 2.5-point favorite at home over the Dolphins. When it comes to the wagers, just 53 percent are going on the Jets at home. Both teams are coming off Week-1 wins, as the Jets defeated the Lions 48-17 in Detroit while the Dolphins bested the Titans at home, 27-20. New York rookie QB Sam Darnold will make his first home start in this game. The home team has won four of the last five in this series and is 3-1-1 against the spread.
