NFL Week 4 Public Betting Report
With kickoff for Week 4 of the NFL season nearing, be sure to find out where the Public Betting money is going and if you need to adjust your wagers for today’s action.
Of the games taking place on Sunday, the one team with the most public support when it comes to wagers is the Philadelphia Eagles, as they travel to face the Tennessee Titans this afternoon at 1PM ET. According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, the Eagles are a slight road favorite, as they are getting odds of -3.5 points against the Titans. When it comes to the Public Betting, the Eagles are currently getting 69 percent of the wagers as the road favorite. The return of Jay Ajayi in the backfield could be giving bettors some added enthusiasm for the Eagles, who have been lackluster on offense thus far in 2018. The Titans haven’t been moving the ball much this year and continue to have Marcus Mariota dealing with a nerve injury in his elbow and hand.
Another team with a lot of support at the betting window is the Los Angeles Chargers, who are playing host to the San Francisco 49ers today at 4:25PM ET. According to oddsmakers, the Chargers are a big favorite at home, getting odds of -10 points against the 49ers. That spread isn’t scaring bettors, as 67 percent of the wagers are going on the Bolts at home. Bettors must feel the 49ers have little chance due to the loss of Jimmy Garoppolo to a season-ending ACL injury last week. C.J. Beathard will be getting the start and he has just 1,430 passing yards with a 54.9 percent completion rate in his career. The Chargers have won and covered in four straight meetings between these two.
The game that has the betting public split the most is the AFC East battle with the New England Patriots hosting the Miami Dolphins at 1PM ET. According to oddsmakers, the Patriots are listed as a 6.5-point favorite at home against the Dolphins. When it comes to the wagers, 52 percent are going on the Dolphins on the road. The Patriots are coming off back-to-back double-digit losses and have looked awful on both sides of the ball. Miami is off to a 3-0 start, but hasn’t really had much of a schedule thus far.
