Week 8 NFL Teams Bookies Rooting For

 2017 payperhead09

We’re at the halfway point of the NFL Season. The key to understanding what online bookie agents think rests with weekly NFL betting odds.

Bookmakers make money primarily on the fee, the vig or juice, charged for every bet made.

Bookies also make a lot of money by not using their layoff accounts. Check out the 4 biggest games with teams that bookmakers are likely to be rooting for this Sunday.

San Francisco 49’ers +10.5 at Philadelphia Eagles

The line has gone from SF +10.5 to SF +13. That’s a big move on a betting line. 63% of NFL handicappers love the Eagles at +13.

What it means is that only 37% want to back the San Francisco 49’ers.

More than a couple of online bookie agents are going to allow the money on Philly to ride. If SF wins the game, Eagles bettors could provide major profit to agents.

New York Jets +4 vs Atlanta Falcons

The Jets at +4 aren’t a popular bet versus the Atlanta Falcons who go into Week 8 off a stunning 7 to 23 loss to the New England Patriots.

67% of handicappers prefer the Falcons. Pay per head agents might let money on the Jets ride.

Those bookmakers who believe that Atlanta’s problems run deeper than just the Falcons being in a rut, stand to make a lot of money if Atlanta doesn’t cover the spread.

As is usually the case, the Falcons appear to have already been over bet in this match up.

Washington Redskins +2.5 vs Dallas Cowboys

How much better is Dallas than Washington? A full 60% of per had agents believe that Dallas is at least 2.5 points better than Washington.

The Cowboys looked great pummeling the San Francisco 49’ers. SF doesn’t match up well with a mobile QB like Dallas’ Dak Prescott.

Washington’s defense matches up much better. Washington battles Dallas at home. That might be enough for agents to allow the money to ride on Washington versus Dallas against the spread.

Detroit Lions +3 vs Pittsburgh Steelers

56% of bettors are all over the Steelers to cover the 3 points. This might be the biggest profit-generating game in NFL Week 8.

Detroit is 5 and 0 ATS in their last 5 games following a bye week while Pitt is 1 and 4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win.

Online bookies are likely to allow any money bet on Pittsburgh to ride. Why not?

Detroit gets Pitt at home off a bye where they’ve been incredibly successful the past 5 NFL Seasons.
