Top 3 Public Sides:
1. Chicago Bears -6 @ Arizona Cardinals:
% Of Bets: 71%
After an encouraging Monday night victory, the Bears are in Arizona to take on the 0-2 Cardinals. The public is all over the Bears. Even with 71% of the bets coming in, the line has only move 1 point in the Bears favor.
2. Minnesota Vikings -16.5 vs. Buffalo Bills:
% Of Bets: 67%
Since 2014, a team not named the Patriots has been favored by 16+ points only twice. That isn’t scaring the public away, as they can’t get enough of betting against the Bills.
Over the past 10 seasons, a team has been favored by 16 or more points 20 times. They are 20-0 straight up in those games, but 8-11-1 ATS.
3. New England Patriots -7 @ Detroit Lions:
% Of Bets: 83%
Nothing the public likes doing more than betting favorites in primetime games. Matt Patricia’s team has started off the season 0-2 and will be going up against his mentor in the Motor City.
Top 3 Sharp Sides:
1. LA Chargers +7 @ LA Rams:
Despite receiving close to 57% of the bets, the Rams have dropped from -7.5 point favorites to -7 (+100). According to the numbers I’m looking at, the Chargers have received close to 57% of the money. The wiseguys are expecting the Chargers to keep the LA Classico close.
2. Redskins +2.5 vs. Green Bay Packers:
The public has been all over Green Bay. Pushing the -2.5 line to -3 early in the week, before the wise guys came in and steamed that bad boy back down to +2.5. Currently, Green Bay has gotten 62% of the bets, while just 30% of the money wagered.
3. Chiefs/49ers Under 53.5:
Every public bettor and their mother wants to get in on the Chief’s scoring bonanza. The wise guys aren’t buying it. This line opened up at 54.5 and despite 75% of the bets coming in on the over, the line has dropped a full point. REVERSE LINE MOVEMENT ALERT!
Best of luck to everyone today. Pick some winners!
