NFL Week 1 Betting Notes

  • Underdogs went 8-6 ATS (against the spread) in week 1, with four winning outright in addition to one tie.
  • After the Antonio Brown release by the Raiders and addition by the Patriots, the Raiders moved from 40-1 to 100-1 to win the Super Bowl and the Patriots improved from 6-1 to 4-1. The Raiders win total stayed at 6, however now the under is being offered at -152, a much heavier price. The Patriots win total moved from 11 to 11.5 games.
  • The four most popular teams to cover the spread were the Chiefs, Browns, Ravens, and Cowboys with all having 75% or more of tickets in their favor. Three of four covered, with the Chiefs, Ravens, and Cowboys all covering the spread in convincing fashion.
  • The Philadelphia Eagles were the most popular moneyline bet of the week, and were also heavily backed to cover the spread with 90% of tickets on the Eagles to cover. After an early deficit, the Eagles came back to win easily. While the moneyline pick was a winner, a late Redskins touchdown covered the spread for the underdogs.
  • The Los Angeles Chargers and Indianapolis Colts game was subject to a lot of attention due to the shocking Andrew Luck news. Before the news, the Chargers were 3.5 point favorites. After the trade, the line closed at 6.5. Bettors that bet the Chargers before the Luck news won their bets in overtime, while bettors after the news couldn’t quite hang on to the win.
