Bettors have waited months for the return of betting on the NFL and boy did the bookies give them a good slap in the face to start the season. With the Las Vegas Raiders’ crazy Monday Night victory against Lamar Jackson who clearly cannot hold onto the ball, it was the cherry on top for the underdogs to rule week one.
For the week one slate, nine underdogs won straight up which was the highest in years. The biggest upset of them all was the Pittsburgh Steelers rolling into Buffalo and getting a statement victory at +235 ML odds. Which was one of the main bets bettors of course bet the opposite on. According to Bet MGM, public bettors went 4-12 ATS. Could this be a trend for the whole season? At the moment seven road teams are favored to win in week two. Could this be another week where public bettors attack the road favorites but now the home underdogs win?
