NFL injuries, trends, weather, football picks, public betting trends, and betting intel are up for Sunday. Here are key news and notes for both fantasy football and sports betting:
Bryce Petty get the start at QB for the Jets. Their top two signal callers Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith are out. The public is not fond of betting unders, but this is the only game in which the majority of wagers are on a low-scoring affair with 54 percent betting the game under the total.
Green Bay is tied for the top consensus bet at the sportsbooks, with 82 percent of offshore and Las Vegas bets on them. However, road favorites as the top public bet is the rule, not the exception.
The game over the total is the most popular sportsbook at with a stunning 86 percent on the over. Though Philadelphia is 4-4 ATS, they have the league’s second best sweat barometer AKA margin of cover at +9.2.
The Falcons have gone over 8-1 by a whopping 13.9 points per game, both league highs.
There was some doubt earlier in the week, but the Buccaneers will have QB Jameis Winston and star WR Mike Evans.
The Fins-Bolts over is very popular among the bookies with 82 percent totals bets on the over. The fact the Chargers are the second biggest over team in the NFL, exceeding the total in 7-of-9 by 8.8 points per game may be a contributing factor.
Dallas is the top team in the NFL to bet on in terms of margin of cover and record (tied with Pats). Dallas is 7-1 covering by an average of 9.2 points per game.
San Francisco is the worst spread team in the NFL at 1-7 -6.5 points per game.
