Sports handicappers are not buying into Rex Ryan turning around the Buffalo Bills, at least not in week 1 as the Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo’s foe this week is favored by 66 percent of gamblers. Joe Duffy and Peter Loshak have week 1 NFL winners.

The most popular home team is the Arizona Cardinals at home to the New Orleans Saints with 65 percent. However, with home field advantage worth three-points, the fact that Arizona is laying only one-point means the public is actually backing the perceived inferior team, an uncommon tendency.

As far as totals bets, three unders, the Browns-Jets at 71 and the Panthers-Jaguars, and Chiefs-Texans both at 69 are tied with an over the Giants-Cowboys on Sunday Night Football as the most widespread over/under wagers.

The famed Hilton SuperContest has a different road chalk as the most popular bet: 664 contestants chose the Miami Dolphins over Washington laying 3.5. Aforementioned Arizona is next at 589. However, shockingly a road dog, the St. Louis Rams getting four to Seattle are next with 474 picks. The Jets and Packers round out the top five at 381 and 380.

Going back to preseason, Joe Duffy’s Picks is 13-4 in the NFL and we are literally just getting started. We are 23-11 with all Wise Guys many being MLB underdogs and are 25-12 with all football since preseason.
