Sportsbooks Full of Smiles Following Upset Filled NFL Week 9

November 9, 2015

The unusual touchdown on the final play in the New York Giants win of 32-18 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made OVER bettors ecstatic and under bettors joyless. It also cashed a parlay of four teams that paid out over $80,000 at one sportsbook.

Nevertheless, that book as well as most in Vegas and offshore enjoyed their best Sunday thus far in the 2015 NFL regular season.

The sportsbooks cleaned house on Sunday with favorites that were heavily backed such as the Falcons, Packers and Broncos all losing straight up.

One sportsbook said that without a doubt, the weekend was the best of any through the first 9 weeks.

Underdogs were 6-3 against the number on Sunday with four dogs winning outright. One of the biggest games for sportsbooks with the overtime upset win by the Tennessee Titans against the New Orleans Saints 34-28.

The win by Indianapolis over Denver 27-24 was also big as well as the upset by San Francisco over Atlanta 17-16.

Through mid morning betting on one offshore book, the Falcons, Broncos and Packers had attracted over 80% of the overall money that had been wagered on each of their games. The games were the three most lopsided all day.

The three highly popular favorites not only did not cover the numbers, but also lost outright, eliminating a number of parlay and teaser bets said bookmakers.

The win helped sportsbooks to gain back some of what has been lost this season. The season for sportsbooks has not been that good, as favorites have been winning outright and covering which tends to help the public bettor.

The weird play that ended up helping public bettors reduce their losses took place on the last play of the New York/Tampa Bay game. Trevin Wade a cornerback for New York recovered a fumble following multiple laterals by Tampa Bay and returned to for a TD. The score pushed the game to an OVER.

The win by books would have been even bigger if Dallas would have covered as a 3-point home dog in an overtime loss to Philadelphia 33-27.
