nfl bet percentages week 1

Many sports bettors and professional handicappers like to pay attention to where the money is going on games. Some look at this numbers just as a curiosity while their use them to actually help mold their picks.

Referring to the latter, the theory of using public betting statistics to mold your actual bets is called ATP (Against the Public) betting. It has been around for many decades. When I worked at a sports bar many decades ago, there was a guy that would come in well before the game and quietly ask each bar fly who they liked in that night’s game (against the spread). If there was a clear cut favorite among the patrons, he would go outside, call his bookie and bet the opposite. More times than not he won the bet.  Of course, it is not foolproof science.
