NFL Public Betting Report – Week 6 – ATP Picks

October 18, 2020
nfl division odds 2019

The games kick off in an hour and a half and the numbers are in. The public has been placing their bets all week and the sportsbooks have adjusted lines accordingly.

Many times people will use the public betting numbers to shape their very own picks. Some people bet “against the public” (ATP) as their entire betting strategy. And although it is not foolproof, it has been used to some effect by sports bettors in the past.

The best ATP bets are the ones that are considered “marquee” games which the public knows the teams very well. Since the NFL is comprised of only 32 teams and the NFL is America’s most popular league, every game is considered marquee. The method is that if both the total # of tickets as well as the total $ bet are lopsided 70% or higher, you bet opposite of the public.
