NFL Public Betting Action Report Week 1

September 4, 2019
betting report nfl week 1

We normally would wait a little later in the week to write this article but these lines have been up for a very long time. The public has had their chance to study the teams, watch the pre-season games and bet their picks.

Knowing which way the pubic is betting on games can influence the way some people bet. Often times if the public is heavy on a side that they like, then the bettor tends to stay away from that game.

Another way the numbers are useful is for contrarian or ATP bettors. ATP stand for Against the Public. The notion is that sportsbooks make money year after year from people’s general lack of being able to win long term. Betting against the public on major lopsided games, they figure, is a way to be on the same side as the sportsbook. It is not a full-proof way to bet but some people have claimed to make a tidy sum betting ATP.

A true public sided play would be 66% or greater. The higher the number, the better for ATP bettors.

Anyway, without further delay here are the betting public numbers for week 1 of the NFL in 2019.
Note: These is % of money bet on each team from compiled list of three sportsbooks.
