The most accurate gauge of public opinion in any sporting event is the sports betting market. By tracking the “number of bets” and “percentage of bets” placed on every match, SportsInsights.com shows readers which teams the public is favoring.

All wagering statistics come directly from the lineboards of six independent online sportsbooks, and represent actual bets placed. We invite the sports media to take advantage of these unique statistics for use in stories, or a sidebar graphic.

NFL WEEK 11 Recap

NFL Week 11 started off great for the sportsbooks but early gains were quickly given back due to poor results in the 4pm and late games. Our six contributing online sportsbooks all reported a breakeven Sunday, most holding 1-3% of their handle. Steve Stone, line manager at Oasis, had this to say, “Sunday started off great, but man – those 4pm games killed us again.” Tack on KC blowing out the hapless Texans in the late game and the door was shut on the sportsbooks scratching out a profitable Sunday.

NFL WEEK 12 Preview

NFL Week 12 kicks off with two primetime NFL games on Thanksgiving. Two nationally televised games will dramatically increase handle sizes, historically resulting in a 10%-20% spike. The public already has strong opinions on this year’s Thanksgiving Day games. This is either going to a BIG day, or a nightmare for the sportsbooks. Early public money is chasing both favorites on the road, the Atlanta Falcons and the Denver Broncos.

We anticipate Atlanta, Denver, Carolina, and San Diego to be the most “lopsided-bet” games of the week. Visit SportsInsights.com for real-time wagering statistics and information.
