Weekend Sports Gambler: Most Bettors, Rowdiest Crowds This Weekend Will Be Watching The NFL — Bet On It



By Dan Behringer, LVSportsBiz.com Sports Betting Writer

You’ll be able to find plenty of sports to bet on this weekend at your favorite sportsbook — from college hoops to the NBA, NHL and UFC 283. Look hard enough, and at the American Express golf tournament there will be action.

But the crowd will be there for the Divisional Round of the NFL. The oohs and aahs and deafening crescendos that drown out normal conversation will be for professional football’s failed plays, close calls and official evaluations that are upheld or overturned. That you can certainly bet on.

If you need a quick refresher on the latest odds, here are the latest numbers from Covers.com.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are +8.5 against the Kansas City Chiefs. In total, up to 53 bets have been placed. Game time is 1:30pm. Saturday. Covers have 51 percent of the betting interest on the Chiefs.

The New York Giants are +7.5 to the Philadelphia Eagles. The total reached 53. Game time is 5:15 p.m. on Saturday. According to Covers, two-thirds of the betting profits benefit the Giants.

On Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals are +5.5 against the Buffalo Bills. The total has dropped from 50 to 48.5. The Bengals draw 65 percent of the bet. There is a slight chance of snow during the game which starts at noon.

The weekend will end with the Dallas Cowboys +4 against the San Francisco 49ers. The total number is 46. Covers says 62 percent of the betting interest is on the Niners.

“So we’re underdogs?” Mike McCarthy, who is 0-3 against San Francisco as head coach of the Cowboys and Packers, asked in an interview Friday. “Four? Wow. OK.”

Game time will be 3:30 p.m., and we’ll go out on a limb and say the book will be filled with empty Bud Light bottles and throwaway tickets by then, but the crowd will still be there.
