Week 1 NFL Public Betting Consensus Report [2017]

The NFL season kicks-off on Thursday night withe the reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots hosting the Kansas City Chiefs. We all know that the Patriots are a favorite among public bettors, but so are a few other teams and I think you probably know who they are. The Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, and Pittsburgh Steelers rank up there with the Patriots when it comes to people laying down money. We are going to track which games the public loves this season, so you can either jump on them or fade them. If I’m a little undecided on a game, I’ll usually go against the public as one of my deciding factors. We all know that online sportsbooks and Las Vegas make money, so betting against the public can sometimes pay off. Be sure to check out who our staff of Bobby, Jay, and Reggie like this week in the NFL on our Staff Selections Home Page.
