|The New York Giants massacred the Washington Redskins last week 36-0, and fans apparently liked what they saw. At Sportsbook.com, 96 per cent of all money bet on the Giants versus 49ers game has gone to New York, despite a large 11 point spread on the road. |
Ben Roethlisberger's injury has seen the Steelers go from a 6-point favourite to a 3.5-point bet at Green Bay. It seems Steelers fans are not convinced the team can go far with Charlie Batch at the helm, as witnessed by 52 per cent of all bets coming in on the woeful Packers to cover.
In other games, betting sentiment has been so high on the Colts that Sportsbook.com has increased their spread against the Patriots to 4 points. Fans are betting that Manning and company finally break the jinx against their nemesis, a team they have lost to six straight times. Eighty-two per cent of fans are backing Indianapolis.
Despite their drubbing to New York last week, 54 per cent of fans have bet that the Redskins will cover as 3 point favourites against the struggling Eagles, while, surprisingly, 77 per cent of bets have come in favour of the Ravens, who are 3 point underdogs against Cincinnati.
