Another Great Week For Bettors, Not Sportsbooks
The Las Vegas sportsbooks are all grieving what was an otherwise amazing week of football, as the NFL Week 3 games proved to be great for fans and bettors, but horrible for them and their profits. Considering that a lot of the books make their money from the point spread, it comes to reason that close games favor them much more. However, the NFL has never been predictable, and least of all this season, with top teams losing, big blowouts, and even a shut-out game between two big teams. It all happened on Sunday, as the three late games of the day started and was not looking good, as Ed Salmons of the Westgate SuperBook stated. It all came down to how far apart the scores were, but at the end of the night all that was left was to pick up the pieces. The three games:
- Chicago Bears at Seattle Seahawks, Seahawks won 26-0, covering the 16-point spread.
- San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals, Cardinals won 47-7, easily covering the 6.5-point spread.
- Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins, Bills won 41-14, being a popular underdog to bet on, this was a huge hit.
