PHI Eagles -9 93% 85% Under 43.0 58% 40% -385 92% 92%

 

Yes, I think we should address the elephant in the room: the spread of the upcoming New York Jets-Kansas City Chiefs matchup. The Jets enter as 19.5-point underdogs after coming up short in each of their first seven games of the year. Kansas City, on the other hand, is 6-1 ahead of this home matchup at Arrowhead Stadium.

Bettors don’t exactly like the Jets’ chances of covering either. When it comes to that potential scenario, Gang Green is responsible for 18% of the handle and 37% of the bets, while the Chiefs are responsible for 82% of the handle and 63% of the bets.

Bet the Jets +19.5 with DraftKings Sportsbook here.

Another significant spread comes in the Sunday Night Football meeting between the Dallas Cowboys (+9) and Philadelphia Eagles (-9). Despite the Eagles’ struggles this season (2-4-1 through seven weeks), the Cowboys don’t employ a reliable starting quarterback. Due to injuries to Dak Prescott and Andy Dalton, Ben DiNucci will likely start for Dallas this Sunday night.

The Eagles have yet to win a game by over nine points this season, but the bettors are paying no mind to that. Philly is responsible for 93% of the handle and 85% of the NFL public bets in regard to the spread.

 

The game of the week takes place in the 1:00 p.m. ET window on Sunday afternoon between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens.

While the Steelers are the sole remaining undefeated team in the league, the Ravens are actually favored on DraftKings Sportsbook by four points and are -205 on the moneyline. Baltimore is indeed the home team (which could’ve forced the oddsmakers to favor them in this one), but a four-point spread seems too wide a margin.

Nonetheless, bettors still like Pittsburgh though — the Steelers are responsible for 71% of the handle and 72% of the bets.
