America Bets on Favorites

28 October 2005

NEW YORK -– (PRESS RELEASE) -- Week eight of the NFL schedule is littered with large spreads, but that has not deterred bettors at from laying their money on the favorites heading into this weekend's action.

In six games with spreads at eight points or more bettors have so far backed only one of the underdogs - San Francisco who faces the week's largest spread at 11 points against Tampa Bay. Cincinnati, Carolina, New England, Dallas and Pittsburgh are all 8 to 10 point favorites in their games and are all being heavily backed.

Action is tighter in the two marquee match-ups this week with 58 per cent of bettors backing the underdog Chiefs at San Diego to cover the 6.5 point spread while 55 per cent feel the favored Broncos will cover their 3.5 point spread at home to the Eagles.
