Nobody Betting Texans, Seahawks Odds in Week 1
It is the most one-sided betting seen in years, with Indianapolis and San Francisco getting almost all the action at some online sportsbooks. Check out the 93% of bettors backing the 49ers as 3-point road favorites at Seattle. Hey Seattle fans! Is anyone betting on the home team or do you all have your money on the 49ers too? It's almost as bad for the Texans, who are fashionable choice to pull the upset at home against the Colts. But not at Sportsbook.ag where 92% of the action is on the Peyton Manning - can he cover the modest 2-point spread? They almost always beat Houston but seldom cover the point spread. It underscores the profit potential for bettors on early-season games. It also underscores the risks for sportsbooks, who don't like having so much action on one side - it's just bad business.
