NFL Recap: Underdogs dominate Week 1

Anytime underdogs go 10-3 ATS, you can safely assume the betting public took a beating and the sportsbooks did pretty well.

That was certainly the case Sunday as Week 1 of the NFL betting season kicked into full gear, with some reports out of Las Vegas stating it was their biggest regular-season day of profits ever.


Monday Night Football: Week 1 Preview

Week 1 of the NFL season concludes on Monday night with a pair of betting matchups on the slate as the Detroit Lions get a visit from the New York Giants and the San Diego Chargers play on the road against the Arizona Cardinals.

Eli Manning and the Giants are looking to bounce back from a 7-9 campaign in 2013 in which they missed the playoffs, and they head into the primetime matchup with eight ATS victories in their past dozen appearances on Monday Night Football.


MNF: Giants face the Lions Monday night

The New York Giants have paid off on the NFL betting lines at the sportsbooks in eight of their last 12 appearances on Monday Night Football as they open their season in Detroit against the Lions on Monday.

New York, however, is on an 0-5 ATS run in season-opening games on the road, while the Lions have posted an 8-3 ATS record in their last 11 season-opening games. For totals bettors, the UNDER has gone 6-0-1 in the last seven Lions games on Monday Night Football dating back to the 1996 season.

Supporters of the New York Giants have seen them go 7-9 and 7-9 ATS so far this season, while the Detroit Lions are at 7-9 and 6-10 ATS. In totals betting, the Lions are 8-8, while the Giants are 7-9.

Arizona is 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight MNF outings, while San Diego has posted a 4-1 ATS mark in their last five games on Monday night. The Chargers are also a lucrative 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games as underdogs on the road for bettors on the NFL odds.
