The public can be used as a litmus test to help you figure out which NFL teams to bet on. When it comes to betting on the NFL, any handicapping tools you can get your hands on can help you make accurate predictions.

With the public’s betting information, you can see the what’s going on at the sportsbooks, which teams are being heavily bet on and if people are looking to put money on the underdog or the favorite.

What is the Consensus?

The consensus is the number of wagers being placed at a sportsbook on one team or its opponent (or the OVER, or the UNDER). Often referred to as betting percentages, these numbers give you an idea of what’s going on at the sportsbook. You can then use this information to shape your NFL picks.

On our NFL Consensus page you can determine if you want to bet with or against the public (more on that below). Consensus picks can also give you a peak into line movements.

For example, if the line opened at New Orleans -7 and then moved to -8, you’ll understand the reason for the movement because 74% of the public is betting on the Saints.

The consensus is a snapshot into what’s going on at the sportsbooks. You can see the percentage of wagers on each side of every football game based on the point spread, moneyline and OVER/UNDER.

Betting with or Against the Public

The consensus is a great tool to use when making your NFL picks because you can see other football bettors are wagering on. This is the percentage of the general public betting on each side of a matchup or total. You can bet with or against the public. When you bet against the public it is called “fading” the public.

Let’s imagine that the consensus says that the majority of bettors are wagering on New England to cover the spread in their game against the Buffalo. You think the Patriots don’t stand a chance because their defense could be riddled with injuries, or Bill Belichik could sew the sleeves back onto his sweatshirts. If you feel strongly that the Bills could cover the spread, you can fade the public and bet against the consensus.
