Sportsbooks Win Big in NFL Week 6 as Public Favorites Lose

Week 6 of the NFL delivered some shocks to bettors, resulting in a good weekend for the sportsbooks.

It seems that sportsbooks had a great NFL Week 6! William Hill were one of the most successful sportsbooks on Sunday, announcing that the Tennessee Titans (+1.5) brought in 80% of total money against the Denver Broncos before losing 16-0. The Cowboys (-7) and the Jaguars (-2.5) had similar percentages, attracting 74% and 72% of money respectively. The Jets covered against the Cowboys and the Saints defeated the Jaguars, resulting in a great week for William Hill and other sportsbooks.

There were also plenty of individual losses over the weekend as a result of Week 6 upsets. One bettor placed a $22,000 wager on the Chiefs (-5), with another wagering $20,900 on the Chargers (-6). The Chiefs lost 31-24 to the Houston Texans and the Steelers defeated the Chargers, which meant major losses for these two players.

One of the most notable match-ups on Sunday was between the Miami Dolphins and the Washington Redskins. Although the Redskins came out as narrow winners (17-16), it meant that the Dolphins had managed to cover the spread for the first time this season. They were the final team to do so.

In non-betting related news, Lamar Jackson became the third quarterback in the Super Bowl era to rush for at least 150 yards in a single game, Sam Darnold became the youngest player to throw a 90-yard touchdown pass and Jimmy Garoppolo became the eighth quarterback with at least 13 wins in his first 15 career starts.

Upsets for bettors this weekend put us at 2-4. However, it was just one bad weekend. We’re still 25-15 for the season! Week 6 Monday Night Football features the Detroit Lions at the Green Bay Packers, with our free preview, predictions and picks being posted soon.
