Sunday Night Football

Eagles 25, 49ers 20: A 42-yard pass from Carson Wentz to Travis Fulgham with five minutes remaining swung all the momentum in the favor of the road Eagles (+275 ML), turning a three-point lead for the 49ers (-7.5 points, -345 ML) into a four-point lead for Philadelphia.

On the very first San Francisco play following the score, Nick Mullens was intercepted by Alex Singleton, who ran in for the score, making it 25-14 Eagles with just under five minutes left. The public was backing Eagles +7.5 with 49% of the handle. A Jerick McKinnon garbage time TD followed for the 49ers, helping to serve a winning ticket for Over 44.5, backed by 77% of the O/U handle

Colts 19, Bears 11:The Bears suffered their first loss of the season in an ugly, low-scoring affair that provided winning tickets to just 21% of total game bets. But it wasn’t a complete wash, as bettors who bought in on surging Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (+300 to Score TD, +650 score TD & Colts win, and +1100 score 1st TD) were winners thanks to a first first-quarter TD. The former VCU basketball star had more prop bets backing him than any other Colts or Bears player and now has touchdowns in back-to-back games.

Rams 17, Giants 9: The public was all over the 2-1 Rams against the 0-3 Giants, backing the home team with 89% of the total game handle. The Rams were unable to cover the second-largest spread of the season (-13), but the game result was a positive for Rams ML (-835) backers, which was the fourth most popular bet of the NFL weekend and the third strongest public ML side of Sunday with 92% of ML handle.

Bills 30, Raiders 23: The Bills (-3.5 points, -167ML) were the popular public side with 70% of total game handle and, for the fourth straight week, were a winning play for ML bettors (69% of ML handle) and O/U bettors (72% of O/U handle).

The Bills are now 4-0 overall, 3-1 ATS and 3-1 O/U, and Josh Allen (+5000 to win NFL MVP) is gaining some steam thanks to 1,326 passing yards, 10 passing TDs, 2 rushing TDs and just 2 interceptions through four games.

1PM ET Games

Buccaneers 38, Chargers 31: The most popular 1PM game by total handle and total bets was also the most entertaining. For the fourth straight week, the Chargers were involved in a game decided by one touchdown or less, something bettors (81% of spread handle on Buccaneers -7.5) were not expecting with L.A. making the cross-country trip. But rookie QB Justin Herbert was sensational, finishing with a nearly-perfect passer rating of 137.9, leading the Chargers to a ten-point halftime lead.

But Tom Brady tossed four of his five TD passes in the second half, and the Buccaneers rallied to earn a huge win for Over 44 (84% of O/U handle) and -315 ML (90% of ML handle) bettors.

Browns 41, Cowboys 20: For the first time in over fifty years, the Browns (+165 ML) scored over 30 points in three consecutive games, scoring six offensive touchdowns in a high-scoring affair. Bettors were wise to back Over 56 (78% of O/U handle), which hit early in the fourth quarter. Baker Mayfield (-108 o1.5 passing TDs) threw two TD passes, Odell Beckham Jr. caught two TD passes — one from Jarvis Landry — and scored on a 50-yard backbreaking fourth-quarter reverse jet sweep to hold off a late Dallas charge.

The Cowboys’ defense allowed 31 first-half points, quickly marking the third straight week Dallas allowed 30+ points. Dak Prescott o2.5 total TDs (+155) was a popular play as well, and he rewarded bettors with four passing TDs.

Ravens 31, Redskins 17: The Ravens (-13.5pts, -1000 ML) entered Sunday as the strongest favorite of the NFL season thanks to a date with Washington Football Team (+750 ML). The Ravens led from start to finish, providing little sweat for the two BetRivers.com bettors who wagered over $4,000 each on Ravens -770 ML and Ravens -710 ML, respectively. There was considerably more sweat for O/U and spread bettors. Despite averaging 30.5 ppg and being involved in games with19.25 average margin of victory, the Ravens are now 1-3 O/U and 2-2 ATS.

Saints 35, Lions 29: Even with their stunning Week 3 win over the Cardinals, the Lions entered Week 4 with the most total money going against Detroit through three weeks. Bettors were on Saints -159 (85% of ML handle) and Saints -4 (81% of spread handle), which provided some early sweat thanks to a quick 14-0 lead for the Lions. But New Orleans responded with 28-straight points and held off a late charge to win and cover on the road.

Seahawks 31, Dolphins 23: The Seahawks opened -7 to beat the Dolphins in Miami. The line dropped to -5.5, which is when two BetRivers.com bettors placed bets of over $5,000 on the Seahawks to cover. Only Chargers vs. Buccaneers had a larger percentage of total handle than Seahawks vs. Dolphins. Miami made it interesting late, with Ryan Fitzpatrick scoring on a 10-yard run to make it a seven-point game with two minutes remaining. Seattle recovered the onside kick, securing a win for Seahawks ML (90% of ML handle)Seahawks -5.5 (91% of spread handle).

Panthers 31, Cardinals 21: The public gave the Panthers (+155 ML) very little chance against the Cardinals (-180) despite hosting a team traveling from the west coast, with just 17% of all bets backing Carolina. The Panthers’ defense held Kyler Murray (+1600 to win NFL MVP) in check, relatively speaking. Although Murray tossed three TD passes, he finished with just 133 passing yards (+125 u200 passing yards) and failed to score on the ground for the first time this season.

Bengals 33, Jaguars 25: Joe Mixon finished with 151 yards of rushing and three total TDs to lead Cincinnati (-1.5pts, -121 ML) to their first win of the season. More importantly, however, is 58 total points scored, which earned a win for o49 points (69% of O/U bets), the most popular bet of the game. Also important to note is that the Bengals are now 4-0 ATS.

Vikings 31, Texans 23: The public was split early, but leaned toward Houston before kickoff, being backed by 72% of ML handle and 64% of spread handle. Houston failed to find the end zone until the third quarter, and despite a late charge, Minnesota was able to earn their first win of the season. Bettors did find a win on o53 points, which was backed by just 28% of O/U bets prior to Sunday morning, but was backed by 62% of O/U bets by kickoff.
