Week 9 was Lucrative for Book Makers

Underdogs went 9-3 against the spread Sunday, with seven outright upsets. The outright upsets produce the biggest win for sportsbooks, because many parlays are eliminated.

Biggest upsets:

Broncos over Cowboys
Jaguars over Bills
Browns over Bengals
Falcons over Saints
Giants over Raiders
Chargers over Eagles
Cardinals over 49ers
Titans over Rams

The Vikings almost pulled out an upset on the Ravens

Home teams went 5-7

Josh Allen of the Jags sacked and intercepted Josh Allen of the Bills and also recovered a fumble.
A lot of money was wagered on the point spread on the Bengals.

From 1996 through 2017, NFL underdogs of 15 points or more didn’t pull a single outright upset, going 0-72 during that 22-season stretch, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. However, we’ve had one such upset in each of the past four seasons.
