Safety Prop Bet Cashes
The first score of the game was a safety, which paid out at 12 to 1 as shown in the NFL Prop Bets Directory, though players mostly avoided this market, which was celebrated by online sportsbooks. While the best online sportsbooks can withstand the luckiest of player long shots, betting sites rated lower will take all the wins they can to avoid slow-paying big winners.
Players Misfire in Free Predict The Score Contest
One place players weren't so fortunate however in the free $50 Amazon contest at Sportsbook Review. Because the theme of the contest is "Predict The Score", more than 100 contestants could not nail the exact final score total for both teams.
The contest will run the next Thursday Night Football game. Players also still have time to join week 3 of the Free $30,000 NFL and College Football Betting Contest.
Sportsbook Review recently provided a week 3 NFL betting digest which shows the various resources at the SBR network headed into this weekend.
