It was one of the best NFL weekends of the year for players as favorites went 9-13 against the spread, or 10-13 depending on where the Chicago Bears line closed at your online sportsbook of choice.
All high profile public teams covered with relative ease in a day that was sure to fill some stockings prior to Christmas.
In fact, even a few of the underdogs which covered the spread had a majority of betting action based on the spread consensus data available from SBR Odds. For instance, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had 55% of bets against the Chargers and not only covered but also won outright.
The Chicago Bears closed from PK to +1 at most sportsbooks but had 58% of bets against the 49ers.
On the favorites front, the Packers, Patriots, Broncos, Steelers, Seahawks, Raiders, and Ravens all covered the spread in games that were either blowouts or without significant controversy or backdoor covers.
