On the vegasexperts.com website, Grassi cited six games, but specifically noted the Oakland Raiders at Indianapolis Colts game and the New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills matchup. Both contests saw heavy betting action on the favorite due to quarterback concerns with the other team. That included 70 percent on New England, which according to Grassi, "is one of the teams that always draws a lot of betting attention." Both betting lines increased significantly over the course of last week due to heavy action, yet it was the underdog that ended up covering the pointspread.
Grassi also said that the heaviest betting action (over 85 percent) of all the games came on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who were favored by 3.5 points, but lost 18-17 to the New York Jets on a last-second field goal.
Week 2 of the NFL season gets underway on Thursday evening when the Patriots host the New York Jets in Foxborough, MA beginning at 8:30 ET. The game will be broadcast on the NFL Network.
