Underdogs and favorites were a 8-8 split last week based on the closing numbers at BetUS. If you enjoy betting on home teams, this has probably not been a very good start to the 2009 NFL betting season for you. A whopping ten (of 16) road teams covered the spread in week 1 and another ten (of 16) in week 2. This does not bode well for the betting public. However, the Bankroll Sports experts spotted the home team favoritism in the lines as our handicappers are a perfect 5-0 in NFL 10* releases this year and also went 7-1 in week 2. If you think the oddsmakers are unaware all the road teams covering the spread, think again. Based on the opening numbers for the week 3 lines, five of the twelve games that are on the board for next Sunday are road favorites of 4 points or more. The oddsmakers have been on top of the NFL totals in the first two weeks as over/unders are currently 15-16 thus far in 2009.

Looking at the week three NFL lines for the final Sunday in September, injuries are starting to play a role, with five games either “circled” or “off the board” on Tuesday morning after week 2. The biggest favorite on the week schedule is in the (2-0) Baltimore Ravens at home vs. the (0-2) Cleveland Browns. The highest total for week three is in the Saints @ Bills matchup, which is appropriately set at 52½. This 52½ total doesn’t seem like such a big number after looking at these two teams’ point totals in weeks one and two. The Saints scored a combined 93 points in the first two weeks and the Bills offense is starting to really come together, scoring a combined 57 points. Based on these averages, the oddsmakers could have unrealistically set this total at 75 points. As for some of the other hot (2-0) teams in the league, the New York Jets open as 2½ point favorites at home vs. the (0-2) Titans; the New York Giants open as a touchdown favorite on the road vs. the struggling (0-2) Buccaneers; the Green Bay Packers are listed as 6½ point road favorites at the (0-2) Rams. In a matchup of two teams that are 2-0, the San Francisco 49ers are set as seven point road dogs against Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings. (1-1) New England, who has looked like a different team then the Patriots of old have another tough task when Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons come to Foxburo as 4 point dogs. For the week 3 Monday Night Football line, we have the Carolina Panthers coming to “Jerry World” as 9 point underdogs which was expected to be a much better matchup when scheduled at the beginning of the season. Yes football bettors, the 2009 NFL Football betting season is officially in full swing as handicappers and animalists start to get quality looks at these NFL teams for 2009. NFL Football
