- It’s MVP vs. MVP. Offensive power plant versus offensive power plant. A match between the teams with the two best Super Bowl odds.
- It’s no wonder why players hit football this Monday night, but they have also taken a side on the money line.
- Darren Rovell describes how the public is betting on Chiefs vs. Ravens.
Bettors eat over Monday night football as they get the ultimate battle for offensive juggernauts – or at least what were No. 1 and No. 2 offenses in 2019 – as the Baltimore Ravens host the Kansas City Chiefs. So it seems obvious what the public is betting on.
Yes, the end.
FanDuel says 89% of the money has come in at 54.5 points, a number that opened at 52. And aside from the total, BetMGM took a massive bet of over Monday morning: $ 95,454 to a net $ 86,776.
The majority of the money is also on the money line. With a chance to get the Super Bowl champions – a 3.5-point dog in Baltimore (find real-time odds here) – to +150 to win completely, DraftKings says 78% of their money line bets are on Patrick Mahomes and Chiefs. After all, they have won 20 of their last 25 games (counting the playoffs).
For the most part, sports books and players each took a bit apart on Sunday. The Bengals-Eagles draw, the Bears’ direct win over the Falcons and Lions, who beat the Cardinals, were all good results for books. The Bettors meanwhile won with favorites covering – namely the Patriots, 49ers, Steelers, Buccaneers and Seahawks.
PointsBets Patrick Eichner said that with the way the week has been, who wins and who loses between the books, and the public can get down to live betting, which is growing in popularity. The chiefs have a reputation for returning from large deficits, so if it manifests itself tonight, it could provide an opportunity for both sides.
Of FanDuel’s total handling as of Monday afternoon, $ 2 million of the more than $ 3 million has entered DFS contests with FanDuel’s promise to refund entry fees if both teams combine to 75 points.
