Congratulations to you, the betting public, for one of the best NFL Sundays vs. the books — ever.

ESPN’s David Purdum reports:

Nevada industry sources estimated the state’s sportsbooks lost in the range of $7 million to $10 million overall on Sunday.

Easy covers by the Vikings, Steelers and Chiefs sealed the books’ fate.

More on the good news here from Purdum — including that it was the third strong weekend in a row for bettors.

Now for Dave Tuley’s View From Vegas ATS report on NFL Week 9:

Patriots beat Packers 31-17 on Sunday night: View From Vegas is the Pats also covered as 5-point home favorites (game stayed under betting total of 56.5); faves/dogs are 6-6 for the week heading into Monday night; Unders lead 7-5.

Season-long stats since we’ve passed halfway point:

  • Underdogs lead 69-60-2 ATS (53.5%) with 2 games closing pick ‘em
  • Home teams are 65-63-2 ATS with 3 London games not counted
  • Home dogs 25-19 ATS (56.8%)
  • Unders lead 68-64-1

SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected Teams, after going 5-0 last week, are 4-0 this week (MIN -4.5, PIT +3, KC -8, HOU +1) with TEN +6.5 pending on MNF and improve to 25-19 (56.8%)

Big Bets

From Purdum: A customer at MGM went 2-1 with $100,000 bets on the Chiefs -8.5, Redskins -1.5 (loss) and Patriots -6.

(No reports on Duffel Bag Bettor after his 1-3 Saturday on college football.)

MNF: Titans (+4.5) at Cowboys (8:20 p.m. ET, ESPN)
A 4.5-spread doesn’t seem like much to cover, but the Titans’ offense is almost as bad as it can get, writes Jeff Fogle.
