Breaking down Week 11 betting splits midway through the week

Betting splits can be useful information for making some of your wagering decisions. We’ve got an updated look at betting splits as of Wednesday for Week 11.

The NFL kicks off Week 11 in a little over 24 hours, and that means it’s time for another look at the betting splits for the week. DraftKings Sportsbook releases spread information every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday morning to give folks a handle on how the public is betting each NFL game. Whether you’re inclined to back or fade the betting public, this information offers some helpful insight into where you might want to go with your picks.

The biggest split in terms of money bet is the Kansas City Chiefs at -4 over the Los Angeles Chargers with 99 percent of the very early money on the Chiefs. Cowboys-Lions (96/4) and Jets-Washington (93/7) both have over 90 percent of the money in the direction of the road team.

The biggest split in terms of total bets taken is a tie between Cowboys-Lions and Chiefs-Chargers at 94/6. It’s safe to say with all of these over 90 percent games there will be some movement eventually in the other direction.

One interesting angle on viewing betting splits is when you have a reverse split. When the bets are in one direction but the money is in the other direction, it can suggest potentially some professional money — or some irrationally confident bettors! This week’s one bit of early reverse split is Texans-Ravens, with 71 percent of the handle on Houston and 77 percent of tickets bet on Baltimore.

Here’s the full rundown of betting splits for Week 11.
