Betting public heavily behind Cowboys a day before Thursday Night Football

We’ve got a look at where the betting public is looking midway through Week 14.

The NFL kicks off Week 14 in a little over 24 hours, and we’ve got a midweek look at where the betting splits are situated. Plenty will change between now and Sunday, but this gives us an idea where folks are looking in the early going.

The biggest split comes with Sunday Night Football, when the Los Angeles Rams host the Seattle Seahawks. The line opened up near a field goal favoring Seattle, but is down to one point as of Wednesday morning. 93 percent of the handle and 91 percent of bets placed are on the Seahawks covering.

We have two games with a split between handle and bets. The Vikings are a 12.5-point favorite over the Lions, and while 73 percent of bets placed are on Detroit, 54 percent of the handle is on Minnesota. Elsewhere, the Bucs are a field goal favorite over the Colts, and while 60 percent of the bets placed are on Tampa, 56 percent of the handle is on Indianapolis.

Thursday Night Football is a day away, so we’ve got a more firm handle on where the betting public will land. 91 percent of the handle and 86 percent of bets placed are on the Cowboys to cover as field goal road favorites against the Bears.

Here’s a full rundown of Week 14 betting splits as of Wednesday morning.
