How the public is betting Super Bowl 55 heading into Week 8

The top three most bet teams at DraftKings Sportsbook for Super Bowl 55 are not surprising, but we have some surprises further down the list.

The NFL season is in full swing and we’ve had a mix of obvious an unexpected through the first seven weeks. We still have over half the season to go, but the playoff picture is slowly clearing up. We know some of the top Super Bowl contenders, but there are plenty of teams that still have a decent chance at making the postseason tournament. Once January gets here, all bets are off.

Heading into Week 8 you can guess who the public likes at the top of the list at DraftKings online sportsbook. The Kansas City Chiefs are the betting favorite with 31% of the bets coming their way. They’re followed up by the Ravens and Buccaneers as the only other teams to take up more than 10% of individual bets.

An interesting surprise comes in with the Saints and Patriots getting 6% and 2% of the bets. They’re both over 4% of the total money bet and seem to be getting some past respect points.

The biggest shocker in the top ten are the one and only Dallas Cowboys. Clearly a public favorite and garnishing some support in Vegas despite being a visual representation of a dumpster fire on the field. America’s team has 3% of the bets coming their way despite impressing no one.

The value picks stills appear to be teams in the NFC West. The Rams and 49ers are still flying under the radar and can provide some value for those looking.
