MIAMI – Public betting information has been released on which teams the public is backing and where the signs of sharp money is. Week 8 has a few interesting spots worth noting.
Buffalo Bills Vs. Miami Dolphins
The Buffalo Bills are getting a ton of action from the betting public on the spread against the Miami Dolphins. Legal sports betting sites are seeing 95% of the money and 89% of the bets on Buffalo.
Bills vs Dolphins Spread Odds
- Buffalo Bills -14.0 -110
- Miami Dolphins +14.0 -110
The Bills beat the Dolphins earlier this season very convincingly with a final score of 35-0 and although Tua Tagovailoa is back, it may not make much of a difference. However, if there was ever a time to fade the public, this is likely it.
Tennessee Titans Vs. Indianapolis Colts
Those betting on the NFL are seeing reverse line movement in the direction of the Indianapolis Colts over the Tennessee Titans.
The betting line is moving in the direction of the Colts despite the Titans being the public’s favorite bet of the game.
Titans vs Colts Spread Odds
- Tennessee Titans +2.5-110
- Indianapolis Colts -2.5 -110
The Titans were favored by 2.0 points just a few days ago and despite receiving 83% of the bets and 74% of the money on the spread, have now become 2.5-point underdogs.
Reverse line movement is always a suspicious thing to attempt to decipher, but it’s worth noting at the bare minimum.
Dallas Cowboys Vs. Minnesota Vikings
As the NFL’s only undefeated ATS team, it’s not surprising to find the Dallas Cowboys as one of the public’s favorite picks. However, it is shocking to find the line moving in the Minnesota Vikings’ direction.
Cowboys vs Vikings Spread Odds
- Dallas Cowboys +3.0 -115
- Minnesota Vikings -3.0 -105
Dallas was favored by 2.5-points as recently as Wednesday and despite seeing 91% of the bets and 89% of the money on the spread, online sportsbooks have lost their edge in the betting line.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) was sore today after ramping up intensity in Thursday’s practice, coach Mike McCarthy said. On decision ahead about Sunday status: “It’s more than just one game. We’re obviously in our seventh game, so there is a ton of football left to play.”

This line movement may be in response to the increasing notion that Dak Prescott may miss the game on Sunday night. His game status should be the top priority for those who are interested in betting on this game.
