Week 1 of the NFL season has come and gone. Bettors now have some idea of how each team looks on the field and there is heavy public consensus on a ton of Week 2 games. The public is showing serious love to the Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, and a few other Week 1 winners.

It’s no surprise to see 99% and 94% of the handle and bet tickets, respectively, on the Chiefs -8.5. Kansas City was 14-5 against the spread last season and opened up 2020 with a double-digit win over the Houston Texans last Thursday.

Some week 2 public picks that are jumping out at us:

  1. The total points on Chiefs-Chargers sticks out. Only 23% of the total handle is on the over despite accounting for 77% of the bet tickets placed. That would indicate that the sharp money is on the under.
  2. The Bills put the New York Jets on blast in Week 1, easily covering the 6.5-point spread. They’ll face another AFC East rival in the Miami Dolphins in Week 2. A remarkable 98% of the public money is on the Bills to cover that spread.
  3. Speaking of the Jets, they are heavy underdogs for a second consecutive week. The San Francisco 49ers are laying 6.5 points. Still, 97% of the money and 96% of the tickets are on the Niners.

But these are only a few of the games where there is heavy consensus among the betting public. One of the only games where there is almost an even split is the matchup between the Chicago Bears and New York Giants. The 52-48 split on spread handle is the closest of any Week 2 game.
