NFL Week 17 Consensus: Heavy Betting in Last Week

Unfortunately we have come to another end of a great NFL season. As we enter week 17 of the season there could be an increase in football wagering as people get one last full day of betting football in before the season comes to a close.

With that in mind, now is the time to take the most time to handicap the games correctly in hopes of finding a good wager that will fuel a winning day to end the season on a good note. Using the latest NFL Consensus reports to find winners can be very effective. With a higher volume of wagering expected, the consensus numbers may have more relevance, more now than ever.

The first numbers that leap off the page for this week is 70 percent.

It is not odd for a favorite to get the majority of the public betting, but in week 17 there is something odd about it. Two of the teams that are getting over 70 percent of the public betting are bad teams and have a record below .500.

The Buffalo Bills host the New York Jets as three point favorites and the public has jumped all over them this week despite their record. The Jets public demolition is well documented and has not been lost on the football betting fan base that are fading the Jets.

Another team with a losing record getting plenty of attention is the New Orleans Saints. The Saints host the Carolina Panthers this week and since they are at home, the Saints are attracting over 70 percent of the betting action.

The end of the season often means an increase in betting and the consensus numbers will be a good gauge of where that money is going. Follow the money in week 17 and there are winners to be found.
