- Sunday's Chiefs vs. Jaguars (1 p.m. ET, CBS) matchup is setting up to be the biggest sharps-vs.-squares matchup of NFL Week 1.
- We examine how sharp money has moved this line since opening, as well as the specific number that pros are betting.
Sharps bet numbers. Casual bettors bet on the best/most popular teams — usually favorites — no matter the line.
It’s much more fun to root for good teams to play well than to hope the league’s worst can keep games close enough to cover the spread, even if the underdogs in these matchups represent the valuable side.
This is often magnified in Week 1 as NFL bettors have an entire offseason to bet on these games, and often place wagers based on last season’s results.
With this in mind, it’s not surprising to see Sunday’s Chiefs vs. Jaguars matchup setting up as the opening week’s biggest disagreement between sharp and square bettors.
Here’s how the Chiefs vs. Jaguars line has moved since opening, and at exactly what number the pros are betting.
