Public Love For Seattle 

The Seattle Seahawks are listed as six-point road favorites against the Carolina Panthers. Carolina is riding a five-game losing streak (1-4 ATS) and Seattle is one of the NFL’s top road teams (6-1, 5-2 ATS). Plus, the Seahawks are even more attractive due to an incredible trend that’s working in their favor. As a result, 69% of public bets have been placed on Russell Wilson and company while the overwhelming majority of the money has also been wagered on the Seahawks. Find out exactly how much!

Sharp Money On The Bears

The Chicago Bears are listed as four-point road underdogs against the Green Bay Packers in Week 15. The Bears are in must-win mode despite their recent success and the Packers beat them in their first meeting (in Week 1) by the score of 10-7. Is Mitch Trubisky’s newfound success sustainable? Apparently sharp bettors think so, as just 48% of public bets have gone on the Bears ATS, but 76% of the money has.
