NFL Public Betting Explained
When someone mentions NFL public betting they are referencing who the general public or the who the “average joe” is betting on for any given game. A lot of bettors will call this an NFL consensus pick but at the end of the day it is the same thing as a public pick. Some bettors are more interested in the NFL public percentages rather than a public pick because they want to see if the bulk of the public bettors are all on one team, or maybe it is a small majority of the public. Bettors love to check NFL public betting percentages because historically one of the most popular betting strategies is betting against the public consensus. Data over the years has shown that betting against the public for NFL games has been somewhat profitable. The strategy behind betting against the public or as it’s commonly called “fading the public” is that most bettors do not totally know what they are doing and will pick a winner based on a gut feeling rather than data. Most casual NFL bettors are more familiar with picking a moneyline winner and aren’t comfortable reading NFL lines let alone picking a game against the spread. Since football is by far the most popular sport and the most popular sport for casual fans to bet on this strategy holds a bit more water. If you don’t totally buy the fading the public theory you can also check out our NFL expert picks page where you can find sharp betting data for any NFL game. Commonly the more public tickets that have been bet the more “square” the bet is, which means it would be advantageous to fade the pick.
