Week 15 NFL action has sharp money on Tampa Bay, while the public likes San Francisco. This week on many online sites that feature sports wagering, there is a strange calmness with the only college football game being Army vs. Navy and college basketball not having gone into overdrive as of yet.
Nevertheless, on Sunday a complete schedule of NFL action will keep sites like Bovada, sportsbook.com, betonline and topbet busy from sunrise to sunset and beyond.
The big plays for NFL on Bovada will come on Sunday just before kickoff and during the game with their live wagering, that is available.
Thus far, the public seems to like the San Francisco 49ers, Carolina Panthers, Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks. Each sports book, including topbet and betonline will have to win these four games if they expect to come out on top for the week.
