The NFL season has come and gone, and DraftKings Sportsbook was kind enough to reach out to us at BonusSeeker and provide us with a list of which NFL games their users bet on the most in the 2018 season. DK Sportsbook also delivered us which teams were bet on most during the NFL Wild Card games. It is interesting to see where the sports betting community made their investments. Since DraftKings is the largest NJ sports betting operator, we feel like this data is a solid representation of sports bettors from the state.
DraftKings Sportsbook's Biggest Bet Games From The 2018 NFL Season
The NFL Wild Card Game, Eagles at Bears, which occurred on Jan. 6, 2019, was the most bet on NFL game since the launch of the DraftKings Sportsbook app. Now let’s take a look at the biggest bet on games during the 2018 NFL regular season.
Biggest Bet Games of 2018 NFL Regular Season
- Patriots @ Lions
- Rams @ Chiefs
- Saints @ Cowboys
- Giants @ Falcons
- Falcons @ Saints
DraftKings Sportsbook’s top two games from this list makes a lot of sense. The Patriots took on the Lions after Detroit dropped their first two games of the season. For sports bettors, this created the perfect opportunity. Matt Patricia grew as a coach with the Patriots and Bill Belichick before heading to the Lions. After the 0-2 start, the price would be right for bettors to see if they can strike gold on Lions head coach Matt Patricia. This is a coach who should know the Patriots well enough that he could at least game plan accordingly and possibly pull off the upset. The season was also just getting underway and sports bettors were eager to get in on one of the first hot matchups of the football season. The DraftKings Sportsbook app had the line at -7 in favor of the Patriots. The Lions won the game 26-10, proving those who took the Lions to be right.
The Rams at Chiefs game was one of the most highly anticipated games of the season heading into Week 11. Both teams carried one defeat heading into the game and looked like the best two squads in the NFL. The Ram won an absolute shootout, 54-51.
