What’s On Tap: Sports Betting Slate 10/19/20

Well, a crazy weekend of sports has come and gone. There was plenty of action on the football field and even a bit of drama out on the diamond as the 2020 World Series matchup is now set.

Sports betting is 100% legal in Colorado, and it’s time for sports fans to get in on the action! With that, we want to ensure Colorado bettors are educated before laying their money on the line, so be sure to check out DenverSportsBetting.com for daily news, trends and analysis of sports from a betting perspective by Colorado’s only sports betting centric media outlet.

Let’s take a look at what’s on tap for today, Monday, October 19:

NFL:

There are two NFL games set to happen today, which will round out Week 6 of the season. First up, the Kansas City Chiefs will travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills. Both teams enter this contest with a 4-1 record, with both team’s respective losses coming in Week 5. This game was supposed to happen last Thursday but was bumped to Monday after issues with COVID-19 in the Bills matchup with the Tennessee Titans.

Kansas City opened as the -3 road favorite, but the number has since spiked to Kansas City -5.5, and over 60% of public money is heading towards the defending champs ATS. The point total opened at 55 and has since spiked a half-point to 55.5, with 55% of public action trending towards the over.

The Bills are +200 on the Moneyline, meaning a $25 bet would net a $75 payout if Buffalo is able to pull off the upset. Kick-off is set for 3:00 p.m. MST, so a little afternoon football on tap for this Monday.

Here are some quick trends and notes from Covers.com about tonight’s game:

  • Road team is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 meetings
  • Chiefs are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 meetings
  • Under is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings

Following Kansas City and Buffalo, the Dallas Cowboys will play the Arizona Cardinals in the typical Monday Night Football timeslot. Kick-off is set for 6:15 p.m. MST. This will be the Cowboys first game with Andy Dalton starting under center as opposed to Dak Prescott. Prescott is out for the year after snapping his ankle during last week’s win versus the New York Giants.

Despite the turnover, Dallas is a -1 favorite ATS after opening at -3. Public money is pretty much split ATS. The point total opened at 52 and has since spiked to 55 with 56% of public money heading towards the over.

Leighton Vander Esch could return to the field Monday after participating in practice throughout the week. He would be a huge boost to a Dallas’ defense that has been decimated with injuries through the early portion of the season. Dallas will need to be on their A-game tonight versus Arizona, as the Cardinals air raid offense is sure to come in hot led by Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins.

Here are some quick trends and notes from Covers.com about tonight’s game:

  • Underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings
  • Cardinals are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Dallas
  • Cardinals are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings
  • Home team is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 meetings
