NFL Bookies Picks

Welcome to Predictem's NFL bookies picks page, where you'll find a listing of which teams the books need to win and cover each week. There is a misconception that the sportsbooks get balanced action on each game each week. While it's possible that many bookies "lay off" action to other books in an effort to not have too much exposure to a single game, essentially reducing their risk, the truth is, very few NFL games actually receive even action on both sides.

Over the years, we've heard many sports bettors make comments that resemble "If I only knew what the bookies were on I could win!" While this may help some football gamblers, it's not exactly the solution to losing. However, we can say that if you're a "square" bettor, who often times finds himself paying his bookie more often than he's receiving cash, this bookies picks page may be of great value to you.

Each week, we'll post every NFL matchup and let you know which side (team) the football bookies are rooting for to win, based on the wagering action they've received over the week. *Please make note that these are not OUR predictions. These are simply a listing of what the house needs to cover and beat the public. Enjoy!
