D.J. Reed returned a fumble of a botched lateral for a TD with no time remaining to give the 49ers a 36-26 win over Arizona, a 9½-point underdog at multiple sportsbooks.
Perhaps the most impressive numbers shared by Joe Burrow and Lamar Jackson are 200-1, which were the odds posted for them to win the Heisman Trophy and NFL MVP, respectively.
Underdogs went 7-3-1 ATS Sunday with six outright wins, including the Dolphins (+11) over the Colts, Steelers (+4½) over the Rams and Jets (+3) over the Giants.
The biggest win, by far, for MGM Resorts and other Las Vegas sportsbooks was on the Chargers, who upset the Packers 26-11 as 4½-point home underdogs.
An MGM Resorts bettor won a six-figure wager on Green Bay, which turned an otherwise profitable day into a small loser for MGM and a “pretty good” loser for William Hill.
William Hill won more than $1 million on Washington, which was reportedly only the second team in 25 years to cover the spread without scoring in a 9-0 loss to the 49ers.
The Dolphins (0-5) covered in a 17-16 loss to the Redskins and the Jets (1-4) earned their first win in a 24-22 upset victory over the Cowboys.
Sharp money on Chicago drove the line from 5½ to 6½ and MGM Resorts took a six-figure bet on the Bears. The Raiders gave William Hill its only win of the 10 a.m. games.
NFL underdogs went 9-3-1 against the spread with seven outright upsets Sunday as Las Vegas sportsbooks had their best day of the season, by far.
The Rams’ 20-13 win was the biggest NFL decision of the season for MGM Resorts and CG Technology, which each needed Cleveland for multiple six figures.
