Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

It’s a busy weekend in the world of sports with the arrival of the NFL. Sunday also sees a full 15-game slate of Major League Baseball action plus the U.S. Open final between Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev. Let’s take a look at where the public money has gone so far on Sunday.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs -5 over Cleveland Browns

Bettors’ favorite NFL play of the 4:00 PM schedule is on the Chiefs to cover the spread against the Browns. Kansas City, which is giving 5 points, is being backed by 82 percent of the money and 77 percent of the wagers. The defending AFC champions are -250 to win outright, but the public is unafraid of that juice. K.C.’s money line is getting 71 percent of the handle and 87 percent of the wagers.

NFL: Green Bay Packers ML over New Orleans Saints

Punters are also loving Green Bay on the late-afternoon schedule. The Packers on the -180 money line are drawing 76 percent of the handle and 88 percent of the bets.

NFL: Los Angeles Rams -8 over Chicago Bears

The public is wrapping up its day at the betting window with the Rams against the spread. Led by new quarterback Matthew Stafford, L.A. is being backed by 78 percent of the money and 72 percent of the wagers to cover an 8-point spread against visiting Chicago.

MLB: New York Yankees vs New York Mets Over 8

The ESPN Game of the Week wraps up a Subway Series between the Yankees and Mets. Bettors like the Yankees on the -115 money line (89 percent of the handle and 66 percent of the wagers), but their favorite play is on Over 8. With 91 percent of the wagers hoping for a high-scoring affair, a whopping 99 percent of the money is going in that same direction.

U.S. Open: Novak Djokovic ML over Daniil Medvedev

The 2021 U.S. Open comes to an end on Sunday, and it could end in historic fashion. Djokovic is bidding for the first calendar-year Grand Slam in men’s singles since 1969, and if he achieves it he would also break a tie with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal atop the all-time slam singles titles chart.

On the -250 money line in Sunday’s final against Medvedev, Djokovic is inspiring 74 percent of the handle and 77 percent of the bets.
