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.

We are wrapping up a busy week in the world of sports with Week in 2 in the NFL. Among the public’s favorite plays starting in the late afternoon are the Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs. There are also plenty of betting opportunities in Major League Baseball. Let’s take a look at where the public money has gone so far.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals -4 over Minnesota Vikings

Bettors’ favorite NFL play of the late afternoon slate is on the Cardinals to cover the spread against the Vikings. Arizona at -4 is inspiring 77 percent of the handle and 86 percent of the bets. On the money line, the Cards are sizable -210 favorites. The public certainly isn’t scared away by that juice, though. A total of 75 percent of the money and 88 percent of the bets are supporting Arizona to win straight up.

We also feel great about the Cardinals’ chances following their impressive Week 1 performance against Tennessee. Check out our full game preview.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs ML over Baltimore Ravens

Bettors are also hammering the Chiefs in their road date with the Ravens. Kansas City on the -210 money line is getting 82 percent of the handle and 89 percent of the wagers. Punters are quite willing to give the 3.5 points, too. The Chiefs ATS are bringing in 92 percent of the handle, and 86 percent of the bets are going in the same direction.

And why not? Lamar Jackson’s struggles in this matchup throughout his career are well-documented. Moreover, Baltimore is playing on a short week after losing a heartbreaker to Las Vegas on Monday Night Football.
