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 have another busy day in the world of sports. Week 6 in the NFL is taking center stage, while the NLCS continues with Game 2 between the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers. The first week of the 2021-22 NHL campaign is also wrapping up.

Let’s take a look at where the public money has gone so far on Sunday.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys -3.5 over New England Patriots

One of bettors’ favorite NFL plays of the day is on the Cowboys to cover the spread against the Patriots. Dallas at -3.5 is inspiring 81 percent of the money and 85 percent of the wagers. Unsurprisingly, the Cowboys are also getting hammered on the -190 money line. They are being backed by 92 percent of the handle and 90 percent of the bets to win straight up.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals ML over Cleveland Browns

The public is also enthused by the undefeated Cardinals. Arizona on the +145 money line is drawing 79 percent of the handle and 75 percent of the wagers as punters feel good about a minor upset (yes, the Cards are underdogs despite being 5-0). However, bettors are less inclined to bother with the points; they just want the outright victory at +145 odds. Arizona at +3 is bringing in a more modest 54 percent of the money, although a sizable 70 percent of the bets are also going in that direction.

NFL: Seattle Seahawks vs Pittsburgh Steelers Over 43

When it comes to game totals, the public likes the over in this Sunday Night Football showdown between Seattle and Pittsburgh. A total of 60 percent of the handle and 74 percent of the bets are backing Over 43. Punters are also pretty high on the Steelers, who are getting 64 percent of the handle and 72 percent of the wagers on the -220 money line. At -4.5 they are also inspiring 71 percent of the money and 65 percent of the wagers to cover the spread.

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers ML over Atlanta Braves

Bettors have been all over Los Angeles all year long and nothing is changing despite the NLCS Game 1 loss on Saturday. The Dodgers are expected by the public to bounce back and even up this series. They are bringing in 74 percent of the handle and 82 percent of the wagers on the -170 money line. The public isn’t scared away by the -1.5 run line, either. A total of 76 percent of the money and 73 percent of the wagers are hoping for a L.A. win by multiple runs.

NHL: Dallas Stars vs Ottawa Senators Over 5.5

There is only one NHL game on today’s schedule and punters like the over for Dallas vs. Ottawa. Over 5.5 is drawing 76 percent of the money and 64 percent of the bets. There is more disagreement on the sides. The Stars are being backed by 72 percent of the handle to cover the -1.5 puck line, but Senators +110 is inspiring 89 percent of the money line handle.
