Refresh this blog throughout the games to track bad beats, movement on the live betting line, halftime bets and more.

UPDATES

8:15 p.m.: That’s it for today. It was a huge Week 1 for bettors playing underdogs and unders. Favorites went just 4-10 against the spread, and eight of the underdogs scored outright upsets, led by the Pittsburgh Steelers cashing at +240 in a 23-16 victory at Buffalo. Totals went 9-5 to the under.

The worst bad beat of the day belonged to bettors who laid -8½ or more with the 49ers. San Francisco led the Lions 41-17 with two minutes to play, but the Lions got two touchdowns and 2-point conversions, with an onside kick in between, to cover in a 41-33 loss.

Betting results for every game — full game, first half and second half — plus some key boxscore stats are listed at the bottom of this story.
