Team Line Action - Where the money is going!
Oddsmakers move a line in part because of one-sided public betting action on a side or total. They also move the line in reaction to wise guys selections. Either way, this section attempts to uncover whether the wise guys and public have a read on a given team. It summarizes both line and total movements. As a general rule, follow the line or total movement when percentages exceed 57% and go against it when they are below 43%.
As indicated by the movement of the line, the betting public is favoring KANSAS CITY in this game.
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in MINNESOTA games 0% of the time since 1997. (0-1217, -170.2 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in MINNESOTA games 52.4% of the time over the last 3 seasons. (178-162, -4.8 units)
