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 DETROIT in this game.
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in DETROIT games 0% of the time since 1997. (0-1115, 25.3 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in DETROIT games 56.4% of the time over the last 3 seasons. (233-180, +38.1 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in MINNESOTA games 49.5% of the time since 1997. (1159-1182, -176.4 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in MINNESOTA games 53.3% of the time over the last 3 seasons. (216-189, +1.7 units)
