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 PITTSBURGH in this game.
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in DETROIT games 53.2% of the time since 1997. (1493-1312, +57.8 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in DETROIT games 56.1% of the time over the last 3 seasons. (166-130, +13.5 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in PITTSBURGH games 51.7% of the time since 1997. (1472-1373, -35.6 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in PITTSBURGH games 45.7% of the time over the last 3 seasons. (138-164, -48.0 units)
