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 Nobody in this game.
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in BOSTON games 0% of the time since 1997. (0-1214, -146.0 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in BOSTON games 51.4% of the time over the last 3 seasons. (171-162, -13.0 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in MINNESOTA games 49.6% of the time since 1997. (1184-1202, -170.2 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in MINNESOTA games 52.3% of the time over the last 3 seasons. (161-147, -4.8 units)
No Edge.
 
The betting public is favoring nothing on the total in this game.

Power Rating Line

A power line is calculated using both teams ratings and home field advantage. Where the power line differs significantly from the current line, the team with the edge is indicated.
