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 SMU in this game
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in SMU games 48.5% of the time since 1997. (130-138)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in SMU games 41.2% of the time over the past 3 seasons. (21-30)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in HOUSTON games 50.6% of the time since 1997. (157-153)
