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 MINNESOTA games 49.2% of the time since 1997. (1384-1427, -223.7 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in MINNESOTA games 47% of the time over the last 3 seasons. (151-170, -39.2 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in DETROIT games 53.1% of the time since 1997. (1514-1335, +51.8 units)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in DETROIT games 55% of the time over the last 3 seasons. (187-153, +7.4 units)
