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 IOWA in this game
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in PENN ST games 54.1% of the time since 1992. (112-95)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in PENN ST games 60% of the time over the past 3 seasons. (15-10)
