We talked to Brent, head linesman from BetDSI, about the flow of action coming in on Sunday’s NFL games.
Pittsburgh at Dallas – Open: pick, Move: +1.5
Dez Bryant is likely to play despite nursing a fractured left index finger in this clash between two teams vying for a playoff spot, but that hasn’t stopped the flood of money coming in on the away team.
“Public betting has moved the Pitt line with a 2-to-1 bet count and one-sided volume,” says Brent. “The sharps haven’t gotten involved in this matchup as of yet. This may end up being a large decision game for the books.”
New York at Atlanta – Open: pick, Move: -1.5
This battle between division leaders is a tough game to handicap, causing a tug of war between sharps and the betting public.
“This game has seen a public vs. sharp opinion,” says Brent. “The public has poured in bets backing the Giants. The result of those opposite opinions has created a 3-to-1 bet count in favor of the Gmen, but a contrasting 2-to-1 money position favoring the Falcons.”
San Francisco at New England – Open: -3, Move: -4.5
The betting public is infatuated with the Patriots after their dominant win over the Texans last week. And who can blame them?
“The bet count on this game is currently coming in at 3-to-1 for the Pats with a lot of teasers in play for the spread on this game as well," notes Brent. “The sharps have not had much say on the side in this match up, but they did raid the total early hitting the under 48.”
