Where the action is: NFL Week 16 line moves
Playoff implications and lack of motivation litter NFL Week 16. We talk with online sportsbook BetDSI.eu about the biggest line moves on the board.Minnesota Vikings at Houston Texans (-8, 45)
Houston has been hit hard and often by the public. The sharp opinion is also backing the Texans, albeit lightly pushing the line to its current -8 value. The teaser action on this game is high as is the bet count at a current 3-to-1 ratio in favor of the Texans. This is one of those games that will make a nice weekend for the books if Minnesota can win outright.Indianapolis Colts at Kansas City Chiefs (+7, 41.5)
This has been a completely public dominated affair with the bet count and money count both in favor of the colts at 6-to-1 and 7-to-1 ratios. Sharps have not chimed in on this game and probably won’t.
New York Giants at Baltimore Ravens (+2.5, 47)
The Giants, as usual, are attracting public money on the over. There is a sharp opinion leaning towards the under here but not enough to invert the bet versus amount bet positions. The side is seeing about an 8-to-1 money wagered count in the Giants favor with teaser action going their way as well. This game has been a public-driven position with no real sharp opinion on this side.
Green Bay Packers at Tennessee Titans (+12.5, 44.5)
Sharps have backed the Titans at double-digit spread values. The Packers have a public backing to the tune of a 5-to-1 advantage in terms of bet count and a 2-to-1 advantage in terms of money wagered.
San Diego Chargers at New York Jets (-3, 37.5)
There is a sharp-versus-public contrast with the public driving a 3-to-1 bet count in favor of the Chargers and the sharps driving a 2-to-1 wager volume advantage in favor of the down-and-out Jets. Sharp action has driven the line down hard in this unattractive matchup.
Other Week 16 Notes:
This week there are not a lot of sharp-versus-public contrasts. The Week 16 card has seen the sharps backing totals with the under 44/44.5 for the St Louis-Tampa Bay matchup and the over 36 in the Chicago-Arizona game.
