Where the action is: NFL Divisional Round line moves

Jan 11, 2013 |
Action on this weekend’s NFL Divisional Round playoff games is picking up as game time draws near. We talk with BetDSI.com about where sharp and public money are playing as well as where the line could end up by kickoff.

Baltimore Ravens at Denver Broncos (-9.5, 46)

According to BetDSI.com, public and sharp money is split on this early AFC game. The betting public is siding with the Broncos at home but wiseguy action has jumped on the Ravens. While the money is balanced on both sides, Denver is taking more bets at a 2-to-1 pace. Sportsbooks are also seeing a lot of Broncos teaser action, which has been the case all season.

Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers (-2.5, 44.5)

Most books have remained steady on the field-goal spread, not wanting to move off the key number. Some books are reporting one-sided money on the Packers but BetDSI.com is getting hit with late 49ers money from the sharps. According to their oddsmakers, San Francisco is outnumbers Green Bay at 3-to-1 in terms of action and bets placed.

Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons (-3, 45.5)

This spread was available as low as Falcons -1 but has since climbed as high as a field goal at some markets. The Seahawks’ move to +3 has attracted some added wagers from the wiseguys and has the bet count very balanced heading into the weekend. Atlanta, however, has the edge in action, outnumbering Seattle at 2-to-1 when it comes to the money.

Houston Texans at New England Patriots (-9.5, 47.5)

Despite a lopsided loss at New England in Week 14, sharps have sided with the Texans since opening. The bet count and action wagered is fairly split between Houston and New England, but the Patriots have grabbed a lot more teaser money. According to BetDSI.com, “bettors have gone teaser crazy on the Patriots in this matchup, taking the line to the -2 to 2.5 ranges”. There are also plenty of New England moneyline bets (-435) tied into parlays.
