Team Line Action
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%.
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in BYU games 53.1% of the time over the past 3 seasons. (17-15)
The betting public is correct when moving the money line in UNLV games 63.6% of the time over the past 3 seasons. (21-12)
