Did you know that lines and odds move throughout the day and night? Yep, they sure do. Ever wondered what causes that? It can be a number of things but primarily variables such as a ton of sharp action coming in on one side, a ton of public money coming in on one side, weather, injury or uncertainty of a key player's status.
Line moves are one of the most underrated aspects of sports handicapping. I mean c'mon fellas, if a line is moving its for a reason. Don't just take a position and stick with it based on your opinion. A line move should make you think long and hard about your play. Some times it may even be wise to buy out of your bet if the move is so signifigant that the odds have moved a bunch.
On the flip side, some people follow line movement too closely. You can't depend on a line move to make a pick for you. It's ridiculous to solely base your play on a baseball game that has gone from -125 to -150. It should however be noted and used as "extra" info to help support your play or knock you off of it. Many guys will run in blindly on movement and it's bad news. Dig and find out what the reason is before doing so, especially in point spread sports because if the line has already moved a few points in a football or basketball game, your late to the party and the value may have already been sucked out of the play leaving you in a position where if you tail, you may be at a big disadvantage.
We track line moves here at Predictem and note them along with some tidbits of info. These can be found in each sport's respective section here on the site. We have grouped them all here though so it'll be easy for you to find them. Updates to our line move pages usually happen late in the afternoon so we can assess each individual situation accordingly. Enjoy!
NFL Line Movement - We watch from the opening line until late in the week. We note any "big" changes and what our recommendation is along with the reason for the move if we can figure it out. (which usually we can.)
College Football Line Moves - With oodles of schools playing each week it's a bit difficult to always come up with the info that's gonna get the money but we'll sure as hell try to do our best!
NBA Basketball Line Moves - We've made some good bank versus NBA movement. We expect this to be one of our stronger points on the site when it comes to turning a profit.
Baseball Odds Movement - Here's another case where we do pretty well. Expect some decent earnings over the course of the season. Remember, it's a marathon, not a sprint so be patient degenerates!
We have decided not to carry NHL Hockey moves or big swings in other sports. We are gonna stick to what we know and what we're good at not to mention there's only so many hours in the day! We may add more later, but for now, that's all folks! Check back often and feel free to drop us a line from time to time: predictem at hotmail.com
