Andrews: Inside the betting action for pro football Week 4 games – VSiN

By Chris Andrews  (VSiN.com) 
As many of you know, here at South Point, we always deal NFL sides at -110. We never manipulate the juice, going to -120, EVEN, etc. so we often are faced with the dance between the key numbers of 2.5 and 3 on a game. One group of opinions likes and lays the -2.5, another group of opinions immediately takes the + 3. There are two games on this week's card that have me going back and forth like I'm watching a tennis match. This may be an idea for another VSiN T-shirt or some sort of bookmaker's "dance" move. I don't know. Part of the job, I guess . . . and truly probably my preferred type of dancing.

We have been all over the place in this game. We opened 3 and they took it. Wait a minute. Honestly, I can't even keep track: 2.5, 3, 2.5, 3, back and forth, back and forth. The dance, right? Does that help anybody envision a T-shirt idea? Really, I liked the higher number better because of the way Jameis Winston has looked. As far as an adjustment, I think a healthy Andy Dalton is about the same as a banged-up Winston. We did have some movement on the total with the news of the injury. We opened at 44, it dropped to 43.5, then we went to 42, and they bet Under that, too. Now it's at 41.5.

We opened this 3 and they laid the 3. We are now at 3.5. I do see a lot of 4's out there but we haven't gone there yet. I actually have more Tennessee money at the 3.5 even though there are 4's available elsewhere. No movement here on the total.

We opened 3 and they laid me the 3. We went to 3.5 and they took back the 3.5 and now they're even starting to take the 3. I do see some spots that have gone to 3 with juice on the dog. Of course, we don't do that, but I certainly don't have enough to go to 2.5. No movement on the total here either.

We opened Chargers -6. They took the 6 and I went to 5. They laid back the 5 and now I'm back at 5.5. Pretty even action. The public is on the favorite, but the sharp money took the 6. They're not interested in anything less than 6. On this total, we opened 44. They bet me Over 44 and they bet me Over 45. They bet me back Under 45.5 and we're back to 45.

Opened this one 3.5 and the first bet came in at + 3.5. I went to 3 and they laid back the 3 with a vengeance. Sharps and the public are on the Steelers -3, and right now, the wise guys are not coming back taking the 3.5 at all. I opened the total 41.5. They bet me Under 41.5, Under 41 and I went to 40.5. They bet me back Over 40.5 and I'm back to 41.5.

We opened Dallas -3. Sharp guys laid the 3, we went to 3.5, and a different sharp outfit took the 3.5, so I'm back to 3. However, I think this game is going to go back to 3.5 eventually and I think that will be due in large part to the public. We opened the total 42.5, they bet me Under and I'm at 41.5.
