Cowboys vs. Giants Sharp Report
It doesn’t take long to surmise that sharps have consistently pounded one side of this matchup since the line opened.
Seventy-two percent of bets have landed on Dallas, yet the line has dropped from Cowboys -7 to -6.5.
Why? Because money from respected bettors hitting the Giants is more important for oddsmakers than the public loading up on Dallas, forcing sportsbooks to move the line and not allow sharps to take New York at the key number of +7 any longer.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track and report professional betting action in real-time, have reported an insane 19 (!) instances of market-moving money hitting the Giants.
However, it is very important to note that not a single one of the 19 SI Bet Signal triggers came at the current line of +6.5, showing just how important it is for professionals to lock in the +7.
