- Sharps aren't letting Saturday's NFL games slate pass them by. Well, at least not two of them.
- We detail how pros are betting 49ers-Cardinals and Dolphins-Raiders below.
The holiday season just keeps on giving to sports bettors, this time adding three NFL games to an already busy multi-sport slate. And a couple of those games have caught the attention of sharp bettors.
Let’s take a look using our PRO Report feature.

49ers vs. Cardinals Pick
Sharps and our experts are in agreement on this NFC West showdown, both finding value by taking the points with the 49ers.
As you could probably guess, a C.J. Beathard vs. Kyler Murray matchup is going to have a difficult time drawing bettors to the former. As of writing 21% of bets on this spread have landed on the 49ers, yet their line has fallen from +5 to +4.5. That alone should tell you something about the type of bettor they’re attracting.
Confirming San Francisco’s sharp backing, four Sports Insights Bet Signals have been triggered on the Niners, revealing four separate instances of market movement caused specifically by professional action.
Sharp Action edge: 49ers
Also giving sportsbooks some reason to drop this number, the 49ers, while attracting only 21% of bets, have generated 74% of the actual money hitting this spread. And while that obviously creates a monetary liability, it perhaps more importantly indicates that bigger bettors — the ones more likely to be sharps — are taking the points.
Big Money edge: 49ers
It’s not just the sharps finding underdog value, either. As of writing, two of our top NFL betting experts have also taken the 49ers and the points.

Dolphins vs. Raiders Odds

Dolphins vs. Raiders Pick
Once again, big bets from sharps are landing on the underdog, and once again, our experts agree. This time, they’re also both backed by a historically profitable betting system.
Unlike in the game above, the line movement doesn’t necessarily give away the sharp side here. That’s because it wasn’t until the Raiders reached the key number of +3 that sharps really made their move.
Since that point, though, 12 SI Bet Signals have landed on the Raiders, making the professional side of this spread clear.
Sharp Action edge: Raiders
Another significant discrepancy presents itself here, as the 29% of bettors on the Raiders have generated 55% of the actual money hitting this spread. And while this one may not create as much of a liability for sportsbooks, it still serves the purpose of revealing the opinion of bigger, sharper bettors.
Big Money edge: Raiders
If history is any indication, sharps are on the right side of this matchup. Thanks to the Dolphins’ 11-3 record against the spread and cover margin of more than eight points, the Raiders fit our Fade Covering Teams PRO System, which has returned a 56% cover rate on a sample of nearly 600 games since 2005.
PRO Systems edge: Raiders
And once again, it’s not just sharps making this play. As of Friday afternoon, five of our NFL experts have also jumped on the Raiders.
