Whether you read my NFL PRO Betting System piece already or tuned into The Action Network’s pre-game betting show “Convince Me!” to see Chris Raybon wax poetic about Chiefs vs. Raiders, you know that the Sunday Night Football total is offering value for bettors.
The betting market has confirmed that suspicion as late money from professional bettors has Chiefs vs. Raiders odds on the move.
Let’s take a look at how sharp betting action is affecting Sunday Night Football.
NFL Picks: Chiefs vs. Raiders
As recently as early this morning, the Chiefs vs. Raiders over/under sat at 57 at DraftKings.
However, a quick visit to our NFL Live Odds page shows that number down to 56.
Why? Because sharps steamed the under late this morning forcing oddsmakers to react by adjusting down to 56.
Steam refers to sudden, uniform line movement across the entire betting market and is often the result of wiseguys making the same bet at multiple sportsbooks, all at once.
Please note that if you haven’t yet bet the Chiefs vs. Raiders under but are considering it, there are still a handful of sportsbooks hanging 56.5, so be sure to shop around and grab the best number possible.
