The NFL is back on Thursday night with the 2021 Hall of Fame Game between the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Not only is professional football returning to our lives as fans, but NFL betting is also here once again.
Many casual bettors have little interest in betting on the NFL preseason, but pros are happy to take any edge they can find, even if it’s an exhibition matchup like the Hall of Fame Game. And from the looks of the betting data that we’ve tracked so far today, sharps have been taking a serious position on the Cowboys vs. Steelers over/under in the hours leading up to kickoff.
Below we’ll examine how smart money from respected bettors is forcing oddsmakers to continually adjust odds Thursday night’s Hall of Fame Game.
Cowboys vs. Steelers Pick
As recently as earlier this morning, the Cowboys vs. Steelers over/under sat at 33.
Now it’s down to 31.5, which is tied for the lowest Hall of Fame Game total ever tracked by our Bet Labs software.
Why? Well, I’m sure you can guess if you read the intro, but it’s very much professional betting action that has this number on the move.
In general, betting on the Cowboys vs. Steelers total is split with 54% of tickets landing on the over thus far.
However, our PRO betting tools are reporting that sharps steamed the under early Thursday afternoon, pushing this total down 1.5 points to the current price.
Many recreational bettors may opt to lay off tonight’s game, but wiseguys have clearly taken a position on the Hall of Fame Game under.
