Underdogs went 8-6 against the spread (ATS) in Week 9 to improve to 76-57 (57.1%) on the season.
Our NFL PRO Report took full advantage, pegging Cowboys +14.5, Giants +2.5 and Saints +4.5 as the week’s best values, all of which covered the spread.
In fact, the feature also identified Titans -6.5 as a savvy play, which also paid off for bettors.
So, what does our faithful PRO Report have in store for Week 10?
NFL Pick: Washington vs. Lions
After opening at +4.5, Washington now sits at +3.5, and sharps are the reason.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track a multitude of factors to pinpoint sharp betting action, are reporting a Steam Move at Washington +4.5, detailing why this spread has dropped to +3.5 (click here for live NFL odds) at the time of writing.
Steam refers to sudden and uniform line movement across the entire NFL market which is often the result of respected bettors getting down on the same side of the same game at multiple sportsbooks, all at once.
It often takes big bets from professionals to move a market as efficient as the NFL, and that’s exactly what’s happening in Washington vs. Lions.
The road underdog is garnering just 35% of the spread tickets, but those account for 44% of the money (click here for live betting percentages) showing exactly where the biggest bets are landing.
Historical data also pegs Washington as a smart bet, as it fits our highly-profitable Road Dog, Low Total After Bad Season PRO System which includes a 224-140-10 (62%) against-the-spread record since 2004.
In addition to Washington, one other Week 10 team fits this winning betting angle on Sunday. Take a minute to sign up for a FREE PRO Trial now to unlock this additional system match if you haven’t already.
