Steelers vs. Ravens

Sharp Action

According to Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, sharps have taken a clear position on the under for what is likely the biggest game of Week 8.

In two separate instances, smart money has come in on the Steelers vs. Ravens under, and the market has adjusted accordingly from 49 down to the current number of 46.5 (see live NFL odds here).

Big Money

While attracting just 45% of the bets, the under has landed 62% of the money, meaning the larger-sized wagers are also on that side of the total.

PRO Systems

So why are professional bettors so bullish on this under? The wind.

The Action Network’s High Winds PRO System reveals that NFL games played in double-digit breezes have gone under the total 57% of the time since 2003.

Current forecasts are calling for 10 mph winds at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

If you’re into betting windy unders, this is the week for you! NFL Week 8 is currently offering nine (!) games expected to be played in winds of at least 10 mph and you can see them all by clicking right here.

PRO Report Pick: Under 46.5


Saints vs. Bears

Sharp Action

The Saints vs. Bears under has plummeted from 47 to 42.5 since opening and yes, sharps are the reason.

Bet Signals have tracked two smart money moves on the under, which is becoming a theme of Week 8.

Big Money

Fifty-nine percent of tickets have landed on the under, indicating that the majority of bettors are already expecting a lower-scoring matchup.

Add in the fact that those bets account for 91% of the money (click here to see live betting percentages) and it’s clear that’s where oddsmakers have their liability as well.

PRO Systems

The conditions for Saints vs. Bears aren’t just windy, they’re windy AF.

Breezes of 22 mph are expected at Soldier Field on Sunday, which would EASILY clear the 10-mph benchmark needed for a savvy windy under.

And the most shocking part of that forecast, it’s not even the windiest of Sunday’s games.

Four games are expected to see winds of at least 20 mph, with two even touching the 25-mph mark. Be sure to track them all here through our High Winds System.
