I see that the line has moved in this game from -7.0 to -6.5 which, in normal circumstances, should indicate that there has been a lot of money on the Seahawks.

However if you look at the consensus picks (1st link below) at covers.com, 77% of punters are picking the Ravens to cover the spread, so the line movement doesn't make sense

I then discovered this article (2nd link) which reckons that the movement is due to "sharps" backing the Dog because they offer good value

Very important to check bookie prices. I fancy St Louis to do the Browns, but while several firms had them at 2.35 (commission free obviously!), here they were 2.32 (with commission to come off). Too many plonkers on here have their bits and bobs only in Betfair. They can't exercise options because they haven't got any.
