Nice... Can't wait to see where line moves to
Mine opened at -8 but it shouldn't move much. Too much money will be bet on this game so my guess is Vegas doesn't toy with it.
Vegas doesn't you with the line...if the line moves it is because enough money has been bet on one side to move it. I think one million on either side moves the line .5 points or a full point.
This is not true...there is no set number that will move the line. You can see where the money is flowing by pegging the movement to the % of bets placed on either side.
I also thought the same thing but I heard a line maker say once that it depends on who bets as to whether the line moves. For example if average Joe walks in like Mayweather and bets 3 million they don't care, but a so called 'Sharp' can bet significantly less and the line will move.
