    With a nearly full slate (Dallas and St. Louis on bye) of NFL games this weekend we take a look at some of the more interesting line movements to see how the current lines got where they are today. Plus fun prop bets for the NFL involving the Broncos, Eagles, and Saints. Lines courtesy of Bovada.lv.
     
    Broncos vs. Chiefs
     
    Kansas City is 9-0 and the only undefeated team left in the NFL. Andy Reid is 13-1 all-time coming off a bye week. Yet, the Chiefs are 8 point dogs on the road in Denver. The game opened with the Broncos favored by 8.5, got bet down to 7.5 before settling at an even 8 points. The Chiefs are the fifth team since 1985 to start 9-0 and be underdogs of more than a touchdown.
     
    Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs 2013 Regular Season Matchup     
    Denver wins both games:  10/11   
    Kansas City wins both games:  7/1       
    Denver and Kansas City each win a game:  11/10   
     
    Denver is a 76.1% favorite to win this week and in two weeks we would project the Broncos to win 63.5% of the time at Arrowhead. This means there is a 48.3% chance that Denver wins both games. The odds imply that there is a 52.4% chance of this happening leaving no value in betting Denver to win both games. I’ll save you the trouble but there isn’t any value in betting the Chiefs to win both game or for a split. The bookmakers are right on the money with this prop bet.
     
    Eagles vs. Redskins
     
    This game opened with the Eagles favored by a field goal at home over the Redskins. By Thursday there had been nearly even action on both sides but the Eagles had crept up to 3.5 point favorites over their division rivals. This would indicate that sharp money had moved the line. As of writing the Eagles are now 4.5 point favorites.
     
    How many Home wins will the Philadelphia Eagles have in the 2013 Regular Season?
    Over 2.5:  1/1
    Under 2.5:  5/7
     
    The Eagles have lost a franchise-record 10 straight home games. Philadelphia has four games remaining at Lincoln Financial Field this season. Fun tidbit, if the Eagles were to lose every remaining home game, they would still have a 4.7% chance of winning the NFC East. Philly is currently 50.5% likely to win the division.
     
    Saints vs. 49ers
     
    The look ahead line for this game was Saints -2. The 49ers loss at home, plus the Saints blowout of Dallas has New Orleans favored by a field goal now. With 80% of wagers being placed on the Saints the juice has went to -120 which indicates that Vegas is pretty close to adding a hook (0.5 a point) to the Saints.
     
    New Orleans Saints- Total Offensive Yards Week 11 vs. the San Francisco 49ers?
    Over/Under:  410.5
     
    Against Dallas the Saints set an NFL record with 40 first downs and a regular season team-record with 625 total yards. New Orleans averages 463.6 yards at home this season. We recommend taking the under in total yards on this prop bet but it is close.

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
