The Daily Steam: Bookmakers Not Sold on Celtics, Tyrod Benched, More
Stuck at work all day today? No problem! Whether it’s someone named Nathan Peterman taking NFL snaps, lack of Celtics respect or wind blowing everywhere, I’ve got you covered.
Who is this Peter, man?
In a surprising move, the Bills are benching Tyrod Taylor and handing the starting QB gig to rookie Nathan Peterman. This game was already off the board due to Philip Rivers’ concussion, but be sure to check in at our Free NFL Live Odds page later in the week for updated lines and betting trends.
13-game winning streak? That’s cute…
The Celtics are 13-2 straight up and a ridiculous 12-2-1 ATS this season! Oddsmakers don’t care.
Golden State opened as a 6-point road favorite and has already been bet up to -6.5 for Thursday’s showdown with Boston. As much as I want to do it, I’ll spare you the obligatory Rodney Dangerfield reference.
It’s cold in DeKalb
Not only will it be chilly for tonight’s Western Michigan/Northern Illinois game, but very windy conditions are also in the forecast.
Not surprisingly, the total has dropped from 52.5 to 49.5 at Bookmaker. As Marky Mark points out in his college football weather preview, this won’t be the last you hear of wind this week.
Swallow the whistle!
Haywoode Workman and Brian Forte rank 2nd and 7th, respectively, in terms of units won when betting the ‘under’ in games they officiate. Both are working tonight’s Raptors/Pelicans game.
According to our betting percentage data, here are the most popular public sides of the day:
Steam at Bookmaker is a clear indicator that sharps have pounced on a number they love. And in tonight’s Indiana at Seton Hall game, boy did they ever.
