SportsInsights got another nice mention from ESPN.com’s Chad Millman:
“Every Saturday and every Sunday during football season I tweet the public and sharp betting trends for that day’s games.
The morning of the games, I check websites like … sportsinsights.com … to see where the largest percentage of bets are going, and that tells me who the public is betting on. The stats on these sites also show me which games have reverse line moves. That means one side is getting all the action but the line is going in the opposite direction. Inevitably those are the games the sharps have liked.”
Chad continues with an example about the Eagles-Bears game from this past Sunday.
“… This past Sunday, when I sent out the NFL trends tweet, I noted that the public was on Philly and that the sharps were on the Bears. I also added a comment that the Eagles being favored by three in Chicago was a ‘classic public perception line.’ “
