In the meantime, let's discuss where the money is flowing for the final game of NFL Week 11...
8:15 p.m. ET: New York Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
These NFC non-division foes are trending in opposite directions in recent weeks. The Giants (3-6 SU, 5-4 ATS) have won two of their last three games, most recently beating the Raiders 23-16 as 3-point road dogs. On the flip side, the Bucs (6-3 SU, 2-6 ATS) have lost two straight games. Tampa Bay just fell to Washington 29-19, losing outright as 10-point road favorites.
This line opened with the Bucs listed as a 12.5-point home favorite. The public is relatively split and leaning slightly toward laying the points with Tom Brady and the defending champs at home in a "get right spot." However, this line has fallen from 12.5 to 11, signaling some sharp action grabbing the Giants plus the points. New York matches several profitable betting systems this season. Road dogs are 62-35 ATS (64%), conference dogs are 67-42 ATS (62%) and primetime dogs are 22-10 ATS (69%). Double-digit Monday Night Football dogs are also very rare but highly profitable, going 17-4 ATS (81%) over the past decade. The Giants enjoy a rest advantage as New York is coming off a bye while Tampa Bay played on Sunday. Craig Wrolstad, the lead referee, has historically favored road teams (59% ATS).
Respected money has also leaned under. The total opened at 51 and has fallen to 50 despite the public pounding the over, indicating some sharp reverse line movement on the under. The forecast calls for 10-15 MPH winds, making this a "windy under" system match. When the wind blows 10 MPH or more the under is 35-15 (69%) this season. If the windy under also takes place in a conference game, the under is 20-11 (65%). If the total is 50 or higher, the under is 29-21 (58%).
