NFL Week 17 Smart Money Report

My weekly blog special the “Smart Money Report” Week 17 edition is here to help you guys out. Make sure to check here every Thursday during NFL season as I utilize all my sharps aka professional bettor contacts, Las Vegas Oddsmaker contacts, and NYC bookies to give you the info on what’s happening behind the counter in the NFL betting marketplace with every game on the board.

I always preach to pay attention to opening numbers. If you want to win like as sharp you have to think like a sharp I always say. Remember sharps aka professional bettors bet early in the week into opening numbers to get themselves the best value possible.

Remember squares aka the general betting public usually wait to place their bets until gameday before kick off. So any early moves you see during the beginning of the week is sharp money.

It’s important to realize that every early sharp move isn’t them holding on to that position. Sometime it’s head fake money which is sharps moving a line in order to get a more favorable number on game day betting the other side.

On the Vegas strip we saw Chicago open -1 as the early money came in on the home dog they flip flopped roles and now the Vikings are a 1 point favorite. The total opened at 41.5 and hit as low as 39.5 before settling at 41 come press time. No movement to report on the local NYC scene on this game.
