Biggest Money-line Upset
Giants (+369) at Redskins
It was simple, all Washington needed to do was win and they were in the playoffs. Instead, Kirk Cousins threw two second half interceptions and the Redskins fell to the Giants, a team with nothing to play for, 19-10.
Romo is back! The former starting quarterback played one series completing 3 of 4 passes for 29 yards and a touchdown. Romo looked good but was this the last game action he sees in a Cowboy uniform?
Raiders receiver Michael Crabtree and Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib got into a heated discussion in the first quarter of Denver’s 24-6 win over Oakland. Talib ended up yanking off the gold chain around Crabtree’s neck. Boy, that escalated quickly.
Trend Highlight – Buying Back on Steam
Many bettors like to chase steam, this means when a line moves in one direction a square bettor will follow the movement. However, this system takes advantage of that line movement and buys back on the other team.
All-time this Pro System is 117-68 (63%) ATS, +43.6 units.
There was a game that matched this system in Week 17, Giants vs. Redskins. Washington received a number of steam moves as their playoff scenario became clear, win and you’re in. It seemed that New York would take it easy with nothing to play for but the Giants announced their starters would not rest before their wild card matchup. New York ended Washington’s playoff hopes and cashed for bettors smart enough to buy back against the steam moves.
