    Not exactly sure why but WIU has moved from a 3.5 point favorite to a pick 'em against South Dakota. I would've expected that line to move in the opposite direction given USD's recent trending and the fact that they're 2-7 against the spread this year. Seems like some pretty easy money could be put on WIU there.

    Probably just a function of more USD fans out there and WIU being frequently (at least from my perspective) underestimated. They put us as 3.5 point favorites, so you get USD fans putting money on the "upset" which moves the odds back down to around "even". That is how that works, right? I'm not a gambling expert, but I think that's how that would work.

    Yeah, that's how the lines move. I doubt 5dimes does it for these "small potatoes" games but in Vegas they sometimes stop moving the line for a game or move it more slowly for a game where most of the money is coming in on one side because they think bettors are just wrong.

    But in general if sports books had their way they'd have 50% of the money come in on each side for every game because with the rake they're guaranteed to win.
