Line Moving in Giants-Vikings Matchup

NFL Monday Night Football Giants vs. Vikings Line Movement Report 10/3/16

There's been a fair amount of line movement ahead of tonight's Giants and Vikings Monday Night Football clash in Minnesota at 8:30PM ET. Here's the latest.

The Vikings opened as a 3.5-point home favorite for tonight's game against the Giants. That said, as soon as they beat the Panthers last Sunday in Carolina and New York fell to Washington at home, Mike Zimmer's team went from -3.5 up to -4 according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI. The total also dropped following the Vikings' harassment of Cam Newton, with the number going from 43.5 down to 43.

The line movement suggests that public and sharp bettors were on the same side initially, but that there's been some buyback on the Giants. Our NFL Public Betting figures show that 59% of public bettors are currently backing the Vikings, who got as high as -5 at some books before the buyback occurred. That type of line movement, in this case 3.5 up to 5, indicates that public bettors and sharps nabbed Minnesota early.

But the line must have gotten too high for some wiseguys because it's all the way back down to Minnesota -4. That's a fairly significant drop, so one should expect that the number at kickoff will be somewhere between Vikings -4 and Giants +4.5.

The favorite is 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings between these two teams while the Giants are 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven trips to Minnesota. The road team has also covered in seven of the last 10 meetings between these two teams.
