Spread dropping in Cowboys vs. Redskins
Despite the majority of public bettors backing the home team to cover, the point spread in tonight's Cowboys-Redskins game continues to fall.
The Redskins opened as 4-point favorites versus the Cowboys for tonight's 8:30PM ET kickoff but according to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, Washington is now only -2.5. The total is also on the move, going from 42 points up to 42.5.
Our NFL Public Betting page shows that 71% of wagers on tonight's game are currently on the Redskins -2.5. Thus, the reason for the line movement is likely sharp-related, as wiseguys are buying the Cowboys and betting the line down. Whether or not they'll swoop in and buy back Washington at a discounted price is not known, but it'll be interesting to see what kind of line movement we'll see leading up to kickoff.
