Steelers vs. Chiefs, Packers vs. Cowboys Playoff Odds, Weather, Line Moves
The Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys top the sports betting portfolio for Sunday. Clear-cut consensus and/or line moves have occurred on each. The Steelers-Chiefs game was moved to 8:20 ET because of weather. By kickoff, temperatures are expected to rise above freezing and a 90 percent chance of rain showers is expected. However, the kickoff temp is 34, so if the weatherman is a little off, snow and ice could rule the night.
Kansas City has been bet up to a 2.5-point favorite after opening as one-point underdogs. The total has dropped to 44.5 after debuting at 46.5, but Bob Warner of Lines-Maker.com assures us that the total move is purely because of the weather forecast and not sharp action.
The side qualifies as reverse line movement with 56 percent of the bets are on Pittsburgh despite the line moving in the opposite direction. The most modest of majorities, 51 percent of wagers are on the under.
In what is now the opening game, the Dallas Cowboys are laying five-points with a total of 52. The initial line saw -4 and 51.5. Sixty-two percent of bets are on the sizzling-hot Packers, 77 percent on the over. Though the public generally bets on favorites, underdogs are more common public bets in the playoffs.
