Understanding How Our Live Odds Feed Works
Make sure you are up to date with today’s betting lines. This page will list all available lines for the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, NCAAB and NCAAF.
For football and basketball, the primary display will show the point spread and the total. For hockey and baseball, we display the money line of the favorite along with the total of the game.
You also have the option of switching the view to show only one sport. Just click on the drop-down box at the top of the page and select the sport you are interested in.
There are some added features to visiting a specific page. These pages will list the spreads and totals for today’s games. They will also show any available lines for the following day. You will also be able to see the price of the underdog, as well as the run/puck line.
Tools for Betting Tonight’s Vegas Moneylines, Spreads & Totals
This page does more than just inform you of today’s betting lines. You have easy access to both the start times and rotation numbers for each game. It shows the opening line for each matchup below the title “Opener.” You can also see a consensus from all the books under “SC Odds”
There’s also a great handicapping tool in the main display. I’m confident it will help you in the long-run.
“Bet %” shows the percentage of bets being placed on each side of a matchup. Not to be confused with the amount of money being wagered. It’s simply a percentage of the total number of bets.
Teams receiving a high majority (60% or more) of wagers are typically a result of a lot of public action. That’s not always the case, but it’s a good rule of thumb. The public tends to lose more than they win, so these might be games you want to avoid if possible.
It’s important to note that this page updates every 15 minutes. That allows you to stay on top of any line movement.
