The Dallas Cowboys are -6 at home with a total of 52. The line is the same as the opener, though the total is up significantly from when it was released at 49.5. Only 60 percent of gamblers favor the Pokes, a mild surprise given the public’s bias towards significant home favorites. Consistent with the line move, not to mention public preconceptions and dispositions, 77 percent are hunkering down on the over, while 57-per-100 are laying the lumber on the moneyline on Dallas.
Sunday night MLB has the Royals sending Johnny Cueto to the bump to face Wei-Yin Chen. Cueto is a mild favorite on the road ranging from -113 to -118. The total is set at 8. An overwhelming majority of 79 are taking the Royals with a stunning 86 percent favoring the over.
OffshoreInsiders.com has colossal sharp player bets on both sides and both totals. NBC Sunday Night kickoff is 8:30, while ESPN MLB start time is 8:05.
