Every week we give a report on the lopsided bets directly from the sportsbook itself. For the bet to make our report, both the total tickets and actual money wagered must both be lopsided on the same team by 67% or more.
The operating logic for this type of reporting is that many people try to avoid betting the same side as the public for several reason. The line may be inflated, there maybe a misconception about how good one team is or anyone of a myriad of other possibilities.
Some folks take it one step further and actually bet the ATP (against the public) plays. Their logic is that the sportsbooks always end up winning in the end so may as well ride their coattails.
