Is that really jacking the line or since local bookies are taking more pats bets than Vegas would be they need to have a higher line to cover themselves?
I'm not real familiar with how it works
If they always see one team get bet consustantly more than another they will probably at thr very least side with the higher line.
In Vegas you may see a bunch of -7s and a bunch of -7.5s. Bookie will open with the -7.5 if he is suspecting more action. Then adjust from there.
My bookie does the same as Eds. He sends lines out 1 hour before games. He will adjust once in a while especially for late info but sometimes it looks like for more even action.
I can tell he likes to jack the Bills line off key numbers or onto key numbers. If the Bills are -2.5 everywhere they will probably be -3 with him. If they are +3 every where they will probably be +2.5 with him.
