Johnny Detroit's "Line Movers" for Friday:

Going to try and stay on top of the movers and shakers for Friday and share with the board so they can see how games will move up and down multiple points in one move. It is not uncommon in the NBA to see a total move 3 points in one move. I monitor three real time lines feeds and can beat almost any book (besides the one making it of course) to a move. Not tons of movement in the NBA so far today, so looking forward to a rocky ride in the next few hours:

#719/720 Suns/Rockers went from Houston -1 to Sun now favored at -3.

The totals usually get pretty wacky, but so far look static. A middler's wet dream to see everything still close to the opener.

Stay tuned!


  • Heat game had a 1.5 point swing when rumor had it Memphis would be missing a starter. Getting moves like this and hammering the book who has yet to move can result in this:
