    With a full slate of NFL games this weekend we take a look at some of the more interesting line movements to see how the current lines got where they are today. Plus fun prop bets for the NFL involving the Chiefs, Lions and Cowboys. Lines courtesy of Bovada.lv.

    Cowboys vs. Redskins
     
    Dallas has lost consecutive games against backup quarterbacks to put their playoff hopes in jeopardy. The Cowboys will get another crack at beating a second string signal caller Sunday when they face Kirk Cousins and Washington. Dallas was favored by 3.5 points but the line has been bet to the Boy’s by a field goal.
     
    If the Redskins trade Kirk Cousins before the 2014 NFL Draft is over will they get a 1st round pick for him?    
    Yes:  +200    
    No:  -300    
     
    Cousins passed for 381 yards and three touchdowns last Sunday against Atlanta helping to improve his value. It is impossible to say for sure if Washington will trade Cousins but without a first round draft pick of their own, it could be prudent for the Redskins to sell high on the second year player. If Cleveland can get a first round pick for Trent Richardson then Washington can surely get the same for a quarterback.

    Chiefs vs. Colts
     
    Kansas City and Indianapolis are both already in the playoffs but are now jockeying for position. The Chiefs opened as 6.5 point favorites at home; a seven popped up in the middle of the week but was quickly bet off the board. The interesting line movement has been on the over/under. With 95% of wagers being placed on the over the line has moved from 41.5 points to 45 points.
     
    Total Points scored by all teams in Week 16?
    Over/Under:  725.5
     
    Last Sunday was the highest scoring week in NFL History with a total of 763 points scored. Kansas City did its part to achieve that record by racking up 56 points against Oakland. In the last two weeks Kansas City has scored 101 points in two road wins. We would take the under on this prop bet as we project a total of 707.3 points to be scored on average.
     
    Lions vs. Giants
     
    Detroit desperately needs a win after relinquishing control of the NFC North to Chicago last week. The Lions are highly motivated whereas the Giants have been out of contention for a while. Yet, Detroit opened as 9.5 point favorites and the line has been bet down. I guess there is not a lot of faith in a Detroit team that has dropped four of its last five games.
     
    Eli Manning - Total Interceptions thrown in the Regular Season?
    Over/Under:  28
     
    The Lions have a 21% chance of making the playoffs, down from 68% just two weeks ago. An interception throwing quarterback will cure what ails you. Detroit will face Eli Manning Sunday after one of his worst performances as a pro that included tossing five interceptions. Manning has thrown an NFL high 25 picks this season.

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
