Anyone that bets fighst will find this interesting. see many people asking how the sportsbooks do on several occassions. This can give you a little insight on a pretty busy MMA weekend.
I started this in the BettorMMA.com (a site I am apart of) forums. All contents of the thread are too much to post, but something everyone that bets on a fight should read to get a good feel for line moves etc.
Steam is when a betting line starts to move rapidly in one direction. Most "steam games" do not necessarily reflect objective circumstances, but are games that a mass of bettors are drawn to for some reason.
These Steam threads are based on Pinnaclesports (MMAtv site sponsor) Opening numbers.
These steam threads are the simplest example of showing that even at the best numbers on the chalk and the + money on dogs following and paying attention to heavy money moves is something to take into account when deciding who to wager on.
There are spoilers there.
