Steam Move

Last Updated:

A steam move in sports betting refers to a sudden and significant change in the betting line for a particular game, often caused by a large volume of bets being placed on one side of the line. This can create a situation where the odds are perceived to be heavily skewed in favor of one team, causing bettors to rush to place bets on that side before the line moves back to a more balanced position. Steam moves can happen for a variety of reasons, including sharp bettors (professional bettors who place large bets) making a move on a particular line, injury news or other factors that may affect the outcome of the game. It’s important to note that steam moves can happen quickly and unpredictably, so it’s important to stay up to date on the latest odds and betting trends to make informed decisions.
