Money near dead even on the Buccaneers-Saints matchup

In advance of their Divisional Round matchup with the New Orleans Saints, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have attracted 53% of the bets and 51% of the money thus far.

Betting Impact:

The Buccaneers are +2.5 point road underdogs against the Saints, per BettingPros consensus odds. The line hardly moved at all this week as it stayed at New Orleans -3 until yesterday, but very late movement has this line off the key number of three. Thus, even though the money is nearly 50/50, some respected money must have come in on Tampa Bay as the reason for why oddsmakers felt the need to move the line. This type of betting split is an oddsmaker's dream, as there does not appear to be any real liability with either side covering the spread.
