Do you follow the 75 percent of the public that is riding the favorite or do you handicap the game yourself and realize the public is wrong and fade the majority?
The information and data that is provided by each of the sportsbooks is crucial in your own success as a bettor in wanting to be a consistent winner. Take a look at the consensus often leading up to game time as the consensus may change as interest grows stronger.
