Does sharp money ever move a line for an NFL game?

My thought was always that on fully bet games like NFL, the vast majority of the betting is by the public, and the sharp betting has virtually no chance to influence the line. I recall reading this in many places. The only lines that are moved by sharp money, if I recall correctly, are "underbet" games, like obscure college games and so on.

Is this correct? All the line moves I ever see for fully bet games like playoffs or NFL games always appear to be solely moved by the public.

But I think that in general OP is underestimating the amount of sharp money.

The morrison clowns were betting a lot of WNBA, till they lost that C bet (they were moving these lines 5+ pts sometimes).

There are a bunch of idiots following some want to be touts at sbr in wnba, they allegedly are winning, they are also teasing wnba games.

And yea I love losing +7.5 by 8 in ot

Are lesbians more prone to gambling degeneracy than hetero women?
