Also, SSB is very important. It's the general working knowledge of where profit comes from in sportsbetting. The SSB forum doesn't win because the posters are forced to handicap and choose from widely available lines only. Needless to say, that's not how you beat sportsbetting. In fact, it's a pretty good indictment of handicapping in general and what a waste of time it is.
If nobody was beating the major sports you would never see big line moves against WA lines.
And logic dictates fading the steam moves would be incredibly "off the charts" profitable.

NBA game goes -4 to -6 WA

If offered -4 or +5 by a buddy I am assuming you would take +5 ?
