I would have thought up because the amount paid out per dollar bet has gone up... ie the odds have gone up. If the odds of the selection winning had gone down we would be paid out less. Well thats my logic. But I already know most of you will call it moving down. But Why????


This subject drives me batty!

I always say "better" or "worse" as it relates to the bettor. 

If a line moves from 5-1 to 7-1...odds just got better.

just depends on ur lingo is guess.

 -135 to +105 odds dropped and got a lot better.  So they went down is what I would  personally say
 but we all know the odds got better for the Better if u like a -135 and drops to +105 no matter what it's better odds
