What is a Drift in betting?
When the odds of a team or player increase, they are said to have Drifted. Drifting is usually a bad sign for a team or player winning in that market (than originally expected) usually due to a lot of money going on the other side of the market or new information (such as weather or injuries) favoring the other team. If the Boston Bruins' odds opened at -110 ($1.91) and closed at +200 ($3.00) their odds have drifted.
