I have a bit of inside knowledge of this, and that is that they are no longer necessarily setting lines to generate exactly even betting action (the traditional way a sports book operates, so that the house can never lose) and are now pursuing exploitative strategies that allow the book to make more money, including by modifying the vigorish to take in additional money.

So yes, they are screwing with takeout.
Now, even betting NFL games, "value" will become a component in the decision making on whether to bet or not.
