50bps is a lot of difference (sitting at 3:52 VIN is 13.50, futures 14.00x14.05). 25-30 bps is not too unusual, though.
Maybe it's a hint of the settlement. Maybe they expect futures down 5 or 6 again in the morning (like the past few.)
The settlement is even outside the VIX-Ask which is 13.98.
And then maybe futures tank 25bps into the 4:15 close. We shall see.
