In the Dodds article, there were three demands, one (the bedroom tax) which is clearly more favourable to Labour, one (immigration, in an EU context) that is clearly more favourable to the Tories, and one (Defence spending) that could go either way.

You got any clue as to how that could work out in practice, or are they maybe deliberately hedging so as to be able to play a bidding game if they really are in a position to swing things?

Actually Labour are trying to out-Tory the Tories on immigration generally, and anyway I found the wording sufficiently ambiguous that it could cover a lot. So (as I am about to say in another forum) I think the DUP are more likely to want to screw concessions out of a weak government than to be in the position of making the choice themselves.
