273 Patriots/ 274 Colts- We knew since Brady’s balls got deflated the Pats would be one of the biggest public betting sides. They didn’t disappoint. Pats opened -7, had been bet all the way up to -10 as of yesterday Today wiseguy money came in on the dog. Pats now anywhere from -8.5 to -9.

 

275 Giants/276 Eagles- Eagles opened -4 or -4.5, bet up a bit at first, then back down to -4, then back up to -4.5 and -5 this morning.

 

College Football
111 Cincinnati/112 BYU- Both starting quarterbacks had been questionable at times, but the line has only fluctuated between BYU -6 and -7. BYU’s Mangum will play, the Cincy QB will be a game time decision. Both Cincy QBs have played well.

 

113 Houston/114 Tulane- Houston opened at -16.5, steadily bet up to -20.5. Both sharp and public money on Houston.

 

117 UNLV/118 Fresno State- Fresno opened -3.5 with UNLV QB Blake Decker questionable. Now that he is expected to be available UNLV is up to -7.

 

139 Purdue/140 Wisconsin- Wisconsin opened -19.5, bet up to -24 before a little money came back on the dog. Wisco now mostly -23.5.

 

145 Texas Tech/146 Kansas- Tech opened -28, then bet steadily up to -31.5 and -32.

 

159 Alabama/160 Texas A&M- One of the biggest games of the weekend, but no real movement. Bama has been between -3.5 and -4.5 with mostly -4 being the number.

 

163 Nebraska/164 Minnesota- Minny opened pick, bet up to -2.5 with sharp money.

173 Michigan State/174 Michigan- Michigan opened -6.5, got bet up to -8.5, now back to -7. Lots of opinions and sharp money on both sides depending on the number.

 

181 Tulsa/182 East Carolina- ECU opened -9.5 been bet by the wiseguys and up to -13.5 and -14. Public is on the dog, surprisingly.

203 USC/204 Notre Dame- Notre Dame was -4 when Steve Sarkisian was put on leave, then fired. The line was adjusted to -6.5. I’m still not sure how the absence of a drunk coach means 2.5 points to the other team. But, hey, that’s just me.

 

205 Mississippi/206 Memphis- Ole Miss opened -9.5, got bet up to -10.5 by sharp and public money. This is the under the radar best game of the week.
