Week 14 of College Football is here and so is Brent from Betdsi to help us with our picks.
This week in the college segment of the Into The Weekend with BetDSI show, we started out by covering three of the huge marquee matchups for our NCAAF picks – Alabama/Auburn, Clemson/South Carolina, and Texas A&M/Missouri.
It turned out that with all three of the games, Brent has taken notable sharp action, despite the fact that they are so high-profile and involve elite teams this year.
Amazingly, with the Iron Bowl, Brent told me that he has two-way sharp action on the side, although of course at different numbers. Sharp action came in on both Alabama -10, and Auburn +10.5 on the odds boards.
And with the other two games, Brent tells me that he not only has sharp action on a side in each, but that it is also mostly one-way action as well, with the public action mostly on the same side as the sharp action. That is always an uncomfortable situation for any bookmaker to be in.
In the NFL, we opened by discussing the New England/Houston game. Normally, the Pats as more than a touchdown road favorite is a situation the sharps would not touch, especially when they are off of a high-profile win, as they are this week. But that does not appear to be the case this week, as the sharps did come in early on the Pats, even taking them at -7, according to Brent.
There are also three big road dogs this week – Jacksonville, Tampa Bay, and St Louis – all of which have the feel of being a possible sharp side. But according to Brent, only one of them has in fact taken notable sharp action.
And as always, in both segments, Brent identified further sharp action he has seen on games from the rest of this weekend’s respective cards.
