Daily Line Move Log
303 Northern Illinois/304 Bowling Green- B Green opened -9.5 and have been bet up to -11.5 or -12. Mostly public money, but some sharp players as well. Some of them are getting out in front of the move, but some are keeping the side. Nonetheless, no wiseguys have stepped in to take value on the dog.
305 Texas/306 Baylor- Baylor opened -20 at Pinnacle. Money from the public and wiseguys have come in on Baylor, even with a third string quarterback. Chris Johnson was effective under center in his limited opportunities so far. Bettors thinking his success continues against the former big boys of the state.
309 Texas State/310 Arkansas State- Ark State opened -22, now up to -25.5 with a flood of pubic money. Take note, no sharp money standing in its way at this point.
317 Troy/318 U La Lafayette- U La La opened pick em. The public is on Troy, but the wiseguys have come in on U La La, pushing them up to -1.5.
319 Southern Mississippi/320 Western Kentucky- WKU opened -8.5 on the college football odds. Sharp money has shown on Southern Miss, taking WKU down to -7 in the sharpest books. The public is pretty split on the game at this point, so there is still some higher numbers around.
323 USC/324 Stanford- Stanford opened -3.5, sharper money in on Stanford as the college football pick, pushing the number up to -4.5 and even -5. The public is mostly split. No sign of any significant sharp money on the dog showing up.
325 Florida/326 Alabama- Bama opened -16 and quickly got bet up. It went as high as -17.5 before any real money showed up on the dog. Now Bama is mostly -17 though you can still find higher in some places.
331 Michigan State/332 Iowa- Lots of opinions on this game. Iowa has been a favorite whipping boy (team) from wiseguys in particular. Some others in the betting public have jumped aboard as well. Meanwhile a large amount of the public believes in the undefeated Hawkeyes and who can blame them? They just keep on winning. Michigan State opened -3, went up as high as -4.5, but money showed back on Iowa. Michigan now -3 or -3.5. With such divergent opinions, expect this to be the most heavily bet game of the weekend.
