Sharps Quick To Fade Several Teams

Among the biggest early movers on the NCAAF Week 3 betting board at BetOnline after the dust had settled after open on Sunday afternoon was Mississippi State, who went from opening 5-points chalks quickly to -10 for their SEC-Big 12 battle at Kansas State on Saturday from Bill Snyder Family Stadium (GameDay Grass) in Manhattan, KS.

Utah State flew from 18- to 22½ in the Billy Walters-blink-of-an-eye — rubbing some expensive sea salt in my best bet for NCAAF Week 5 and proving the biggest servers and the wiseguys always get the best numbers because they’re there when they’re released — for their revenge game against New Mexico State. North Carolina went up +3 from 11½ to 14½ for their Tar Heel State clash with East Carolina, and lovable ATS maven Utah got enough really early money to go up 3½ points from 7 to 10½ and through a couple key numbers for their Saturday date at Northern Illinois.

Some other significant games that didn’t move as much but did move at least 2 points in those first heavy three hours of trading on Sunday: TCU rose 3 for its Friday night NCAAF Week 2 lidlifter at SMU; Michigan got enough money to go up 2 points for its Saturday game vs. Western Michigan (noon ET, FS1); dogs Duke dropped 2½ at Northwestern on Saturday (noon ET, ESPNU); Kansas went up 2 for its game at Central Michigan on Saturday; and big dogs South Alabama also saw a 2-point move for their game Saturday at Oklahoma State.
