The biggest college football moves of the past 24 hours. Always a lot of jostling off the opening line as bookmakers try to find the right number.
103 North Carolina/104 Pitt- North Carolina was sitting at -1.5, but bet up by sharp money to -3.
109 Texas State/110 Georgia Southern- Georgia Southern opened -19, bet up to -21 with sharp and public money. All these games where the favorites moved, the public has been on them as well. No big surprise.
119 La Tech/120 Rice- La Tech opened -9.5 or -10, bet up to -12 or -13 from public and sharp money.
123 South Florida/124 Navy- Navy opened -10, sharp money for South Florida takes it to -7. Wiseguys have been on South Florida quite a bit lately.
139 Mississippi/140 Auburn- Ole Miss opened -5 or -6, bet up to -7 or -7.5 by sharp and public money.
151 Georgia/152 Florida- Florida opened -1, but up to -2 and -3 by sharp and public money.
153 USC/154 California- USC opened -6.5, bet down to -5.5 by the wiseguys. Strictly a wiseguy move at this point.
157 Ga Tech/158 Virginia- Ga Tech opened -3.5 and -4, bet up to -5 and -6 by sharp and public money. No chance the public would be on Virginia and against Ga Tech after last week’s high profile win by Tech.
163 Texas/164 Iowa State- Texas opened -8, bet down to -6.5 by the wiseguys. Iowa State shook up their staff this week, firing offensive coordinator Mark Mangino. Iowa State definitely playing better the past couple weeks. Not sure why they fired Mangino now. Joel Lanning was also named starting quarterback over veteran Sam B Richardson.
167 Vandy/168 Houston- Houston opened -14, wiseguys came in on the dog, betting them down -11. Vandy is getting it together in head coach Derek Mason’s second season.
171 Tennessee/172 Kentucky- Tennessee opened -7, bet up to -8.5 by mostly sharp money.
175 Central Florida/176 Cincinnati- Cincy opened -23, bet up to 27 by sharp and public money. Central Florida head coach George O’Leary resigned this week.
183 UTEP/184 Southern Miss- So Miss opened -19.5, bet up to -24 with sharp money and a little from the public.
197 Tulane/198 Memphis- Memphis opened -27, bet up to -30.5 and -31 by sharp and public money.
203 Colorado/204 UCLA- UCLA opened -18.5, bet up to -21 by sharp and public money.
