Peter Loshak is joined by Brent from BetDSI to go over a few of the most intriguing betting lines on offer. Which of these betting odds look to offer us an edge for our sports picks?

Week 15 in college football doesn’t feature a lot of games, but most will generate significantly higher-than-normal action, according to Brent from BetDSI. Part of that will be due to many of the games being marquee matchups, and I made sure to touch on three of them in my weekly show with Brent this week. 

Ohio St/Michigan St has been the most-debated college line and game so far this week, with many people weighing in with opinions on line value with each side, citing various factors and reasoning. That game was the first one I asked Brent about, but unfortunately for anyone looking for clarity, Brent told me that even at DSI, the sharp action he took on the game was split, with some on Michigan St at +5.5, and some on Ohio St at -5.

The Missouri/Auburn game was the second one I asked specifically about, and I correctly guessed that the movement in the College Football odds in that game, where Missouri has gone from a small underdog to a small favorite, had to have been driven only by sharp action. 

And Brent had more interesting things to say about the betting action in Oklahoma/Oklahoma St, where the line opened at Oklahoma St -11, crossed over 10 down to 9, but has since gone back up to 10, settling there for now. 

In the NFL segment of the show this week, I started things off by asking about another line that has a lot of people scratching their heads this week, the KC/Washington game. I suspected that there could wind up being a sharp/public split on that spread in a video early this week, and Brent confirmed to me that my initial suspicions came to pass. 

Then I made sure to touch on two other highly-debated NFL odds this week, Seattle at San Francisco and Carolina at New Orleans. 

Something has obviously been driving Carolina’s road underdog line down, despite the fact that a lot of people, as expected, are seeing value with the Saints playing back at home in the dome after a loss on the road. 

Brent addressed that issue, and then, as always, filled us in on the sharp action he has seen so far for NFL Week 14, as he did in the college segment as well.
