All the daily line moves in the NFL and the bowl games. Check how lines are shifting & check if it's the right timing to make your sports picks before the public jumps in.

College Football
209 Arkansas State/210 Louisiana Tech- Nothing serious yet, but seeing a little La Tech money staring to show from sharp players. They are still -1.5 and -2 at sportsbooks, but a game to keep an eye on.

271 Mississippi/272 Oklahoma State- Staring to see some sharp money come in on Mississippi- Another game to keep an eye on. Ole Miss lost a few close games this season but many handicappers still have them rated very highly.

 

NFL
101 Vikings/ 102 Cardinals- Big move on the Cardinals today. They have gone from -7.5 to -10.5 on the college football odds board. Lots of injuries for the Vikings. The public is on the Cards, but plenty of sharp money, too.

 

115 Lions/116 Rams- Strong move on the Lions today. The game was sitting at Rams -1 or pick, but all the money on the Lions took it up to Lions -2 or -2.5.

 

125 Patriots/126 Texans- Some money showing on the Pats. Lots of public money on that side already but no sharp money getting in the way of this. Despite all the injuries it is hard to see the Pats losing 3 games in a row. However, reading the injury reports there is still a lot of problems with the Pats and their current roster. It is tough to anticipate Bill Belichick sometimes, but he is a coach that would clearly have his eyes set on the bigger prize of a Super Bowl rather than winning a few extra regular season games. He is one of the few coaches that could afford to lose a few games in order to make sure his roster is in tact for the playoff run.

 

131 Seahawks/132 Ravens- Seahawks got posted today at -10 NFL odds. Ravens QB Matt Schaub is possible to play, but it looks as if Jimmy Clausen will get the nod. Public and sharp players have been impressed with the Seahawks, especially lately. The word on Russell Wilson was to let him sit in the pocket and force him to pass rather than blitzing him and allowing him to beat you with his legs. That strategy clearly has not worked. Wilson has lit it up from the pocket in the last month. According to ESPN in the past 3 weeks Wilson has 11 touchdown passes, zero interceptions and a QBR of 93.6. He has completed 85% of his passes inside the pocket for 810 yards and 10 touchdowns. Yeah, I’d say he’s playing pretty darn good football.
