Steam Games or Weak Lines?
Below we’ll isolate some of college soccer of the line movements in Week 1, focusing exclusively on FBS matchups. Let us try to ascertain whether the college soccer odds on these games are moving since the wise men”know something” or because it was a terrible line to begin with and is being exploited from the sharps.
We’ve identified three line changes because the vapor is blowing in this direction, and it’s your responsibility to choose whether to catch the group or move the other way in your college football picks, and take a number. Without further ado, let us go!
South Alabama vs Nebraska (Saturday, August 31st, 12:00 PM ET)
The Cornhuskers opened as a whopping 32-point home favorite from the South Alabama Jaguars, however that number has shrunk to as large as 36 1/2 in a number of the very best online sportsbooks.
Nebraska attracted a great deal of attention after finishing strong last season by winning four of their last six contests. Much is expected of next year coach Scott Frost and this Huskers, since his team is ranked 24th year to begin the year.
Much of this hype has delivered online spiraling up as Nebraska will look to prove worthy of the billing by stomping a tin can like South Alabama.
South Carolina vs North Carolina (Saturday, August 31st, 3:30 PM ET)
As 7 1/2 point favorites started but that amount has shrunk to as high as 11 in lots of the books that were offshore. First of All, this game is not being played at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill but in a site, the Bank of America Stadium.
Just as a team is right of this”vs” does not necessarily mean they’re at home and it takes the public a couple of days to figure out that. Furthermore, South Carolina has possessed this rivalry moving 6-1 ATS in their last seven neutral site matches, as well as winning six of the past seven encounters against the Tar Heels.
This document is in stark contrast to the 1-5 ATS indicate in neutral-site events of North Carolina. The sharps also offers a whiff of this claws 0-4 ATS record so it is little wonder why the’Cocks are receiving heavy play here.
Duke vs Alabama (Saturday, August 31st, 3:30 PM ET)
Expectations for Nick Saban’s crew are constantly through the roof and this season is no different. The Crimson Tide embarks on which should be another championship ship this year and the first casualty will be the Duke Blue Devils.
The oddsmakers understand the hype train which follows Tide football which is why they crushed Temple in the Independence Bowl and installed them final year since a house favorite from a team in Duke that moved 8-5.
Sure, Duke was no competition, nor are they this year, but winning it convincingly and getting into a bowl game has to account for something, right? Well, not in the world of the squares that never saw a number large enough to prevent them.
As of this writing, Alabama has become a 33 1/2 point preferred despite the fact that their celebrity junior linebacker, will probably be out for the season and Dylan Moses, hurt his knee. The reduction of the Tide’s defensive captain didn’t make a whit of difference to the general public, that will toss their money to the fire!
