Betting Brunch: Sharp Money Moving a College Hoops Total

Yesterday, my reputation was put on the line when I was called up from the minors to write Wake and Rake. Clearly, the breakfast hour is not my forte because it lost. #PrayforMarkyMoney’sReputation
The brunch hour is more of my thing, anyway. I’m not a morning person nor a breakfast guy. This brunch hour, college bettors were targeting a total and pushing the line down, down like Fall Out Boy.
Last night, the total in the Texas A&M/Georgia game opened at 138, and had risen to 138.5 at Bookmaker before the clock struck midnight.
That number remained stagnant overnight and in the wee hours of the morning. In fact, folks over on the west coast were waking up to that number.
However, between 9 and 10 a.m. ET, bets started pouring in on the under. With more than 60% of bets and 80% of dollars on the under, the total dropped from 138.5 to 136.
There was also a steam move triggered at BetUS on under 137.5. While this book isn’t the sharpest, this particular bet signal is up almost 17 units on the season.
This will be the first meeting between these two teams this season. Unders have gone 15-10 in Georgia’s games this season, but just 12-14 for Texas A&M.
