If you’ve been a reader of Action Network PRO content, you’re probably going to throw a shoe at me when you see this, but it bears repeating: Winning bets on a day’s lowest-profile games pay just the same as winners on nationally-televised, power-conference matchups.

For example, it’s reasonable to assume that Thursday night’s Central Michigan vs. Oklahoma State (FS1), West Virginia vs. Pittsburgh (ESPN) and Penn State vs. Purdue (FOX) college football matchups will not only draw the most viewers but also land the most betting action.

Recreational bettors enjoy “sweating” their wagers, but it’s hard to sweat a game if it’s not easily accessible on TV.

With this in mind, it’s very unlikely that the majority of bettors are jonesing to get down on Akron vs. St. Francis on Thursday night.

However, professional bettors have already, and very quietly, taken market-moving positions on the Akron vs. St. Francis spread and over/under.

Using our college football PRO picks and predictions, let’s examine the Akron vs. St. Francis bets that the sharps are making.
