  • After early sharp action jumped on LSU, professionals bet Alabama on Tuesday afternoon.
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze the early week Alabama-LSU line movement.

Both recreational and sharp bettors jumped on Saturday’s Alabama-LSU (8 p.m. ET on CBS) showdown immediately after opening, driving an already massive handle for this high-profile matchup.

In early betting, sharps waited for LSU to drift to +14.5 before jumping in and kicking the line back to a market consensus of Bama -14.

On Tuesday, professional money bought back Alabama at -14, setting up two-way sharp action as of Wednesday morning.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals — which track professional betting action across the market — triggered a Steam Move at Pinnacle shortly after 1 p.m. ET Tuesday at Crimson Tide -14.

Pinnacle is a market-setting sportsbook that accepts high-limit wagers from sharp bettors. In response, the rest of the market quickly followed and adjusted up to Alabama -14.5.

According to The Action Network’s public betting data, 59% of tickets and 60% of dollars wagered on the spread are laying the points with the Crimson Tide.

The key question is whether this recent flow of Alabama money continues or if wiseguys on both sides continue to ping-pong this line back and forth through the important number of 14.
