  • Late sharp action has caused a line move in tonight's game between Alabama and LSU.
  • A Sports Insights Bet Signal reveals which way the sharp money is going.

The line for tonight’s game between No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 LSU has been right around two touchdowns all week long. While it’s never reached lower than 13.5 nor higher than 14.5, it’s fluctuated back and forth on multiple occasions.

At The Action Network, we’ve been tracking every line move, the most recent of which has been significant, as it was a result of sharp money.

Earlier today, Alabama was once again moved from -14 to -14.5, which is where the line sat for most of the day Saturday. But late this afternoon, a Sports Insights Bet Signal hit the Tigers, causing the line to fall back to the key number of +14.

Bet signals get triggered whenever a sportsbook receives a sharp wager that results in a market-wide line shift. And in tonight’s game, they’ve been hitting both sides depending on the line.

At the time of writing, Alabama has drawn two signals at -14, and LSU has drawn four — including the latest one — at +14.5.
