  • Boise State is a 20-point road favorite in Friday night's matchup with New Mexico (9 p.m. ET, CBS Sports).
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how both sharp and recreational bettors are playing this game.

I try to discuss common myths when it comes to sharp and public sports bettors as often as possible. For example, not every game has a “sharp side.” And, in turn, not every game has a “public side.”

In addition, professional and recreational bettors don’t always have to disagree. There are plenty of situations where sharp and public money is betting the same side of a game.

However, tonight’s Boise State-New Mexico matchup (9 p.m. ET, CBS Sports) fits the sharps vs. squares narrative to a T.

Public bettors are overwhelmingly loading up on one side, while wiseguys are consistently buying back value with the other.

Using The Action Network’s betting tools, I broke down how sharps and squares are betting this Friday night college football matchup.
