UCF vs. East Carolina Sharp Betting Report
While I can’t confirm whether they’re in their right mind, I can confirm that sharps have been betting on the equivalent of 11 touchdowns being scored in this game.
In fact, they’ve been so adamant that this total has risen all the way from 72 to reach — and surpass — that 11-touchdown mark, even though the majority of bettors have been backing the under.
One reason for that? The majority of actual money has landed on the over.
Check out our new NCAAF PRO Report, where we highlight factors that provide betting edges — like large wagers, historically profitable betting systems, model projections and expert picks — that when combined with sharp money can powerfully detail the smartest bets on a given slate.
The 38% of bets on the over have generated 65% of the loot, and while that certainly creates somewhat of a monetary liability, it more importantly reveals the opinions of big bettors — the ones more likely to be sharps.
Confirming the pro action, five Sports Insights Bet Signals have been triggered on the over, indicating five instances of market-moving action from sharp bettors.
Most recently, they hit a total of 76.5 in the overnight hours, sending us to the current listing.
