This past weekend was one of the best of the year for sports bettors, including two standalone NFL Divisional Round playoff games on Saturday, two more on Sunday, followed by the college football National Championship game between Clemson and LSU tonight.

And while I’m not suggesting that college football takes a back seat to the NFL, bettors focusing on the weekend’s playoff matchups can temporarily ignore college football until Monday rolls around.

As a result, it’s easy for the public to miss significant, market-moving action while looking the other way, and that’s exactly what happened.

Clemson vs. LSU Odds, Sharp Betting Pick

The Clemson vs. LSU total opened at 68.5 and climbed to 69.5 as recently as late Saturday morning, and that’s when the wiseguys struck.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals are reporting a Steam Move at under 69.5 over the weekend, coinciding with the line movement to 68.5 and now all the way down to 67.5.

This tells us that an influx of under action from respected bettors hit the market within a very short period of time, forcing oddsmakers to move off the inflated 69.5 and back toward the opener.

Sharp angle: Under (moved from 69.5 to 67.5)
