Tonight’s three MACtion matchups all opened with totals in the upper-50s. They’re also all (predictably) drawing a majority of bettors to the over, though not necessarily in equal shares.

As of Wednesday morning, the three “over percentages” stand at 59%, 63% and 68%. But only one of those backings has been enough to push its total past the 60-mark.

Our PRO Report explains why.

College Football Sharp Pick: Eastern Michigan vs. Ball State

If you guessed the 59-percenter, kudos. Although it’s been least popular of the three, the Eastern Michigan-Ball State over backing has consisted of sharp bettors, giving oddsmakers reason to react most strongly.

Sharp Action

Five Sports Insights Bet Signals, which track and record instances of market movement caused specifically by sharp action, have been triggered on the over in this matchup, with no indication of buyback as of writing.

Sharp Action edge: Over

Big Money

Also pointing toward a sharp backing of the over in this game (and giving more reason for oddsmakers to take note), the 59% of bettors on the over have generated 74% of actual money hitting the total.

That means the over is taking on much bigger bets, and while those can technically come from anyone, they’re far more likely to come from sharps, so a discrepancy such as this one serves as another pretty strong sign of smart money.
