For bettors, the return of weeknight MACtion is certainly a welcome sight. And the same is true for sharps. More games means more opportunities to find value, and it appears that they’ve found some on one of tonight’s first kicks.
Kent State is a 4-point home favorite over Eastern Michigan, and as of writing this total sits at 66.5 — the highest mark of the night. According to our PRO Report, that latter number has also been the most affected by sharp betting on tonight’s slate.

College Football Sharp Pick: Eastern Michigan vs. Kent State
Big bets from sharps have been landing on the over in this one, and the total has made a significant shift as a result.
Early openers for this game were down at 61.5, so the five-point line move in itself is a decent indication that sharps are backing the over. And Sports Insights Bet Signals have confirmed that to be the case.
Four signals in the form of steam moves have been triggered on the over since this line opened. Steam refers to a sudden, market-wide line move that comes when a heavy dose of money hits the same side of a bet over a very short period of time, and is a strong indication of sharp action.
Sharp Action edge: Over
Making the sharp side even more clear has been the discrepancy between the percentage of bets and money landing on the over. Fifty-nine percent of bettors are backing the over — which isn’t too surprising: Most bettors prefer to root for offense — but they’re generating a significantly higher percentage of actual money (79%).
That means not only is the over attracting more bettors, it’s attracting bigger ones too. And which bettors are more likely to be the higher spenders?
