A pair of Thursday night college football matchups is welcome sight for sports bettors, but while the 6 p.m. ET Louisiana Tech-North Texas game may rank second of the pair in terms of piquing interest, sharps would tell you not to ignore it. And our experts would agree.
Both have taken a liking to the same side of this Conference USA battle, and oddsmakers have been adjusting their lines significant as a result.

College Football Pick: Louisiana Tech vs. North Texas
Sharps and big bettors — who are likely one and the same — have landed on the home underdog North Texas, and our college football experts are right there with them, driving this line well inside a field goal.
Depending where you look, it’s possible to be seeing either side of this game favored as of Thursday morning. That certainly wasn’t always the case, though.
And given that 3 is the most important number in football betting, seeing a line move from above to below it almost always suggests that sharps are playing at least a slight role, which is especially true when the line movement comes in the direction of a side getting the minority of bets.
To confirm the pro action, Sports Insights Bet Signals have been triggered 10 times on North Texas, illustrating eight separate waves of market movement caused specifically by activity from sharps. The two most recent signals even came inside the key number of +3.
Sharp Action edge: North Texas
Also giving oddsmakers reason to move this number: the 42% of bettors on the Mean Green have generated an impressive 59% of actual money hitting the spread. Of course, that’s a monetary liability that will catch sportsbooks’ attention in any case, but in this one it also provides further indication of the sharp side.
Since sharps are more likely to be the ones making bigger bets, the discrepancy between the percentage of bets and money on North Texas is another strong indication of professional action.
Big Money edge: North Texas
Sharps aren’t the only ones backing the short dog in this game, either. Three of our college football experts have also bet the Mean Green as of writing.
