What was intended to be a three-game Friday night slate has been filtered down to just a single college football matchup. But don’t be fooled by the lack of Power 5 names; it’s a good one. And more importantly, it’s one that’s offering betting value.

Through sharp action and a historically profitable system match, our PRO Report feature details exactly how we know that.

Note: Data as of Friday morning.

There’s more early CFB sharp action this weekend…

The pros are on the same side as history in thinking this spread is still too high, even though it’s a small number.

Sharp Action

While they’ve attracted only 43% of bettors, the Cajuns have fallen from +3.5 to +2.5 as of writing. And given the importance of moving through the number 3, that’s typically not going to happen unless sharps are among the minority mix.

Sure enough, Sports Insights Bet Signals have confirmed four cases of sharp money landing on the underdog since this line opened, convincing oddsmakers to make the adjustment.

Sharp Action edge: Louisiana

PRO Systems

On the road against a conference opponent for the second straight week, Louisiana falls into a spot that’s historically been undervalued.

In fact, our “Road Streak” PRO System — based on those criteria — has returned a 61% win rate (against the spread) for such teams since 2005, on a sample of more than 350 games.
