Much like last week’s Friday night Big Ten appetizer, tonight’s Minnesota vs. Maryland matchup brings us a spread in the three-touchdown range — as of writing, Minnesota is a 20-point road favorite.
But unlike last week’s, this spread is catching the eye of sharp bettors. As our PRO Report makes apparent, sharps are all over one side of this lofty number.
Let’s take a look.
College Football Sharp Pick: Minnesota vs. Maryland
After an initial push from its opening line of +17.5, Maryland is now listed at a price that sharps — along with our projections and experts — deem valuable.
Through specific forms of line movement, Sports Insights Bet Signals have confirmed five separate instances of pro money hitting Maryland, all five of which came after the spread had reached +20 or higher.
Sharp Action edge: Maryland
Perhaps the reason sharps weren’t quick to jump on Maryland is that their projection for this game is similar to that of our model’s (compiled by Collin Wilson).
He pegs Maryland at +15, which wouldn’t provide a ton of value at the opening number, but certainly opens up a betting opportunity at the current line.
