According to Action Labs' Bet Signals, sharps have steamed the Kent State vs. UCF under multiple times over the course of the summer, explaining why the line has dipped 4.5 points as of the time of writing.

For those wondering, steam refers to sudden, uniform line movement across the market that is often the result of bettors with the resources and respect to move odds getting down on the same wager at multiple sportsbooks, all at once.
