Watching sharp bettors hit the college football betting board through the summer into September is a beautiful sight. And once limits go up closer to game time, it is, quite literally, game time for all of us.

Saturday’s huge Week 1 college football slate is littered with matchups in which betting odds are still flying around.

Luckily, the Action Network’s PRO Report helps to determine where sharps are positioned, especially on key numbers.

Lo and behold, the late-afternoon windows is getting smashed, particularly in the SEC.

Memphis vs. Mississippi State is catching smart money, while there’s a clear best bet on Georgia State vs. South Carolina.

*Odds as of Saturday morning

Memphis vs. Mississippi State

7:30 p.m. ET | ESPNU

Memphis and Mississippi State went under the closing total of 63 in the Tigers’ 31-29 win last year.

Although sharp money initially pushed the Week 1 number up from 55 to 57.5 in August, our PRO Report suggests that bettors play the under.

Not only is the under catching big money (98% of the loot, in fact), one of our top experts is also betting on a low-scoring game.
