  • College football Week 8 odds and public betting data are now available.
  • We examine how sharps are quietly betting one of the smallest college football Week 8 matchups.

Savvy bettors like small college football matchups.

Why? Because low-profile games can offer soft opening lines due to a lack of familiarity, information or even because the tiny overall betting handle, compared to the week’s more popular matchups, doesn’t justify as much attention from sportsbooks.

Value is value, and whether you find it on a nationally-televised game between two Power 5 schools or in one played in an empty stadium, winning bets pay just the same.
