Sharps Taking Advantage of Early LSU-Florida Betting Line Value

Oct 01, 2018 4:35 PM EDT
  • LSU opened as a 3-point road favorite for Saturday's SEC showdown with Florida.
  • According to The Action Network's betting tools, sharps have jumped on this game early and often, moving the line considerably.

It’s been a busy start to the week for college football line movement, highlighted by professionals taking advantage of the key number set for Saturday’s Red River Rivalry game between Oklahoma and Texas (12 p.m.  ET).

Sharps have continued picking apart lines for Week 6’s marquee matchups, including LSU-Florida (3:30 p.m. ET).

LSU opened as a 3-point favorite at Pinnacle, and the line has reached -3.5 multiple times over the past 12 hours. But each time that the market offered +3.5, professional money showed up to take Florida and kick the spread back down to +3.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals have already triggered four total moves on Florida at +3.5, which makes sense considering the value with the Gators off the key number of three.

But sharps weren’t done there. At 3:06 p.m. ET, professionals once again steamed Florida — this time at +3 — driving the line down to +2 across the sports betting market.

Just because the +3.5 spreads were gone didn’t stop wiseguys from continuing to grab every +3 available as well.

The Action Network’s public betting data tells a similar story as 59% of tickets wagered on the spread are taking LSU, yet 68% of real money bet on this game has come down on Florida.

There’s still plenty of time for the college football Week 6 betting market to mature, but there’s no doubt that professional money is responsible for the significant LSU-Florida line movement.
