  • Late sharp action has hit tonight's Boca Raton Bowl (7 p.m. ET, ESPN) between UAB and Northern Illinois.
  • A Sports Insights Bet Signal has revealed the sharp play.

For the past two weeks or so, the line movement for tonight’s Boca Raton Bowl has been anything but exciting. Until late last night, the UAB Blazers hadn’t budged from a 2.5-point favorite for about 12 days.

Overnight, the Blazers fell to -2, but by the morning they were right back at +2.5.

With the line so close to a key number, surely some NIU bettors — and perhaps the sharper ones — were hoping for +3 before placing their bets. But as game day rolled around with still no sign that books would be granting them a field goal, the question became whether or not those potential sharp bettors would still be willing to pull the trigger.

Late this afternoon, we got our answer.
