  • Sharp bettors are quietly playing Tuesday night's college football matchup between Miami Ohio and Buffalo (8 p.m. ET on ESPN2).
  • Using The Action Network's betting data, we analyze how professionals are betting this game.

Tuesday’s Miami Ohio-Buffalo (8 p.m. ET on ESPN2) matchup would be overlooked by most bettors on a traditional 50-game Saturday slate, but is on pace to be the most heavily bet game across all sports tonight.

This game has generated more than twice as many bets as the top NBA game of the night and close to the same amount as the entire NHL slate combined.

And of those bets, a heavy majority is landing on Buffalo.

The Bulls have picked up 71% of tickets at the time of writing. Those tickets, however, have accounted for only 58% of dollars wagered.

Of course, that means that bigger bets must be coming on Miami Ohio, and bigger bets are more likely to be coming from sharper players.

Another telling sign of sharp action is the line movement, or in this case, the lack thereof.

Most books are holding onto their opening number (+7) despite the majority of bets on Buffalo.

BookMaker, arguably the sharpest offshore sportsbook, has already made the move to Miami Ohio +6.5, signaling the rest of the market may soon follow.
