  • Before placing your bowl game bets for Monday, you might want to know which bets sharps are making.
  • Sharps are bettors with long track records of consistent success.
  • Their favorite Monday plays include a bet on the Gator Bowl between NC State and Texas A&M.

It’s not New Year’s Eve without some bowl game action, and sharps aren’t missing out on the party.

Monday features a five-game college football slate, with games kicking off from noon to 7:30 p.m. ET.

Of those five games on tap today, three have attracted significant one-sided action from wiseguys. Let’s take a look.

Sun Bowl: Pittsburgh vs. Stanford

2 p.m. ET | CBS | El Paso, TX

Sharp angle: Pittsburgh (moved from +6.5 to +3.5)

Despite a majority of bettors on Stanford, this line has moved away from the Cardinal thanks to sharp action on Pitt.

Forty-three percent of bets accounting for 61% of actual dollars are behind the Panthers, meaning bigger, probably sharper bettors are taking the points. That’s helped to drop this line from +6.5 to +3.5, passing through the key numbers of 4 and 6.

A Sports Insights Bet Signal was also triggered on Pitt at +5.5, serving as confirmation that sharps are playing the underdog.

Liberty Bowl: Missouri vs. Oklahoma State

3:45 p.m. ET | ESPN | Memphis, TN
