Pros Betting Georgia Tech-Virginia Tech, Two Other Thursday Night Games

Oct 25, 2018 4:50 PM EDT
  • Wiseguys are betting three College Football games on Thursday, headlined by Georgia Tech-Virginia Tech (7:30 p.m. ET).
  • Virginia Tech is listed as a 3.5-point favorite with an over/under of 58.5.
  • Pros are also getting down on Toledo-Western Michigan and Ball State-Ohio (both at 7 p.m. ET).

October is arguably the best month of the year for sports bettors. With so many different sports being played all at once, the action never ends. Tonight is a perfect example.

We have Dolphins-Texans, four NBA games and a stacked NHL slate. But when it comes to wiseguy smart money, they all take a back seat to Thursday night college football.

After analyzing Thursday’s five-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed three NCAAF bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. ET.

Betting Terms to Know

Steam Move: Sudden, drastic and uniform line movement across the market caused by an overload of sharp action from respected players.

Reverse Line Movement: When the betting line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. It’s a top smart money indicator.

Line Freeze: When one side is getting heavy betting, but the line won’t budge, indicating sharp liability on the other side.

Juice: The tax or commission that bettors must pay sportsbooks in order for them to accept your wager. A -115 juice means a bettor would have to wager $115 to win $100.
