- Betting odds for college football's Week 2 matchups are now posted.
- We detail one under-the-radar game already attracting attention from sharp bettors.
The first full football weekend of 2019 is this weekend, when the NFL regular season begins.
With so many games on the schedule, oddsmakers are spread thin due to the sheer volume of football matchups, especially early in the season when sportsbooks still don’t truly know who these teams really are.
This provides an irresistible opportunity for sharp bettors to pick off soft numbers, specifically for the smaller college football matchups.
And looking ahead to this week’s college football Week 2 slate, professionals are already forcing oddsmakers to make adjustments to one under-the-radar contest.
Saturday’s Western Kentucky-Florida International game isn’t going to draw much attention from casual bettors, but sharps have already taken an early side.
Oddsmakers opened FIU as an 8.5-point home favorite, but professionals see value with the road underdog.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals have triggered seven (!) moves on the Hilltoppers at lines ranging from +9 to +8.5, pinpointing specific instances of when wiseguys hit WKU.
This one-sided action has kicked the line down to Western Kentucky +7.5 across the market.
It’ll now be important to monitor whether this number eventually hits 7 and, if so, how bettors react.
A move from 8.5 to 7.5 is certainly noteworthy, but because 7 is such a common margin of victory in football, that might signal the correct time to buy back the Panthers.
