- Sharp action is moving both the spread and over/under for Thursday night's Gator Bowl (7 p.m. ET, ESPN).
- Learn about which Tennessee vs. Indiana bets the pros are making.
Both of today’s college football bowl games are experiencing significant adjustments to the totals.
Thursday’s first matchup — the Birmingham Bowl between Boston College and Cincinnati — will be played in extremely poor weather conditions, so it’s no surprise to see that over/under falling.
However, the Tennessee vs. Indiana total for tonight’s Gator Bowl has gone in the other direction since opening. In addition, late action has also driven the spread through a key betting number for the first time since odds opened.
Odds as of Thursday at 2:30 p.m. ET and via PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150). No strings attached. No rollover required.

Gator Bowl Sharp Betting Pick: Tennessee vs. Indiana
Recreational bettors have been hammering the Tennessee vs. Indiana over since Gator Bowl odds opened, evidenced by the 77% of tickets on that side of the total.
Sharps are in full agreement, as 85% of all money wagered on the total has hit the over as well.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals have triggered five smart money indicators on the over, confirming that it’s a combination of sharp and public action landing on this over.
Oddsmakers have reacted by making major adjustments to this total, pushing it from an opener of 49.5 up to 55.
Late money is also hammering Tennessee in the hours leading up to kickoff. The Vols sat as 2.5-point favorites as recently as 11:15 a.m. ET today, but that number has been pounded through -3 — the most important number in football betting — and up to -3.5.
SI’s Bet Signals are reporting two Steam Moves on the Vols today alone, explaining the reasoning behind the spread adjustment.
