For most bettors, a No. 3 Georgia vs. No. 2 Alabama showdown is enough to warrant a bet on its own. For sharps, though, it takes more than just a hyped-up matchup.

Specifically, it takes betting value.

Of course, there’s no rule that says a hyped-up matchup can’t also be providing betting value. And that’s what looks to be happening in Saturday’s game.

Our PRO Report feature makes it clear, so let’s take a look.

As of writing, bettors are split down the middle on this total. But even with the 50-50 distribution, the number has been bumped up by two points from 56 to 58.

Why? Because sharps are finding value on the over.

Two Sports Insights Bet Signals, which track and record instances of sharp action, have been triggered on the over — at 56.5 and 57.5 — confirming the professional activity, and convincing oddsmakers to adjust their lines.
