  • Late money is hammering the over/under for today's Citrus Bowl (1 p.m. ET, ABC) between Michigan and Alabama.
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we examine how sharps are betting this college football bowl matchup.

Casual bettors can’t get enough of today’s Citrus Bowl between Michigan and Alabama.

More specifically, bettors are jumping at the opportunity to lay the points with the Crimson Tide in a bowl game that will have no effect on the eventual national champion.

With just under two hours until kickoff, an incredible 78% of all spread bets are taking Nick Saban’s squad.

That means Alabama is currently in contention to become the most popular bowl bet ever tracked by our Bet Labs software, needing to eclipse the 79% of tickets Western Kentucky received against Central Michigan in the 2014 Bahamas Bowl.

Odds as of Wednesday at 12:15 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.

Recreational bettors are clearly pounding Alabama, but sharps are taking a big position on the Citrus Bowl over/under.

Here’s how money from professional bettors is moving the Michigan vs. Alabama over/under just hours ahead of kickoff.

Not only is the public laying the points with the Tide, but they’re also hammering the over.

Eighty-one percent of bets have hit that side of the total, and sharps are in full agreement.

As recently as 10:50 p.m. ET yesterday this number sat at 58.5. Thanks to an influx of wiseguy action, this total has climbed to 60.5 and even to 61 at many sportsbooks across the market.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals are reporting three Steam Moves on the over today alone, leaving no doubt as to why this number has skyrocketed in the hours leading up to kickoff.
