  • Late money is pounding the spread for today's Potato Bowl (3:30 p.m. ET) matchup between Ohio and Nevada.
  • Using The Action Network's college football betting trends, we detail how one-sided action is moving this line.

In what is becoming a pattern this bowl season, bettors waited until the hours leading up to kickoff — when limits are highest — to take a position on the spread for Friday’s Potato Bowl between Ohio and Nevada.

And not only is the money hitting the same side of this game, it sent betting odds skyrocketing since just this morning.

Using The Action Network’s betting tools, let’s examine Ohio vs. Nevada odds and betting trends and how late money is forcing oddsmakers to significantly adjust the Potato Bowl spread.

Ohio vs. Nevada Odds, Betting Trends: Potato Bowl Spread

The spread for today’s matchup opened at Ohio -6.5 back on Dec. 8 and 79% of bettors are laying the points with the Bobcats.

And while spread tickets are an important piece of data, The Action Network’s real money percentages tell the full story of how this game is being bet.

Eighty-four percent of dollars wagered are also on Ohio, providing a clear reason as to why oddsmakers have adjusted this number up to -10.

In fact, this line has popped from Bobcats -7.5 as recently as this morning to the current line, which tells us that the Ohio money is so overwhelming that oddsmakers have continued to push the spread to 10.

The key question now surrounds whether buyback finally shows up to grab Nevada at the important number of +10.
