- We examine how smart money is moving this spread.
Along with food, family and friends, football is ingrained as a Thanksgiving institution. However, most fans immediately think about the NFL, which offers an all-day, three-game slate.
However, college football also gives us the 2019 edition of the Egg Bowl — the annual rivalry game between Ole Miss and Mississippi State.
It’s no secret that professional football will dominate in terms of betting handle, but that doesn’t mean tonight’s Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State matchup isn’t offering value.
And remember, winning tickets on the Egg Bowl pay just the same as those on any of today’s Thanksgiving NFL matchups, so wiseguys have no issues getting down on college if that’s where the value lies.
With this in mind, let’s look at how the pros are betting the Egg Bowl, and specifically how this smart money is moving the Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State spread.
