  • Virginia is a 7-point home favorite against Pittsburgh for Friday's Week 10 college football matchup (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2).
  • The over/under is currently listed between 46.5 and 47.5 depending on the sportsbook.
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how professional money is coming down on this ACC matchup.

Week 10’s marquee college football matchup between Alabama and LSU doesn’t kickoff until 8 p.m. ET on Saturday, but bettors are getting down on plenty of games in the mean time.

In fact, according to The Action Network’s public betting data, both sharp and recreational bettors are playing Friday night’s three-game schedule.

While tonight’s matchups are attracting solid betting handles overall, sharps have keyed in on the Pittsburgh-Virginia (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2) game as the one offering value.

Using our proprietary betting tools, we break down how professional money is shaping the line for this ACC contest.

BookMaker opened the Pittsburgh-Virginia total at 50.5 and 63% of tickets have come in on the over. While the majority of bettors are expecting a higher-scoring game, 51% of dollars wagered have instead come down on the under.

With bigger bets backing the under, the total has dropped to 46.5 at BookMaker.

According to Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, the money hitting the under is also coming from respected bettors.

A Steam Move at CRIS was triggered on the under earlier this week, confirming that sharp money is responsible for the over/under movement.

Based on our data, recreational bettors are hoping for points while wiseguys expect a lower-scoring game.
