  • Thursday's Boston College (-5.5) at Wake Forest matchup is attracting significant attention from professional bettors.
  • With Hurricane Florence heading toward North Carolina, kickoff was moved up to 5:30 p.m. ET in an attempt to beat the weather.
  • Wiseguys are now confident enough in the bad weather to get down their action, and the betting line has revealed what they like.

For the second time in three weeks, sharp bettors are eyeing a Wake Forest college football game as one offering betting value.

From a betting market perspective, Week 3 has been very unique with Hurricane Florence bearing down on the coasts of North and South Carolina, sending betting lines all over the place based on the most recent forecasts.

Because of this, there aren’t many games with the traditional one-sided professional action that we look for with Wake and Rake, due to lines bouncing back and forth throughout the week.

However, by digging into line movement from the last few days, we can identify how these matchups are being bet, especially by leaning on the most recent line data as the hurricane’s path becomes more clear.

After doing this, I’ve pinpointed Thursday’s Boston College-Wake Forest (5:30 p.m.) game as one attracting sneaky wiseguy action.
