  • Wyoming opened as a 5-point favorite in Saturday's season opener (10 p.m. ET) against New Mexico State.
  • Since this matchup opened back in May, sharp bettors have had plenty of time to analyze the game and find betting value.
  • Using The Action Network's proprietary betting tools, we reveal how professional bettors are approaching this game.

The goal of this column has always been to identify the sides and over/unders attracting attention from the sharpest bettors who have the resources to move lines across the sports betting market.

With basketball and baseball lines typically opening on the previous day, Wake and Rake has normally posted the morning of the game it previews.

However, since football lines are available for almost a full week before a game, pigskin-focused Wake and Rakes will frequently publish days in advance since that’s when early action is coming down.

In the special case of season openers, professionals have had an entire summer to analyze the matchups in order to pick apart soft lines opened early by bookmakers.

In fact, Pinnacle opened the line for Saturday’s Wyoming-New Mexico State (10 p.m. ET) game on May 30, meaning bettors have been able to jump on this matchup for almost three months, and that’s exactly what sharp bettors are doing.
