  • Sharp bettors are doubling down on the Sun Bowl (2 p.m. ET, CBS) spread and over/under.
  • We examine how pros are betting Tuesday's Florida State vs. Arizona State college football bowl matchup.

Odds for the 2019-2020 college football bowl season opened three weeks ago, giving bettors plenty of time analyze each matchup before making a play.

But even with so much time, casual bettors typically wait until right before game day to actually place a wager. Ticket counts are still relatively low for Tuesday’s games, including the Sun Bowl between Florida State and Arizona State.

Of course, a flood of recreational betting action will eventually show up for all of tomorrow’s bowl games, especially considering it’s New Year’s Eve.


Odds as of Monday at 11 a.m. ET and via PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150). No strings attached. No rollover required.


On the other hand, sharps take in the entire bowl slate and pick off whichever matchups are offering value. And in the case of the Sun Bowl, professional bettors have taken positions on the Florida State vs. Arizona spread and over/under.

When it comes to the Sun Bowl spread, The Action Network’s public betting data provides most of what we need to know.

Just 29% of tickets have taken the Seminoles and the points, but those wagers make up 51% of all money hitting this spread. This reveals that the bigger bets have been landing on Florida State.

In addition, Sports Insights’ Bet Signals confirm that the 51% of money is also coming from respected bettors, evidenced by five smart money moves on the Seminoles.

With large wagers from sharps steadily flowing on the same side, oddsmakers have adjusted from +6 down to +4.

Wiseguys have also taken a liking to the Florida State vs. Arizona State total, including a whopping 93% of dollars falling on the under.

Again, SI’s Bet Signals are reporting three Steam Moves on the under, marking three unique instances in which sudden action from respected bettors forced market-wide adjustments to this line.
