  • The over/under for the 2019 Texas Bowl between Oklahoma State and Texas A&M is set at 55 after a flurry of action from professional bettors (aka sharps) sent it on the move on Friday afternoon.
  • Using our proprietary tools at The Action Network, let's analyze how sharps are picking OkSt vs. Texas A&M on Friday night (6:45 p.m. ET on ESPN).

Friday’s college football bowl slate has been a very interesting one in terms of professional betting action.

Odds for each of today’s five matchups opened back on Dec. 9, but as recently as yesterday there was very little sharp action to speak of. Sure, lines have bounced back and forth a bit over the past 18 days, but nothing to indicate a consensus opinion among professional bettors.

That changed in earnest this morning when wiseguys came out of the woodwork to blitz the Military Bowl total up from 53.5 to 57.5 in the hours leading up to kickoff.

A similar formula appears to be in the works for this evening’s Texas Bowl with a flood of smart money targeting Oklahoma State vs. Texas A&M odds.

Using The Action Network’s betting tools, let’s examine how the pros are playing the Texas Bowl.

Texas Bowl: Oklahoma State vs. Texas A&M Sharp Betting Pick

The Texas Bowl total opened at 53.5 and casual bettors can’t get enough of the over.

Seventy-eight percent of tickets have landed on that side of the total, including 74% of all dollars wagered.

But it’s not just recreational bettors expecting a higher-scoring game, as sharps spent the late portion of Friday morning hammering the over as well.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track and report professional betting action in real time, have triggered two steam moves on the over today alone.

This reveals two separate instances of market-moving money from respected bettors forcing oddsmakers to make adjustments to the total. In this case, the over/under increased from 53 to 55 in the matter of hours.
