  • Texas Tech opened as 4-point road favorites for Saturday's college football Week 12 matchup with Kansas State (3:30 p.m. ET, ESPNU).
  • According to The Action Network's betting tools, both sharp and recreational bettors are finding value on the same side of this point spread.

College football’s Week 11 slate isn’t the sexiest of the 2018 season, but there are still plenty of opportunities for bettors to find value.

In fact, both sharp and recreational bettors are in agreement regarding Saturday’s matchup between Texas Tech and Kansas State (3:30 p.m. ET, ESPNU).

According to The Action Network’s college football live odds page, the Red Raiders opened as 4-point road favorites against the Wildcats.

Bettors are overwhelmingly backing the favorites, as 85% of spread tickets and 96% of real money wagered are laying the points.

Not only are the majority of bettors taking Texas Tech, but professionals are also jumping on the Red Raiders.

According to Sports Insights’ Bet Signals — which track and report professional betting action in real-time — wiseguys steamed Texas Tech late Monday morning at -4, helping move this line to the current number of -6.

Steam refers to sudden, uniform line movement across the entire sports betting market that is often the result of sharps betting the same side of a game at multiple sportsbooks, all at once.

While still early, Saturday’s forecast is calling for steady 16 mph winds and temperatures below 40 degrees throughout this game.

All bettors, especially those eyeing the current over/under of 57, should be sure to continue monitoring the weather as the weekend approaches.
