UAB vs. Jacksonville State Pick
Because Jacksonville State is an FCS program, odds for this college football matchup haven’t been available for long. However, that hasn’t stopped wiseguys from taking a clear position on the spread.
After UAB opened as a 14.5-point favorite over Jacksonville State at BetMGM, our tools have tracked three separate moves of sharp action hitting the Blazers, so it’s no surprise to see this spread up to a consensus of 16.5 across the market.
In fact, The Action Network’s public betting data is also showing 60% of the money backing the Blazers on just 43% of the tickets (click here to see betting percentages for every college football Week 1 matchup).
We refer these situations as “bets-vs.-dollars discrepancies” and they typically occur when one side of a given matchup is garnering bigger bets than the other, evidenced by significantly more money on a smaller percentage of actual tickets.
