Oh boy is this a random college football game.
These two teams are bad. Like, really bad.
ESPN, for instance, ranks FIU as the worst college football team in the country. UConn is sixth-worst.
By all accounts, this is going to be one of the sloppiest games of college football played this year.
So, in regards to the total, does that mean there's value on the over or under?
The Action Network has a historically profitable betting algorithm that provides the answer to that question.
The algorithm indicates about 6% in value for one side of the total in this matchup. That means the pick has implied odds that are 6% higher than the odds available to you. Essentially, the line currently has a 6% discount across the market.
Over the long run, if you only bet on lines with at least a 6% betting edge, you're almost assured to make a profit. In the short term, of course, variance is a constraint.
This game is also one of the most popular college football contests of the day, as our colleague Chase Howell reported earlier today.
