- Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how professional money has forced oddsmakers to finally adjust this over/under.
In The Action Network’s Friday Sharp Report, Danny Donahue mentioned that the over/under for the Pac-12 Championship Game between Utah and Washington had yet to attract significant action.
In fact, according to our college football public betting data, 52% of dollars wagered on the total have taken the over, suggesting that sportsbooks are taking balanced action and had no reason to adjust the total.
Well, with gameday limits now available, professionals made their play on the Utah-Washington total shortly after 11 a.m. ET on Friday.
Using The Action Network’s proprietary betting tools, let’s analyze how sharp money forced oddsmakers to finally adjust this over/under.
The Utah-Washington total opened between 44 and 44.5 at market-setting sportsbooks and as mentioned above, dollars wagered on the over/under remained balanced throughout most of the week.
As of Friday morning, the number had settled in at 44.5 across the market, but at approximately 11:10 a.m. ET, wiseguys made their move.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals — which track and report professional betting action in real-time — triggered a Steam Move at under 44.5, revealing that a wave of sharp money flooding the market, forcing oddsmakers to drop the total to the current consensus of 43.5.
The question now: Are the wiseguys done, or is there more money out there waiting to make a play?
