- In the final hour before kick, sharp action caused oddsmakers to move tonight's Western Michigan vs. Ohio point spread.
The point spread for tonight’s Western Michigan vs. Ohio MACtion matchup (6:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2) has been a pretty stagnant one throughout the day. While it seemed as though Ohio was drawing at least some sharper action — based on Sports Insights Bet Signals and a bet vs. money discrepancy — oddsmakers weren’t willing to budge on their line of Western Michigan -1 for most of the day.
That finally changed with about 40 minutes until kickoff.

Another SI Bet Signal in the form of a steam move hit Ohio around 5:51 p.m. ET, and it resulted in a flip from a minus sign to a plus sign for Western Michigan. At some books, the line has even moved a bit further to Ohio -1.5.
Steam refers to an overload of sharp action hitting the market, usually across several different books, over a short period of time, and results in a market-wide line move, just as this one did.
Ohio has generated 53% of money in this game on just 37% of bets, another sign that sharps are on the Bobcats, as bigger bets are likely coming from them.
