Sports Marketwatch – NCAA Week 14
Recapping Week 13
Last week, Idaho used a strong second half to keep their game against Fresno State close, beating the 10.5-point spread. The Vandals trailed 13-3 heading into the fourth quarter, but outscored the Bulldogs 17-10 the rest of the way, ultimately losing by three, but scoring a victory for Marketwatch.
Overall Record = 13-12 (52%)
The goal of this weekly column is to highlight games that offer true “line value.” Often, if a line looks too go to be true, there is a reason. You’ll occasionally need the worst teams on the board to come through. We typically buy on bad news and sell on good.
NCAA Football Sports Marketwatch Week 14 – Game to Watch
San Jose State vs. Idaho (12/3 – 5:00 p.m. ET)
San Jose State’s woes continued last week, as the Spartans committed seven penalties and four turnovers in a 45-38 loss to Louisiana Tech.
As mentioned in the recap above, Idaho kept it close in their last game, losing 23-20 to Fresno State.
Idaho opened as a 13-point favorite at Olympic and is currently receiving 81% of spread bets and 75% of moneyline wagers. These lopsided betting percentages have pushed the line to -13.5 at many sportsbooks across the sports marketplace, with a good number moving to -14.
San Jose State +14
