College Football Betting Trends – Boise State vs. Toledo

Boise State opened as a 17.5 point favorite at Pinnacle and, according to Sports Insights’ College Football Betting Trends, is currently receiving 72% of all spread bets. That lopsided betting percentage has shifted the Pinnacle line 2.5 points to -20. In fact, after a survey of the marketplace we see that the spread varies between -19.5 (-110) at Olympic and actually reaches a key number with -21 (-105) at Bodog.

While most books (such as the market setting CRIS) have their line set at -20 (-110), there are a handful of line makers that have set a 21-point spread.  This exemplifies the importance of shopping for the best available line as a line move of 0.5 to 1.0 points can impact your expected winning percentage by 2%-5%.
