Following last week’s “upset” of Nebraska, the betting public looks to be back aboard the Texas bandwagon. The Longhorns opened as a 23-point favorite at CRIS and, according to Sports Insights’ Betting Trends data, this game is already one of the most heavily bet games of the week. Since opening, 73% of spread wagers are giving the points and taking Texas, yet the line has moved in the opposite direction of the betting percentages, dropping 2.5 points to -20.5.
This “reverse line movement” is a key indicator that sharp money is coming down on Iowa State. Sports Insights’ Betting Systems have also triggered multiple plays on this game, so be sure to log into your Sports Insights account, check our Betting System plays and do some line shopping before playing on either side of this Big 12 contest.
