NCAA Football Opening Line Report Week 6

NCAA Football Opening Line Report Week 6

The opening lines are out for this coming week’s college football games, and what does the early betting action say?  Please visit our blog and read our series of Sports Marketwatch articles for updated information during the week.

Kansas State vs. Nebraska

There are several weekday games this week, before Saturday’s barrage of college football games.  This match-up is getting the most betting activity of the weekday games.  And, for contrarian sports investors, the betting is very lopsided, with home team Kansas State only collecting 25% of the bets at the time of this blog post.  Keep an eye on this game for a potential “betting against the Public” play.  The constant betting on Nebraska has created some line movement, with the early line increasing from Kansas State +10.5 to +12.

Team # Bets Spread % Open Current
Nebraska 1478 75% -10.5 -12
Kansas State 25% +10.5 +12

South Carolina vs. Alabama

Alabama continues to roll as the #1 team in the nation.  Being number one gets you heavy media attention — and oftentimes, heavy betting activity from the general betting public.  South Carolina, at home, should be a good test.  However, there is strong betting activity on #1 Alabama, with the public viewing 7 points as too little.  Interestingly, some early sharps pushed the line down from the opener of South Carolina +8 down to +7.  Contrarian sports investors will look to tail the sharps and will be taking a serious look at SC.

Team # Bets Spread % Open Current
Alabama 2551 83% -8 -7
South Carolina 17% +8 +7
