Every week we speak directly with the line managers at some of the sports betting industry’s largest sportsbooks about which games the public is chasing and which the sharps are pounding. Let’s take a look at what’s in store for this week in College Football.
Sports Marketwatch – NCAA Week 15
Recapping Week 14
San Jose State, a two-touchdown underdog against Idaho, kept it close for Marketwatch last week, earning us another victory as the NCAA Football season winds down. The Spartans, who notched only one win all year, took the Vandals to overtime, but ultimately came up three points short.
Overall Record = 14-12 (53.8%)
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 15 – Game to Watch
Navy vs. Army (12/11 – 2:30 p.m. ET)
Navy comes into the 2010 edition of the Army/Navy game on a three-game winning streak, including a 35-19 win over Arkansas State in their last game. As expected, the Midshipmen did the majority of their damage on the ground, to the tune of 301 rushing yards.
Army is looking to rebound from a 27-3 loss to Notre Dame three weeks ago. The Black Knights struggled to move the ball all game, gaining a grand total of 174 yards.
Navy opened as a 7-point favorite at Pinnacle and is currently receiving 70% of spread wagers. This lopsided betting has pushed the line to -8 at many sportsbooks across the sports marketplace.
Even though the line has moved with the betting percentages, multiple Smart Money plays have been triggered throughout the week, including one at ABC (+8.42 units), our #2-ranked sportsbook for NCAA Football Smart Money Plays.
So, here’s a wrap-up of Sports Insights’ analysis of this week’s Game to Watch for NCAA Football Week 15.
