PointsBet USA’s trading team tell AmericanBettingExperts where the public and the sharps are putting their money ahead of Week 3 of the College Football season
The College Football season enters Week 3 and New Jersey sports bettors are laying down big money on some of the big games on the slate.
Ahead of Saturday’s games, AmericanBettingExperts spoke to PointsBet USA’s Matt Chaprales to find out where the public and the sharp money is going, in order to help our readers find winning wagers.
(#19) Iowa (-1.5) at Iowa State
The Iowa v Iowa State Game opened at Iowa -1. However, early action pushed the line to as high as Iowa -2.5. The Spread eventually settled
at Iowa -2 for a bit, but has since been drawn in to Iowa -1.5.
The Over/Under opened at 44.5 but the bulk of the money at PointsBet has been on the Under, which is now down at 43.5.
“After seeing some early Iowa money it’s been mostly Iowa State, with 60% of the money currently on the Cyclones. Overall, not a ton of action on this game in New Jersey, but we’re expecting an insane atmosphere and one of the highest-handle gamedays of the year at the PointsBet Sportsbook at Catfish Bend Casino – our retail property located in Burlington, IA. The presence of the ESPN College Gameday crew being in Ames, IA for the game will only amplify the interest we are expecting”, said Matt Chaprales.
#2 Alabama (-25.5) at South Carolina
“Steady action on Alabama, as the Tide are accounting for 87% of the tickets and 81% of the money. Line has held firm around -25.5” said Matt Chaprales.
#5 Oklahoma (-23.5) at UCLA
“Game opened OU -21, has moved to 23. Action reflects that, with an 80/20 money split in favor of the Sooners.”
Pitt (+17) at (#13) Penn State
“All Penn State money in this one. Over 90% of the money on both the spread and the moneyline favors the Nittany Lions. The only thing in question is who sings a better version of Sweet Caroline!”
(#1) Clemson (-27.5) at Syracuse
75% of tickets and 78% of the money is on Clemson to cover the number, which has moved from an opener of -26 to as high as 28 before settling at 27.5.
“Public bettors are all over Clemson, but the sharp guys are well aware that Syracuse has been a thorn in the side of the Tigers the past two years”, added Chaprales.
