Each week, we eyeball the opening line in comparison to the current odds
and follow all the major college football line movement
and decipher whether it’s coming from public money or sharp action, syndicate betting and/or wiseguy plays.
In cases where we feel there is value, we’ll recommend a play on the move and keep a record of how that does here. We’ll be selective and “pick and choose our spots” and it’s very likely that these plays will be a profitable proposition long term.
We’ll watch the moves throughout the week but only post our takes on these moves on Friday afternoon so we can hold out as long as possible to get the most information possible.
While we would never recommend playing a game blindly by coattailing a line move, there is however great value to this information if you know how to harness it. We’ll be making our best attempt to do just that. Who knows, maybe we snag into 62 or 63% with this play? 🙂 Good luck to us! (Plays posted each week by Friday afternoon).
