College Football Week 7 Line Moves
Which way are the lines moving for college football's Week 7? We've compiled some of the bigger ATS movements for Saturday's action.
Tulsa at East Carolina, 12:00PM ET
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie, the Pirates are now 13.5-point favorites after the line opened at ECU -9.5. Along with the Purdue-Wisconsin side, this represents the biggest ATS move among Saturday's college football games. With only 51% of public bets being placed on Tulsa and no major injuries that have been reported, this looks like a matchup where wiseguys jumped on the Pirates and drove the spread up. So if you like ECU, bet them now before you lose any more value.
Purdue at Wisconsin, 12:00PM ET
The Badgers went from 19.5-point favorites versus the Boilermakers but are now 23.5-point faves as we get closer to the Noon kickoff. Only 54% of public bettors are backing Wisconsin, which is 11-1 against the spread in its last 12 games versus Purdue and 4-0 ATS in its last four home games versus the Boilermakers.
Marshall at. Florida Atlantic, 12:0oPM ET
This movement doesn't make a lot of sense outside of the sharps pounding FAU. The Owls opened as a 7-point home underdog but are now only a 3.5-point dog despite 83% of public money being on Marshall. FAU quarterback Jaquez Johnson was questionable with an ankle injury last week but played in a 27-26 loss to Rice. With Johnson's status not in doubt, this line movement is intriguing to say the least.
Virginia Tech at. Miami, 3:30PM ET
The Hurricanes opened as a 6-point home favorite but the line has been bet down to 3 despite 55% of public money being on Miami. The Hokies are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven road games versus the Hurricanes and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall versus Miami. The underdog is also 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings between these two teams while the road team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
