Vanderbilt at Houston, 7:00PM ET
After opening as a 14-point home favorite, the 7-0 Cougars are now only an 11-point fave for their matchup with Vanderbilt. With 83% of the public backing Houston, we have significant reverse line movement for this non-conference tilt on Sunday. Perhaps wiseguys feel as though Vandy’s defense, which is allowing just 16.3 points per game this year, can be the one to slow down Houston’s explosive offense. But can the Commodores score? They’re averaging just 18.0 points per game this season, which ranks 120th in the nation.
South Florida at Navy, 12:00PM ET
This line opened at the key number of 10 but is now falling closer to another key number. After the Midshipmen opened as double digit home favorites, the line is now sitting at Navy -7.5. The Midshipmen are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games and are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall, but the Bulls are 4-0 ATS in their last four games coming off a win and 9-4 at the betting window in their last 13 road games. Our College Football Public Betting Page shows that 53% of public money is currently on Navy.
Georgia Tech at Virginia, 3:00PM ET
Perhaps bettors feel as though the Yellow Jackets figured it out last week and are ready to roll again. After pulling off a last-second stunner against Florida State, Georgia Tech opened as a 3.5-point road favorite versus Virginia for Saturday’s 3:00PM ET kickoff. But the line has jumped up to GA Tech -6 despite the fact that the Yellow Jackets are 0-3 against the spread on the road this year. Perhaps this is more of an indication of how much bettors don’t believe in Virginia, which is 2-5 straight up and 1-3 ATS at home this season. A whopping 83% of public bets are on Georgia Tech.
