Battle of the Pros ...

One book has heavy sharp action on Vermont/FSU OVER and another book has heavy sharp action on Vermont/FSU UNDER. The numbers are only off by 1-1.5 points across the market but there's a battle at those numbers.

Caesars Palace sportsbooks on NMSU-AUB

“Sharps jumped on NMSU at +7.5 and +7 when the numbers came out Sunday night, and there was a secondary move on the Aggies on Tuesday.”

“We saw some buyback at Auburn -5, but it definitely looks like the wiseguys are in agreement on the ‘dog. Public money could balance it out closer to tip, as Auburn's SEC title win is fresh on everyone's mind"

Caesars Palace sportsbooks on YALE-LSU

Line went from LSU -9 to -7.5 within 30 minutes Sunday. Then. "We took a sharp bet on LSU -7.5, but it looks like the market didn't agree, as the number has crept down to 7"

“We'd imagine action will remain pretty split on this one, as some will be enticed by the short number for a 3 seed, and others will want to back the Ivy League underdog.”

Line actually spent a few minutes at 6.5 in the middle of the night. Back at LSU -7 now

Caesars Palace sportsbooks on FLA-NEV

Nevada opens -2.5. “There was a small move down on this game Tuesday (to 1.5), but the number has worked its way back up to the opening line of 2.5."

"We haven't taken anything significant on either side, but this is one game where we could see a late public pile-on, as bettors look to lay a short number with a talented Nevada team.”

"This is likely going to be one of our bigger decisions of the day, as Belmont will be a very trendy ‘dog pick. We opened Maryland -3.5 and have already seen heavy action on the Bruins."

Line hit 2.5 Wed., back to 3 ~ 30 mins ago, now 2.5 again. Plenty of Belmont moneyline action too. "We are curious to see what the buy price is on favorite; we wouldn't be surprised if the game closes 2.”

Caesars Palace sportsbooks on MURRAY-MARQ

“It's been all one-sided action here, as sharps and public bettors are lining up on the ‘dog. Murray State was always going to be a trendy pick with Morant leading the way."

Marquette opens -5.5, down to -3.5. "Now Marquette’s Markus Howard has a wrist injury that could limit him. Barring a few big bets on the Warriors late, we'll need Marquette.”

SuperBook on NE-KAN

Kansas opens -8.5, dives to -6.5, just went back to -7 minutes ago. "This is one where the book needs the favorite."

"We’ve taken some sharp bets on Northeastern plus the points, as well as on the moneyline. It’s going to be a significant five-figure decision by game time.”

SuperBook on VERMONT-FLAST

“We’ve gotten a lot of action on Vermont from sharps. Mostly pointspread bets, but we also have a decent liability on Vermont moneyline, which dropped from +525 to +400.”

Florida State opened -11, dropped to -9 by Tuesday afternoon. Then down to 8.5 a couple hours ago.

Seminoles drop from -10.5 to -8.5, but now, "Dead even, but we have a feeling we'll need Vermont."

"This is an interesting one. As reported with other books, a lot of interest in Belmont as an underdog. We are now into +135 on the ML from opening +160 with 66% of the tickets on the Bruins."

"Similar story on the spread at Belmont +3, having opened +4.5."

"This will be a big one for us, and we are big Gators fans. Laid a moneyline bet of $114,000 on the Wolf Pack at -135 and are now into -145."

"80% of spread action on that game also for Nevada, and we are now Wolf Pack -2.5 from opening -1.5."

"Tigers really well supported by the public, but all the sharp play we have seen has been for Yale. Will still want Yale, largely due to 95% of moneyline action being for LSU."

"But on the spread, we have 70% of tickets for Yale. Now at +6.5, having been +8."

"66% of spread handle at -5.5 for Auburn. Sharp play earlier in week was for New Mexico State, which moved line from 7.5. But all public want this morning is Auburn. 90% of moneyline handle for Tigers too."

Multiple "known" bettors banging away at Minnesota +6 & +5.5 within the past five minutes including a "known" bettor who dropped $30,000 at +6 and $30,000 at +5.5

The game is also a Pros v Joes battle ... public high on Louisville, sharps arriving on Minnesota.
