In this post we desire to share four video games that we separated for this weekend, one of which goes tonight.
One approach of handicapping we do here at SBA is that we take a look at the upcoming games and appoint our own point spreads before we ever look at the national lines. This actually helps us narrow down what video games we will be playing this weekend.
Louisville at Georgia Tech– Friday 7pm EST
. We had this game at Louisville -6.5 points. The official line was released at Louisville -5. The disparity is 1.5 points. The line has actually shifted half a point up and half a point down depending upon which sportsbook you are looking at. We were able to get our action down on Louisville -4.5. The public wagering has to do with even on this one.
NC State at Virginia– Saturday 12pm Noon EST
. We have this line all the way up at -13.5 points. Yes, this is the group that went into Pitt and won recently however Pitt isnt really that excellent and they drop a couple of games a season to stinkers. Typical opponent sensible, we take a look at how Virginia beat Duke by 18 points, whereas Va Tech just beat duke by a single TD. That exact same Va Tech group beat NC State by 3+ TDs. The Virginia line came out at UVA -10 and is now down to UVA -7.5 points. Mix in the reality that public is all over NC State like white on rice and you must have a slam dunk triumph here wagering Virginia.
Texas Tech at Iowa State– Saturday 3:30 pm EST
. The line we had on our sheet was Iowa State -10. The main line is Iowa State -12.5 which in our minds give us 2 and a half totally free points.
The huge game of the week. When looking at this video game early in the week we stated to ourselves the line need to not be under 16 points, nor must it be above 20. The line was provided at Clemson -16 but immediately came down to -14 even.
