NFL Betting Report 10-18-20

We’ll use the same premise as Saturday, just looking at lines and moves based on betting percentages in the NFL.

Houston at Tennessee: Tennessee is now favored by 3.5 in this one, although it’s the total that draws a little attention. The number opened 55 and is now 53 with close to 60% of the bets on the over. Would take the under in this one.

Baltimore at Philadelphia: Both the total and side have seen movement here. The total opened at 48.5 and is now 46.5 with 70% of bets on the over. Pinnacle has the total at 46, so will grab the under in this one.

Rams at 49ers: Huge move here has the Rams favored by 3, which is a bit of overreaction. Would take 49ers in this spot.

Kansas City at Buffalo: The total moved from 55 to 57 even with more wagers on the under. As a result, would take the over in this one.

College Football Betting Report 10-17-20

We’ll do something we did a few years ago, which is looking at the college football odds from all the sportsbooks, total wagers and Pinnacle and determine where the sharp money was coming from.

Pittsburgh at Miami: We’ve seen a pretty strong reverse move in this one, as the Hurricanes opened -9.5 and are now up to -13 or 13.5 depending on your sportsbook. A little sharp money on the ‘Canes in this one.

Auburn at South Carolina: Auburn opened -3 and the line went up to -3.5 before dropping back down to 3. Pinnacle has this one at 2.5 (-117) and coming off a key number is a bit unusual, so a slight lean to South Carolina in this one.

Liberty at Syracuse: Liberty is favored by 2.5, which is right where this one opened, but Pinny has moved the road team to -3, so a Pinnacle lean on the away favorite.

Central Florida at Memphis: This one is much like the game above, with CFU favored by 2.5 at most places and Pinnacle having bumped the number to Central Florida -3, so another lean to the road favorite.

Georgia at Alabama: Alabama opened -7 and the line dropped to 5.5 at most places even though the Tide are getting close to 60% of the wagers. Pinnacle has the number at Tide -6, which pretty much negates the reverse move.


WNBA Season Wrap-Up

A bit of a disappointing WNBA season, as I started a little late due to the uncertainty of what was taking place and then sputtered a little bit, ending the regular season a game a game under .500 at 13-14. Did go 8-2 in the playoffs to end up with a 21-16 record, which is 56.75%, a bit lower than the two previous seasons, but good enough for a small profit. Our two-year record is 53-36, which is 59.55%.

We did have Seattle to win the championship back at the beginning of the season, so from a net unit standpoint, it wasn’t bad at all. Just wish we had fared a little better in the regular season.

By the time the 2021 season rolls around, hopefully things will be back to normal and we have games in front of the fans, or lack of in some cases in the WNBA.
