My colleague and fellow Las Vegas handicapper Brad Powers chipped-in insight and a pick on Duquesne +45.5.
FanDuel Sportsbook had Duquesne +46.5. With a live screen on the Covers YouTube channel showing the point spreads and totals from at least 15 sportsbooks, the lines moved within seconds and FanDuel was down to +43.5.
“Anytime you have a big spread like this, it’s usually about the favorite,” Powers said. “It’s about the lack of motivation with FSU having LSU on deck next week (look ahead), and the Seminoles also have some key injuries along the offensive line.”
It’s likely Florida State doesn’t play as up-tempo or show their full arsenal, and some starters could rest in the second half as well if the Seminoles open up a big lead.
I’ll be back with more college football picks and weekly top-25 games of interest looking to add more winners and information you can bet on this season.
