There are five spreads on this CFB Week 8 slate where one team has collected at least 60% of the tickets but the other has received at least 60% of the handle. Will the side getting more bets prevail or will it be the side getting the bigger bets?
Georgia State 75.4% tickets, Louisiana-Lafayette 83.4% handle
This is the biggest discrepancy between tickets and handle of any Week 8 game. As a result, it’s moved off a key number from Louisiana-Lafayette -3 to -3.5.
Kansas State 63.9% tickets, TCU 63.7% handle
TCU backup QB Josh Hoover impressed in his first start after taking over for an injured Chandler Morris, throwing for 439 yards and 4 TDs vs. BYU 😮. Now TCU has gone from +7.5 to +6 at Kansas State.
Tennessee 61.0% tickets, Alabama 64.7% handle
Alabama’s spotty QB play has been in the spotlight, but what about the Volunteers ranking 2nd (7.2) in yards per play last season and now being 40th (6.3) 😬? The spread first went from Alabama -9.5 to -8.5, however it’s since been bet back up to Alabama -9.
Clemson 60.1% tickets, Miami (FL) 61.1% handle
It’s been a battle around a key number. This spread has been at Clemson -2.5 (opener), Clemson -3.5 and Clemson -3 (current) throughout the week, as bettors monitor the status of Miami QB Tyler Van Dyke.
Buffalo 64.3% tickets, Kent State 92.5% handle
Even with the majority of the handle coming in on Kent State, it still hasn’t been enough to budge Buffalo off of -7. Is this the week that the Golden Flashes cover after starting off 0-3 ATS in MAC play?
