Line Moves - Week 8

Editor’s Note: Check out our Live Odds product, which features all of the below line moves in real-time and much more.

Week 7 Recap

Favorites: 3-7 ATS (8-2 SU)
Underdogs: 3-0 ATS (2-1 SU)
Totals: 1-1

The early bettors got beat up last week with early favorite leans, connecting at a 30 percent clip and two of the ‘chalk’ plays, Ohio and Colorado State, lost outright. While the favorites were subpar, the underdogs produced great results and big upsets. Missouri and Utah were both steamed early and they captured upsets against Georgia and Stanford respectively. The other winning ‘dog ticket was Florida Atlantic, who covered as a 10-point home underdog in its 23-20 loss to Marshall. Make a note that despite a 2-5 straight up (SU) record, the Owls are now 6-1 against the spread (ATS) this season.
