12/30-12/31 NCAA-FB Bowl Games Smart Money Report

College Bowl Season and make sure to always check back at the site as I utilize my Las Vegas oddsmaker and NYC bookie contacts to give you the info on what’s happening behind the counter in the College Bowl games this year. We’ll talk about all of this weeks games in depth giving you the edge up on the early moves in the marketplace coast to coast.

I always preach to pay attention to opening numbers. If you want to win like as sharp you have to think like a sharp I always say. Remember sharps aka professional bettors bet early in the week into opening numbers to get themselves the best value possible.

Remember squares aka the general betting public usually wait to place their bets until gameday before kick off. So any early moves you see during the beginning of the week is sharp money.

It’s important to realize that every early sharp move isn’t them holding on to that position. Sometime it’s head fake money which is sharps moving a line in order to get a more favorable number on game day betting the other side.
