In the meantime, let's discuss where the money is flowing for tonight's two College Football matchups...
6 p.m. ET: Cincinnati at South Florida
This AAC showdown features two conference opponents at opposite ends of the won-loss spectrum. Cincinnati (9-0) is undefeated and ranked 5th overall in the country. Cincinnati just edged Tulsa 28-20, although the Bearcats failed to cover as 22.5-point home favorites. On the flip side, South Florida (2-7) is unranked and has two in a row. The Bulls are just 1-5 over their last six games, most recently falling to Houston 54-42 but covering as 13.5-point home dogs. This line opened with Cincinnati listed as a 23.5-point road favorite. The public expects a blowout and isn't scared off by the big chalk number for Cincinnati. However, despite this lopsided betting we've seen the line fall from Cincinnati -23.5 to -23. This signals some reverse line movement on home dog South Florida. Unranked home dogs against ranked opponents are 32-24 ATS (57%) this season. Home conference dogs that see the line stay the same or move in their favor are 37-29 ATS (56%).
9 p.m. ET: Wyoming at Boise State
This late night Mountain West clash features two teams with identical records. Wyoming (5-4 SU, 2-6-1 ATS) started the season 4-0 but then lost four straight until last week, when Wyoming beat Colorado State 31-17 as 3-point home dogs. Meanwhile, Boise State (5-4 SU, 6-3 ATS) has won two in a row and three of their last four, including a 40-14 win over Fresno State last week, winning outright as 4.5-point road dogs. This line opened with Boise State listed as a 14-point home favorite. Respected money seems to be leaning with Wyoming as we've seen the line fall from 14 to 13.5. Wyoming has buy-low value as a bad ATS team (2-6-1) against a sell-high good ATS team (6-3). We've also seen some over money show up, raising the total from 47.5 to 48.5.
