Happy Fade the Public Friday! Today we have a loaded betting menu to choose from, including three college football games and 4 MLB playoff games. For an updated breakdown of Friday''s betting action, be sure to tune in to the VSiN Market Insights Podcast with Josh Appelbaum. It will be posted by 1 p.m. ET. I'll also be joining The Lombardi Line at 1:30 p.m. ET to offer a market update and then co-hosting Betting Across America with Mike Pritchard from 3 to 4 p.m. ET.
 
In the meantime, let's discuss where the action is flowing for several Friday Night College Football matchups...
 
 
7 p.m. ET: Temple at Cincinnati
 
This American Athletic Conference showdown features a pair of teams riding win streaks. Temple (3-2 SU, 2-3 ATS) has won two straight games, most recently beating Memphis 34-31, winning outright as 11-point home dogs. Meanwhile, Cincinnati (4-0 SU, 3-1 ATS) enters undefeated and ranked 5th in the country. This line opened with Cincinnati listed as a hefty 28-point home favorite. The public is split down the middle, knowing Cincinnati is the better team but maybe the number feels high against an above .500 team. Despite the tickets being split, the line has moved further to Cincinnati (-28 to -29.5), signaling some respected money laying the chalk with the Bearcats. Cincinnati has outscored their opponents on average 38-15. Temple has been outscored on average 27-30. The total opened at 54 and hasn't budged despite the public taking the over. This indicates some under liability. 
 
 
7 p.m. ET: Charlotte at FIU
 
Both of these Conference USA rivals are looking to get back on track after struggling as of late. Charlotte (3-2 SU, 2-1-2 ATS) started the season 2-0 but has since lost two of their last three, including a 24-14 loss to Illinois last week, pushing as a 10-point road dog. Meanwhile, FIU (1-4 SU, 2-3 ATS) has lost four straight games after winning their opener. Last week FIU got waxed by FAU 58-21, failing to cover as 10.5-point road dogs. This line opened with Charlotte listed as a 3.5-point road favorite. The public is happy to fade struggling FIU and rushing to the window to lay the short chalk with Charlotte. However, despite this lopsided betting the line has remained frozen at 3.5. Some shops have even dipped to 3 at times. Essentially all sharp liability appears to be buying low on FIU plus the points. We've also seen some over money show up, driving the total from 58 to 60.5. Charlotte is 4-1 to the under. FIU is 4-1 to the over. 
 
 
10:30 p.m. ET: Stanford at Arizona State
 
This Pac 12 clash is the last game of the night and also the most heavily bet. Stanford (3-2 SU, 3-2 ATS) has won three of their last four games, including a 31-24 win over Oregon last week, cashing as 8.5-point home dogs. Similarly, Arizona State (4-1 SU, 2-3 ATS) enters with a 22nd ranking and just took down UCLA 42-23, winning outright as 3-point road dogs. This line opened with Arizona State listed as a 10-point home favorite. The public is intrigued by Stanford getting double-digit points after their huge upset win over Oregon. However, this line has been steamed to Arizona State -10 to -13.5, signaling big money laying the home chalk. If this line reaches the key number of 14, expect some buyback on Stanford.
