7:30 p.m. ET: Tulsa (-13, 52.5) at Temple

Both of these American Athletic Conference rivals are looking to snap losing streaks. Tulsa (2-4) has lost three straight games and just got crushed by Navy 51-21, losing outright as 4.5-point road favorites. Meanwhile, Temple (2-4) has last two straight and just got blown out by Central Florida 70-13, failing to cover as 23.5-point road dogs. This line opened with Tulsa listed as a 12-point road favorite. Currently 62% of bets and 68% of money is laying the points with Tulsa, driving the Golden Hurricane up from -12 to -13. Tulsa's big advantage comes on offense, averaging 33 PPG compared to just 15 PPG for Temple. Tulsa also enjoys a rest advantage, having last played on October 8th compared to October 13th for Temple. The total hasn't budged off the opener of 52.5. This is notable because 69% of bets are taking the over, yet the line hasn't moved, signaling some sharp line freeze liability on the under. The under is receiving 31% of bets but 61% of money, a notable sharp under discrepancy. 


8 p.m. ET: UAB at Western Kentucky (-1.5, 58.5) 

These Conference USA foes are battling for one of the top spots in the standings. UAB (4-2) has won two straight and just took down Charlotte 34-20. On the other hand, Western Kentucky (4-3) just dismissed MTSU 35-17. This line opened with Western Kentucky listed as a 2.5-point home favorite. The public is all over Western Kentucky laying the short chalk at home. However, despite receiving 71% of bets, we've seen Western Kentucky fall from -2.5 to -1.5. This signals some sharp reverse line movement on UAB, with pros grabbing the points with the road dog. We could also. be looking at a higher scoring game here. The total opened at 57.5 and has been bet up to 58.5, indicating sharp action on the over. The over is getting 75% of bets and 85% of money. Western Kentucky is averaging 40 PPG and UAB is averaging 35 PPG.
