The road has not modified from its opening value, and a few sportsbooks have it priced a 1.2-point decrease at 7. The truth that 70 p.c of the variety of bets have been on UCF, coupled with the road not transferring — if something, transferring reverse of the general public — displays that there are a bigger variety of bettors selecting up the worth introduced in a Cardinal wager. The shortage of line motion additionally tells us the sportsbooks have even or near-even cash on every group.
