More people betting on FSU

The bookies are only trying to get equal money bet on both teams.

Actually, it makes no sense to me. Every site I see shows the public has been putting more money on Clemson, yet the line moved UP. Should have moved the other way.

Still, if it were so easy to bet with the line move or to bet against the public, I would be rich. I wouldn't put too much into it.

bookies usually don't like moving the line at all much

it leaves them open to lose on both ends if the money swings back the other way

In the modern day of computer controlled betting, the line is not going to swing uncontrollably unless a single better walks in and drops a multi million dollar bet in a single transaction. I have had the line move on me while the person was keying in my bet.

Vegas never wins nor loses big on sports lines. In the olden days, the books on occasion would act on "inside information" and throw the book out of balance to capitalize on a game in which "the fix was on." Today, they all keep strictly balanced books.


looks to me like more money has been bet on Clemson

if Clemson wins the bookies lose. It's close and they still get the juice, but definitely the bookies want FSU to win right now.
