Aggressive Line Movement on Clemson Game Was Tell-Tale Sign in Week 1

Aggressive Line Movement on Clemson Game Was Tell-Tale Sign in Week 1

One thing we paid close mind to in the Week 1 clash (if you could call it that) between Clemson and Georgia Tech was the closing line and how the number had moved from -19.5 at some books all the way up to -24 at Bovada.  Action was plentiful (85% or greater) on the Tigers, even at that closing number.  BetOnline had reported 72% on Clemson at -24 at the time of closing.

Clemson Georgia Tech Prop Bets Monday Night College Football

The Double/Double on Clemson leading after the first half and winning the game pays $10 for every $47.50 bet.  Compare that to the moneyline of -2500 on the Tigers to win outright and you see how, though still pricey, some prop bets do offer tremendous value.  News flash: We don't see Georgia Tech leading at any point during this game.
