Where the action is: Sharps take UL early in Sugar Bowl

Louisville Cardinals vs. Florida Gators (-13, 45.5)

After a busy holiday season, filled with multiple bowl matchups each day, bettors get a standalone BCS bowl game on Jan. 2 – the AllState Sugar Bowl between the Louisville Cardinals and the Florida Gators.

Oddsmakers opened the Gators as 15-point favorites at some books but sharps quickly jumped on the Big East’s representative in the BCS.

“The only sharp money seen on this side came in at Louisville +14,” an oddsmaker at BetDSI.com told Covers. "The rest of the betting action on the spread has been the public backing Florida at -13.”

According to BetDSI.com, the action on the Gators is at more than a 3-to-1 ticket count and a 2-to-1 ratio in terms of total handle.

As for the total, books opened with the number at 45.5 and it has remained steady for the most part. Some online markets have moved to 46 and the LVH Superbook in Las Vegas was dealing 46 before being bet back down to 45.5.

LIMover55 might be right! But I hope Louisville is better than NIU! I had NIU and had to change the channel and never went back! One of the most horrific offenses I've ever seen. NIU couldn't even pick up a single first down! Hope this won't turn out the same like LIMover55 says! GLTA! We'll need it!

Must run with Louisville and take the 14.5 points! Florida RB (injured ribs) and QB (injured ankle) both playing but might slow down offense. Florida offense has seen a sharp drop-off last three out of four games! Three games only decided by 7 points! Will look for QB Bridgewater (3,452 YDs and 25 TDs) to team up with Louisville's five MAJOR WRs and cover the 14 + point spread! GLTA and Happy New Year!
