Where the action is: New Year's Eve bowl games

Dec 30, 2012 |
There are four bowl games for bettors to choose from New Year’s Eve. We talk with online sportsbook BetDSI.eu about the biggest line moves on the board.

Music City Bowl

North Carolina State vs. Vanderbilt (-7, 51.5)

Public action set the tone in this game and it currently sits at a 2-to-1 bet count and 2-to-1 money position. Some respected money did back NC State at the +7.5 number giving it a slight nudge to 7, but the line has held pretty steady to this point. If late public wagering backs Vandy, then it’s possible that value could get back to where it opened.

Sun Bowl

Southern California vs. Georgia Tech (7.5, 64)

The side on this matchup has not attracted a lot of betting action and the line availability has been on and off due to injury reports. The current betting position on this game is at 3-to-1 in both wager count and money wagered in favor of the Trojans. Those counts were built on the strength of solely public action. Sharp money did chime in early on the total at under 66, creating the 2-point move to 64.

Liberty Bowl

Iowa State vs. Tulsa  (1, 51)

Sharp money did back Iowa State at PK pushing the value to -1. However, that did get some respected money buying back Tulsa at the +1 value and creating two-sided action on this game.

Chick fil-A Bowl

Louisiana State vs. Clemson (5, 58.5)

This will be a game to watch as it has become a perfect storm from a betting point of view. It is currently a lopsided affair with both sharp and public money backing LSU. Sharp money came in early at the 3.5 to 4 line values and has been bolstered by the public money piling on at the 4 and 4.5 values pushing the current line to LSU -5. The bet count is currently 5-to-1 in favor of LSU and showing no signs of slowing down. The money wagered is currently a staggering 8-to-1 in favor of LSU. This line could possibly see some more movement late.
