Brad's Early Leans, Bets, & Lines to Monitor

Brad Thomas

It’s vital that each week in college football to look at the lines as early as possible to get as much CLV (closing line value) as possible. Here is a quick dive into my early bets, leans, and lines I am monitoring to see which way the action takes us.

Later in the week, I will use this information to finalize my betting card. But from a handicapping perspective, this is information that is important for every bettor.

Free Early Bet:

Buffalo -11.5 (-115)

Lines to Monitor:

Louisiana Layfette +2.: The line will move closer to 1, so if you like ULL + points you will lose money all week.

Air Force /Utah State: Total under 51:  Leaned under here. Didn’t want to miss out on the good total So it’s a lock in for me.  Line will move more. Aggies are 9-1-1 under in last 11 in December. Air Force is an under machine, 5-1 to the under in last 6. 4-0 Under in last four as favorite.

Texas -10: Line already moved 2 points. This could be a HUGE bounce back spot for Big Sam and company

Oklahoma State -2.5: Line has only moved one point. But I am a believer in this OK State team. Tied for second in the Big 12 is not a surprise. Most thought they would be competitive. With TCU having a "down year" defensively, this could be a perfect spot if you jump on this line early.


Liberty +7: Listen, this line should move so I am not worried about locking them in now. I won’t bet it at +7 but I could be entertained the closer to double digits we get.

Florida -17: This could be a square play. Tennessee hasn’t done anything in WEEKS! But with the Tennessee being 1-5-1 ATS
