what's the spread for the the Clemson ACC title game. Wait, it too early. Clemson might not make it.

I thought I read somewhere this thing opened at -10.5 earlier this week?

Either way, if it moved from -5 to -6.5 that's good news I guess.

There's really no difference with 5 and 6.5 except for the fact they're different numbers.

I don’t think it ever opened it -10.5, I think somebody was quoting the Miami of Ohio game. I believe it opened at -6.5
I checked the line in today's paper, and indeed it does say that the opening line was -10.5 and today it's at -6.5. I don't recall what service my local paper, Savannah Morning News, uses, but they always show the open vs. the current line.

FWIW, it got down to as low as -4 on Tuesday or Wednesday, was back to -5.5 yesterday, and of course -6.5 today. Not a gambler, myself, so I don't pretend to know what this all means. Just putting it out there for anyone who might find it useful.

No book who accepts bets from people with more than two brain cells went to 4. Furthermore, those books never came close to 10.5. The highest was 7.5 from any book worth quoting. The 10.5 line came from the BetOnline opener which is not a good indication of the actual market. Those BetOnline opening lines have extremely small limits and are not a true indication of what the line should be. It is much better to use Pinnacle lines as a market indicator. Pinnacle has the current line at -6.5 (-107).

Not surprised. Could not understand the low number, especially at home.

Guarantee you it opened up at +10.5 on at least one book but it didn't last. I try hitting the lines immediately on Bet Online (and also Sports Betting.ag) every Sunday around 4:00 and I specifically had this game on my radar. I did a ctrl+F search for Georgia Tech, not Miami.

This is a fair assessment. $500 limits on those opening lines usually.

Don't know much about gambling, but I know what I saw.
