Ya I dont know when 3.5 was available. Must have been last night, or real early this morning. By 9:30-10 this mornig every book was at 4.5
Can't believe Penn St won and covered that 3.5 line went to sleep at half time....
I saw it at -5 two and a half hours before game time. I liked the handicap, felt Nebraska would keep it reasonably close, opted for the money line. BL's release moved the line.
The 3 1/2 was overnight and early. As you can see those who are already extended service clients were able to get in at that number. Unfortunately the $1 handicapper gets a great deal of buys, therefore in the vast majority of cases the line is going to move. It's not just me, but anytime you have that many people betting the same side it's going to likely move the number. Saw that it closed at 5 just about everywhere, never saw the 5 1/2. Just keep in mind in the future if you are buying the $1 from anyone best to do it early.
As for tonight I fully expected the line to move which is why we released as early as possible. Very comfortable at the current number, but you may want to wait as there likely will be some buyback.

Money management, line shopping and reading the betting markets are just as important as picking the right side.
