Sportsbook Flooded with Action on Florida Gulf Coast

March 29, 2013

The love affair with Florida Gulf Coast University continues. Checking in with sportsbooks today we see heavy lopsided action on FGCU at land based sportsbooks and offshore online sportsbooks as well.  At the land based casinos tonights game vs. Florida has been the heaviest bet game of the whole tournament.  With Online sportsbooks we have checked on it’s the second heaviest bet game.

The line for FGCU is currently Florida -13 after opening at -12.5. It appears that sportsbook managers are not going to let the lopsided action push them far off the opening line.  According to industry insiders if this game had been played just a few weeks ago Florida would’ve been favored by 20 points minimum.

Not just the spread on the game tonight is a popular bet, but also the odds for FGCU to win the entire tournament have been bet heavy. Those odds starting this week ranged anywhere from 100-1 to 50-1 depending on which sportsbook you checked and on what day.

The networks and basketball purists alike love the Cinderella story. This years Cinderella story is clearly FGCU.  Poor Wichita State would’ve received all the Cinderella talk if it weren’t for these upstarts from Florida.
