While maybe not the most appealing game on this Week 1 slate, East Carolina is still seeing plenty of betting action despite the Spartans coming in as steep -36.5 favorites. 

The total is more riveting here as the 52 is seeing greater than 90% on the OVER and oddsmakers haven't moved the number up, not even a half. That could be an indication they feel strongly about an UNDER.


More of the Most Bet on Games for Saturday Week 1

Utah State vs. Iowa we find the Hawkeyes, currently marred in a gambling scandal, as the -24 favorites after opening at -19.

The Illinois vs. Toledo game features a line of -9 that hasn't moved and lopsided on the Fighting Illini.

Colorado is the darling of college football fans and bettors this season.  They will take on last year's loser in the College Football Playoff Championship, TCU, as a +20.5 dog after opening at +21.5.

Texas Tech was coming in at -14.5 vs. Wyoming with better than 80% of the action on the Red Raiders.

Colorado State gets all the love as a +10 dog versus Washington State.  Amazingly the line was initially set at +16.5.

Forget for a moment that USC comes in as the -38 favorite after opening at -35.5, the public is eating this one up at a 70% to 80% clip.

Action on Alabama is especially lopsided at better that 85% as the -39 favorite versus Middle Tennessee.

California opened at -7 with the line dropping to -6.5 in their game against North Texas.  This one is likely to stay UNDER 54 as the number has dropped off the 57.5 and greater than 75% are backing the OVER.

We also have West Virginia vs. Penn State and a total that has moved from 53 to 48.5 with everyone on the UNDER, an indication that is where the total will fall, below 48.5.
