WESTERN KENTUCKY V ALABAMA BIRMINGHAM CONSENSUS REPORT

Taking a look at the Sportsbook reports on game day morning, these are the reported consensus trends in betting volume from participating sportsbooks. Note that these numbers will change as more action comes in as we get closer to game time, but it is always worth a look at the morning reports just to see where the money is going.

  • Betting Alabama Birmingham against the spread(4.5): 15%
  • Betting Alabama Birmingham to win straight up(176): 48%
  • Betting Western Kentucky against the spread(-4.5): 85%
  • Betting Western Kentucky to win straight up(-210): 52%

Important to remember that the above consensus numbers are an early snapshot of public action. The Professional Handicappers League has a few professional consensus services for those looking for a consensus of expert sports picks. Personally, we like to know where the money goes early, especially looking for drastic early money on one side, which is often "smart money", whereas heavy action closer to game time is usually "square money".

COLLEGE BASKETBALL FREE PICK: ALABAMA BIRMINGHAM/WESTERN KENTUCKY

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers is a team we have a pretty strong read on and have had a lot of success betting or against. We have placed 15 documented premium wagers on Hilltoppers games in the last decade, winning 14, next to just 1 for a winning rate of 93.30% and profits of $12940.00. We do not have a premium selection in this game today, but we do have a strong opinion.

Some of the factors we look at are the total points being scored by both teams, which is 155.2. Together, the teams average 140.4 points allowed, which gives us expected total points of 147.8, which can be compared against the over/under offered by oddsmakers for those inclined to bet on totals.

To determine the game-winner and to consider the spread in a game we can look at point differential as well, but it is wise to weigh the power rating differential even more. In this game, which is considered "neutral", the power rating on the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers is 78.0 while the Alabama Birmingham Blazers bring a rating of 76.0, meaning, a reasonable line on this game for Western Kentucky is -2.

Taking everything into consideration we do have a free pick opinion on this game.

Max Prophet says, take the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers -5/-106
(Record for Professional Handicapper Max Prophet betting on or against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers: 14-1/93.30%, +12940.00)
