Sharp bets on Huskies drive down Bama spread

12:01 PM ET

A surge of money from influential bettors came in on underdog Washington this week, driving the point spread down ahead of Saturday’s semifinal with Alabama in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

The Crimson Tide had been favored by as much as 17 points over the Huskies in recent weeks. But as of Friday morning, the line had shrunk to Alabama as a 13.5-point favorite, with multiple sportsbooks reporting sharp action on Washington.

Since Tuesday, Las Vegas sportsbook operator CG Technology had taken six times as much money on Washington as it had on Alabama.

CG Technology also has seen significant action on the Huskies to win straight-up. As of Thursday afternoon, there were 126 money-line bets on Washington compared to only nine on Alabama, according to vice president Jason Simbal. The Crimson Tide were -540 money-line favorites to win straight-up, with the Huskies paying back more than 4-1 to pull the upset.
