Football Line Moves Update - Friday Market Report November 30

A big weekend for football bettors is upon us, and that means it's time for a Friday Market Report from Don Best sports analysts Brian Blessing (@BrianBlessing) and Todd Fuhrman (@ToddFuhrman).
There has been some movement this week in the Big East clash down in Tampa where South Florida is hosting the Pitt Panthers. Initially offered at -5½, money on Pittsburgh has pushed that figure up to -7 during the week (click to check updated college football odds). Is this possibly Skip Holtz's final game with the Bulls as Fuhrman thinks it could be?
One of the conference championships that is flying under the radar is the Conference USA battle. The game started as a Pick 'em, but Tulsa is now a 2½-point favorite at home vs. Central Florida.
This game was part of the Don Best College Picks lineup for Dec. 1, and Blessing likes the Knights to gain revenge while Don Best analyst Kenny White is laying the points with Tulsa behind its strong ground game. Fuhrman breaks the tie and joins Blessing with a play on Central Florida.
Shifting from the college gridiron to the NFL, early action on the Texans has moved them from 4½-point favorites in Nashville to -6 vs. the Titans (click to check updated NFL odds). Both Blessing and Fuhrman agree this spread has moved in the wrong direction; Tennessee plus the points at home is the play.
A prime example of how Don Best Real-Time Odds can help bettors is the key AFC North clash in Baltimore between the Ravens and Steelers. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was officially ruled out for the game, and the line quickly jumped from Baltimore -3 to Baltimore -9.
Fuhrman can't figure out where the Steelers will come up with any offense without Roethlisberger, and Baltimore can all but wrap up the division with a victory.
