Lopsided Dollars Moving Line in Small College Hoops Game
Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports
We have a solid midweek slate going on tonight, with bettors getting to choose from 35 different college games. This includes seven games with ranked teams for both squares and sharps to pile on. PJ Walsh already touched on one game that bettors were waking and raking on, but there is another tiny game attracting attention from sharp players.
In the little Missouri Valley (who knew such a thing existed) Conference, Indiana State heads to Drake to take on the Bulldogs. Drake, who has gone 9-2 at home and 3-9 on the road, opened as a three-point favorite, but it appears as if sharp bettors have the same thoughts as George.
Though this is not a very heavily-bet game, as our data shows that Indiana State is getting almost 30% more dollars than bets.
Our Bet Signals also tracked a steam move on the Sycamores (that’s Indiana State) triggered at CRIS. Shortly following this move, the line dropped from +2.5 to +1 across the market. At Pinnacle, the line is Drake -1 (+102), suggesting that it may soon become a pick ’em.
This season, Drake has been one of the better ATS teams in the country with a 14-9-1 mark, while Indiana State has gone a mediocre 10-12-2. In their earlier meeting this season, Drake won, 75-72, in Indy as a five-point dog. While Indiana State hasn’t done anything impressive as of late, losing five of their past six games, bettors clearly believe the line was not set properly for this one.
