Wake and Rake: Wiseguys Moving Tuesday NIT Betting Lines
Nicole Sweet-USA TODAY Sports
While mainstream sports media and fans are counting down the days until the Final Four tips off this weekend, bettors still have plenty of college basketball postseason, NBA, and even MLB action to get down on throughout the week.
Recreational bettors aren’t falling over themselves to bet weeknight NIT games, but remember, NIT winners pay just the same as NCAA Tournament ones.
Professionals don’t care about who is playing. If there is value in a number, they’ll jump on it. And that’s exactly what’s happening in tonight’s Mississippi State-Penn State (9:30 p.m. ET) NIT semifinal matchup.
Bookmaker.eu opened this total at 137 and the action is balanced, with 54% of bets on the over. While the ticket count remains relatively even, Sports Insights’ Bet Signals — which track sharp action in real time across the sports betting market — triggered one Reverse Line Move and one Steam Move at under 137.
With sharp money pounding the under, Bookmaker.eu has adjusted the total down to 135.5. In fact, the majority of offshore sportsbooks are already down to 135, revealing just how much under money has come down on this matchup.
