Tonight, a couple college basketball brouhahas take place that’s aren’t the most popular games of the day as far as the general public is concerned, but that hasn’t stopped sharp bettors from shying away.

By combining our betting market data and tools and expert analysis, we’ve pinpointed two matchups that professional bettors can’t stop hammering.

Rider at Fairfield

7 p.m. ET

Betting market analysis: Fairfield has struggled mightily, losing five of their past six and compiling a 2-5 record in conference play. The good news? Their lone win during this recent six-game stretch came in their last game out.

With public bettors using the “they-can’t-do-that-twice-in-a-row” logic, Fairfield has barely eclipsed 30% of bets today. Facing Rider at home, they’ve received support from only 31% of bettors. Despite that, they’ve seen the line move in their favor, thanks to a heavy majority of the money landing on the Stags.

On-court analysis: According to college hoops aficionado Jordan Majewski, Fairfield recently added a key player who should help their chances tonight.

“Fairfield’s offense has gotten a boost from Aidas Kavaliauskas, who became eligible at the start of the semester. He played his first game against Rider and wasn’t quite ready, but in his past two contests Kavaliauskas has averaged 14 points and 10.5 assists, while shooting 11-of-19 from the floor. Also, up until last year, Fairfield’s coach, Sydney Johnson, was great in a revenge spot.”
