Massachusetts (+9.5) vs. Rhode Island

Rhode Island opened as 11-point road favorites and are receiving 74% of spread tickets. While the public is laying the points, sharp bettors have driven the line down to 9.5.
Western Michigan (+2.5) at Eastern Michigan
7:00 p.m. ET
Sixty-six percent of tickets are backing Eastern Michigan, yet 57% of dollars wagered have taken Western Michigan. Our Bet Signals triggered a Steam Move on WMU at +3.5, helping explain why the line has moved down to +2.5.
Ball State (+7) at Toledo
7:00 p.m. ET
The majority of bettors (65%) are laying the points with Toledo, but the dollar percentages are split almost 50/50. A Reverse-Line Move was also triggered this morning at Ball State +8, revealing that sharp action is the reason for this line move.
St. John’s (+4.5) vs. Xavier
8:30 p.m. ET
With 82% of the action, Xavier is the most popular public side of the day, at the time of publication. Even with bettors loading up on the Musketeers, the line has fallen from -6 to -4.5. Such a large percentage of tickets taking one side but a line moving the other way is a clear indicator of one thing: sharp action.
