Earlier this morning, I scanned the board using our College Basketball PRO Report and there wasn’t much popping in terms of valuable spread and over/under bets.
In fact, tonight’s Detroit vs. Northern Kentucky Horizon League conference tournament matchup was showing as the smartest bet on the board, and based on line movement, the betting market appears to agree.
However, as the morning has continued so has the action, with plenty of games now getting hit by respected bettors.
Baylor vs. West Virginia, one of Tuesday’s premier matchups, was eerily quiet just a few hours ago, but as our College Basketball PRO Report now shows, wiseguys have taken a market-moving position on this game.
Let’s dive into the details.
Baylor vs. West Virginia Pick
According to Action Labs’ Bet Signals, professional bettors have largely passed on the Baylor vs. West Virginia spread in favor of the total.
Two waves of smart money have come in on this under, convincing oddsmakers to kick the total down from an opener of 149.5 to 148.5 across the market (click here for live Baylor vs. West Virginia odds).
As is typically the case, sharp bettors are backing their opinions with large wagers.
The under has landed just 44% of the bets, but that minority represents a whopping 90% of the money wagered on the Baylor vs. West Virginia total.
With plenty of time between now and tip off, this gap will very likely close throughout the day, but it still provides important information regarding how wiseguys have bet this game so far and why the over/under has moved the way it has.
