Biggest Betting Ticket/Money Discrepancies
We track both betting tickets on a given game and the percentage of money that’s been bet on each side. If there’s a big discrepancy, there’s likely some sharper, larger bets on the opposite side.

Bet Labs Pro Trend
Over at Bet Labs, we’ve created historically profitable betting systems for every sport. There aren’t any PRO systems that match tonight’s games, but one user-generated system that’s been successful over the past 15 years does.
Bad ATS Teams vs. Good ATS Teams
No team can cover every game. When they go on a crazy against-the-spread run, the market usually over-adjusts. The inverse is true for teams struggling to cover.
That’s the case for Boise State (10-13-1 ATS) at Fresno State (14-7-1 ATS). The Broncos are catching 6 points and match one of our PRO systems.

Sharp Money Indicators
Each day, we’ll highlight one game from our sharp report page that has multiple indicators of sharp action. Hold your nose for this one.
Stetson, 1-9 in the Atlantic Sun, is triggering a reverse line movement and contrarian indicators against Jacksonville on Wednesday night.
It’s one of Stuckey’s favorite bets of the night, too. Just be sure to hold your nose.
