Betting unders in games that aren’t on TV not your thing? Then you may have come to the wrong place.
We’ll examine The Action Network’s market data to see whether there are any profitable contrarian opportunities, betting system matches and more below. First, a primer on what this piece is and isn’t.
It is …
- A quick snapshot into the many betting tools The Action Network has to offer.
- A good place to start when navigating a large college basketball slate.
It is not …
- An endorsement to blindly bet any of these games.
All betting data comes from our public betting page (ticket count is free, but money percentages are available only to EDGE subscribers). Betting trends are available for free in The Action Network app, while more advanced betting systems are available to Sports Insights subscribers via Bet Labs.

Biggest Betting Ticket/Money Discrepancies

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.
Bet the Under with Two Over Teams
When two teams playing have gone over the total at a high rate, the line might be inflated. That’s been the case over the last 15 years, when this system has covered at a 56% clip.
Tonight, it matches:
- Denver-Fort Wayne (157)
- North Dakota State-Oral Roberts (145)
- Youngstown State-IUPUI (150)
You can create your own betting systems, and get our PRO systems that match six other games, by signing up for a trial of Bet Labs here.
Sharp Money Indicators
Each day, we’ll highlight one game from our sharp report page that has multiple indicators of sharp action. I couldn’t resist getting the UC Santa Barbara logo in there.
UC Riverside, which is catching seven points at home against the Gauchos after losing four consecutive games by at least 13, has picked up reverse line movement and contrarian indicators.
UCR lost by eight at UCSB in early January, covering the the 12-point spread.
