College Basketball Sharp Betting Pick: Houston vs. Georgia Tech
Houston opened as an 8-point favorite and 62% of bets are backing the Cougars.
However, while Georgia Tech is garnering just 38% of the spread action, those bets account for an overwhelming 85% of money wagered, revealing that the biggest bets are hitting the underdog Yellow Jackets.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals triggered a Steam Move at Georgia Tech +8, confirming that wiseguy action is responsible for the lopsided money splits.
With heavy money from respected bettors hitting the Jackets, oddsmakers have had no choice but to drop this spread to +7.5, with some books down to +7 as well.
