Tail the sharpest bettors in the world

Thursday’s college basketball action gets underway with a 12 p.m. ET tip between Central Florida and Temple.

Noon games on a weekday in the middle of January aren’t the most popular spots for recreational bettors, but long-term winners don’t concern themselves with start times or even if they’ll be watching — all that matters is value.

And according to our College Basketball PRO Report, today’s Central Florida vs. Temple matchup has attracted plenty of attention from sharp bettors.

Sharp Action

The Central Florida vs. Temple over/under opened at 134 and has climbed to 136 (click here for live college basketball odds) at the time of writing.

Line movement alone isn’t always a sign of professional betting action, but in this case, it tells an accurate story.

Action Labs’ Bet Signals are are reporting two separate instances of smart money flowing on the Central Florida vs. Temple over, which coincides with the market movement we’ve seen so far.

Big Money

Sixty-five percent of bettors have played this over, so that’s certainly the popular side of this total in terms of number of bets.

The Action Network’s college basketball betting percentages show that there’s even more lopsided money splits, with 97% of dollars wagered on the total hitting the over as well.

With both sharp bettors and liability building on the over, oddsmakers have had no choice but to adjust this number up from its opener.

In fact, there are still a handful of books at 135.5, so be sure to shop for the best line before grabbing this over.
