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.
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.
