Tuesday’s college basketball slate provides the perfect example of big games vs. big value.

But which Tuesday game are expert and professional bettors keying in on?

How about a Horizon League conference tournament matchup between Detroit and Northern Kentucky!

You may not know much about these teams, but wiseguys surely do, and thanks to our College Basketball PRO Report, we know exactly which bet they’re making.

College Basketball Picks: Detroit vs. Northern Kentucky

Sharp Action

While sharp action hasn’t been overwhelming at this point, Action Labs’ Bet Signals are reporting a smart money indicator on the Titans early Monday morning, citing one instance in which oddsmakers were forced to react to respected bettors.

Big Money

What’s even more interesting is the vast bets-vs.-dollars discrepancy we’re seeing thus far on the Detroit vs. Northern Kentucky spread.

Seventy-nine percent of bets are laying the short number with the Norse, yet the Titans have landed 94% of the loot.

This leads us to the conclusion that the largest-sized wagers have come in on that side of tonight’s game.

Model Projection

So, why are big bettors all over Detroit tonight?

Our College Basketball PRO Projections make this spread Titans -1.5, which translates to a B+ graded 4.4% betting edge.

Detroit should be favored against Northern Kentucky, and that’s exactly why it is a smart bet as a 1.5-point underdog.
