Recreational bettors often target games that they’ll be watching on TV.
We’ve all heard the terms “action” and “skin in the game” and understand that many bettors want something on the line when watching a game, especially if it doesn’t involve one of their favorite teams.
However, professionals who win over the long-term wager solely for value, and today’s Montana State vs. Portland college basketball matchup is a perfect example.
Is it on TV? Nope. But has it caught the eye of sharp bettors? Absolutely.
College Basketball Picks: Montana State vs. Portland
Montana State opened as a 2-point favorite over Portland and wiseguys immediately hit that number.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals are reporting a Steam Move on the Bobcats, showing that smart money flooded the road favorites at -2 and forced oddsmakers to adjust that spread to -3 and -3.5 (click here for the latest college basketball odds).
As is typically the case, sportsbooks are heavy on the side that’s attracting sharp action, which is Montana State today.
The Bobcats are landing just 29% of the spread tickets, but that small minority of bets represents 83% of the money wagered.
Considering the line movement we’ve seen so far and the lopsided money splits, there’s little doubt that Montana State has been a popular landing spot for wiseguy action so far today.
