It’s NFL Week 15, so of course casual sports bettors (and fantasy football players) are all-in on Sunday’s slate of games.
However, let’s not forget that college hoops is now running strong, highlighted by today’s 27-game slate.
College basketball gets underway at 12 p.m. ET, with No. 9 Creighton visiting UConn, and according to our PRO Betting Systems this matchup is one that smart bettors should target.
College Basketball Picks: Creighton vs. UConn
Casual bettors don’t like backing teams that have lost them money, especially when playing teams with winning records against the spread (ATS) — and this is the crux of our Poor ATS vs. Good ATS Teams PRO System.
Teams in the spot are 1,736-1,405-71 (55%) ATS since 2005, and UConn is a match for the game against Creighton.
Unsurprisingly, just 18% of bettors have been willing to back the Huskies and the points. However, based on the criteria in this system, there is value taking a contrarian position with UConn and the points.
PRO System Pick: UConn +3.5
