College Basketball Sharp Betting Pick: Butler vs. DePaul
After an initial shakedown from its -2 opener, DePaul has been showing a few indicators of betting value.
While comparing openers to current lines can often provide some insight as to how sharps might be betting, in this case that method would prove misleading.
It wasn’t until DePaul had moved all the way across zero to +1 that sharps really made their move, as evidenced by two Bet Signals from Action Labs — triggered when market movement suggests sharp action — at that number. An ensuing Bet Signal at a pick’em helped bring the minus-sign back to the home side.
