This is it folks. One of the best, and perhaps most underrated, weeks on the sports betting calendar.

Conference tournaments really heat up this week with wall-to-wall action starting on Tuesday. On Monday, bettors are still looking to dive into a 15-game slate, and we’ve broken down where the action is and where the lines are heading.

All betting data comes from our public betting page (ticket count is free, but money percentages are available only to EDGE subscribers). Betting trends are available for free in The Action Network app, while more advanced betting systems are available to Sports Insights subscribers via Bet Labs.

Most Public Sides

As of 4:30 p.m. ET. Minimum 800 bets tracked.

  1. North Dakota State -6.5 (88%) vs. Western Illinois
  2. Savannah State -7 (76%) vs. Delaware State
  3. Wofford -7 (76%) vs. UNC Greensboro
  4. Nebraska Omaha PK (72%) vs. IPFW
  5. Northern Kentucky -6 (68%) vs. Oakland

Biggest Betting Ticket/Money Discrepancies

We track both betting tickets on a given game and the percentage of money that’s been bet on each side. If there’s a big discrepancy, there’s likely some sharper, larger bets on the opposite side, though Monday is pretty quiet as contrarian plays go.

Here are the three biggest discrepancies for Monday night as of 4:30 p.m. ET. This data will change as we get closer to tipoffs. Minimum 800 bets.

San Diego (+4.5) vs. Saint Mary’s

  • 11:30 p.m. ET
  • 36% of tickets, 63% of money
  • 27% difference
  • Line move: San Diego +5 to +4.5

Green Bay (+5.5) vs. Wright State

  • 7 p.m. ET
  • 47% of tickets, 74% of money
  • 27% difference
  • Line move: Green Bay +6.5 to +5.5

Western Michigan (+9) vs. Central Michigan

  • 7 p.m. ET
  • 36% of tickets, 57% of money
  • 21% difference
  • Line move: WMU +10 to +9

Bet Labs Pro Trend

Over at Bet Labs, we’ve created historically profitable betting systems for every sport. Tonight, just three games match a system as of 4:30 p.m. ET:

Bet Labs savant John Ewing detailed a PRO system that fits Western Michigan +9 against Central Michigan in the opening round of the MAC Tournament. Ewing found that first-round favorites, especially big ones, are generally overvalued.

Sharp Money Indicators

Each day, we try to highlight one game from our sharp report page that has multiple indicators of sharp action.

As of 4:30 p.m. ET, Delaware +9.5 against Hofstra is one game that’s triggered sharp action, including a steam move. The line has dropped from +11, though, so it’s lost some value from those sharp moves.
