  • Wiseguys are betting three college basketball games on Tuesday night, headlined by Iowa State-Baylor (7 p.m. ET on ESPNews).
  • Sharps are also getting down on North Carolina-NC State (9 p.m. ET on ESPN) and Purdue-Michigan State (9 p.m. on ESPN2).
  • Using the tools available at The Action Network, we analyze how the pros are betting each game.

With Clemson’s epic National Championship win over Alabama now in the books, sharp and recreational bettors alike have turned the page on college football. We still have a month left of NFL playoffs, but for all intents and purposes, it’s officially basketball season.

After examining today’s massive 27-game college basketball slate using the betting tools available at Sports Insights and The Action Network, I’ve identified three big games that the wiseguys are targeting on Tuesday night, with one starting at 7, and two tipping off at 9 p.m. ET.

Betting Terms to Know

Steam Move: Sudden, drastic and uniform line movement across the market caused by an overload of sharp action from respected players.

Reverse Line Movement: When the betting line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. It’s a top smart money indicator.

Line Freeze: When one side is getting heavy betting, but the line won’t budge, indicating sharp liability on the other side.

Juice: The tax or commission that bettors must pay sportsbooks in order for them to accept your wager. A -115 juice means a bettor would have to wager $115 to win $100.
