- Sharp bettors are affecting lines in two Tuesday college basketball matchups: Georgia Southern-UCF and Colorado-New Mexico.
- Sports Insights' Bet Signals and betting market percentages reveal which bets the pros are making.
A quick glance at Tuesday night’s college basketball lineup should be enough to tell that most casual bettors won’t be taking part in any college hoops bets.
Minus extra games added to the rotation, only four games are available to bet, but two have drawn significant attention from wiseguys. Georgia Southern-UCF and Colorado-New Mexico have both seen line moves caused by sharp action.

Georgia Southern @ Central Florida
7 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Georgia Southern (moved from +11.5 to +9.5)
Only 39% of bettors are taking the points with Georgia Southern as of writing (see live data here), yet the Eagles’ line has fallen two full points from its opener. That’s enough to reveal sharp action, but let’s dive into the details.
That 39% of bets have accounted for 80% of the money wagered, which means not only do sportsbooks have a liability on Georgia Southern, but the Eagles are drawing significantly bigger bets than UCF. Since sharps are more likely to be the ones making bigger wagers, that’s a pretty clear indication of sharp action.
On top of that, Sports Insights’ Bet Signals have been triggered twice on Georgia Southern, revealing at least two occurrences of market-wide line movement caused by wiseguy activity.
Colorado @ New Mexico
9 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: New Mexico (moved from +5 to +4.5)
While the point spread isn’t quite as high in this one, the betting activity is awfully similar.
Like Georgia Southern, New Mexico’s line has fallen despite receiving the minority of bets (30%). But once again, those bets have generated a significantly higher percentage of actual dollars being wagered on the spread (56%).
If that wasn’t enough, the Lobos have also drawn two Bet Signals of their own to help the line fall.
