  • Sharp bettors are affecting lines in four of tonight's college basketball matchups, including UNC-Kentucky (5:15 p.m. ET on CBS).
  • Sports Insights' Bet Signals and betting market percentages help reveal which way the smart money is going.

Yesterday we had a winter solstice. Today we get a sports equinox.

Five major sports leagues are in action on Saturday, and of those five, one offers bettors over 60 games with lines from which to choose.

That would, of course, be college basketball, and with such a heavy slate being offered, it should come as no surprise to see at least a few games drawing some sharp action.

Sharps enjoyed a 3-1 Friday night, and today they’ve targeted four games with start times ranging from 4:30 to 7 p.m. ET, including UNC-Kentucky.

Northern Colorado vs. Rider

4:30 p.m. ET (at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas)

Sharp angle: Northern Colorado (moved from pk to -2.5)

With so many games taking place on Saturday, this one will surely fall through the weeds — at least for most public bettors.

As it stands now, Northern Colorado is seeing a slightly higher percentage of bets (53%), but that’s nowhere near enough to move a line 2.5 points all else equal.

All else is not equal, however, as sharps have been getting down on the Bears since late last night.

Two Sports Insights Bet Signals have been triggered on Northern Colorado since this line opened, though if you’re looking to tail this play, it’s worth noting that both moves came when the line was still a pick’em.

Also pushing this line toward Northern Colorado has been the significantly higher money percentage (80%), indicating that bigger, probably sharper players are backing the Bears.
