  • Wiseguys are betting three college basketball games on Wednesday night, headlined by Texas Tech-West Virginia (7 p.m. ET on ESPNU).
  • Sharps are also getting down on Harvard-North Carolina (7 p.m. ET on ESPN2) and Texas-Kansas State (9 p.m. ET on ESPNU).
  • Using the tools available at The Action Network, we analyze how the pros are betting each game.

With New Year’s Day having come and gone, we sadly won’t have another bowl game to sweat until the National Championship on Monday. In the meantime, wiseguys will be setting their sights on pro and college hoops.

After examining today’s 27-game college basketball slate using the betting tools available at Sports Insights and The Action Network, I’ve identified three games that pros are betting on Wednesday night, with two starting at 7 p.m., and one 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.
