- Sports Insights' Bet Signals reveal which way the smart money is going.
With Panthers-Steelers, Wake Forest-NC State and Evansville-Illinois all taking place on the same night, I hope you’ve got at least a three-TV setup available to you this evening.
All right, so maybe you won’t be watching (it’s on BTN2Go+ for anyone who has access to that or knows what it is), but that doesn’t mean there’s no value to be had on tonight’s most heavily bet college basketball matchup — according to sharp bettors, at least.
Illinois opened as a 14-point favorite, and is now listed at -14.5, but it’s been the total that’s drawn the attention of wiseguys.

After opening at 142 at Bookmaker, this over/under is up to 148 thanks to sharp action on the over.
Four Sports Insights Bet Signals have been triggered on the over, indicating four instances of market-wide line movement caused by sharp bettors.
The over has also accounted for 75% of dollars on the total despite 64% of bets, meaning bigger wagers — more likely to be from sharps — are behind it.
This matchup isn’t likely to get much attention from recreational bettors, but wiseguys are expecting a high-scoring game.
