  • Sharps are getting down on three Monday college basketball games, headlined by Boise State-Creighton (7;30 p.m. ET).
  • Wiseguys are also loading up on Cal Poly-Washington State (9 p.m. ET) and Wyoming-Boston College (9 p.m. ET).
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how professionals are betting tonight's college basketball slate.

Average Joes hate betting Unders. Who can blame them? It’s no fun to root for bricks, blocked shots and shot clock violations. Life’s too short to bet unders. And the over always has a chance, right?

No, say the sharps. Wiseguys love unders because they can take advantage of public bias, get inflated lines and place themselves on the side of the house (which always wins).

After analyzing Monday’s massive 36-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed three NCAAB bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 7:30 p.m. and 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.
