  • Over 50 college basketball games are listed with lines on Saturday.
  • As evidenced by betting percentages and Sports Insights' Bet Signals, sharps have focused in on three.

Saturday’s college basketball slate brings with it seemingly endless betting opportunities. Over 50 games are listed with lines — more if you count added games — including 15 featuring ranked teams. But it’s not necessarily the intrigue of a matchup that draws sharps’ attention.

With start times ranging from 6 to 10 p.m. ET, the three games seeing the most sharp action tonight are among the more obscure matchups on the slate. Let’s take a look.

Illinois Chicago at Colorado

6 p.m. ET

Sharp angle: Illinois Chicago (moved from +12 to +10.5)

For the second time in less than a week, Illinois Chicago has found itself on the Sharp Report.

In tonight’s matchup with Colorado, UIC has drawn only 29% of bets, which is easy to understand when you see that Colorado has just one loss to the Flames’ five.

This line, however, has fallen from +12 to +10.5.

The small minority behind Illinois Chicago has accounted for a whopping 86% of dollars wagered, which not only puts liability on the underdog but indicates that bigger bets — the ones more likely to be made by sharps — are also taking the points.

UIC has also triggered three Sports Insights Bet Signals — signs of market-wide line movement that come from sharp action.
