On what’s probably the best college hoops slate of the year to this point, smart money has been flowing steadily across the board, though a handful of games have stuck out as the pros’ favorites, including Duke-UNC.

Using the tools at The Action Network, let’s take a look at how sharps are betting the history rivalry, along with three other Saturday spreads.

Odds as of Saturday at 11:45 a.m. ET. Check out PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150). No strings attached. No rollover required.

Arkansas vs. Missouri

3:30 p.m. ET | SEC Network

A simple comparison of records has made this matchup an easy one to pick for most bettors.

Arkansas comes into this game at 16-6 to Missouri’s 10-12, and with just 2.5 points separating the teams to open the betting market, 76% of spread tickets have landed on the Razorbacks.

Those tickets, however, have accounted for just 38% of actual money, which means bigger bettors — the ones more likely to be sharps — are backing Mizzou.
