The first weekend of the NFL postseason, as you’d imagine, is of pretty major interest to sports bettors. But for those looking for action before the 4:35 p.m. ET Bills-Texans matchup kicks off, or bettors who simply look for value in any possible game — a category into which sharps fall — Saturday’s massive college basketball slate looks to be offering a couple worthy bets.

Sharps have spent the morning making moves all across the board, and two games have stood out as being especially big targets for pro action.

Bettors — at least the early ones — don’t seem to have a clear consensus on this spread. Since opening as a 9-point favorite Memphis has essentially split the ticket count with Georgia, taking in 51% of bets.

Big bettors, on the other hand, have made their opinion clear.
