A 15-game college basketball slate two days before the Super Bowl isn’t on the minds of most bettors, and the ticket counts reflect that.
Each of Friday’s games is showing paltry betting numbers as casual bettors are spending their time breaking down 49ers vs. Chiefs — the color of Gatorade, Demi Lovato’s national anthem history, and heads vs. tails.
Yet, each of these 15 matchups does offer the opportunity for betting value, and sharps are happy to jump in even if the masses aren’t.
Odds as of Friday at 8 a.m. ET and via FanDuel, where Action Network users get a risk-free bet up to $500.
Harvard vs. Pennsylvania is the perfect example as smart money already has this point spread on the move.
Harvard vs. Pennsylvania Sharp College Basketball Betting Pick
Harvard opened as a 1.5-point favorite and is garnering 84% of the early action.
Pro bettors, on the other hand, are hitting Pennsylvania.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals are reporting three smart money indicators on the Quakers — two at +1.5 and another at a pick’em.
With wiseguy action consistently hitting one side of this game and very little public money to offset it, oddsmakers have flipped Penn from a 1.5-point underdog to a 1-point favorite.
