  • Professionals are betting three college basketball games on Friday night, headlined by Arkansas-Texas (7 p.m. ET).
  • Wiseguys are also getting down on Southern Illinois-Kentucky (7 p.m. ET) and NC Greensboro-LSU (8 p.m. ET).

College Basketball is officially underway! Hallelujah!

Just like football (and NBA), college basketball is a predominantly spread and over/under sport. This means bettors must win 52.38% of their plays (assuming standard -110 juice) in order to break even. Anything above that is pure profit.

After analyzing Friday’s massive 35-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed three NCAAB bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 7 p.m. and 8 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.
