- Sports Insights' Bet Signals reveal which way the smart money is going in these three matchups.
Across all sports, Tuesday’s slate of games hasn’t been attracting an especially high number of bets. But despite the lack of high-profile matchups, sharps have still found a few spots holding value on tonight’s college basketball slate.
Ranging from 6:30 to 8 p.m. ET tip-offs, three games in particular have caught the attention of wiseguys, beginning with the most anticipated college hoops matchup of the night.

Wisconsin @ Xavier
6:30 p.m. ET | FS1
Sharp angle: Xavier (moved from +1 to -1)
Tonight’s most heavily bet college hoops matchup also happens to be the one drawing the most sharp action.
Wisconsin has held a slight edge in the betting percentage department throughout the day, attracting 53% of bets and 57% of dollars to this point.
Based on those numbers alone, you’d expect this line to either remain stagnant or move slightly toward the Badgers.
The line did, in fact, initially move in that direction. For a short time, Wiscy was listed around the market as a two-point favorite.
Since then, however, it’s jumped the fence to Xavier -1, suggesting that sharp bettors have made an impact.
Sure enough, Xavier has drawn four Sports Insights Bet Signals — indications of sharp action causing market-wide line movement. That’s more than any other team on Tuesday’s slate.
Drake @ Colorado
8 p.m. ET | Pac-12 Network
Sharp angle: Under (moved from 149.5 to 148.5)
The under has drawn 62% of bets and 63% of dollars, and the total has fallen a point from its opener at Pinnacle, but the most telling indication of sharp action has once again come from Sports Insights’ Bet Signals.
The under has attracted three signals, indicating three instances in which the entire market reacted to sharp action hitting the under.
Arkansas Little Rock @ Tennessee State
8 p.m. ET | ESPN+
Sharp angle: Over (moved from 138.5 to 143)
In an almost identical situation, this over has drawn the majority of bets and dollars — 62% and 57%, respectively — and sharp bettors do seem to be among that majority.
The line movement in this case has been far more revealing, as the number has moved five full points from its opener.
The over has drawn five Bet Signals contributing to the move. They’ve come at numbers ranging from 136 to 141.5, which suggests that this total may have hit its ceiling.
