  • Professional bettors are targeting two college basketball games on Wednesday night: Columbia-Boston College (7 p.m. ET, ACC Network) and LSU-Houston (9 p.m. ET, ESPN2).
  • Using the tools at The Action Network, we analyze how wiseguys are betting both games.

We’re 24 hours away from Thursday Night Football and 72 hours away from college football bowl action. But that doesn’t mean sharps and squares are going light tonight.

With 11 NBA games and eight college basketball games on tap, Wednesday is all about betting hoops.

After breaking down the college basketball board using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed two games that sharps are focusing on: Columbia vs. Boston College (7 p.m. ET) and LSU vs. Houston (9 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.
