  • Professional bettors are targeting two college basketball games on Monday night: SE Missouri State-Florida State (7 p.m. ET on ESPN3) and Pepperdine-Oregon State (10 p.m. ET on Pac-12 Network).
  • Using the tools at The Action Network, we analyze how wiseguys are betting both games.

Tonight, much of the betting world is laser focused on the big Saints-Panthers Monday Night Football showdown and a stacked 8-game NBA slate.

However, sharps aren’t ignoring college hoops. Wiseguys see value in an underrated 9-game board.

After consulting the betting tools available at Sports Insights and The Action Network, I’ve identified two games that pros are betting on Monday night: SE Missouri State-Florida State (7 p.m. ET) and Pepperdine-Oregon State (10 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.
