- With its many teams, college basketball provides some of the best betting opportunities for sharp bettors, as sportsbooks are forced to keep up with small-name schools just the same as the blue bloods, and often aren't as good at it.
- Montana taking on Southern Utah tonight (9 p.m. ET) is a perfect example of just that.

There are two key advantages to betting on college basketball.
First, the sheer number of teams means that oddsmakers have the tall task of keeping up with even the smallest programs in order to open accurate lines for every game.
This provides a huge edge as bettors, especially professionals, only need to wager on the matchups offering value, and remember, winning bets on the smallest schools pay out just the same as winners between blue bloods.
Second, the massive volume of college basketball games provides huge sample sizes when looking for historically-profitable angles, which is one the most important characteristics of a winning, data-driven betting system.
Tonight’s Montana vs. Southern Utah college basketball game is the perfect combination of these two advantages, with one side attracting wiseguy action while also fitting a PRO Betting System with a 55% against-the-spread (ATS) win rate over a sample of almost 3,200 games.
