  • The Kansas Jayhawks are currently listed as 2.5-point road favorites against the TCU Horned Frogs on Monday night (9 p.m. ET, ESPN).
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we explain on how professionals quickly jumped on the early line value, and why following the sharps now may not be the smart choice for bettors.

I know, that headline is quite redundant. Professional bettors — those able to overcome the vig to win over the long haul — will bet anything if the price is right.

Remember, sharps bet numbers and not teams, so it doesn’t matter who is playing as long as the line is right.

Tonight’s Kansas-TCU game is a perfect example of how professional action can take advantage of a bad line, then leave the worst of it for the rest of the market.

Using the tools at The Action Network, let’s take a look at how smart money has already shaped the Kansas-TCU line and, spoiler alert, I don’t think the wiseguys are done.
