Okay, now it’s March.
With the rest of the major conferences joining the ACC in tournament season, Wednesday offers 34 tourney matchups with tip times ranging from 11:30 a.m. to the 11:30 p.m. ET.
Of course, casual bettors are going to flock to the idea of betting on games throughout the workday, but as you’d expect, they aren’t the only ones putting action on today’s slate.
Sharps, too, are finding value Wednesday, and they’re starting with the ACC’s noon tip-off: Miami vs. Clemson.
Clemson vs. Miami Odds, Pick
The spread in this game hasn’t offered much in the sense of unusual betting activity. Yes, it has moved a bit since opening (Clemson has gone from -3 to -4.5), but the Tigers have been the popular side, generating nearly 70% of bets, and there’s been no indication that sharps have had anything to do with the move.
They have, however, caused an interesting adjustment to the total.
Depending on timing and book, this number opened anywhere between 132 and 133.5, and as is often the case, the public has sided with the over, not looking to root for a defensive game while sitting in their cubicles. Sixty-five percent of bettors have taken the over.

Despite that support, oddsmakers have actually brought the number down to 131/131.5.
As you could’ve probably guessed, sharps have been behind that move. Two Sports Insights Bet Signals — which track and record instances of smart money hitting the market in real time — have been triggered on the under at 132, explaining why oddsmakers have felt the need to move away from the popular side.
On top of that, the 35% backing of the under has accounted for 54% of actual money being wagered, meaning under bettors are making the bigger bets — the ones more likely to come from sharps.
