This one was fun to watch.

Catching every single college basketball line move on a Saturday that has 142 games is impossible, but sometimes you happen to be watching the odds screen at just the right moment — and that’s exactly what happened this morning.

While scanning Action Labs’ college basketball live odds page, I was in prime position to see today’s North Texas vs. Louisiana Tech matchup light up across the board in reaction to sharp bettors steaming the spread.

Steam refers to sudden, uniform line movement across the market and is often the result of bettors with the respect and resources to move odds getting down on the same side of the same game at multiple sportsbooks, all at once.

And when it comes to Saturday’s North Texas vs. Louisiana Tech college basketball matchup, that’s exactly what they did.

North Texas vs. Louisiana Tech Pick

Louisiana Tech opened as a 2.5-point favorite over North Texas at most sportsbooks and professional bettors have already jumped all over the Bulldogs in this matchup.

As I mentioned above, sharps steamed Louisiana Tech at that number, pushing the spread to a consensus line of -3.5.

And, as always, be sure to shop for the best line if tailing the pros in this game.

For example, the North Texas vs. Louisiana Tech spread has settled at -3.5 at most shops, however, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering it at even-money as opposed to the -110 vig in most other spots.

PRO Report Pick: Louisiana Tech -3.5
