  • Sharps are betting Wednesday's college basketball matchup between Rider and UMass (7 p.m. ET).
  • Using The Action Network's tools, we examine how smart money is moving this betting line.

Wednesday’s college basketball slate is truly one that only bettors can love. Siena vs. Yale leads the 39-game schedule in betting tickets, showing just how ugly tonight’s slate is.

Ticket counts are unimpressive across all 39 games, but that doesn’t mean these games aren’t offering value.

Casual bettors are clearly much more interested in both of tonight’s MACtion matchups, but sharps aren’t completely deterred from college hoops.

In fact, Rider vs. UMass is attracting so much attention from professional bettors that oddsmakers have already made multiple adjustments to this line.

Let’s look at where smart money is landing in this matchup.

Rider vs. UMass Sharp Report

Seventy-two percent of spread bettors are laying the points with Massachusetts, but wiseguys have instead targeted the over/under.

Action on the Rider vs. UMass total is relatively split, with a small majority (54%) of bets hitting the over. However, those tickets account for 87% of the money.

In addition, Sports Insights’ Bet Signals have triggered two steam moves on the over at lines of 146.5 and 149.5, telling us that big wagers from respected bettors are undoubtedly the reason for the movement up to the current consensus line of 150.
