Monday is a relatively light day in the sports betting world. We have Redskins-Eagles, seven NBA games and only five college basketball contests.
While recreational bettors are focusing almost exclusively on Monday Night Football and NBA, wiseguys have quietly gotten down on an overlooked college hoops game: Rutgers at Wisconsin (8 p.m. ET).
After breaking down the data using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed which side the sharps are focusing on in this Big Ten conference showdown.
Betting Terms to Know
Steam Move: Sudden, drastic and uniform line movement across the market caused by an overload of sharp action from respected players.
Reverse Line Movement: When the betting line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. It’s a top smart money indicator.
Line Freeze: When one side is getting heavy betting, but the line won’t budge, indicating sharp liability on the other side.
Juice: The tax or commission that bettors must pay sportsbooks in order for them to accept your wager. A -115 juice means a bettor would have to wager $115 to win $100.
