Biggest Betting Ticket/Money Discrepancies

Bet Labs Pro Trend
Over at Bet Labs, we’ve created historically profitable betting systems for every sport. Tonight, there are six games that fit a profitable user-generated or PRO system, including this one:
Fade Top 5 Team in Conference Play
This system is pretty simple: bet against top 5 teams (by the AP Poll’s measure) in conference play if they’re favored by seven or fewer points. These teams are consistently overvalued, and against tougher competition, they fail to cover pretty often.
This system has gone 99-63-6 (61%) ATS since 2012. Virginia Tech +4.5 vs. Duke fits the system tonight.

Sharp Money Indicators
Each day, we’ll highlight one game from our sharp report page that has multiple indicators of sharp action.
Bettors are all over the MAC on Tuesday night, and Ball State has received contrarian support and seen reverse line movement to move from +1 to -1 at home against Toledo.
