College basketball provides fans and bettors with a solid 48-game slate tonight, headlined by Gonzaga vs. Texas A&M and West Virginia vs. Pittsburgh. Unsurprisingly, Duke is also attracting plenty of action despite being a 28.5-point favorite against Georgia State.
But with such a deep schedule of games, professionals have plenty of options from which to choose.
And while casual bettors are piling on Friday’s nationally-televised matchups, sharps are getting down on one of tonight’s smallest college basketball games: UC Davis vs. Arkansas State.

UC Davis vs. Arkansas State Sharp Report
Arkansas State opened as a 4-point favorite in this matchup, which is exactly where the line sits at the time of writing.
However, a look at the line history shows that the point spread actually ballooned to -5, and that’s when sharps struck.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals are reporting two smart money indicators on UC Davis, confirming that pros bought back the early movement, forcing the spread back to the opener.
It’s important to note that SI’s Bet Signals have remained quiet at +4, so sharps have yet to make any kind of play at the current number.
