Friday’s VCU-UCF NCAA Tournament Round of 64 matchup is not only interesting for those filling out March Madness brackets, but it’s also attracting plenty of activity from college basketball bettors.

In fact, professional bettors — also known as “sharps” — keyed in on this game in the 12 hours following the release of the 2019 NCAA Tournament bracket.

However, since the early line movement, smart money has started hitting the opposite side of this matchup, moving the point spread once again and revealing how professional bettors see this game playing out.

Let’s break down the action.
