For sharp bettors, Saturday looks to be a day for totals. Thanks to our PRO Report feature, we’ve already been able to clearly tell how they’re betting numbers in games like Wisconsin-Michigan, Baylor-Texas Tech and Fresno State-Utah state, to name a few.
Now we’re getting a look into their take on Louisville vs. Virginia, and if you’ve noticed a trend through the games mentioned above, you can apply it directly to the sharp pick here.
Louisville vs. Virginia PRO Report
It’s another Saturday under for sharp bettors, which has been helped to light by a bet-vs.-money discrepancy. And according to our projections, there’s still plenty of value left.
It took until gameday for sharps to really take a stand, but they have.
They’ve triggered a pair of Sports Insights Bet Signals — which track and record instances of market movement caused specifically by sharp action — on the under just today, making three in total to help explain why this line has switched directions from 67 to 66 despite 60% of bets landing on the over.
Sharp Action edge: Under
While the over may be drawing the majority of bettors, though, it can’t say the same about the actual money split.
An impressive 89% of the money landing on this total has hit the under, which obviously is going to catch the attention of sportsbooks simply from a monetary perspective. However, it also tells us that the under is drawing much bigger bets. And what kind of bettors are most likely to be making those bets?
Big Money edge: Under
Right in line with the sharps’ opinions, our model projects this game with a total of 61.4, giving a few points of wiggle room (read: value) to the current line.
