- Sharps have been hitting tonight's ACC Championship over/under since it opened at the start of the week.
- On Saturday morning, another wave of smart money hit the total, though this time it came on the opposite side.
Despite its shorter slate, Conference Championship Saturday hasn’t disappointed in the amount of sharp action it’s drawn. Just about every game has seen a line shaped by pro bettors in some form or another.
Where this weekend’s card has lacked a bit, however, is in attracting one-sided sharp action. In other words, most games have seen smart money hit both sides of the same bet at varying numbers.
There have been a couple games — the Big 12 and Big Ten Championships, namely — that have sharps in agreement, but most other matchups have seen two-way action … like the ACC Championship Game.

With an opening total of 53 now up to 56.5, it would certainly seem like the over is the side drawing sharper bettors. And while that wouldn’t be an incorrect assumption, it doesn’t quite tell the whole story.

Early in the week (between Monday and Thursday), three Sports Insights Bet Signals did reveal separate instances of sharp action hitting the over at lines of 53, 55 and 56. Only one move on the under was triggered over that time.
As a result, this line reached as high as 58 entering Saturday … which is when sharps decided it had moved too much.
On Saturday morning, another two Bet Signals hit the total, though this time they both came down on the under (at 58 and 57.5), and sent the total back down to a consensus 56.5.
As it stands at the time of writing, this over is on pace to be the most popular bet on the entire Saturday slate. Eighty-four percent of bets have landed on this over, which makes the recent line fall even more significant.
