A wide array of afternoon college sports should make for an easier track through hump day, but it’s not just those looking for a midweek distraction that are betting on today’s matinee action.
Sharp bettors have already made some moves on the hardwood, hitting a noon ET tip between VCU and St. Joseph’s; and by the looks of it, they’re also finding some value on an early kickoff in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl between Wisconsin and Wake Forest.
Our PRO Report reveals how they’ve played the Wisconsin vs. Wake Forest over/under.

Wisconsin vs. Wake Forest Sharp Betting Pick
Sharps and big bettors — probably one and the same — have been landing on the under, pushing oddsmakers to drop this total as a result.
Overall, bettors are pretty close to split on this total. In fact, it’s actually the over holding a slight 53% edge in the popularity department. So on its own, the line movement away from that side should serve as a pretty strong hint of sharp action.
Sure enough, Action Labs confirms sharps to be the driving force in this line’s shift, triggering three Bet Signals — indicators of market movement caused specifically by sharp action — on the under.
Sharp Action edge: Under
While the over may be drawing more bettors, the under is dominating the distribution of actual money.
Its 47% backing has generated 90% of the loot as of writing. While I don’t expect that figure to remain quite so lopsided heading into kickoff, that discrepancy nonetheless reveals that the under is drawing much, much bigger bets.
… and which bettors are more likely to be making such bets? Sharps.
Big Money edge: Under
