With the NFL and College Football winding down, it is time to jump into College Basketball on a more consistent basis. On our Youtube channel Bettor in Green, Ethan and I have a weekly CBB show called Getting Technical where we breakdown the biggest games of the week.
Make sure you check out those episodes as well, but today I have a couple plays that aren't big enough to make it on the show, but I think there is value in both of these bets! Enjoy and good luck if tailing!
Iowa (+6) @ #21 Wisconsin
Big Ten play is in full swing tonight as Iowa (8-5) traveks to #21 Wisconsin (9-3). Wisconsin is 6-1 at home this year and are a 6-point favoirte against the Hawkeyes. The total is set at 152.5.
BET: IOWA +6
I look at betting percentages for almost every bet I make, and I love to fade the public side, and tail where I believe the sharp money is at.
Wisconsin, according to DraftKings data is getting 83% of the bets on the spread, but if you follow the money, you will see there is a much larger percentage on Iowa. Depending on where you look for money %, Iowa is by far the favorite.
This means we have a large amount of bets on Wisconsin at the -6, but these are not large $ bets. The big bets, although few, are on Iowa, and you always have to follow the big money in this industry! Give me Iowa to cover!!!
#1 Purdue @ Maryland (+6.5)
The top ranked Boilermakers (12-1) travel to a very tough environment in College Park to take on a gritty Maryland (9-4) team. Purdue is a 6.5-point favorite on the road, and the total is at 141.5.
BET: PUR/MD u141.5
Purdue is one of the highest scoring teams in the country, and a majority of their games' totals are set much higher. It is way too obvious to take a much smaller than normal Purdue total and to take the over. This is solidified by a large amount of public money coming in on the over.
Once again, the sharps are all over the under. A whopping 86% of the money is on the under in this game according to Pikkit.
People are forgetting just how tough it is to play at Maryland, and also are forgetting that Big Ten matchups usually result in lower scoring games (unless you're Iowa). Give me this under, and it is my favorite play of the day!
