In the meantime, let's discuss several College Basketball games receiving sharp action tonight...
7 p.m. ET: LSU at Texas A&M
Both of these SEC rivals are struggling lately and looking to snap prolonged losing streaks. LSU (16-7 SU, 14-9 ATS) has lost three straight and just fell to Vanderbilt 75-66, losing outright as 3-point road favorites. Similarly, Texas A&M (15-8 SU, 11-10-1 ATS) has dropped six straight and just lost to Missouri 70-66, losing outright as 9.5-point home favorites. This line opened with LSU listed as a short 2-point road favorite. The public is backing LSU and looking to fade the Aggies, yet this line has fallen from 2 to 1.5. This signals sharp reverse line movement on the home dog Aggies plus the points. Texas A&M is 10-3 at home this season. LSU is 2-5 on the road. Ken Pom has LSU winning by three points (67-64).
9 p.m. ET: Utah State at Wyoming
This late night Mountain West clash features two of the best in the conference facing off. Utah State (15-9 SU, 13-10 ATS) has won five straight games and just crushed UNLV 90-75, covering as 9-point home favorites. Wyoming (19-3 SU, 13-7-1 ATS) has also won four straight and just upset Fresno State 61-59, winning outright as 4.5-point road dogs. This line opened with Wyoming listed as a short 3-point home favorite. The public is happy to lay the points with Wyoming at home after their big win, yet we've seen this line fall from 3 to 2. Some shops are inching to 1.5. This signals respected money grabbing the points with road dog Utah State. Ken Pom has Wyoming winning by three points (74-71).
9 p.m. ET: Illinois at Purdue
Both of these Big Ten heavyweights and ranked and riding win streaks. Illinois (17-5 SU, 11-11 ATS) is ranked 13th and has won four straight, most recently beating Indiana 74-57 and covering as 2-point road favorites. On the flip side, Purdue (20-3 SU, 12-11 ATS) is ranked 3rd and has won five straight, most recently beating Michigan 82-76 but failing to cover as 9.5-point home favorites. This line opened with Purdue listed as a 6.5-point home favorite. Wiseguys seem to think the line is a bit high and have grabbed the hook with Illinois, dropping the line from 6.5 to 6. Ken Pom has Purdue winning by five points (78-73), which means Illinois still has some actionable value based on the analytics. This is a revenge spot for Illinois. These teams met back on January 17th and Purdue won in double-overtime 96-88 at Illinois.
