Tuesday College Basketball Sharp Report

Bettors have another busy Tuesday on tap, with 6 NHL games and roughly 30 College Basketball games to get down on. For a full breakdown of Tuesday's betting action, be sure to tune in to the VSiN Market Insights Podcast with Josh Appelbaum. It will be posted by 2:40 p.m. ET. I'll also be co-hosting Betting Across America with Mike Pritchard from 3 to 4 p.m. ET
In the meantime, here are a trio of College Basketball games receiving sharp action tonight...
7 p.m. ET: Charleston at Northeastern
Both of these Colonial Athletic Conference rivals are looking to get back on track and snap losing skids. Charleston (14-12 SU, 12-13-1 ATS) has dropped two straight and just fell to Towson 80-77, pushing as 3-point home dogs. Similarly, Northeastern (7-19 SU, 8-17-1 ATS) has lost three straight and is just 1-15 over their last 16 games. Northeastern just lost to Hofstra 76-73, covering as 11.5-point road dogs. This line opened with Northeastern listed as a 1-point home favorite. Sharp money isn't outsmarting itself on this one. Wiseguys are fading Northeastern and backing Charleston, flipping the Cougars from a 1-point dog to a 1-point favorite. Charleston holds a big edge on offense (77 PPG vs 65 PPG) and rebounding (41 RPG vs 32 RPG). Ken Pom has Charleston winning by two points (73-71). He has Charleston ranked 175th and Northeastern 261st. 
8 p.m. ET: Villanova at Connecticut
This primetime showdown features two ranked heavyweights battling for Big East supremacy. Villanova (21-6 SU, 14-12-1 ATS) is ranked 8th and has won five straight, most recently beating Georgetown 74-66 but failing to cover as 19.5-point home favorites. Meanwhile, Connecticut (19-7 SU, 12-14 ATS) is ranked 21st and has won three straight, most recently beating Xavier 72-61 and covering as 6.5-point home favorites. This line opened with Connecticut listed as a short 1-point home favorite. The public thinks the wrong team is favored and they're loading up on trendy dog Villanova, who is ranked higher. However, despite this lopsided support we've seen the line move further to Connecticut (-1 to -2), signaling respected money laying the chalk with the contrarian home favorite Huskies. When two ranked teams face off this season, the favorite is roughly 57% ATS). UConn holds an advantage on the glass (42 RPG vs 35 RPG). UConn is 12-2 at home this season. Ken Pom has Connecticut winning this game by one point (68-67). UConn is -130 on the moneyline. 
11 p.m. ET: UNLV at Nevada
This late night Mountain West clash includes a pair of teams riding winning streaks. UNLV (16-11 SU, 12-14 ATS) has won two straight and just upset Colorado State 72-51, winning outright as 4.5-point home dogs. Similarly, Nevada (12-13 SU, 8-16 ATS) has won three straight and just crushed San Jose State 90-60, easily covering as 8-point road favorites. This line opened with UNLV listed as a short 1-point road favorite. Wiseguys have jumped on the home team, flipping Nevada from a 1-point dog to a 2-point home favorite. Nevada holds the edge in shooting (45% vs 43%). This is a revenge game for Nevada, who lost to UNLV 69-58 on February 1st. Ken Pom has UNLV winning by one point (75-74), so that means the market is more bullish on Nevada tonight than the advanced analytics.
