For an updated 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 3 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, let's take a look at where the smart money is leaning for tonight's NIT matchups...

7 p.m. ET: St. Bonaventure vs Xavier

This is the NIT semifinals and will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York City. St Bonaventure (23-9 SU, 15-17 ATS) is coming off a 52-51 win over Virginia, winning outright as 2.5-point dogs. Prior to that, the Bonnies beat Oklahoma 70-68 and brushed aside Colorado 76-68. Now they face Xavier (21-13 SU, 15-19 ATS), who just squeaked by Vanderbilt 75-73 but failed to cover as 2.5-point favorites. Previously, Xavier beat Florida 72-56 and took down Cleveland State 72-68. 

This line opened with St. Bonaventure listed as a 2-point neutral site favorite. Respected money has grabbed the points with Xavier, dropping the line from 2 to 1.5. Ken Pom has Xavier winning the game by two points (74-72), which provides actionable value on Xavier getting points based on the advanced analytics. We've also seen some under money show up, dropping the total from 140.5 to 139.5. Dogs are 17-11 ATS in the NIT thus far. NIT teams with line movement in their favor are 14-8 ATS. 

9:30 p.m. ET: Washington State vs Texas A&M

This NIT semifinal clash also takes place at Madison Square Garden. Washington State (22-14 SU, 16-20 ATS) just upset BYU 77-58, winning outright as 2.5-point dogs. The Cougars also beat SMU 75-63 and edged Santa Clara 63-50. Meanwhile, Texas A&M (26-12 SU, 21-15-1 ATS) just crushed Wake Forest 67-52, easily covering as 2.5-point favorites. The Aggies also beat Oregon 75-60 and dismissed Alcorn State 74-62. 

This line opened with Texas A&M listed as a short 1.5-point neutral site favorite. Sharps seem to be leaning toward laying the chalk with Texas A&M, as this line has ticked up to -2 at some shops. Ken Pom has Washington State winning by one point (69-68), which goes against the market movement. The total hasn't budged off the opener of 133. Both teams are 3-0 to the under in the NIT. Washington State is 21-13-2 to the under this season. Texas A&M is 23-14 to the over.
