College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bears are 6-0 ATS in their last six games following a straight up loss. Central Arkansas is 5-1 ATS in its last six Wednesday games.
The Hoosiers are 4-1 ATS in their last five Wednesday games. Indiana is 1-4 ATS in its last five home games.
I'm taking some underdogs today and this is no exception as the Hoosiers are coming off a narrow rivalry victory and are a prime candidate for a letdown. Central Arkansas isn't very good, but I think it can take advantage of the situation and stay within the number.
