In today’s NCAAB sports marketplace, one game caught our analysts’ eyes in particular. Normally, the public loves favorites. Today, however, in one of the heaviest-bet games of the day, the public currently prefers Michigan over Ohio State – with two out of three bets taking Michigan as 16-point underdogs.
It looks like the public doesn’t think much of #1 Ohio State. It’s rare to see the public back a big underdog, but public perception can often yield contrarian value.
