Sports Marketplace – NCAA BB Edition 

Recapping Last Week

Marketwatch took a loss last edition when Kent State’s Rodriguez Sherman scored 18 points in the Golden Flashes 11-point win over Buffalo.

2010-11 NCAA BB Games to Watch: 4-4 (50%)* 

San Diego State (pk) over Connecticut

The Sweet Sixteen commences tonight and we’ve highlighted line value in the evening’s first game. After a spectacular run in the Big East Tournament, UConn continued their impressive play by blowing out Bucknell, followed by an 11-point victory over Cincinnati in the Round of 32.

Similarly, San Diego State has parlayed a conference tournament championship into success in the NCAA Tournament. After handling Northern Colorado with ease in Round 1, San Diego State topped Temple in double overtime, 71-64.

San Diego State opened as a 1-point favorite at CRIS and, with Kemba-Mania in full-swing, the public is fully behind the Huskies. According to Sports Insights’ Betting Trends data, Connecticut is currently receiving 65% of spread bets, 55% of moneyline bets and 70% of parlay wagers.

Even with the heavy public pounding, our indicators show sharp money falling on the Aztecs. Sports Insights’Betting Systems have triggered a Smart Money Play at WSEX (+4.56 units) and a Steam Move at 5Dimes (+21.02 units) on San Diego State, convincing us to fade a significant public favorite, follow the sharp money and take the Aztecs.
