8 p.m. ET North Dakota at Omaha (-3, 145.5)

North Dakota (8-9) has lost five straight games and just fell to Northern Arizona 74-73. Meanwhile, Omaha (8-9) just saw their two-game winning streak come to an end, falling to Idaho State 63-62. This line opened with Omaha listed as a 3-point home favorite. The Omaha -3 is being juiced to -115, signaling a possible rise up to -3.5. Some shops have already risen to -3.5. Currently 83% of bets and 88% of money is laying the points with Omaha. Keep in mind this is a very low bet obscure game, so the bet split is likely to represent mostly sharp action as the public has no interest in this tiny game. Reading between the lines, all movement and liability is on home favorite Omaha. Ken Pom has Omaha winning by six points (74-68). He also has Omaha ranked much higher (256 vs 294). Omaha has the better field goal percentage (45% vs 43%) and far better free throw shooting percentage (73% vs 68%). Omaha also has the better defensive efficiency, ranking 268th vs 304th for North Dakota. Omaha is 6-1 at home this season. North Dakota is 2-6 on the road. Those looking to back Omaha could also target the Mavericks on the moneyline at -165.
