Bookie vs. Bettor: Clemson vs. Kansas

The Jayhawks will be playing for a 3rd consecutive trip to the Elite Eight and the College Basketball Betting Power Ratings indicate a line of Kansas -5 with the actual line set at that number (right on the money).

Nearly 70% of the action was on Kansas at the more recreational books, leaving them somewhat exposed with this game Friday night.  Sharper books were seeing more balanced action.

The books made out like bandits in Thursday night's KSU-Kentucky game with the underdog upsetting here and nearly 80% of spread wagers coming in on Kentucky. 

Loyola-Chicago won by a single point with Nevada a -1.5 favorite and the Power Ratings indicating that line should have been closer to -3.5.  Large overlays and underlays do often go in the opposite direction that is actually indicated.
