|Time||8 p.m. ET|
Well, that was one helluva start to the 2021 NCAA Tournament.
Four straight days of betting, sweating and upsets have come to an end, but that doesn’t mean your college basketball action has to, either.
While the Sweet 16 won’t get underway until Saturday, smaller college basketball tournaments will occupy the rest of the week, and yes, these games have betting lines too.
In fact, winning wagers on these lower-profile postseason matchups still pay exactly the same as winning NCAA Tournament bets, sharps remain laser-focused on these games even though recreational bettors take a breather until March Madness returns.
With this in mind, here’s the Tuesday College Basketball Invitational matchup that professionals are already quietly betting.
