Thursday is truly college basketball’s time to shine.
With college football done and the NFL into its postseason (meaning no more Thursday Night Football), a day that has been dominated by football since August is once again in the capable hands of basketball.
Coincidentally, it’s not a huge NBA night with just a three-game schedule on the docket, allowing college hoops to take center stage with its monster 73-game slate.
While the majority of Thursday’s college basketball doesn’t get underway until 7 p.m. ET, there is a very early appetizer — a 12 p.m. ET standalone game between North Florida and Florida State.
I’m not breaking any news here by saying that North Florida vs. Florida State is unlikely to garner much attention from recreational bettors, but sharps, on the other hand, don’t care when a game is played — all that matters is value.
And according to our college basketball betting tools, North Florida vs. Florida is offering plenty of value.
