  • Not only are wiseguys taking a position on UConn vs. Xavier, they're also hitting Northern Kentucky vs. Green Bay and St. Bonaventure vs. Saint Louis.
  • Continue reading to see how the pros are these three college basketball matchups on Friday night.

Friday’s college basketball schedule is one that only a bettor can love.

I often wax poetic about how “loaded” or even “sneaky good” a given slate is, but even I can’t do that tonight.

Let’s dive into the three games quietly getting popped by the pros, including the aforementioned UConn vs. Xavier, as well as Northern Kentucky vs. Green Bay and two bets on St. Bonaventure vs. Saint Louis.
