Thursday’s college basketball slate is shaping up to be quite the sharp one. And yes, I’m just as shocked as you are about it.

At the time of writing, there are just seven college basketball games with lines posted, six of which tip off at 4 p.m. ET or later, which is important to note since Thursday also includes a college-football bowl doubleheader that gets underway at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Spoiler alert: Recreational bettors love football and that will dominate Thursday’s sports betting handle.

However, the college-basketball afternoon matchups are drawing significant action, so much so that oddsmakers have been forced to make major adjustments to these spreads and totals.

Considering the teams involved and the start times of each of these games, it’s very unlikely that public money is putting a dent in the market, and when it comes to Liberty vs. Stanford, it’s clear that large wagers from professionals bettors are behind the odds movement.
