  • Saturday's college basketball slate is officially underway, providing savvy bettors plenty of opportunities to find value.
  • And it's not only casual bettors getting down on Saturday college basketball -- sharps are betting today's slate as well.
  • Using our college basketball picks and predictions, we examine how the wiseguys are betting Chattanooga vs. VMI and Oklahoma State vs. Texas.

Many sports fans and bettors consider this weekend’s NFL Divisional Round playoff slate as the best of the entire season due to four very meaningful, yet standalone football games.

Of course, all four of these games, starting with Saturday’s Cincinnati Bengals vs. Tennessee Titans and San Francisco 49ers vs. Green Bay Packers matchups, will attract insanely large betting handles. But there’s still plenty of time between now and today’s first kick at 4:30 p.m. ET.

Casual bettors bet, and with accounts funded and time between now and the start of Bengals vs. Titans, that bankroll will be put to work on today’s early college hoops games.

And if you’re one looking for some early action, why not tail the pros on a handful of college basketball games that should be completed by the time NFL gets underway, like Syracuse vs. Duke (12 p.m. ET), Chattanooga vs. VMI (1 p.m. ET) and Oklahoma State vs. Texas (2 p.m. ET)?
