- While the majority of bettors are focused on football, sharps have spent Sunday morning hammering the Kansas vs. Stanford (3 p.m. ET, ABC) over/under.
- Find out how the pros are betting this college basketball matchup.
Today is loaded with football news. The final week of the NFL regular season kicks off at 1 p.m. ET with plenty of teams still jockeying for playoff spots and best seeds possible, while the 2020 college football National Championship is all set as Clemson will take on LSU in two weeks.
While the ticket counts suggest otherwise, Sunday’s college hoops slate is also a solid one, with 12 top-25 teams in action throughout the day.
And because bettors are paying so much attention to football, today’s Kansas vs. Stanford game is about as under-the-radar a college basketball matchup can be when it includes the No. 5 Jayhawks playing on national television.
