Long Beach State vs. BYU Odds

*Odds as of Wednesday morning
The First Four of the NCAA Tournament is underway and most casual basketball fans and bettors are hurriedly finishing up their March Madness brackets while breaking down tomorrow’s Round of 64 slate.
With so much attention on the tournament itself, recreational bettors are largely ignoring the rest of the games on this week’s schedule.
For example, Wednesday’s night’s slate includes 15 college hoops matchups, 13 of which will attract very little action because they’re not part of the NCAA Tournament.
However, sharp bettors don’t worry about the prestige of the tournament itself — all that matters is value.
And when it comes to value, tonight’s Long Beach State vs. BYU NIT matchup appears to have plenty of it.
