Thursday afternoon’s Minnesota vs. Penn State college basketball game is a prime target for sharp betting action.

Is it a matchup between two major conference teams? Yes, but it’s not like casual bettors are going to rush to the window to get down on 12-11 Minnesota taking on 10-12 Penn State.

And when it comes to Minnesota vs. Penn State on Thursday afternoon, there appears to be loads of value on the total.
