The college basketball season just started and I already feel like a broken record when writing these weekday PRO Reports.

While we have a deep, under-the-radar Thursday college hoops slate that essentially runs all day, that’s not what most bettors want.

Just like Brawndo for plants, Thursday Night Football is what casual bettors crave.

In addition, there’s also a Louisville vs. Duke college football matchup, which will easily top any of today’s college basketball matchups in terms of betting handle.

So with Patriots vs. Falcons and Louisville vs. Duke on tap for tonight, of course sharps are betting the random Thursday hoops matinee between Penn and Utah State.

Here’s the Thursday afternoon wager that the wiseguys are quietly making.
