It’s college basketball’s time to shine — for 10 days that is.

Other than Saturday’s Army vs. Navy rivalry matchup, college football is off until bowl season gets underway on Dec. 17.

This means, for a week and a half at least, casual bettors will turn to college hoops to satiate their appetites for action, meaning more public money will be flowing on basketball.

As is typically the case, recreational bettors will gravitate toward the nationally-televised, higher-profile matchup while professionals, those who win over the long term, don’t particularly care.

Value is value no matter where it comes from, and based on our PRO betting tools, sharps are finding plenty of it in tonight’s Virginia vs. James Madison college basketball matchup.

Virginia vs. James Madison Sharp Betting Pick

The Virginia vs. James Madison spread opened at Cavaliers -5.5 at DraftKings Sportsbook, and early action came in on the favorites to push this number up to -6.5.
