Games that start before the traditional night wave on a weekday are becoming more and more common in college basketball. And they are an incredible gift to hoops bettors.

Instead of waiting until 6:30 p.m. on the East Coast for games to tip-off, we have two matchups at 5 p.m. ET, and one of them is a power conference clash to boot.

The No. 11-ranked Wisconsin Badgers travel to Lincoln to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

The Badgers have exceeded expectations so far this season, and it’s mostly due to Johnny Davis going from a very good player to one of the frontrunners to win the Wooden Award. Davis currently has the second-shortest odds (+700) to win the award on DraftKings.

The Huskers have struggled this season, to put it mildly. They are 6-13, have lost their last six games and are 0-8 to begin conference play.

They are desperate, and some may even say they’re “due for a win.”

The Action Network has a PRO system play on one side and has tracked sharp action coming in on the total.
