Fridays are for the boys of the Ivy League. The NBA is off for the All-Star break, leaving college hoops as the only game in town.
Because of this, tonight’s college basketball slate is attracting an impressive handle, especially for a schedule that doesn’t include any big-name programs.
Davidson vs. St. Bonaventure is Friday’s most heavily bet matchup so far, but Yale vs. Princeton is right on its heels — and it’s not just recreational bettors looking for Ivy League action.
