The OVC championship game is tonight.

The college basketball betting problem that most bettors have is they simply don’t know enough about certain teams and conferences. If you simply blindly bet on tonight’s OVC championship game, you are setting up your basketball betting future for failure. If you don’t know anything about Morehead State or Little Rock, you might want to move on and find another matchup. Or, you can use the college basketball handicappers here at Sports Hub.

  • Wilson talks with NFL teams: QB Russell Wilson will become a free agent when the NFL’s calendar year begins next Wednesday. In advance of that, Wilson has met with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants. 
  • Big 12: The Big 12 currently has nine teams among the 68 in the latest version of ESPN’s bracketology. Houston, which plays Kansas today, could be the tourney’s overall No. 1 seed. The SEC is next on the list with seven teams.
