If you've ever wondered out loud, "why do I need to consider wagering on college basketball?" Tonight's slate of games available on the board might be the perfect reason.

Just one top 25 team is in action tonight, and it's the No. 22 ranked 8-2 Wisconsin Badgers hosting the 4-4 Lehigh Mountain Hawks in Madison this evening as a 22.5-point favorite.

Since dropping their ACC / Big Ten Challenge matchup at home to Wake Forest, the Badgers have won three straight, two of which came in overtime on the road vs. Marquette and Iowa. The other matchup saw them hand the Maryland Terrapins their first loss of the season, consequently sending the Terps into a mini-tail spin with three straight defeats after an 8-0 start.

After that, it's only six games available to bet on this evening. Perhaps the most entertaining of them all takes place in Santa Clara, California, where the Broncos welcome the UC Irvine Anteaters to town.

UC-Irvine has put together some strong wins this season, including on the road in Eugene against the Oregon Ducks with a 69-56 victory. Before taking down South Dakota on the road 83-71, they had lost two straight, including a heartbreaker vs. a borderline top 25 team in San Diego State on the road 72-69.

Via Covers, the Anteaters have covered in four straight road games, with the over going 4-0 in their last four matchups.

Meanwhile, Herb Sendek's squad is in the midst of a nine-game homestand, and are 3-1 so far with wins over Sacramento State, New Mexico State and Portland State, with a double digit loss to San Jose State State sprinkled in.

The Broncos have struggled as of late against the spread, failing to cover in their last five games, including going 0-5 ATS at home.

Below are the best available odds for every game on the betting board for Thursday, December 15, along with the top wagering promos specific to your state and sportsbook.
