Now that the NFL season is all but wrapped up, it's time we start shifting our focus to college basketball.
Thursday night's slate is a solid one, with six ranked teams in action, as well as a handful of others who are fighting on the bubble to make it to the NCAA Tournament. One of those matchups is a Big Ten showdown between the Michigan Wolverines and Northwestern Wildcats.
Northwestern has been a pleasant surprise this season, and is sitting at 15-6 overall and 6-4 in conference play. Meanwhile, Michigan has been arguably the most disappointing team in the country, and at 11-10 and 5-5 in the conference, they need to start winning sooner rather than later if they want to make it to the dance.
Northwestern is set as a 3.5-point favorite in tonight's matchup.
The late-night slate is highlighted by a Pac-12 matchup between No. 5 Arizona and unranked Oregon. The Wildcats have been the cream of the crop in the Pac-12, right up there with UCLA, while Oregon is fighting for a bubble spot, sitting at 13-9 and 7-4 in conference play.
Oregon upset Arizona in their previous meeting back in January 14th, handling them with ease and beating them by a final score of 87-68. Can they repeat that success tonight? Oddsmakers aren't expecting it based on the odds.
Let's take a look at the full list of best available betting odds for Thursday night's college basketball action.
