It’s Wednesday, March 1st and let the madness begin! Join us in reading SBR contributor Ross Benjamin’s article detailing 3 college basketball underdogs which each possess optimum betting values.

Arkansas vs Florida

7:00 PM ET

Arkansas enters this SEC showdown with Florida after going 5-0 SU&ATS during their previous 5 games. During this current win streak, the Razorbacks have averaged 84.8 points scored per game while making an impressive 48.6% of its field goal attempts, and they also went a superb 82.4% from the free throw line. Arkansas will also be out to atone for a 9-point home loss to Florida during their 2016-2017 SEC opener.

I really like this Florida Gators team. So much so, last week I made them one of my early March Madness predictions to reach this year’s “Final Four”. Nevertheless, they’re being asked to cover a sizable number on Wednesday against a red-hot opponent, and that’s a tad much to ask in my professional opinion. Although Florida has won 7 of their 8 conference home games, they’re also just a mediocre 4-4 ATS in those contests.

Wednesday’s college basketball odds on this game seems extremely generous as it pertains to the underdog. I’m calling for it to be much closer than many would expect, and a huge upset isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

LaSalle vs St. Louis

8:00 PM ET

One thing that can be rest assured as it applies to both teams, neither will be part of a NCAA March Madness bracket. Nonetheless, one of these teams must cover in tonight’s contest, and I’ll have a strong lean toward the home underdog being the one to do so.

LaSalle is a dismal 1-5 SU&ATS during their previous 6 conference road games. That certainly doesn’t bode well for the LaSalle’s chances of covering as a road favorite, and especially so when considering the somewhat substantial point spread. Conversely, St. Louis is a very profitable 4-1 SU&ATS during its last 5 conference home games.

 Ole Miss vs Alabama

8:30 PM ET

The Ole Miss Rebels have played very well of late, proven by them winning 4 of its last 5 and 6 of their previous 8 games. It’s also worth noting, Ole Miss has gone a lucrative 24-9 ATS (72.7%) in road games during the past 3 seasons.

You can certainly make a logical case, Alabama is a more logical bet in conference road games this season as opposed to those at home. As a matter of fact, they’ve gone a disappointing 1-3 SU&ATS during their previous 4 SEC home games, and their only win during that sequence came against last-place LSU.
