How the public is betting the season-opening Top 25 college basketball schedule on Wednesday

We’ve got the latest numbers for the best of college basketball’s opening schedule for November 25th.

NCAA Basketball: Southern California at UCLA UCLA Bruins head coach Mick Cronin (right) speaks with guard Chris Smith and forward Jalen Hill during the first half at Pauley Pavilion.

Welcome back to college basketball, as the games of the day are here and below as we begin to see what this season of late additions, cancelations, and more will look like.

Boston College takes on Villanova today, as the third-ranked Wildcats bring back Collin Gillespie at point guard from last year’s team that was looking at a Final Four run before the season ended. It’s a new-look roster for the Eagles, with five transfers on a squad that was 13-19 and 7-13 in the ACC last season.

And the College of Charleston faces the North Carolina Tar Heels in the Dean Dome. The Heels are #16 entering today’s play, and return frontcourt players Garrison Brooks and Armando Bacot from last season’s disappointing 14-19 finish. When UNC is down it’s usually not for long, and coach Roy Williams hit the recruiting trail hard to ensure this year’s lineup has more success than last year’s blip.

Here are odds and bet splits for today’s Top 25 college basketball games:
