The Morning Line: USC vs. Arizona, Tulane vs. Houston, Cincinnati vs. Wichita State, and more

The USC Trojans head to Tucson to take on the No. 23 Arizona Wildcats tonight. We break down the morning odds across the college basketball schedule for February 6th.

There’s plenty of good games on the college basketball board Thursday evening, but the few ranked teams matchups aren’t expected to be close.

The USC Trojans are getting 10 points on their way to Tucson to take on No. 23 Arizona Wildcats, with just 39% of the bets but 62% of the cash on the ranked team at home via DraftKings Sportsbook. That’s usually an indicator of sharp action, meaning the smart money won’t mind laying the big number.

Another ranked home team catching a big digit are the Houston Cougars, who are -17 tonight against Tulane Green Wave. NOLA’s head coach Ron Turner has said he would walk across Lake Ponchartrain before his team finished last in the AAC in his first season. We hope he’s got floaties: they’re tied for dead last at 2-7 with UCF right now.

Perhaps the most meaningful game on the board comes from the American Conference, with the Cincinnati Bearcats heading to face the Wichita State Shockers for a big one at The Roundhouse. WSU opened -3, but that’s already up to -5.5 meaning a lot of action is on the home team. It’s a Q1 win that Cincinnati needs as they sit at 47 in the NCAA’s NET rankings heading in, with Wichita at 38. The Shockers might still be reeling from being on the wrong end of this buzzer-beater by Tulsa on Saturday.

Here are the lines as of 10am this morning from DraftKings Sportsbook.
