College Basketball Best Bets for Wednesday: Riding With Valpo Again

In this world, respect is earned. Think about it, you don't just respect someone because someone else tells you to. The only people you respect are the ones that have earned it. That's just a little Respect 101. Well here's a little something you learn in the second year of studying respect. Sometimes, you can earn respect but then still have people disrespect you. It's disgusting. That's what's happening again today with the team we're backing. No matter what they do, they can't seem to get the books to respect them. It's crazy. Lucky for us, we can capitalize on the disrespect. Otherwise it would be a full-blown tragedy. What's even better is, this game starts at 7:00pm ET.

Valparaiso Team Total Over 30.5 *First Half (-102) (Bet $102 to win $100)

We've got options people. You could do this for -102 at FanDuel or do it for -115 at DraftKings. Obviously, we want the lower price but the point is, you can play it anywhere. Barstool came in at -125 which is wild but you can always grab that. We have to do what we have to do sometimes.

What can I say about the Beacons? We backed them Monday night and they absolutely pumped Evansville in the first half in route to a 36 spot. What can I say, these kids thrive off their home crowd. They did the same thing to the best team in the entire Missouri Valley Conference the game before. They're not just beating up on scrubs here.

Tonight Valparaiso will welcome the Drake Bulldogs to the Athletics-Recreation Center for their turn in the house of horrors. This will be the fourth game at this venue this month for the Beacons and they'll try to make it 4-4 in going over 30.5 in the first half. It's a minor pace up spot for Valpo and they've already hung 31+ in the first half against Drake this season.

What makes this matchup different (better) is the fact that Valpo is just canning shots right now. Over their last three games, their effective field goal percentage is 59.1%. That's stupid good. Keep in mind they played a Loyola Chicago in that span. Drake has given this up in each of their last two games and if we're being honest (we are), I think it happens again tonight.
