Wednesday’s college basketball slate features several Top 25 teams in action, headlined by the No. 25 Texas Tech Red Raiders and No. 11 Iowa State Cyclones. One of the best games of the day, though, might be in Gainesville when the No. 15 Alabama Crimson Tide face the Florida Gators. Unfortunately there is still a long list of postponements impacting the sport, headlined by No. 5 UCLA’s suspended contest against Arizona State.

Here are the opening odds for NCAA Men’s Basketball on Wednesday, January 5th from DraftKings Sportsbook.
