I’ll also share some of my favorite plays from the primer, all of which are available on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Midseason Update

Provides you with what you can expect as a VSiN subscriber for the rest of college basketball season, particularly with football winding down.

Halfway Best Bets

Zach Cohen highlights some of the best bets you can make at this stage of the season, taking his shot at some long odds. A couple of the bets include BYU as the Big 12 Regular Season Champ (+700), as the Cougars have been one of the biggest surprises in college hoops. The crew was high on Michigan State entering the season, and Sparty disappointed early. But they’ve won five straight as of January 5, and might have some value now as an even longer shot — Michigan State to win it all (+3000).
