Top College Hoops Betting Games of the Week

 

 

Wednesday: Houston at UCF

Houston has played reasonably well in the American Athletic Conference this year, while UCF has been circling the drain in the conference standings. I would take the Cougars by as many as four or five in this one. They rebound well, and when they are shooting from downtown, they can be a difficult team to defend.

Wednesday: #1 Villanova at #5 Xavier

I like Xavier’s chances to pull off the home upset, so I would put my money on the Musketeers, especially given the razor-thin line.

Thursday: Florida State at #15 Duke

Duke absorbed a bit of a whipping from Louisville over the weekend, which makes them a candidate for the Angry Revenge Theory. Florida State is not a pushover by any means, but the Blue Devils do get a home game against a team well down the conference standings from them after a tough conference loss, making them extremely likely to take the Seminoles to the woodshed here. I would give as many as six or seven points if I were betting on Duke here.

Thursday: #18 Indiana at Illinois

Trap game for the Hoosiers? I doubt it. They’ve been playing with poise and focus in the last week or so in Big Ten play, while Illinois has been folding late for all of their competition recently. I would give as many as six or seven points and bet on Indiana to take care of business in this game.

Thursday: USC at Stanford

The oddsmakers may be undervaluing USC a little bit here after some struggles in the Pac-12. If you can get USC as a road underdog, I would take it — and I might even give up a basket or two. I think USC will be able to go into Stanford and get a win.

Friday: Harvard at Yale

Yes, it’s one of the oldest rivalries in college basketball, but this year it’s not going to be close. Yale is dominating the Ivy League, while Harvard is swimming near the bottom of the conference standings. Take Yale and be ready to give six or even eight points in this one, given Yale’s dominance of the conference this season.

Saturday: #3 Oklahoma at #25 Texas

This is one of those rivalries in which anything can happen — and remember, Texas already beat North Carolina. However, I think that Oklahoma can head down to Austin and come out with a win, using that anger from two losses to Kansas to get them pointed back in the right direction.

Saturday: #11 Louisville at #12 Miami

This is an intriguing ACC matchup: Louisville just beat Duke, while North Carolina swatted away the Hurricanes during the week. I like Louisville to keep their collective foot on the gas and keep the Hurricanes from recovering any momentum, even at home.
