The Jayhawks are coming off a tough win at Texas A&M on Monday that kept them unbeaten in the Big 12. They are heavily favored in college basketball bet lines on Saturday to stay unbeaten against a Colorado team they have owned.
NCAA basketball betting has Kansas at 25-1 overall and 11-0 in the Big 12. They had to really work for Monday’s win at Texas A&M but they pulled out the win. NCAA basketball betting stats indicated that three players had 12 points while Cole Aldrich had 10 rebounds. Aldrich, Marcus Morris and Xavier Henry had 12 points each.
Kansas has been the dominant team in the Big 12 recently. They have won the last five conference titles and they are in great shape to make it six in a row. Kansas simply doesn’t lose at home as they have won 56 in a row. Their last home court loss was on Feb. 3, 2007, against Texas A&M.
Kansas has won 19 of the last 20 games against Colorado and they are 12-8 against the NCAA basketball betting odds in those games. Kansas had to go to overtime to beat Colorado earlier this month. The Jayhawks pulled out the 72-66 win but they did not cover the big college basketball bet odds. In fact, Kansas has failed to cover in the last two games against Colorado. The Jayhawks are 0-3 against the NCAA basketball betting line in their last three home games against Colorado.
The last six games between the two teams have all gone under the college basketball bet total. Colorado is just 3-5 against the NCAA basketball betting line on the road this season. They have been much better at home than on the road. Colorado simply doesn’t play enough defense on the road to have a chance to win many games and they also have had injury issues this season.
Kansas is 6-6 against the college basketball bet point spread at home this season. Kansas is 5th in the country in scoring so they could have a field day against a poor Colorado defense. Kansas also has a defense that ranks in the Top 50 in the country. Kansas should be a popular choice in this NCAA basketball betting contest.
