NCAA basketball betting favors #1 Kansas on Tuesday as they host California.
The Jayhawks are still unbeaten on the season as they are 10-0 to start a season for the third time under head coach Bill Self. Kansas did not cover their last game though in college basketball betting on Saturday against Michigan even though they won the game outright.
NCAA basketball betting has seen Kansas win 14 of the 17 all-time meetings against California. Kansas head coach Bill Self knows Tuesday’s game won’t be easy. “They’re fast. They’re really fast. (Jerome) Randle, their point guard, is as quick as anybody we will play against this year. They’re picked to win the Pac-10 and it will be a tough game.” Self said, “Hopefully we play better then what we did today (Saturday vs. Michigan).
In that win over Michigan, sophomore forward Marcus Morris scored a career-high 23 points and recorded 10 rebounds.
California is the preseason favorite to win the Pac-10 this season so they may give Kansas a test in NCAA basketball betting. Senior guard Jermome Randle had 15 points in Cal’s 79-54 victory against Pacific and is 13th all-time in school history. He is Cal’s leading scorer, averaging 19.6 points per college basketball betting game. California can definitely score in college basketball betting. They have scored at least 70 points in every game and have topped 80 points four times in NCAA basketball betting. Defensively, Cal has held each of its last five opponents to 42 percent or less from the floor. Cal’s strength of schedule currently ranks second in the nation as NCAA basketball betting stats show and the Bears’ RPI is No. 16. Coming into this NCAA basketball betting matchup, Cal has outrebounded seven of its nine opponents. The Bears outrebounded Iowa State (51-32,), Princeton (37-20) and Pacific (45-30).
NCAA basketball betting stats show that Kansas is led by freshman Xavier Henry but the Jayhawks are very balanced with a number of scorers including Sherrod Collins and Cole Aldrich.
The last NCAA basketball betting meeting between Cal and Kansas was in 2005-06 when the Jayhawks were victorious, 69-56. California is 4-4 against the NCAA basketball betting pointspread this season. They are 1-1 on the road in college basketball betting. Kansas is 4-3 vs. the NCAA basketball betting odds this season. They are 3-1 at home versus the NCAA basketball betting line.
