College Basketball Betting Top Weeknight Games January 24-27

Last Saturday, the Kansas Jayhawks reminded everyone what it means to be a college basketball blue blood. Kansas trailed at Kansas State nearly all game. In fact, the Jayhawks were down by double digits for most of the afternoon. Kansas didn’t take the lead until its final shot of the game. But when it was over, the Jayhawks scored an epic 78-75 win over their intrastate arch-rivals. However, KU has no time to celebrate with the College Basketball lines. Kansas faces a tough Texas Tech team at Allen Fieldhouse on Monday night.
