NCAA basketball betting favors third-ranked Kansas on Saturday as they visit Iowa State in a game that can be seen on ESPN.
The Jayhawks have owned this series against Iowa State, winning 9 of the last 10 outright and going 6-3-1 against the college basketball bet odds.
NCAA basketball betting has seen Kansas do better at home than on the road this season. Kansas is just 1-2-1 against the NCAA basketball betting odds in their four true road games this season. Winning on the road has not been easy for anyone in the Big 12. The home teams have dominated and top-ranked Texas found out just how tough it is earlier this week as they suffered their first loss of the season at Kansas State. "It is mind boggling," Colorado coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "The Big 12 is the Big Nasty. It’s an awesome league and the home court records are just another testimony as to how tough this league is."
Kansas routed Iowa State twice last year, winning 72-55 at home and 82-67 at Ames. Many of the games between these two teams have been high scoring as those making a college basketball bet have noticed. Four of the last five have gone over the NCAA basketball betting total.
If Kansas is able to win their games this week they would probably move up in the polls to number two since Texas lost. The Jayhawks sure have the college basketball betting stats that point to them being a #1 team. They have the third best offense in the country and their defense is not bad either as they rank in the Top 30. Kansas has a lot of offensive weapons led by Sherron Collins. The Jayhawks are very balanced with a number of players who can impact NCAA basketball betting including freshman Xavier Henry.
Iowa State is a mid-level team in the Big 12 but they can be tough at home. The Cyclones are 5-3 at home this season for those making a college basketball bet. Iowa State’s leading scorer is Craig Brackins who is averaging more than 16 points per game as college basketball bet statistics indicate.
Kansas is one of the top teams in the country and will probably get most of the NCAA basketball betting attention in this game on Saturday, especially since it is being televised on ESPN.
