Nebraska at Kansas NCAA Basketball Betting

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

NCAA basketball betting has top-ranked Kansas heavily favored at home against Nebraska on Saturday in a game that can be seen on ESPN U.

The Jayhawks simply don’t lose at home and they are solid against the spread as well for those making a college basketball bet.

NCAA basketball betting had Kansas playing Colorado on Wednesday while Nebraska played Kansas State on Tuesday.  The Jayhawks are leading the Big 12 conference while Nebraska is struggling in last place.  The Huskers were blown out 76-57 on Tuesday by Kansas State and a similar result is likely in this game at Kansas.

Kansas has simply dominated Nebraska in this series. They have won the last 14 games against the Huskers and they are almost as good against the NCAA basketball betting odds. They are a superb 11-2-1 against the NCAA basketball betting line in those games.  The one push against the pointspread came last month at Nebraska when Kansas won 84-72 as 12 point favorites.  Last year the Jayhawks won 70-53 at home against Nebraska and covered the college basketball bet number.

There is simply not a lot to like about Nebraska when making a college basketball bet. The Huskers are 1-5 against the NCAA basketball betting line on the road this season.  Nebraska can play defense as they are ranked 31st in the country but their offense is simply horrible. Their leading scorer averages just 10.7 points per game.  The Cornhuskers simply don’t have the offensive weapons to beat Kansas.  They may not have enough to stay within the NCAA basketball betting point spread either but at least they do play defense.

Kansas is 6-4 at home this season for those making a college basketball bet. There is one concern for those making a college basketball bet on Kansas in this game and that Kansas is looking ahead to Monday. The Jayhawks play Texas on Monday in the biggest game of the Big 12 conference season. They might not be fully focused on a poor Nebraska team and that might be enough for the Huskers to cover the spread.  Kansas should still win easily but if they are not focused then covering the big NCAA basketball betting line might be tough. Kansas has a very balanced team with Sherron Collins, Cole Aldrich and Xavier Henry leading the way.  Also capable of putting up double digits on a regular basis are Marcus Morris and Brady Morningstar.
