Are we excited for College Basketball Betting yet? If you are not, there are two possibilities. One, you do not have a pulse (in that case, please seek medical attention ASAP). The other possibility would be that you did not see last night’s game where WVU shocked the No. 8 ranked Kansas Jayhawks in the final seconds of the game. That game got our motor running for the upcoming NCAA tournament and March Madness; just imagine more and more dramatic games with higher stakes as the tournament progresses.
But back to yesterday’s game. West Virginia wanted to go out for the upset from the very beginning of the game scoring eight points first and carrying an 11 point lead in the first half. Upset alarms were ringing all over College Basketball Betting, but the favorite Jayhawks were not prepared to let the game slip away that easy. The Jayhawks’ had a combined effort of 37 points, scored by their star players Perry Ellis and Frank Mason. However this was not enough to prevent the upset delivered by the Mountaineers.
The key for West Virginia’s win was to keep up the pressure and forcing the Jayhawks to not be able to gather some defensive rebounds. This caused for West Virginia to maintain long possessions during the game. At the final stretch with 8 seconds left on the clock, Juwan Staten from WVU went from coast to coast and drilled the winning basket that secured the 62-61 score. The Jayhawks would have one final possession in the hands of Perry Ellis but his shot missed, causing complete pandemonium in Morgantown, as fans rushed the court in celebration.
Expect more games like this on the coming weeks as the stakes are growing higher and higher as College Basketball Betting moves closer and closer to March Madness.
