Online sports betting might be more popular with Notre Dame this college basketball season with forward Luke Harangody leading the Irish.
He was the leading vote-getter in the AP preseason All-America team. Sportsbetting sites had Harangody getting 57 votes followed by Kansas players Cole Aldrich and Sherron Collins.
Online sports betting fans can remember Harangody averaging 23.3 points and 11.8 rebounds per game a year ago for Notre Dame. Aldrich averaged 14.9 points per game and 11.1 rebounds while Collins averaged 18.9 points and 4 assists per game. Online sports betting indicated that also on the preseason All-America team is Kentucky junior Patrick Patterson. Online sports betting number had him averaging 17.9 points and 9.3 rebounds per game last season. Kyle Singler of Duke gets the other starting spot as he averaged 16.5 points and 7.7 rebounds per game a year ago. Singler is expected to lead a talented Duke team this college basketball season at online sports betting sites.
Since the 1986-87 season there have been only five sets of teammates making the team. Aldrich and Collins will be the sixth. Kansas is one of the leading contenders in online sports betting to win the national title this season. Sportsbetting had Aldrich receiving 49 votes while Collins got 39. Kentucky is also well respected in online sports betting odds. Patterson got 35 votes which as five more than Singler received.
While Harangody received the most votes the Fighting Irish are not considered serious online sports betting contenders to win it all this season. Kansas is the more serious sportsbetting threat with Aldrich and Collins. Aldrich was one of only two players in the Big 12 to average a double-double a year ago as sportsbetting numbers showed. Online sports betting indicated that Kansas is picked as the #1 team in the preseason Top 25. "I do think we return the best guard in the country and the best big man in the country," Kansas coach Bill Self said. "I think if you’re going to start a team, why not have an anchor and why not have a guard?"
Kentucky is right with Kansas as a preseason favorite in online sports betting and Patterson is a big reason why. He should do very well in new head coach John Calipari’s offense and could make a huge impact in online sports betting in the 2009-2010 college basketball season.
