This is the time where we start to see some alarming trends amongst college basketball’s best spread betting teams. Previous juggernauts like Creighton and Wichita State have fallen off the wagon slightly, and other stoic strongholds like Syracuse have imploded. Entire conferences, including the Big East and SEC, are war fields of death for gamblers right now. So which teams is your money safest with this week? You’re going to be surprised by at least three of my four picks…
College Basketball’s Best Spread Betting Teams This Week
#11 VIRGINIA CAVALIERS (14-9-1 ATS)
Duke and Syracuse continue to be the spotlight teams in the always exciting ACC, but it’s Virginia that is stealing the hearts of the gambling crowd with a fantastic 6-3-1 ATS record over their last 10 games. I wouldn’t be too worried about those failed covers either. They beat Boston college 77-67 as -13.0 favorites and survived V-Tech 57-53 with a -11.0 point handicap as well. Maryland always crawled through the backdoor against the Cavs during a 61-53 rout as -11.0 favorites. In short, Virginia remains a solid college basketball spread betting pick. As hosts against a limping Syracuse Orange team, you can bet that they’re going to take a chance to steal the spotlight for themselves seriously this weekend.
Upcoming Games: vs. Miami (2/26), vs. Syracuse (3/1)
#6 KANSAS JAYHAWKS (14-12-1 ATS)
I’m not giving up on Kansas. They just trounced Texas 85-54 as -10.5 favorites and seem absolutely poised to peak at the right time. Blending the supreme talents of Joel Embiid and Wiggins is just taking a bit more time than we thought, and lately the Jayhawks have been one of the best, big-name programs in the sportsbook. They’re 6-3-1 ATS in their last 10 games and have a pair of very good matchups. Don’t sleep on these guys despite their frustrations from early on. Kansas is an upward trending team…which is also a terrifying thought.
Upcoming Games: vs. Oklahoma (2/24), @ Oklahoma State (3/1)
NEW MEXICO LOBOS (12-10 ATS)
I often skip past the Mountain West Conference when it comes to covering college basketball’s best spread betting teams but the Lobos have been on such a tear recently that I have to slide them in here. They’ve decimated their schedule with a brilliant 9-1 SU and ATS run. I don’t know why. I don’t care. As long as the top ranked teams in the country are cancelling each other out, there’s going to be lost value in the lesser known conferences. Right now, New Mexico is a superb profit churning monster so just bet away and don’t ask too many questions.
Upcoming Games: vs. Utah State (2/25), @ Nevada (3/2)
Cleveland State Vikings (19-6-1 ATS)
A couple things you probably didn’t know about Cleveland State. First off, they have a basketball team! Second, they have one of the most adorable mascots I’ve ever encountered. It’s like one of the Mr. Men got dressed up for Halloween. And thirdly, they’re one of the best college basketball spread betting teams in the country! They’ve broken off a blissful 8-2 SU and ATS run in their last ten games and have two winnable matchup against teams they’ve covered against before. I’ve touted off-radar teams like Creighton and Wichita State before, but the Vikings are my new “bet it and forget it” team this week. You can’t argue with results so don’t even bother. Just get on board with one of college basketball’s best spread betting teams and enjoy the profits.
Upcoming Games: vs. YSU (2/25), vs. Valparaiso (3/1)
