NCAA Basketball Betting: Big Monday lives up to its name this week. This week of college basketball starts off right with the Duke Blue Devils traveling to Miami to take on the Hurricanes. Duke is arguably the most talented team in the country. Marvin Bagley III and Wendell Carter Jr. make for a devastating frontcourt, and the guard play has been solid too. However, this team has struggled on defense. Miami has the athletes to limit this offense and put up some points of its own. The Hurricanes will be a very live dog in this one.
You can no longer pencil in the Kansas Jayhawks to win the Big 12 every year. Kansas has not looked dominant this season, struggling in each of its conference wins. This team is 4-1, but it’s been a very susceptible 4-1 as the team won those four games by an average of four points. The West Virginia Mountaineers just lost a heart breaker against Texas Tech, but are still probably the favorites in the conference. Their full court press will hound Kansas all game long in this one.
Although Auburn and Alabama have a much more fevered rivalry in another sport, both teams have good basketball teams that are hopeful about their chances to make the NCAA Tournament this season. Auburn has responded brilliantly after an investigation threatened to ruin its season before it got started. The Tigers are the only undefeated team left in the SEC, and they look to be the best team in the SEC West. Alabama has not been as good as people were expecting, but boasts one of the most talented players in the country. Freshman guard Collin Sexton has really shined and would be discussed a lot more if not for Trae Young.
Seton Hall is back baby. The Pirates are a major contender for the Big East crown and are off to a great start. However, winning on the road is tough in this conference. Creighton is looking for a little bit of revenge. The Bluejays fell to Seton Hall on the road a few weeks ago and are looking to get a nice win now that the venue is switched.
It’s Trae Young’s world, we’re all just living in it. Young has been the best player in the country and has single-handedly propelled Oklahoma to a Top 10 ranking. The Sooners have already won three more games than they did all of last season, and Young’s play is the reason why. He leads the nation in both points and assists and has torched every defense he has faced with the exception of West Virginia. Oklahoma State already lost to Young and the Sooners once this season, but the Cowboys are hopeful to get the win in Stillwater.
