College Basketball Betting Trends

Kansas

The Jayhawks are 6-0 ATS in their last six road games. Kansas is 1-8 ATS in its last nine games as an underdog.

West Virginia

The Mountaineers are 7-1 ATS in their last eight home games. The home team is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings.

Prediction:

The Jayhawks defeated West Virginia 60-53 at Allen Fieldhouse last month and are the best team in the nation defensively, while their offense is efficient most of the time as well. The Mountaineers have not lost at home all season, but its best home victory came against Texas Tech. Kansas is a couple levels up and I love the way the visitors have been playing lately. With West Virginia coming off a dud, I'd rather fade it against a top-notch opponent tonight.
