College Basketball Betting Trends
The Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last four Tuesday games. Milwaukee is 6-2 ATS in its last eight games versus an opponent with a winning straight up record.
The Jayhawks are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 home games. Kansas is 1-5 ATS in its last six Tuesday games.
The Jayhawks have a little bit of a lull in their schedule with back-to-back home games against teams outside the top 200 beginning with this contest against overmatched Milwaukee. Drake was by far the toughest team the Panthers had faced in their first eight games, which says a lot. Even so, this spread is huge and none of Milwaukee's four losses have been by more than six points. Expect Kansas to go through the motions a little bit, which should be enough for the Panthers to cover.
