NCAAB Betting: Big East vs. SEC
The top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats will play the St. John’s Red Storm in college hoops betting action on Thursday night at Rupp Arena as part of the Big East/SEC Challenge.
Kentucky (6-0 SU, 3-2 ATS) will be a favorite at Bovada against the Red Storm (4-3 SU, 2-3 ATS), who are just 3-6 SU over their past nine road games while only covering the spread in three of their last nine games as well.
The Wildcats lead in nearly every statistical category, and with five straight wins they will be the choice of most on the college hoops betting lines when these two match up.
In late college hoops betting action on Thursday it’s the Georgetown Hoyas (5-1 SU, 4-0 ATS) taking on the No. 12 Alabama Crimson Tide (7-0 SU, 3-1 ATS) at Coleman Coliseum as part of the Big East/SEC Challenge.
Alabama is off to its best start in years, but Georgetown is the toughest opponent they will have faced this season. Georgetown has won the only game between these teams in the past, and that was in Alabama.
While Alabama has one of the best defenses, it has to face a Hoyas team that has scored an average of 82 points per game with three players scoring in double figures. Georgetown is also 7-3 SU in its past 10 games on the road.
The Hoyas are worthy opponents but Alabama will have strong rebounding to cut down the Georgetown offensive rush, while the return of JaMycal Green gives them depth on offense.
No. 10 Florida will try and even their head-to-head record against Syracuse when the Gators face the fourth-ranked Orange in college basketball betting action on Friday as part of the Big East/SEC Challenge.
The Orange (7-0 SU, 5-1 ATS) are the likely favorites at Bovada heading into this contest, and the Gators (5-1 SU, 1-1 ATS) lack depth coming into this game. Syracuse has won five straight at home and should see the majority of attention on the college hoops betting lines.
Five straight games with Florida on the road have paid out to OVER bettors in totals betting.
