NCAAB Odds: SEC vs. Big East

The SEC/Big East Invitational has been an annual college basketball betting event since the 2007 season, featuring two doubleheaders between SEC and Big East opponents.

The first leg of this year’s doubleheader will be played at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Kentucky on Wednesday. The matchups on NCAAB odds list will be the SEC’s Arkansas Razorbacks against the Big East’s Seton Hall Pirates, and the SEC’s Kentucky Wildcats against the Big East’s Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Arkansas Razorbacks (+4.0) vs. Seton Hall Pirates (-4.0), 7:00 PM ET - matchup stats

Seton Hall is a 4-point favorite over Arkansas on Wednesday night at SPORTSINTERACTION on NCAAB odds. Arkansas has the better overall record, but they haven’t really been tested to this point of the season.

Arkansas is 5-1 SU and 1-2 ATS. The Razorbacks have been favored in all three of their games with spreads, failing to cover as 24.5-point favorites in a 66-56 win over SE Missouri State and losing outright 70-65 at home against UAB as a 3.5-point favorite. Their one ATS cover came when they were -9.0 at home against Oklahoma, and won 84-74.

Seton Hall is just 3-3 SU, but is 3-2 ATS in college basketball betting. The Pirates haven’t played in nine days since their last game on November 29, so it will be interesting to see how the long layoff affects them. Seton Hall took a huge blow when their superstar guard Jeremy Hazell broke his wrist last month. Hazell averaged 24 points in the first three games of the season (2-1 SU, 2-0 ATS).

Since Hazell’s injury, Seton Hall is 1-2 both SU and ATS. His absence, as well as potential rust from the long layoff, could point to some value on Arkansas at +4.0.

Kentucky Wildcats (-5.5) vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (+5.5), 9:30 PM ET - matchup stats

About 75 miles from their home in Lexington, Kentucky, this “neutral court” game should play as a virtual home game for Kentucky. The Wildcats are -5.5 at Bovada on NCAAB odds. Unlike the undercard, this game features two ranked teams, as Kentucky is No. 17 and Notre Dame is No. 23 in the country.

Kentucky stormed out of the gate to a solid 4-0 SU (2-1 ATS) record, but have since hit a snag, losing two of their last three games (to UConn and North Carolina) both straight up and ATS. They will get a chance at redemption against another elite team Wednesday night in Notre Dame.

Notre Dame is the only undefeated team in the challenge at 8-0 SU (4-1 ATS). Both Ben Hansbrough and Tim Abromaitis are averaging over 15 PPG on the young season. In their first road game of the season, the Irish picked up a 58-51 win at Wisconsin as a 3-point underdog in college basketball betting.

Kentucky may have the virtual home-court advantage, but the points look tempting in this matchup as well.
