Texas vs. Oklahoma State Betting
College basketball betting fans have plenty of action to choose from Wednesday. First, No. 8 Texas visits Oklahoma State. Will the nationally ranked Longhorns be favored at books like Bovada and Sports Interaction, or will the oddsmakers focus more on Oklahoma State’s 9-0 home record?
The hosting Cowboys love their home cooking. In fact, they need it. Oklahoma State’s basketball odds have taken a tumble of late; the Cowboys have lost three of four, all on the road. Still, they’re 14-5 overall and 9-4-1 against the spread on the year.
Texas, a March Madness hopeful at 16-3, enters Wednesday’s college basketball betting action hot, having won four straight and 10 of 11. Texas has also gone 7-1 over its last eight against the spread. Jordan Hamilton’s 19.5 points per game leads the country’s 28th-ranked offense.
Also on Wednesday, Central Florida takes on Memphis. Can the Knights stop the bleeding? They opened the season 14-0, largely on the strength of steady defense, but have lost four straight games, including two at home.
Things don’t get any easier when they visit the Memphis Tigers, who are 12-1 at home and have won three straight games. Though Memphis lacks a go-to scorer – Will Barton leads the way with just 12.6 points per game – it has a whopping eight guys scoring 7.6 points per contest or more. The Tigers have struggled to beat the spread at places like Bovada and Bovada this season, going 5-11 ATS overall, but have beaten their last three spreads. Bettors may want to lean Memphis’ way considering that Central Florida seems to have lost its confidence.
The game of the night in college basketball betting on Wednesday pits undefeated, fourth-ranked San Diego State against No. 9 Brigham Young in a battle of two teams looking to make deep runs in March Madness.
San Diego State allows just 58.8 points per game, good for 11th in the country. The Aztecs also rank seventh in the country in shooting and are 7-0 on the road, including 6-1 ATS on the road.
It’ll be interesting to see how San Diego State’s “D” handles perhaps the best offense it’s faced this season. The Brigham Young Cougars average 85.2 points per game, led by superstar Jimmer Fredette, who averages 26.6 per game to lead the country.
As good as BYU has been this season, it’s a mediocre 7-9 ATS. It’s enough to give bettors pause on Wednesday when they make their picks at places like Bovada and Bovada. San Diego State is better equipped than most teams to put a lid on Fredette and has been a force in college basketball betting circles this season.
