Best College Basketball Trends You May Not Know About

Best Betting Trends

The college basketball season is a wildly exciting time for bettors, with upwards of 100 games on Saturdays to wager on and nightly games numbering in the double digits. That said, the reason for that volume of games is that there are 353 teams in Division I and having a good feel for all of them can be a daunting, if not impossible task. So, I have a list of trends that might help you in your handicapping and point you in the right direction.

Best OVER Teams in College Hoops

Leading the charge for the highest OVER percentage in college hoops so far this season are the Gonzaga Bulldogs at 23-6 with an average combined score of 155.2. Fortunately for the Zags, they are typically the hammer, not the nail, leading the nation with 87.6 points per game en route to a 27-2 record overall.
