WACO, Texas. – Six of the top 25 teams in college basketball will be playing one another on Tuesday as multiple ranked matchups highlight the slate of games.
No. 1 Baylor Bears Vs. No. 19 Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Baylor Bears are the top team in the land according to the AP Poll and they’ll be faced with one of their tougher matchups of the season on Tuesday when they face off against the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Legal sports betting sites are labeling the Bears as a large favorite.
Baylor vs Texas Tech Spread Odds
- Texas Tech Red Raiders +12.0 -110
- Baylor Bears -12.0 -110
Both teams are among the nation’s best in terms of scoring defense as both teams are within the top 20 and allow fewer than 60 points per game. There’s a fair argument that Baylor will win the game, but maybe not by this large a spread. The Red Raiders defense should be able to keep things competitive for a while and it’s worth noting they are coming off of a big win over the Kansas Jayhawks as well.
No. 4 Auburn Tigers Vs. No. 24 Alabama Crimson Tide
Simply put, the Alabama Crimson Tide defense is very bad. They allow 74.0 points per game which is good for 289th in the country. Because of this, their offense needs to be on top of their game at all times to remain competitive. Unfortunately for Alabama, they’ll be playing an elite Auburn Tigers defense.
Auburn vs Alabama Spread Odds
- Auburn Tigers +3.0 -110
- Alabama Crimson Tide -3.0 -110
Auburn’s defense is 19th in the country in opposing field-goal percentage, showing they will likely give the Crimson Tide offense some issues throughout the game. Issues they cannot afford to have. Those betting on college basketball may not only side with Auburn on the spread but on the moneyline as well where they can be found at +125.
No. 9 Kansas Jayhawks Vs. No. 15 Iowa State Cyclones
Moving back to the Big 12, Kansas and Iowa State Cyclones are set to play one another as well. Despite being relatively close in the rankings, the odds predict the two have quite the gap between them.
Kansas vs Iowa State Spread Odds
- Iowa State Cyclones +13.0 -110
- Kansas Jayhawks -13.0 -110
Kansas has dominated this matchup in recent years having won each of the last four meetings and doing so by at least 14 points on all four occasions. It’s tough to bet against the Jayhawks in any respect but especially when against an opponent that they’ve controlled in recent years.
