Written by on December 19, 2016

After a weekend of exciting college basketball action that saw the Kentucky Wildcats take out the North Carolina Tar Heels in arguably the best game of the week, college basketball gaming enthusiasts everywhere have their eyes squarely on the top matchups for the coming week.

Here’s is my official breakdown right now.

In Depth Analysis On The Highlights Top College Basketball Betting Games Of The Week (Dec. 19th – 22th)

Monday, December 19

Stanford at SMU at 9:00 PM ET on ESPN2

The Stanford Cardinal (7-3) and SMU Mustangs (8-3) will square off in a battle of apparently evenly matched teams on Monday night.

Tuesday, December 20

Any matchup in any sport between these two longtime in-state rivals is must-see TV!

Wednesday, December 21

St. John’s at Syracuse at 6:00 PM ET on ESPN3

If you remember the days when Chris Mullin and Walter Berry suited up for the Redmen and have any knowledge of Jin Boeheim’s history at Syracuse, then this matchup is a must for nostalgic college hoops lovers.

No. 6 Kentucky at No. 10 Louisville at 7:00 PM ET on ESPN

The top game of what looks like a mostly uneventful week features No. 6 Kentucky on the road against No. 10 Louisville in a pairing of elite national championship contenders. This game is one of just eight remaining scheduled games between current top-eight opponents and is the ninth-best remaining game of the season, based on some analytics-based Statistics.

Kentucky will be led by sure-fire future NBA reformers Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox while Louisville will counter with the super stingy defense and the genius of head coach Rick Pitino. 

Thursday, December 22

LSU at Wake Forest

If you’re thinking about the days when Shaquille O’Neal and Tim Duncan suited up at LSU and Wake Forest respectively, then don’t feel bad…so am I!
