Iowa State vs Iowa Betting Preview, and 3 Other Great Matches to Wager On

We are now 5 weeks into the college basketball season and things are beginning to take shape. We are now edging ever closer to the start of conference matchups, which is usually when we start to see some real separation between the contenders and the pretenders. It’s another jam-packed schedule this week, with some big games that need to be paid attention to. We are going to take a look at the next 4 days of action and pick out a game from each that we think could be great NCAA Basketball Betting opportunities, so let’s get right to it.

Men’s College Basketball Betting Picks & Options Throughout the Week

Kent State Golden Flashes at Gonzaga Bulldogs – Monday

The Gonzaga Bulldogs are coming into this one in a bit of a strange position for them in that it has been a slow start to the season. They are now sitting at 5-3 on the year after losing a close one to Baylor over the weekend. They are almost certainly going to drop in the rankings when they are released, but they have a chance to bounce right back at home on Monday night. Kent State are not going to just roll over and play dead, though, as they come into this one at 6-2, albeit with just 1 road win to their name this season. Can the Bulldogs cover the spread. Which is at 14 ½?

Illinois Fighting Illini Vs Texas Longhorns – Tuesday

We have a pair of currently ranked teams going head-to-head on Tuesday night in what should be a great one. Illinois will be looking to bounce back after losing over the weekend to fall to 6-2 on the season. Texas is a perfect 6-0 on the season, so it will be interesting to see if they can keep the good times rolling. No home court advantage in this one, as it is set to be played at Madison Square Garden in NYC. These two are very similar in their stats, so this has all the makings of a close one. Keep an eye on the point spread here.

UConn Huskies at Florida Gators – Wednesday

The UConn Huskies are out to an absolutely fantastic start this season, going a perfect 9-0 to get the ball rolling. They should be able to get the win on the road to Florida on Wednesday night, but I would not totally count out the Gators. They have been solid on home court, going 4-1 in their own building in the early going. Both of these teams have looked good offensively this season, so it might be worth talking a look at the point total in this one, although I would also be interested to see what the spread is, as Florida might keep this close at home.

Iowa State Cyclones at Iowa Hawkeyes – Thursday

There is nothing quite like a good rivalry game, and we have a beauty set to go on Thursday night. The Iowa State Cyclones hit the road on the heels of a perfect week that saw them move to 7-1 on the season. The Hawkeyes took their first loss of the season last week, but they did rebound and close things out with a win to go to 6-1. The problem that the Cyclones are going to have is hitting the road to face an Iowa team that is a perfect 4-0 at home. This should be a fun one to watch and wager on.
