Today's College Basketball Best Bets

There's more college basketball action today, which means even more tough decisions for bettors to go along with NBA, NFL, NHL and college football this week. To help you make the best bets today, the BetQL editors have picked a few of their favorite college basketball bets below using key trends, data and picks from the BetQL model.

One trend to note is that the BetQL model is crushing NCAAB spread bets, going 473-372 (56%) on all spread picks rated ⭐⭐ and higher in the past 30 days, for a total return of $5,801 on $100 bets!

Dan Karpuc: UConn -4.5 at Florida
The Huskies are off to a perfect 9-0 start and have also gone 8-1 ATS, while Florida is off to a 6-3 start (4-5 ATS). UConn would be 9-0 ATS if they scored one more point in their 20-point blowout win over Buffalo early in the year and they’ve consistently performed on both ends of the court with their impressive depth. The last time the Gators played a “real” opponent, West Virginia beat them, 84-55, and while I don’t expect that to happen in Gainesville, I’m giving the Huskies a massive edge at this number. Under Dan Hurley, UConn has gone 21-8 ATS after two consecutive double-digit-point wins and the Huskies are ranked fourth overall in KenPom’s ratings (ninth in Adjusted Offensive Efficiency, 10th in Adjusted Defensive Efficiency) while Florida is ranked 47th (44th and 56th in Adjusted Offensive and Defensive Efficiency, respectively). Give me Connecticut to win and easily cover.

Lucy Burdge: UConn -4.5 vs. Florida
Connecticut has covered the spread in six straight games, while Florida is just 4-5 ATS this season, so I think UConn can get the best of Florida tonight and cover this spread. Also, Dan Hurley is 21-8 ATS after two straight wins by 10 points or more while coaching Connecticut. UConn has covered in all three road games so far, and I think they’ll make it four here against Florida.

Kate Constable: Tennessee - 28.5 vs. E. Kentucky

This is a massive number, but this is also Tennessee at home against Eastern Kentucky. The Vols are 7-1 on the season with huge wins over ranked Kansas and USC teams. They’ve proven that they can not only beat good teams, but also beat down bad teams. Tennessee’s most recent two wins came by 54 against Alcorn State and 36 to McNeese State. I expect a similar story tonight being the Vols are only giving up 51.5 points per game and have the best adjusted defensive efficiency in all of college basketball, per KenPom. They also turn teams over at the third highest rate, which will lead to plenty of scoring opportunities.

Offensively, it’s going to take a Herculean effort by the Colonels to slow down a Tennessee offense that is averaging 75 points per game despite only shooting 41.7% from the field. Not to mention, the Vols have five players averaging double figures, giving them an extremely balanced attack. That’s not a good sign for E. Kentucky.
