While there have been some cancellations along the way, the college basketball season is still moving along at a decent clip. The latest news this week was that March Madness will be based solely in Indiana this year in an attempt to create something of a bubble setting and the best chance to ensure that we actually get a tournament in 2021. There is a lot of basketball to be played between now and then, though, and we have a very busy weekend on tap. There are a ton of games to choose from if you plan on wagering, but let’s take a look at some of the best matchups on tap over the next couple of days so you can bet against their College Basketball odds.
NCAA Basketball Top Games to Watch This Weekend
Ohio State Buckeyes at Rutgers Scarlet Knights – Saturday
After a winning start to the season, the #15 ranked Rutgers Scarlet Knights are starting to see the wheels come off, as they have now lost back-to-back games and 3 of their last 4 overall. They will be at home this weekend with the Ohio State Buckeyes coming to town. The Buckeyes are on a similar run of form to the Scarlet Knights, losing 2 of their last 3 to fall to 8-3 on the season. It has been conference play that has been the problem for both of these teams, so it is going to be interesting to see which of them rises up to get the win on Saturday afternoon.
Texas Longhorns at West Virginia Mountaineers – Saturday
This is arguably the best game on the schedule this weekend, as we have a pair of ranked team sets to square off on Saturday afternoon. The Texas Longhorns have made an impressive 9-1 start to the season and are currently sitting ranked at #4. They are also unbeaten in conference play at 3-0 and looking to keep pace with the Baylor Bears, who have the same Big 12 record. The Mountaineers slipped down to #14, but a win here combined with their victory earlier in the week would get them moving in the right direction again. The problem for West Virginia has been their conference play, where they are 2-2.
Minnesota Golden Gophers at Iowa Hawkeyes – Sunday
We switch to Sunday for another game between a pair of teams currently sitting in the top 25. The Golden Gophers, who are currently sitting at #16, are heading in the wrong direction at the moment, as they are on a run that has seen them lose 2 of their last 3 games. That has dropped them to 3-3 in conference play and has them now sitting 2 ½ games off the pace being set by Michigan in the Big Ten. At 10-2 on the season, the Iowa Hawkeyes are all the way up to #5 in the rankings and are on a run that has seen them win 3 in a row after losing in OT to Minnesota. They are 4-1 in conference play and in the running for a regular season conference title.
