Everyone in sports has an agenda. Fans see their teams and programs the way they want to see them. Reporters do whatever it takes to get the story. Major networks showcase franchises they know will get ratings. Seeding the NCAA tournament is no different; it's an exercise with inherent bias using an imprecise "science" rewarding teams based on a list of arbitrary metrics more convoluted than quantum physics. There are only 2 factions of sports enthusiasts who benefit immensely from remaining impartial; bettors and oddsmakers. While the NCAA denies the existence of both given their strong stance against gambling (legal or otherwise), I'll trust our power charts to seed the field of 68 over just about anyone associated with college basketball.

 Kansas State Wildcats vs. Kansas Jayhawks Sports Betting Image hosted by

Written By: @ToddFuhrman - Market Analyst

Situations and scheduling yield the best betting opportunities. Talk to any sharp college hoops bettor and they will have games penciled into their betting calendar weeks in advance. Schedule analysis requires the foresight to look ahead and if everything breaks the right way, you’ll gain the competitive edge before numbers hit the betting boards. Here are some choice spots worth noting for the upcoming week in college basketball


Kansas vs Kansas State
The Jayhawks are in free fall, losers of their last 3 conference games. Expect a max effort against in state rival Kansas St but be prepared to pay a price as books realize the sharps were itching to bet the Hawks here and inflated the opening number to -7.5. Deeper analysis actually reveals this to be a bit of value considering KU was -4 in Manhattan and even with the adjustment for current form, the Hawks should be closer to 9 or even 9.5 pt favorites here.

Thursday night's Knicks-Pacers game started at a snails pace featuring a combined THIRTY-points in quarter number one. Perfectly fine if you bet UNDER 185.5, but from an entertainment standpoint it was worse than SPEED 2 until late in the period when JR Smith posterized Ian Mahinmi.

Monday Night Football Odds: Texans vs. Patriots
Point Spread: New England -6, Houston +6
Over/Under: 52.5

The NFL and ESPN will likely see their highest rating of the year for Monday Night Football this week. Both teams in this heavyweight showdown are currently riding six-game winning streaks, making their case for home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. Both teams come into this game with massive point differentials. New England has the highest in the league at +170, while the Texans are a robust +130. Only two other teams carry a positive differential greater than 100 coming into week 14 (49ers and Broncos both +118). Needless to say, these are two of the elite teams in the NFL and a potential glance at what could be the AFC Championship matchup come January.

24 days, 70 teams, 35 games and one massive controversy over whether or not Northern Illinois deserves the right to play Florida State in the Orange Bowl.

Money is typically the rule of all evil, but in this case, the Orange Bowl would've profited tenfold off of a National power like Georgia, LSU, South Carolina, Texas A&M or Oklahoma battling the Noles' in Miami. The Huskies are capitalizing on a system that won’t allow more than two teams from the same conference playing in a BCS Bowl game.

Without further ado, let the bowl season begin!

Monday Night Football Odds: Giants vs. Redskins
Point Spread: New York -3, Washington +3
Over/Under: 50

Each and every year the NFC East is touted as one of the most talented and toughest divisions in the NFL - and each and every year at least one team disappoints. This year every team except 2011’s last place Redskins has disappointed in one way or another. Three of the four teams currently sit at or below .500, and the last place Eagles have been battling Rex Ryan's Jets for biggest bust of the year. The Cowboys have underperformed yet again, managing only six wins with a plethora of talent on the roster. This leaves us with our week 13 match up: New York Giants vs. the Washington Redskins.

Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Wisconsin Badgers Odds
Point Spread: Nebraska -3.5, Wisconsin +3.5
Over/Under: 50.5

In a rematch from earlier this season the 10-2 Nebraska Cornhuskers, champions of the Legends Division, take on the 7-5 Wisconsin Badgers, champions by default of the Leaders Division. Nebraska hasn’t won a conference title since 1999 when the Huskers – coached by Frank Solich and quarterbacked by Eric Crouch, avenged a regular season defeat to Texas with a 22-6 win over the Longhorns in the Big 12 title game. For Wisconsin, they're one win away from dubious history. A victory Saturday evening in the Big Ten championship game would make Wisconsin the first team ever to go to the Rose Bowl with five losses.
