How the public is betting the college basketball schedule on Tuesday, December 8th

We’ve got the latest numbers for the best of college basketball’s opening schedule for December 8th

There are plenty of great college basketball games tonight, and the Top 25 will have plenty of room to show off across the schedule as 10 teams with a ranking are in action this evening.

The No. 5 Kansas Jayhawks host the No. 8 Creighton Bluejays in Allen Fieldhouse, and the only blemish for the Jayhawks so far is a 102-90 loss to Gonzaga. Their 65-62 win over Kentucky looked promising, but a 65-61 win over the North Dakota State Bison still showed plenty of room to improve. They get a 3-0 Bluejays squad that beat the Bison 69-58, so on common opponents alone only the wrong team is favored. That’s also a terrible way to handicap a basketball game.

Also the No. 16 North Carolina Tar Heels are 3-0, and they’re off to Iowa City to face Wooden Award candidate Luka Garza and the No. 3 Iowa Hawkeyes. The Heels have early wins over Charleston and UNLV, plus a four-point victory over Stanford. The Hawkeyes have beaten three schools you probably can’t find on a map on an unmarked map with North Carolina Central, Southern, and Western Illinois, they’ve handled all of them by 27 or more.
