One of the best things about college basketball is that every game matters. There isn’t a single game on the schedule where a team won’ t give 110% effort and that’s why on any given night any team can come out on top of the NCAA odds competition.
It’s also why the teams shift position in the college basketball betting polls so often. And this year is no exception as we’ve seen a revolving door of #1’s go in and out of the top position of the NCAA odds poll.
But this begs the question: is there a true number one team in the college basketball betting this year?
The answer is no. Every week seems to usher in a new team at the pinnacle of the NCAA odds and that’s likely to continue until the end of the season. Granted there is a small and select group of teams that is head and shoulders above the rest.
The trifecta of Kansas, Texas and Kentucky have spend the lion’s share of the season at the top of the polls but they’re hardly the only in the running for the top spot in the sport. It would be impossible to have such a list without including at least on Big East team and the Syracuse Orangemen have been lights out this college basketball betting season. Currently ranked #2 this team can play head to head with anyone.
You’d also have to throw in fellow Big East teams Villanova and West Virginia which has been all but unbeatable at home as well as perhaps Georgetown. And in Big Ten Purdue has a legitimate shot at hosting the NCAA tourney trophy as well.
While there may not be one team that rises above the rest, there is certainly a handful of teams that superior to the rest of the competition.
