NCAAB Betting Online: Kentucky freshman Terrance Jones is already rated college basketball’s top player, and the odds on college basketball top prospect should shine again on ESPN this Saturday. Tune into this regional rivalry on Saturday, December 11th at 5:15 ET when Kentucky tries to win and cover the projected 13-point spread against the Indiana Hoosiers.
Kentucky (6-2) has played a solid non-conference schedule thus far with wins over Notre Dame, Washington, Oklahoma and Portland. All those games were away from home and their two losses were by a basket at North Carolina and a 17-point loss to Connecticut in the EA Sports Maui Invitational finals. Freshman sensation Terrance Jones had 23 points on 8-of-9 shooting in that odds on college basketball contest and is the #1 rated NBA prospect, as the Kentucky star is averaging 20 points and over 10 rebounds per game. Along with 275lb senior forward Josh Harrellson and his eight rebounds per game, the Wildcats will have a big advantage on the interior against Indiana. Darius Miller is a long 6-7 guard that can really shoot from the outside and freshman guard Brandon Knight is averaging 17 points per game, but has turned the ball over too much as the Wildcats odds on college basketball point guard.
Indiana (7-1) has played a much softer schedule with their toughest opponent being Boston College, and the Hoosiers suffered a 88-76 road loss December 1st as a 5-point odds on college basketball underdog. The Hoosiers will be well-rested and prepared for Kentucky having been off a full week as they try to redeem last years 90-73 home loss to the Wildcats. Maurice Creek had a career-high 31 points in that loss last season and the 6-5 sophomore guard fractured his knee two weeks later and missed the rest of the season. He was averaging 17 points per game and this season he’s trying to regain that strength and form while averaging 11 points per game; he also checks in as one of the Hoosier’s top 3-point shooters.
The leading 3-point specialist on the Hoosiers is sophomore guard Jordan Hulls, a odds on college basketball local Bloomington product that is scoring over nine points per game while making 58 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. Junior guard Verdell Jones has been a solid scorer for Indiana again this season (14 PPG), but he’s committing nearly five turnovers per game.
For Indiana to stay competitive and battle Terrance Jones, Hoosiers leading scorer and rebounder Christian Watford must have a productive game and be able to rebound the ball at both ends. The 6-9 sophomore is scoring over 17 points per game and grabbing six rebounds per contest, but this will be his toughest odds on college basketball test against the Kentucky big men inside. Indiana lacks size on the interior outside of Watkins, so rebounding could be a real problem against Kentucky.
Indiana coach Tom Cream has built his teams confidence with a light non-conference schedule and the Hoosiers have more depth and are playing with more fire and passion on defense than at any other time in the Tom Cream Era. It’s time to find out if Indiana can compete with some top teams, so expect the Hoosiers most inspired effort of the season in a projected lower-scoring odds on college basketball clash.
