Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles (+5.5) -110
Kansas State Wildcats (-5.5) -110
Normally speaking in the games that pit the #8 and #9 teams against one another, the proceedings on the NCAA basketball betting odds are extremely close one way or the other. This year though, the Wildcats and Golden Eagles are seemingly separated by a country mile coming into their Thursday clash.
Southern Miss just didn’t close out the year right, and it definitely showed. The team lost seven in a row from an ATS standpoint, and even the wins that it had SU just weren’t all that special. The offense didn’t look nearly as crisp and the defense was giving up over 70 points left and right in seemingly every game.
This is a team that made it to the dance on the back of its top six scorers. There are plenty of teams out there that have four or five scoring options, but the Eagles have six, all of which are good for at least 9.5 points per game. If they are going to pull off the upset on the NCAA basketball betting lines in this spot, all six will have to come up big!
Kansas State was definitely a bubble team for quite some time this year, but all of a sudden, the team started to figure it out and there were wins coming left and right over some of the top teams in the country.
This team is only going to go as far as Rodney McGruder and Jamar Samuels take it. Samuels is averaging 10.2 points and 6.6 rebounds per game, while McGruder is putting together 15.4 points and 5.5 boards on the average night.
NCAA Basketball Betting Prediction – The current form these two teams are in is remarkable. Apparently, the Selection Committee thought that in the end, these two were good enough to be facing each other in an 8/9 game, but we just don’t see it. Kansas State absolutely reamed the Golden Eagles when these squads met in 2008. Add in the fact that the Cats are 19-9-2 in their last 30 games as favorites of seven points or fewer, and the makings are clearly there for a bit of a runaway win on Thursday.
