College Basketball is starting to take center stage as we close out the month of January. Here is a look at some betting action we like for tonight's slate!

Core College Basketball Bets

#7 Kansas State Wildcats (+8) at #8 Kansas Jayhawks

The Wildcats' surprise season continues on the road tonight against the rival Jayhawks. K-State came out with a one-point victory at home in their first matchup on January 17th. Now getting eight points in a tough road environment, we like the Wildcats to cover. This is an older, veteran team that is 32nd in the country in D1 experience. K-State also features two bonafide stars in guard Markquis Nowell (16.9 ppg, 8.2 apg) and Keyontae Johnson (18.0 ppg, 7.7 rpg), who make up one of the top duos in the country. They must limit Kansas forward Jalen Wilson (21.4 ppg, 8.6 rpg), who posted 38 points and nine rebounds in Manhattan, but this Kansas squad hasn't exactly been world-beaters at home. They were just recently handed a 23-point blowout loss to TCU. In their other three conference home games, KU was able to grab three wins, but only by a combined eight points. This will come down to the final two minutes in a battle between two Top 10 teams which bodes well for a cover.

#21 Indiana Hoosiers (+130) at Maryland Terrapins

Coach Mike Woodson and the Hoosiers have bounced back nicely after losing four of their first five Big Ten games. They now sit at 6-4 after five straight wins. Tonight they take on a solid Maryland squad on the road. We like them straight up in this matchup, and it has much to do with the play of forward Trayce Jackson-Davis (19.6 ppg, 10.7 rpg). TJD has gone nuclear during the Hoosiers' five-game win streak, and it's tough to find someone on the Terrapin side capable of slowing him down, with their two starting frontcourt players both listed at 6'8". What makes the Hoosiers especially tough is that they are 18th in the country in three-point percentage, and TJD is a great passer out of the post. The Hoosiers will need to contain Maryland guard Jahmir Young (16.0 ppg, 3.3 apg), who is on a heater as well. If they can do that, look for the Hoosiers to grab their third straight conference road win.

Moneyball Bet of the Night

Wake Forest Demon Deacons (+300) at Duke Blue Devils

If you are looking for some major underdog action, look no further than the Demon Deacons at Cameron Indoor. Crazy right? Maybe not, as Wake Forest has already shown the ability to handle Duke in an 81-70 victory at home on December 20th. The Wake Forest backcourt of Tyree Appleby (17.7 ppg, 6.1 apg) and Cameron Hildreth (13.3 ppg, 6.3 rpg) could not be contained in that one as they combined for 34 points. The Demon Deacons are 27th in offensive efficiency and first in ACC play. With weapons like Appleby and Hildreth, we know they will be able to score, the question is if they can hold Duke down on the defensive side. The Blue Devils are first in the country in offensive rebounding percentage, and Wake must slow down Kyle Filipowski (15.8 ppg, 9.4 rpg), who played miserably in the first matchup. Cameroon Indoor is no easy place to grab a road win, but if any team can do it, it's a team with multiple offensive weapons like Wake Forest.
