Thanksgiving is typically for football. However, this year a handful of college basketball games will tip on Thursday, including a marquee matchup between No. 1 Gonzaga and No. 6 Kansas.
The Zags are currently 4-point favorites over the Jayhawks (click here for live college basketball odds), yet historical data suggests bettors should be looking at the over/under as the smart way to play this matchup between national championship contenders.
Gonzaga vs. Kansas Pick
While this college basketball season has been anything but normal, one constant from years past is November games being played on neutral courts.
Historically, teams have struggled to score in early-season neutral court games and savvy bettors have taken advantage.
According to our Neutral Court Unders PRO Betting System, November games played on a neutral court with totals of at least 145 have trended toward the under, especially when the majority of bettors are hammering the over.
Since the start of the 2005 college basketball season, unders fitting this criteria are 332-241-4 for a win rate of 58%.
And with a total of 151.5 and 67% of tickets on the over (click here for live betting percentages), Gonzaga vs. Kansas is a match for this system.
