College Basketball Schedule: Men’s Top 25 Games, Odds for Today, Jan. 29


A full 18 of the AP’s top 25 college basketball teams are in action as of Jan. 29, and it would have been 19 if Marquette and Providence hadn’t pushed things back a day. But the highlight of today’s schedule includes some great games in the Big 12-SEC Challenge, which sees the conferences play a full 10 games from dawn to dusk on the last Saturday in January.

The No. 19 LSU Tigers are in Fort Worth to take on the TCU Horned Frogs in a game that may be closer than expected. Both Xavier Pinson and Darius Days are questionable for the Tigers, who may be favored but not by much. LSU has lost three of its last four, with only a 70-64 win over Texas A&M on Wednesday unraveling the string.

The Oklahoma Sooners lost out and brought the country’s No. 1 to the streets with the Auburn Tigers. The advanced metrics don’t like Auburn (19-1, 8-0 SEC) as much as the leaderboard and a 55-54 squeak over Tuesday’s low Mizzou could be cause for concern. But the Sooners (13-7, 3-5 Big 12) couldn’t find a better opportunity to pick up a crucial win for their NCAA tournament hopes if they find an escape route.

After all, the marquee game on the board is the No. 12 Kentucky Wildcats against the No. 5 Kansas Jayhawks at the legendary Allen Fieldhouse. TyTy Washington is questionable for the Wildcats as he recovers from an ankle injury and his status could hold the key to guessing who the winner will be. Britain have been perfect at home but have losses away from home to Notre Dame, LSU and Auburn already this season.

Here’s the full schedule of the top 25 teams in college basketball for Saturday, January 29, with odds from DraftKing’s Sportsbook:
