College Basketball Team Rankings - February 13, 2012


Here are the College Basketball Betting Market Team Rankings as of February 13, 2012.  These rankings use the Vegas point spreads to derive an implied team by team ranking.  My original post of the rankings has more detail on the methodology.

Ohio State dropped out of the top spot to number two this week, with their Saturday loss against Michigan State being the key driver.  Kentucky now holds the number 1 spot with a slim half point lead.

Wichita State moved up three spots in the rankings to number 9 (identical to kenpom.com), and also managed to crack the Top 25 in the AP poll.
