College basketball betting focuses on the Jimmy V Classic this week with some tops teams like Florida and Memphis aiming to beat the odds.

The Florida Gators are off to a 7-2 SU and 4-1-1 ATS start to the 2013 season, and they'll square off against the Memphis Tigers on Tuesday night in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Memphis is 7-1 SU and 4-2 ATS so far this season.

Both teams have played in low-scoring games in 2013 with the Tigers going 1-4 on the UNDER this season and the Gators going 1-5 on the UNDER. The Florida vs. Memphis game is the second game of a double-header in the Jimmy V Classic, with the first game taking place between the Pittsburgh Panthers and the Cincinnati Bearcats.

On Thursday night for fans who bet on college basketball, Madison Square Garden will host the Carquest Auto Parts Classic between the Duke Blue Devils and the UCLA Bruins. UCLA is off to a respectable 9-1 SU and 6-3 ATS start, but that includes a 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS start in games in which the Bruins were favored by 10 points or more.

When favored by nine or less, the Bruins are 0-2 ATS. Duke is 7-2 SU and 5-4 ATS so far.

Wrapping up the week's college basketball action at Madison Square Garden is the Gotham Classic between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday. Ohio State is still undefeated with a 10-0 SU and 5-4 ATS record including a 4-1 ATS record over its last five games, while Notre Dame has struggled early with an 8-3 SU and 3-5-1 ATS mark.
