In a typical college basketball season, and to a lesser degree this season, February typically means rematch games in most conferences. For 2021, several leagues are playing back-to-back games, so rematches are immediate. But for the others, including most power conferences, we will see the usual second meetings between teams for the rest of the regular season.

Having the evidence of an earlier matchup just a short while ago benefits bettors, of course. However, expecting the same result the second time around is too easy — and usually not a sound strategy. A lot of things can affect the way the teams compete in the rematch, including momentum changes, personnel differences and, perhaps most importantly, adjustments made by the coaching staffs.

So which coaches have proven best and worst in rematches with their current teams? Who is best and worst in revenge games when having won the initial matchup? Let’s see if we can uncover any betting systems to keep in mind as we roll into the second halves of most conference schedules.
