|04-08-19||Texas Tech +108 v. Virginia||77-85||Loss||-100||9 h 10 m||Show|
6 Unit Play. Take #811 Texas Tech (+105 ML) over Virginia (9:25p.m., Monday, April 8 CBS) Virginia has been scrapping by of late while Texas Tech has been dominating opponents. Expect that to hold true again as the national champions while reside in Lubbock, TX. The Red Raiders are just as good as the Cavaliers on defense and I feel they have the most explosive player on the court. Texas Tech is 11-0 ATS in their last 11 games against teams with a winning record. Virginia is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 NCAA Tournament games.
|04-06-19||Texas Tech v. Michigan State -2.5||Top||61-51||Loss||-105||31 h 16 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #802 Michigan State over Texas Tech (8:49p.m., Saturday, April 6 CBS) Michigan State has an advantage over the other 3 teams in Minneapolis in that they have been here many times before. Texas Tech, Virginia, and Auburn are just happy to be here where Coach Izzo has stated be might need a second championship to validate his coaching career. Michigan State knocked out the projected best team in the NCAA Tournament last Sunday and should be able to move onto the final game on Monday. When Michigan State losses in the final four it is generally because they do not have the best team and overachieved to get here. That will not the be the case on Saturday, as Michigan State is the much better offensive team in this match-up and will pull away late to win this game by 5-7 points. The Spartans are 26-9 ATS in their last 35 games.
|04-06-19||Auburn +6 v. Virginia||62-63||Win||100||29 h 32 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #803 Auburn over Virginia (6:09p.m., Saturday, April 6 CBS) Just believe Auburn will get hot at some point in this game from the 3-point line and take this game down to the wire. Auburn is the team with a cloud hanging over their shoulder with Bruce Pearl and I believe that has motivated them through this entire country. Virginia has been playing with the most pressure of any team in this tournament and tonight will be no different. They should have lost to Purdue on Saturday and will not be as fortunate as they were in that game. Virginia is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 NCAA Tournament games. Auburn is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games.
|04-04-19||Lipscomb +110 v. Texas||66-81||Loss||-100||8 h 26 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take Lipscomb over Texas (7p.m., Thursday, April 4 ESPN) This championship just means more to mid-majors and expect the Bison to complete the task on Thursday. Lipscomb is 22-7 ATS (1 push) in their last 30 nonconference games. Texas is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games.
|04-03-19||South Florida +6 v. DePaul||96-100||Win||100||8 h 28 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #717 South Florida over DePaul (8p.m., Wednesday, April 3 ESPNU) Game 2 of this best of three series takes place tonight just outside of Chicago. USF needs to win 1 of the final 2 games to claim the CBI Championship. 64% of the money is coming in on the visitor and DePaul has never been a team good enough to lay this many points with. USF is 11-3 ATS in their last 14 road games. DePaul is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
Best of Luck – Doc’s Sports
|04-02-19||Texas v. TCU -1||Top||58-44||Loss||-115||33 h 31 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #712 TCU over Texas (9:30p.m., Tuesday, April 2 ESPN) I am a big believer in riding teams that have had success in previous NIT Tournament. TCU won this two years ago and has been playing dominating basketball over this tournament winning all three of their games by at least 13 points. The Horned Frogs have beaten Texas twice already this season and the Longhorns still have injuries and I just do not believe they are all that excited to be in this game. This spread is 3 points short and I fully expect TCU to win this game by double digits. TCU has covered the spread against Texas in 5 of their last 6 meetings. TCU is 17-7 ATS in their last 24 neutral site games. Texas is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games. Shaka Smart has been a disappointing hire thus far and I do not see things changing in this game.
|04-01-19||DePaul v. South Florida -1.5||61-63||Win||100||8 h 6 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #702 South Florida over DePaul (7p.m., Monday, April 1 ESPN U) This is a best of 3 games series, and it is imperative that USF wins this game with the next two games being played in Chicago. The Bulls are 17-5 at home this season and we will pound them with this short number. DePaul is 3-14 ATS (1 push) in their last 18 games played on Monday. USF is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 nonconference games.
|03-31-19||Michigan State v. Duke -2||68-67||Loss||-109||6 h 40 m||Show|
8 Unit Play. Take #692 Duke over Michigan State (5:05p.m., Sunday, March 31 CBS) Coach K is 11-1 straight-up against Coach Izzo. ENOUGH SAID!
Best of Luck – Doc’s Sports
|03-30-19||Purdue +4.5 v. Virginia||75-80||Loss||-109||9 h 23 m||Show|
2 Unit Play. Take #861 Purdue over Virginia (8:49p.m., Saturday March 30 TBS) Purdue has been hot and if they can stabilize this game early, Virginia will start to feel the pressure of making it to the Final Four. Virginia is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 NCAA Tournament games. Purdue is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 NCAA Tournament games.
|03-30-19||Texas Tech v. Gonzaga -4||75-69||Loss||-112||7 h 44 m||Show|
1 Unit Play. Take 684 Gonzaga over Texas Tech (6:09p.m., Saturday March 30 TBS) Texas Tech would have been down big on Thursday if they were playing Gonzaga instead of Michigan. The Wolverines could not throw the ball into the ocean on Thursday and had trouble scoring points for most of the season. Gonzaga played a tough Florida State team and never really were threatened in that game. Expect them to pull away late and win this game by 7-9 points. Gonzaga is 9-4 ATS in their last 14 games against Big 12 teams.
|03-29-19||Houston v. Kentucky -2.5||58-62||Win||100||11 h 50 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #672 Kentucky over Houston (9:57p.m., Friday, March 29 TBS) Houston has not faced many teams this talented in quite some time and I expect Kentucky to pull away late in the second half and march onto the Elite 8. Houston is legit but I see a Kentucky – North Carolina Elite 8 game that everyone wants. Houston is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games against SEC teams. Kentucky is 5-1 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 8 NCAA Tournament games.
|03-29-19||Auburn v. North Carolina -5.5||97-80||Loss||-109||8 h 14 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #674 North Carolina over Auburn (7:29p.m., Friday, March 29 CBS) Auburn likes to play fast but that should not be any issue for North Carolina. Auburn shot lights out earlier against Kansas and knocked them out in the first 5 minutes of that game. I just do not believe that they can do that again in this game. North Carolina is healthy and I believe they are destined to reach the Elite 8 for a rematch against Kentucky. Auburn is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against ACC teams. North Carolina is 20-8 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 30 games against SEC teams.
|03-28-19||Texas Tech +115 v. Michigan||63-44||Win||115||11 h 59 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #657 Texas Tech over Michigan (9:39p.m., Thursday, March 28 CBS) Just do like this Michigan team all that much this year and believe Texas Tech can reach the final four by winning this region. Michigan is still extremely well coached, but they do not have much top end NBA talent and are not a lights out three points shooting team. Those are trademarks of most Michigan teams. Texas Tech is for real and they dominated Buffalo for 38 of the 40 minutes and can do the same thing to Michigan. They play both sides of the floor and I believe have more top end talent than does Michigan. Texas Tech is 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against Big 10 teams.
|03-28-19||Purdue v. Tennessee||Top||99-94||Loss||-110||79 h 17 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #652 Tennessee over Purdue (7:29p.m., Thursday, March 28 TBS) Purdue looked much better than Tennessee in the first two rounds but this is the game that has tripped them up in recent years and 2019 should be no different. Tennessee has experience and did not have to replace 4 of their 5 starters from last season. Purdue shot lights out against Villanova and I just do not believe that they can do that for a second straight game. The Boilermakers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a victory of more than 20 points in their previous game. Purdue has been blown out in the Sweet 16 the last two years and I see them losing this game by 7-9 points against a hungry Tennessee team.
|03-26-19||Creighton v. TCU -3.5||58-71||Win||100||10 h 2 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #620 TCU over Creighton (9p.m., March 26 ESPN) TCU won this tournament two years ago and should be able to get back to New York with a victory tonight in Fort Worth. The Horned Frogs are 11-0 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games. This will be the Bluejays first road game in the NIT and will lose it by 7-9 points.
|03-26-19||Charleston Southern v. Hampton -1.5||67-73||Win||100||8 h 4 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #632 Hampton over Charleston Southern (7pm., March 26) The home/away records of these two teams are glaring. The Pirates are 11-3 at home and the Buccaneers are 4-10 in road games. Hampton is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games.
|03-26-19||Presbyterian v. Marshall -5.5||66-83||Win||100||8 h 4 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #630 Marshall over Presbyterian (7p.m., March 26) Marshall is a tough out at home and sooner or later they will get the 3-ball going and pull away to win this game by double digits. The Herd are 13-3 at home this season and this will be the Blue Hose second straight road game in the CIT. Marshall is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games.
|03-24-19||Nebraska v. TCU -4||72-88||Win||100||10 h 22 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #900 TCU over Nebraska (9:30p.m., Sunday, March 24 ESPNU) Just do not believe Nebraska can win this game on the road with a depleted roster. If they lose Tim Miles will likely be fired and that should occur against the No. 1 seed. The Frogs won the first game by double digits in the NIT and I see this one as a double-digit victory as well. TCU is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 nonconference games. Nebraska is 2-8 ATS following an ATS loss in their previous game.
|03-24-19||Ohio State v. Houston -5.5||Top||59-74||Win||100||25 h 9 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #872 Houston over Ohio State (8:40p.m., Sunday, March 24 TNT) Ohio State went out in the Round of 32 last season against a mid-major and I see the same thing happening again on Sunday. Houston is legit and dominated for most of the season in the AAC. Unlike Iowa State, the Cougars can rebound, and I do not believe the Buckeyes will be able to dominate on the board in this game. When Ohio State losses games it tends to come big and thus if Houston wins this game, they should easily cover the spread as well. Ohio State is 1-8 ATS in their last 9 NCAA Tournament games. Houston is 8-3 ATS in their last neutral site games.
|03-24-19||Buffalo v. Texas Tech -3.5||58-78||Win||100||7 h 58 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #870 Texas Tech over Buffalo (6:10p.m., Sunday, March 24 TNT) I expect Texas Tech to win this region and thus we will take them today with this short number. Buffalo is legit but Texas Tech can get it done on both sides of the basketball. Texas Tech is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games.
|03-23-19||Auburn -2 v. Kansas||89-75||Win||100||11 h 40 m||Show|
5 Unit Play. Take #849 Auburn over Kansas (9:45p.m., Saturday, March 23 TBS) Auburn is on a roll and Kansas is just not the same team when they play away from Lawrence. Auburn is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against Big 12 teams. Kansas is 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games following a victory in their previous game. The injuries of the Jayhawks will become evident in this game and Auburn will advance to the Sweet 16.
Best of Luck – Doc’s Sports
|03-23-19||Villanova +3.5 v. Purdue||61-87||Loss||-107||9 h 20 m||Show|
5 Unit Play. Take #837 Villanova over Purdue (9p.m., Saturday, March 23 TNT) Neither team is overly talented and thus we will side with the defending champions getting points. Purdue is beatable if Carsen Edwards is off on his shot. Villanova is 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games against Big 10 teams Purdue is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games against Big East teams. 61% of the money is coming in on the underdog and that gives us confidence we are on the right side.
|03-23-19||Maryland v. LSU -2.5||67-69||Loss||-114||1 h 51 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #842 LSU over Maryland (12:10p.m., Saturday, March 23 CBS) The Tigers are one of the most talented teams in the tournament and should be able to defeat the Terrapins by 6-8 points. The line is low based on the distractions surrounds the LSU program but on paper they are a much better team than this young Maryland team. Maryland is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 NCAA Tournament games. LSU is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against Big 10 teams.
|03-22-19||Ohio State +5.5 v. Iowa State||62-59||Win||100||57 h 31 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #813 Ohio State over Iowa State (9:50p.m., Friday, March 22 TBS) Iowa State is the hot public betting team now since they are coming off a Big 12 Conference Championship, but I feel they are being overvalued. Both teams are similar in how they played to close out the regular season but Ohio State got back their best player and I feel that they can take this game down to the wire. Iowa State is 1-4 ATS (1 push) in their last 6 games against Big 10 teams.
|03-22-19||UCF v. VCU||73-58||Win||100||56 h 29 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #799 UCF over VCU (9:40p.m., Friday, March 22 CBS) The Golden Knights have flown under the radar most of the season despite having the tallest player in college basketball. The AAC was a much better conference than the A-10 this season and UCF just played better competition over the last two months of conference play. UCF is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games. VCU is 1-6 ATS (1 push) in their last 8 games played on Friday.
|03-22-19||Georgia State v. Houston -12||55-84||Win||100||54 h 7 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #816 Houston over Georgia State (7:20p.m., Friday, March 22 TBS) Houston is the best team in the country not coming from a power conference. They get it done on both sides of the floor and will win this game by double digits. The Panthers are not as strong of a team as their past NCAA Tournament teams and I just do not see them developing any magic this March. Houston is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games against teams from the Sun Belt.
|03-22-19||Oregon v. Wisconsin -1.5||72-54||Loss||-107||52 h 33 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #826 Wisconsin over Oregon (4:30p.m. Friday, March 22 TBS) We will go against the public in this game, as Oregon is the hot pick after winning the PAC-12 Conference Tournament. Wisconsin just does not match up well with Michigan State, but playing a different team from a different conference should get them back on track. Wisconsin has won 4 of their last 5 games and played much better competition throughout the year compared to Oregon. Wisconsin is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games against PAC-12 teams.
|03-22-19||Cal-Irvine v. Kansas State -3.5||70-64||Loss||-109||3 h 34 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #828 Kansas State -4 over UC Irvine (2p.m., Friday, March 22 TBS)
|03-22-19||Northern Kentucky v. Texas Tech -13||57-72||Win||100||48 h 18 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #820 Texas Tech over Northern Kentucky (1:30p.m., Friday, March 22 TNT) Texas Tech laid an egg against West Virginia in the Big 12 Tournament but that may have been a blessing in disguise. This is the best team in the league, and I believe they have a good chance to win this region. They have still won 9 of their last 10 and most of those games have not been close. WKU is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win in their previous game. Texas Tech is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games vs teams with a winning record.
|03-21-19||Old Dominion +13 v. Purdue||48-61||Push||0||57 h 48 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #759 Old Dominion over Purdue (9:50p.m., Thursday, March 21 TBS) Just not sold on this Purdue team being this big of a favorite. The Boilermakers won the Big 10 but lost 2 of their last 3 games down the stretch and have a very streaky start player in Carsen Edwards. He can be a volume scorer and seems to force the action when his shot in not going. The Monarchs are still not getting much respect from the odds makers despite winning the regular season and conference tournament in CUSA. They were an underdog in the championship game, and I feel they will be able to keep this game in single digits. Old Dominion is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 nonconference games. Purdue is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against teams with a winning record.
|03-21-19||Baylor v. Syracuse -2||Top||78-69||Loss||-110||57 h 39 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #788 Syracuse over Baylor (9:57p.m., Thursday, March 21 TRUTV) Just do not believe Baylor can go very far in this tournament without Tristan Clark. The Bears have lost 4 straight games and were not competitive in their last game out. This will be a battle of teams that like to play zone and I believe Syracuse will have the edge from the 3-point line. Baylor is 1-8 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 11 games overall. Syracuse has covered the spread in 4 straight NCAA Tournament games.
|03-21-19||Florida v. Nevada -2||70-61||Loss||-110||54 h 32 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #778 Nevada over Florida (6:50p.m., Thursday, March 21 TNT) Florida really struggles to score points on offense and I believe the experience of Nevada will allow them to emerge victorious I this game. This may be a defensive grinder, but unless Florida shoots much better from the three point lie than their average, they will not win this game. Nevada has faced huge spread all season long and they have just 4 losses on the season. Nevada is 30-3 after a loss under Eric Musselman and 19-6 ATS (1 push) in their last 26 games following a loss as well. Florida is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss.
|03-21-19||Northeastern v. Kansas -7||53-87||Win||100||51 h 1 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #784 Kansas over Northwestern (4p.m., Thursday, March 21 TNT) This is not a typical Kansas year, as injuries and suspensions have taken its toll on this game and they did not win the Big 12 this year. But they are still talented and if they can make it to the Sweet 16, they will get to play in Kansas City, giving them a huge home crowd edge. Kansas is 39-18 ATS (3 pushes) in their last 60 games following a loss.
|03-20-19||Loyola Marymount -1.5 v. California Baptist||56-55||Loss||-109||11 h 19 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #745 Loyola Marymount over Cal Baptist (10p.m., Wednesday, March 20) One of these teams play in a much better conference and we will side with the Lions tonight. LMU is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. Generally, the favorite does well in these lesser tournaments and expect that to be the case on Wednesday.
|03-20-19||Arizona State v. St. John's +115||74-65||Loss||-100||10 h 53 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #714 St Johns over Arizona State (9:10p.m., Wednesday, March 20 Tru TV) Everyone is on ASU tonight and thus the value lies with the more talented Red Storm. St. Johns did not perform well down the stretch but making it to the First Four will lift a weight off of this team. They are the better offensive team and I believe that will be the difference tonight in Dayton. ASU lost this game last year and do not feel they are better in 2018-2019. ASU is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games against Big East teams. St Johns is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS loss in their previous game.
|03-19-19||Loyola-Chicago +9.5 v. Creighton||61-70||Win||100||9 h 28 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #689 Loyola Chicago over Creighton (9p.m., Tuesday, March 19 ESPNU) This is a lot of points to be giving for a team that is somewhat disappointed to be here. With a total in the mid 130s we will grab the points in this game. If the Ramblers can control the pace of this game they should be able to take it down to the wire. The Bluejays are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games following an ATS loss in their previous game.
|03-19-19||Hofstra +9.5 v. NC State||78-84||Win||100||7 h 30 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #673 Hofstra over NC State (7p.m., Tuesday, March 19 ESPN2) The Wolfpack feel that they got snubbed and are not that excited about playing in this game. The Pride are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 nonconference games. NC State is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss in their previous game.
|03-19-19||Fairleigh Dickinson -1.5 v. Prairie View A&M||82-76||Win||100||7 h 11 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take Fairleigh Dickinson over Prairie View A&M (6:40p.m., Tuesday, March 19 TRUTV) Both teams have been covering machines of late, but we will side with the favorite. The line keeps moving their way despite 52% of the money coming in on the underdog. The Knights are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games. The Panthers are 0-4 ATS (1 push) in their last 5 nonconference games.
|03-17-19||St. Louis +2 v. St Bonaventure||55-53||Win||100||2 h 50 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #647 Saint Louis over St Bonaventure (1p.m., Sunday, March 17 CBS) This is a winner take all game with the A-10 Champion going to the NCAA Tournament. The Billikens are starting to peak at the right time and should be able to win this game on Sunday. Saint Louisa is 24-7 ATS (1 push) in their last 32 games played on Sunday.
|03-16-19||Western Kentucky v. Old Dominion +2||56-62||Win||100||9 h 3 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #636 Old Dominion +2 over Western Kentucky (8:30p.m., Saturday, March 16 CBSSN) The Monarchs are the clear-cut best team in the league this year and should be able to finish it off in the conference tournament tonight in Frisco, TX. ODU has already beaten WKU twice this season and they need to win this game as well to make the NCAA Tournament. The line has been over adjusted and expect them to take care of business tonight in Frisco.
|03-16-19||Iowa State v. Kansas -1||78-66||Loss||-110||7 h 38 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #626 Kansas -1.5 over Iowa State (6p.m., Saturday, March 16 ESPN) The Jayhawks may have more to play for in this game, as a win may get them into the Midwest Region and games in Kansas City. Iowa State was in a terrible slump to close out the regular season losing three straight games. They got to play Kansas State without Dean Wade but Kansas has been playing with this same team for the last couple of weeks.
|03-16-19||Tennessee v. Kentucky -1||82-78||Loss||-114||4 h 51 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #612 Kentucky -1.5 over Tennessee (3:30p.m., Saturday, March 16 ESPN) Kentucky will be able to knock off Tennessee for the second time in three tries this season. Getting Reid Travis back is big and should help them inside against this veteran Tennessee team. The Vols have not been the same team on the road as they are when playing in Knoxville. Kentucky is 32-15 ATS (4 pushes) in their last 51 neutral site games.
|03-16-19||Wisconsin +6 v. Michigan State||Top||55-67||Loss||-110||2 h 36 m||Show|
7 Unit Play. Take #605 Wisconsin +6 over Michigan State (1p.m., Saturday, March 16 CBS) Conference Tournament Game of the Year. Wisconsin should be able to keep this game low scoring and take it down to the wire. Wisconsin has won 4 straight games and played Michigan State tough in the only meeting this season. Michigan State still has an eye on getting the job done in the NCAA Tournament and does not care as much about winning this conference tournament and likely playing Michigan again on Sunday. Michigan State is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 neutral site games. The Underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. Expect this to a 3-point game either way and we will collect with whoever comes out on top.
|03-15-19||Duke -3 v. North Carolina||74-73||Loss||-109||11 h 32 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #841 Duke over North Carolina (9:30 p.m., Friday, March 15 ESPN) Just do not believe North Carolina can beat this Duke team three times in one season. Zion looked good last night after a long layoff and if Duke can make anything from the 3 point line they should win this game by 6-8 points. North Carolina is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games.
|03-15-19||Central Michigan v. Buffalo -12.5||81-85||Loss||-108||7 h 23 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #836 Buffalo over Central Michigan (6:30p.m., Friday, March 15 CBSSN) The Bulls are far and away the best team in the league and should have no problem taking care of business tonight in Cleveland. Buffalo is 19-6 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 27 neutral site games. The favorite is 5-1 ATS (1 push) in the last 7 meetings between Central Michigan and Buffalo.
|03-14-19||Texas v. Kansas -2.5||57-65||Win||100||11 h 60 m||Show|
6 Unit Play. Take #728 Kansas over Texas (9:30p.m., Thursday, March 14 ESPN2) The Jayhawks are banged up but this game is in Kansas City and I still trust Bill Self much more than I do Shaka Smart. Texas beat Kanas in the last meeting but the Jayhawks are a much better team when playing in the state of Kansas. They will have a huge edge in home crowd and Texas is just not that good. We will lay the short number with Kansas and expect them to win by 6-8 points.
|03-14-19||St. John's v. Marquette -2||54-86||Win||100||8 h 13 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #686 Marquette over St Johns (7p.m., Thursday, March 14 FS1) Just do not believe St Johns can beat Marquette three times in one season. The Golden Eagles have been struggling down the stretch and lost out on a regular season title they had in their hands. Despite winning last night, St Johns has still lost 3 of their last 4 games and all three of those losses have come against teams that are .500 or below in the Big East. We have seen through the early days in this tournament that chalk and teams with byes have been holding up and expect that to happen once again in this game.
|03-14-19||UNLV v. San Diego State +1||55-63||Win||100||7 h 39 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #756 San Diego State over UNLV (5:30p.m., Thursday, March 14 CBSSN) UNLV has had little success in this tournament despite hosting in on their own floor. San Diego State has already beaten them in Las Vegas this season and will beat them for a third time today. The Aztecs must win this tournament to reach the NCAA Tournament and expect them to advance to play Nevada tomorrow night.
|03-14-19||Indiana v. Ohio State||75-79||Loss||-110||43 h 18 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #713 Indiana over Ohio State (12:30p.m., Thursday, March 14 BTN) Both teams need this win, but I just believe Indiana is playing better at the moment. Ohio State will get a boast with Kaleb Wesson back in the line-up, but they will enter this game having lost 3 straight games. The Hoosiers have won 4 straight games including a pair of blowouts in their last two games. They are getting better and healthy each game and will advance to the quarterfinals of the Big 10 Tournament. This line is short and we will grab it in a big way.
|03-13-19||Vanderbilt v. Texas A&M -3.5||52-69||Win||100||11 h 33 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #658 Texas A&M over Vanderbilt (9:30p.m., Thursday, March 13 SECN) This is a low number for a team that did not win a game this season during SEC play. Texas A&M won 6 games in SEC play compared Vanderbilt that went 0-18. Vanderbilt is 3-13 ATS in their last 16 neutral site games. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
|03-13-19||DePaul v. St. John's -4.5||74-82||Win||100||10 h 29 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #654 St Johns over DePaul (9:30p.m., Thursday, March 13 FS1) The Red Storm must win this game and I finally believe that can put together a complete 40 minute game. The Blue Demons have always been a bottom feeder team in the Big East and you just cannot count on them to win games consistently in the tournament. DePaul is 6-20 ATS in their last 26 neutral site games.
|03-13-19||Nebraska v. Rutgers +1.5||68-61||Loss||-110||25 h 23 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #648 Rutgers over Nebraska (6:30p.m., Wednesday, March 13 BTN) Tim Miles days are numbered as head coach at Nebraska. This should have been an NCAA Tournament team but they fell apart once Isaac Copeland went down and will likely be one and done in this tournament. Nebraska was dominated by Iowa for most of their last game before Iowa choked but I do not see them carry that momentum into this game. Nebraska is 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games. Rutgers is 6-1 ATS (1 push) in their last 8 games.
|03-12-19||St. Mary's v. Gonzaga OVER 136.5||60-47||Loss||-109||10 h 56 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #616 Over in St Mary’s vs Gonzaga (9p.m., Tuesday, March 12 ESPN) The Gaels cannot tentative in this game if they have any hopes of winning it. They are going to have to score in the 70s and thus expect this game to go over the posted total. This line keeps coming down and now I believe the value lies with the over. Gonzaga has gone over the posted total in 4 of their last 5 games.
|03-12-19||Pittsburgh v. Boston College +1.5||80-70||Loss||-110||8 h 58 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #606 Boston College over Pittsburgh (7p.m., Tuesday, March 12 ESPNU) The Panthers finished at the bottom of the standings in the ACC and we will wade them again on Tuesday. Boston College won the only meeting with Pittsburgh this season by 9 points and they should be able to win this game by 4-6 points. Boston College is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games.
|03-12-19||Wake Forest +7.5 v. Miami-FL||71-79||Loss||-105||1 h 57 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #601 Wake Forest over Miami (12p.m., Tuesday, March 12 ESPN2) Miami is not good enough to be laying this many points against any ACC team. Wake Forest played pretty well for most of their last game against Florida State being falling apart in the end. I believe that they can hang with Florida State for all 40 minutes. Wake Forest is 4-1 ATS (1 push) in their last 6 games against Miami.
|03-11-19||Ball State v. Eastern Michigan -2.5||61-43||Loss||-109||8 h 36 m||Show|
6 Unit Play. Take #782 Eastern Michigan over Ball State (7p.m., Monday, March 11 ESPN+) The Eagles look to sweep the Cardinals three straight times this season. They finished 3 games ahead of the Cardinals in the MAC Standing and playing this game at home should allow them to advance to Cleveland later this week. Ball State is 8-26 ATS in their last 34 MAC games. Eastern Michigan is 18-7 ATS in their last 25 MAC games. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

|03-10-19||Wisconsin -2.5 v. Ohio State||73-67||Win||100||17 h 52 m||Show|
7 Unit Play. Take #843 Wisconsin over Ohio State (4:30p.m., Sunday, March 9 CBS) Due to the Saturday results in the Big 10, Wisconsin now must win this game in order to secure a double bye next week in the Big 10 Tournament. Ohio State has been leaking oil over the last few weeks and will enter this game having lost 5 of their last 7 games. Through in the fact that Kaleb Wesson is out for this game and they will have trouble defending Wisconsin in the paint. The Buckeyes will get a boast from senior day, but that will not be enough to allow them to win this game. The favorite is 11-4 ATS in the last 15 meetings. Ohio State is 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games. Wisconsin is 13-5 ATS (1 push) in their last 19 road games.

|03-09-19||Michigan +3.5 v. Michigan State||63-75||Loss||-109||8 h 28 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #649 Michigan +3.5 over Michigan State (8p.m., Saturday, March 9 ESPN) A conference title in on the line tonight when Michigan heads to East Lansing to take on the Spartans. Michigan State is really injured, and this is a game Michigan can get. Not sure if the Spartans are good enough to beat the Wolverines twice in one season. Michigan is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games at Michigan State.
|03-09-19||Duke +3 v. North Carolina||70-79||Loss||-100||24 h 55 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #697 Duke over North Carolina (6p.m., Saturday, March 9 ESPN) Just do not believe North Carolina can beat this Duke team twice in one season. They are not favored and have a chance for a No. 1 seed in both the conference tournament and NCAA Tournament. Duke almost lost to Wake Forest at home this week but expect a much better effort on Saturday. We will take the points in this game.
|03-09-19||St. John's v. Xavier -2.5||68-81||Win||100||23 h 54 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #608 Xavier over St Johns (5p.m., Saturday, March 9 FOX) Just do not have any confidence in St Johns at the moment. The Red Storm have lost 3 of their last 4 games including an 11 point home loss to Xavier. The Musketeers have creep back onto the bubble and this is a must win game for them to keep those hopes alive. They will enter this game having won 5 of their last 6 games have 3 of those wins have come on the road. Xavier is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games.
|03-09-19||Arizona State v. Arizona -1||72-64||Loss||-110||22 h 54 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #654 Arizona over Arizona State (4p.m., Saturday, March 9 CBS) The Wildcats have had a miserable year but beating ASU on Senior Day and knocking them off of the bubble would have a great way to close out the regular season. Arizona is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against ASU in Tucson. ASU is 6-13 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 12 road games.
|03-09-19||UNLV v. Colorado State -2||65-60||Loss||-111||4 h 29 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #656 Colorado State -2.5 over UNLV (4p.m., Saturday, March 9 ESPN3)
|03-09-19||Villanova -3 v. Seton Hall||75-79||Loss||-110||1 h 56 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #611 Villanova over Seton Hall (12p.m., Saturday, March 9 FOX) Despite having a down year Villanova has a chance to win the Big East Regular Season Title. Seton Hall is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games. Villanova is 35-17 ATS in their last 52 road games.
|03-08-19||Bradley v. Missouri State -2.5||61-58||Loss||-103||3 h 51 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #880 Missouri State over Bradley (3:35p.m., Friday, March 8 FSMW) The Braves are not the same team on the road or in neutral sites as they are when playing at home. Missouri State beat Bradley twice this season already and expect them to complete the trifecta on Friday in St Louis. The Bears are 9-4 ATS (1 push) in their last 14 games against the Braves.

|03-07-19||UC-Santa Barbara -2 v. CS-Northridge||76-74||Push||0||11 h 45 m||Show|
6 Unit Play. Take #625 Santa Barbara over Northridge (10p.m., Thursday, March 7) The Matadors are coming off a trip to Hawaii over the weekend and that may affect their performance in this game. The Gauchos won the first meeting by 6 points and that is how I see this one going as well. Santa Barbara is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games at Northridge.

|03-06-19||Fresno State v. San Diego State -2.5||76-74||Loss||-108||11 h 45 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #820 San Diego State -2.5 over Fresno State (10p.m., Wednesday, March 6 CBSSN) This game will be for third place in the MWC and the chance to avoid the No. 1 seed in the MWC Tournament until the final game. San Diego State has won 6 of their last 7 games including a dominating victory over Nevada. With a return trip to Reno over the weekend this is an important home game for the Aztecs to get. SDSU is 33-16 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 51 home games. Fresno State is 0-3 ATS (1 push) in their last 4 games played on Wednesday.
|03-06-19||Tennessee-Martin -1 v. Eastern Illinois||78-71||Win||100||10 h 21 m||Show|
6 Unit Play. Take #849 UT Martin -1.5 over Eastern Illinois (9:30p.m., Wednesday, March 6) The Panthers are in free fall now and will enter this game having lost 5 straight games and 8 of their last 9 games. Just do not believe the Panthers are good enough to beat the Skyhawks 3 times in one season. UT Martin is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games. Eastern Illinois is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games.

|03-05-19||Kentucky -5 v. Ole Miss||80-76||Loss||-110||9 h 21 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #639 Kentucky over Mississippi (9p.m., Tuesday, March 5 ESPN) Kentucky has not been losing much of late and even when they do it usually comes against the other top teams in the conference (LSU & Tennessee). The Rebels have been going the other way losing 3 of their last 4 games and seeing their tournament status come into jeopardy. That being said Kentucky has much more talent than does Ole Miss and that will become evident again on Tuesday. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. Kentucky is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games.
|03-05-19||Kansas v. Oklahoma||68-81||Loss||-110||9 h 18 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #633 Kansas over Oklahoma (9p.m., Tuesday, March 5 ESPN2) Just do not think Kansas is going to make it easy on Texas Tech and Kansas State to win the Big 12. A loss by Kansas tonight would eliminate them for the championship for the first time in 16 years. The Sooners are 1-4 ATS (1 push) in their last 6 games following a victory in their previous game. Kansas gets to prolong the streak at least until Saturday with a victory tonight in Norman.
|03-05-19||Utah State v. Colorado State +8||100-96||Win||100||9 h 18 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #636 Colorado State over Utah State (9p.m., Tuesday, March 5 ATTSN) Everything is on the line tonight in Fort Collins for the Aggies. A win tonight guarantees them a share of the conference championship. Not sure how much they will have left in the tank after an emotional victory over the Wolf Pack on Saturday. Now they must go on the road in a hostile environment and it will be hard for them to stay up for 40 minutes in this game. The Aggies win but it comes close they the experts believe.
|03-04-19||Kansas State v. TCU +1.5||64-52||Loss||-110||26 h 14 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #866 TCU over Kansas State (9p.m., Monday, March 4 ESPN2) Does not seem to be much carryover in the Big 12 this year from game to game. TCU looked terrible over the weekend but expect them to bounce back on Monday against a team with a ton of pressure. If the Wildcats win this game, they will be able to clinch the regular season title next Saturday with a very winnable game hosting Oklahoma. That will lockout Kansas from sharing the title for the first time in 15 years. That is a lot of pressure and I just do not believe K-State will be up for the challenge. The home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 match-ups.
|03-03-19||Michigan -1 v. Maryland||69-62||Win||100||4 h 19 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #825 Michigan -1 over Maryland (3:45p.m., Sunday, March 3 CBS) Michigan needs to win this game in order to keep their hopes of a Big 10 Championship alive. The Terrapins are coming off a terrible performance against Penn State last time out and they also lost to Michigan by double digits last month. The road team has covered the spread in 4 of the last 5 meetings. Maryland is 1-6 ATS (1 push) in their last 8 games played on Sunday.

|03-02-19||Nevada -1.5 v. Utah State||Top||76-81||Loss||-110||26 h 17 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #735 Nevada over Utah State (8:30p.m., Saturday, March 2 CBSSN) Utah State has a chance to win the MWC with a victory this early evening but they will have their hands full with the Wolf Pack. Just do not believe the Aggies, picked 9th in the MWC, with a new coach can win this league. They are not a good match-up with the Pack, as Nevada has better size and experience and they will not be intimidated by playing at the Spectrum. The Wolf Pack won the first meeting by 23 points and they have the size to match-up with Sam Merrill and he will have to earn whatever points he gets. Nevada has covered the spread in 5 straight meetings against Utah State. Utah State is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games against teams with a winning record. Nevada is 25-12 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 39 games following an ATS loss in their previous game.
|02-28-19||Arizona State v. Oregon -3||51-79||Win||100||12 h 47 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. #660 Take Oregon over Arizona State (11p.m., Thursday, February 28 PAC12N) Just cannot trust the Sun Devils to win with any consistency, especially when playing on the road. Oregon has been playing a road heavy schedule of late and they will be ready for some home cooking tonight in Eugene. Arizona State just does not have the shooters to be able to win on the road with any regularity and they were not that impressive last time out against Cal. ASU is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games played on Thursday.
|02-27-19||Valparaiso v. Bradley -4.5||Top||42-67||Win||100||25 h 49 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #808 Bradley over Valparaiso (8p.m., Wednesday, February 27 ESPN+) The steam has come off of the Crusaders of late and they will enter this game having lost 8 of their last 10 games. The Braves have been going in the opposite directions having won 5 of their last 6 games and they need to continue winning games to avoid playing on Thursday of the MVC next week. Bradley has revenge on their minds after losing by double digits to Valparaiso earlier this season, but they will be able to win this game by 8-10 points. Valparaiso is 1-4 ATS (1 push) in their last 6 road games. Bradley is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games played on Wednesday.
|02-26-19||Wisconsin v. Indiana +2||73-75||Win||100||10 h 8 m||Show|
6 Unit Play. Take #634 Indiana over Wisconsin (9p.m., Tuesday, February 26 ESPN) This line keeps going down and it is for good reason. Indiana matches up well with Wisconsin and they are hitting the Badgers at the right time, playing a second straight road game. Wisconsin was lucky to beat Northwestern over the weekend and they are playing a team desperate for wins. Ethan Happ is becoming less and less effective for the Badgers and I am not sure if they will be able to make enough jump shots to win this game. Wisconsin is 0-3 ATS (1 push) in their last 4 games. The line opened at -3 and keeps coming down meaning we are on the correct side with the Hoosiers.
|02-25-19||Kansas State v. Kansas -4.5||49-64||Win||100||10 h 44 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #866 Kansas over Kansas State (9p.m., Monday, February 25 ESPN) Kansas is just a much better team when playing at home and I do not see them suffering their first loss of the season in Lawrence tonight. Kansas is coming off a 29-point loss to Texas Tech on Saturday but the Red Raiders shot out of their minds in that game and I do not see the Wildcats having that much success from the 3-point line tonight. Kansas is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games following a loss of more than 20 points in their previous game. The favorite is 18-6 ATS (2 pushes) in their 26 meetings. Kansas is 17-7 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 26 games against Kansas State.

3 Unit Play. Take #833 Michigan over Michigan State (3:45p.m., Sunday, February 24 CBS) The Spartans are really banged up at the moment and I just do not see them going into Ann Arbor and winning this game. The Wolverines are undefeated at home and Michigan State has been playing the weaker part of the schedule recently. Michigan is 11-1 ATS in their last 12 games played on Sunday.
Best of Luck – Doc’s Sports
|02-23-19||Kansas +6.5 v. Texas Tech||Top||62-91||Loss||-115||26 h 45 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #707 Kansas over Texas Tech (8p.m., Saturday, February 23 ESPN) The loser of this game is likely out of the conference championship race. I just do not believe Kansas will get run out of the building in Lubbock, TX. The Jayhawks have won 3 straight games and already beat the Red Raiders by 16 points earlier this season. The Red Raiders have won 4 straight games but those have come against 3 of the worst teams in the league. Kansas is getting a key player back for this game and they are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games against Texas Tech. The Red Raiders are 4-9 ATS (1 push) in their last 14 games against teams with a winning record. The Jayhawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
|02-23-19||Utah State v. Boise State +3.5||78-71||Loss||-105||4 h 27 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #682 Boise State +3 over Utah State (4p.m., Saturday, February 23 Stadium) Just do not believe Utah State can run the table until the game against Nevada in 7 days. Taco Bell Arena is always a tough place to play and Utah State has been playing over the head for most of the conference portion of the season. I still believe the MWC is a one bid league unless Nevada losses in the conference tournament. Utah State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Underdog has covered the spread in 4 straight meetings.
|02-23-19||Iowa State -1.5 v. TCU||72-75||Loss||-107||2 h 25 m||Show|
7 Unit Play. Take #645 Iowa State -1.5 over TCU (2p.m., Saturday, February 23 ESPN2) One of the most surprising results this season was Iowa State getting pounded at home by TCU. I just do not believe the Horned Frogs are good enough to beat Iowa State twice in one season. The Frogs have lost 3 straight games since beating Iowa State and two of them have come against teams that will likely not make the NCAA Tournament. This is a must win game for Iowa State if they have any hopes of winning the Big 12 and I expect them to dominate for 40 minutes. The Cyclones are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss in their previous game. TCU is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Big 12 games. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
|02-22-19||Harvard v. Brown +2||79-88||Win||100||8 h 0 m||Show|
3 unit Play. Take #854 Brown over Harvard (7p.m., Friday, February 22 ESPN+) This line tells me that Harvard may struggle in this game. This will be the third straight road game for Harvard and with Yale on deck this is a look ahead situation for them. The Bears need to sweep their home games this weekend in order to make the conference tournament next month.
|02-21-19||Louisiana-Monroe v. Texas State -4.5||63-60||Loss||-108||9 h 4 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #622 Texas State over ULM (8p.m., Thursday, February 21) The Bobcats sit atop the standing in the Sun Belt Conference and will enter this game having won 4 straight conference games. ULM has lost 4 of their last 6 games and they are in the middle of a 3-game road trip. The favorite is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
|02-20-19||Nevada v. San Diego State +8||57-65||Win||100||12 h 36 m||Show|
6 Unit Play. Take #842 San Diego State over Nevada (11p.m., Wednesday, February 20 CBSSN) This is likely the toughest game Nevada will face this season and we will grab the points with the home underdog. Nevada has never won in San Diego State since joining the MWC and I just do not see them blowing out the home team tonight. SDSU is 12-2 at home and have an NBA prospect in Jalen McDaniels something the Wolf Pack do not have. The home team is 9-1 ATS in the last 10 games between Nevada and San Diego State. The Aztecs are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 MWC games.

|02-19-19||Baylor v. Iowa State -9.5||73-69||Loss||-107||10 h 48 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #632 Iowa State over Baylor (9p.m., Tuesday, February 19 ESPN2) The Bears are banged up and will enter this game having lost 3 of their last 4 games included two blowouts during that losing streak. I think Iowa State is the best team in the league and they will enter this game having won 5 of their last 6 games. They have revenge on their minds after a 3 point loss to Baylor earlier in the season and will win this game by double digits. The home team is 18-6 ATS in the last 24 meetings between the Bears and Cyclones.
|02-19-19||Nebraska v. Penn State -3||71-95||Win||100||8 h 49 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #606 Penn State over Nebraska (7p.m., Tuesday, February 19 FS1) No bet against Nebraska is a bad bet especially with a low number on the road. Penn State is just 2-12 on the season but they have been competitive in most games and beat Michigan in their last home game. Being favored is a strong indication that we are on the right side for this game. Nebraska is 1-8 ATS in their last 9 Big 10 games. Penn State is 3-0 ATS (1 push) in their last 4 games. The favorite is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings between these two teams.
|02-19-19||Dayton v. Davidson -3.5||74-73||Loss||-107||7 h 50 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #602 Davidson over Dayton (6p.m., Tuesday, February 19 CBSSN) The Flyers have been on the slide of late losing two of their last three games and now must go on the road to face the best team in the league. The Wildcats have won 7 of their last 8 games and should be able to win this game by 7-9 points. Dayton is 5-13 ATS in their last 18 road games. Davidson is 21-9 ATS (1 push) in their last 21 Atlantic 10 games.
|02-17-19||Villanova v. St. John's +3.5||65-71||Win||100||6 h 10 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #828 St Johns over Villanova (5p.m., Sunday, February 17 FS1) The Red Storm tend to play to the level of their competition, and they will be up for this game. Villanova has overachieved during conference play and they do not warrant being this big of a favorite on the road. St Johns have a home heavy schedule to close out the regular season and they need to take advantage of that starting today. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
|02-16-19||Tennessee v. Kentucky -3||Top||69-86||Win||100||27 h 9 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #732 Kentucky over Tennessee (8p.m., Saturday, February 16 ESPN) This will be the toughest environment Tennessee plays in all year long and I just feel Kentucky needs this game more. The Wildcats are coming off a controversial loss last time out against LSU and they will be hungry to win this game. The Volunteers are going to win the SEC but I am not sold that they are the best team in the country. Kentucky is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games. They have more talent than does Tennessee and I do not believe the visitor can make enough shots from the arc to win this road game. Kentucky pulls away late to win by 6-8 points.
|02-16-19||Utah State v. Air Force +10||76-62||Loss||-103||5 h 44 m||Show|
5 Unit Play. Take #672 Air Force over Utah State (4p.m., Saturday, February 16) Utah State would have tow in out to be considered for an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament and with Nevada left on the schedule that seems unlikely. The Falcons have stayed under the radar but they are close to .500 in the MWC and we will grab the points in this game today in Colorado Springs. Utah State is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games. Air Froce is 14-5 ATS in their last 19 home games against teams with a winning record. The home team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
|02-16-19||Drexel +1.5 v. Towson||77-92||Loss||-110||3 h 45 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #627 Drexel over Towson (2p.m., Saturday, February 16) We will take a shot with the Dragons on Saturday thinking the Tigers will not have much left in the tank after a double overtime game last time out. Towson is 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games played on Saturday. Drexel is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games.
|02-15-19||St. Joe's v. Davidson -9.5||72-80||Loss||-112||8 h 3 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #854 Davidson over St Joes (7p.m., Friday, February 15 ESPN 2) The Hawks cannot wait for this season to end coming off a 25-point loss at home to an average St Bonaventure team. When St Joes losses it tends to come in blowout fashion and that will be the case tonight in North Carolina. The Wildcats have won 6 of their last 7 games and they currently sit atop the standing in the Atlantic 10. St Joes is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games. Davisson is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. The home team is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
|02-14-19||Delaware v. Towson -2||78-71||Loss||-105||8 h 60 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #614 Towson over Delaware (7p.m., Thursday, February 14) These are two middle of the pack teams in the CAA and look for the Tigers to complete the season sweep of the Blue Hens. Towson already beat Delaware on the road and should be able to win this game by 6-8 points at home. The Tigers have won 4 of their last 6 CAA games. Delaware is 0-5 ATS (1 push) in their last 6 games overall. Towson is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games. The Tigers are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 home games against Delaware.
|02-13-19||Minnesota v. Nebraska -3.5||61-62||Loss||-115||10 h 34 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #830 Nebraska over Minnesota (9p.m., Wednesday, February 13 BTN) I think it is about time for Nebraska to cover a spread. We have been fading them all month long, but Minnesota is the type of team that cannot take advantage of Nebraska’s flaws. Minnesota was a get-well game for Michigan State over the weekend and I expect the same thing to occur for Nebraska tonight. The home team is 10-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings between Minnesota and Nebraska.

|02-13-19||Georgia Tech +13 v. Virginia Tech||68-76||Win||100||9 h 33 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #811 Georgia Tech over Virginia Tech (8p.m., Wednesday, February 13 ACCN) This play is fading Virginia Tech, as injuries have taken their toll on this team and they are not scoring enough points to cover these big spreads. Georgia Tech is awful, but they have been competitive in some of their conference games this season. The Hokies are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Yellow Jackets are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between the Tech’s.
|02-13-19||SMU v. Temple -4.5||74-82||Win||100||8 h 31 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #790 Temple over SMU (7p.m., Wednesday, February 13 ESPN3) The Owls will look to get back on track in Philadelphia after getting blown out last time out in Tulsa. The Owls are a much better team at home and gave Houston their only loss of the season. The favorite is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. Temple is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss in their previous game.
|02-12-19||Michigan State -1 v. Wisconsin||Top||67-59||Win||100||8 h 20 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #621 Michigan State over Wisconsin (7p.m., Tuesday, February 12 ESPN 2) Michigan State has the bodies to offset Ethan Happ in the post and I am just not sure if Wisconsin can make enough perimeter shots to win this game. Wisconsin has already lost two home games this season during conference play and they have all but lost their chance to win the conference after losing over the weekend at Michigan. The line on this game is very telling, as Wisconsin opened has a 2.5 favorite only to have the Spartans favored at release time. The Spartans bounced back in a big way against Minnesota over the weekend. Michigan State is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 conference games. Wisconsin is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games played on Tuesday.
|02-11-19||Kansas +3 v. TCU||82-77||Win||100||10 h 2 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #859 Kansas over TCU (9p.m., Monday, February 11 ESPN) A am not ready to write-off Kansas of not winning the Big 12 this season just yet. If they lose tonight, they will not win the conference, but I have a feeling they will pull this game out. TCU is coming off an unthinkable win over the weekend at Iowa State, but they have not performed well against the top teams in the league. Kansas already beat TCU by 9 points earlier this season. The Jayhawks have covered the spread in 3 of the last 5 meetings with the Horned Frogs (1 push).
|02-10-19||Cincinnati v. Houston -4.5||58-65||Win||100||1 h 26 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #830 Houston -4 over Cincinnati (4p.m., Sunday, February 10 ESPN) The Cougars just win games and we will take them today with this low number against the Bearcats. The home team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. Cincinnati is 21-43 ATS in their last 4 games played on Sunday. Houston is 20-7 ATS (1 push) in their last 28 games played against teams with a winning record.
|02-09-19||Nebraska v. Purdue -10||Top||62-81||Win||100||26 h 28 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #750 Purdue over Nebraska (8:30p.m., Saturday, February 9 BTN) We have gone against Nebraska the last two games and see no reason for change course on Saturday night in West Lafayette. This Cornhusker team is shot and will enter this game have lost 6 straight games by over 9 points per game. This team cannot score points and the odds makers still have not caught on to how bad they are playing. Isaac Copeland was a lost they cannot overcome, and they have a lame duck coach with a veteran team that is just playing out the string. Nebraska is 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss in their previous game. Purdue has covered the spread in 6 of their last 7 games. Until proven otherwise we are going to keep fading Nebraska.
