|11-06-18||BYU +14 v. Nevada||Top||70-86||Loss||-110||29 h 37 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #749 BYU over Nevada (11p.m., Tuesday, November 6 CBSSN) Nevada is ranked in the top 10 and that is deservedly so. But they have not looked sharp in the exhibition season getting blown out by Washington at home and struggling for 33 minutes against San Francisco State. They have not been shooting the ball well and struggling on defense. BYU can match their experience and this team is always pesky and used to playing in tough road environments. The Cougars are predicted to finish ahead of Saint Mary’s in the WCC Standing (2nd overall) just behind mid-major power Gonzaga. BYU is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against MWC foes. Look for a Wolf Pack victory by 7-10 points giving us the cover with the underdog.
|11-06-18||Rider +7.5 v. UCF||70-84||Loss||-110||8 h 42 m||Show|
3 Unit Play. Take #757 Rider over Central Florida (5:30p.m, Tuesday, November 6 ESPN 3) Rider will be the team to beat this year in the MAAC and I do not see them getting blown out tonight in Orlando. The Broncs return all five starters from last year and were 22-10.
|04-02-18||Michigan v. Villanova -6.5||Top||62-79||Win||100||28 h 2 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #602 Villanova over Michigan (9:20p.m., Monday April 2 TBS) Villanova has just been head and shoulders above everyone else in this tournament. They only game they did not play well offensively was their regional final against Texas Tech. They still controlled that game throughout and covered the spread with ease. Michigan has not been shooting it well of late but they have been getting by with a super easy draw. That will not be the case on Monday as they face the best team in the country. Throw in the fact that Michigan has not performed well in the national championship game and expect Villanova to win by 10-12 points. The Wildcats are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games against Big 10 teams.
|03-31-18||Loyola-Chicago v. Michigan OVER 129||Top||57-69||Loss||-111||76 h 41 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #812 Over in Loyola vs Michigan (6:05p.m., Saturday March 31 TBS) Both teams have been solid on the defensive end of the floor, but they run very efficient offenses and I believe both will reach the mid to high sixties in scoring. Most of each team’s trends favor the under and thus this total has been posted about 5 points lower than where it should be. It is already up from the original line and there should be some fouling at the end of this game to propel the total score up even high. Michigan has gone over the posted total in 47 of their last 71 games (1 push).
|03-27-18||Mississippi State v. Penn State -2.5||Top||60-75||Win||100||28 h 12 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #780 Penn State over Mississippi State (9:30p.m., Tuesday March 27 ESPN) NIT GAME OF THE YEAR Penn State and their fans really care about the NIT and I expect them to advance to the finals of this tournament on Thursday night in New York City. The Lions have won two straight road games and both were not as close as the final score would indicate. They should have a big crowd for this game and expect them to pull away against Mississippi late and win by 7-9 points. The Bulldogs played their best game of the season last time out and as we have seen in the NCAA Tournament it is very hard to repeat those performances this next day. Penn State is 15-5 ATS (1 push) in their last 21 neutral site games. Mississippi State is 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games following a victory of more than 20 points in their previous game.
|03-25-18||Duke v. Kansas +3||Top||81-85||Win||100||21 h 19 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #722 Kansas over Duke (5:05p.m., Sunday March 25 CBS) Kansas has not performed well in this game in recent years to go along with a terrible Elite 8 record by Bill Self. But this is a much different situation, as they are not a heavy favorite like in past years. Nobody will blame Kansas for losing this game against Duke and that lack of pressure will help them a great deal to play free and worrysome. Duke is still a young team and they have not shown the consistency of being a great team very often this year. Kansas has experience and they also have Azubuike at center to negate some of Duke’s interior presence. The Jayhawks are a great three-point shooting team and if can make shots from behind the arc they will win this game. Everyone is in love with Duke, but I feel this is a very tough spot for them having to play Kansas in Omaha, NE. Duke is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against Kansas. The Jayhawks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against ACC teams. Do not be fooled by the final score of Kansas games in the NCAA Tournament, as they have controlled all three games only to let up a little at the end in the last two. There game against Clemson was not close. This one will be close by Kansas will win it by 3-5 points.
|03-24-18||Loyola-Chicago +2 v. Kansas State||Top||78-62||Win||100||17 h 9 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #513 Loyola Chicago over Kansas State (6:05p.m., Saturday March 24 TBS) The Wildcats are just not being embarked like the Ramblers. Most of the K-State fan base hates their coach and they were just 10-8 in conference play. Dean Wade could do damage in this game, but he barely played on Thursday and will not be close to 100% for this game. Loyola has been embraced by the entire country and Sister Jean and her magic is for real. This team plays a lower pace and takes high percentage shots and destroyed Nevada for the first 15 minutes of the second half. Loyola is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against Big 12 teams. Kansas State is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 nonconference game.
|03-23-18||Texas Tech +1.5 v. Purdue||Top||78-65||Win||100||100 h 11 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #873 Texas Tech over Purdue (9:55p.m., Friday March 23 TBS) Purdue has able to survive without Isaac Haas against Butler but I do not believe they will be able to do that for a second game. Texas Tech was red hot during the nonconference portion of the season before struggling with injuries down the stretch in Big 12 play. They are healthier now and I believe they will advance to the Elite 8. Purdue has not had any success in this round lately usually getting blown out in the Sweet 16. Texas Tech is 7-2 ATS (1 push) in their last 10 games against Big 10 teams. Purdue is 3-12 ATS (1 push) in their last 16 games overall.
|03-23-18||Clemson v. Kansas -4.5||76-80||Loss||-109||53 h 8 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #878 Kansas over Clemson (7:05p.m., Friday March 23 CBS) Nobody seems to benefit more from neutral site tournament locations than does Kansas. For some reason Omaha is hosting the Midwest Region and the Jayhawk faithful will flock to this site. Clemson is in unfamiliar territory having not advanced this far in quite some time. They played a perfect game against Auburn last time out, but I question if they can do that again on Friday. Sooner or later the loss of Donte Grantham will catch up with them. Clemson is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against Big 12 teams. Kansas is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against ACC teams. Everyone wants Duke vs Kanas in the Elite 8 and I expect the public to get what they want, as the Jayhawks roll in this game.
|03-22-18||Loyola-Chicago +110 v. Nevada||69-68||Win||110||29 h 10 m||Show|
6 Unit Play. Take #815 Loyola Chicago over Nevada (7:05p.m., Thursday March 22 CBS) Both of these teams are in unfamiliar territory. The Ramblers will still be able to play the underdog card, as they are the lower seed and a slight underdog in this game. Nevada is now expected to win this game and that is a pressure that will be hard to overcome given that this is a Sweet 16 game. Sooner or later getting down by double digits will catch-up with Nevada, especially since they only play 6 guys. Loyola will not tense up like Cincinnati or Texas did if they get up double digits. Nevada is 5-11 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 18 games following a victory in their previous game. Loyola is 21-8 ATS (1 push) in their last 30 games.
|03-21-18||Utah v. St. Mary's UNDER 140.5||67-58||Win||100||11 h 49 m||Show|
5 Unit Play. Take #768 Under in Utah @ St Mary’s (10p.m., Wednesday March 21 ESPN 2) The Gaels are tough to score points on especially when they are playing at home. St Mary’s has gone under the posted total in 14 of their last 17 home games. Utah has gone under the posted total in 4 of their last 5 games. Both teams do not foul a lot and thus I expect this game to be played in the sixties allowing us to collect with the under.
|03-20-18||Penn State v. Marquette -2.5||85-80||Loss||-108||8 h 59 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #666 Marquette over Penn State (7p.m., Tuesday March 20 ESPN) A trip to New York City is on the line tonight as the Lions and Eagles to battle in Milwaukee, WI. Marquette is a much better team at home and the line is trending towards them in a big way this morning. The Golden Eagles are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games against teams with a winning record. Penn State is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games played on Tuesday.
|03-19-18||LSU v. Utah -4||71-95||Win||100||10 h 8 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #620 Utah over LSU (9p.m., Monday March 19 ESPN U) The Utes are always a tough out when playing at home. They are now engaged after winning their opening round NIT game and should be able to take out LSU tonight at the Huntsmen Center. LSU is 0-6 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 8 road games. Utah is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against SEC teams.
|03-19-18||Stanford +7.5 v. Oklahoma State||65-71||Win||100||22 h 21 m||Show|
2-Unit Play. Take #617 Stanford over Oklahoma State (7 p.m. ESPN U)
Stanford plays really hard. This team really maxes out with effort and I think that they have a chance to win this game. Oklahoma State is in the same boat as Louisville, in that they were NCAA Tournament snubs. They managed to run Florida-Gulf Coast. But now they are playing a team with equal talent that I feel will be more motivated. I've seen in the past that teams that got snubbed from the tournament may have enough adrenaline to win one game. But the longer this tournament goes on the more their resentment for not making the NCAAs comes out, and it usually leads to an upset.
|03-18-18||Florida State v. Xavier -5.5||75-70||Loss||-104||9 h 19 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #720 Xavier over Florida State (8:40p.m., Sunday March 18 TNT) The Seminoles are just to consistent enough to trust two games in a row. We used them against Missouri on Friday and cruised to a victory but now the tables have turned and they are playing a much better team in Xavier. Florida State is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. Xavier is 24-6 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 32 NCAA games.
|03-18-18||Clemson v. Auburn -1||84-53||Loss||-114||8 h 48 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #724 Auburn over Clemson (7:10p.m., Sunday March 18 TBS) Auburn has not been playing well of late and thus this line is not reflective of the season they have had. Clemson is a good match-up for them and expect Auburn to control the second half and win this game convincingly. Clemson is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games played on Sunday. The people are betting Clemson yet the spread is moving towards Auburn, which is usually a good sign the wise guys are coming in on the Tigers from the state of Alabama.
Best of Luck – Doc’s Sports
|03-18-18||Nevada +8 v. Cincinnati||Top||75-73||Win||100||21 h 24 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #717 Nevada over Cincinnati (6:10p.m., Sunday March 18 TNT) Just do not like Cincinnati as this big of a favorite against an experienced an athletic team. Nevada is riding high now after their comeback victory against Texas and sooner or later they will get hot in this game from the three-point line. Cincinnati likes to play from in front and if Nevada can withstand the early punch they should be able to take this game down to the wire. Nevada is 33-14 ATS (4 pushes) in their last 51 games against teams with a winning record. Cincinnati is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games.
|03-17-18||Houston v. Michigan -3||63-64||Loss||-110||26 h 4 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #530 Michigan over Houston (9:40p.m., Saturday March 17 TBS) Houston was in a battle last time out with SDSU and I do not feel they will be able to keep up with Michigan. The Wolverines are a great tournament team since they do not foul and play outstanding defense. Michigan will play much better today since they already have a game under their belt. Many people believe Michigan can make the Final Four and they will move onto the Sweet 16 by 8-10 points.
|03-17-18||Ohio State v. Gonzaga -3||84-90||Win||100||24 h 8 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #536 Gonzaga over Ohio State (7:45p.m., Saturday March 17 CBS) We will continue to fade Ohio State as I just do not believe they are that good. Gonzaga had a big lead before letting their opponent back into the game on Thursday. They will not make that mistake again.
|03-17-18||Seton Hall v. Kansas -4.5||79-83||Loss||-106||24 h 37 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #528 Kansas over Seton Hall (7:10p.m., Saturday March 17 TBS) Kansas has a big edge playing this game in Wichita, KS. Seton Hall is still banged up and they just seem to never handle prosperity well.
|03-16-18||Florida State -1 v. Missouri||67-54||Win||100||76 h 34 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #885 Florida State over Missouri (9:50p.m., Friday March 16 TBS) Missouri is in flux now with the return of Michael Porter Jr and the absence of Jordan Barnett. Porter did not play well in his first game back and I do not believe we will see much better in this game. Florida State has their own issues of laying an egg in the ACC Tournament but they match-up well with Missouri. The Seminoles are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against SEC teams. Missouri is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 NCAA Tournament games.
|03-16-18||New Mexico State v. Clemson -4.5||68-79||Win||100||75 h 7 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #892 Clemson over New Mexico State (9:55p.m., Friday March 16 TruTV) Clemson has not been the same without Donte Grantham but they should have enough to beat a team from the WAC. Clemson had a very good year especially early in the season and for the most part they beat the teams that they should beat. New Mexico State has not done much with their NCAA Tournament appearances going 1-4 ATS in their last five NCAA games. Clemson is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral sites games.
|03-16-18||Texas v. Nevada -1||Top||83-87||Win||100||69 h 25 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #880 Nevada over Texas (4:30p.m., Friday March 16 TBS) NCAA TOURNAMENT GAME OF THE YEAR Just do not believe that Texas is set up to make a run in the NCAA Tournament. They have great size, but they do not shoot it well at all from the three-point line. Nevada has a very experienced team with great guards. They laid an egg in the semi-finals of the MWC Tournament, but they have not had much success against San Diego State. They are thin with players, so the extra rest likely did them good for this game. Nevada has been ranked for most of the season and getting away from MWC teams should do them good for this game. Texas will have a major edge in size, but I do not believe that they will be able to exploit that enough for 40 minutes to win this game. Texas is 0-8 ATS in their last 8 NCAA Tournament games. Texas is also 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against MWC teams. Nevada is 17-3 ATS (1 push) in their last 21 games following a loss in their previous game.
|03-16-18||Marshall +12 v. Wichita State||81-75||Win||100||66 h 23 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #889 Marshall over Wichita State (1:30p.m., Friday March 16 TNT) Marshall is a very streaky team but they do one thing well: shoot free throws. The Thundering Herd might get down big in this game but sooner or later they will get hot from the three-point line and make a run. Wichita State just does not have the top talent that they have had in years past and thus this is a lot of points for them to be laying. Marshall is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games. Wichita State is 7-20 ATS (1 push) in their last 28 neutral site games.
|03-15-18||Montana v. Michigan OVER 135||47-61||Loss||-105||11 h 5 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #734 Over in Montana vs Michigan (9:50p.m., Thursday March 15 TBS) This spread sets up for some fouling at the end with Montana likely trying to play catch-up late in the second half. Michigan was called for a lot of fouls during the Big 10 Tournament something they seldom do. Montana has gone over the posted total in 5 of their last 7 games. Michigan has gone over the posted total in 5 of their last 7 games (2 pushes).
|03-15-18||Alabama v. Virginia Tech -2||86-83||Loss||-102||50 h 26 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #722 Virginia Tech over Alabama (9:20p.m., Thursday March 15 TNT) Alabama has have the best prospect on the floor but Virginia Tech has the better team. The Crimson Tide got two wins in the SEC Tournament to make the NCAA Tournament but neither one of them impressed me. Texas A&M had them beat and Auburn is a sinking ship now. Virginia Tech has a bad taste in their month after losing a 20+ lead to Notre Dame last time out. If they get ahead of Alabama I do not see a comeback as the Tide do not have the shooters that the Irish do. Virginia Tech is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 nonconference games.
|03-15-18||San Diego State +4 v. Houston||Top||65-67||Win||100||49 h 38 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #731 San Diego State over Houston (7:20p.m., Thursday March 15 TBS) I truly believe that the wrong team is favored in this game. San Diego State has been outstanding of late having won 9 straight games. They were never in danger of losing anyone of those 9 games in the final minute. Houston had Cincinnati on the ropes Sunday before a complete scoring collapse in the second half. I do not see them recovering in time for this game. Houston is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 nonconference games. The Aztecs have been in win or go home for their last 4 games and they keep it going on Thursday. The money line is very inviting proposition for this game, but we will just stick with the point spread.
|03-15-18||South Dakota State +8 v. Ohio State||73-81||Push||0||45 h 56 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #747 South Dakota State over Ohio State (4p.m., Thursday March 15 TNT) Just do not believe Ohio State is that good. They overachieved, and their coach deserves most of that credit, but they just are not one of the top teams in the country. South Dakota State is used to being in the NCAA Tournament and this is one of their better squads having won the regular season title in addition of the conference tournament. Ohio State did not play as well down the stretch having won just 2 of their last 5 games. The Buckeyes are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 NCAA Tournament games. The Jackrabbits are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games. 67% of the early money is coming in on the underdog and we concur with that 100%.
|03-15-18||Oklahoma v. Rhode Island UNDER 158.5||78-83||Loss||-110||41 h 14 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #724 Under in Oklahoma vs Rhode Island (12:15p.m., Thursday March 15 CBS) Oklahoma has been an over team of late and Rhode Island has been an under team. The Rams have gone under the posted total in 5 of their last 6 games. Whatever Oklahoma has been doing of late is not working so expect them to try something else in this game (like play defense). Rhode Island should be able to control the tempo of this game and keep the scoring in the low seventies.
|03-14-18||Boise State v. Washington +1||77-74||Loss||-102||11 h 46 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #625 Washington over Boise State (10p.m., Wednesday March 14 ESPN 3) Washington gets to host this game despite being the higher seed. Boise State has NCAA Tournament talent, but they underachieved during MWC play and now find themselves disappointed since they are in the NIT. The Broncos are 7-18 ATS (1 push) in their last 26 games against teams with a winning record.
|03-14-18||Arizona State -1.5 v. Syracuse||56-60||Loss||-110||10 h 55 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #612 Syracuse over Arizona State (9:10p.m., Wednesday March 14 TruTV) We went against UCLA last night and will go against Arizona State tonight. The Sun Devils have not been the same team since PAC-12 Conference play started. The Orange won two of their last three games and their zone is hard to figure out if teams have not seen much of it before. Syracuse is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 NCAA tournament games. Arizona State is 10-26 ATS in their last 36 neutral site games.
|03-14-18||Jacksonville State v. Canisius -4.5||80-78||Loss||-105||8 h 46 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #646 Canisius over Jacksonville State (7p.m., Wednesday March 14) The Golden Griffins are a tough out at home, a place where they went 11-2 this season. Canisius went 15-3 during MAAC play and they should make some noise in this CBI tournament. Canisius is 12-3 ATS (1 push) in their last 16 home games.
|03-13-18||Southeastern Louisiana +15 v. St. Mary's||45-89||Loss||-108||11 h 53 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #559 SE Louisiana over Saint Mary’s (10p.m., Tuesday March 13 ESPN U)
All three of these selections fall into the same category. We are fading the No. 1 seed that is pissed they did not make it into the NCAA Tournament field. Some of these coaches are upset and some tried to put on a good face about being snubbed. But the players feel it as well and expect them just to go through the motions. I would not be surprised if one of these No. 1 seeds lost straight up.
|03-13-18||St Bonaventure +3.5 v. UCLA||65-58||Win||100||10 h 10 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #545 St Bona over UCLA (9:10p.m., Tuesday March 13 Tru TV) We will gladly take the points in this evenly matched game. The Bonnies had an outstanding season and enter this game with just one loss in their last in their last 14 games. UCLA just went through the motions for most of this season and were not that consistent outside of Aaron Holiday. They had a bunch of road losses and St Bona will win this game straight-up. UCLA is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 nonconference games. St Bona is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against teams with a winning record.
|03-13-18||Hampton +21 v. Notre Dame||63-84||Push||0||10 h 53 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #557 Hampton over Notre Dame (9p.m., Tuesday March 13 ESPN)
|03-13-18||Vermont v. Middle Tennessee -6||64-91||Win||100||9 h 52 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #552 Middle Tennessee State over Vermont (8p.m., Tuesday March 13 ESPN U) The Blue Raiders had a great success and they will take out their frustrations of not making the NCAA Tournament on the Catamounts. Conference USA is a tougher league then the American East and often mid-majors are motivated to make it to New York City for the final four. Vermont is 7-15 ATS in their last 22 nonconference games. MTSU is 20-8 ATS in their last 28 home games.

|03-13-18||Wagner +14 v. Baylor||59-80||Loss||-110||8 h 54 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #549 Wagner over Baylor (7p.m., Tuesday March 13 ESPN 2)
|03-11-18||Houston v. Cincinnati OVER 128||55-56||Loss||-105||4 h 10 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #828 Over in Houston vs Cincinnati (3:30p.m., Sunday March 11 CBS) The Cougars have been scoring some points of late going over the posted total in 5 of their last 6 games. The Bearcats have gone over the posted total in 4 of their last 5 games played on Sunday. These games tend to be played out to the end so expect some fouling to occur and propel the scoring into the 130s.
Best of Luck – Doc’s Sports
|03-11-18||Kentucky +2 v. Tennessee||77-72||Win||100||2 h 39 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #823 Kentucky over Tennessee (1p.m., Sunday March 11 ESPN) We have used the Wildcats the last two days and cruised to easy victories. Expect more of the same on Sunday as the SEC Championship is on the line. Tennessee has looked equally impressive, but they do not have a long history of winning SEC Tournament Championships. Kentucky is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games.
|03-11-18||Davidson v. Rhode Island -2||58-57||Loss||-106||2 h 38 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #822 Rhode Island over Davidson (1p.m., Sunday March 11 CBS) The Rams have been the best team in the league all season long and expect them to validate that with a tournament championship on Sunday. Davidson is 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games played on Sunday. Rhode Island is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 neutral site games. Just have a feeling Rhode Island will play their best game of the tournament Sunday.
|03-10-18||USC v. Arizona -3||61-75||Win||100||11 h 52 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #544 Arizona over USC (10p.m., Saturday March 10 FS1) I said yesterday that Oregon is not a good match-up for USC and I feel the same way tonight. USC does not match-up well with Arizona and expect them use their use to win this game. USC will miss Bennie Boatwright for this game. The favorite is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings between USC and Arizona. The Wildcats are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games against the Trojans.
|03-10-18||Grand Canyon v. New Mexico State -4||58-72||Win||100||11 h 38 m||Show|

|03-10-18||Toledo v. Buffalo -6.5||66-76||Win||100||8 h 36 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #538 Buffalo over Toledo (7p.m., Saturday March 10 ESPN 2) The Bulls are far and away the best team in the MAC and expect them to take care of business tonight in Cleveland. Buffalo won the only meetings against Toledo by double digits. The Rockets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against teams with a winning record.
|03-10-18||West Virginia v. Kansas||Top||70-81||Loss||-110||7 h 29 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #531 West Virginia over Kansas (6p.m., Saturday March 10 ESPN) CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT GAME OF THE YEAR. Revenge will be served on the court tonight in Kansas City. The Jayhawks have had a cakewalk to the finals, but this is the game that they will miss having Udoka Azubuike. West Virginia should be 2-0 against Kansas this year but lost both games at the end despite controlling them. Throw in the fact that they got jobbed in the last meeting with a 35-2 free throw disparity and the Mountaineers have had this game circled since 2/17. This is game West Virginia wants and they will win it by 8-10 points. This is not a typical Kansas team this season, as they have lost a ton of home games and have very little size in the paint. West Virginia is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against teams with a winning record.

|03-10-18||Alabama v. Kentucky -4.5||63-86||Win||100||2 h 35 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #524 Kentucky over Alabama (1p.m., Saturday March 10 ESPN) Kentucky flexed their muscles yesterday against Georgia and I see a similar game today in St Louis. Alabama likely has done enough to reach the NCAA Tournament, and this is not a must win game for them. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings between Alabama and Kentucky. Kentucky is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
|03-09-18||Cal-Irvine v. UC-Santa Barbara||61-58||Loss||-115||12 h 28 m||Show|

|03-09-18||Oregon v. USC -2.5||54-74||Win||100||12 h 19 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #880 USC -2.5 over Oregon (11:30p.m., Friday March 9 FS1) This is just not a good match-up for the Ducks. USC beat them twice this season in close games. This should be another close game but expect USC to pull away late and win this game by 5-7 points. The Trojans played well down the stretch winning 5 of their last 6 games. Oregon is 0-4 ATS (1 push) in their last 5 neutral site games. USC is 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games against teams with a winning record.
|03-09-18||North Carolina v. Duke -4||74-69||Loss||-107||10 h 10 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #686 Duke -4 over North Carolina (9:30p.m., Friday March 9 ESPN) The victory Carolina got over Duke they made three pointers. They have not been doing that of late and thus they will struggle against the zone of Duke. The Blue Devils pounded a good Notre Dame team yesterday and I see them pulling away late to win this game by double digits. The favorite is 4-1 ATS (1 push) in the last 6 meetings between North Carolina and Duke.
|03-09-18||San Diego State v. Nevada UNDER 152||90-73||Loss||-105||10 h 37 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #874 Under 152.5 in San Diego State vs Nevada (9p.m., Friday March 9 CBSSN) The under has collected in 5 of the last 7 meetings between San Diego State and Nevada (1 push). Nevada did not shoot well at all yesterday and now face a much better defensive team in San Diego State on Friday. San Diego State has gone under the posted total in 5 of their last 6 games (1 push).
|03-09-18||San Diego State +2.5 v. Nevada||90-73||Win||100||10 h 36 m||Show|

|03-09-18||Troy State v. Georgia State -4||51-73||Win||100||7 h 32 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #842 Georgia State -4 over Troy (6p.m., Friday March 9 ESPN 3) The Trojans are not good enough to beat the Panthers three times in one season. Georgia State finished 12-6 in league play, three full games better than Troy finished. The Trojans are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a victory in their previous game.
|03-09-18||Georgia v. Kentucky -4.5||49-62||Win||100||4 h 4 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. #848 Take Kentucky -4.5 over Georgia (3:30p.m., Friday March 9 ESPN) Georgia’s run will end today against Kentucky. The Wildcats have had a disappointing season but they still have talent and I do not see them going down in their first game of the SEC Tournament. Kentucky has covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 games. Georgia is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a victory in their previous game.
|03-08-18||Cal Poly v. UC-Santa Barbara OVER 141||53-75||Loss||-108||12 h 5 m||Show|

4 Unit Play. Take #764 Seattle -3.5 over Texas Rio Grande (11:30p.m., Thursday March 8 ESPN 3) The Redhawks are going for the season sweep of the Vaqueros. TRGV has not been playing well down the stretch covering the spread just 1 time in their last 6 games. Seattle is the higher seed and expect them to take care of business on Friday night and advance to the semi-finals on Friday.

|03-08-18||Butler v. Seton Hall +1||75-74||Push||0||10 h 10 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #700 Seton Hall +1 over Butler (9:30p.m., Thursday March 8 FS1) Seton Hall is always a tough out at the Garden and tonight should be no different. The Pirates have righted the ship down the stretch winning three of their last four games. They also won at Butler this year and they could make some noise in the conference tournament. The Pirates are 5-2 ATS (1 push) in their last 8 neutral site games.
|03-08-18||North Carolina -5.5 v. Miami-FL||82-65||Win||100||10 h 8 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #667 North Carolina -5.5 over Miami (9:30p.m., Thursday March 8 ESPN) The Tar Heels will have revenge on their minds after losing to Miami at the buzzer last week. Carolina flexed their muscles last night against Syracuse and expect them to win this game by 9-11 points. I do not believe Miami is as good as their record indicates and thus expect them to struggle against the elite teams in the league. Miami is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 neutral site games.
|03-08-18||Duquesne v. Richmond -2||Top||68-81||Win||100||23 h 28 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #682 Richmond over Duquesne (6p.m., Thursday March 8 NBCSN) No bet against Duquesne is a bad bet. The Duke finished the season losing 9 of their last 11 games. Richmond had a terrible nonconference portion of the season but did show some life in Atlantic 10 play to finish with a respectable 9-9 record. They had a long losing streak of their own but did stabilize things winning their last two games. This is a young Spider team and they have a brighter future ahead and expect them to win this game and advance to the quarterfinals. Richmond won the first meeting by 4 points in Pittsburgh. The favorite is 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings. Richmond is 17-4 ATS in their last 21 games against Duquesne.
|03-08-18||Duquesne v. Richmond OVER 143||68-81||Win||100||7 h 41 m||Show|

|03-08-18||Stanford v. UCLA -3.5||77-88||Win||100||6 h 22 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #728 UCLA -3.5 over Stanford (5:30p.m., Thursday March 8 PAC-12 Network) Stanford had an easy game to advance to the quarterfinals but that is as far as they will get. This game means more to UCLA since they still have a chance to make the NCAA Tournament. Stanford likely gets into the NIT but would have to win three more games to make the big dance. UCLA is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against teams with a winning record. UCLA is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games against Stanford.

4 Unit Play. Take #704 Kansas -4.5 over Oklahoma State (3p.m., Thursday March 8 ESPN 2) Kansas is without Udoka Azubuike but I just cannot see Oklahoma State beating them for a third time this season. This game is being played in Kansas City giving the Jayhawks a big edge in the home crowd. The Cowboys are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a victory in their previous game.
|03-08-18||UNLV v. Nevada -5||Top||74-79||Push||0||4 h 43 m||Show|
7 Unit Play. Take #718 Nevada -5.5 over UNLV (3p.m., Thursday March 8 CBSSN) TOP COLLEGE HOOPS PLAY OF THE DAY. Just do not see a way UNLV does not get run over. It will not be the quite as bad as the game last Wednesday but it will still be a double digit victory. Despite this game being played on their home floor, UNLV has had no success in this tournament in recent years and they were take to overtime by Air Force yesterday. Nevada has a bad taste in their mouth after losing to San Diego State last time out and they need to make a statement in this game to assure they receive to 6/7 seed in the NCAA Tournament last week. UNLV did beat them in Reno this season but Nevada was without their leading scorer in that game. UNLV is 12-37 ATS (3 pushes) in their last 52 conference games. The favorite has covered 4 of the last 5 games in this match-up.
|03-08-18||TCU v. Kansas State +2.5||64-66||Win||100||1 h 14 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #702 Kansas State +2.5 over TCU (12:30p.m., Thursday March 8 ESPN 2)
|03-07-18||Oklahoma v. Oklahoma State||Top||60-71||Loss||-110||27 h 53 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #625 Oklahoma over Oklahoma State (7p.m., Wednesday March 7 ESPN U) This may be a winner take all game with the team that emerges victorious making the NCAA Tournament and the loser in serious bubble trouble. It is hard to have any faith in Oklahoma, but this handicapper does. The Sooners won 2 of their last 3 and had good success against the Cowboys beating them by 20 and losing a hard fought 2-point game. They still have the best player on the floor and Lon Kruger is too good a coach not to have his team ready for this all-important game. Oklahoma is 11-3 ATS in their last 14 meetings against Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are also 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games following a victory in their previous game.
|03-07-18||Louisville v. Florida State -2||82-74||Loss||-115||1 h 18 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #576 Florida State -2 over Louisville (12p.m., Wednesday March 7 ESPN) Just do not believe Louisville has much left in the tank after an emotional season and emotional week. They had Virginia dead to right last week yet blew that game and likely their chances to make the NCAA Tournament. Throw in the fact that the committee does not want them in and expect them to come out flat in this game. One can never trust Florida State, but they have talent and should be able to beat Louisville for the second time in three tries this season. Louisville is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games.
|03-06-18||BYU v. Gonzaga OVER 142||54-74||Loss||-105||9 h 25 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #528 Over in BYU vs Gonzaga (9p.m., Tuesday March 6 ESPN) This is a must win game for BYU and expect them to play it out for an entire 40 minutes which means they will continue to foul down the stretch if they are behind. Gonzaga has gone over the posted total in their last 5 neutral site games. BYU has gone over the posted total in 7 of their last 8 games.

5 Unit Play. Take #526 Charleston over Northeastern (7p.m., Tuesday March 6 CBSSN) The Cougars have a huge edge in location as this game is being played in North Charleston. They have already beaten the Huskies twice this season and will make it three in a row come Tuesday night. Charleston is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings against Northeastern.
|03-05-18||San Francisco v. Gonzaga OVER 140||60-88||Win||100||27 h 35 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #732 Over in San Francisco vs Gonzaga (9p.m., Monday March 5 ESPN) Look for some point s to be scored in this game as these two teams have gone over the posted total in 7 of their last 9 games. San Francisco has also played over the posted total in 7 of their last 9 games against teams with a winning record. Gonzaga has gone over the posted total in 4 straight games played on neutral sites.

7 Unit Play. Take #838 Purdue over Michigan (4:30 p.m., Sunday March 4 CBS) Purdue will complete the season sweep of Michigan and win the Big 10 Conference Tournament Sunday night in New York City. Michigan has had to run a gauntlet just to reach the finals and playing an extra day and much better competition will catch up with them in this game. Purdue has had a cake walk to the finals and they are ready to come out strong early in this game. Purdue controls this game for 40 minutes and wins it by 6-8 points.
|03-03-18||UNLV v. Utah State -1||67-79||Win||100||10 h 50 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #618 Utah State over UNLV (9p.m., Saturday March 3 ESPN 3) The Rebels are a sinking ship now and after showing some signs early in the season they have fallen off a cliff of late. The Aggies have been bad as well but they are always a tough out at home and expect them to close out the regular season with a win. The Aggies already won in Las Vegas this season and the type of loss UNLV suffered on Wednesday will have a lasting effect into this game. UNLV is 5-21 ATS (4 pushes) in their last 30 road games.
|03-03-18||Colorado v. Utah -9||Top||54-64||Win||100||8 h 39 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #600 Utah over Colorado (7p.m., Saturday March 3 PAC12N) TOP COLLEGE HOOPS PLAY OF THE DAY. Utah still has life with regards to the NCAA Tournament but they need a double-digit victory today to close out the regular season. They Utes played their worst game of the season last time out and they have had a week to sit on that performance. The Buffaloes have not been playing well down the stretch losing three of their last four games and Utah has revenge on their minds. When Colorado loses they tend to lose big and expect that to be the case yet again on Saturday. Colorado is 18-38 ATS (1 push) in their last 57 road games. Utah is 38-13 ATS (2 pushes) in their last 53 road games against teams with a losing road record.
|03-03-18||Kansas -2.5 v. Oklahoma State||64-82||Loss||-115||5 h 53 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #565 Kansas over Oklahoma State (4p.m., Saturday March 3 ESPN) The Jayhawks are playing some of their best basketball of the season and will enter this game in Stillwater having won 5 straight games. They last 4 teams are much better than what they will face today, as they Cowboys will not be going to the NCAA Tournament. Kansas is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games. Oklahoma State is 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games following a win in their previous game.
|03-03-18||TCU v. Texas Tech OVER 141.5||75-79||Win||100||5 h 47 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #558 Over in TCU @ Texas Tech (4p.m., Saturday March 3 ESPN 2) The Over has collected in 5 of the last 7 meetings between TCU and Texas Tech. TCU has gone over the posted total in 11 of their last 12 games played on Saturday. Texas Tech has gone over the posted total in 4 of their last 5 games.
|03-02-18||Michigan v. Nebraska +5||77-58||Loss||-110||2 h 17 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #850 Nebraska over Michigan (2:30 p.m., Friday March 2 BTN) The line is just too high considering all the factors. Nebraska has much more to play for in this game as most feel they need to win it to ensure they reach the NCAA Tournament. They only quality win is against Michigan, winning by 20 points in the only meeting of the season. Michigan did not look good against Iowa yesterday and they also had to play five extra minutes just to advance to today's quarterfinal game. Nebraska is 15-2 ATS in their last 17 Big 10 games.

|03-02-18||Wisconsin +11 v. Michigan State||60-63||Win||100||18 h 39 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #847 Wisconsin over Michigan State (12p.m., Friday March 2 BTN) We will ride the Badgers for a second straight day as they won yesterday despite being an underdog. Wisconsin has been on a nice ATS run of late covering the spread in 5 straight games. They took Michigan State to the wire last Sunday and I see them being somewhat competitive in this game keeping the deficit around 6-8 points. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. Wisconsin has been taking the air out of the ball of late keeping the scoring low and thus it is much harder to come this big of a number.
|03-01-18||Wisconsin +128 v. Maryland||59-54||Win||128||2 h 47 m||Show|
6 Unit Play. Take #555 Wisconsin over Maryland (12p.m., Thursday March 1 BTN) Maryland did not record many impressive wins in Big 10 play this season. They just beat up on the bottom and I do not believe that they are good enough to beat Wisconsin twice in one season. Wisconsin has played much better down the stretch winning three of their last four games. Their only loss was against Michigan State, possibly the best team in the country. The Badgers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings against the Terrapins.
|02-28-18||Nevada -2.5 v. UNLV||101-75||Win||100||30 h 16 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #759 Nevada over UNLV (11p.m., Wednesday February 28 CBSSN) The Rebels are in freefall now having lost three straight games including two via a blowout. Since this is an in-state rival they will get up for this game, but I just do not believe they have the horses to beat Nevada twice in one season. Nevada did not have Caleb Martin in the first meeting and that was a huge loss as he is averaging over 19 points per game. Nevada has already locked up the top seed in the MWC and will be going to the NCAA Tournament, but they still have a lot to play for. If they win out they could move to a NO. 5 seed. UNLV has been a poor home team this season with 4 losses in MWC play. UNLV is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games. Nevada is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games at UNLV.
|02-27-18||Army -1 v. Loyola Maryland||79-82||Loss||-115||8 h 2 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #549 Army over Loyola Maryland (7p.m., Tuesday February 27) Both of these teams are on long losing streaks but look for Army to complete the season sweep of Loyola Maryland tonight. Army won the first meeting by double digits and they are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Greyhounds are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games.
|02-26-18||Duke v. Virginia Tech +6||63-64||Win||100||8 h 57 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #724 Virginia Tech over Duke (7p.m., Monday February 26 ESPN) Despite winning by 16 points over the weekend, Duke did not play well against Syracuse. They did not make a three-point basket until the middle of the second half and now they face a much better team on the road in a hostile environment. This is the third straight home game for the Hokies and they have a bad taste in their mouth after losing to Louisville last time out. I expect them to take this game down to the wire and we will collect with whoever comes out on top. The home team is 3-0 ATS in the last three match-ups.
|02-25-18||Penn State v. Nebraska -1||64-76||Win||100||6 h 4 m||Show|
5 Unit Play. Take #834 Nebraska over Penn State (2:15p.m., Sunday February 25 BTN) The Cornhuskers still are undervalued by the line makers despite the fact win in this game will give them 13 conference wins. They have revenge in this game as they lost a tough fought two-point game earlier this season in State College. Nebraska has won 7 of their last 8 games. Nebraska is 14-2 ATS in their last 16 Big 10 games. Penn State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against Nebraska.

|02-25-18||Michigan State v. Wisconsin +8||68-63||Win||100||2 h 47 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #816 Wisconsin over Michigan State (1p.m., Sunday February 25 CBS) Wisconsin has been playing better of late having won three straight games and they will close out the regular season today at the Kohl Center. Michigan State has a ton of issues now with players and coaches and expect them to just go through the motions and win this game by 4-6 points. If Wisconsin can stabilize the game early they should be able to take this game down to the wire. Wisconsin is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games against teams with a winning road record. Michigan State is 2-6 ATS (1 push) in their last 9 road games. Home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

Weber State has gone over the posted total in 10 of their last 14 games (1 push). Idaho has gone over the posted total in 20 of their last 28 conference games.

4 Unit Play. Take #668 Florida over Auburn (8:30p.m., Saturday February 24 SECN) I still do not believe Auburn is as good as their ranking suggests. The Gators have lost three straight games and this is one game that they need to ensure that they reach the NCAA Tournament in 2018. Auburn did not look good against South Carolina in their last road game and I expect Florida to win this game by 4-6 points.
|02-24-18||Arizona State -2 v. Oregon State||Top||75-79||Loss||-110||27 h 4 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #661 Arizona State over Oregon State (8p.m., Saturday February 24 ESPN U) Arizona State has been one of the most disappointing teams during conference play this season after running the table in the nonconference portion of the season. They have a knack for getting games they need to avoid a complete free fall in the standing. This is one of those games against an undermanned Oregon State team coming off an overtime loss to Arizona on Thursday. ASU will not take them lightly since they beat OSU by just two points earlier this season in Tempe. The Beavers have not played well of late losing 7 of their last 9 games. Arizona State is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games against teams with a losing record. Oregon State is 6-13 ATS in their last 19 home games. The favorite is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings between ASU and OSU.
|02-24-18||Denver v. Western Illinois||89-52||Loss||-110||8 h 21 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #702 Western Illinois over Denver (8p.m., Saturday February 24) It has not been a good season for the Leathernecks, but I expect them to go out on senior day with a victory on their home floor. Western Illinois beat North Dakota State last time out and they are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a victory in their previous game. Denver is 4-11 ATS in their last 15 road games.
|02-24-18||Syracuse v. Duke -13||44-60||Win||100||7 h 59 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #636 Duke over Syracuse (6:15p.m., Saturday February 24 ESPN) Syracuse is nowhere near as talented as Duke is this season. Syracuse may struggle to win a regular season game in their last three and they will lose this one by double digits. Duke has covered the spread in 4 straight games. Syracuse is 15-38 ATS in their last 55 games played on Saturday.
|02-24-18||Virginia v. Pittsburgh +19||66-37||Loss||-107||5 h 40 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #590 Pittsburgh over Virginia (4p.m., Saturday February 24 ESPN U) Pittsburgh is terrible and will likely go winless in the ACC this season. They are at home and this is just a ton of points to be giving for Virginia, a team that does not score a ton of points. The Panthers have stayed under this number in their last two losses and I expect them to make it three in a row.
|02-24-18||NC-Wilmington v. Drexel -3||83-82||Loss||-105||5 h 36 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #584 Drexel over Wilmington (4p.m., Saturday February 24) Drexel is riding high now after coming back from a 34-point deficit last time out to beat Delaware. Expect that momentum to carry into this game on senior day in Philadelphia. The favorite is 7-2 ATS (1 push) in the last 9 meetings between Wilmington and Drexel.
|02-22-18||Loyola Marymount v. Santa Clara -3.5||65-64||Loss||-112||11 h 59 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take Santa Clara over LMU (10p.m., Thursday February) No bet is a bad bet against LMU at this point of the season. The Broncos have already beaten the Lions by 16 points this season in Los Angeles and that is how I see this game going as well. Santa Clara has won 3 straight games including back-to-back road games. LMU is 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games played on Thursday.
|02-22-18||Eastern Washington v. Weber State -4.5||75-70||Loss||-106||10 h 60 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #658 Weber State over Eastern Washington (9p.m., Thursday February 22) The Wildcats are always one of the top teams in the Big Sky and this year is no different. They enter this game having won 9 straight games and need to win both home games this weekend with a trip to Montana on deck. Weber State has covered the spread in 8 of those last 9 wins. Eastern Washington is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a victory in their previous game.
|02-22-18||Wisconsin v. Northwestern -3.5||70-64||Loss||-106||8 h 57 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #571 Wisconsin over Northwestern (7p.m., Thursday February 22 ESPN 2) The Wildcats are in freefall at the moment having lost 4 straight games including a shell shocking loss to Michigan State on Saturday in which they blew a 27 point lead. That affected them against Maryland last time out and will happen again on Thursday. They may be without Bryant McIntosh again and that is a major void for them to fill. The road teams is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
|02-21-18||Fresno State v. UNLV -1.5||Top||77-64||Loss||-105||11 h 56 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #766 UNLV over Fresno State (10p.m., Wednesday February 21 ESPN 3) The Rebels are coming off their worst performance of the season but I expect them to bounce back in a big way Wednesday. The Bulldogs have won four straight but their last two games have come against the worst teams in the league (Colorado State & San Jose State). UNLV has talent evident by the fact that the are the only team to win at Nevada this season. The home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The line is moving our direction and that is with good reason. UNLV gets back on track in a big way tonight in Sin City.
|02-21-18||Clemson v. Virginia Tech -4||58-65||Win||100||8 h 57 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #728 Virginia Tech over Clemson (7p.m., Wednesday February 21 ACCN) Just believe Clemson is a sinking ship at the moment. They have lost two straight games and now and now face a Virginia Tech team that is hungry for a victory. The Hokies are coming off a dominating road victory against Georgia Tech and need to win all three of these home games on their docket. Clemson is 2-6 ATS (1 push) in their last 9 games against Virginia Tech. The Hokies are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games.
|02-20-18||Vanderbilt v. LSU -4.5||Top||78-88||Win||100||26 h 8 m||Show|
10 Unit Play. Take #536 LSU over Vanderbilt (9p.m., Tuesday February 20 SECN) I just do not believe in Vanderbilt this season especially when they are playing on the road. Vanderbilt has lost all 7 conference road games this season. The Tigers have a new coach this season and they close out the regular season with 4 games that are winnable and a chance to finish conference play .500. LSU has revenge after losing in Nashville by 6 points. LSU has covered the spread in 4 straight home games. Vanderbilt is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games. Lay the points in this game.
|02-18-18||Nebraska v. Illinois||66-72||Loss||-110||5 h 37 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #853 Nebraska over Illinois (3:30p.m., Sunday February 18 BTN) This is a very big public play and the line is trending towards Illinois despite that. That is somewhat worrisome, but they bottom line is Nebraska is 11-4 in conference play and Illinois is 2-12. Nebraska does not want any bad losses as they are a bubble team for the NCAA Tournament. It will not be easy but I believe Nebraska will win this game by 3-5 points.

|02-18-18||Duke -2 v. Clemson||66-57||Win||100||2 h 9 m||Show|
7 Unit Play. Take #843 Duke over Clemson (1p.m., Sunday February 18 ACCN) The Blue Devils are hitting the Tigers are just the right moment. They are coming off an overtime loss last Wednesday and they are down two starters for this game. Point guard Shelton Mitchell is in concussion protocol and losing your starting point guard who is averaging 33 minutes per game will be tough to overcome. Duke is without Marvin Bagley but the last two games that has not hurt them. In fact it seems to have gotten Grayson Allen on track, as he is averaging 24 points per game the last two games. Duke is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games played on Sunday. Clemson is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games played on Sunday.
|02-17-18||Oregon v. UCLA -3.5||78-86||Win||100||28 h 59 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #652 UCLA over Oregon (10:15p.m., Saturday February 17 ESPN) The Bruins are quietly moving up the standings in the PAC-12 and I believe that they will make the NCAA Tournament come March. Oregon is well coached, but they just do not have the talent to compete with the top teams in the league. They lost a heartbreaker to USC on Thursday and I do not expect them to be able to bounce back in 48 hours. UCLA has won 5 of their last 6 games and lost to Oregon by just 3 points in Eugene earlier this year. Oregon has lost 2 straight road games. UCLA is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games.
|02-17-18||Colorado v. Washington -4||59-82||Win||100||26 h 43 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. #622 Take Washington over Colorado (8p.m., Saturday February 17 P12N) The Huskies still have a chance to make the NCAA Tournament as they close with five winnable games to finish out the regular season. They have lost three straight games and that makes this a must win game. If Washington can beat Arizona and Arizona State in Seattle, they can beat Colorado. Washington already beat them in Boulder earlier this year. Colorado is 18-37 ATS (1 push) in their last 56 road games.
|02-17-18||West Virginia v. Kansas -4||69-77||Win||100||24 h 57 m||Show|
4 Unit Play. Take #584 Kansas over West Virginia (6p.m., Saturday February 17 ESPN) Just have not been sold on this West Virginia team all season long. We have went against them a lot and I just feel if they are not turning you over they really struggle to score. I have not given up on Kansas winning the Big 12 but to accomplish that they must win this game. Kansas is coming off one of their worst performances of the season last Saturday in Waco but that will not happen in Lawrence. The Jayhawks have already won in Morgantown this season and they will pull away late to win this game by 8-10 points. The home team is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings between West Virginia and Kansas.
