|12-19-16||Eastern Michigan +12 v. Syracuse||57-105||Loss||-110||16 h 14 m||Show|
Eastern Michigan saw its four game win streak snapped last time out at Vermont, 82-74. EMU had won six of seven before the loss. In addition, the club is 3-1 ATS in their four posted line games and 4-1 in their last five away games. Syracuse started the season 4-0, but has lost four of their last six games. The Orangemen are also just 1-4 ATS on the season. Eastern Michigan can put up points, as the club has over 90 three times this season and over 70 seven times. With Syracuse laying double digits here, I don't see the Orange being able to score enough against a decent EMU squad. Take the points with Eastern Michigan.

Connecticut brings a 3-4 S/U and 0-5 ATS mark into this game with Syracuse from Madison Square Garden. The Huskies have struggled, losing to Wagner by nine and Northeastern by three. The Huskies were ranked 16th in the preseason polls, but that quickly changed with two losses out of the gate. It won't get any easier tonight against ranked Syracuse. The Orange are 5-2 S/U and 1-2 ATS to start the season. Syracuse plays a tough zone defense that has held opponents to just 35.4% from the field this year and 25% from the 3-point arc. The Orangemen have a lot of depth on this club and should easily handle the struggling Huskies here tonight. Play Syracuse.

11/30 05:00 PM CB (557) CLEVELAND STATE VS (558) ARKANSAS STATE.
Take: (558) ARKANSAS STATE
Reason: Cleveland State is winless on the road where they are getting beat by an 88-71 average. The Vikings are 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record. The Arkansas State Red Wolves are 3-0 at home this season, playing well at both ends of the floor on a 5-1 spread run. Play Arkansas State.

Second Round of the Sanford Pentagon Showcase from Sioux Falls, SD. This matchup has the host club taking on East Tennessee State. The ETS Buccaneers are off to a 3-1 start on the season with quality wins over Detroit and Wisconsin Milwaukee. In the opening game of this tournament, ETS beat Wisc Milwaukee easily, 86-62. South Dakota State has is just 1-5, with four of those games on the road. Their only win came against Div II Wayne State. The Jackrabbits are shooting just 36% from the field thus far. ETSU leads the nation in field goal percentage, hitting at a .661 pace. Not only is ETSU expected to finish near the top of their division, but they are also ranked 22nd in the Mid-Major polls. This is a talented ETSU squad, which can shoot lights out. They have too much here for this undermanned Jackrabbit club. Play East Tennessee St
|11-26-16||Penn State +2.5 v. George Washington||74-68||Win||100||6 h 9 m||Show|
Penn State already into its 7th game of the young season, with a 3-3 S/U and 2-2 ATS mark. The Nittany Lions have beaten Duquesne and then gave Duke all it could handle. PSU lost to Duke, 78-68 as a 19-point dog. With just three games left before Big 10 play, this is a critical road test for the Lions. The Lions don't start a senior on this squad and in fact look to three freshman starts and two Juniors. Meanwhile. George Washington started the season 3-0 before losing back-to-back contests in the CBE Classic to Georgia and UAB. Not much expectation for this year's edition of the Colonials, with three starters gone from last year and the team picked 8th in the conference. This game comes down to the speed and pressure of Penn State against the size of George Washington. This is an important road game for Penn State if they hope to prove worthy of moving forward. Take the visitor here in Penn State.
|11-25-16||Gonzaga v. Florida +3||77-72||Loss||-102||9 h 26 m||Show|
Excellent 2nd round matchup here in the Advocare Invitational between Gonzaga and Florida. Gonzaga had to travel all the way across the country for this tournament, while Florida is in its own backyard. Gonzaga is 4-0 S/U and 0-1 ATS thus far. The Zags haven't played anyone of consequence yet and failed to cover the 27.5 point line in their 82-62 win over Quinnipiac last night. Florida brings a 5-0 S/U and 3-1 ATS mark into tonight's contest. The Gators have spread wins over Mercer, Belmont and Seton Hall. Gonzaga is ranked 11th in the country and have won their first four games by an average of 25.8 ppg. This will be the first big text for Gonzaga this season, while Florida can gain some national recognition with a win. I also like that Florida is close to home while Gonzaga is playing about as far away in the contiguous states. Take the points here with Florida.
|11-25-16||Temple +13 v. West Virginia||81-77||Win||100||2 h 16 m||Show|
Temple enters today's NIT Season-Tip off winning last night's opening round contest against Florida State, 89-86. The cover makes Temple 4-0 against the spread so far this year. The Owls had to overcome an 18-point deficit in the 2nd half to beat FSU. Freshman Quinton Rose led the team with 26-points. West Virginia is 4-0 S/U and 1-0 ATS to start the season. The Mountaineers also played last night and beat Illinois, 89-57. WVU has been hitting very well from both the field and 3-point land. However, their one weakness thus far is shooting free throws, where they are just 60.4% thus far. WVU laying 13 points here and if they have trouble from the free stripe, they won't cover this big of a number. Play Temple.

|11-22-16||Alabama -2.5 v. Valparaiso||60-68||Loss||-105||12 h 6 m||Show|
Most clubs like to pad their early season schedule with small schools or Div 2 clubs. Not so much for Alabama, as they have already faced Dayton and Ball State to open the season. The Tide is 2-1 both S/U and ATS, with their loss coming to Dayton, 77-72. Alabama has been firing from long range, averaging 9.3 three-point field goals per game. The Tide also have a very good bench, evidenced by their bench output equaling Ball State's total points in their matchup. Valparaiso is 3-1 S/U and 0-2 to start the season. Their one test came at Oregon, where they lost 76-54 as 12 point dogs. Short line here tonight with Alabama laying just two-points. I like the Tide with their sharp shooters hitting early. Play Alabama.
|11-21-16||Oklahoma State -3.5 v. Connecticut||98-90||Win||100||9 h 15 m||Show|
Opening round of the Maui Invitational has Oklahoma State taking on U Conn. Ok State is 3-0, roughing up some Div II schools and scoring at least 102 in each game. Their first real test comes today against U Conn. The Huskies also padded their opening three games with fluff matchups. However, no one told those opponents they were to roll over and lose. U Conn lost two of three, including home losses to Wagner and Northeastern. Not very impressed early on here with this U Conn club. We only have to lay two here with Ok State and that is a gift I can't pass up. Play Oklahoma State.
|11-21-16||UC-Davis +1.5 v. CS Sacramento||81-72||Win||100||9 h 44 m||Show|
While these two schools won't garner much attention from the national polls, UC Davis has already made some waves. Davis pulled a nice upset win over Santa Clara as a 5.5 point dog and then beat a decent Northern Arizona club. Davis is 3-1 S/U and 2-1 ATS to start the season. Sacramento State is 1-2 S/U and 0-2 ATS to start the season. The Hornets won their home opener with a win over Antelope Valley, 82-60. The Hornets will have to do a better job tonight defending the three-point line, after they have allowed a .500 shooting from beyond the arc thus far. These clubs have a big history against each other, but on a neutral court my nod goes to UC Davis.
|11-21-16||Colorado v. Notre Dame -2.5||83-89||Win||100||7 h 14 m||Show|
Semifinals of the Legends Classic from Brooklyn, NY has Colorado facing off against Notre Dame. Notre Dame had not trouble with their opening trio of games against Bryant, Seattle and Loyola Maryland, winning each contest by at least 30 points. Colorado had similar results, beating Sacramento State, Seattle and LA Monroe in easy fashion. Both of these clubs are off the National Ranking Radar, but that could change after today. Notre Dame doesn't turn the ball over, ranking fourth in fewest turnovers per game. They are also 2nd in the country in assist to turnover ratio with a 3.4 rating. In a close match up like this, ball control could be the difference, and that goes to the Irish. Play Notre Dame.

|11-16-16||Tulsa v. Wichita State -22||53-80||Win||100||8 h 43 m||Show|
Tulsa is a young team and will be overwhelmed. The Wichita State Shockers are working their way toward a national ranking - something they've been accustomed to over the past few seasons - after crushing Long Beach State 92-55 on Sunday, which followed a season-opening 85-39 rout of South Carolina State on Friday. Wichita State held its first two opponents to 5-for-36 shooting from 3-point range this season. This is a revenge game as Tulsa defeated then-No. 11 Wichita State 77-67 last season to snap a seven-game losing streak in the series, but the Golden Hurricane has lost four straight at Koch Arena. Play Wichita State.
|11-15-16||Long Beach State v. North Carolina -21||67-93||Win||100||9 h 17 m||Show|
North Carolina's offense has been in midseason form the first two games of the season. North Carolina has averaged 96 points in victories over Tulane and Chattanooga while shooting 48.9 percent from the field and 45.7 percent from behind the 3-point arc. The Tar Heels are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after scoring more than 90 points in their previous game. The Long Beach State 49ers (0-1) went cold against Wichita State during a 29-2 run by the Shockers and shot 31.3 percent from the field, making 2-of-20 from 3-point range. Play North Carolina.

Marcus Evans returns to a Rice club that is 24-40 under third year coach Mike Rhoades. Evans is the team's leading scorer (21.4 ppg). All top five scorers return for the Owls as they open their season today. James Madison lost their opener to Old Dominion, 62-55. Now we find JM laying 5 to 6 points here against a Owls team that will definitely improve this year. Just too many points to pass on here. I'm taking Rice.

North Carolina is the only number one seed that has made it to the Championship game this season. They play the second seeded Villanova Wildcats. Villanova is coming off a trouncing of Oklahoma, 95-51. The Cats have had a 24.2-point scoring margin in the tournament. Villanova is also 5-0 ATS on a neutral site this season. North Carolina has won 10 straight games, the last five by double digits. North Carolina had the top ranked offense in the ACC and the seventh ranked defense. Obviously at this juncture you can make a case for either side by the numbers. My own power ratings have Villanova a slight favorite in this one. I'm going to take the points here with Villanova.

The NIT stage moves to Madison Square Garden in New York for their Final Four. Valparaiso draws BYU here in the semifinals. BYU has beaten UAB, Virginia Tech and Creighton to advance to the semis. The Cougars are now just 2-4 ATS their last six games. BYU is also just 2-8 ATS following a ATS win and 16-36 ATS the last 52 games on an neutral court. Valpo has done well on neutral sites, covering five of their last six overall. The Crusaders are coming off an impressive win over the best field goal shooting team in the nation, St Marys. Valpo held the Gaels to just 44 points. Valpo has already dispatched one West Coast Conference team in this tournament, look for number two tonight. Take Valpo.
