No 7 Michigan travels for a Big 10 clash tonight Minnesota. Michigan is 23-3 S/U and 14-11 ATS on the season. The Wolverines had one of their three losses two games ago at Penn State, 69-75. In fact, all three of Michigan's losses have come on the road, at Wisconsin, at Iowa and at Penn State. Now they have to travel to Minnesota, which is 17-9 S/U and 14-12 ATS on the season. Minnesota lost at Michigan earlier this season, but played them tough losing just 57-59 as 12.5-point dogs. The Gophers have covered six of their last eight games. I look for Minnesota to play Michigan tough again here tonight. Take the 5-points here with the home dog, play Minnesota.

This is the second meeting between these clubs, with Baylor taking the first on their home court, 73-70. Iowa State is 19-6 and can get that 20th win here tonight.

Kentucky has two losses in conference, at Alabama and at home vs LSU a few games ago. Still, the Wildcats have covered nine of their last 10 in conference play. Missouri might go to the CIT or CBI if they want, but other than that the postseason looks out of touch for Missouri with their 12-12 record. The Tigers are also 3-5 ATS their last eight games. The favorite has covered seven of the last nine in this series and that's who I'm on tonight. Play Kentucky.

St John's came out and started the season with a 12-0 record. However, they have fallen on some hard times once they got to conference play, going 6-7 S/U in the Big East. Villanova does well vs good teams, going 40-14 ATS their last 54 games against a winning team. They are also 8-1 ATS their last nine in the Big East. Nova is the better team here today and I'll lay the 4-points on the road with the Cats. Play Villanova.

The Pack improved to 15-7 ATS on the season and 7-4 ATS on the road. Wyoming is not a good team and won't likely be playing past the last regular season game. The Cowboys are just 6-18 S/U and 7-16 ATS on the season. That includes covering three of 11 home games this season. Big mismatch here as Nevada should roll easily over the Cowboys. Play Nevada.

West Coast Conference late Saturday action has No 3 ranked Gonzaga playing at San Diego. The Gonzaga Zags are 24-2 S/U and 18-8 ATS on the season.

The Toreros lost at Pepperdine and then last game at home in OT to BYU, 82-88. Little doubt that the Zags will win here tonight. And, with their next game not until the 21st, Gonzaga has plenty of time to rest. Look for a top effort here from Gonzaga. Take Gonzaga.

|02-15-19||Buffalo v. Toledo +3.5||88-82||Loss||-105||6 h 14 m||Show|
A write-in game here tonight finds a pair of really good MAC teams. No 25 Buffalo brings a nifty 21-3 S/U record into tonight's contest at 20-4 Toledo. Even though the Buffalo Bulls have won so many games, they have failed to cover their last three games and six of their last eight games. Can't say the same for Toledo. Not only has Toledo already won 20 games, they have covered 15 games this season. They are 4-0 ATS their last four and 6-2 ATS their last eight. The Home team has covered the last four in this series. Great matchup here, but I like the home team which is getting 3.5-points. Play Toledo.
|02-15-19||Monmouth +7.5 v. Rider||Top||72-81||Loss||-109||6 h 13 m||Show|
A couple of Metro Atlantic clubs that likely won't get to play in any of the post season tournaments. Monmouth Hawks are just 10-16 on the season, but they have covered 14 of 24 tries. The Hawks have won four in a row both S/U and ATS. In fact, the Hawks have been decent in Metro play, posting a 9-4 S/U and ATS record. The Rider Broncs are 13-12 S/U on the season, but just 5-19 ATS. The Broncs are 0-9 ATS their last nine games. They have also lost five straight games. The Broncs are now 6-21 ATS their last 27 games overall. Hawks playing very well of late compared to Rider. For some reason the oddsmakers have made Rider a 7-point favorite here tonight. Not sure how a team that has lost so many S/U in a row and has such a bad spread record can be such a big favorite. Take the visitor, play Monmouth.
|02-14-19||UC-Santa Barbara -6.5 v. UC Riverside||Top||57-71||Loss||-110||9 h 21 m||Show|

Sun Belt action has Texas Arlington playing at Arkansas Little Rock tonight. UTA Mavericks have been very good at covering spreads, evidenced by their 10-1 ATS mark their last 11 games.

The Trojans have covered two straight. However, they are just 2-5 ATS their last 7 and 4-11-1 ATS their last 16 at home. Arlington getting points here as the better team and a team that covers is too much to pass on. Play the visitor, Texas Arlington.
|02-13-19||Minnesota +4 v. Nebraska||61-62||Win||100||8 h 48 m||Show|
Big 10 clash here on Wednesday as Minnesota plays at Nebraska. Minneosta is 16-8 S/U on the season, but looks to snap a 3-game losing streak tonight. The Gophers have covered four of their last six games. The Gophers could get close to that NCAA bubble unless they get back on the winning track here soon. Nebraska will likely have to settle for a NIT bit this year as they are 13-11 S/U on the season and 9/12 ATS. The Huskers are on a seven game losing streak both S/U and ATS. They are also 0-5 ATS their last five straight at home. Yet, here they are laying points tonight at home. Not sure how a team on a 7-game losing streak warrants laying 4-points to a team with a much better record. I'm taking the road team here tonight. Play Minnesota.
|02-13-19||Creighton +1 v. Xavier||Top||61-64||Loss||-110||7 h 18 m||Show|

Xavier is 11-13 S/U on the season and they have lost six straight games and 0-5-1 ATS vs the number. The Muskateers are just 4-15-2 ATS their last 21 vs a team with a winning record. They are also 4-11-3 ATS their last 18 games at home and 0-6 ATS their last six in conference. The road team is 5-2 ATS the last seven in this series. I'm on the road team here tonight. Play Creighton.
|02-13-19||South Carolina +15 v. Tennessee||73-85||Win||100||5 h 18 m||Show|
The top ranked team in the nation is in action tonight as No 1 Tennessee hosts South Carolina. South Carolina is just 12-11 S/U on the season and 9-11 ATS. The Gamecocks haven't done too badly covering in conference though, going 7-4 ATS their 11 games in the SEC. That's nothing new though as going back to last season the Gamecocks are on a 13-4-1 ATS run their last 18 vs the conference. They are also 7-3-1 ATS their last 11 on the road vs a team with a winning home record. The top ranked Volunteers are 22-1 S/U on the season with their only loss coming way back in November in a preseason tournament setback to Kansas in OT, 81-87. Will Tennessee lose tonight? Not likely. However, they Vols are laying 15-points here tonight. Their last two home games were wins by 12 points over both Florida and Missouri. They just beat South Carolina by 22 points at South Carolina on Jan 29th. So why am I on South Carolina tonight. Mainly because this Tennessee team has Kentucky up next and I believe they will be looking past South Carolina tonight toward that big matchup with ranked Kentucky. I'm going to take the points here tonight with South Carolina.
|02-11-19||Kansas v. TCU -2.5||82-77||Loss||-110||8 h 8 m||Show|
Big12 clash here tonight with No 13 Kansas playing at TCU. Both teams are having excellent seasons. Kansas is 18-6 S/U and 10-14 ATS on the year.

In addition, the Boilermakers are 7-2 ATS in Big 10. Purdue has to lay double digits here tonight, but I don't see that as any problem against a struggling Nebraska squad. Take Purdue in a blowout.

Great top 5 matchup here on Saturday as No 4 Virginia travels to take on No 1 Duke. Virginia 16-0 S/U, 12-3 ATS has the nation's top scoring defense at just over 50 ppg. Only one team has cracked 60 points in the team's last nine games and that was a 100-64 win over Marshall. The scoring defense is the big reason this team has covered its last seven games. In addition, the team is 21-8 ATS in the last 29 road games. Duke is the nation's top ranked team and will get its biggest test here today. Duke could lost that top ranked spot as they are coming off a home loss to Syracuse, 91-95 as 17-point home favorites. The club also lost back on November 21 in a tournament game to Gonzaga, 87-89.

Not so for Ole Miss, which is 16-5 ATS in its last 21 games overall, 6-1 ATS in the last seven home games and 4-1 ATS in the last five vs the conference. Arkansas is also on a 3-game losing streak allowing 106 points to Tennessee and 94 to LSU.

The Bobcats have not been a good covering team, having taken the money in just one of their last eight games. Meanwhile, the Toledo Rockets have had an excellent season at 14-3 S/U. The Rockets did start conference play on a bad note, losing their first two games. However, they have rebounded with two straight wins and covers. That makes seven of their last nine games they have covered. The Bobcats are now 5-15-1 ATS their last 21 games on the road. Toledo is 11-3 ATS their last 14 vs Ohio. I'm taking Toledo here tonight.

That includes home losses to George Washington (56-70, 12-point favorite), 60-85 to George Mason (7-point favorite) and a 26-point loss at St Bonaventure as a 1.5-point dog.

The Bearcats are 0-3 ATS in their last three games, all conference matchups. The Bearcats lone conference loss came at East Carolina, 71-73 as 17.5-point favorites.

Meanwhile, South Florida has been great for bettors. I'm taking the points here on Tuesday with the Bulls. Play South Florida.

The Cowboys lost their first two conference games and then won their last two for a 2-2 Big 12 record. The bad news is that OK State has covered just two of their last 10 games. Plus, the Cowboys are just 1-6 ATS in their last seven home games. You might think the Cowboys are playing with revenge in this one considering they have lost six straight to Baylor. However, at which loss does the revenge factor kick in? No, the Bears have covered 5 of seven at Oklahoma State and that's what I expect to see again here tonight. Play Baylor.

Pitt bis also 40-17 ATS their last 57 in conference and 38-13 ATS their last 51 over. Pitt has covered four of the last five vs FSU and that's what I look for again here today. Take Pitt.
|01-13-19||IUPU Ft Wayne -1.5 v. South Dakota||73-87||Loss||-110||2 h 8 m||Show|
Summit League action here on Sunday has IPFW at South Dakota. IPFW is having an excellent season, not only are they 12-7 overall but 4-0 both S/U and ATS in conference play. South Dakota not having such a good season at 7-9 S/U and 5-8 ATS. The Coyotes are 1-2 in Summit League play and have not covered any of their last five games and just one of their last seven games. The Coyotes have also lost three of their last four home games. That makes this a better play for me on the road team. Take Purdue Fort Worth today.
|01-12-19||Arizona -8 v. California||87-65||Win||100||11 h 35 m||Show|
Arizona is 12-4 S/U and 7-7 on the season while Cal has struggled to a 5-10 S/U mark and 5-10 ATS mark. Arizona has opened PAC-12 play with three wins and stands at 3-0. The WildCats are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five road games and 5-1 ATS in their last six vs the PAC-12. Cal has lost four straight and five of six. The Bears are 0-3 in PAC-12 play and have lost each of their three conference games by at least nine points. The Bears are also 1-6 ATS in their last seven games.

|01-12-19||Wichita State v. Houston -11||Top||70-79||Loss||-109||8 h 6 m||Show|
Wichita State not having a season up to their own standards as they are just 7-7 S/U and 5-9 ATS on the season. In addition, the Shockers are 1-6 ATS their last seven games and have lost both of their American Athletic conference games so far. Today won't get any better as they play at 15-1 Houston. The Cougars are also 10-5 ATS on the season. They are coming off their first loss of the season at Temple, 69-71. Still, the Cougars are 20-8-2 ATS their last 30 games overall.

|01-11-19||Wright State v. Northern Kentucky -5||64-68||Loss||-105||9 h 37 m||Show|
Horizon League action today has Wright State playing at Northern Kentucky. Wright State is trying to get back to .500 as they sit at 8-9 on the season and 6-8 ATS. The Raiders are just 2-2 in Horizon league play, but are coming off a win at Oakland last time out, 89-73. Today, they face arguably the best team in the conference in Northern Kentucky. The Norse are 13-4 S/U and 6-9 ATS. NKU is 3-1 in conference play with their one loss at Oakland, 74-75. The Norse have covered three of their four conference games. They are also 17-8-1 ATS their last 26 at home vs a team with a losing road record. The Raiders are just 5-12 ATS their last 17 vs a team with a win percentage greater than 60%. Northern Kentucky shouldn't have much problems here tonight with this struggling Wright State team. Play Northern Kentucky.
|01-10-19||Murray State -12.5 v. Tennessee-Martin||98-77||Win||100||6 h 12 m||Show|

The Hawks are now 7-19 AST in their last 26 games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven home games. Murray State much the better team here tonight. Play Murray State.
|01-10-19||Wofford +1.5 v. NC-Greensboro||72-43||Win||100||5 h 42 m||Show|
Both of these teams having excellent seasons. Wofford is 12-4 S/U and 7-6 ATS. Wofford has won three straight and six of their last seven. The Terriers are also 3-0 in Southern Conference play.

|01-09-19||Fresno State +6.5 v. Utah State||78-77||Win||100||7 h 9 m||Show|
Late action on the college hard court has Utah State hosting Fresno State in Mountain West action. Fresno is 11-3 S/U and 9-4 ATS and has won its first two conference games, beating San Jose on the road, 73-53, and then beating Colorado State at home, 78-67. The Bulldogs have covered five of their last seven games. Utah State is 11-4 S/U and 7-6 ATS on the season. The Aggies split their first two conference games, losing at Nevada 49-72 and then beating Air Force, 79-62. The Aggies are 0-3 ATS their last three and 1-5 ATS their last six.

|01-09-19||Auburn v. Ole Miss +4||67-82||Win||100||5 h 9 m||Show|
SEC action here has Ole Miss hosting Auburn. Auburn is 11-2 S/U and 6-5 ATS on the season. The Tigers open SEC play tonight after a successful non-conference slate. The only issue is that the Tigers covered just one of their last six games. Ole Miss is also 11-2 S/U on the season and a very good 11-2 ATS. The Rebels are 6-1 ATS at home and are 1-0 in conference play after beating Vanderbilt in their conference opener, 81-71. The Rebs have covered seven straight games. Not only is the favorite 6-1 ATS the last seven meetings in this series, but the Rebels are 7-3 ATS the last 10 meetings at Mississippi. Take Ole Miss here tonight.
|01-08-19||Oklahoma +6.5 v. Texas Tech||59-66||Loss||-110||23 h 29 m||Show|
Oklahoma has been a very good covering team for bettors, going 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 overall games and 4-0-1 in their last five road games vs a team with a winning record. Can't say the same of the Texas Tech Red Raiders, who are 0-4 ATS their last four, 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 0-8-1 ATS their last nine vs the Big 12 conference. Oklahoma is 12-2 S/U and 12-1 ATS on the season and their only losses came against Kansas to open Big 12 play and in a tourney game back in November against Wisconsin. Texas Tech is 13-1 S/U on the season, they just haven't been able to cover spreads. They are 2-0 in conference play with wins over West Virginia and Kansas State. I'll take the points here with the road team on Tuesday. Play Oklahoma.
|01-08-19||Eastern Michigan v. Ball State -11.5||Top||84-82||Loss||-108||21 h 28 m||Show|
Eastern Michigan Eagles have not been a bettors friend of late, going just 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games and 0-6 ATS in their last six road games. The Eagles are now 6-8 S/U on the season and opened MAC play with a loss at home to Buffalo, 58-74. Their only cover of the year came against Boston University back on Nov 17th. Ball State doesn't have that problem, going 9-4 ATS on the season and 10-4 S/U. The Cardinals have won four straight and nine of their last 10 games and have covered four straight and six of seven. Ball State opened MAC play with a nice road win at Toledo, 79-64 as a 4.5-point dog. Look for Ball State to put this EMU team away easily here today. This is my blowout winner of the day. Play Ball State.
|01-08-19||Tennessee v. Missouri +8||87-63||Loss||-105||21 h 28 m||Show|
Tennessee opened SEC conference play with a resounding win over Georgia, 96-50. The Volunteers are now 12-1 S/U and 6-5 ATS this season and have covered two straight games. The Volunteers have played only one true road game this season and that was a win at Memphis, 102-92. Missouri brings a 9-3 S/U record into today's contest with a 5-5 ATS mark. The Tigers have won six straight games since a loss to Temple back in November. They are also 4-1-1 ATS their last six games. Home court has played a difference in this matchup, with the host going 6-1 ATS. I'm taking the home team again here today in Missouri.
|01-06-19||St Bonaventure v. George Mason -5||53-68||Win||100||4 h 8 m||Show|
St Bonnys has lost four straight games heading into today's contest. They are also 1-3 ATS. In fact, Bonny's has covered just four of their last 11 games. Today is St Bonny's first Atlantic 10 conference game of the year at George Mason. George Mason opened conference play with a win over St Joe's, 85-60. It was the teams fifth win in the last seven games. In addition, GM has covered four straight and five of six games. I'm taking George Mason here today.
|01-05-19||Wyoming v. UNLV -12.5||56-68||Loss||-107||11 h 20 m||Show|
Wyoming did not have a successful non-conference schedule, going 4-9 S/U and 2-10 ATS. They opened Mountain West play with a home loss to Boise Stae, 55-69, making them 4-10 and 2-11. Now they go to UNLV tonight to face the Rebels. UNLV was 7-6 S/U and 4-4 ATS and opened conference play with a home win over Colorado State, 78-76. Their play has not been all that good, but they do show flashes of being a good team. However, tonight they should have no issues with a very bad Wyoming squad. Normally don't like laying double-digits with this unpredictable UNLV team, but tonight they should have no problems covering. Take UNLV.
|01-03-19||Louisiana Tech +4.5 v. North Texas||59-63||Win||100||6 h 28 m||Show|
La Tech opened conference USA play with a win over Southern Miss, 71-56. The Bulldogs are now 11-3 S/U and 6-6 ATS on the season. Tech has won seven straight games and is 4-2 ATS their last six games. North Texas State is 14-1 S/U to start the season and opened conference play with a win over Rice, 103-87. The Mean Green only loss of the season coming on November 27 at Oklahoma, 57-73. NTS is 0-4 ATS in its last four home games. La Tech is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings with North Texas. I like the points here today with the road team. Play Louisiana Tech.
|01-03-19||Siena -2 v. St. Peter's||60-65||Loss||-105||5 h 28 m||Show|
Metro Atlantic conference play begins today for both these teams in what is now an early game today in a time change. Siena finished their non-conference schedule with a 5-8 record and a 7-6 ATS mark. The Saints covered three of their last four games and are off a win over Cal Poly, 75-54. St Peters enters conference play with a 3-9 S/U and 4-7 ATS mark. The Peacocks snapped a five-game losing streak with an OT win last game over Hampton, 83-80. Still, this is not a very good team with just wins over Lafayette, Main and Hampton - ALL three wins coming in Overtime. St Peters is now 1-4 ATS in their last five home games. Siena is 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games. I like the visitor here today. Play Siena.
|01-03-19||Northern Kentucky v. Oakland +4||74-76||Win||100||5 h 27 m||Show|
Northern Kentucky continues their Horizon conference play here today after opening with a pair of wins over IUPIU and then Illinois Chicago. The Norse have won fou8r straight games and are now 12-3 S/U on the season with a 5-8 ATS mark. Oakland has played just three home games this entire season with a 6-9 overall record and 7-7 ATS mark. In fact, this will be the Golden Grizzlies first home game since November 19th. The Grizzlies have played eight straight away games, winning their last two, both in conference play. The Grizzlies have covered four of the last five in this series. Getting points at home with Oakland here is too much to pass on. Play Oakland.
|01-02-19||Connecticut v. South Florida +2.5||68-76||Win||100||8 h 12 m||Show|
Two teams, both with nine wins in non-conference play, meet today in their first American Athletic Conference game. U Conn lost its last game on a neutral site to Villanova, 58-81. The Huskies didn't do well on the neutral site games, going 1-3 so far this season and 1-2-1 ATS. South Florida ended non-con play at 9-3 S/U and 6-5 ATS. The Bulls have won six straight games since their last loss to Citadel. U Conn hasn't done well on the road, evidenced by their 1-8 ATS mark their last nine games. They are also 2-7 ATS in their last nine conference games. As for the Bulls, they are 6-0 ATS in their last six games vs a team with a record of 60% or better. They are also 4-1 ATS in their last five conference games. South Florida getting a few points at home here is enough for me. I'm taking the home club plus the points. Play South Florida.
|12-31-18||Creighton v. Providence -1.5||79-68||Loss||-122||5 h 51 m||Show|
Two very good teams clash here on New Year's eve as Creighton takes on Providence. Both teams start Big East play here today after successful non-conference campaigns. The Blue Jays ended non-con play with a 9-4 S/U and 6-6 ATS record. They did have notable losses to Ohio State, Gonzaga, Nebraska and Oklahoma - their really only big challengers. Providence lost to Michigan but did just beat Texas on the road, 71-65. The Friars finished 10-3 S/U and 7-5 ATS. Creighton is only 2-8 ATS in its last 10 vs the Big 10 and 1-6 ATS in the last seven overall road games. The Friars are 5-1 ATS in their last six vs the Big East and 5-1 ATS overall their last six. I like Providence here today at home.
|12-30-18||Drexel v. Hofstra -13.5||75-89||Win||100||6 h 58 m||Show|
Colonial Athletic contest here between the reeling Drexel Dragons and the very good Hofstra Pride. Drexel brings a three game losing streak into this contest and has also lost four of the last five. Hofstra opened conference play with a rout of Delaware, 91-46. The Dragons have won eight straight games and covered four straight and 10 of their 12 lines this season. This should be an easy cover for the home team, even with a line of 14.5-points. Take Hofstra.
|12-30-18||Oakland -4.5 v. Youngstown State||76-74||Loss||-108||4 h 57 m||Show|
Two teams both struggling meet up here on Sunday with 5-9 Oakland playing at 4-10 Youngstown State. Oakland Golden Grizzlies are 10-3-2 ATS in their last 15 road games vs a losing home team. Youngstown Penguins are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 overall and 0-5 ATS their last five vs the Horizon League. The road team has had the best of it in this series, going 8-3-1 ATS the last 12 meetings. Oakland is favored on the road for a reason, they are the better team. Play Oakland.
|12-29-18||St. John's +3.5 v. Seton Hall||74-76||Win||100||9 h 30 m||Show|
Undefeated St Johns (12-0) takes on 9-3 Seton Hall here today. St John's isn't ranked because of the quality of their opponents. They did beat VCU in OT, Cal and Rutgers. However, none of those three are as good as they used to be. Seton Hall has won five straight since they had a two-game losing streak. The two teams they lost to were Miami Florida by 18 points and Louisville by five pints. Hard to not take an undefeated team getting points. My numbers have these teams about even, so I'll take the points here with St Johns.
|12-21-18||Ole Miss -13 v. Middle Tennessee||Top||74-56||Win||100||6 h 4 m||Show|
Ole Miss takes their 8-2 record both S/U and ATS tonight to Middle Tennessee State (3-8 S/U and 0-9 ATS). Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders still looking for that first cover of the season against nine losses. In addition, they are just 1-12 ATS their last 13 games. The club hasn't even won straight up since their fourth game of the year vs Charleston Southern. It's been a long losing streak for the Raiders and it doesn't look to end here tonight either vs Ole Miss. Not only is Ole Miss on a five-game win streak, but they have covered four straight. This game won't be played on the MTSU home court, rather it will move from Murfeesburo to Nashville, TN. A change of venue won't help this Raiders team tonight. Look for a blowout win by Ole Miss.
|12-21-18||Illinois State v. UCF -13.5||56-77||Win||100||5 h 4 m||Show|
Illinois State (7-5 S/U, 4-6 ATS) plays at Central Florida (9-2 S/U, 7-4 ATS) tonight. Illinois State Redbirds coming off an OT home win over Cleveland State, 88-77 as 9.5-point favorites. The Birds snapped a three game losing streak both S/U and ATS with that win. The CF Knights have won three straight games and eight of their last nine. The Red Birds are just 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 away games and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 road games vs a winning home team. Meanwhile, the Knights are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 non-conference games and 37-18 ATS in their last 55 home games. Central Florida should have no trouble covering this game tonight. Play Central Florida.
|12-21-18||IUPU-Indianapolis -2 v. Morehead State||70-74||Loss||-109||4 h 35 m||Show|
Indiana-Purdue off to a good start this season as they get ready for conference play. The Jaguars are 8-4 S/U and 8-2 ATS so far this season. Jags coming off a loss though at Indiana-Fort Wayne, 77-87. IUPUI did get a quality win earlier this year at Boston College with a 71-65 win as 16.5-point dogs. Morehead State has lost three straight games and six of their last seven. In addition, they have covered just one time in their last six tries. The Eagles are just 1-4-1 in their last six non-conference games and 2-12 ATS in their last 14 vs the Horizon conference. Jaguars just a much better team and laying just two points is a steal here tonight. Play Indiana-Purdue.
|12-19-18||Auburn v. NC State +2||Top||71-78||Win||100||6 h 30 m||Show|
Great matchup here as a pair of 9-1 teams faceoff with NC State hosting Auburn. Despite their identical records, Auburn ranked 7th in the country while NC State not even ranked. Auburn has not covered it's last three games and had to go to OT to beat UAB last time out, 75-71. The Tigers are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games vs a team with a winning record. NC State has covered four straight games and seven of nine this year. The Wolfpack scores a lot of points, at least 80 in each of the last three and has not scored less than 75 points in any game this season. In addition, the Wolfpack are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 home games. Yet, Auburn is a 1-point favorite here tonight. My numbers have NC State a 4-point favorite and considering how well NC State is covering, I have to agree. Take NC State.
|12-19-18||Penn State v. Duquesne +5.5||73-67||Loss||-109||5 h 30 m||Show|
Penn State just 5-5 thus far. They have played two games against Big 10 foes and are 0-2 both S/U and ATS. The Nittany Lions are 0-4 ATS their last four and 3-6 ATS on the season. Duquesne has had a good non-conference slate, going 8-2 S/U and 4-5 ATS. The Dukes have played pretty much at home with just two road games. They will play the next three at home too. That makes it much easier for this club. They have been big favorites of late, at least 12.5 points in their last three games. Today for some reason they are a dog at home to a 5-5 club. I find that difficult to understand, especially for a team that's been playing mostly home games to this point. In addition, the Dukes are 6-2-1 ATS their last nine vs the Big 10. Taking the points is too easy for me here. Play Duquesne.
|12-18-18||Buffalo +3.5 v. Syracuse||71-59||Win||100||8 h 36 m||Show|
A matchup of top 25 teams here today. Buffalo is off to it's best start with a perfect 10-0 mark this season and a No. 14 national ranking. No 25. Syracuse is coming off a disappointing home lose to Old Dominion, 62-68 as a 9.5-point favorite. Syracuse will have to slow down a Bulls offense that has been very good and led by CJ Massinburg who averages 17.1 ppg. The Orange have only covered three of their last four games. Meanwhile, Buffalo has covered six of eight. They also have scored 73 points or more in seven straight and all but one game this year. I like Buffalo in this one to win outright, but I'll take the 3 or 4 points here with the road dog. Play Buffalo.
|12-17-18||Ball State +1 v. Valparaiso||Top||77-61||Win||100||9 h 14 m||Show|
A pair of 6-4 teams matchup here today as Valparaiso hosts Ball State. Ball State is 5-4 ATS on the season. As the MAC season approaches, Ball State has its last non-conference road game here today. The Cardinals are 3-1 ATS on the road this year against those non-conference teams. This team can score points, evidenced by their 75 or more points in six straight games and eight of their 10 this year. Valpo is only 3-6 ATS on the season. The Crusaders are 2-5 ATS in their last seven non-conference games and 1-6 ATS their last seven after a straight-up win. The Crusaders are coming off a win at George Washington, 82-79 as 4.5-point chalks. This game basically a pick by the oddsmakers, but my numbers show Ball State should be the favorite. I'm taking the visitor here today. Play Ball State.
|12-17-18||Arizona State -1 v. Vanderbilt||65-81||Loss||-106||8 h 15 m||Show|
Arizona State is off to a really nice start this year. But that shouldn't come as a surprise, this Sun Devils' team usually does well before PAC-12 play. The Devils are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 Non-conference games. ASU is 8-1 S/U and 3-4 ATS this season. The Sun Devils haven't done well covering those double-digit favorite lines this year, going 1-3 ATS. Today, they lay just 1-point to Vanderbilt. Vandy is 6-2 S/U and 3-4 ATS this season. Vandy has been double digit favorites in five of their seven games. That means they are playing very inferior competition. Their only two challenges were a 15-point loss to North Carolina State and a win at USC, 82-78. I'm not convinced this Vandy team is very good. I know ASU is good and I just need them to win here tonight. Play Arizona State.
|12-17-18||Davidson -1.5 v. Wake Forest||63-67||Loss||-115||8 h 14 m||Show|
Davidson brings its 8-2 S/U and 7-3 record to Wake Forest tonight. The Demon Deacons of Wake Forest are 5-3 S/U and 3-5 ATS. Davidson is 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall, all non-conference games. Davidson is coming off its second loss of the season, a 75-77 OT setback in a tournament to Temple. Still, they have covered five of their last six. Wake can't seem to get any momentum going. The Deacons have won more than one game in a row just one time this season. They are also 1-3 ATS in their last four games. They are also 1-6 ATS in their last seven home games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 overall. I'm taking Davidson here today minus 2-points. Play Davidson.
