Reason: MAC Action today has Northern Illinois at Ball State. Northern Illinois Huskies play their last regular season game here tonight at Ball State. The Huskies are just 14-16 S/U and 15-13 ATS on the season. Ball State hopes to finish above .500 with a win tonight in their final tuneup before the MAC tourney. The Cardinals are 15-15 S/U on the season. Ball State is not a good covering team at all. They are 0-6 ATS in their last six games and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games. In addition, they are 8-25 ATS their last 33 in MAC play. NIU is 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine at Ball State and 11-4-2 ATS in their last 17 overall meetings.

West Coast Conference tournament action has Portland at San Diego. Portland and San Diego open the first round of tourney play here tonight. Portland likely is one and out here as they are a 0-16 S/U in conference play this year. The Pilots have covered four of their last five though. Now they face a good Toreros squad. The Toreros are 18-13 S/U and 16-14 ATS on the season. San Diego has to lay around 13-points here tonight. Portland won't win this game and I look for San Diego to cover this one going away. Play San Diego.

American Athletic play has South Florida at Tulane. South Florida down to its last two games at 16-12 S/U and 16-10 ATS. Not likely South Florida is going to the NCAA without a conference tourney win. The Bulls have done well on the road, covering the last 11 of 13 away games. In addition, they are 14-4 ATS in their last 18 games after covering the previous game. Tulane having a horrible year with just four wins a 24 losses. In addition, they are just 11-16 ATS.

However, they are just 2-4-1 ATS their last seven in conference. In addition, Auburn is just 4-8 ATS this season on the road. The Crimson Tide are 17-12 S/U and 12-15 ATS. The Tide likely would have to win the SEC tournament to advance to the NCAA with just a maximum of 19 wins in the regular season. Auburn is not a great road covering team and that's what I'm going against here tonight. Play Alabama.
|03-05-19||IUPU-Indianapolis v. Wright State -7.5||Top||56-71||Win||100||8 h 9 m||Show|

Sun Belt conference matchup has one of their best in Texas State playing at Troy State. The Texas State Bobcats are 22-6 S/U and 14-10 ATS on the season.

The Troy Trojans won't be going anywhere this postseason. They are just 11-15 S/U and 8-15 ATS. The Trojans have lost three straight both S/U and ATS.

SEC Matchup that finds Florida struggling to get a postseason bid. The Gators might not settle for a NIT or lesser tournament. The NCAA might be too far off for a team with a 16-11 record. The Gators have four games left, but with a road game at Kentucky, it looks like a tough road to 20. Still, the Gators should have little trouble with 9-18 Vandy here tonight. The Commodores are just 9-23 ATS in their last 32 home games and 2-12 ATS their last 14 after covering a game. The road team has covered seven of the last nine in this series and that's what I'm on here tonight. Play Florida.

|02-26-19||St. Louis v. VCU -9.5||65-71||Loss||-109||8 h 11 m||Show|
Atlantic 10 action here has St Louis at VCU. St Louis is having a decent year and could break into the 20 win mark as they currently sit at 17-10 with four games left. However, unless they win their conference tourney it's highly unlikely the Bilikens will make the NCAA tournament. The Bilikens are also just 11-16 ATS on the season with a 4-8 ATS road mark. The VCU Rams look to be one of the elite in this conference and do look destined for a NCAA berth. The Rams are 21-6 S/U and 18-6 ATS on the season. In addition, the Rams are 9-3 ATS at home 10-1 ATS their last 11 vs the Atlantic 10 conference. I like the home team here this evening. Play VCU.

Oklahoma travels to No. 19 Iowa State for a Big 12 contest here on Monday. The Sooners have won two straight games and improved to 17-10. If the Sooners can win three of their last four games they can hit that magic 20 game win number. However, that will be tough with games at Iowa State and Kansas State. Oklahoma is now 17-7-3 ATS their last 23 games and 8-1-3 ATS their last 12 road games. Iowa State can hit that 20 game win number here tonight. The Cyclones are 19-8 S/U and 15-11 ATS on the season.

VCU is headed toward the NCAA's with a 19-6 S/U and 16-6 ATS mark and looks to win its 20th game of the season tonight. The VCU Rams are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games.

|02-17-19||Villanova -4 v. St. John's||65-71||Loss||-107||7 h 47 m||Show|
A Big East flash today between two teams likely headed to the NCAA tournament soon. The Villanova Wildcats are 20-5 S/U and 16-7 ATS. The Cats have lost just once in conference play and that came eight days ago at Marquette, 65-66. Still, Nova is 7-1-1 ATS their last nine games. 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.
|02-16-19||Nevada -21.5 v. Wyoming||82-49||Win||100||10 h 36 m||Show|
The No 7 ranked Nevada Wolfpack has lost just one time all season, and that was at New Mexico back on Jan 5th, 58-85. The Pack has since won nine straight and covered five straight games. 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.
|02-16-19||Gonzaga -15.5 v. San Diego||Top||79-67||Loss||-111||10 h 36 m||Show|
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 Zags have pretty much had little competition in the West Coast Conference as they are a perfect 11-0 S/U and 7-4 ATS. San Diego has lost two straight both S/U and ATS coming into this game. 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|
Late evening action finds Cal Santa Barbara playing at Cal Riverside tonight. The Santa Barbara Gouchos are 17-6 S/U on the season and 12-9 ATS. The Gouchos are 17-6 ATS their last 23 on the road.

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. In addition, they are 14-3 ATS their last 17 in conference play and 5-0 ATS their last five on the road. The Arkansas Little Rock Trojans are 9-15 S/U and 10-12 ATS on the season. 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|

They have lost three of their last four games. Good news is that they are playing at a struggling Xavier team tonight. 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. The dog has covered the last six in this series. The road team is also 20-6-1 ATS the last 27 meetings and the Cavaliers are 13-2-1 ATS their last 16 meetings with Duke.

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. Ole Miss is off a home loss to LSU, so I look for them to be even more motivated to give the home crown something to shout about. Play Mississippi.

The Wolverines are also 21-7-1 ATS their last 29 road games and 25-7-1 their last 33 games vs the Big 10. Michigan laying just 2 or 3 looks like a bargain to me. Play Michigan.

MAC play here tonight has Ohio (9-7 S/U, 4-11 ATS) playing on the road at Toledo (14-3 S/U 10-6 ATS). The Ohio Bobcats are just 1-3 so far in conference play both S/U and ATS. 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.

St Joe's will try and snap that four game losing streak tonight. The Hawks are also just 1-7 ATS their last eight games. 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. The Bearcats have very much under performed when it comes to the spread this year. You have to look no further than their last three games including that East Carolina contest. Meanwhile, South Florida has been great for bettors. I'm taking the points here on Tuesday with the Bulls. Play South Florida.

The Falcons have also won eight of the last 10 games in this series with the Cardinals. This is the first time in Bowling Green history that the school has started 3-0 in conference play. This will be the only time these clubs meet this regular season and I like the team that his hot here. That's Bowling Green.

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.

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.
