|03-06-18||Long Island +8 v. Wagner||71-61||Win||100||5 h 6 m||Show|
Northeast tourney action today has LIU Brooklyn playing against Wagner in the Championship game. Brooklyn has wins over St Francis NY and Fairleigh Dickinson to get here tonight. Wagner beat Central Conn and Robert Morris to make tonight's contest. I have to rely on my lines a lot in these type of games, but that's also where I find some gems. Tonight I have Wagner as just a two-point favorite and as high as a 5 point chalk. With Wagner laying eight points here my numbers put me solidly on the dog. Play Brooklyn.
|03-05-18||Denver v. South Dakota -11||Top||58-76||Win||100||6 h 5 m||Show|
It's difficult enough for these college teams to play back-to-back spots, something they aren't used to doing during the regular season. But, when they have to also play the next day after a tough OT game, that's even harder. That's just what Denver is doing here tonight. Denver had a tough game last night vs Oral Roberts, back and forth most of the game. Denver had to go into OT before winning 90-88. Now they have to play a very good South Dakota team. South Dakota has 25 wins on the season and has covered 10 of the last 12 games. Last time these teams met, South Dakota was upset 68-84 as a 8.5 point road favorite. This one is about fatigue on Denver's part and South Dakota being the best in the league. Play South Dakota.
|03-04-18||Michigan +4.5 v. Purdue||75-66||Win||100||5 h 6 m||Show|
Big 10 Championship game as Michigan takes on Purdue. Michigan had to go to OT in game one vs Iowa to advance to the quarterfinals where they easily beat Nebraska, 77-58. Then yesterday in the Quarterfinals they handled Michigan State, 75-64. Purdue comes into today game with a five game win streak, including conference tourney wins over Rutgers and Penn State. However, they are just 1-10-1 ATS in their last 11 games. This Purdue team just can't perform to expectations of the oddsmakers. I'm taking Michigan today plus the points.
|03-04-18||East Carolina v. Memphis -13.5||70-90||Win||100||4 h 32 m||Show|
These clubs playing their last of regular season games. East Carolina is on a four game losing streak entering today's play. ECU has also lost three straight vs the number. Memphis had its four game win streak snapped last time out with a loss vs South Florida, 51-75. The Tigers have covered four of their last five games. Memphis laying 13.5 points today is lower than what I have for this game. My own lines show that Memphis can be from 15.5 to 18 points, especially in recent form numbers. I'm laying the double digits here with Memphis.
|03-04-18||Illinois State +8.5 v. Loyola-Chicago||49-65||Loss||-102||3 h 31 m||Show|
Missouri Valley Championship game today has Illinois State facing off against Loyola Chicago. Illinois State opened with a win over Indiana State and then in the Semi's beat Southern Illinois in OT, 76-68. Loyola opened with a win over Northern Iowa and then yesterday beat Bradley in the Semi's, 62-54. Loyola his laying eight points right now and my recent numbers show me this is just a bit too high. Illinois State has covered five straight games while Loyola is just 1-2 in their last three. I like the points here with the dog, play Illinois State.
|03-03-18||North Carolina +7.5 v. Duke||64-74||Loss||-115||9 h 52 m||Show|
Last game of the regular season for these clubs. NCU and Duke face off in a big ACC game here today. North Carolina saw its six game win streak snapped last game by Miami Florida, 88-91. Duke also saw its five game win streak snapped by Virginia Tech, 63-64. Now these storied rivals will get one last crack at each other before the tournament begins. Neither team is in jeopardy of not making the NCAA's. Only question is which team will perform better and get the higher seeding. In this big rivalries I like to take the dog since I could easily see the Tar Heels winning this one outright. Take the points with North Carolina.
|03-03-18||Notre Dame +9.5 v. Virginia||57-62||Win||100||5 h 37 m||Show|
Both these teams finish up their ACC regular season play. Notre Dame needs wins, with just 18 wins this year they are a bubble team right now to make the NCAA's. Not so for top ranked Virginia, which sits at 28-2 on the season. Virginia owns that smothering defense which has allowed over 60 points just one time in regulation the last seven games. Not much motivation here today for the Cavaliers, who likely get the overall top seed in the tournament. Notre Dame needs this one much worse, so I'm taking the points with the Irish.
|03-02-18||Northern Iowa v. Loyola-Chicago -5||50-54||Loss||-104||2 h 55 m||Show|
Early action today in the Missouri Valley quarterfinals as Northern Iowa takes on Loyola Chicago. Northern Iowa opened conference tourny play yesterday with a win over Evansville, 60-50. They now come right back today and today play a Loyola team that has had five days off to prepare for this game. That means a lot in these conference tourneys as teams usually don't have to play back-to-back or three games in three days normally. With Loyola getting lots of rest and Northern Iowa playing yesterday, I like this spot for the Ramblers. Take Loyola Chicago.
|03-01-18||NC State -2 v. Georgia Tech||75-78||Loss||-101||8 h 37 m||Show|
ACC regular season action winding down as NC State takes on Georgia Tech tonight. State has two games remaining, tonight and then they close at home vs Louisville. NC State has been on a run, winning four straight games and seven of their last nine. The Wolfpack has also covered four straight and six of their last eight games. Georgia Tech has had a rough season, winning just 11 and losing 19. Tech has lost seven straight games and is 2-5 ATS in their last seven. State has to lay two-points here tonight. They have momentum and they are the better team. Play NC State
|03-01-18||Iowa v. Michigan -8.5||Top||71-77||Loss||-110||2 h 22 m||Show|
Early afternoon game here as Michigan takes on Iowa in Big 10 Conference Tourney play. Iowa had the tough task of playing last night and turning around and playing in less than 24 hours. This is something these teams don't usually do during the season. Iowa jumped out to an early lead vs Illinois on Wednesday and never looked back, winning 96-87. The Hawkeyes have won two straight after a six game losing streak. Michigan will make the NCAA whether they win or lose in this tourney. With 25 wins the Wolverines have won five straight and seven of the last eight. They swept Iowa this season, winning at Iowa 75-68 and then at home over the Hawkeyes, 74-59. Michigan laying 8.5 points here, but with a tired Iowa team I don't see that as a problem. Play Michigan.
|02-28-18||New Mexico -4.5 v. Colorado State||108-87||Win||100||6 h 39 m||Show|
New Mexico has won three straight games coming into this contest. The Lobos have also covered two of their last three games. Colorado State has had a horrible time in conference play, going 0-3 their last three and 1-10 their last 10. In addition, the Rams have covered just one of their last three games and are 3-6-2 ATS their last 11 games. Take the visitor here in New Mexico.
|02-28-18||Ole Miss v. Kentucky -8.5||78-96||Win||100||6 h 58 m||Show|
SEC matchup here today between Ole Miss and Kentucky. Mississippi is down to their last two regular season games with tonight's contest and then a home game vs Vandy. the Rebels have been awful, winning just one of their lat nine games. In addition, the Rebs are just 1-8 ATS in their last nine games. Ole Miss has not been good on the road either, covering just three of their nine road games this year. Kentucky has a three game win streak coming into tonight. They also have two games left with tonight's contest and then a road game at Florida. The Wildcats had a rough streak, losing four straight games both S/U and ATS. The Cats are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 home games vs a teams with a losing record. Kentucky has also covered five of the last six meetings in this series. Take Kentucky tonight.
|02-28-18||Temple -2 v. Connecticut||66-72||Loss||-108||4 h 34 m||Show|
Temple has been good for bettors of late, going 7-1 ATS in their last eight games (All conference). They are also 6-1 ATS on the road their last seven games. Can't say the same for U Conn. The Huskies are 0-6 ATS in their last six vs conference opponents, 7-21 ATS in their last 21 home games and 9-23 ATS their last 32 overall. I like the visitor here, take Temple.
|02-28-18||Dayton v. La Salle -2.5||53-71||Win||100||4 h 33 m||Show|
Atlantic 10 play here tonight has Dayton playing at La Salle. Dayton has just two games left in the regular season and can make it to .500 with a win tonight and a final win at George Washington. The Flyers are 0-5 ATS in their last five and 1-9-1 ATS their last 11 games. La Salle has won two of its las three games. After a terrible spread run of 0-6, they have bounced back with two straight covers. Dayton has struggled on the road, losing their last five vs the number and going just 1-8 ATS their last nine away games. Take La Salle here tonight.
|02-27-18||Oklahoma v. Baylor -3.5||64-87||Win||100||9 h 56 m||Show|
A pair of 17 win teams face off today as Oklahoma plays at Baylor. Oklahoma finally got a win, beating Kansas State at home last time, 86-77. The win snapped a six game losing streak for Oklahoma. In fact, the Sooners have not been good on the road, failing to cover in each of their last eight games. The Sooners have covered just one time on the road in conference play this year and that was way back in December. Baylor had been on a nice five game win streak before losing at home to West Virginia and then at TCU. Still, the Bears have covered six of their last eight games. In addition, they are 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games. Two very contrasting teams here tonight. The Sooners are bad, especially on the road and the Bears are good at home. Take Baylor tonight
|02-26-18||Texas Tech v. West Virginia -6.5||74-84||Win||100||8 h 13 m||Show|
Two teams here that both have over 20 wins meet tonight as Texas Tech takes on West Virginia. Both of these teams can still tie Kansas for the Big 12 regular season title. However, more than likely this is a game for the 2nd seed in the conference. Texas Tech has an excellent defense, allowing just 29 points in the first half of games this season and holding opponents to under 40% shooting. West Virginia lead the first matchup between these teams by 11 points, but they gave it up late and lost by just one point. Motivation shouldn't be an issue here as they want to get the bad taste of that loss at Tech out of their mouth and they want that #2 seed. This should be a great game, but don't expect West Virginia to be giving up a big lead tonight. Play West Virginia.
|02-25-18||UNLV v. New Mexico -3||90-91||Loss||-109||2 h 26 m||Show|
Motivation at this point in the season plays a big part in how teams perform in these last few conference tames. UNLV has lost two straight games to San Diego State and Fresno State. Now they have three Mountain West games left, today at New Mexico then home to play Nevada and close out at Utah State. Problem for UNLV is that they will not finish above .500 in conference play. That means they have lost that first round bye in the Mountain West Conference tourney. So really they have little to play for today. New Mexico has won two straight games including a monster performance last time out at Wyoming where they scored a season
|02-24-18||Indiana State v. Bradley -5.5||66-64||Loss||-108||16 h 45 m||Show|
Missouri Valley conference action today has Indiana State play its last game of the regular season. Indiana State has lost four of its last five games. In addition, they have failed to cover in each of their last five games and eight of the last nine. Bradley can reach 21 wins today in its final regular season game. The Braves have lost just one time on their home court all season and that was to Drake earlier this month. Moreover, Bradley is 8-1-2 ATS in its 11 home games. Bradley just a much better team, lay the points here with the home club. Take Bradley.
|02-24-18||South Carolina v. Mississippi State -7||Top||68-72||Loss||-100||5 h 46 m||Show|
SEC action today has South Carolina (16-13 S/U, 14-14 ATS) playing at Mississippi State (20-8 S/U, 12-11 ATS). The Gamecocks have won their last two games, both at home. That followed a six game losing skid S/U and 1-5 mark vs the number. Today South Carolina faces a Bulldogs team that is 5-0 ATS in its last five home games, 8-0 ATS in its last eight overall and 6-0 ATS vs a team with a winning record. The Bulldogs still have three games left with Tennessee and LSU up next. This team can easily win 22 games and likely an automatic bid to the NCAA tourney. State is very tough on its home court and the Gamecocks are the perfect opponent for a plucking today. Play Mississippi State.
|02-24-18||Valparaiso v. Drake -5.5||69-64||Loss||-101||15 h 34 m||Show|
The final game of the regular season today for both these Missouri Valley conference teams. Valpo is 14-16 on the season, but has lost nine of its last 12 conference games. Drake has been excellent at home, covering seven of their nine games. Drake has won three of their last four conference games both S/U and ATS. I believe Valpo is a better team then we've seen this season, but right now the momentum is with Drake. Play the home team here in Drake.
|02-24-18||Louisville v. Virginia Tech -3||75-68||Loss||-105||2 h 15 m||Show|
Atlantic Coast Conference action here today as Louisville (18-11) plays at Virginia Tech(21-8). Louisville has struggled of late losing its last two games and five fo the last seven. The Cardinals have also not covered the last two games and four of the last six. Tech just a 3.5 point favorite here today while my recent form numbers have them seven and six points. Louisville has struggled against good teams, posting just a 7-18-1 ATS mark the last 26 vs a team with a winning percentage above 60 percent. The Hokies have been tough at home, covering 27 of their last 38 games. Tech is way too good at home to pass on this small line. Play Virginia Tech.
|02-22-18||UCLA v. Utah -2.5||78-84||Win||100||8 h 42 m||Show|
PAC 12 action tonight has UCLA (19-8 S/U, 13-13 ATS) playing at Utah (17-9 S/U, 14-10 ATS). UCLA looks for its 20th win of the season tonight at Utah. The Bruins have won two straight and six of the last seven games. UCLA hasn't done quite as well on the road, going just 1-3 their last four and 2-4 their last six. Utah brings a four-game win streak into tonight's contest. The Utes have also covered three of their last four and seven of their last nine. Utah has also covered their last four at home. The home team has covered eight of the last nine in this series. The Utes have also covered the last four vs the Bruins in Utah. I like Utah here tonight. Play Utah.
|02-21-18||DePaul +19 v. Villanova||62-93||Loss||-104||4 h 37 m||Show|
Big East play today has Depaul (10-16) playing at Villanova (24-3). Depaul got beat bad in their first meeting with Villanova back in December, 103-85. Since that game, Depaul has won just three times. I don't expect them to win tonight against a Villanova club that has 24 wins. However, Depaul has been good to bettors on the road, covering eight of their 12 games. I also like that Villanova will have a pair of tough road games up next, with Creighton and Seton Hall on the schedule. This is a classic look-ahead spot for Villanova as they don't feel they can lose to Depaul. Good spot to rest their best players in the 2nd half of the game for the upcoming road trip. Take the points here with Depaul.
|02-21-18||Michigan v. Penn State -4||72-63||Loss||-110||2 h 8 m||Show|
Big Ten Action tonight as Michigan takes on Penn State. Michigan has 22 wins this season with just two games left in the conference schedule. Both of their last two games ar on the road with Penn State and Maryland. The Wolverines have won three straight and five of their last six. Penn State can reach 20 wins tonight with a win at home over Michigan or in their last game at Nebraska. The Nittany Lions have won four of their last five games and covered seven of their last eight games. Penn State is a 3.5 point favorite here tonight. My recent form numbers have them double digits and that's good for me. I'm taking Penn State.
|02-21-18||SMU v. East Carolina +8||77-58||Loss||-102||2 h 8 m||Show|
American Athletic play tonight has SMU (15-12 S/U, 7-13 ATS) playing at East Carolina (10-15 S/U, 10-8 ATS). SMU comes into tonight's contest riding a five game losing streak. They are also doing poorly for bettors with a 2-9-1 ATS mark their last 12 games. East Carolina is coming off a home loss to U Conn, 80-84. The Pirates have done well at home, covering their last five games on their home court. Can't say the same for SMU, which is just 1-6-1 ATS on the road this season. Getting eight points at home with a team that covers on its home court is good to me. I'll take the points with East Carolina.
|02-21-18||Xavier v. Georgetown +5.5||89-77||Loss||-102||2 h 38 m||Show|
Big East Conference play is winding down and Xavier looks to stay with the top teams in the conference with a win here today at Georgetown. Xavier saw its nine-game win streak snapped last game at home in a loss to Villanova, 79-95. Xavier has covered six of their last eight games. Georgetown is 15-10 on the season and has won two straight games. The Hoyas have also covered five straight games. The last time these clubs met, Xavier lost in OT, 91-96 on their home court. Georgetown is covering spreads and now they get 5.5 points on their home court. I'll take Georgetown tonight.
|02-20-18||Kentucky v. Arkansas -5.5||Top||87-72||Loss||-108||9 h 58 m||Show|
SEC play tonight has Kentucky 18-9 S/U, 10-16 ATS) playing at Arkansas (19-8 S/U, 14-13 ATS). The Kentucky Wildcats have struggled lately in conference, losing four of their last five games and failing to cover five of their last six games. Meanwhile, Arkansas has won four straight both S/U and ATS. The Razorbacks, which started SEC poorly, have finished strong as they head into the home stretch of the regular season. Arkansas has home games vs Kentucky and Auburn left with two away games at Alabama and Missouri. My recent form number has Arkansas as a 11-point favorite here, well above the 5.5-point line posted tonight. I like the way Arkansas is playing while Kentucky has struggled. Play the home team, Arkansas
|02-20-18||Ole Miss v. Missouri -7.5||90-87||Loss||-105||9 h 53 m||Show|
SEC action here tonight has 9-17 Mississippi playing at Missouri (18-9). Ole Miss has struggled, especially in the SEC where it has lost seven straight and nine of the last 10. They have fared any better vs the number, going 0-7 ATS their last seven games. In addition, the Rebels are just 2-9 ATS on the road this season. Missouri saw its five game SEC win streak snapped last game at LSU, losing 63-64. The Tigers are 4-1-1 ATS their last five games. The line has dropped to Missouri minus 7.5-points, which makes this a play for me as I have the Tigers at just over double digits. Play Missouri.
|02-19-18||Minnesota v. Wisconsin -7||63-73||Win||100||7 h 14 m||Show|
Two teams that will need to do well once the Big 10 Tourney comes are Wisconsin and Minnesota. Both club just over or just below the .500 mark. Minnesota has lost eight straight games coming into tonight's contest. In addition, they have lost 11 of their last 14 games. They haven't fared much better against the number, covering just one game in their last nine and going 2-10 ATS in their last 12 contests. Wisconsin is coming off a big home win over Purdue, 57-53 as a 11-point dog. The Badgers have won two lf their last three games. Still, they are just 4-9 in conference play. My recent power number clearly favor the Badgers in this matchup, by as much as 13 points. I'll lay the seven with the home team. Play Wisconsin.
|02-18-18||Loyola-Chicago -5.5 v. Evansville||76-66||Win||100||4 h 15 m||Show|
Loyola Chicago is having a excellent season with 22 wins and just five losses. The Ramblers are also 15-7 ATS on the season, 8-3 ATS on the road. Loyola has lost just two games in conference play, once at Missouri State to open Missouri Valley play and the other at Bradley on Jan 31st. The Ramblers have also covered three of their last four and 10 of their last 12. Evansville is 16-13 on the season. They have lost two straight and three of their last four games. In their previous game at Loyola Chicago they lost 59-66, but just covered the eight-point spread. Evansville will likely be without guard Dru Smith, who was downgraded to doubtful with a foot injury. Smith averaged 13.4 ppg. I'm taking Loyola here on Sunday.
|02-18-18||Houston v. Temple +3||Top||80-59||Loss||-100||4 h 5 m||Show|
Temple was looking for a huge upset win last game at Wichita State. The Owls jumped out to monster lead at halftime, 56-42. However, they seemed to be gassed in the second half, losing 30-51 and ultimately the game by a 86-93 mark. The Owls still got the cover though, their sixth in a row. Now, they take on a Houston team they lost to by just three points as a 7.5 point dog their fist time. Houston is 20-5 on the season and 12-8 ATS. Houston has won three straight (all at home). The have lost two of their last three on the road though. In fact, they have also covered just one of their last five on the road. I like the home dog here as Temple is playing very well and has home court. Take the points with Temple.
|02-18-18||Nebraska +1 v. Illinois||66-72||Loss||-105||4 h 45 m||Show|
Nebraska is one of those quiet teams in the Big 10 this year that has jumped to 20 wins. The Huskers have won six straight games and eight of their last nine. In addition, Nebraska has covered eight straight and 12 of their last 13 games. Illinois has not had a good year at just 12-15 on the season and 9-13 ATS. The Fighting Illini have lost four straight games and 10 of their last 12. Nebraska has covered its last eight game on the road while Illinois has covered just one of it last seven at home.

They haven't done any better vs the number, going 0-6 ATS their last six games. They are also 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games. Miss State has done better, posting a 18-8 record on the season.

A little revenge on the board here too, as Ole Miss beat Mississippi State in their first meeting back in early January, 64-58. Look for an easy Mississippi State win today.

Baylor has also been hot of late, winning four straight games. The Bears don't have the same winning record as Tech, but they have been good to bettors. Baylor has covered five straight games and is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games. What I like most about Baylor is at home. The Bears have covered four of their last five home games. Take Baylor here on Saturday.

The Spiders have been a much better team at home, covering four of their last six games. The Bilikens are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games vs a team with a losing overall home record. Richmond has covered seven of its last nine conference games and that's just what I look for her today. Play Richmond.

UAB has been struggling vs the number lately, going just 2-7 ATS in their last nine games (all conference). In addition, they are just 5-13 ATS in their last 18 road games vs a home team with a winning percentage of .60 or better. Moreover, on the road they have covered just seven of 24 tries. Can't say the same for the Southern Miss Golden Eagles. The Eagles are 19-7 ATS at home vs a losing road team. They are 7-1 ATS in their last overall home games. Just four games left for Southern Miss and two at home. I like them to cover this one of their last two on their home court. Play Southern Miss.
|02-17-18||Auburn -6 v. South Carolina||75-84||Loss||-110||3 h 11 m||Show|
SEC Action this afternoon has a very good Auburn team (23-3 S/U, 18-6 ATS) playing at South Carolina (13-13 S/U, 11-14 ATS). Auburn has been one of the best this season with 23 wins. Two of the Tigers losses have come in conference, one to Texas A&M and the other to Alabama. The Tigers have also covered well, going 7-1 ATS in their last eight games.

I like Auburn a lot here on Saturday.
|02-15-18||Hawaii v. Cal-Irvine -6.5||Top||62-61||Loss||-112||10 h 2 m||Show|
Hawaii makes the long trip East to play at Cal Irvine tonight. The Rainbow Warriors have lost five straight games. Due to distance, the team only makes limited road trips and so far this year they are 1-4 S/U, 2-3 ATS away from home. Meanwhile, UC Irvine has won five straight and seven of their last eight games. The Anteaters are also 5-0 ATS their last five and 7-2-1 ATS their last 10 games. Hawaii not playing well of late, evidenced by my own recent form line of well over double-digits on the home team here. I will lay the points with UC Irvine tonight.

Oregon State has won two straight games after a four game losing streak. The Beavers have also covered just three of eight away games this season. UCLA saw its four game win streak snapped at Arizona State last time out, 79-88. The Bruins did beat Arizona on the road, 82-74 the game before. UCLA is also 4-2 ATS in their last six games. Bruins play two home games now before closing out the regular season with three road games. That makes these next two at home even more important. I look for UCLA to cover here tonight vs the Beavers. Take UCLA

Depaul snapped a three game losing streak with a win last game at Providence, 80-63. The Blue Demons are still just 2-6 in their last eight conference games. Two mediocre to bottom level conference teams with a line of St Johns 1.5. My numbers play a huge role in my decision here. I have a big edge to St Johns, especially in recent form numbers where they are as high as 10-points. I have great trust in my numbers, so I'm taking St Johns.
|02-14-18||Utah State +5.5 v. New Mexico||63-78||Loss||-100||7 h 8 m||Show|
Mountain West contest here has Utah State (14-12 S/U, 12-11 ATS) playing at New Mexico (12-14 S/U, 11-12 ATS). There was a time when playing at the PIT was the pits for visitors. Not quite so anymore, as New Mexico has seen losses at home this year to Tennessee Tech, New Mexico State, Arizona and recently, Boise State. The Lobos are just 7-6 in conference play with five left in the season. Utah State has won four of its last five conference games. The Aggies are coming off a nice home win over Boise State, 71-65 as a three-point dog. New Mexico is a 5-point chalk here tonight, but my numbers have Utah State favored in recent play and almost even for the year. I'll take the points with Utah State.

No doubt both of these clubs will be in the NCAA tourney, but today I like the points with Virginia Tech as Duke returns from a three-game road trip. Play Virginia Tech.

Big ACC matchup here today between Virginia (23-2 S/U and 16-5 ATS) and Miami Florida (18-6 S/U, 9-10 ATS). Virginia is the top ranked team in the nation heading into tonight's contest, despite losing to Virginia Tech 60-61 in OT last Saturday. The Cavaliers haven't had it easy of late, with three of their last five games decided by four points or less. The Cavs are always at the top of the country in points allowed, so look for a low scoring game here today. Virginia is just 1-7 on the road at Miami. Miami knows how to play the upset role, last beating a No. 1 team in 2013 when they hosted Duke. I like the points here today. Take Miami.
|02-13-18||Kansas v. Iowa State +7||Top||83-77||Win||100||8 h 58 m||Show|

North Carolina is 19-7 S/U on the year and 14-10 ATS. The Tar Heels are 8-5 in ACC play and 6-6-1 ATS. The line is a bit out of control right now at NCU -10.5 points. My number has the Tar Heels closer to six or seven points. The Irish should also be well rested for this contest, having played just two times in the last week and neither game very taxing. Irish also have revenge for a home loss they should have won against this NCU team. I'm taking the points here with Notre Dame.

The Wildcats have not been good at covering, going just 1-5 ATS in their last six and 2-8 ATS their last 10. My numbers have these teams very evenly matched. I like the way USC covers the spread, unlike Arizona. I'll take the points here with the dog. Take USC.

The Wolverines have lost just one home game this entire season, that coming on Jan 9th to Purdue, 69-70.

Early Sunday action finds George Washington (9-11 S/U, 6-10 ATS) playing at St Bonaventure (13-6 S/U, 7-9 ATS). GW is just 2-5 in Atlantic 10 Conference play. The club has also been terrible at covering spreads, going just 1-5 ATS their last six. Moreover, on the road they are just 2-7 ATS. St Bonny's has struggled in conference play too, going 3-4 S/U and 2-5 ATS. However, those three conference wins all came at home and their four losses on the road. Bonny's laying 12 here on Sunday, by my number has them even higher at 15, 18 and 15. Take the home team here with St Bonaventure.
|01-27-18||Stanford +6.5 v. UCLA||73-89||Loss||-109||13 h 26 m||Show|
PAC 12 action here as Stanford (11-10 S/U and ATS) plays at UCLA (14-7 S/U and 9-12 ATS). Stanford had been 5-1 in conference play before losing it's last two games. The Cardinal still are a great covering team though, going 7-1 ATS in conference. UCLA is only 5-4 in conference and 5-4 ATS. The Bruins have lost three of their last four games both S/U and ATS. WHen a team has a winning record like UCLA but losing against the number, it tells me the oddsmaker over compensates for them. I think UCLA is one of those teams people like to play and they are paying for it. Play Stanford.

New Mexico also is 10-11 S/U, but a bit better vs the number at 10-8 ATS. There is one big reason I like the Lobos here tonight, they are at home.

However, ASU has not covered spreads, going 0-5 in their last five games. The Sun Devils are coming off a home loss to Utah in OT, 77-80 as eight- point favorites. Getting double digits with Colorado tonight too much to pass on considering ASU can't covers spreads these days. Take Colorado.

Big 12 Conference play as TCU (16-5 S/U, 10-9 ATS) plays at Vanderbilt (7-13 S/U, 3-13 ATS). TCU has struggled in conference play, going just 3-5 S/U. That should change today against a very poor Vandy club. Vandy is 2-6 S/U and 3-5 ATS in conference play. The Commodores have covered just three games all season and two of those have come in their last two games. TCU laying just four here on the road, my numbers have them at least a seven point favorite. Play TCU.

Buffalo (15-5, 11-5 ATS, plays at Ohio U (9-10 S/U, 5-7 ATS) tonight in a MAC contest. Buffalo has been great, going a perfect 7-0 S/U and 6-0-1 ATS in conference play.

The Grizzlies are perfect in conference play with a 7-0 record both S/U and against the spread. In fact, Montana has covered it's last 12 games. That's amazing considering that the oddsmaker usually corrects for those streaks. Montana is a team that can blow out this Southern Utah club very easily and that's just what I look for tonight. Play Montana.
|01-25-18||South Florida v. Tulane -13||80-75||Loss||-105||7 h 27 m||Show|

Air Force opened conference play with four straight losses, but have rebounded with two wins on the road at San Jose and at Colorado. The Falcons have been very good vs the number, covering their last five games. Utah State looks to snap their four game losing streak tonight. They are coming off a home loss to Wyoming, 77-85. In addition, the Aggies have covered just one of their last four games. My recent form number actually has Air Force the favorite here and with a 9-point line on Utah State, I like Air Force here to cover.

The Tigers are coming off a road loss to Vandy, 71-77. They also lost back-to-back home games to Alabama and Georgia (both as the favorite).

|01-23-18||Missouri State v. Bradley -1||52-72||Win||100||7 h 0 m||Show|
Missouri Valley showdown here as Missouri State takes on Bradley. I'm looking at the under here tonight between these clubs. Missouri State has been playing solid defense, allowing just two of their last nine opponents to score more than 64 points. Of those nine, five of those scored in the 50's and Mo State was 1-8 O/U. Bradley has not been a big scoring team, 8th in the conference among 10 teams. Bradley has been a great under team, evidenced by their 4-17 O/U record their last 21 games and 3-8 O/U record their last 11 home games. I like this game to go UNDER tonight.
|01-23-18||Clemson v. Virginia -9.5||36-61||Win||100||6 h 0 m||Show|
My top play this year in the ACC goes tonight as Clemson (16-3 S/U, 10-6 ATS) takes on Virginia (18-1 O/U, 12-4 ATS). Both these teams having excellent seasons. Clemson started conference play with three wins, but has gone just 2-2 since. The Tigers record not so good vs the number, covering just two of their last six games and 3-5 overall on the road. Virginia has lost just one game this season, that coming at West Virginia back in early December. Since that loss, the Cavs have gone 10-0 including a perfect 7-0 in ACC play. The Cavs have also covered five of their last six games. I like the Cavaliers a lot here tonight. This team is at home where they have had little problems and Clemson has struggled recently in conference. Play Virginia.
|01-22-18||Kansas State +5.5 v. Baylor||90-83||Win||100||9 h 16 m||Show|
Big 12 action tonight has Kansas State (14-5 S/U, 7-9 ATS) at Baylor (12-7 S/U, 7-5 ATS). The Wildcats are just 3-3 in conference play, though they have won two straight with wins over TCU and Oklahoma. In addition, they have covered four straight games. The Bears have struggled, losing three of their last four in conference and winning just two of seven. Oddsmaker has installed the Bears as 5 point favorites here and it's up to 5.5. My number has them at three, but my recent numbers favor Kansas State. In addition, the road team has covered the last five in this series. Play Kansas State tonight.
|01-22-18||North Carolina v. Virginia Tech +4||69-80||Win||100||7 h 15 m||Show|
ACC conference play tonight has North Carolina (16-4 S/U, 11-7 ATS) playing at Virginia Tech (13-6 S/U, 8-7 ATS). The Tar Heels opened conference play losing two of their first three games, but have won four straight since then. They have covered just four of their nine road games though. Virginia Tech is just 2-4 in conference play. The Tar Heels have won seven straight in this series, but have covered just twice. Last season, NCU won this game 75-70, but failed to cover the double-digit line. The Hokies have done well at home, going 24-10-1 ATS in their last 35. I look for Tech to give North Carolina all it can handle here tonight on its home court.
