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.

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.

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|

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.

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|

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.

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.

The Red Storm had lost 11 straight conference games before their modest win streak. This includes a home loss to this Depaul team back in early January, 74-91. 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.

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.

Arizona also comes into today with a two game losing streak after their home loss to UCLA, 74-82. 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 Cougars have been horrible on the road, going 0-7 ATS in their last seven games and 0-5 in their last conference road games. Oregon State should have an excellent chance here tonight to snap its four game losing streak. The Beavers have been decent at home, covering three of their last five. Pretty big number here for the Beavers to cover tonight, but against this Cougars team, should be no problem. Play Oregon State.

Montana is 18-5 on the season and a very nice 15-5 ATS. The Grizzlies are unbeaten in conference, with a perfect 11-0 Record. They are also impressive vs the number, with a 9-1-1 ATS mark. In fact, the Grizzlies have yet to fail to cover on their home court this year. Portland State might also be without one of its leading scorers tonight in guard Deontae North, who is facing a possible suspension. With or without North, I like Montana in a big win here tonight.

Not a lot of spreads posted on these clubs, but Bucknell has more at 3-2 ATS on the season, They are 2-1ATS in conference and have just one loss against 11 wins overall. Bucknell has had little trouble in the conference, even on the road where they have won their conference road games by 12, 20, 8, 12, 5 and 17. All but one above today's 7.5-point posted number. Lehigh hasn't fared so well in conference, going just 5-7 on the season. These clubs met back in early January with Bucknell winning on their home court, 78-65. Bucknell is just the much better team here and I don't mind laying this price on the road.
|02-03-18||Pacific -5 v. Pepperdine||81-72||Win||100||11 h 1 m||Show|
West Coast conference matchup here tonight late as Pacific (11-13 S/U, 12-9 ATS) takes on Pepperdine (4-19 S/U, 6-16). Pepperdine definitely the worst in this conference having won just four times on the season and and once in conference. That lone win came at home over Loyola Marymount, 71-70. The team is also doing terribly against the spread, covering just one time in their last nine attempts. Meanwhile, Pacific has covered eight of their last 10 with a push. Pacific the much better team here and with four days off before Gonzaga I don't see any look ahead. Play Pacific.

After a excellent non-conference schedule that saw the club lose just one game, they are 5-5 in conference play and losers of three straight. In addition, they are 0-3 ATS their last three and 2-5 ATS their last seven. West Virginia is a eight point favorite here today, but I have them a favorite over West Virginia, at least in recent form (last eight games). I like the points here against a struggling West Virginia team. Play Kansas State.

This team has to be tired, they have played just one home game in their last six games. That takes a toll on any team. Michigan has been fair in conference play, going 6-3 S/U and 6-2-1 ATS. The Wolverines have lost just one home game this entire season, that coming on Jan 9th to Purdue, 69-70. Michigan laying double digits here on Saturday should be no trouble for this Wolverine team against a road weary Gopher squad. Take Michigan.

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.

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'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.

The line has dropped to nine on ETS here tonight, but my recent for number has them at 13. I like the home squad a lot here tonight. Play East Tennessee State.
|01-23-18||Texas A&M -1.5 v. LSU||65-77||Loss||-113||8 h 59 m||Show|
SEC play tonight finds Texas A&M (13-6 S/U, 7-9 ATS) playing at LSU (11-7 S/U, 7-6 ATS). A&M started conference play horribly, losing its first five games. However, the Aggies have bounced back with two straight wins. LSU has been more the opposite, starting 2-1 in conference and since then losing three straight both S/U and ATS. 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). The Aggies have had recent luck playing LSU, covering six of the last eight meetings. I'm taking Texas A&M here tonight.
|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.
|01-20-18||Gonzaga -21 v. Santa Clara||75-60||Loss||-105||18 h 42 m||Show|
Bailout Blowout Game of the Week: Lots of teams pad their non-conference schedule with puffcakes to get those wins. Not this Gonzaga team. The Bulldogs played one of the more ambitious non-conference schedules in the county. That makes them doubly tough as they enter conference play. The Zags were a perfect 6-0 in West Coast play until they lost last time out at home to their rivals, St Marys, 71-74. Meanwhile, Santa Clara had a big upset win at San Francisco last game, 65-62. The win improved the club to 4-2 in conference play, though the cover was just their third in their last 11 games. Santa Clara showed some spunk in that road win, however they will face an upset Gonzaga team looking to atone for their home loss last game. Take Gonzaga here in a Bailout Blowout win.
|01-20-18||Wright State -3 v. Wisc-Milwaukee||Top||61-66||Loss||-108||18 h 42 m||Show|
Horizon League Game of the year: Wright State has been red-hot, winning eight straight games and going a perfect 7-0 in conference play. In addition, Wright has covered four of its last five games and is 9-4 ATS on the road this season. Wisconsin Milwaukee will try and snap a four-game losing streak today. The club has also been horrible against the number, going 0-4 ATS their last four and 2-11 ATS their last 13. Two of my numbers have Wright a huge favorite here, we're talking 17 points and 13 points. The oddsmaker has Wright just three points and that means a huge difference in my favor. This is a big play for me today on Wright State.
|01-20-18||UNLV v. Colorado State +3.5||79-74||Loss||-109||15 h 52 m||Show|
I think there is great disappointment in Vegas about this UNLV team. 2nd year HC Menzies had that initial year out of the way and brought in some of the best recruits in the country. Their top recruit for this year is Brandon McCoy a 6-foot-11 forward from San Diego. McCoy hasn't disappointed though as he has really shined in his freshman year. Still, after a promising 11-2 start to the season the club has gone just 2-3 since losing its last three home games. In fact, UNLV is 0-8 ATS their last eight games. Colorado State is 2-3 ATS in the Mountain west conference. The Rams have covered four of their last six games though. CSU always seems to give UNLV fits on their home court. I'll take the points here with CSU in what could easily be another straight up win against the Rebels. Play Colorado State.
|01-20-18||LSU v. Vanderbilt||71-77||Loss||-105||11 h 40 m||Show|
SEC action has LSU (11-6 S/U, 7-5 ATS) playing at Vanderbilt (6-12 S/U 1-13 ATS). LSU has lost two straight games in conference after winning two of three. The Tigers look to bounce back here against one of the worst teams in the conference. Vandy is 1-5 in conference both S/U and ATS. There aren't many teams that have this bad of a spread record as the Commodores have just one cover on the entire season against 13 losses. Moreover, that one cover came on the road. At home they are 0-8 ATS. My numbers are the deciding factors for me and all my number point to LSU anywhere from a 3-point favorite up to a 17 point favorite. That's a large swing, but that shows just how bad this Vanderbilt team is. I'm taking LSU and rating them my Inner Circle play on Saturday.
|01-20-18||Ohio State -9 v. Minnesota||67-49||Win||100||10 h 30 m||Show|
Big 10 action today has Ohio State (16-4 S/U, 10-7 ATS) playing Minnesota (14-7 S/U, 8-11 ATS) at Madison Square Garden. The Buckeys look like one of the teams to beat in the Big 10. They are 5-0 both S/U and ATS in conference play and have won 11 of their last 13 games. The Gophers have struggled in conference play, going just 2-4 so far. In addition, they have covered just 1 of their last five games and 3 of their last 12 overall. When I look at my own power ratings and thus my own lines, this is one of the biggest differentials of the day. Ohio State's recent form has them over 20 point favorite by my recent form numbers. I can't ignore my own numbers, especially in recent form. I'm taking Ohio State here from Madison Square Garden.
|01-18-18||UCLA v. Oregon State +1||63-69||Win||100||10 h 17 m||Show|
More PAC-12 action finds UCLA (13-2 S/U, 8-10 ATS) playing at Oregon State (10-7 S/U, 7-10 ATS). UCLA is 4-2 in conference play, coming off a loss at home to Colorado, 59-68. The Bruins have split their road games against the number, going 3-3 ATS. Oregon State is 2-3 in conference play, coming off a pair of losses at Arizona State and Arizona. A very competitive PAC-12 means looking for those spots where we can grab a win. Surprisingly, the two recent road losses were Oregon State's two of three true road games this season. Oregon State has covered three straight games and four of the last five. UCLA is an opponent that Oregon State can handle and I look for a Beavers' cover tonight. Play Oregon State.
|01-18-18||Washington v. Utah -7||62-70||Win||100||9 h 7 m||Show|
PAC 12 Action tonight has Washington (12-5 S/U, 7-9 ATS) playing at Utah (10-7 S/U, 7-8 ATS). Washington is 3-2 in conference play, coming off a loss at home to Stanford, 64-73. The Huskies had a long stretch this year where they didn't cover, going 1-7 over eight games. Lately they are 3-2 ATS. Utah started conference play with a pair of wins, however since they they are 0-4 both S/U and ATS. It's been tough though, playing against both Arizona and Arizona State, then losing on the road to UCLA and USC. Even with their recent losses, this is the kind of game the Utes can win, on their home court against mediocre PAC-12 opponent. Play Utah.
|01-18-18||Washington State v. Colorado -8||73-82||Win||100||7 h 16 m||Show|
Big PAC-12 game here tonight as Washington State (9-8 S/U, 9-7 ATS) plays at Colorado (11-7 S/U, 8-9 ATS). Washington State got its first win in conference play last game out, beat Cal, 78-52. That makes the Huskies 1-4 S/U both ATS their last five games. Colorado lost both its opening games of conference play, but is 3-1 since. The Buffaloes have wins at home over Arizona State 90-81 and over Arizona, 80-77. The Buffs have covered three of their last four games. Colorado laying seven tonight, with my recent form having the Buffs as 17 point favorites. I like Colorado at home tonight in a big win.
|01-17-18||CS-Fullerton +5.5 v. UC-Santa Barbara||64-83||Loss||-104||10 h 31 m||Show|
Two of the better Big West teams matchup tonight in Santa Barbara. Cal Fullerton (11-5 S/U, 9-3 ATS) has won four straight game and is perfect in conference play. In addition, they have been really good to bettors, covering three straight and seven of their last eight games. Santa Barbara has struggled in conference play, going just 1-2 S/U in conference play. Santa Barbara is a 5.5 point home favorite here. My recent form number has Fullerton about a 2-point favorite here tonight. I'm taking Fullerton.
|01-17-18||Air Force v. Colorado State -7.5||76-71||Loss||-106||9 h 31 m||Show|
Mountain West play tonight has Air Force (7-10 S/U, 7-4 ATS) playing against their intra-city rivals, Colorado State (10-9 S/U, 6-9 ATS). Not a lot of home court favor here as both teams are from Colorado Springs. The Falcons finally won their first conference game last time out with a win over San Jose State, 78-71. That makes them 1-4 in conference play. Colorado State has won two straight games in conference after losing a pair. The Rams have also covered four of their last five games. Line here tonight has CSU at 8-points. My numbers have the Rams at about 10, but more recent form has them around 15. I'm taking Colorado State here tonight.
|01-17-18||Dayton v. St. Joe's||65-81||Loss||-110||6 h 1 m||Show|
Atlantic 10 conference play today has Dayton (9-8 S/U, 8-9 ATS) playing at St Joe's (7-9 S/U, 6-8 ATS). Dayton lost its opener in conference play and has since won three of four. The Flyers are off a big win over VCU, 106-79. They have also covered three of the last four games. St Joe's is 2-3 in conference play after losing two straight games. St Joe's is also just 2-3 AST in their last five games. This is game is basically a pick'em line, but my own numbers favor Dayton, especially in recent form where they really stand out. Take Dayton.
|01-16-18||Drake +6.5 v. Northern Iowa||54-68||Loss||-105||7 h 43 m||Show|
Missouri Valley Conference play here tonight has Drake (11-8 S/U, 10-5 ATS) playing at Northern Iowa (9-9 S/U, 5-8 ATS). Drake has won five of its six conference games thus far, with its only loss coming at Valparaiso. They have also covered five of those six games. Northern Iowa finally snapped its seven game losing streak with a home win over Valparaiso last time out. That win was also the team's first in conference play against five losses. My recent power numbers have Drake as a favorite, yet the oddsmakers have them as a 6.5 chalk. I'm taking Drake plus the points here tonight.
|01-16-18||Toledo +1.5 v. Ohio||91-57||Win||100||6 h 44 m||Show|
MAC Action tonight has Toledo (11-6 S/U, 7-7 ATS) playing at Ohio U (8-8 S/U, 4-5 ATS). Toledo is 3-1 in the MAC thus far with their lone loss at Buffalo, 94-104. The club has covered two straight games and four of the last six. Meanwhile, Ohio is 1-3 in conference play and 1-2-1 ATS. The Bobcats are a one-point favorite here tonight. My numbers have Toledo a nice sized favorite in recent play. My trendfactor number also has Toledo the favorite here. I'm taking the visitor in Toledo.
|01-16-18||Cincinnati v. UCF +8||49-38||Loss||-107||6 h 43 m||Show|
American Athletic conference play here tonight has Cincinnati (15-2 S/U, 8-6 ATS) playing at Central Florida (12-5 S/U, 9-3 ATS). Cincy is a perfect 4-0 in conference play as they head to Florida today. Covering has been so-so, as they are just 3-2 ATS their last five. Central Florida is coming off a loss at U Conn, 53-62. It was the team's second loss in conference against three wins. UCF has been a very good covering team though, going 7-1 their last eight games. Tough to pass on the points here at home with a better than average Central club. I'm taking UCF here tonight.
|01-15-18||Illinois v. Nebraska -4.5||63-64||Loss||-110||8 h 28 m||Show|
Big 10 action today has Illinois (10-8 S/U, 6-7 ATS) playing at Nebraska (12-7 S/U, 11-5 ATS). Illinois has struggled, losing three straight and their first three conference games. The Illini is coming off a home loss to Iowa, 97-104 in OT. Nebraska has lost two of its last three games, but covered all three. In fact, Nebraska has been a great covering team of late.

|01-15-18||Minnesota v. Penn State -7.5||95-84||Loss||-109||6 h 9 m||Show|
A pair of 13-6 Big 10 clubs matchup here on Monday as Minnesota plays Penn State. Minnesota won its conference opener against Illinois. However, they have lost three straight Big 10 games since including a drubbing on their home court last game to Purdue, 47-81. Penn State is 2-2 in Big 10 play, winning its two home games and losing two on the road. They beat Northwestern and Nebraska at home. Penn State should have little trouble on its home court with Minnesota. Play Penn State.
|01-14-18||Monmouth v. Canisius -3.5||Top||79-94||Win||100||4 h 2 m||Show|
Metro Atlantic Athletic Association matchup here today has 5-11 Monmouth playing at 10-8 Canisius. The home club has been perfect on their own floor, covering all six games this season. In addition, Canisius has a 6-1 record in their last seven games and is 4-1 in conference play. Can't say the same about the visitor who is just 1-3 in conference and 2-7 in their last nine games. More bad news for Monmouth is that they will be shorthanded today as guard Micah Seaborn (ankle) is doubtful. Seaborn has averaged 14.42 ppg this season and will be missed on a team that does not score a lot of points. I look for Canisius to win this one going away. I'm very surprised at seeing just a four-point line on Canisius playing a 5-11 club without it's starting guard. Play Canisius.
