|01-20-19||Clippers v. Spurs UNDER 222.5||103-95||Win||100||10 h 32 m||Show|
The Clippers are currently in disarray, and are having problems at both ends of the court, as is evident by 5 straight losses, and are now going to play todays games without forward Danilo Gallinari (back) and guard Lou Williams (Hamstring). With the Clippers offence not clicking on all cylinders of late, and injuries slowing them, Im betting a more concerted defensive effort will be on tonights agenda vs a San Antonio Spurs side, that has gone under in 7 of their L/9 at home as favorites with the combined average score of 209.4 ppg scored.
Under is 5-1 in Spurs last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
Under is 5-0 in Clippers last 5 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points.Under is 7-1 in Clippers last 8 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.Under is 6-1 in Clippers last 7 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.Under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 road games.Under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.Under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 games following a straight up loss.Under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 games following a ATS loss.Under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.
|01-20-19||Missouri State +4.5 v. Drake||63-74||Loss||-110||7 h 26 m||Show|
The Missouri State Bears have won their last two MVC road games with recent wins at Indiana State & Bradley and are more than capable of hanging tough here and getting us the cover. Missouri State also has revenge on board for a pair of losses to Drake last season, by 61-58 and 76-73 scores. Note: The Blackies are 8-2 SU vs the Bulldogs with revenge and get my backing here today.
HC Ford of Missouri State is 14-2 ATS in road games in January games in all games he has coached in his career.

|01-19-19||Cavs +17.5 v. Nuggets||102-124||Loss||-101||11 h 35 m||Show|
Oh boy how far the Cavs have fallen since the departure of their superstar LeBron James. Just take a look this line, and you will see their down quite a bit in the eyes of the public and lines makers. But pros don't like to be embarrassed, and now the NBA has embraced and accepted betting lines, you can bet that all the Cavs are aware of how thye are being perched tonight in the Mile High City and will be out to prove their detractors wrong and at least be competitive. I know the Cavs took it on the chin last night in Utah by a 115-99 count, but their well conditioned and young enough to push tonight and get us the cover on a slightly bloated line.
Denver exploded on the ChicagoBulls last time out after being humbled by the Warriors in their previous game, but now after back to back all out efforts could be an a natural letdown spot here.The Nuggets are 0-12 ATS at home after they shot 50% or better from beyond the arc and are 6-6 SU in those games with non coming by more than 7 points.
DENVER is 0-7 ATS after scoring 120 points or more this season.
NBA Favorites of 10 or more points (DENVER) - excellent offensive team (102 PPG or better ) against a sub par defensive team (102 PPG or more) after 42+ games, after a blowout win by 20 points or more are 23-51 ATS L/22 seasons for a go against 69% conversion rate for bettors.

|01-19-19||Oregon +4 v. Arizona State||64-78||Loss||-115||5 h 10 m||Show|
ASU (12-5, 3-2 in Pac-12 play)shooting woes make them lousy favs here . On the season ASU is hitting just .439 from the field and .342 from 3-point range but an nasty .654 from the line. Even though Oregon is missing banged up with some injuries their key starter sophomore F Kenny Wooten is healthy again making them dangerous underdogs here tonight .
ARIZONA ST is 1-11 ATS versus good shooting teams - making 45% or better of their shots after 15+ games over the last 2 seasons is 0-6 ATS versus good defensive teams - shooting pct defense of 42% or less after 15+ games over the last 2 seasons.

|01-19-19||Celtics v. Hawks +9||113-105||Win||100||8 h 43 m||Show|
Atlanta is up trending in my power rankings and are 7-7 SU in their L/14 games and deserve my respect here in this spot vs Boston on their own home court. The market thanks to the public money has pushed this line up giving me an edge here with the home dog Hawks. I know the Celtics have beat up on these kids in DD wins so far this season, but Atlanta as mentioned above is playing much better hoops of late and improving . Meanwhile, Boston is off playing last night vs Memphis in a hard fought home win and on tired legs. This situation is a good omen for us here behind the young legs of a Hawks group that is 4-0 ATS as dogs against unrested opposition this campaignvand that are 3-0-1 ATS at home when playing with 3 or more days of rest. It must be noted that the Celtics are just 0-6 ATS and 1-5 SU as road favs without rest.
Stevens is 2-15 ATS versus terrible defensive teams - allowing 110+ points/game - 2nd half of the season as the coach of BOSTON.BOSTON is 1-8 ATS (-7.8 Units) when playing their 3rd game in 4 days this season.

|01-19-19||Pennsylvania +7 v. Temple||77-70||Win||100||8 h 2 m||Show|
Temple has won 11 straight meetings in this series, but in recent battles here on the road Penn State has been very competitive and covered 7 of their L/9 visits. I know the Quakers have looked wobbly of late, without injured G Ryan Betley who is out for season, and are on on a 4 game losing streak, but now in desperation mode, will be ready to leave everything on the floor today. Note: PENNSYLVANIA is 21-8 ATS after 4 or more consecutive losses since 1997. You have to remember this is a PennState team that upended Villanova this season, and are not completely futile or without talent.
TEMPLE is 0-6 ATS as a home favorite of 6.5 to 12 points over the last 2 seasons.

|01-19-19||Kentucky +5 v. Auburn||82-80||Win||100||7 h 46 m||Show|
There was a key number that I was looking for in this Kentucky vs Auburn battle, and now that I have it will recommend we pull the trigger.
Saturday's matchup between No. 12/14 Kentucky and No. 14/12 Auburn will mark the eighth time in the series' history the teams will meet while both are ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 and the first since No. 24 Auburn took on No. 4 Kentucky on Jan. 22, 2003.
Kentucky owns a 92-19 all-time record in the series, including a 30-15 advantage when the game is played in Auburn. UK also has a lead in the series during the seven prior meetings when the teams were both ranked with a 6-1 edge.
John Calipari and Bruce Pearl have matched up head-to-head with ranked squads on four occasions, splitting the meetings 2-2. Calipari is 9-5 all-time against Pearl.
Auburn beat Kentucky last season and now we have revenge on board for Calipari in company.
This game will feature an Auburn side that likes to smack down 3s and take an average of 35 a game, and HC Calipari despite of seeing his team struggle against treys will have his athletic side ready to respond here today. Note: Wildcats have held their last two opponent to 50 points or less , and are extremely capable of keeping this game close and even pulling off the upset vs the public favourite.
Auburn is proving susceptible to fouls and giving up offensive rebounds, Im betting the charity stripe and the Cats determination under the basket will be a deciding factor in which side covers today.

|01-19-19||Louisiana Tech v. Charlotte OVER 129.5||40-55||Loss||-110||5 h 6 m||Show|
Both these teams play defence first basketball, but according to my numbers the Total is off by close to 5 points on the low side as the linebackers over adjust according to public perceptions and trends. My Totals data suggests this tilt should be closer to 134 to 135. Thus giving us value according to my projections.
Konkol in his L/18 when playing their 2nd road game in 3 days as the coach of LOUISIANA TECH has seen combined average of 146 ppg scored.LOUISIANA TECH in their L/9 after 3 or more consecutive unders over the last 2 seasons have seen a combined average score of 140.9 ppg scored.
CHARLOTTE in their L/45 games when playing only their 2nd game in a week over the last 3 seasons have seen a combined average of 149.4 ppg scored.
CBB teams where the total is between 120 and 129.5 points (CHARLOTTE) - in a game involving two love average defensive teams (67-74 PPG) after 15+ games, after scoring 65 points or less 2 straight games are 58-25 L/5 seasons for a 70% conversion rate for bettors.
|01-19-19||Thunder v. 76ers -1.5||117-115||Loss||-112||4 h 16 m||Show|
Oklahoma City played a hard fought tilt last time out, and than lost in OT by 10 points to the Lakers , which is a huge drain on a team both emotionally and physically. Now travelling from West to East going against a Philadelphia team that is starting to uptrend both from a talent and maturity level, and that plays their best hoops at home Im betting the Thunder will be on the wrong end of this score when the final buzzer goes off. Note: OKLAHOMA CITY is 1-10 ATS off an upset loss by 10 points or more as a favorite over the last 2 seasons.
Even if J Embild does not play today for the 76ers Im betting they find a way to win.
NBA Home favorites vs. the money line (PHILADELPHIA) - hot shooting team - 2 straight games making 50% or more of their shots against opponent after 2 straight games - allowing a shooting pct. of 50% or higher are 59-9 L/22 seasons for a 87% conversion rate for bettors.

|01-19-19||Northern Illinois +3 v. Kent State||68-78||Loss||-108||4 h 3 m||Show|
Even though this game is being played at Kent State I have this tilt projected as a pickem, making N.Illinois a value selection here according to my estimates. NIU has revenge on board for a 61-59 loss in last years tourney to Kent State and are a experienced team with 5 returning starters that can get things done . Northern Illinois has covered 6 of the L/7 meetings and gets the nod again.
Note: Kent State picked up a big win last time out as home pups , but in the past KENT ST is just 6-16 ATS in home games off an upset win as an underdog and are 0-10 ATS at home when coming off a Straight up underdog win and facing opposition coming off a SU/ATS loss..
N ILLINOIS is 8-1 ATS in a road game where the total is 145 to 149.5 over the last 3 seasons.

|01-19-19||Kansas v. West Virginia +5.5||64-65||Win||100||6 h 51 m||Show|
Both these programs are down a notch this season, with West Virginia getting the most trash talk from the pundits. If anyone thinks that West Virginia's proud hoops program will now roll over and die, because of a bad start might be in for a surprise especially opposing betting detractors as HC Huggy Bear is 6-0 ATS L/6 at home as a dog. What Im betting here to happen in Morgantown is that the Mounties will have plenty of fight left in them vs a Kansas program that has not faired well here in the recent past as is evident by a their 1-5 ATS mark here in their L/6 visits.
KANSAS is 2-11 ATS after having won 12 or more of their last 15 games over the last 2 seasons.W VIRGINIA is 13-3 ATS in home games after 3 or more consecutive overs since 1997. W VIRGINIA is 15-6 ATS in home games after a game where they failed to cover the spread over the last 3 seasons.

|01-19-19||Pittsburgh +7.5 v. Syracuse||63-74||Loss||-109||6 h 37 m||Show|
Talk about a huge letdown situation as Syracuse comes home off a huge win vs Duke last time out on the road. Wow. But hey you have to remember that Duke was off a thrilling tight win vs Florida State previous to that and were flat for that affair vs the Orange in their followup. Now The Panthers who are starting to play much better go against another emotionally drained team, and could easily spring a ugly upset here, much like Syracuse did to Duke. This Pittsburgh program has also been a cash ATS for their backers going 22-8 ATS in the series, including 5-0 ATS as dogs of 6 or more points and really must not be underestimated in this situational play. Remember the Orange are far from infallible at home as was the case when they lost outright to Georgia Tech as 8.5 point home chalk already this season.

|01-18-19||Warriors v. Clippers +7||112-94||Loss||-110||16 h 13 m||Show|
Golden State is playing some top tier basketball at the moment , but their hosts the LAClippers have proven themselves to be very competitive group vs strong units, and are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600 with the underdog recording a 4-0 ATS record in the last 4 meetings. Earlier this season, the Warriors beat the Clippers by a 129-127 count at home, and now with revenge on board, are ready to spring an upset and be very competitive again.
NBA Home teams vs. the money line (LA CLIPPERS) - revenging a same season loss vs opponent, off an upset loss by 15 points or more as a home favorite are 25-5 SU L/5 seasons for a 83% conversion rare for bettors.

Portland comes in off an easy 129-112 home victory over Cleveland and I am betting they will be much fresher than a Pelicans team playing their 4th consecutive road game on what will be a 5 game west coast road trip and also off a hard fought emotional back and forth loss to the Golden State Warriors last time out. With Portland playing at home where they have won 19 of 26 games this season, they have an edge. Note: New Orleans has lost 18 of 24 road games this season and are 4-13 ATS off a road loss this season and 2-11 ATS after playing two consecutive road game this season.

|01-18-19||Warriors v. Clippers OVER 241||112-94||Loss||-104||13 h 50 m||Show|
This is a very high total, but for good reason, as these teams have a history of run and gun affairs with their L/9 games going over the set total with the most recent meeting seeing 256 combined points going on the board. The Warriors are currently on a 6 game win streak and have not scored less than 119 points in any of the six victories on their winning run and are averaging 133.8 points over that stretch with the three pointers reigning down by the bucket converting 18.6 treys per game during their current blitz . Im betting they come out running and gunning again, and for the Clippers to have no choice but to open up as well, in what will be another big time scoring fest.
Warriors have gone over in 6 of their L/7 Dickson games . Clips: 4-0 O/U in their 4th straight home game / 9-1 OVER L10 as div dogs and have gone 6 of 7 times at home vs .600 or better opposition. LA CLIPPERS are 11-1 OVER in home games when playing against a team with a winning record this season

|01-18-19||Nets v. Magic +1||117-115||Loss||-105||11 h 15 m||Show|
These teams are operating at the proverbial opposite end of the performance spectrum. With Brooklyn winning 15 of 20 while Orlando has lost 15 of their L/20. However, Orlando after losing a 120-115 overtime road loss against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday a game that that were leading late, are in desperation mode, and feeling a little humiliated which Im betting makes them dangerous in this spot. Meanwhile, the Nets exerted alot of energy last time out making big time comebacks in regulation and then eventually in overtime Wednesday to record a surprising 145-142 road victory over a top tier Houston Rocket side and could now easily be in an emotional letdown situation, making the home team a viable underdog here.
The Magic have won 16 of their past 21 home games against the Nets.
Magic are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games.Magic are 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. NBA Atlantic.Magic are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

|01-18-19||St. Joe's v. St. Louis UNDER 134.5||57-68||Win||100||9 h 51 m||Show|
St.Louis plays a methodical conservative type of hoops especially at home , where they are 8-1 UNDER as a home favorite or pick this season with a combined average score of 129.4 ppg and is 6-0 UNDER in home games after playing a game as favorite this season, with a combined average of just 122.8 ppg scored. When St.Louis played St.Jospehs last season both games were well below this set total with 119 and 121 points outputs and Im betting on a similar outcome here tonight.
Note: St.Jospehs offensive flow in transition is being tested in a big way as injuries to Pierfrancesco Oliva and Lamarr Kimble test the team in a big way . Defence becomes highly important if the Hawks want to be competitive here which adds credence to this being a lower scoring game between jesuit rivals.
Saint Louis is 17th in the NCAA in adjusted defensive efficiency at kenpom. The Billikens lead the A-10 in scoring defense, yielding 62.5 ppg.
CBB Road teams where the total is between 130 and 139.5 points (ST JOSEPHS) - after being beaten by the spread by 54 or more points total in their last ten games, a marginal losing team (40% to 49%) playing a winning team are 24-4 UNDER L/22 seasons for a 86% conversion rate for bettors with the average combined score clicking in at 126 ppg.
|01-17-19||CS Sacramento +2.5 v. Northern Arizona||66-64||Win||100||12 h 16 m||Show|
My own head to head power rankings makes Sacramento State a possible SU upset underdog here at N.Arizona in this big Sky Conference tilt.
Sacramento State are off a heart breaking 72-70 home loss to Idaho State on Saturday, and are now desperate for a win. Sacramento State (6-7, 0-4) are the lone team in the Big Sky without a conference win, but are better than their record indicates as the Hornets could just as easily be 3-1 in league play, but thanks to their conditioning and concentration deficiencies the Hornets have had trouble in the later stages of the second half in three of their conference losses. Note: Sacramento State had a 63-58 lead slip away with 2:30 remaining vs. Northern Colorado, trailed just, 69-67, with 4:00 left at Montana State, and held a 64-62 lead with 2:38 left this past Saturday vs. Idaho State. Bad Breaks, also played a part, and like all good ad bad runs must come to end eventually which Im betting will be the case again tonight .
Last season, in these teams' only meeting, Sacramento State held a nine-point halftime lead in Flagstaff before NAU outscored the Hornets by a 40-26 margin on the way to a 58-53 Lumberjack victory. The Hornets missed each of their last five FG attempts, and did not score during the final 2:18, and watched NAU close the last minute on a 6-0 run. Just a couple breaks here tonight for the bad news Hornets and they will take home a desperately needed victory and more importantly a cover for us .
• Sacramento State had been 6-2 prior to the current five-game losing streak, so their not completely futile, and have the edge on this line .Sacramento State's four conference losses have come against four of the top five teams in the Big Sky standings.
HC Katz is 15-6 ATS in road games versus teams who make 8 or more 3 point shots/game on the season after 15+ games as the coach of SACRAMENTO ST.

FROM A MATCHUP PERSPECTIVE Belmont according to my power rankings should be -2 favs here on the road vs this top tier Jacksonville State hoops program and are the superior team. The last time these teams met last season the Bruins were embarrassed at home by a 83-73 count and now HC Byrd will have team ready for some payback.

My Totals estimates for this game are closer to 142.5 to143 this according to those projections give us value with an over wager . Arkansas State plays a much more wide open style of hoops then Texas Arlington scoring average 75.2 ppg on offence and have allowed north of 83 ppg in 10 road games . Arlington when pushed can light up the board and had 82 points vs App State recently and Im betting they will be pushed tonight and will do significant offensive damage in a tit that Im betting eclipses this Total.

|01-17-19||76ers v. Pacers -3||120-96||Loss||-106||12 h 40 m||Show|
The Sixers are a upper echelon NBA team that still has some growing up to do, as their young roster still has not found a way to harness or sustain their energy levels.The Sixers despite of being ultra talented are inconsistent especially on the road where they find themselves tonight in Indiana to play the Pacers. Their futility when it comes to their betting backers bankrolls has been significantly effected as is evident by their sub .500 away record of 10-12 SU and 8-14 ATS. The Sixers also make a habit of following up explosive performances, like the one they had last time out vs Minnesota ( 149-107)with average at best outputs as is evident by the following trends...PHILADELPHIA is 0-7 ATS in road games after a win by 10 points or more this season and is 2-10 ATS in road games after 1 or more consecutive wins this season and is 4-12 ATS after scoring 120 points or more this season. Tonight against a equally talented Pacers squad, Im betting their in trouble. Note: The 76ers are just 1-5 ATS vs .600 or better opposition on the road this season. With that said, Im recommending we take Indiana to cover as short home chalk.
INDIANA is 33-16 ATS versus good shooting teams - making 46% or better of their shots over the last 2 seasons.INDIANA is 39-26 ATS as a favorite over the last 2 seasons.

Working that hard and exerting that much energy especially in the thin air of the Mile High City , and then hopping on a flight home, will Im betting see the champs exhausted and running on fumes as this game against the visiting Pelicans progresses .With that said, look for a offensively capable New Orleans squad to come out here and actually give the dubs a run for their money in Oakland tonight.
The Warriors are 1-6 ATS L/7 at home with no rest and are 0-4 ATS when coming off a revenge tilt which they had last night vs the Nuggets for a previous loss.

The Bulldogs are looking for their second MVC win of the season while the Bradley Braves are winless to date in league action. The Bulldogs have won two of the last three meetings between the two teams and are hungry to get back into the win column after a road loss at UNI. With that look for Drake a good ball moving team and an explosive down town shooting side, that averages 79.2 points per game this season, the highest mark in the Valley and 63rd nationally to be dangerous underdogs vs a struggling side.
BRADLEY is 1-8 ATS versus good passing teams, averaging 16 or more assists/game over the last 3 seasons.

Evansville is a tough team that plays hard and will not be easily intimidated even though this a transition season, not even here on the road vs very good Missouri State team . It must also be noted that the Purple Aces have only lost one of their L/9 by more than this point spread. They did lose last time out, in a letdown situation after upsetting league leaders Loyola Chicago in a previous game, but this team has shown resilience especially for their betting backers off of defeat as HC McCarty is 7-0 ATS after 1 or more consecutive losses as the coach of EVANSVILLE.
MISSOURI ST is 4-15 ATS in home games against conference opponents over the last 3 seasons.

|01-16-19||Magic +3.5 v. Pistons||115-120||Loss||-105||13 h 54 m||Show|
The Magic are playing well as is evident by back to back wins vs top tier opponents the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets. After those victories Orlando is brimming with confidence, something the group from Motown is not exhibiting . The Pistons have lost 15 of their L/19 overall and even when they work hard are losing, and now in a state of despair they are fade material.
Tonight despite of going against a lower tier Magic team their problems wont be easily taken care of, as the Magic sport a 7-1 ATS mark here on this floor while the Pistons, are 1-11 home vs .500 or less non-div conference opposition.
DETROIT is 9-21 ATS in home games after having lost 5 or 6 of their last 7 games over the last 3 seasons.

|01-16-19||Iowa +1.5 v. Penn State||89-82||Win||100||9 h 10 m||Show|
Iowa enters this game against Penn State on a 3 game win streak, and Im betting it reaches four after tonight. Whats makes Iowa a up trending team on my power rankings is their ability to play a much better bran of defence than in the past as is evident by at he Hawkeyes 80th overall rankings in the nation in adjusted defensive efficiency, according to KenPom. That’s up significantly fro their 242nd ranking last season. Tonight I look for their defence to be the difference maker vs a Penn State side that is struggling to score points. The Nittany Lions are the only team to average fewer than 60 points in conference play, and they shot only 36.7 percent from the field in a 71-56 loss against No. 6 Michigan State on Sunday. It must also be noted that visiting Hawkeyes have had this tilt circled on their calendars since the two losses they suffered in this series last season and will be primed for payback. Note: Iowa is 6-1 SU L/7 with revenge in this series.Penn State is 0-4 SU/ATS in conference play this season. I know Iowa's leading scorer Tyler Cook might not play tonight because of some nagging injuries, but they got the job done without him vs Northwestern while showing their residence, and tonight they have the guns to get things done again.

|01-15-19||Bulls v. Lakers OVER 215||100-107||Loss||-109||13 h 21 m||Show|
Chicago under their new interim head coach Jim Boylen originally wanted to implement a defence first system, but that plan looks like it has gone out the window as the Bulls are taking part in run and gun games on a consistent basis of late, with their L/5 going over the total, with a combined average of 231 ppg going on the board. Meanwhile, LAL since James went down with an injury has consistently struggled to score, and are averaging 99.2 ppg in tier L/5 to the hardwood. With the Lakers desperately trying to get their offence untracked, Im betting they will be more aggressive tonight vs a side that has allowed more than 123 ppg in their L/5 trips to the hardwood.The combination of the Bulls lack of D, and the Lakers need to up the ante on offence Im expecting a fairly high scoring affair that goes over the set total.
NBA road teams where the total is greater than or equal to 210 (CHICAGO) - a good offensive team (98-102 PPG) against a below average defensive team (102 or PPG), after scoring 100 points or more 3 straight games are 30-7 OVER L/5 seasons for a 81% conversion rate for bettors with a combined average of 225.2 ppg going on the board.

The Nuggets have been playing at a high level lately, especially at home, where they are 18-3 SU and have won their last 12, while the visiting defending champs Golden State have been playing very inconsistent basketball despite of being healthy and from a betting perspective are just 4-11 ATS L/15 overall and not as ferocious as they once were. The last time these teams played here the Nuggets triumphed and Im betting they get the cover here in this spot.
DENVER is 22-10 ATSwhen playing against a good team (Win Pct. 60% to 70%) over the last 3 seasons

Kermit Davis took over a Ole Miss hoops program in transition, but has surprised with his ability to get the most out of this group especially with what looks to be the best backcourt in the nation, with. Devontae Shuler, Terence Davis and Breein Tyree. Tonight however, despite of being undefeated in SEC play and at home this season, his Rebs will have his hands full, with a LSU Tigers side that has gotten progressively better after a eight-man rotation has been put in place. I have projected one possession game so we have value taking points here with the underdog.
CBB road team vs. the money line (LSU) - in a game involving two excellent free throw shooting teams (73% or better ), average ball handling team (14.5-17.5 TO) vs. a good ball handling team (14.5 TO or less ) after 15+ games have won 18 of the L/29 such matchups SU, for a 62% conversion rate for bettors with the average point differential clicking in at 3 points per game which gives us value on this line.

The Hawks are starting to play much better basketball of late winning 7 of their L/14 SU and have covered 10 of their L/18 overall and despite of losing by DDs, to a top tier Milwaukee side in their last home game were competitive in that tilt for 3 quarters. Note:
Hawks are 35-16 ATS in their last 51 games following a double-digit loss at home.Hawks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss.ATLANTA in their L/24 games after allowing 110 points or more 3 straight games over the last 2 seasons have seen a combined average point diff of 2.2 ppg.

Both these teams are methodical defence first teams, but according to my projections the number has been chiseled down by almost 5 points by the lines-makers in accordance with public perceptions . Im not betting that we wont see a physical grinding game, Im just estimating the combined score will eclipse this offer. Line value resides with an OVER wager.
St.Louis and their opponents in their 15 games this season have seen a combined average of 130.1 ppg scored. Fordham has seen a combined average of 131.6 ppg scored in their games this season.

No.3 Tennessee won the last meeting between the two programs (84-66 in last year’s SEC Tournament), and now Arkansas will have some payback in mind. It must be noted that Arkansas has won six of the last seven overall meeting in this series, including each of the last two meetings in Thompson-Boling Arena. From a historical perspective this line is bloated , Note: In the 36 encounters since 1991-92, the average margin of victory in the series is 8.6 points. In 25 of those 36 games, the game was decided by single digits, including 13 games where the margin was five points or less. History does have a way of repeating itself even though these tow teams talent levels and performance are on currently divergent paths. This season Arkansas is 10-5 with two of the losses coming in overtime and three times Arkansas had the ball with a chance to tie or wins. Arkansas’ five losses have been by 2, 1, 4, 6 and 6 points (3.8 average).Needless to say they are competitive and being slightly underrated here vs a public team. Im betting on them making a game of this , and more importantly getting us the cover a line that should be closer -11.5 according to my data.
CBB Road underdogs of 10 to 19.5 points (ARKANSAS) - off an upset loss to a conference rival as a favorite against opponent off a road win are 52-21 ATS L/5 seasons for a 71% conversion rate for bettors.

Im betting on a Kent State team that loss by a 91-65 score toEastern Michigan on the road last time out to be on the wrong end of the score again.

Now on tired legs they go go against the fastest pace team in the league the Sacramento Kings. Thats not a good situation for them here and Im betting the Blazers are fade material in this spot as they are just 1-7 SU L/8 after playing in the Rocky Mountains against the Nuggets.

Im not buying into the Jayhawks preseason hype that had them ranked No. 1 in the AP poll . I know Kansas has shown flashes of brilliance and are off a road win at Baylor last time out, but overall they still have showed me their weaknesses when they smoked by Iowa State a couple games back by a 77-60 count. I can't get that beatdown out of my head, and remember saying to my self wow has this program degenerated. Now enters a revenge minded Longhorns team fresh off a hard fought loss to 15-1 Texas Tech last time out, and brimming with confidence despite of losing .
The Horns lost to KU twice last season which is good news for their betting supporters as they are 9-3 ATS as dogs in double revenge mode and 9-2 overall with revenge overall.

MU has won four straight regular season games over Siena at the Times Union Center and and despite of this being 3rd game in 5 nights, are viable cover dogs in this road spot vs their hosts. Monmouth has covered 2 of their L/3 and have been competitive . Meanwhile, Siena off a rare win last time out have recent history of following up their victories with ATS clunkers as is evident by the following trends: Siena 1-8 ATS after a win by 6 points or less over the last 2 seasons and is 2-11 ATS after 1 or more consecutive wins over the last 2 seasons.

No matter what the public perception here, tor the final results we have an edge here with the pup.
Memphis will play its third true road game of the season and is in search of its first win in such contests with losses at LSU (Nov. 13) and Houston (Jan. 6). The Tigers are 1-5 in games played on a road or neutral court this season.

The Hawks deserve out respect here as they have proven their abilities recently against another top tier team by positing a dramatic 123-121 win over Philadelphia and have confidence heading into this tilt. Meanwhile, Hawks are explosive enough offensively to offer us plenty of value on this line either by being competitive from start to finish or getting us a back door cover.

Meanwhile, Niagara averages 78.3 ppg at home, while allowing 75.9 ppg in slightly elevated action. When these types of teams meet they usually feed off the others energy which Im this afternoon results in a fairly high scoring game that eclipses the total.

Purdue Fort Wayne is the Summit League's lone undefeated team in conference action at 4-0 while holding a 12-7 overall record, but all good and bad things must eventually come to an end , Im betting this streak does as well here at South Dakota vs a disciplined we'll coached Coyotes group that is committing just 11.7 turnovers per game which ranks them in the top 50 in the nation in that category.
I know the Coyotes have been suffering with injuries, and are a sub .500 team, but considering how well guys like sophomore Stanley Umude has played averaging 19 points and 7.4 rebounds per game over his last five games this team looks better than most might anticipate.
South Dakota has won the L/4 meetings in this series and gets the nod again here on their own home court.

No John Wall in the lineup no problem as Otto Porter Jr. has upped his game and really looks like the real deal, making the Wizards a under rated team, especially with Bradley Beal playing lights out some of the best hoops of career . With that said, Im betting on the Wizards 6-1 ATS L/7 to come out here looking to make a statement vs a talented Toronto team that they they have double revenge against vs two losses suffered earlier this season. With Toronto looking ahead to a matchup with Boston up next and not fully focused on a team that they have owned , I expect the Wizards to surprise the visitors here and more importantly get us the cover.

Today vs a methodical St.Peters team Im betting they continue to speed things up, which will force their opponent into a opening up a bit themselves. This Im betting results in a combined score that eclipses this beatable total.

Sacramento enters this game as one of the most explosive teams in the NBA and are averaging 13.1 seconds per possession - a pace that ranked second in the league after Thursday night's games. The Kings also were leading the NBA in fast-break points at 22.6 per game. That type of system matches up well visiting Charlotte a side that is struggling mightily having lost four of five games and seven of 10 and were smashed by DDs in their last trip to the floor. Note:
CHARLOTTE is 0-8 ATS after a blowout loss by 20 points or more over the last 2 seasons.

The Bulls are exhausted as they play their 3rd road game in 4 days, and must now deal with the thin air and altitude in Salt Lake City . The Bulls have had to deal with some explosive offensive teams of late, and have gotten out of a defence first system that has been implemented since Hoiberg was fired, and today on tired legs will have to revert back to being more conservative, which I'm betting results in a fairly low scoring affair. Note: Road teams where the total is 200 to 209.5 (CHICAGO) - after 4 or more consecutive overs against opponent after 1 or more consecutive unders are 39-13 UNDER L/5 seasons for a 75% conversion rate for bettors.

Tonight Im betting Cal Irvine get their revenge behind a 5 returning starters that have already earned a 12-4 record on the season and up trending in power rankings. Note: The Anteaters a re 5-1 -1 ATS L/6 here in this series and have cashed 3 straight SU/ATS with. a.500 or better record in conference revenge while on the road.

With that said, the Shockers are 8-0-1 ATS as dogs of more than 9 points under head coach Gregg Marshall and even though they are on a 3 game losing streak won't be be easily intimidated here , not even against a quality Cougar team.

LSU has come a long way in a short period of time and are now ranked as the AP’s preseason No. 23 team and despite a 11-3 record and 4-0 SU run Im betting will have their hands full with Arkansas here on the road. Its never easy to grab victories in the SEC in on the road, and the Tigers just don't have a record of success when traveling vs conference opposition as is evident by going just 3-19 SU in its last 22 SEC away games, which includes losing 7 straight as visitors. Add to that the Hogs have revenge on board for 2 losses in this series last season and you have a home team that will be hungry to take down the visitor here. It must be noted that the last seven times the Razorbacks have hosted the Bayou Bengals here Bud Walton Arena with revenge they have cashed 7 straight times ATS.
LSU is 4-13 ATS in road games versus teams who attempt 21 or more 3 point shots/game on the season over the last 3 seasons.

This is not a good matchup on paper but I expect Florida's physicality and defence to help them stand tall here and get us the cover vs a top tier Tennessee program. KenPom has the Gators’ defense ranked ninth nationally in adjusted defensive efficiency. The Gators are also ninth in Division I ball with only 60.7 points allowed per contest and have covered 3 straight at home.
CBB favorite (TENNESSEE) - after going over the total by more than 6 points in four consecutive games against opponent after going under the total by 42 or more points total in their last five games are 7-36 ATS L/22 seasons for a 84% conversion rate for bettors.

Texas Tech behind a potent D continues to pile up the wins and are now 14-1 SU on the season with their only loss to powerful Duke. However, from a bettors perspective not all is good with the Techies as they are a bankroll depleting 2-13 ATS L/15 when favored and are just 2-6 ATS L/8 on the road when laying points and overall are on a 1-7-1 ATS run. Texas at 10-5 may have not shown the same potency as their instate rivals, but Im betting they muster up a big effort here this Saturday afternoon vs an opponent that has not won in Austin in 23 years, 0-22 SU.
TEXAS is 27-13 ATS L/40 in home games vs. top caliber teams - outscoring their opponents by 12+ points/game after 15+ games and s 16-5 ATS as a home underdog of 3 points or less or pick.

Duke is a behemoth opponent and obviously the best in the country. However, because of this they have a huge target on their backs and must almost always play full out because of this. Thus they are not always as fresh as thye need to be because of their strength of schedules and are vulnerable to being upended by a very talented team like the Florida State Seminoles especially here on the road. Duke, will be playing in just its second true road game of the season in a very unfriendly environment. FSU is 13-2, ranked 13th nationally and last year made a run to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight – the same round in which Duke finished.The Seminoles went toe-to-toe with the Blue Devils in a 100-93 loss in Durham, N.C., last season, and blew Duke out, 93-78, when the two last met in Tallahassee in 2017 and wont be intimidated here in front of a boisterous crowd. Take the points.

This is where thye play their best hoops, and after their ugly clunker against Evansville last time out Im expecting a spirited effort vs Illinois State today and a cover. Note: In its last two meetings with Illinois State, Loyola has held the Redbirds to 55.0 ppg, 36.4 percent (44-for-121) from the field, and 30.9 percent (17-for-55) from long range.

Im going to brave here this week and take the points with Clemson.The Tigers lost to the No. 1 Duke Blue Devils in Durham, 87-68. They committed a lot of turnovers in that game, but are more than capable of hanging tough here with their ability to be physical under the glass. They were only rebounded, by Duke by a 40-36. Clemson is averaging 35.8 rebounds per game, while the Cavs snatch 34.7 per tilt. That Im betting will be huge for them here vs a Cavs side that lives in and dies in transition. When thye teams met in the play offs lat season on a neutral court Clemson lost 64-58 and when thye met in Clemson the season before Virginia eked out a 77-74 win and today Im betting the Tigers get us the cover .

The Houston Rockets had a huge 10 game winning streak snapped last time out vs the Milwaukee Bucks, but are still in top tier form, and hitting on all cylinders behind their star James Harden who is averaging 39.5 points per game, during a current 15-game span. Tonight I expect the Rockets to come out looking to bounce back and merciless fashion , and get revenge for a loss in their previous meeting with Cleveland by a 117-108 on Nov. 24. There will be no mercy rule implemented by the Rockets vs a Cavs team that ranks dead last in the league in efficiency, allowing 116.9 points per 100 possessions. The Cavs will have to muster up some offensive fireworks of their own vs the 26th ranked Defensive efficiency of the Rockets or be blown off the court in a game that I expect will surpass this number with ease. My projections estimate that the Rockets will score north of 116 here this evening, which is a very good omen for our chances, as the Rockets are 18-0 OVER when they score 112 or more points in a game this season with a combined average of 239.1 ppg scored.Over is 4-0-1 in Cavaliers last 5 overall.Over is 8-2 in Rockets last 10 vs. Eastern Conference.

NKU was second.NKU comes in 13-4 overall and 3-1 in Horizon League play, and WSU is 8-9, 2-2. It is a key early game for positioning in the league and Im betting it will be closely contested despite of what is a divergence in records but not head to head talent. In. physical game look for Loudon Love, a diverse skilled and bulky 6-foot-9, 280-pound sophomore center and a preseason first team all-Horizon selection, to key to Wright State covering here tonight.

Tonight against a run and gun opponent in Sacramento Im betting their going to get torched again, and will have no choice but to offer up some offensive fireworks of their own or be blown off the court.

The Celtics exploded for 135 points last night in a win vs the Indiana Pacers, and no I expect a reversion to the norm from a scoring output perspective , as they will be on tired legs after running gunning last night. I expect the Celtics to revert back to their usual conservative transitory system which has resulted in the 3rd best points per game defence in the league .Im also betting they stand tall, behind a fairly methodical 19th ranked pace. Meanwhile, Miami a defence first team with aggressive physical traits, owns the 6th best defensive points per game ranking behind a 22nd ranked pace and 25th ranked offense and should easily help contribute to a methodical clock burning snooze fest.

It must be noted Nevada got steamrolled by New Mexico 85-58 last time out, and will be very ready here to get back some lost respect and with that I expect they will mercilessly come at San Jose State and just keep pouring the points down, which will result in a much faster paced higher scoring game than the lines makers expect.

I know the Bulls have lost 4 straight but they have proven their competitive ability recently against top tier teams like Indiana and Toronto losing hard fought closely contested affairs by 3 and 6 points respectively, and have the ability to keep this game close as well and get us the cover via a physical defence that is improving significantly of late as is evident by holding 5 of their L/9 opponents under 96 points or less.Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games.Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

Vanderbilt according to my power rankings matches up well here in this SEC tilt, and while its never easy winning on the road in this conference very much have an edge and upset possibilities attached to them vs a Georgia team that was annihilated vs Tennessee last time out by a 96-50 count as 13.5 point dogs. It must be noted that Georgia's HC Crean is 0-7 ATS L/7 after trailing in their previous game by 20 or more points at the half in all games he has coached which was the case last time out. Hey folks I know this is a young Vanderbilt group, but they have a kid by the name of Shittu who was named the conference's Freshman of the Week who balances a team with alot of chemistry.

Oklahoma are off a hard fought win vs instate rivals Oklahoma State last time out and will now be in a letdown situation against a strong Texas Tech side, that has just one loss this season and that was to Duke in a game that they were very competitive. Texas Tech is a perfect 9-0 this season at home , but just 3-6 ATS thanks to bloated public trap lines associated with their top tier play. But today at around 6 points we have enough value to believe that the RedRaiders have a number that they can cover against. The Red Raiders and Sooners have split the last three seasons with the home team winning the last six matchups (rinse and repeat option is on board here).
Difference maker: Texas Tech’s defense is operating at an all time optimal historic level. It has an adjusted defensive efficiency of 83.5, which includes an astronomical field goal defense. Teams are averaging less 1 point per possession and only one opponent has surpassed 0.9 PPP.

Purdue's Carsen Edwards, who is leading the Big Ten in scoring at 25.5 points per game comes to town looking to help his Boilermakers upset Big 10 power house Michigan State tonight, and whether Purdue turns the trick or not Im betting there is value on this line with the visiting underdog. Note: MICHIGAN ST is 4-14 ATS L/18 off 2 straight wins against conference rivals over the last 3 seasons.
We all know physical Michigan State is , and how tough they are under the glass, and Purdue can't match that, but the Spartans have a tendency to run and gun with reckless abandon, and the Boilermakers are a team that can make them pay in transition. PURDUE is 10-2 ATS vs. dominant rebounding teams - outrebounding opponents by 7+ per game over the last 3 seasons.
injury update: Michigan State is going to play a third straight games without junior guard Joshua Langford due to an ankle injury . He is a big part of the Spartans' top tier junior class, as he averages 15 points per game and will be missed against this type of opponent.

With that said, Im betting Baylor a side that is holding opponents to 39.6 percent from the field, including 32 percent from 3-point range behind a 4 guard scheme and a complimentary bevy of big men will give the Cyclones fits here .

The Lakers like other teams Super Star LeBron James has been on in the recent past get used to him controlling their games, and when their super star quarter back is out, those teams tank. James has missed 21 games over the last few seasons , and when he's out they have proven to be bad bets going 3-18 SUATS . The Lakers proved this correct when they got completely steam rolled by Minnesota yesterday afternoon in a road game. Now on tired legs they go against a Dallas team that plays their best hoops at home, as is evident by a 15-3 record as hosts that has seen them win 13 of their last 14 here at American Airlines Center.

The Raptors looked very good and worked very hard in a win vs the Milwaukee Bucks last night on the road and notched a impressive win. However, after playing that kind of gruelling physical affair on the road and now on tired legs Im betting they will have a problem performing at an optimal level against vs the most under rated team in the NBA ( Indiana Pacers) according to my power rankings assessment charts. It must also be noted that Raptors Kawhi Leonard played 38 minutes last night, and after suffering through numerous injuries, in his career Im sure the coaching staff will be careful with his minutes tonight, and that also gives us an edge with the Pacers. In the most recent meeting in this series here in Toronto back on Dec 19 the Raps were fortunate to get the victory in a 99-96 smash mouth affair, and tonight look for the fresher legs of the visitor and their scorching defence ranked No.1 in points allowed to be the difference maker here. Also from a SRS head to head matchup scenario that tells us the Raptors are ranked 5th with a 4.80 numerical rating, and the Pacers 6th ranking 4.60 , we have a pickem situation, even with home court advantage thrown in. Add to that a fatigue factor ratio , and we have a upset situation edge. Nothings a sure bet , but I like the edge we have here getting points with this live dog.

Washington is just 4-17 SU on the road this season, dropping eight consecutive games away from Capital One Arena and while I rarely ever lay DDs with any team, the odd circumstance offers up value. With that said, this tilt here in Oklahoma City is one of them. The Wizards continued road futility, and a banged up lineup makes them fade material even on a DD line. Note: The visitors are playing without key cog John Wall ( out for season) arguably the teams best player and are also saddled with the absence of power forward Markieff Morris who is also out with an injury. Streaky super star Westbrook broke out with a 32 point performance last time out, and will be licking his chops with anticipation here .

Some of their problems come with their lack of being able to Draw foul as the Cyclones are a not a very physical team, ranking in the bottom half of the NCAA in offensive free-throw rate.

The loss was ISU's second-straight as it finished the non-conference season with a defeat to TCU and enter this game looking a little bit ragged.

|01-05-19||Oklahoma State +10 v. Oklahoma||64-74||Push||0||5 h 47 m||Show|
Oklahoma State has been struggling to this point in the season, while their long time rivals the Sooners are looking like a future tournament team. However, everything goes out the window when these two instate enemies meet and Im expecting the Cowboys to stand tall and get us the cover vs a Sooners side off their first loss in 8 games. that loss was a hard a hard fought physical affair vs Kansas last time out and could easily see this group in a letdown spot here.
This is the 237th Bedlam meeting, and the Cowboys have taken four of the last five, including the last two.
Note: With its win vs No. 19/21 LSU in November, Oklahoma State racked up its fifth victory over a ranked opponent in its last six opportunities. The Cowboys are one of just five teams in college basketball that can claim to have beaten five of their last six ranked opponents.
CBB road underdogs of 10 or more points (OKLAHOMA ST) - cold team - failing to cover 6 or 7 of their last 8 against the spread against opponent hot team - covering 8 or more of their last 10 against the spread are 62-30 ATS L/22 seasons for a 68% conversion rate for bettors.
