College Basketball Betting Free Play: Northwestern Wildcats at Michigan State Spartans

Northwestern at Michigan State -14 O/U 119.5
Recommendation: Under


Thanks to a big push towards the over I see no reason not to play Northwestern under the total...again. In listening to Chris Collins, it is clear the Wildcats have zero depth and as a result must slow down the pace of the game and focus nearly all of their attention on playing defense and keeping the game close. Offensively, Northwestern has topped a point per possession once in Big Ten play whereas they've failed to top 0.90 in 8 out of 11 games. On the road against arguably the best defense in the league, it'll be a struggle to top 50 points. Michigan State meanwhile has had its issues offensively due to injuries. Tom Izzo noted that the team's desire to push the pace has been hampered because of not being able to play with the ideal personnel. The first meeting featured 94 points and 54 possessions. Even with drastic improvement on a number of fronts, topping 120 will be Read more

Syracuse at Pittsburgh -2.5 O/U 125
Recommendation: Under


I don't think there is any debate that tonight's Syracuse-Pitt game is going to be slow. In ACC play, the Orange are averaging an incredibly low 55 possessions per game while Pitt isn't exactly pushing the tempo either at just over 61. In the first meeting, even with both squads scoring a point per possession and attempting 41 free throws, the game produced only 113 points. Typically when you get one "extreme" in the first meeting (slow pace, low scoring) teams make adjustments and the opposite takes place in the rematch. I'm not sure we see that tonight as both teams indicated it was likely to be another bloodbath. Obviously with a total this low crazy things can happen late to bust a play on the under. But I don't project more than 60 possessions and in this type of atmosphere, buckets will be at an absolute premium.

Nebraska at Northwestern -2.5 O/U 119.5
Recommendation: Under


It’s Saturday and that means another opportunity to bet Northwestern under the total. And the bonus is it got played up off of the opener of 117 to 119.5 which to me is crazy. Yes, we aren't getting the value of two weeks ago but based on the projected pace of this game, it'll take quit an effort by both squads – and some help from the refs and perhaps an overtime or two – to top 120 points. We know the Wildcats are super-slow and have played pretty good defense. And let's not forget; Northwestern is an amazing 5-5 in conference play so I doubt they would make dramatic changes mid-season. As for Nebraska, head coach Tim Miles seems to fully understand what is going to take place, "It’s going to be a slow game on Saturday,” Miles said. Well said, Tim. The Cornhuskers don't really have much of an identity – sometimes they play fast, other times they look to Read more

Murray State at Belmont -6.5 O/U 147.5
Recommendation: Over


I've watched Murray State play on a couple of occasions this season and came away impressed with how aggressive they are offensively. Not only do they push the pace but they put five players on the court that can score a number of ways. The Racers have four guards who shoot between 34 and 41 percent from three and forwards Jarvis Williams and Jonathan Fairell combine to hit over 60% from the floor. Nine games in the OVC season, and Murray is averaging an incredibly efficient 1.16 points per possession. Tonight's opponent, Belmont, scores at an identical clip, and like Murray, the Bruins will look to push the pace as well. Defensively, Belmont and Murray both allowed less than a point per possession last season but have taken a step back. The Bruins allow 1.07 ppp and while Murray ranks at the top of the OVC at 0.99, I don't expect they'll match that number on the road against arguably the best Read more

Northwestern at Minnesota -10.5 O/U 124.5
Recommendation: Under


There are three very strong aspects of Northwestern basketball right now that have them trending under the total. For starters, they've succeeded in playing at a slow pace and shortening the game – a logical choice for a squad that is outmanned talent-wise nearly each and every night. Second is the Wildcats can't shoot. Last time out vs. Wisconsin, NW shot 50% from 2, 44% from 3, and 75% from the FT line – a near perfect performance by their standards that netted them a modest 65 points. Even with that showing, NW checks in at 0.84 ppp – a historical bad rate. Lastly, the Wildcats play sound team defense holding five of their last six foes to 40% or less effective FG%. Minnesota wants to push the pace but finding it difficult in the Big Ten (8th, 65.2 possessions per game). And Andre Hollins, the team’s top offensive option, it out with an ankle injury. I keep waiting Read more

UCLA at Utah +2
Recommendation: Utah


It's always a tough spot for PAC-12 teams to play at Colorado and Utah on a Thursday-Saturday swing. Not only are you forced to face two quality teams but the home courts are fairly strong and the elevation can wear on you late in games. We saw both Oregon schools lose and fail to cover earlier this season; Oregon at Colorado and Oregon State at Utah in the second of back-to-backs. I expect that to be the case with UCLA as they head to Salt Lake City to take on the Utes.

UCLA played very well on Thursday, controlling Colorado throughout for a 69-56 win. It was the Buffs' first game without Spencer Dinwiddie and while his absence hurt, the Bruins earned that victory. But this is a very young squad and unlike Colorado, Utah's confidence, particularly on offense, is brimming following Thursday's 84-66 win over USC.

The home court at the Huntsman Center is real and so are the Utes whose three PAC-12 losses were by three points or less. Unlike Colorado, Utah will be able to keep pace with UCLA's offense and at home they have the capabilities of coming up with stops down the stretch. Quintessential Read more

Bradley at Northern Iowa -12
Recommendation: Northern Iowa


I don't like laying double-digits in a conference game any more than the next bettor but until Bradley can turn things around, the fade train rolls on. The Braves went 0-for-December both straight up and against the spread. And the competition was comprised of nothing but fellow mid-majors. Offensively, the Braves struggle to score (0.96 ppp), can't shoot from the outside (28.1% 3-pt.), and are turnover prone (20.2%). Last season, Bradley won one conference road game against bottom feeder Southern Illinois. Their losses were by margins of 15, 31 (Northern Iowa), 10, 34, 17, 20, 11, 8, and 13 (Northern Iowa). Northern Iowa has played a very tough schedule against the likes of Maryland, Iowa State, VCU, and Virginia. The Panthers took their lumps but it was great prep for Missouri Valley play. Of late, we've seen NIU score wins-by-margin at home against VCU and Iona. I'm not going to overthink this one: Bradley has been outmanned and outplayed for much of the season and this is one of their toughest opponents/venues. Chalk time.

Cal State Fullerton at UNLV -13
Recommendation: UNLV


The schedule has been favorable but I've really been impressed with UNLV's play of late. Defensively, the Rebels are extremely talented with the ability to apply pressure and contest shots from all over the court. Their style essentially limits the opposition to one means of scoring and that's the two-point shot as UNLV defends the three extremely well (25.3%) and doesn't foul (15% of opp. points from FTs). Against lower-tier competition, the Rebels have posted wins of 19, 22, 19, 32, 21, and 16. And tonight's opponent Cal State Fullerton isn't far removed from that group of foes. The Titans don't have much of a resume with losses to Seattle (twice), San Jose State (by 22), and College of Charleston (by 13). When asked to step up in class, CSF was handled by USC (76-62) and Marquette (86-66). Fullerton did fall to Miami by two at home but the Hurricanes are a shell of their former selves. On the court, CSF is going to have a difficult time with UNLV's front court as the Titans don't have much of any size. Defensively, the Rebels have a massive edge and if they can continue to knock down outside Read more

Southern Utah at San Diego -21.5
Recommendation: San Diego


Southern Utah is arguably the worst DI team in the country. Their losses this year have come by margins of 33, 28, 15 (vs. Riverside at home), 29, 22, and 37. There was some decent competition is that bunch but there was also Northridge and Portland – two teams not that far removed from tonight's opponent San Diego. The Toreros have had a tough schedule of late with competitive losses to New Mexico, San Diego State, and UC Santa Barbara. A quick glance at USD’s resume suggests it isn't capable of laying this type of price with non-blowout wins over Grand Canyon, Morgan State, Greensboro and Southern Illinois. They did however wax Northern Kentucky on the road and trust me when I say all of those aforementioned teams are significantly stronger than Southern Utah. There aren't many of them but the Thunderbirds are a squad that you simply bet against every opportunity in non-conference play. Once Big Sky play starts, you'll see them compete in a handful of contests but tonight there's a class difference and the home squad can name the score.

Nebraska-Omaha at Minnesota -15.5 O/U 156
Recommendation: See write-up


I'm expecting an up-tempo affair tonight with Nebraska-Omaha heading to Minnesota. Omaha is one of the country's fastest teams at nearly 75 possessions per game. And not only do they play fast, but they are also efficient (1.06 ppp, 51.3 effective FG%, 76.5 FT%). On the flip side, they don't play much in the way of defense as Iowa, Drake, Bakersfield and Nevada all topped the 80-point mark. Minnesota first-year head coach Richard Pitino wants to play up-tempo basketball but due to their opponents (a handful of moderately paced teams) and the Gophers' personnel, it had yet to really play out. But there have been signs. Coastal Carolina, who can’t score like UNO, prefers to run and played to 71 possessions (154 points) vs. Minnesota. UM's game against Arkansas produced 160 points and 72 possessions. This game marks a perfect storm of sorts for Minny's offense to unload: at home, vs. a team that likes to run and doesn't play much defense. One thing I've noticed with playing games over that are projected to be up-tempo is that the first half tends to have a nice flow whereas the Read more
