College Basketball Betting Free Play: UCLA Bruins at Utah Utes

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

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Bradley Braves at Northern Iowa Panthers

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.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Cal State Fullerton Titans at UNLV Rebels

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

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Southern Utah Thunderbirds at San Diego Toreros

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.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks at Minnesota Golden Gophers

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

Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh (at MSG)
Recommendation: Cincinnati +3 1st half


It is common knowledge that when Cincinnati plays a comparable foe, the Bearcats are going to struggle to put the ball in the basket. But over the last two games, things have gone from not-so-good to historically bad. Against New Mexico and Xavier, the Bearcats shot 23-of-73...from 2-point range! And going up against Pittsburgh is far from an ideal situation for a dramatic turnaround. But while I'm well aware that points will likely be at a premium, what I do expect to improve is Cinci's effort. Every quote you read following last Saturday's loss to rival Xavier wasn’t so much on the score but the lack of fight – which under Mick Cronin is rarely an issue.

“It’s inexcusable,” said Cronin, who’s now 3-5 vs. Xavier. “We’re not tough enough on the defensive end. We’re not tough enough to get the ball to the open man when teams are doing whatever they’re doing defensively to us. Really, anything that involves toughness right now is a real big problem for our team.”

Dartmouth at Fort Wayne -6.5
Recommendation: Fort Wayne


Following Illinois' 57-55 win over Fort Wayne, head coach John Groce had nothing but praise for the Mastodons.

“I saw that over the past two days (of watching film),” Groce explained. “I thought ‘Oh boy, these guys are a team.’ They really gel well together at both ends of the floor.”

“They were really physical,” Groce said. “They beat us to loose balls. They played really, really well.”

IPFW should have won the game had it not been for a 2-of-13 effort from the free throw line.

This showing however wasn't an isolated incident as IPFW lost on a buzzer-beater three at Dayton to start the year – and we know the Flyers are a quality basketball team.

But as with a lot of mid-major teams, getting up for the big boys isn't hard, it's staying focused against comparable competition – hence why IPFW has losses at Texas A&M Corpus Christi and Miami-Ohio. The loss to Miami last time out was a home run spot for the RedHawks though IPFW had a 16 point second half lead Read more

Boston College +4 at Purdue O/U 151.5
Recommendation: Boston College


Purdue hasn't done much of anything this year to be deserving of this price range for tonight's game against Boston College. The Boilermakers struggled against the likes of Northern Kentucky, Rider, Siena (twice), and also lost outright by 15 points to a bottom-tier Washington State squad. Head coach Matt Painter on his team's struggles: “I’ve never, as an assistant or a head coach, been with a team that can show such promise in one half and the other half lose their focus or not make winning basketball plays, not tough it out on a certain possession,” to this extent, Painter said. “It’s a hard thing, and it’s a positive that you show that you can be successful, but it’s also a negative in terms of when things don’t go your way, you’re not able to right the ship. You have to show more consistency.”

The reason for the inconsistency as well as last year's sub .500 finish is easy to pinpoint – Painter just doesn't have the talent he's accustoming to working with in West Lafayette.

Baylor -3 vs. Dayton O/U 145.5
Recommendation: Over


Have you seen the rims at the Maui Invitational? I lost track of home many extra points they were worth to today's Arkansas-Minnesota game. Offhand I saw two threes that on any other rims in the country would have careened out of bounds and yet they went in. Then you throw in the fact that teams are playing in a back-to-back situation – tired, loose with the ball, poor rotations, missed box outs, etc. Add in the extra fouls and these games have been a perfect storm for OVERS. Of course it helps when you have two teams willing to push the pace. Baylor has actually played at a rather average pace thus far but last night we saw the Bears ramp it up to 74 possessions in their 93-77 win over Chaminade. Dayton has gone over 70 possessions in all but one game. And the Flyers scored 80+ against Georgia Tech and Gonzaga. We've seen a few teams in this tournament go zone with the hopes of staying out of foul trouble and we could see that tonight. But note that both squads are shooting above 40% from three-point range. A lo of factors favor points and even with some line adjustment, it won't keep me from Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Oklahoma State Cowboys at USF Bulls

Oklahoma State -9.5 at South Florida O/U 150.5
Recommendation: Under


You rarely see South Florida get baited into an up-tempo game. Under Stan Heath, the Bulls have been one of slowest teams in the country on a yearly basis. This is by design as Heath's inability recruit offensive talent leaves USF needing to grind it out, play defense, and hope for the best against superior foes.  It looks like guard Corey Allen (16.5 ppg) could be a nice addition – and by nice addition I mean someone who can actually shoot above 45% from the floor. But even with the rule changes (and move to AAC) USF will still struggle to score on most nights.

Oklahoma State isn't shy about pushing the pace but they aren't BYU. And unlike the Cougars, the Cowboys do play defense – you'll likely see them in the top 10 in efficiency for much of the season. OSU has named the score in its first four games but I don't expect things to run as smoothly on the road against a team that will defend.

It is hard to put any stock in last year's results just because the game is being played so differently. However, when these two teams hooked up in Stillwater, Read more
