College Basketball Handicapping: Arizona seeks revenge vs. California

California at Arizona -13 O/U 133

Tonight marks the rematch between California and Arizona – the Bears handed the Wildcats their first loss of the season a few weeks back in Berkley. In that game, Arizona's Brandon Ashley (2 points, 2 minutes) hurt his ankle and hasn't played since. Cal has been very competitive in the series (5-5 last 10, never losing by more than 10 points.


“Obviously, they’re the first team to beat us this year, so there’s a little more excitement,” Johnson said. “I felt like the way they beat us, we weren’t full-handed. We didn’t have time to adjust to Brandon’s injury. Now it’s a little bit different. We can game plan and in the last week or so we’ve started to feel comfortable on offense.”

“Losing Ashley in the middle of a game probably put them in a position where they had to play people in combinations they weren’t used to,”

Youngstown State at Cleveland State -7

If you are going to tonight's Youngstown State-Cleveland State game and sitting within spitting distance of the CSU bench, bring hand sanitizer. Four players are currently questionable with the flu. The Vikings opened -10 but have been bet down to -7.5. Note that CSU's bench plays only 27% of the team's minutes (252nd nationally).

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Missouri Tigers at Georgia Bulldogs

Missouri at Georgia
Recommendation: 1st half UNDER


Despite all the crap basketball in the SEC, Missouri finds itself with the worst defensive efficiency mark in the league (1.10 points per possession allowed). Following Saturday's loss to Alabama in which the Tigers coughed up 80 points, Frank Haith called out his team for a lack of effort. According to reports, they appear committed to turning things around: “They played harder than us down there, so I think that was the main thing,” Brown said. “There’s always going to be X’s and O’s, but I think effort is the main part of defense.” I'm not expecting a massive turnaround but a little effort coupled with Georgia's slow pace and offensive struggles gives us a nice betting opportunity. Out of the Bulldogs' last five games, the highest point total was 130. And in the first meeting in Columbia, the score was 56-56 at the end of regulation. I'll call for Missouri to come out with a lot of defensive intensity early on and will make a play on the first half under.

College Basketball Gambling: Florida says better defense on tap vs. Vanderbilt

Florida -8 at Vanderbilt O/U 123.5

After allowing 70 points in regulation for the first time in SEC play, the Florida Gators are hell-bent on a better defensive showing tonight against Vanderbilt. Note that in Florida's 75-71 win over Ole Miss the pace was once again slow (63 possessions). The Gators have been able to control tempo for much of the season with 57-64 possessions in their last 12 games.


"We're not a great defensive team now,” Yeguete said. “I think our help defense is not as good. We've done a better job in the second half than the first half, especially (Saturday) on (Ole Miss guard) Marshall Henderson.

“I think we just have to make an extra effort how we talked about. I think we can do a better job doing that in the next few games."

College Basketball Handicapping: Minnesota off best practice of the year

Iowa -2 at Minnesota O/U 145.5

According to Minnesota head coach Richard Pitino, his Golden Gophers had their best practice of the season "by far" following an 18-point loss at Ohio State. Let's hope some of practice was dedicated to putting the ball in the bucket (49.7 ppg last three games).


"DeAndre Mathieu went down with cramps during practice and he could easily have been done for the rest of practice," Pitino said. "It was almost like we were in the Maui Classic. The trainers was on him and he was dying to get back in. Just like the cameras were on him. He was fighting to get back in. Elliott Eliason got elbowed in the nose, I don't know by who, but blood is gushing from him ... He was like hurry up, get me ready to go. So that was really exciting to see."

- Kansas is 5-0-1 ATS in its last six games as a double-digit favorite. The Jayhawks, who are favored by 11.5 tonight at home vs. Oklahoma, can clinch at least a share of their 10th consecutive Big 12 regular-season title with a win over the Sooners.

- Oklahoma owns a 7-3-1 spread record in 11 games as an underdog this season. The Sooners have only lost by a double-digit margin once all year in an 87-76 defeat to Michigan St. at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

--The 'over' is on an 8-3 run for KU.

- Although OU has seen the 'over' go 14-10 overall, the 'under' is 5-2 in its road assignments.

- Maryland has played improved basketball of late and been tough at home. The Terrapins have won seven of their last eight home games, going 5-2 ATS in the seven lined contests. They catch Syracuse tonight on a quick turnaround in College Park as short home underdogs. Mark Turgeon's team hasn't played since last Tuesday's home win over Wake Forest, so the spot certainly sets up well for the Terps.

- Oklahoma State ended its seven-game losing streak and 0-8 ATS slide with Saturday's clubbing of Texas Tech. The Cowboys can't afford a loss tonight as Read more

College Basketball Betting: Nebraska Cornhuskers making money for their backers

Nebraska improved to 16-10 overall and 8-6 in Big Ten play with Sunday’s 76-57 win over Purdue as a five-point home favorite. Terran Petteway continued his stellar play by dropping 29 points on the Boilermakers. The win was the fifth straight for the Cornhuskers both straight up and against the spread. They have now won 12 of their 13 home games while going 11-2 ATS.

Tim Miles’ team remains perfect in single-digit chalk situations. With Sunday’s cover, Nebraska is now 9-0 in such spots. The Cornhuskers have covered the number at an 11-1 ATS clip in their last 12 games. Nebraska wasn’t even in the bubble conversation until it went into Breslin Center two Sundays ago and left East Lansing with a 60-51 triumph as a 14-point underdog. It hooked up money-line supporters with a payout in the +850 range (paid $850 on $100 wagers).

With a pair of blowout wins over Penn State and Purdue added to its resume, Nebraska’s profile is on the rise (currently #46 in RPI Rankings). It has only one home loss that came in a 71-70 decision to Michigan back on Jan. 8. Nebraska has a 6-7 record against the RPI Top 100 and only three of its defeats came at Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Samford Bulldogs at The Citadel Bulldogs

Samford -4.5 at The Citadel
Recommendation: Samford


The Citadel has been ridiculously bad this season and is currently in the midst of a 10-game span where they have not come within five points of their opponents. Overall, the average loss during this stretch has been 14.8 ppg with eight being by nine or more. While Citadel is locked into the #11 spot in the upcoming Southern Conference Tournament, Samford has an opportunity to gain the #6 spot with a strong close to the regular season. Samford owns the tiebreaker against NC-Greensboro by virtue of their 88-78 win back on Jan 23. The #6 seed becomes important because it faces the league’s worst team (#11 seed) in the first round which will be this Citadel team.

The likely #10 seed is Furman which Samford struggled with twice this year so earning the #6 figures to make a difference for them. The nine days off for Samford heading into this contest could benefit them as well in the form of fresh legs at a time of year (just 3-4 games left) where teams are somewhat fatigued. Fundamentally, each of these teams is smallish and has defensive troubles but the gaping difference between them is Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Off back-to-back losses, Syracuse travels to Maryland

Syracuse -4 at Maryland O/U 131.5

After reeling off 25 in a row, including five ACC games by five points or less, Syracuse enters tonight's game at Maryland having dropped back-to-back games. Of course everyone is now eager to call out Syracuse's flaws even though they were clear as day during the streak. As for the Terps (15-12, 7-7), they've had nearly a week to prepare for this one and desperately need to close out the season strong (home games vs. Syracuse, Virginia Tech, and Virginia). UM's top win this season came at home against Florida State. They don't have another win vs. Ken Pom's top 50.


“I think they’re coming with a lot of vengeance,” guard Nick Faust said. “They know we can possibly get the victory just because of the type of team we are. They’re definitely going to come with a full head of steam,

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Who Has What It Takes to Win the Big Dance Part I

History shows us many things about what it takes to be a champion. I write this article every year, and every year except for one, I have been able to identify the eventual NCAA National Champion among my elite level teams.

Last year was no exception. Here’s what I wrote about Louisville in my ‘Who Has What It Takes’ article from 2013: “The Cardinals have star power, depth, experience and talent. They rebound, play defense and win games consistently away from home. Rick Pitino’s squad meets all the criteria that has been effective at predicting past championship. Plain and simple, Louisville has what it takes to win it all.” Louisville, of course, was the last team standing in the 68 team field last year, winning the national championship over Michigan.

Past predictions do not necessarily indicate future success, but I’ll stand by my track record in this article. Remember, as always, this gets written before the regular season is over, before the conference tournaments, before the seedings are announced and before a single tournament game has been played.

I’ve nailed the winner of the NCAA tournament four Read more
