College Basketball Betting Free Play: UC Davis Aggies at Stanford Cardinal

UC Davis +8.5 at Stanford O/U 149.5
Recommendation: UC Davis


A lot of these secondary postseason tournaments come down to effort. Over the next two nights bettors will see a number of teams that simply go through the motions. Stanford was in position to get into the NCAA Tournament but lost four of five down the stretch. Per usual, head coach Johnny Dawkins is spewing a lot of coach-speak about being "excited" to play but I'm not buying it. This is UC Davis' first postseason appearance under head coach Jim Les. He's done one of the better coaching jobs in the country having taken the Aggies from 9-22 to 25-5 in just one season. Obviously a trip to the Big Dance would have been far more gratifying but to be playing just down the road against a PAC-12 team is likely to spur on a solid effort. Fundamentally, UC Davis can put the ball in the bucket and that's what you want to see with an underdog. They shoot a nation's-best 44.4% from three and have a top-tier player in Corey Hawkins. I watched UCD play at Washington State earlier this season. After a slow start, they played the Cougars fairly even and eventually lost by seven. They're capable Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: UConn Huskies vs. SMU Mustangs

UConn vs. SMU
Recommendation: SMU 1st half -1.5


If you look at the win probability chart on last night's AAC semifinal matchup between Tulsa and UConn, you'll notice is looks awful similar to that of a heartbeat. On multiple occasions, with less than 10 minutes to go, both teams had win probabilities of 90% or higher. The Huskies though prevailed and are a game away from slipping into the Big Dance. As for the Mustangs, even if they lose they are a lock to earn an at-large berth. But don't forget last year's snub job, something the team isn't leaving to chance. Fatigue is a real concern for UConn, especially Ryan Boatright who hasn't gone to the bench since their team's first round game. For much of this tournament, he's been the only UConn player who can score on his own. SMU's advantage in this one is offense. Cincinnati and Tulsa are no strangers to poor shooting. The Mustangs boast the best offense in the AAC (1.11 ppp) and showed as much when they hung 73 on the Huskies in a blowout win in Dallas back in February. Even with UConn playing well beyond their regular season stats, they can't win this game scoring 47 points like last night. After two Read more

Auburn vs. Kentucky -23.5 O/U 137
Recommendation: Over


It's unlikely you'll see 185 combined points again but I have a difficult time envisioning Auburn doing much to contain Kentucky this afternoon. I've noted multiple times that Calipari wants his Wildcats to play fast and score points but when you're facing the likes of Florida, it can be difficult to create much flow. You can create flow vs. Auburn with open looks, high percentage shots, and plenty of transition opportunities. Let's give Bruce Pearl credit, not for anything he's done strategically, but getting his kid in the right frame of mind to compete -- a difficult task after such a dismal regular season. The Tigers are in this spot in large part because they've managed to defend having held their first three tournament opponents to less than a point per possession. That may not seem impressive but consider that they did it only twice during conference regular season play. I think that Pearl is going to try to play it more conservatively on offense, maybe try to take the air out of the ball some, but that's not going to work long assuming the Tigers will be down by double digits for much of Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Wisconsin Badgers at Ohio State Buckeyes

Wisconsin at Ohio State
Recommendation: Ohio State +1.5 First Half


I don't buy into team's playing "extra hard" to earn a certain seed in the conference tournament or in the case of Wisconsin, the Big Dance. The Badgers already have the Big Ten regular season crown wrapped up and as a result there is talk about them earning a No. 1 seed come next week's Selection Sunday. I'm sure they'd take it but it'll have no bearing on the outcome of today's game at Ohio State. Visually, Wisconsin was the best team in the Big Ten but I go back to their favorable schedule with getting to play Michigan State, Maryland, Purdue, and today's opponent, Ohio State, only once. A few weeks ago, against a rested and ready Maryland squad, the Badgers were outplayed throughout as the Terrapins won 59-53 in College Park. Not getting as juicy of a price (Maryland was as high as +6) but still catching points with a reputable home team and home court. Should be a great environment with the game being televised nationally on CBS as well as OSU honoring its seniors. We'll look to use that positive energy on a first half play with the home side.

Stanford at Arizona
Recommendation: First Half Over 66


Arizona looked like a well-oiled machine in Thursday's PAC-10 regular season title clinching win over Cal. The Wildcats fell one point short of 100 in the 99-60 route. There's no reason to think that UA's desire to push pace and score won't continue against a reeling Stanford squad playing its second road game in three days. The Cardinal had two chances to pick up much-needed resume building wins against Oregon and Arizona State and faltered both times. The inability to step up when needed has been a staple throughout Johnny Dawkins’ tenure. A win here, though very unlikely, would put them back in the NCAA Tournament picture so perhaps we see some fight. In the first meeting, there was plenty of pace (146 possessions) and points (171). While it'll be tough to top that offensive output, I project the pace to be fairly quick throughout. With perhaps less intensity, both teams playing on short rest, this has all the makings of a loose, up-and-down affair. The concern is should Arizona lead big late, the game has the potential to bog down. To avoid that, I think the best angle here is to step Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Ole Miss Rebels at Alabama Crimson Tide

Ole Miss +2 at Alabama O/U 131.5
Recommendation: Ole Miss


Not trusting of Alabama in the role of a favorite even when you eliminate the issues of not being with starters Shannon Hale and Ricky Tarrant. Tarrant has been out from nearly a month but the recent loss of Hale suggests the Crimson Tide could have a real difficult time scoring the basketball. There's also the issue of Alabama's failures when asked to step up in class. Of their seven SEC wins, only one (Texas A&M back on Jan. 6) came against a high power rated opponent. Of late, it's been very formulaic: beat who your supposed to beat and lose against "better" competition. Ole Miss enters off back-to-back losses and is in desperate need a good performance. The Rebels have proven capable on the highway with five SEC wins away from Oxford including at Arkansas and Florida. In the end, there isn't a huge difference between these two squads despite Alabama not being all that visually appealing. But with injury concerns and asked to lay points, I see Ole Miss as the right side tonight.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Mississippi State Gamecocks at South Carolina Gamecocks

Mississippi State +9 at South Carolina O/U 122.5
Recommendation: Mississippi State


Not sure why South Carolina is laying this many points against a very comparable opponent. The Gamecocks have been in when's-the-offseason mode for much of the last month. They scored an unimpressive five-point win over Missouri and beat a Georgia squad that was without its starting point guard. Unlike Mississippi State, there were expectations placed on Frank Martin's group after a 9-3 non-conference mark. But nothing has gone right as the Gamecocks can't shoot, they don't always play with effort, and Martin's perpetual foul mood has clearly worn on the players. The one thing I know I'm going to get with Rick Ray's squad is effort. Since getting blown out in its first two SEC games, Mississippi State has been outclassed only twice: at Arkansas and vs. Kentucky -- both of which perfectly understandable. The rest of their games were five wins and losses by 4, 6, 6, 4, 6, and 4. This line is based on a power rating from two months ago. South Carolina hit as high as 25th in Ken Pom and has dropped to only 70th. Mississippi State bottomed out at 245th and had slowly Read more
