College Basketball Plays for 12/9/20

**Boise State +5 at BYU: Boise State's feisty backcourt should provide enough resistance to keep BYU's 3-point shooting relatively in check. BYU is transitioning to a more "around the basket" game due to the size of its frontcourt but the Cougars still have work to do in that aspect (BYU's frontcourt was exposed a couple of weeks back vs USC). … [Read more...]

College Basketball Plays for Tuesday 12/8/20

**Iowa -3 vs N Carolina: Luke Garza is one of 5 starters that returns for an Iowa squad that has looked the part early on vs lower level competition. North Carolina showed toughness vs a strong Texas squad but the early underlying numbers aren't adding up (Assists/Turnovers). As of mid morning pacific time, 60% of the play is on North Carolina as … [Read more...]

College Basketball Plays for Monday 12/7/20

**Hartford -3.5 vs Fairfield: Hartford became battle tested early with a pair of games vs Top 20 teams, which included an honest effort and ATS cover vs UConn. I don't see Fairfield's defense being able to stop Hartford's Moses Howard (scored 20+ on Fairfield last week), who will be the best player on the court today. Lay the points on the home … [Read more...]

College Basketball Plays for Sunday 12/6/20

Georgetown +6.5 (first half) vs West Virginia: Underlying numbers suggest West Virginia is moderately better than Georgetown, but not double-digits better. Adding to that is Georgetown truly playing at "home" as this game will take place at on-campus McDonough Arena, where Georgetown actually practices. No bus ride to the Pepsi Center today. A … [Read more...]

College Football & Basketball Plays for Saturday 12/5/20

COLLEGE FOOTBALL **NC State -6 vs Ga Tech  (Circa line): NC State beats teams they are supposed to and that should be the case here. NC State is on a 4-1 ATS run at home and will look to close out their season on a positive note. Georgia Tech's offense looked like a monster vs a Duke defense that is ranked #82 in the NCAA...I'll gladly lay less … [Read more...]

**Wisconsin -4 at Marquette: Don't let Wisconsin's early subpar ATS record give you pause as in both of their ATS losses, the end of the Badgers bench players logged many minutes. Marquette has not put up strong underlying numbers in their early contests vs teams that are much less than Wisconsin. Lay it. **Florida AM+17 at South Florida: … [Read more...]

College Basketball Free Picks 12/3/20

**Drake -8.5 vs Neb Omaha: This Drake team is legit and the ATS numbers all favor the Bulldogs who are 70% winners ATS in the last two years on their home court.   **UTSA +9 (first half) at Oklahoma: Everyone is on Oklahoma here as they finally open their season after COVID delays. UTSA is no juggernaut but they take care of the ball - which … [Read more...]

College Basketball Selections for 12/2/20

**Texas +1 at N Carolina: Shaka Smart's squad seems different this year and the early underlying numbers show that their early success is no fluke. If they continue to keep turnovers in check,which I believe they will vs a Tarheel defense that is good but not great, their success will continue. Take the point in what should be a great game in … [Read more...]

College Basketball Selections for 12/1/20

**Creighton -20 vs Neb Omaha: This spread may actually be a tad deflated after Creighton looked shaky vs winless North Dakota State on Sunday. However, Creighton should have no problem with a Nebraska-Omaha team whose underlying statistical numbers are abysmal, with some providing a bad matchup vs Creighton's more solid assist game and turnover … [Read more...]
