Minnesota vs. SMU Basketball Betting Odds & Pick from Jimmy Boyd: April 3rd 2014

You have to be impressed with the way SMU has responded to being left out of the NCAA Tournament. The Mustangs are on a mission to prove the committee wrong and they can do just that with a win over Minnesota in the NIT Championship. I look for head coach Larry Brown and the SMU players to do just that.

While both the Gophers and Mustangs had an easy opening round matchup, SMU has had the more difficult path to the title game with their last three coming against LSU, Cal and Clemson. Minnesota’s only real challenge came in the semifinals, where they barely squeaked by Florida State 67-64 in overtime.

The Mustangs are 14-7 ATS versus teams with a winning record this season, while the Gophers are just 1-7 ATS away from home against teams who have outscored the opposition by 8+ points per game. Minnesota’s win over the Seminoles was just their sixth victory away from home this season. In fact, the Gophers have lost more games on the road than SMU has lost all season.

The Mustangs rank 30th in Kenpon and 31st in BPI. Minnesota is just 52nd in Kenpom and 47th in the BPI. There’s clearly value with SMU laying just 3-points.

Michigan State vs. Connecticut Point Spread & Prediction from Jimmy Boyd: March 30th 2014

The Huskies have been one of the most underrated teams in the country all season. This is a team that handed Florida one of its two losses this season. UConn also has one of the best defenses in the country. They have held opponents to a mere 64 points per game on the year. Another big reason for the Huskies success has been their ability to play smart basketball. UConn is not a team that turns the ball over very often, and they rarely find themselves in foul trouble.

There is no denying the fact that Michigan State is a great team when they are healthy, but I don’t think they are good enough defensively to beat the Huskies by a margin large enough to cover this spread. Over their last five games the Spartans have surrendered 68 points per game. Nobody has had an answer for Shabazz Napier this season and I expect him to be a thorn in the side of the Spartans. Napier is coming into this matchup averaging 17.9 points per game, 5.9 rebounds per game and 4.9 assists per game. He is one of just 10 players in the entire country that has posted a triple-double this season.

Louisiana Tech vs. Florida State Basketball Betting Odds & Pick: March 26th 2014

This NIT quarterfinal matchup for the right to head to Madison Square Garden next week has the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs traveling to face the Seminoles of Florida State. Tech knocked off Georgia on Saturday, while the Seminoles rained three-pointers on Georgetown in an 11-point win two nights later.

These two teams met just over a year ago in a first round NIT clash with an almost identical situation. Florida State was a small home favorite, and in that game, the Bulldogs were the ones who came away with a five-point win.

While the Seminoles torched the nets on Monday for 101 points, they haven’t been able to cover in consecutive games for over two months. They’ve also had major problems when it comes to beating line against teams with a top-notch record like Tech, which enters the game with a 29-7 mark, and tends to build momentum off their wins, with six covers in their last seven tries.

Early money has been nearly 4-1 in favor of Florida State, yet the line hasn’t moved at all. That suggests that the Sharps are going with the dog in this matchup, and given their season-long success, we’re also going to back the Bulldogs here.

Ryan went 9-2 ATS in the first Three Rounds of the NCAA Tournament and now takes aim at the NIT quarterfinals matchups. His research always shows you why this play is a Top Rated 10* Titan release and features a perfect 6-0 ATS game matchup situation.

5* graded play on Yale as they take on Columbia in the College Insiders Quarterfinals set to start Wednesday at 7:00 PM ET. The simulator shows a high probability that Yale will lose this game by fewer than 5 points and has a great shot at upsetting their fellow Ancient Eight Conference foe. The following game situations match the projections produced by the SIM. Yale is a solid money making 8-2 ATS (+5.8 Units) when they make 72% to 78% of their free throws in a game this season; 43-22 ATS (+18.8 Units) in road games when they grab 34 to 39 rebounds in a game since 1997. The game matchups also side with Yale noting they are 23-9 ATS (+13.1 Units) in road games when facing teams who average 6 or less steals/game on the season after 15+ games since 1997; 30-15 ATS (+13.5 Units) in road games facing teams who average 6 or less steals/game on the season since 1997. Further Yale is a near-perfect 8-1 ATS (+6.9 Units) revenging a loss where team scored less than 60 points over the last 3 seasons. These two teams split their two conference games this season with the last one seeing Yale crushed by 16 points and scoring just 46 points. Those are the types of games that do make revenge a valid factor. Take Yale.

Belmont vs. Clemson Betting Odds & Pick from Scott Spreitzer: March 25th 2014

We’re recommending a play on Clemson minus the points on Tuesday night. The Tigers haven’t been a popular choice in early betting, but we believe this is too tough of a matchup for the Bruins. Belmont loves to bomb away from the 3-point line, but they’re running into a fierce Clemson defensive scheme. The Tigers are 4th in the nation, allowing just 57.9 ppg on 39.3% shooting (14th) and they own the stingiest deep perimeter defense in the nation, holding their opponents to 27.9% shooting from beyond the arc. They’re even better on their home floor. Belmont likes to get the ball up the floor, but they don’t play much defense, allowing teams to “can” over 45% of their shots, while allowing “hosts” to make almost 48% of their shots. Clemson’s slower schemes should throw a wrench into Belmont’s system and eventually I expect Clemson to pull away by margin. The Tigers are making the most of their home court advantage, already beating Georgia State and Illinois. And we should note that home teams from major conferences are on a 40-14 ATS run against teams from mid-major conferences, provided the home team is off at least two straight home wins and laying 3 1/2 to 9 1/2 points. While I’m not a big “angles” capper and don’t base my plays on them, a 40-14 mark does say something about the situation these teams are in tonight. We’re recommending a play on Clemson on Tuesday. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.

Minnesota is being overvalued at home against a very good So. Miss squad that is 14-5 ATS this season against winning teams, including 8-2 ATS versus teams with a win percentage of .600 to .800. The Golden Eagles have been outstanding in games played away from home, going 14-6 in such games this season. The Golden Gophers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a cover, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games versus a team with a winning record and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games. Grab the points.

Want no part of a Florida St. team who is on a current run of 2-2 SU, 1-3 ATS and averaging just 59 PPG. We faded them with a Top Play winner in their Opening Round survival (58-53) against FGCU. Part of the recent issue is the absence of injured scorer, Ian Miller, who is again questionable this evening, along with the Sems’ interior force, Ojo. Far prefer a Georgetown team who sprang to life following season-ending losses to Villanova, then DePaul in the CCT. The (77-65) trouncing of WVU in the NIT Opener implies the Hoyas are serious about this event. Thompson and Hamilton match defensive game plans, while getting the maximum from their troops. That would favor the Georgetown combo of Starks and Riviera-Smith, in the underdog role against a Florida St. team, who performs far less profitably in the role of favorite, standing 2-7 ATS as home chalk in 2014.

Nebraska-Omaha vs. Murray State Betting Pick & Odds: March 24th 2014

I’m recommending a play on Nebraska-Omaha plus the points on Monday night. Before the season began, few would have thought the final team playing basketball from eastern Nebraska would be the UNO Mavericks. But that’s the case for the veteran-led and high scoring squad from Omaha. High scoring is the key phrase in this one. The Mavericks are at their best when their opponents play an uptempo game. Murray State will. The Racers are giving up 72.6 ppg on 45.5% shooting which ranks 266th in the nation. The Mavs will give up points, allowing almost 75 ppg, but they will take advantage of Murray State’s tempo. Omaha averages 80.5 ppg on the season with six players averaging over 9 ppg. The Mavs head into this one on fire, scoring 91, 95, and 88 points in their last three games on a combined 99-of-196, 50.5% shooting. Nebraska-Omaha is a momentum team, currently on a 7-0, 100% ATS run after scoring 75 points or more in at least two straight games. They’ll face a Murray State squad that has allowed their last three opponents to make 100-of-190, 52.6% of their FGA. I believe this one goes right to the wire and I’m recommending a play on Nebraska-Omaha in Monday’s lone CIT contest. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
