NCAAB Top 25 Cheat Sheet: Monday action
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Creighton Bluejays at Villanova Wildcats (-6, OFF)

There is no secret Doug McDermott is the focal point of Creighton’s offense, but the Bluejays learned Saturday there are times they need more than the nation’s second-leading scorer. The No. 20-ranked Bluejays travel to sixth-ranked Villanova on Monday after suffering their first Big East loss in an 81-68 defeat at Providence, a game in which McDermott scored 21 points but received little support thanks to foul trouble. The Wildcats are unbeaten in conference play and have won five in a row, routing DePaul 88-62 on Saturday.

It will be hard for Villanova – which suffered its only loss to second-ranked Syracuse on Dec. 28 – to play better than it did in the second half Saturday, when the Wildcats shot 73 percent. The Wildcats got a big boost from sophomore Daniel Ochefu, who scored a career-high 14 points while pulling down six rebounds. Creighton trailed by as many as 20 points in seeing its 10-game winning streak end with its first loss since Dec. 1.

TV: 7 p.m. ET, Fox Sports 1

LINE: Villanova opened as 6-point faves. The total is currently off the board.

ABOUT CREIGHTON (15-3, 11-5 ATS): McDermott is one of the top scorers in the nation, and the two-time All-American already has won conference player of the week five times. Jahenns Manigat leads the Big East and is fifth nationally in assist-to-turnover ratio, and Ethan Wragge is hitting 48.5 percent of his 3-point attempts. Creighton leads the nation in 3-point shooting and is second in assists, but have allowed 81 or more points twice in its past three games.

ABOUT VILLANOVA (16-1, 12-3 ATS): Balance has fueled the Wildcats’ rise to Final Four contender, with five players averaging 9.7 points and a defense that leads the conference in field-goal percentage and steals. Ryan Arcidiacono is averaging 13.7 points in his past three games, shooting 14-for-27 from the field. Freshman Josh Hart has won three of the past four conference rookie of the week honors and is shooting 58.3 percent from the field.

TRENDS:

* Creighton is 9-2 ATS in its last 11 games.
* Villanova is 9-1 ATS in its last 10 games following an ATS win.
* Over is 4-1 in Creighton's last five games overall.
* Over is 6-0 in Villanova's last six games versus the Big East.

TIP-INS:

1. The game will be played at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, where the Wildcats went 3-0 last season.

2. Villanova head coach Jay Wright on scouting the Bluejays: “They’re one of those team that when you watch film you get caught up enjoying watching them play as opposed to how you are going to beat them.”

3. Monday marks the first meeting between the two programs since 1952; Villanova leads the all-time series 3-0.



Baylor Bears at Kansas Jayhawks (-10.5, OFF)

Kansas will try to maintain its grip on first place in the Big 12 when the No. 18 Jayhawks host No. 13 Baylor on Monday night. Kansas stayed unbeaten in conference play with an 80-78 victory Saturday against No. 8 Oklahoma State, five days after the Jayhawks knocked off No. 10 Iowa State. Baylor has lost two straight and three of four in Big 12 action, and the Bears have never won in 10 tries in Lawrence, Kan.

Baylor does own bragging rights after handing the Jayhawks their worst loss in seven years in their most recent meeting, an 81-58 victory by the host Bears last March. Cory Jefferson scored 25 points in that game and he’s leading Baylor is scoring and rebounding this season. Kansas is led by a pair of freshmen who will be making their first appearances against Baylor, leading scorer Andrew Wiggins and 7-footer Joel Embiid.

TV: 9 p.m. ET, ESPN

LINE: Kansas opened as 10.5-point faves. The total is currently off the board.

ABOUT BAYLOR (13-4, 4-7 ATS): Wiggins, who hails from Canada, could find himself matched against fellow countrymen Kenny Chery and Brady Heslip of the Bears. Chery is second on the team in scoring at 11.9 points and is averaging 19 points in the last two games after being held to single digits in the previous four. Chery has done a better job of getting to the free throw line lately, combining for 12 free throws in the last two games after taking a total of four in the previous five games.

ABOUT KANSAS (13-4, 8-9 ATS): Perry Ellis will be looking to shake off a mini-shooting slump that began when he shot 4-for-13 against Iowa State, his worst shooting performance of the season, and followed that up by shooting 3-for-8 against Oklahoma State. To make matters worse, Ellis missed all five free throw attempts in the last two games after entering the week shooting 73.8 percent from the stripe this season. Ellis will likely have the added responsibility of trying to contain Jefferson.

TRENDS:

* Baylor is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Kansas.
* Over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Kansas.
* Underdog is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
* Road team is 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings.

TIP-INS:

1. Baylor reserve F Rico Gathers is averaging 7.7 rebounds in 18.9 minutes.

2. Kansas G Naadir Tharpe has posted his three career 20-point performances in the last six games.

3. The Jayhawks have posted 205 consecutive sellouts dating back to the 2001-02 season.

Tuesday's Tip Sheet

January 21, 2014


ESPN will present a double-header on Tuesday that has the potential to shake things up in both the Big Ten and the SEC. The Indiana Hoosiers are still trying to crack the Top 25 even after knocking off then-No. 4 Wisconsin last Tuesday. This time around they will get a shot at taking down No. 3 Michigan State. In the nightcap, Texas A&M has its sights set on making some noise with a road game against No. 14 Kentucky.

Indiana Hoosiers vs. No. 3 Michigan State Spartans (ESPN, 7:00 p.m.)

The Hoosiers followed-up their stunning 75-72 victory over the Badgers as 3 ½-point home underdogs with an ugly 54-47 loss to Northwestern this past Saturday as 13-point favorites at home that speaks directly to the consistency issues that have plagued Indiana all season long. It is now 12-6 straight up on the year with an 8-8-1 record against the spread. The total stayed UNDER the 132 ½-point closing line against the Wildcats after going OVER in four of its previous five contests.

Yogi Ferrell continues to lead the way for the Hoosiers with 17.4 points and 4.0 assists and Noah Vonieh is adding 12.4 points and a team-high 9.2 rebounds a game. The team is averaging 78 points a game while shooting 44.9 percent from the field and 33.1 percent from 3-point range. Indiana is ranked fourth in the nation in total rebounds with an average of 43.2 a game.

Michigan State slid into the No. 3 spot in the latest AP Poll after posting back-to-back double digit victories over Northwestern and Illinois. Its current SU winning streak is now sitting at 10 games and the Spartans are a perfect 6-0 SU in Big Ten play. They are 17-1 SU overall with a 10-6-1 record ATS after covering in eight of their last nine games. The total has gone OVER in three of their last four outings.

It appears that Michigan State will once again be without center Adreian Payne, who has missed the team’s last three games with a foot injury. He is the team’s second leading scorer (16.2 points) and rebounder (7.7). To fill the void, both Gary Harris and Keith Appling will need to continue to step up their game. These two have combined for 34 points, 8.4 rebounds and 7.5 assists this season. The Spartans are averaging 80.4 points a game and shooting 47.9 percent from the field.

Michigan State has been opened as an 11 ½-point home favorite over the Hoosiers for Tuesday night’s matchup.

The home team in this conference clash is 16-6 ATS in the last 22 meetings and the total has gone OVER in six of the last eight games played at Michigan State. Indiana is 2-8 ATS in its last 10 trips to East Lancing.

Texas A&M Aggies vs. No. 12 Kentucky Wildcats (ESPN, 9:00 p.m.)

Texas A&M dropped its first SEC game this season with a tough 81-72 overtime loss to Mississippi State this past Saturday as a three-point road favorite. The Aggies are now 12-5 SU on the year with a 3-1 record in conference play. They are just 3-3 ATS in their last six games and 6-5 ATS overall. The total has stayed UNDER in six of their last eight games with a posted line.

Jamal Jones (12.3 points) and Kourtney Roberson (9.9 points) are the only two Aggies scoring in double figures with a team total of 69.3 points a game. Defensively, the Aggies are holding opponents to an average of 61.5 points a game while averaging 35.6 rebounds. Texas A&M is shooting 45.2 percent from the field and 33.1 percent from 3-point range. It has struggled from the foul line; converting on just 65.7 percent of its attempts.

Kentucky continued to work its way back up the rankings to No. 12 despite last Tuesday’s 87-85 overtime loss to Arkansas as a 1 ½-point road underdog. The Wildcats bounced back by upending Tennessee 74-66 as 8 ½-point home favorites this past Saturday and they are now 13-4 SU with a 3-1 record in the SEC. They have failed to cover in four of their last seven games to fall to 6-7-2 ATS. The total has gone OVER in four of those seven games.

The Wildcats are averaging 80.4 points a game and shooting 47.4 percent from the field. The freshman duo of Julius Randle and James Young continue to evolve their game with a combined 31.1 points, 14.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists a game. Aaron and Andrew Harrison have combined to score 25.6 points and the freshman twins are adding another six rebounds and 5.6 assists a game. When you add it all up, these four first-year players are scoring over 70 percent of Kentucky’s points.

The Wildcats come into this matchup as 14 ½-point home favorites over Texas A&M.

Last season was the first time these two teams played one another in recent memory and they each came away with a SU victory on the road. Texas A&M covered in both games as an underdog and the total went over each time as well.

Other Games

A pair of other games on Tuesday’s schedule involving a ranked team starts things off with No. 22 Kansas State on the road against Texas as a four-point underdog in a 7:00 p.m. tip in the Big 12. That game will be available on ESPN2.

The ACC gets into action at 8:00 p.m. with the Clemson Tigers on the road against No. 20 Pittsburgh as 10 ½-point underdogs. This will be the first meeting between the two since Pitt jumped ship from the Big East at the end of last season. That game will be available on ESPN3.

Indiana at Michigan State: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Indiana Hoosiers at Michigan State Spartans (-12.5, OFF)

Third-ranked Michigan State has sealed the best start in program history and now looks to complete a regular-season sweep of Indiana when the Hoosiers visit East Lansing for Tuesday’s Big Ten matchup. The first-place Spartans have won 10 consecutive games since their lone defeat and one of the victories was an impressive 73-56 road win over Indiana. The Hoosiers are struggling during a rebuilding campaign and suffered a dismal 54-47 loss to Northwestern on Saturday.

Spartans guard Gary Harris scored a career-high 26 points in the win over the Hoosiers on Jan. 4 and the sophomore had another big outing last Saturday against Illinois when he scored 23 points in a 78-62 victory. Indiana’s sub-par showing against Northwestern – the Hoosiers shot a porous 25 percent from the field – was doubly painful coming just four days after a big upset of then-No. 3 Wisconsin. “We actually took a step back now,” said guard Stanford Robinson after the contest, “and so we have to take a couple steps forward just to catch up to where we were.”

TV: 7 p.m. ET, ESPN

LINE: Michigan State opened as 12.5-point faves. The total is currently off the board.

ABOUT INDIANA (12-6, 8-8-1 ATS): The Hoosiers have three double-digit scorers in guard Yogi Ferrell (17.4), forward Noah Vonleh (12.4 points, team-best 9.2 rebounds) and forward Will Sheehey (10.4) but aren’t coming close to meeting coach Tom Crean’s expectations. “I try to understand more than ever that you coach potential during practice, you coach performance during the game and you try to give your team every possible chance to win, whether people understand it or not,” Crean said after the Northwestern loss. “You’re trying to get your team – and I’m with this team every day so I have an idea of what it looks like.”

ABOUT MICHIGAN STATE (17-1, 10-5-2 ATS): The Spartans haven’t missed a beat with center Adreian Payne (16.2 points, 7.7 rebounds) about to miss his fourth consecutive game with an ankle injury and Harris views his loss as a blessing in disguise. “We learned to play without him,” said Harris, who averages a team-best 17.9 points while accumulating a team-leading 29 steals. “Some other guys stepped up. We’re building a team.” Point guard Keith Appling (16.1 points, team-best 4.6 assists) and forward Branden Dawson (10.1 points, team-leading 8.7 rebounds) are also playing solidly.

TRENDS:

* Over is 6-1-1 in the last eight meetings at Michigan St.
* Home team is 16-6 ATS in the last 22 meetings.
* Indiana is 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings at Michigan St.

TIP-INS:

1. The Spartans have won seven of the last nine meetings.

2. Michigan State is committing just 11.4 turnovers per game and is on pace to set the mark for the fewest turnovers during Tom Izzo’s 19-season tenure, supplanting the 13 per contest of 2011-12.

3. Indiana is outrebounding its opponents by 11.3 per game and Michigan State (34-32) is the only team to win the battle of the boards against the Hoosiers.

Exposing the Top 25: Where the polls went wrong


Each week throughout the college basketball season, Covers Expert Jesse Schule will dissect the new Top 25 rankings, looking for betting value. He'll showcase the most overrated team, along with the most underrated ranked team, and an unranked squad that he feels should be in the Top 25.

Most underrated Top 25 team: Wichita State Shockers (19-0 SU, 12-3-1 ATS)

It's tough to make an argument that the Shockers aren’t underrated. After all, they have the best record in the country at 19-0 and yet they’re ranked behind both Villanova and Michigan State, despite the fact that both those teams have suffered at least one loss this season. There is also the fact that the Shockers are covering the spread in 80 percent of their games so far, a truly amazing statistic considering we are more than halfway through the season.

Critics will say that the Shockers’ schedule doesn't see them play a single ranked opponent all season. That doesn't mean they haven't played any quality teams. They have registered impressive double-digit victories over BYU and DePaul, and they beat Saint Louis and Alabama on the road. We saw what this team was capable in last year's tournament and there is every reason to expect them to be a contender once again this March.

Most overrated Top 25 team: Villanova Wildcats (16-2 SU, 12-4 ATS)

The Wildcats climbed all the way to fourth in the national polls this week. But on the very same day the new rankings came out, they were blown out on their own court by the Creighton Bluejays. They didn't just lose that game - they lost by a staggering 18-point margin at home.

The Wildcats play three straight road games over the next 10 days, then return home to host a dangerous Xavier team. It seems inevitable that Villanova will slide downward in the rankings as the season progresses.

Unranked team that should be ranked: Creighton Bluejays (15-3 SU, 12-5 ATS)

The AP dropped the Bluejays from the rankings this week, after their 10-game winning streak came to an end on the road against Providence. Creighton, though, is almost guaranteed to shoot back up into the rankings after its upset win at Villanova.

Doug McDermott and the boys shot 60 percent from 3-point range in the win over the Wildcats, hitting 21 3-pointers. Any team that is capable of doing that on the road versus one of the nation's Top 5 teams is going to strike fear into any opponent.
