Sunday's Pac-12 Action

February 9, 2013

The Pac-12 takes center-stage in a rare Sunday night tripleheader. Nine of the league's 12 teams own a .500 record or better inside the conference, as Arizona is holding onto a slim lead at 8-2. The big question heading down the stretch is if Oregon, Arizona State, or UCLA can catch Arizona for the top seed in the Pac 12 tournament. Several of the middle-tier clubs have an opportunity at a road victory on Sunday, including Cal, who makes a trip to Tucson.

Cal at Arizona - 7:00 PM EST

The Wildcats are riding a four-game winning streak since getting blown out by UCLA on January 24, as Arizona goes for just its fourth cover in 11 conference games. Sean Miller's team failed to cash in Wednesday's 73-66 victory over Stanford as 10 ½-point favorites, dropping the 'Cats to 1-6 ATS in the last seven games as double-digit 'chalk.' Arizona overcame a one-point deficit to outscore Stanford, 47-39 in the second half, while Mark Lyons and Solomon Hill combined for 48 points.

The Golden Bears fell short in a 66-62 defeat at Arizona State on Thursday, while failing to cash as 3 ½-point 'dogs. Mike Montgomery's squad has now hit the 'under' in seven of the last eight contests, as Cal is searching for some consistency on offense. In five of the previous nine games, Cal has scored 62 points or less, but the Bears have eclipsed the 71-point mark three times. The road has been tough for Cal inside the Pac-12, going 2-4 SU/ATS with the only wins coming at Utah and USC.

Arizona has taken four of the last five meetings in the series, but the two teams are meeting for the only time in the regular season. The Bears are making their first trip to Tucson since January 2011 when Cal covered as 13-point underdogs in a 73-71 setback.

Colorado at Oregon State - 9:00 PM EST

The Buffaloes picked up one of their uglier wins of the season in a 48-47 close-shave at Oregon as seven-point 'dogs on Thursday. Each team shot just 36% from the floor, while Colorado had only one player score in double-figures (Andre Roberson - 10), but the Buffs managed their fourth victory in five games. CU improved to 3-1 ATS as an underdog in Pac-12 action, but Tad Boyle's team has lost outright in two road favorite opportunities at Arizona State and Utah.

The Beavers are the hottest ATS team in the conference by covering seven of the last eight games, including five straight in the underdog role. Craig Robinson's squad snapped a three-game skid with Thursday's home rout of Utah, 82-64 as 8 ½-point 'chalk,' while limiting the Utes to 35% shooting from the field. The win was just the second in 10 conference contests, as Oregon State owns a dreadful 1-6 ATS record in lined games off a victory this season.

The home team won each of the two meetings in Colorado's debut season inside the Pac-12, as the Beavers blew out the Buffaloes in Corvallis, 83-69.

Washington at USC - 10:00 PM EST

Both the Huskies and Trojans each own 5-5 records inside the Pac-12, while each club is going in different directions. Washington started conference play at 4-0, but Lorenzo Romar's team is headed backwards with losses in five of the last six games. The Huskies fell at the buzzer in Thursday's two-point setback at UCLA, even though UW covered as seven-point underdogs. In spite of Washington's struggles, the Huskies improved to 8-2 ATS against Pac-12 opponents, including 6-1 ATS mark as an underdog.

The Trojans have split six games since the firing of head coach Kevin O'Neill in mid-January, which includes consecutive wins over UCLA and Washington State. USC pushed as four-point favorites in Thursday's 72-68 victory over Wazoo, the third win in five conference games at the Galen Center. This is the third instance in which the Trojans have are seeking a three-game winning streak, but USC has failed in the first two chances with losses to Illinois and Cal as short favorites.

Washington captured both matchups with USC last season, including a 22-point blowout as 7 ½-point favorites in Los Angeles. The Trojans last beat the Huskies at home in January 2010, while losing three of the last four meetings in Southern California.

Sunday's Slate

February 9, 2013


With football season now in the rearview mirror, it’s great to see college hoops stepping up with a great card for Sunday. We have a number of outstanding matchups so let’s take a look at two crucial Big Ten showdowns to get started.

**Indiana at Ohio State**

--Most offshore books opened Ohio State (17-5 straight up, 12-8 against the spread) as a 1.5-point favorite. However, as of early Saturday night, many books had the game as a pick ‘em with a total of 139.5.

--Thad Matta’s squad saw its four-game winning streak snapped in Tuesday’s 76-74 loss at Michigan. Nevertheless, the Buckeyes hooked up their betting supporters as seven-point road underdogs. DeShaun Thomas had a team-high 17 points in the losing effort, while LaQuinton Ross came off the bench to score 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field.

--Ohio St. has been a single-digit home favorite four times this season, compiling a 3-1 spread record. The Buckeyes have won 12 of their 13 home games while going 8-4 ATS. Their only loss in Columbus came against Kansas.

--Indiana (20-3 SU, 11-10 ATS) is in bounce-back mode after getting beat Thursday night on a buzzer shot at Illinois. The Illini captured a 74-72 win as a seven-point home underdog when Tyler Griffey somehow got wide open to make an easy layup before the horn off an inbounds play on the baseline. Cody Zeller had 14 points and nine rebounds in defeat. Jordan Hulls, one of the nation’s premier perimeter shooters, finished with 11 points on 3-of-4 shooting from 3-point land.

--Tom Crean’s team is an underdog for the first time this year in this spot. The Hoosiers have prevailed in four of their five true road assignments, but they are 2-3 ATS.

--These Big Ten rivals split a pair of regular-season meetings last year with the home team winning both times. When they played in Columbus, Ohio St. cruised to an 80-63 victory as a 13-point home ‘chalk.’

--The ‘under’ is 12-7 overall for the Buckeyes, 7-5 in their home games.

--The ‘under’ is 9-8 overall for the Hoosiers, but they have seen the ‘over’ hit at a 3-1 clip in their last four games.

--CBS will have the telecast at 1:00 p.m. Eastern.

**Illinois at Minnesota**

--Most books opened Minnesota (17-6 SU, ATS) as a 9.5-point favorite. The total started at 138.5.

--Tubby Smith’s team has lost five of its last seven games, but there’s no reason for the Gophers to hit the panic button. Each of the defeats came to high-level foes with the exception of the loss at Northwestern. The Gophers have dropped to 5-5 in Big Ten play.

--Minnesota has won 12 of its 14 home games at The Barn, posting an 8-6 spread record. The Gophers are 1-1 both SU and ATS in a pair of single-digit home ‘chalk’ situations.

--Illinois (16-8 SU, 9-12 ATS) is coming off its thrilling victory over Indiana as mentioned above. The Illini hooked up money-line supporters with a payout in the plus-250 range (risk $100 to win $250).

--John Groce’s team has been an underdog 10 times, going 5-5 ATS with four outright victories.

--The ‘under’ is 10-8 overall for the Gophers, 6-5 in their 11 home games with a total. The ‘under’ is 4-1 in Minnesota’s last five games (regardless of venue).

--The ‘under’ is 11-9 overall for Illinois, 7-3 in its last 10 games.

--The ‘over’ has hit in three straight head-to-head meetings.

--When these schools met on Jan. 9 in Champaign-Urbana, Minnesota collected an 84-67 win at Illinois as a 1.5-point road ‘chalk.’ The 151 combined points sailed ‘over’ the 140.5-point total Joe Coleman scored a game-high 29 points for the Gophers, who also got a 22-point effort from guard Andre Hollins. Coleman made 10-of-16 shots from the field and Hollins drained 4-of-6 from 3-point range. Trevor Mbakwe added 19 points and 11 rebounds. Brandon Paul had a team-high 21 points for Illinois, but he was only 6-of-17 from the floor and missed five of his six 3-point attempts.

--Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. Eastern on The Big Ten Network (channel 610 on DirecTV).

**B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**

--Michigan has now lost 11 consecutive games in Madison against Wisconsin. We saw an incredible finish on Saturday in the Badgers’ 65-62 win over the Wolverines in overtime. Tim Hardaway Jr. hit a deep trey to put Michigan ahead by three with 2.4 seconds remaining. But the game got sent to OT when Ben Brust buried a heave just inside halfcourt that looked eerily similar to the attempt by Butler’s Gordon Hayward that was off the mark in the national-title game against Duke a few years ago. Brust knocked down another crucial 3-pointer in the extra session as Bo Ryan’s team won outright as a short home underdog.

--I have never been hesitant to admit it when I’ve been wrong. And there’s no doubt that I was w-r-o-n-g in my criticism of Miami for not attempting to hire Frank Martin two years ago. The Hurricanes got it right with the hiring of former George Mason coach Jim Larranaga, who led his team to another blowout win on Saturday. The ‘Canes destroyed North Carolina by an 87-61 count to remain unbeaten in ACC action.

--Maryland is a 1.5-point home favorite vs. Virginia on Sunday afternoon. Both teams need this one badly.

--Tennessee is a 1.5-point road ‘chalk’ at South Carolina. After missing the last two games, Vols’ starting point guard Trae Golden is expected to return from a hamstring injury.

--Following its huge upset wins over Florida and Kansas, respectively, Arkansas and TCU both lost Saturday (SU and ATS) to Vandy and West Va. Off its huge win over Indiana, is Illinois in the same situation at Minnesota?

--Syracuse is a 15-point home favorite vs. St. John’s. The Red Storm has been a double-digit ‘dog only once this year, winning outright by a 53-52 score at Cincinnati as a 13.5-point puppy.

--The ‘Cuse owns a 6-4 spread record in 10 games as a double-digit favorite.

No. 10 OSU looks to knock off No. 1 Indiana Sunday

INDIANA HOOSIERS (20-3)

at OHIO STATE BUCKEYES (17-5)


Value City Arena - Columbus, OH
Tip-off: Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET
Line: Ohio State -1.5, Total: 138.5

A pair of top-10 teams looking to recover from heart-breaking losses will square off Sunday afternoon when No. 1 Indiana visits No. 10 Ohio State.

The Hoosiers were on their way to a fifth straight victory on Thursday night at Illinois, leading by nine points with 3:36 left in regulation, but the Illini finished the game on a 13-2 run capped off by a buzzer-beating layup off an inbounds pass to win 74-72. The Buckeyes went on the road to face No. 3 Michigan on Wednesday, and lost by two points in overtime. Ohio State has thoroughly enjoyed this series over the past five seasons, beating Indiana in seven of eight meetings (SU and ATS).

Which team will avoid a losing streak on Sunday? For the answer, connect to College Basketball Best Bets for all the Expert picks throughout the entire 2012-13 season. The experts have been sizzling, as StatFox Gary is 8-2-1 ATS (80%) in the past six days, improving to an impressive 57.4% ATS (78-58-2) mark for the season. StatFox Dave is 10-5-1 ATS (67%) in the past five days, including a 5-2 ATS (71%) mark on Saturday, to boost his season win percentage to a profitable 54% ATS (124-106-4) for the season. StatFox Scott is 5-1 ATS (83%) since Friday.

Indiana ranks among the nation's top teams in four of the major offensive categories with 83.3 PPG, 50.1% FG, 39.7 RPG and 15.8 APG. C Cody Zeller (16.2 PPG, 8.3 RPG) is playing strong recently with 17.3 PPG and 10.0 RPG in the past three games. Zeller had 15.0 PPG on 12-of-18 FG in last season's two games versus Ohio State, but he was saddled with foul trouble, committing a total of nine fouls. SG Victor Oladipo (13.8 PPG, 5.7 RPG) is also hot with 16.2 PPG (56% FG) and 2.8 SPG in his past five games. He is now shooting 64% from the floor, 53% from three-point range and swipes 2.3 SPG. After scoring 15 points in the home win over OSU last season, he managed just five points (2-of-6 FG) in the loss at Columbus. PF Christian Watford (12.9 PPG, 6.7 RPG) actually shoots better from behind the arc (47%) than from two-point range (43%), but has been remarkably consistent with 13 straight games of 10+ points. However, he did not shoot well against the Buckeyes last season, making just 7-of-23 shots. PG Jordan Hulls (11.1 PPG, 3.2 APG) is also an incredible shooter from long range (50% 3-pt FG) who turns the ball over just once every 21.2 MPG this season. Hulls averaged 13.0 PPG on 50% FG (5-of-11 threes) in two meetings with OSU last season. SF Will Sheehey (10.0 PPG, 3.7 RPG) is another sharp-shooter (51% FG, 36% threes), but is 0-for-8 from downtown in his past three games combined. PG Yogi Ferrell (7.7 PPG, 4.5 APG) has a solid 2.06 Ast/TO ratio in his freshman season, and he's also been on a roll in scoring points, averaging 11.6 PPG during the past five contests.

Ohio State's offense is nothing special, averaging 71.9 PPG, but it does shoot pretty well from the floor (46.1% FG) and from three-point range (37.7%), while committing just 11.2 TOPG. But where the Buckeyes really stand out is on the defensive end, allowing just 58.1 PPG on 38.3% FG. PF Deshaun Thomas leads the Big Ten with 19.9 PPG thanks to a 46% FG clip (40% threes) and 82% from the free-throw line. But he really struggled against the Hoosiers last season with a paltry 8.0 PPG and 3.0 RPG. Junior SG Lenzelle Smith, Jr. (10.5 PPG, 5.3 RPG) was a perfect 6-of-6 from the field (3-for-3 threes) in Saturday's win at Nebraska, finishing with a season-high 21 points. But on Tuesday, he made just 4-of-10 shots, committing four turnovers. However, Smith lit up the Hoosiers for 20.0 PPG in the two games last season, scoring 28 points on 10-of-12 FG (4-of-5 threes) in the home win over Indiana. PG Aaron Craft (9.3 PPG, 4.5 APG, 2.0 SPG) has a strong 2.36 Ast/TO ratio this season and has been starting to drive the basketball better, averaging 11.4 PPG in his past five games, thanks to 17-of-21 FT. Backup PG Shannon Scott (5.0 PPG, 3.9 APG, 1.6 SPG) has been outstanding in taking care of the basketball, as his 3.44 Ast/TO ratio ranks among the top players in the country in this category. C Amir Williams (4.5 PPG, 4.1 RPG) has been quite a presence in the paint with a team-best 1.7 BPG for the season. In the past three games, he has 6.0 RPG and 3.0 BPG, making 10-of-13 free throws.

Armadillo: Sunday's six-pack

Some notes on Notre Dame's 104-101 win over Louisville, in five OT's

-- Louisville led 56-48 (56-48!!!!) with 0:50 left, then Jerian Grant went bonkers, scoring 12 points in 0:23 (12 points in 0:23!!!!) to tie the game.

-- Garrick Sherman scored 17 points in 22 minutes for Notre Dame; in his previous eight games, Sherman played a total of 29 minutes. He never got into this game until the first overtime, yet he scored 17 points.

-- How does Peyton Siva play 41 minutes and score two points?

-- Russ Smith was 13-16 on foul line, but 4-19 from floor, 0-6 from arc, and looked very untrustworthy to make a sound decision in crunch time.

-- 16 ties, 26 lead changes. Last five-OT game was Baylor-Texas A&M in College Station five years ago (Bears won 116-110).

-- One of the refs couldn't make it to South Bend because of weather, so ref John Gaffney was summoned from Milwaukee, where he worked DePaul-Marquette earlier in day. Gaffney reffed for 105 minutes Saturday.


*****

Armadillo: Sunday's List of 13: Wrapping up a college basketball Saturday....

As I type this, it is 2 below zero here in upstate New York. If anyone has a condo in Las Vegas they want to sell me, I'm all ears. Cold ears, but listening.

13) Notre Dame 104, Louisville 101, in five OT's-- Will be hard to top this as the best game of the season. Was a lousy game for 39 minutes, then all hell broke loose. Check the box up above for some notes on this game.

12) Wisconsin 65, Michigan 62, OT-- Kid on Badgers stuck a 40-footer at the buzzer to force OT, when Wolverines had fouls to give but didn't foul. Hard to believe this wasn't the most exciting game of the day. It wasn't.

11) Tweet of the Day, from Oakland Grizzlies' coach Greg Kampe:

"Shhhhh. Be vewy vewy quiet. I'm hunting Jackwabbits."

You see, Kampe's team hosted South Dakota State's Jackrabbits Saturday, so in his best Elmer Fudd voice, Kampe sent his team on the floor and pulled the upset, 88-83. Oakland "held" Nate Wolters to 36 (he had 53 Thursday).

10) Illinois State 75, Creighton 72-- Top of the MVC is taking some lumps from middle of the league, which won't help come Selection Sunday.

9) Miami 87, North Carolina 61-- Not only did the Hurricanes crush the Tar Heels, they clowned them too, throwing alley-oops off the backboard for breakaway dunks. That will be remembered down the road in Chapel Hill.

8) UNLV 64, New Mexico 55-- Rebels desperately needed this win, and so did North Carolina, since Rebels are their best non-conference win. UNLV is still trying to find lineup combos that work; all of them would work better if they had a dynamic point guard on the squad. Not even close.

7) Memphis 89, Southern Miss 76-- Josh Pastner takes a lot of grief since he isn't named Calipari, but his Tigers are unbeaten in C-USA. This was a solid win over a Golden Eagle squad that pressures ball really well, and had not lost a conference home game.

6) Oklahoma 72, Kansas 66-- Jayhawks have lost three games in row for first time in eight years; listening to Bill Self after the game, he could accept losing to the Sooners, but was still annoyed about the TCU game. .

5) Texas gets PG Myck Kabongo back for its next game, but they're 10-13, 2-8 in conference play, doubtful he can help them enough to make NCAAs, unless they somehow won the conference tournament. Hopefully he'll do the right thing and play for Texas next year, to improve his NBA stock.

4) Temple 72, Dayton 71-- Dr Naismith spun around in his grave watching end of this game; in the last 0:03, there were three turnovers and 0-5 shooting from the foul line. In three freakin' seconds. There was also a decent amount of horrific officiating. Neither team deserved to win, and the refs didn't really deserve to get paid. Just ask Archie Miller.

3) Northeastern 79, Old Dominion 74, OT-- Monarchs were 2-20, they fired the coach, then they upset Drexel and took first place Huskies to OT, so I'm guessing there is an interesting story behind the firing.

2) Georgia 52, Texas A&M 46-- We generally root for bald coaches who wear glasses, so good to see Mark Fox win his fifth straight game, against an Aggie team playing on short rest after beating Missouri Thursday.

1) I mentioned this a couple weeks ago, it is still true; there is one thing preventing Miami from being ranked #1, not that it matters much- their uniforms aren't blue, and they don't say "DUKE" on the front. Next month there is a tournament, so the polls will be forgotten soon, thank God.

Study group: Sunday’s Top 25 NCB betting notes
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Indiana Hoosiers at Ohio State Buckeyes (-1.5, 138)

Indiana became the latest top-ranked team to taste defeat the week after they ascended to the No.1 spot. Although an extended stay is highly unlikely, the top-ranked Hoosiers can make their case to remain in that spot with a win Sunday at No. 10 Ohio State. Over the last four weeks, Louisville, Duke, Kansas and Indiana have taken one-week turns as the top-ranked team in the coaches’ poll, only to be dismissed the following week.

Four of the top five teams in the most recent poll suffered at least one loss in the past week while No. 4 Duke isn’t even leading its own conference, placing voters in a bind. The Hoosiers likely lost their grip of the top spot with Thursday’s surprising loss at Illinois, but might be able to make up for it against the Buckeyes, who saw their four-game winning streak snapped Wednesday in an overtime loss at Michigan.

St. John's Red Storm at Syracuse Orange (-16, 131)

Two of the top 10 winningest programs in Division I history renew acquaintances on Sunday when St. John’s attempts to end the country’s longest-active home winning streak when it faces No. 9 Syracuse. The Orange are tied with Marquette atop the Big East standings and have won 36 straight at home, with their last such loss coming Feb. 9, 2011, against Georgetown. But Syracuse is vulnerable at the moment with top outside threat James Southerland and bruising forward DaJuan Coleman both out.

Syracuse – fifth on the D-I wins list – rebounded from its first two conference losses with Monday’s 63-47 victory over Notre Dame. However, the vaunted Orange offense that averaged 82 points in non-conference action is averaging only 65.9 during Big East play. St. John’s – seventh all-time in wins – picked up its sixth victory in seven games with Wednesday’s triumph over Connecticut.

Duke Blue Devils at Boston College Eagles (+12, 145)

Duke will try to continue its winning ways when it travels to Boston College for an ACC game Sunday evening. The No. 4 Blue Devils have won four straight after dropping two of three following the injury to third-leading scorer Ryan Kelly. Duke beat North Carolina State on Thursday night, the same team that toppled the Blue Devils on Jan. 12, the first game Kelly missed with a right foot injury.

Kelly is expected to miss his eighth consecutive game with the injury, leaving fellow seniors Mason Plumlee and Seth Curry to pick up the slack. Plumlee did exactly that against North Carolina State, scoring 30 points in the 98-85 victory, while Curry finished with 26 points for his third straight game with 21 or more. Boston College will try to counter with a starting lineup that features two freshmen and three sophomores. The first two players off the bench are also sophomores.

Illinois Fighting Illini and Minnesota Golden Gophers (-10, 137)

Illinois, which snapped a three-game losing streak with a dramatic 74-72 home upset of No. 1 Indiana on Thursday, will try to build on that momentum at sputtering No. 18 Minnesota, which has dropped five of its last seven games, including a 61-50 setback at Michigan State on Wednesday. It's the second meeting of the season between the Big Ten rivals. The Golden Gophers won the first encounter, 84-67, at Illinois on Jan. 9, handing the Illini their first home loss of the season in the process.

Illinois has gone just 2-5 since the first matchup with the Gophers but Thursday's upset of the Hoosiers could just be the tonic to spark a turnaround for a team that looked like it would be a legitimate Big Ten challenger after whipping Butler, 78-61, to win the EA Sports Maui Invitational in November. In fact, after Thursday's victory over the Hoosiers, which came by way of a Tyler Griffey buzzer-beating layup on an inbounds pass with nine-tenths of a second remaining, the Illini now own four victories over teams currently rated in the top-15: No. 1 Indiana, No. 6 Gonzaga, No. 10 Ohio State and No. 14 Butler.

California Golden Bears at Arizona Wildcats (-13, 132)

Arizona looks to extend its winning streak to five on Sunday when the 7th-ranked Wildcats host California, which has lost 22 of the last 27 meetings in the series. Arizona, which took over sole possession of first place in the Pac-12 without even playing a game on Thursday, has four home games and four road games left in the regular season. California is mired in a five-way tie for fifth place, three games behind Arizona.

The Bears lost 66-62 to Arizona State on Thursday and failed to build on home wins last week over Oregon State and Oregon. Junior guard Allen Crabbe still leads the Pac-12 scoring at 19.3 points per game, but he’s shooting 25 percent (6-for-24) from 3-point range over the last three games. The Bears will need a complete effort from their defense after struggling early against Arizona State. The Wildcats are second in the Pac-12 in scoring at 74.7 points per game.

February's best and worst college basketball bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

February is a make-or-break month for college basketball teams. Some coaches are trying to get their squads to peak just in time for the postseason while others are scrambling for a quick fix in the final weeks of the schedule.

We look back over the past five seasons (2007-08 to 2011-12) to find out which college hoops programs rise to the occasion and which ones crumble under the pressure in February.

Best ATS

Records from February games only from 2007-08 to 2011-12.

Indiana State Sycamores (28-11-1 ATS, 23-17 SU)

Just like their most famous alum, Larry Bird, the Sycamores come up big for bettors in the crunch. Indiana State has gone 6-2 ATS in February in each of the past four seasons and is off to a 1-1 SU and ATS start this month, heading into Saturday’s date with Southern Illinois.

Auburn Tigers (26-10-1 ATS, 14-23 SU)

Auburn isn’t a perennial power in the SEC but it has been the conference's most consistent winning bet during the month of February. Since 2008, the Tigers have covered in 70 percent of their February games despite posting a losing record. They went 6-2 ATS last year and are 2-0 ATS to start this month.

Princeton Tigers (26-19 ATS, 27-18 SU)

Got nothing better to do on a cold Friday night in February? Try betting on the Tigers. Princeton, a permanent contender in the Ivy League, has turned up the intensity on the second month of the year. The Tigers went 7-2 ATS in February 2010 and posted a 6-2 ATS mark last February. This year, Princeton is 1-1 ATS going into Friday’s game with Brown.

Notables: Bradley (25-15 ATS), BYU (25-10 ATS), Old Dominion (25-15 ATS), St. Louis (25-12-1 ATS), Texas A&M (25-12 ATS).


Worst ATS

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (9-26-2 ATS, 7-30 SU)

Things fall apart for the Jackets in February. Georgia Tech used to be in the mix in the ACC but has fallen on hard times in recent seasons. The Yellow Jackets went 2-6 SU and ATS in February last season and don’t appear to be climbing out of the ACC basement anytime soon, at 2-7 SU and 3-6 ATS in conference play this year.

Air Force Falcons (11-23-1 ATS, 7-28 SU)

Life is tough in the Mountain West Conference. The so-called “mid major” could send as many as five teams to the Big Dance this year and has been on the upswing for past few seasons. So it’s understandable why the Falcons would suck so much in February. The Fly Boys have been getting better, going 6-7-1 ATS in the past two Februarys and owning a 1-1 ATS mark this month.

Providence Friars (11-24-1 ATS, 8-28 SU)

Similar to Air Force’s woes, the Friars face wave after wave of NCAA-bound talent in conference play, eventually hitting a breaking point in February. Providence has long been the Big East whipping boy but actually came through for bettors last year with a 5-3 ATS mark in February. The Friars are getting the job done once again this month, starting with a 2-0 SU and ATS mark.

Notables: Wright State (11-25-5 ATS), East Carolina (12-25-1 ATS), South Carolina (12-25-1 ATS), Tulane (12-23-2 ATS), Villanova (12-27-1 ATS).
