1/28: South Florida +2 4* Win
Seton Hall has played a ton of good teams in the Big east of late and have had some good wins along the way so you will have to give them a pass if they have a hard time getting up for South Florida and instead are distracted by the Pro Bowl and everything else in Florida this week. The Bulls are 37-14 ATS in their last 51 games following a straight up win and get the win here.
1/27: Penn St +1 2* loss
This is an early game that tips at 6:30 eastern so keep an eye out for that. There teams always play close and now that Penn St is at home there is no doubt they win this game. Illinois is a horrible favorite and bad against the Nittany Lions. The underdog is 12-2-2 ATS in the last 16 meetings and Illinois is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Take Penn St to win!
1/26: Boston College +3 2* Win
The road in the ACC has proven to be a tough place to play. Clemson has been a tough team to figure out as they have looked great one night and then horrible the next. The Tigers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. Atlantic Coast. The home team has dominated this series and they keep that trend alive with a Eagle win at home.
1/21: Arkansas +1.5 4* loss
The Hogs have a good basketball team but you never know what team will show up tonight. AT home against one of the top teams in the SEC should bring out the best in Arkansas.
The Gators have struggled of recent in Arkansas as they are 0-3-1 ATS in the last four and they are 3-7 ATS as road favorites with the line between ½ and 6.5. The Hogs are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 as home underdogs and are ready to play tough. Play the Hogs at home as the small pups to pull off the upset over the Gators.
1/19: Alabama +2 5* loss
Alabama is off a horrible game hat was embarrassing at home as they were stomped by the Hogs. The Vols have been smashing SEC opponents and are on a great run, but this team is young. After three great home games all ending with a W and off an OT win, the Vols are going to fall. The Volunteers are 0-8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games following three or more consecutive home games. They have struggled in the past playing the Tide as they are 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings and 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Alabama. Take Alabama to pull off the upset.
1/18: Notre Dame +4 2 * loss
Syracuse is one of the best teams in the country and they have played some very tough games lately and that should leave them drained for tonight’s game against the Irish. The Irish have won 12 at home and this will be the third straight road game for the orange. The underdog is 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings and the Fighting Irish are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog of 0.5-6.5. Take the Irish to get the win!
1/16: Northwestern +6.5 2 * Win
Purdue is a sinking ship and since the loss to Wisconsin they have played horribly losing a big lead to Ohio St at home and now are chalk in a Big Ten clash. The Wildcats are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall and play great basketball at home and Purdue is 1-4 ATS in the last five against the Big Ten. Take the cats at home.
1/15: Portland St +2 1* Win
This line follows suit with the first game. Portland St has just 7 wins but is only a two point dog to Northern Colorado. Northern Colorado always plays to the level of their opponent which is why the Bears are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a losing record. That trend continues and they get upset here.
1/12: Florida +2 3* Loss
Kentucky will get a true test when the head down to Florida to battle the Gators. Florida has proven to be a tough test at home where they are 7-1 on the season. This has also been a bad venue for the Cats to play in. The Wildcats are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Florida and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings. Kentucky keeps it close but Florida gets the upset and the win!
1/11: Oklahoma +1 2 * Win
In this rivalry anything can happen and that explains why OU is just a one point dog playing against Ok St although OK St has won 13 games this year. These games are always close and OU has the edge at free throws and they have a deeper bench. The Underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and look for that trend to continue as OU wins outright!
1/10: Arizona +2 5* Win
Arizona takes on 22nd ranked Washington today in a great match-up. Washington is having a great year with ten wins but is winless on the road at 0-2. They also struggle as a favorite. The Huskies are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a road favorite of 0.5-6.5 and 1-6 ATS as the last 7 as a favorite. The Wildcats are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS loss and get the win today as the best dog on the board!
1/7: South Alabama +3 4 * Push
South Alabama faces Western Kentucky on Thursday night and they have double revenge for two losses last year. Western Kentucky is just 5-7 ATS this year and they have yet to win a game on the road but still managed to be tagged as a road chalk. The difference will be a deep bench and free throw shooting as South Alabama wins as a live dog!
1/5: Akron Zips +1 5* Loss
Sometimes the most profitable games with the biggest edge are the smallest games on the slate. Not much will be said about the game between Rhode Island and Akron but it is worth a look. Rhode Island is off a huge win over Ok St and will get A-10 play after this game with Akron, a true letdown spot. The Rams are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win and the Zips are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. Take the Zips for a big five unit play!
1/2: Rutgers +5 4* Loss
The Bearcats made the world take notice by beating the Huskies of Connecticut. That sets them up for a huge letdown tonight and they are not a very good road team. They are 0-2 on the road and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Scarlet Knights are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and will get the upset win here.
