What Does This Table Mean:

BTB Line - The BTB college basketball power rating system is based on recent game results and can be used to compare the relative strength of the two basketball teams involved. The power line is calculated using both teams ratings and home field advantage. When the power line differs significantly from the current line a pick on that side is recommended. **Does not take injuries into account**

Consensus - One of the growing resources utilized by sports bettors is the public betting information offered by a variety of sportsbooks. The College Basketball Betting Consensus from the Sportsbooks shows what percentage of bets are on each side of the pointspread, total or moneyline. The information can be especially valuable in high profile games.

Opening Line - The very first set of basketball odds or lines that is listed for a particular game or event. The opening line is essentially the first chance for the betting public to see what the linemakers think of a game.

Current Line -The latest line received from the sportsbooks

Key Numbers - The most important to look for are four and seven. Four makes a game a two-possession game, and seven makes it a three-possession game. Late into games, seven is usually when the opposition will lay off the gas, and your favorite can feel good. However, in comeback scenarios, if there is still enough time on the clock, seven is when the opposition can really feel it, and the pressure begins to mount on the team with the lead. Seven is also the spread that results in a push the most, so if there is a number worth buying the extra half point in your favor, it would be seven.
