    [B][I]Monday’s Tip Sheet
    December 3, 2017[/I][/B]

    The highlight of Monday night’s betting board for college basketball in an in-state tilt between two bitter rivals when Florida State goes on the road to face No. 6 Florida from Gainesville.

    In other action, the Big Ten offers a pair of early season conference games with Michigan on the road against Ohio State and Penn State playing host to Wisconsin.

    [B]Florida State Seminoles at No. 6 Florida Gators (ESPN2, 9:00 p.m. ET)

    Opening Odds: Florida -9.5

    Betting Matchup[/B]

    The Seminoles come into Monday night’s matchup with a straight-up 6-0 record while going 5-0 against the spread in games with a posted betting line. The total went OVER the closing 140-point line in Saturday’s 78-73 victory on the road against Rutgers and it has gone OVER in four of the five games with a total line. Florida State is 2-0 both SU and ATS on the road this season.

    Sophomore guard CJ Walker scored a game-high 24 points in Saturday’s win while going 6-for-11 from field. The Seminoles as a team shot 44.8 percent from the field with a 6-for-16 effort from three-point range. Overall, Florida State is averaging 88.8 points per game and it ranks 19th in the nation when it comes to assists with 18.7 a game. Junior guard Terance Mann leads the team in scoring with 15.3 PPG and all told there are five players on this roster that are averaging at least 11 points a game.

    Florida’s SU five-game winning streak to start the new season came to an end on Saturday in an 87-84 loss to Duke as a 2 ½-point home underdog. It is now 4-2 ATS through its first six games and the total has gone OVER in five of those contests. The closing total line in the loss to the Blue Devils was set at 163 points. The Gators are 4-1 ATS this season when closing as favorites and they have gone 2-1 ATS on their home court.

    The Gators remain the highest scoring team in the nation with an average of 99.5 PPG. They fall to 29th in assists with 18.2 and they rank 50th in the country in rebounds with 40.2 a game. They are ranked much farther down the list on the other end of the court when it comes to defensive scoring with a points-allowed average of 80.7. Junior guard Jalen Hudson leads Florida in scoring with 21.7 PPG and in Saturday’s loss to Duke he went 10-for-20 from the field to score a team-high 24 points. Florida shot 42.3 percent from the field in that game as opposed to a 48.8 shooting percentage on the year. It is connecting on 46.0 percent of its shots from three-point range.

    [B]Big Ten Bonus Games

    Michigan Wolverines at Ohio State Buckeyes (FOX Sports 1, 6:30 p.m. ET)

    Opening Odds: Ohio State -1[/B]

    Michigan has gone 7-2 SU in its first nine games with losses against LSU and North Carolina. It has gone an even 4-4 ATS in games with a posted betting line with the total staying UNDER in five of the eight games. The Wolverines opened play in the Big Ten with Saturday’s 69-55 victory against Indiana as 7 ½-point home favorites. They jumped out to 13-point lead at the half behind freshman guard Jordan Poole, who ended the game with a team-high 19 points.

    The Buckeyes come into this game at 6-3 SU with a 1-0 record in conference play after beating Wisconsin 83-58 as 8 ½-point underdogs to mirror the football team’s success against the Badgers in Saturday’s conference championship. Ohio State is 3-4 ATS through seven basketball games with a posted spread and the total has stayed UNDER in five of those games. Four Buckeyes scored in double figures in the win against Wisconsin with freshman forward Kaleb Wesson leading the way with 19 points.

    [B]Wisconsin Badgers at Penn State Nittany Lions (ESPN2, 7:00 p.m. ET)

    Opening Odds: Penn State -4[/B]

    The Badgers are off to a rough start with just three SU victories in their first eight games. They have only been able to cover in two of seven games with a betting line and the total has stayed UNDER in four of their last five games after going OVER in their first two contests with a closing total line. Freshman guard Brad Davidson posted a team-high 16 points in Saturday’s loss and both Nate Reuvers and Kobe King added 10 points to the losing cause off the bench. Wisconsin is averaging 68.1 PPG.

    Penn State has come out on the winning end in seven of its first nine games including a big 77-73 road victory against Iowa on Saturday in a game that ended as a PUSH with the Lions favored by four points. The total stayed UNDER 152 points in that game and it has stayed UNDER in five of seven games with a betting line. Their record ATS this season stands at 4-2-1. Sophomore forward Lamar Stevens scored a team-high 22 points in his team’s Big Ten opener and he leads Penn State in scoring this season with 15.2 PPG.

    Monday’s Tip Sheet
    December 3, 2017

    The highlight of Monday night’s betting board for college basketball in an in-state tilt between two bitter rivals when Florida State goes on the road to face No. 6 Florida from Gainesville.

    In other action, the Big Ten offers a pair of early season conference games with Michigan on the road against Ohio State and Penn State playing host to Wisconsin.

    Florida State Seminoles at No. 6 Florida Gators (ESPN2, 9:00 p.m. ET)

    Opening Odds: Florida -9.5

    Betting Matchup

    The Seminoles come into Monday night’s matchup with a straight-up 6-0 record while going 5-0 against the spread in games with a posted betting line. The total went OVER the closing 140-point line in Saturday’s 78-73 victory on the road against Rutgers and it has gone OVER in four of the five games with a total line. Florida State is 2-0 both SU and ATS on the road this season.

    Sophomore guard CJ Walker scored a game-high 24 points in Saturday’s win while going 6-for-11 from field. The Seminoles as a team shot 44.8 percent from the field with a 6-for-16 effort from three-point range. Overall, Florida State is averaging 88.8 points per game and it ranks 19th in the nation when it comes to assists with 18.7 a game. Junior guard Terance Mann leads the team in scoring with 15.3 PPG and all told there are five players on this roster that are averaging at least 11 points a game.

    Florida’s SU five-game winning streak to start the new season came to an end on Saturday in an 87-84 loss to Duke as a 2 ½-point home underdog. It is now 4-2 ATS through its first six games and the total has gone OVER in five of those contests. The closing total line in the loss to the Blue Devils was set at 163 points. The Gators are 4-1 ATS this season when closing as favorites and they have gone 2-1 ATS on their home court.

    The Gators remain the highest scoring team in the nation with an average of 99.5 PPG. They fall to 29th in assists with 18.2 and they rank 50th in the country in rebounds with 40.2 a game. They are ranked much farther down the list on the other end of the court when it comes to defensive scoring with a points-allowed average of 80.7. Junior guard Jalen Hudson leads Florida in scoring with 21.7 PPG and in Saturday’s loss to Duke he went 10-for-20 from the field to score a team-high 24 points. Florida shot 42.3 percent from the field in that game as opposed to a 48.8 shooting percentage on the year. It is connecting on 46.0 percent of its shots from three-point range.

    Betting Trends

    — The Seminoles are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team from the SEC, but they have failed to cover in five of their last six games played on a Monday. The total has gone OVER in four of their last five games against a team from this conference.

    — The Gators have gone 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games against the ACC, but they improve to 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games coming off a SU loss. The total has gone OVER in 10 of their last 12 Monday games.

    — Head-to-head in this in-state rivalry, the underdog is 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings and the total has gone OVER in the last three meetings. Florida State has a 3-1 SU edge in the last four games while going a perfect 4-0 ATS.

    Big Ten Bonus Games

    Michigan Wolverines at Ohio State Buckeyes (FOX Sports 1, 6:30 p.m. ET)

    Opening Odds: Ohio State -1

    Michigan has gone 7-2 SU in its first nine games with losses against LSU and North Carolina. It has gone an even 4-4 ATS in games with a posted betting line with the total staying UNDER in five of the eight games. The Wolverines opened play in the Big Ten with Saturday’s 69-55 victory against Indiana as 7 ½-point home favorites. They jumped out to 13-point lead at the half behind freshman guard Jordan Poole, who ended the game with a team-high 19 points.

    The Buckeyes come into this game at 6-3 SU with a 1-0 record in conference play after beating Wisconsin 83-58 as 8 ½-point underdogs to mirror the football team’s success against the Badgers in Saturday’s conference championship. Ohio State is 3-4 ATS through seven basketball games with a posted spread and the total has stayed UNDER in five of those games. Four Buckeyes scored in double figures in the win against Wisconsin with freshman forward Kaleb Wesson leading the way with 19 points.

    Wisconsin Badgers at Penn State Nittany Lions (ESPN2, 7:00 p.m. ET)

    Opening Odds: Penn State -4

    The Badgers are off to a rough start with just three SU victories in their first eight games. They have only been able to cover in two of seven games with a betting line and the total has stayed UNDER in four of their last five games after going OVER in their first two contests with a closing total line. Freshman guard Brad Davidson posted a team-high 16 points in Saturday’s loss and both Nate Reuvers and Kobe King added 10 points to the losing cause off the bench. Wisconsin is averaging 68.1 PPG.

    Penn State has come out on the winning end in seven of its first nine games including a big 77-73 road victory against Iowa on Saturday in a game that ended as a PUSH with the Lions favored by four points. The total stayed UNDER 152 points in that game and it has stayed UNDER in five of seven games with a betting line. Their record ATS this season stands at 4-2-1. Sophomore forward Lamar Stevens scored a team-high 22 points in his team’s Big Ten opener and he leads Penn State in scoring this season with 15.2 PPG.

    [B][I]Top 25 Capsules
    December 4, 2017[/I][/B]

    GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Terance Mann scored 25 points, CJ Walker added 17 and Florida State upset No. 5 Florida 83-66 on Monday night to remain undefeated.

    The Seminoles (7-0) also extended their winning streak against the Gators (5-2) to four, their longest in the 68-game history of the series.

    Florida State’s length and athleticism posed problems all night. The Seminoles altered shots, forced turnovers, controlled the boards and didn’t allow Florida many clean looks, especially from long range.

    Coach Mike White pleaded with his Gators to be more physical at halftime, but they didn’t respond. Now, Florida has a two-game losing streak and questions about their lofty ranking.

    The Gators entered the game with the nation’s top offense, having averaged 99.6 points in their first six games. But they went cold down the stretch against top-ranked Duke in the Phil Knight Invitational in Portland, Oregon last week, and never found a rhythm against the Seminoles.

    Florida blew a 17-point lead with 10 minutes left against the Blue Devils and lost 87-84. Big man Marvin Bagley III dominated Florida inside in that one.

    The 6-foot-6 Mann was the main culprit Monday.

    Mann made 11 of 17 shots and added eight rebounds. Every time Florida looked like it would make a run, Mann answered on the other end. The junior had a tip-in and two three-point plays in the final 8 minutes.

    Florida guards Jalen Hudson (16 points), KeVaughn Allen (15), Egor Koulechov (11) and Chris Chiozza and were a combined 13 of 40 from the field, including 4 of 20 from 3-point range. Chiozza was scoreless until making three free throws down the stretch.

    [B]No. 23 BAYLOR 84, SAM HOUSTON STATE 56[/B]

    WACO, Texas (AP) – Jo Lual-Acuil had 15 points and 11 rebounds, leading six players who scored in double figures for Baylor during a victory over Sam Houston State.

    The Bears (6-2) lost their only two games last week to Top 25 opponents and slipped seven spots in the new poll released Monday.

    Baylor broke open the game early with a 12-0 run that made it 24-11. Another 12-0 spurt early in the second half stretched the Bears’ lead to 52-27.

    Nuni Omot added 15 points and Tristan Clark had 14 on 6-of-7 shooting. Manu Lecomte scored 12 points while Jake Lindsey and Mark Vital had 11 each.

    Chris Galbreath led the Bearkats (5-4) with 24 points and 10 rebounds. The senior had Sam Houston State’s first eight points, but didn’t score again until the second half. He was the only player in double figures for the Bearkats as they fell to 1-4 against Division I competition.

    [B][I]Armadillo: Tuesday’s six-pack[/I][/B]

    — Steelers 23, Bengals 20— Cincy blew a 17-0 first-half lead; they had 173 yards in penalties.

    — Ohio State 71, Michigan 62— Wolverines blew a 20-point first half lead.

    — Wisconsin 64, Penn State 63— Badgers are just 2-5 in their last seven games.

    — Indiana 77, Iowa 64— Hawkeyes are struggling at 4-5, 0-2 in conference.

    — Florida State 83, Florida 66— Impressive road win for the Seminoles.

    — I’m curious if the NFL puts Steelers-Bengals on in primetime again next year, after some of the vicious, WWE-type antics in last night’s game.

    [B][I]Tuesday’s Tip Sheet
    December 5, 2017[/I][/B]

    [B]**Gonzaga vs. Villanova**[/B]

    — These storied programs will collide tonight at Madison Square Garden in New York City at the Jimmy V Classic. As of early this morning, most betting shops had Villanova (8-0 straight up, 6-2 against the spread) installed as a five-point favorite with a total of 148.

    — Jay Wright’s team is ranked No. 1 at KenPom.com, fourth in the Associated Press’s Top 25 and 12th in the RPI Rankings. Villanova has a trio of victories over RPI Top-50 opponents, beating No. 10 Tennessee (85-76), No. 26 Northern Iowa (64-50) and No. 27 Western Kentucky (66-58). All three of these wins came at the Battle 4 Atlantis, including the spread-covering scalp of NIU in the finals on Nov. 24. The Wildcats took the cash against the Panthers as 13.5-point favorites. Junior Mikal Bridges scored a game-high 18 points, making 8-of-14 shots from the field. Bridges finished with seven rebounds, one steal, one blocked shot and one assists without committing a turnover. Jalen Brunson (6-9 FGs, 3-6 three-pointers) added 16 points, four rebounds, two steals and four assists compared to only one turnover. Phil Booth contributed 12 points, delivering one of his three treys on five launches when No. Iowa cut the deficit to six with a surge late in the second half.

    — Villanova had to overcome a 12-point halftime deficit to clip UT, once again narrowly covering the number as an eight-point ‘chalk’ in the 85-76 triumph. The Wildcats held the Volunteers scoreless for more than four minutes to start the second half, and they needed less than five minutes to take the lead at 50-48 on Brunson’s 3-pointer with 15:03 remaining. With 52 ticks left, Tennessee was down only three and it was behind by just six with 24 seconds remaining. But Villanova hooked up its backers when Donte DiVencenzo dunked with 14 ticks left on a run-out after a missed 3-ball by UT.

    — Since its return from the Bahamas, Wright’s team beat Penn 90-62 as a 21-point favorite on Nov. 29. Then this past Saturday, Villanova went into Hagan Arena and blasted Saint Joseph’s 94-53 as a 14.5-point road favorite. The 147 combined points slithered ‘under’ the 149-point total. Bridges scored a game-high 18 points to go with nine rebounds, two steals, one block and two assists without a turnover. Bridges knocked down 4-of-7 from downtown. Booth finished with 17 points, eight boards and six assists compared to merely one turnover. Omari Spellman drained 4-of-5 launches from 3-point range and finished with 16 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots.

    — Bridges and Brunson are both scoring at a team-high 17.9 points-per-game clip. Brunson is shooting at incredible rates both from the field (64.6%) and 3-point range (51.7%). The junior guard has a 36/9 assists-to-turnovers ratio and is averaging 1.0 steals per game. Bridges (56.7% FGs, 50.0% 3’s) has a team-high 20 steals, 11 blocks and is pulling down 6.2 RPG. Spellman (9.0 PPG, 7.4 RPG) has a team-best 17 rejections.

    — Gonzaga (7-1 SU, 3-2 ATS) is ranked No. 11 at KenPom.com, 12th in the AP and No. 74 in the RPI. Mark Few’s team has three RPI Top-100 wins over No. 63 Ohio State (86-59), No. 73 Texas (76-71) and No. 51 Creighton (91-74). The Bulldogs’ only defeat came against Florida in the semifinals of the PK80 Invitational. The Gators won 111-105 in double overtime as two-point favorites at Moda Center in Portland. Johnathan Williams had 39 points and 12 rebounds vs. UF, converting 16-of-22 shots from the field. All five starters for the ‘Zags scored in double figures, with Killian Tillie and Josh Perkins contributing 17 points apiece.

    — Gonzaga captured a 91-74 win over Creighton as a nine-point home favorite this past Friday night at the McCarthey Athletic Center in Spokane. The Bluejays led by seven at intermission, but the Bulldogs pulled away with a 54-30 advantage in the final 20 minutes. Tillie, a 6’10” sophomore forward, produced 22 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks and a pair of steals. Senior guard Silas Melson finished with 21 points, three boards, three assists and three steals, burying 7-of-8 attempts from the field and 4-of-5 from long distance. Zach Norvell, the redshirt freshman guard, hit four triples en route to a career-high 21-points.

    — Gonzaga freshman forward Corey Kispert is ‘questionable’ tonight with an ankle injury. Kispert sat out the win over Creighton. He is averaging 10.4 points and 3.7 rebounds per game. Kispert, who has a 9/4 assists-to-turnovers ratio and has four steals, has made 54.0 percent of his shots from the field and 37.9 percent of his attempts from downtown.

    — Gonzaga has six players scoring in double figures and a seventh (Rui Hachimura) is scoring at a 9.8 PPG clip. Williams is averaging 15.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game. The Bulldogs are ranked fourth in the nation in scoring (92.9 PPG), 15th in FG percentage (51.2%) and 47th in 3-point percentage (39.7%).

    — The ‘over’ has hit in three consecutive Gonzaga games to improve to 3-2 overall.

    — Totals have been an overall wash for Villanova (4-4) this year but going back to last season, the ‘under’ is on a 23-11 run in the Wildcats’ last 34 lined contests.

    — Tip-off on ESPN is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Eastern.
    [B]
    **Virginia at West Virginia**[/B]

    — West Virginia (7-1 SU, 2-3 ATS) is unbeaten in four home games with a 1-0 spread record. As of early this morning, The Mountaineers were listed as 3.5-point home favorites for tonight’s showdown vs. Virginia. The total was 135.5 points.

    — These teams met at MSG in NYC two seasons ago, with UVA capturing a 70-54 win over WVU as a 4.5-point favorite. The 124 combined points dropped ‘under’ the 135-point total.

    — FSU went into the O-Dome on Monday night and trounced Florida 83-66 as a nine-point road underdog, hooking up money-line supporters with a sweet +375 payout (paid $375 on $100 wagers). The Seminoles beat UF a fourth straight time for the first time in the 68-year history of the hoops rivalry. They dominated the glass to the tune of a 51-34 advantage. Terance Mann led FSU with 25 points and eight rebounds. The ‘Noles improved to 7-0, while UF fell to 5-2 with both of its losses coming to ACC opponents. Jalen Hudson had a team-best 16 points for the Gators in the losing effort.

    — Florida had seen the ‘over’ hit in all five of its lined games, but the 149 combined points fell ‘under’ the 164.5-point total. UF head coach Mike White told the media at his postgame presser, “Tonight was the epitome of soft. They threw the first three or four punches and did not let up. Last year’s team was a lot tougher than this year’s team. This year’s team is a lot more skilled and scores better.”

    – — Wisconsin picked up a much-needed 64-63 win Monday night at Penn State. The Badgers won outright as five-point underdogs to improve to 4-5 on the season. They cashed money-line tickets in the +190 range.

    — The late game at the Jimmy V Classic will tip approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of Gonzaga-Villanova. This matchup will feature a pair of former Big East rivals UConn (6-2 SU, 1-4 ATS) and Syracuse (6-1 SU, 2-4 ATS). As of early this morning, most spots had the Orange listed as a five-point favorite. The total was 131.5 points for this game that’ll be televised on ESPN.

    — The ‘under’ is 5-1 overall for the ‘Cuse, which is off its first loss of the season. Kansas knocked off the Orange 76-60 as a 10-point favorite in Miami at American Airlines Arena.

    — Syracuse guard Geno Thorpe left the program for personal reasons, the school announced Friday before facing KU. Thorpe was a grad transfer from South Florida who averaged 15.1 PPG for the Bulls last season. He played in six games for the ‘Cuse, averaging 6.0 PPG in an average of 14.3 minutes of playing time. Thorpe played a season-low four minutes in his last game for the Orange, a 72-70 win over Maryland last week.

    — UConn redshirt freshman guard Alterique Gilbert is in danger of missing a third straight game due to shoulder soreness. Gilbert, who is listed as ‘questionable,’ is averaging 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals per game. He was scoring at a 10.3 PPG clip before underdoing season-ending shoulder surgery last December.
