NCAAB – TRENDS OF THE DAY
With Christmas and New Year’s Eve holidays behind us, we will continue to bring you the best active trends and help you with the “homework” by saving you some time that would usually be spent in examining every single matchup. If you still have time for that, you can thoroughly do it here. Tuesday brings us 40 matchups in NCAA basketball Division I, including the pair of H2H duels between ranked teams that we are all looking forward to seeing. Let’s take a closer look.
The most interesting games are: Texas Christian (12-1) at Baylor (10-3), Texas Tech (12-1) at Kansas (11-2), Georgetown (10-3) at DePaul (7-7), Florida (9-4) at Texas A&M (11-2), Auburn (12-1) at Tennessee (9-3), Penn St. (11-4) at Maryland (12-3), Michigan (12-3) at Iowa (9-6) and Butler (12-3) at Xavier (14-1).
- The Nittany Lions are 1-9-1 in their last 11 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
The Penn St. Nittany Lions are visiting the Maryland Terrapins who are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games after allowing less than 50 points in their previous game (they limited UMBC to only 45 points).
- The Volunteers are 9-1 in their last 10 games after scoring more than 90 points in their previous game.
The Tennessee Volunteers got edged by the Razorbacks on Saturday after OT but they still scored 93 points in that duel. They are also 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600 (Auburn Tigers are 2-0 on the road this season).
- The Musketeers are 18-5 in their last 23 games overall.
The duel between the Big East foes is something we’re all looking forward to and the Musketeers will have the ATS edge by my opinion, especially if we know that the Bulldogs are 1-5 ATS in their last six road games. Butler is also 1-4-1 ATS in last six showdowns in Xavier.
- The Catamounts are 7-18-2 in their last 27 games following a straight up win.
The duel between Harvard Crimson and Vermont Catamounts should stage out an easy home team ATS win. The Catamounts are also 7-15 ATS in their last 22 non-conference games while the Crimson currently stands at the 36-17-2 record in their last 55 duels following an ATS win.
- The Terriers are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up win.
The Boston U Terriers snapped the three-game losing streak against the Navy on Friday activating the aforementioned trend that makes perfect sense against the Bucknell Bison who are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
- Over is 14-4-1 in Wolverines last 19 games following an ATS loss.
The Michigan Wolverines recorded a loss an ATS loss against Jacksonville on Saturday and history suggests that they like to score a lot after those kinds of games. The pick becomes a no-brainer when we put the fact that the Hawkeyes are 11-5 in Over in last 16 home games.
- Over is 13-6 in Bears last 19 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
The matchups between ranked teams can usually go either way when it comes to the straight up and ATS win making the pick in Totals the wisest choice. The duel between Baylor Bears and TCU Horned Frogs is a high-scoring red alert because, besides the aforementioned Bears’ tendency, the Horned Frogs are 7-3 in Over in last 10 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
- Under is 9-4 in Hoyas last 13 overall.
The Georgetown Hoyas have a tendency to go in Under this season. They recorded an ATS win on Saturday against Marquette making the Under even stronger option having in mind the fact that they are 4-1 in Under in last five duels following an ATS win. Their next opponent, DePaul Blue Demons are 4-1 in Under in last five games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
- Under is 9-2 in Aggies last 11 games following a straight up loss of more than 20 points.
The Texas A&M Aggies got edged by Alabama Crimson Tide, 79-57 on Saturday. When we add the fact that they are also 10-2 in Under in last 12 Tuesday games, Under in Totals against Florida Gators who are 5-1 in Under in last six overall games sounds like the only lucid option.
