NCAAB – TRENDS OF THE DAY
There has been some time since Wednesday’s have been so fruitful when it comes to the number of showdowns on the menu but as we’ve said before, the things are heating up as the month of March approaches. A total number of duels that are scheduled for today is 44, and you can check every single of them here. But, if you’re short on time, you can check out exactly eight directions that we’ve picked for you to go that are listed down below.
Here are a couple of most interesting duels today including on H2H matchup between top-25 ranked teams: Louisiana State (13-9) at Florida (15-8), Virginia (22-1) at Florida State (17-6), St. John’s (11-13) at Villanova (22-1), Kansas State (16-7) at Texas (15-8), Ohio St. (20-5) at Purdue (23-2), Texas A&M (15-8) at Auburn (21-2), Iowa State (12-10) at Texas Tech (19-4) and UNLV (16-7) at Nevada (20-4).
- The Runnin’ Rebels are 4-20-3 in their last 27 road games.
The UNLV Rebels own an extremely negative ATS record that we just can’t ignore, and the fact that they’re squaring off with Nevada Wolf Pack that is 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight home games vs. a team with a winning road record makes this a mismatch. Pick Nevada.
- The Tigers are 13-3 in their last 16 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
The Auburn Tigers are one of the hottest teams in NCAAB at the moment that is constantly climbing up on the Polls’ rankings. Their next opponents are Texas A&M Aggies who are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games following an ATS win, making Tigers’ ATS success almost certain.
- The Longhorns are 6-1 in their last seven conference matchups.
The Texas Longhorns are currently on a winning streak inside the conference slate and today they’re clashing at home with Kansas State Wildcats with ATS line set at 5.0, favoring them. The Wildcats on the other side are 3-8 ATS in last 11 games following an ATS loss, so pick the Longhorns.
- The Red Storm is 5-2 in their last seven Wednesday games.
Under the impression of St. John’s heroic win over No. 4 Duke on Saturday, the ATS line that favors the Villanova Wildcats at 17.0 points seems just too high. I know that Red Storm’s potential ATS win will be an upset here but that’s the direction I advise you to go.
- Under is 10-4 in Red Raiders last 14 vs. Big 12.
As usual, we start our Totals list with the matchup that has the biggest low-scoring potential of the day. On Wednesday, it’s the duel between Iowa State Cyclones and Texas Tech Raiders. Besides aforementioned tendency, the Red Raiders are also 16-7 in Under in last 23 games overall while the Cyclones stand at 7-3 in Under in last 10 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
- Under is 8-2 in Boilermakers last 10 games overall.
The showdown between Ohio St. Buckeyes and Purdue Boilermakers feature the teams with solid defenses according to both team’s trends, and obvious pick here is to go for Under. The Boilermakers are 4-1 in Under in last five home games, while the Buckeyes stand at 6-1 in Under in last seven duels vs. Big Ten.
- Under is 15-2 in Cavaliers last 17 vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
The best defense of the league equals Under in Totals. It’s simple as that, especially when they’re facing the team that is for example 15-3 in Under in last 18 duels vs. the squad with a winning straight up record, the Florida State Seminoles.
- Over is 21-8 in Tigers last 29 vs. Southeastern.
For the conclusion of our list, we’ve saved a game with a strong high-scoring potential. The duel between Louisiana State Tigers that are beside aforementioned trend also 5-0 in Over in last five games overall, and Florida Gators that are 5-1 in Over in last six duels vs. a team with a winning straight up record has that kind of a potential. Go Over.
