  • BookMaker.eu Could tired legs play a role when the Oregon Ducks play host to the UCLA Bruins on Sunday night? Dana Altman’s kids secured a marathon overtime win against the USC Trojans on Thursday night a game removed from needing overtime to dispose of the Washington Huskies in Seattle. As for UCLA, it looks like it’s recently started to figure things out since dropping three straight to Washington State, USC and Stanford all in non-covering fashion at online sportsbooks. Does that mean that we should just ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Assembly Hall will be at a fever pitch come Sunday afternoon when the Indiana Hoosiers attempt to upset another ranked team in Big Ten play when Mark Turgeon’s No. 17 Maryland Terrapins come to town. Both clubs enter this tilt off big wins. The Terps got more than they bargained for in Evanston to kick off the week, but Jalen Smith and Aaron Wiggins came up huge in the second half to allow for the team to log a second straight win and cover to remain in the thick of the conference title race. As... 

  • BookMaker.eu Getting the showcase treatment on Saturday night will be the No. 1 ranked Baylor Bears who will be venturing into unchartered territory to Gainesville where the Florida Gators have made minced meat of its recent opposition. Mike White’s kids will be taking to their home hardwood in an ornery mood as well after dropping a tough decision in Baton Rouge to the LSU Tigers last time out. That said, no team has excelled more than Baylor in the Big 12/SEC Challenge with it coming out on top five of the... 

  • BookMaker.eu The No. 18 Texas Tech Red Raiders have been unable to build upon the success the program experienced in last year’s NCAA tournament. Chris Beard’s kids have managed a 12-6 record to this point of the season, but have gone on to cost CBB bettors money at online sportsbooks by managing just eight pointspread covers in those matchups. On top of that, they’ve failed to come through against any team faced with a pulse. They’ll be looking to remedy that on Saturday night in front of what will no doubt... 

  • BookMaker.eu The last time the Tennessee Volunteers and Kansas Jayhawks crossed paths on the hardwood, Dedric Lawson helped lead Bill Self’s squad to the thrilling 87-81 win in overtime as 3-point favorites in the finals of the NIT Season Tip-Off at the Barclays Center a season ago. While he’s no longer on the team, Kansas still ranks out amongst the best teams in the country currently checking in as the No. 1 team in the country per the most recent Pomeroy Ratings. The same can’t and won’t be said about Ric... 

  • BookMaker.eu Fade the Baylor Bears they said! There’s no way they show up against Iowa State after winning in the Phog they said! Its easy money they said! Well, it’s back to the drawing board for those that thought fading the No. 2 ranked team in the country was a wise choice. This spot however at home against the Oklahoma Sooners on Big Monday is an entirely different animal. Lon Kruger’s kids were pretty much handled with ease by KU in their nationally televised Super Tuesday appearance last week, so it’s... 

  • BookMaker.eu Now a full week removed from dropping a disappointing decision to Baylor that allowed the Bears to secure their first ever win at Phog Allen Fieldhouse, the No. 6 Kansas Jayhawks will be out to score a second straight road win when they invade the Lone Star State to take on the streaking Texas Longhorns. While it’s no doubt been a rough go of it for Shaka Smart since bolting VCU for Austin, this could be as good a spot as any for his kids to rattle off a third straight win against a top-ranked o... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Penn State Nittany Lions need a spark in the worst of ways. Pat Chambers’ kids have had an extremely rough go of it lately in dropping three straight after falling in Minnesota on Wednesday night 75-69 to the Golden Gophers. Luckily for them, they get to return to the comforts of their own gym for Saturday’s revenge bout with the Ohio State Buckeyes who trashed them in Columbus to tip off Big Ten play back in early December. Since sweeping the Buckeyes in all three skirmishes back in 2018, the Nittany Lions have failed to come out victorious in each of the last two skirmishes. After getting bounced from the game early in the second half of the first meeting, you can expect Lamar Stevens to be out for blood in the second go round in hopes of getting his squad back on track. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The No. 3 ranked Duke Blue Devils return home from Littlejohn Coliseum with their tails between their legs after watching their nine-game win streak go up in flames against the Clemson Tigers. The “Cameron Crazies” were already likely to be lit for this primetime matchup with the No. 11 Louisville Cardinals, but the fact that their team will hit the hardwood looking to avoid dropping two straight should have them amped even more. Chris Mack’s kids were forced to expend a ton of energy to dispose of Pitt last time out, so it will be interesting to see what they have left in the tank to close the road trip out in style. That said, The Ville has failed to win or cover its pair of treks to Durham since joining the ACC and got smashed 82-56 back in 2018. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Though the regular season is still in its infancy, the Cincinnati Bearcats and No. 22 Memphis Tigers look to be two of the stronger teams the conference has to offer. With that, Thursday night’s clash off Beale Street could end up going a long way in helping decide the regular season title holder. Having already dropped a 76-67 decision on the road at Wichita State, this is a game Anfernee Hardaway’s kids must win and linemakers at online sportsbooks are likely to have them installed short favor... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Purdue Boilermakers just got done handing their supporters one of the worst pointspread defeats of the college basketball betting season when they dropped an 84-78 decision to the Michigan Wolverines in overtime as 5.5-point underdogs. Maybe they can make up for it at online sportsbooks Sunday afternoon when they return home to the comforts of Mackey Arena to host the No. 8 Michigan State Spartans. The chore won’t be easy however with Tom Izzo’s troops catching fire of late having rattled of... 

  • BookMaker.eu Must-see college hoops is set to go down in the Big 12 at online sportsbooks on Saturday afternoon when the No. 4 Baylor Bears and No. 3 Kansas Jayhawks square off in hopes of getting a leg up in the conference title race. Scott Drew’s Bears have busted out of the gates with 12 wins through 13 tries and invade Lawrence amidst an 11-game win streak after going into Lubbock and handling the Texas Tech Red Raiders earlier in the week. Rock Chalk was also impressive on Wednesday night when it went i... 

  • BookMaker.eu The No. 13 ranked Louisville Cardinals hit the road for the first time since coughing up a win in Lexington on Saturday afternoon when they head for South Bend in hopes of handing the Notre Dame Fighting Irish a fifth straight defeat in the recent rivalry. Mike Brey’s troops return home off spitting the bit in Raleigh where they had the NC State Wolfpack on the ropes but failed to administer the knockout blow and suffered both SU and ATS defeats at online sportsbooks because of it. With the Iris... 

  • BookMaker.eu The No. 11 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes will be out to put an end to an ugly three-game losing streak on Saturday afternoon when they invade Assembly Hall looking to increase its win streak to five straight against the Indiana Hoosiers. The season has taken a dramatic turn for the worse for Chris Holtmann’s kids; but they’ll no doubt enter this tilt confident having had Indiana’s number the last two seasons. That said, Archie Miller’s troops have been at their best in front of the hometown faithful where they’ve rattled off 10 wins through 11 tries on the year. Regardless, this is a spot the Buckeyes should shine should it be taken as a serious Big Ten title contender moving forward. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Iowa Hawkeyes return to the comforts of their own gym badly in need of a victory after dropping back-to-back contests to Penn State and Nebraska on the road to fall to 1-3 SU and 1-2-1 ATS in Big Ten play. On the flipside, the Maryland Terrapins invade the Midwest fresh off earning three straight wins at home with the most recent coming in a dominating effort against the Ohio State Buckeyes to move to 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS versus B1G opposition. Fran McCaffery’s kids have logged just one win an... 

  • BookMaker.eu To say the No. 12 Michigan Wolverines have Sunday’s B1G matchup against the No. 14 Michigan State Spartans circled would be quite the understatement. Tom Izzo’s troops just so happened to bust the broom out on the Wolverines last season by taking both regular season matchups as well as the biggest of the year in the title game of the Big Ten Tournament. On top of all that, they covered the closing college basketball odds offered up at online sportsbooks in each and every one of those skirmishes.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Explosive fast-paced offenses are set to hit the hardwood on Saturday afternoon when the Georgia Bulldogs and No. 9 Memphis Tigers step out of conference play to square off on Beale Street. Yet to log a single solid win away from Stegeman Coliseum save for barely getting by Chaminade as huge favorites in the Maui Invitational, Tom Crean’s kids will without a doubt be going all-out to log a win at online sportsbooks against a top-10 opponent. That will however prove to be a tough chore with Penny... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Indiana Hoosiers and Maryland Terrapins have crossed paths once each of the last three seasons. If the end results of those games are any type of indicator, Saturday afternoon’s throw down in College Park will be extremely competitive with all three games decided by an average of 3.0 points per game. Both squads have been in a funk of late for college basketball bettors with the Hoosiers managing just one cover against the current college basketball odds in their last five games, while the T... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Duke Blue Devils invade South Beach red hot having rattled off six straight wins and four covers against the closing college basketball odds since shockingly falling at home to Stephen F. Austin as decided home chalk at the end of November. The same can be said for the Miami Hurricanes who enter this crucial ACC home tilt winners of five straight while securing four pointspread covers since getting skunked on a neutral floor by the Florida Gators. Having already been curb stomped at home by ... 

  • BookMaker.eu As great a start Chris Holtmann’s Ohio State Buckeyes have gotten out to, the team will be looking to get back in the win column in B1G play on Friday night when they welcome the Wisconsin Badgers into C-Bus for a crucial conference clash. Fresh off an embarrassing non-conference loss to the West Virginia Mountaineers, you can bet your bottom dollar that Kaleb Wesson and company come ready to play. But the Badgers enter this tilt on a solid streak of their own having rattled off a pair of wins a... 

  • BookMaker.eu Becoming the latest No. 1 team to fall from the lofty perch, the Kansas Jayhawks return to the hardwood in their first game since a disheartening setback at Villanova. They get an unranked opponent on Sunday, but that doesn’t mean the road is any easier. The Stanford Cardinal are knocking on the door of the top-25 after opening the season with 11 wins in 12 games, their best start in more than a decade. The teams met last season with KU pulling out an overtime home victory against a Cardinal tea... 

  • BookMaker.eu Only two teams have won the Big East since the reformation of the league in 2014, and those two squads open a new season of conference play on Monday when the Xavier Musketeers visit the Villanova Wildcats. Nova entered the Christmas break on a high after knocking off No. 1 Kansas for their fifth straight win. The X-men have won two in a row since a heartbreaking loss at Wake Forest and will try for their first road win against the Wildcats since joining the Big East.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Kentucky Wildcats will find out a lot about themselves on Saturday when they return from a winless trip to Las Vegas at the CBS Sports Classic to take on the rival Louisville Cardinals. We’re not used to seeing the Wildcats lose two in a row and bouncing back against a quality Louisville club isn’t going to be easy. Both teams were ranked No. 1 in the country at one point, so there definitely is talent on the floor, and the Cardinals feel like they have a good chance to end a two-game slide ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The good news for the Wisconsin Badgers and Tennessee Volunteers is that they won’t have to worry about a No. 1 ranking and the problems that have befallen the top team in the land in the early going of the season. The bad news is that they both have a lot of work to do to even sniff a national ranking at this point. Both clubs put an end to a mini slide last time out and will look to expand on a victory when they hook up on Saturday afternoon. And both clubs have reinforcements on the way that ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Ohio State Buckeyes are looking sharp in Chris Holtmann’s third season. Holtmann’s team looks like it has turned a corner, and Ohio State is currently rated the best team in the country according to Ken Pomeroy with a 10-1 record. They already have two wins over top ten opponents, and the Buckeyes will look to add another resume building win in Sin City just before Christmas when they face John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats. Kentucky is 8-2 entering this game, but they haven’t faced another t...
