Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams is in his fifth season on the bench since coming over from Marquette. They’ve made it to the NCAA March Madness tournament the past two seasons only to get bounced in the first round.

Leading scorer Nickeil Alexander-Walker (17.8) ppg is the go-to guy’s, but forward Kerry Blackshear Jr has been performing at an elite level scoring in double figures the past five games. Williams has also taken a blueprint from the success of Virginia using stingy defense as a catalyst to winning. The (61.1) ppg they allow opponents ranks seventh in College Basketball.

Virginia Tech scores (75.4) ppg which ranks 90th in College Basketball, however, the add (6.8) ppg to the number when playing at home.

The (13-6) SU, (12-7) ATS Baylor Bears are on a four-game winning streak after their 73-68 SEC/Big 12 Challenge victory over Alabama as 3′ point home FAVORITES ATS.

Baylor converted 44.8% from the field but allowed the Crimson Tide 51% as a point outscored the Bears in the second half. The Bears sit at 4-2 in the Big Twelve, a half-game behind Kansas and Kansas State.

  • Baylor is 4-1 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last five at Oklahoma.
  • OVER bettors have made a profit the Bears last eight vs. Big Twelve opponents.
  • The Bears are 6-2 ATS their last eight on Monday’s.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in 8 of Baylor last ten on the road.

The (15-5) SU, (15-3-2) ATS Oklahoma Sooners look to extend their winning streak to three after an 86-55 thrashing of Vanderbilt as 9 point home FAVORITES ATS in the clash between the SEC.

Christian James poured in a team-best 21 points as the Sooners dominated at both ends of the court. However, it could have been fools gold because Vanderbilt came off of an emotional overtime loss to number-one ranked Tennessee three days earlier.

  • Oklahoma is 7-2 ATS their last eight at home.
  • The UNDER is is 4-1 Oklahoma last five following a POINT SPREAD cover.
  • The UNDER is 8-2 Oklahoma last ten vs. Big Twelve opposition.
  • Oklahoma is 3-2 AGAINST THE SPREAD their previous five at home.

Monday’s game is 9:00 PM EST at Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Oklahoma. The ESPNU Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Oklahoma as 5′ point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 139 points for Monday’s contest.

 

Former Mississippi State forward Mario Kegler played Alabama three times his freshman year while in the SEC and didn’t perform the way he’s capable in any of them. However he got a chance at redemption scoring a game-high seventeen points while Makai Mason contributed with thirteen. Mason is an intelligent player with four years of experience at Yale and as a graduate player provides leadership for head coach Scott Drew.

After shooting (29%) from beyond the three-point line the Bears shot (42%) the last three games which will force Oklahoma to defend. They were also the second team to out rebound Alabama this season with a 35-31 edge on the boards.

As is always the case if you’re going to get time in Drew’s rotation you must prove worthy on defense as the Bears are staunch allowing (64.5) points per game to opponents, 28th in the nation. The teams split a pair last season and tonight’s contest will be the first since Baylor took down Oklahoma in February of 2018.

This Sports Handicapper will look for a stellar defensive effort by the Bears, but it may not be enough in a hostile environment. The neutralizer is both teams were in action Saturday, but the Bears had to travel to Norman, Oklahoma.

Bovada.Lv list Baylor at +15,000 to win the 2019 NCAA Tournament Championship.

 

The Oklahoma Sooners no longer have current Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young to lean on for scoring after the prized freshman was the talk of College Basketball through the end of 2017. It didn’t matter as the Sooner finished 18-14 and a first-round exit from the 2018 NCAA March Madness Tournament.

Although senior guard Christian James (16.8 ppg with 7.3 RPG) contributed last year, he’s the team leader with expectations of taking the Sooners to another level in March. Head Coach Lon Kruger insists Jones will get his shot at a career on the basketball court either in the USA or abroad. Both teams mirror each other in the fact that everything begins on the defensive side of the court.

While Oklahoma (74.0) ppg put up more points than Baylor, they don’t quite match the Bears intensity of defense, but it’s close. The Sooners 62nd ranked defense allows the opposition (66.6) ppg. The Sooners are 2-2 at home in Conference play with a loss to Kansas State, and they’re scoring has dipped the last four game to (72.3) ppg.

The team of Handicappers aat Charliessports.com understands the line on this games looks off, Baylor getting 6 points seems to easy which is why our free play is going the other way. Look for Oklahoma to win by double digits down the stretch.

Kentucky takes a back seat to Tennessee in the SEC as Volunteers are the top NCAA Basketball team in the nation early in 2019.

Sixty-four-year-old Rick Barnes still has a youthful look after successful stints at Providence, Clemson, Texas and now he’s taken the University of Tennessee basketball program to new heights. Hickory, North Carolina native, has the Volunteers on top in College Basketball for the first time since February of 2008 in the Tobias Harris era.

Fans in the football-crazed state are now enthusiastic about showing up at Thompson–Boling Arena to root on a team that lost to Kentucky in the 2018 SEC Conference tournament. However, they still received a March Madness invitation as the number-three seed in the South Region but were outed in the second round by the cinderella Loyola Chicago Ramblers. Barnes says the players deserve all the credit for the turnaround, but it’s not the first times he’s turned around a College Basketball program.

Rick Barnes notoriety began in 1989-90 when he led Providence to consecutive March Madness appearances led by 2,000 point scorer Eric Murdock. After a few mediocre years of NIT invitations, they got back to the Big Dance in 1994 also leading the Friars to their first Big East Conference Championship the same season. In four years at Clemson Barnes became the first coach in school history to take the Tigers to the NCAA Tournament three consecutive years and in his tenure, they were ranked as high as number two in the country.

Barnes then took over for Tom Penders at the University of Texas from 1998–2015 which was his longest tenure and began to attract five-star recruits to Austin. Kevin Durant, Tristan Thompson, Avery Bradley, D. J. Augustin, and Cory Joseph to name a few who have gone of to have stellar NBA careers.

The 2002-03 team made it to the Final Four, a direction which is where his current Tennessee team is heading. Barnes not only know the coaching aspect but has an incredible way to lure players to his program, whatever the situation and the University of Tennessee could only find a football coach to have the same ability all would be great in Knoxville.

Tennessee has just one loss on their resume’ and 87-81 loss to Kansas which was in overtime back on November 23, 2018. The Volunteers have 9-6-1 record ATS going OVER the total nine times while staying UNDER seven with a push. Six top scorers for the team that lost in the second round to Loyola/Chicago return which brings a bevy of experience to the current roster. Junior forward Grant Williams 18.9 points per game is the Volunteers leading scorer with guard Admiral Schofield (17.4) ppg is second.

The only other time Tennessee was ranked in the top spot, they lost the next game which was to Vanderbilt, and that’s who they play Wednesday. January 23, 2019. Tennessee still has two SEC Conference games against the mighty Kentucky Wildcats.

Creighton Blue Jays @ Georgetown Hoyas NCAA Basketball Betting Preview for Monday, January 21, 2019.

Written by College Basketball Expert Point Spread Analyst Greg Nelson.

The (10-8) SU, (7-10) ATS Creighton Blue Jays will try to break a four-game losing streak both SU/ATS. The latest an 81-66 defeat at the hands of St.Johns as 3′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS. Marcus Zegarowski scored a team-best 17 point making five three-point shots for the Blue Jays while versatile Ty Shon Alexander added 10 in defeat.

  • Creighton is 2-8 ATS their last ten on the road.
  • The UNDER is 6-4 the last ten times the teams have met.
  • The Blue Jays are 4-5 ATS their last nine.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in 10 of Creighton last fourteen on Monday’s.

The (12-6) SU, (6-11-1) ATS Georgetown Hoyas let a double-digit lead slip away their last game on January 15th, a 74-71 loss to Marquette as 1′ point home UNDERDOGS ATS. Guard Mac McClung led the Hoyas with 24 points on 7 of eleven shooting from the field.

  • OVER bettors have made a profit in 14 of the Hoyas last seventeen vs. The Big East.
  • The Hoyas are 2-7-1 ATS their last ten against Conference opponents.
  • The OVER is 5-2 Georgetown last seven at home.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in 16 of the Hoyas last twenty-one at home.

Monday’s game is at 8:30 PM EST at Capital One Arena in Washington, DC. The FS-1 Television Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Creighton as 1′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 165′ points for the contest.

 

Creighton head coach Greg McDermott will be without Damien Jefferson (9.4 ppg, 5.4 RPG) for six weeks which means he’ll probably miss the rest of 2019. The sophomore provided length and athleticism in the post. Creighton must play near flawless down the stretch of the season to improve their NCAA Tournament resume’ which must begin tonight in the nation’s capital.

There’s no doubt Creighton can score the basketball with the best in College Basketball. The Blue Jays average (83.5) points per game on (50.7%) shooting from the field while the (42.9%) from beyond the three-point line ranks 3rd in the NCAA Basketball landscape. However, as good as they are on offense they’re equally as lousy playing defense.

In a recent home loss to Villanova in which flaws were exposed the coaching staff knows they must improve their intensity on defense. Since joining the Big East expectations in Omaha are still the same, a berth in the March Madness tournament. For that to happen, they must change the trajectory on defense.

The talent is in place to make a run, even without Jefferson and it starts with point guard Ty-Shon Alexander tonight. Points shouldn’t be a problem tonight, but the Blue Jays must prevent Georgetown from taking high percentage shots.

 

Bovada.Lv, list the Creighton Blue Jays at +750 to win the 2019 Big East Conference Tournament.

Georgetown Hoyas head coach Patrick Ewing will attempt to regroup his team after a devastating home loss to Marquette who was without their star player Markus Howard for most of the contest.

After allowing St. John’s to leave the Capital One Center victorious at the beginning of the month tonight’s contest against a high scoring Creighton team could be pivotal.

Georgetown is 3-3 with hopes to end a three-game homestand with a win with three of their next four after tonight on the road. Senior Center Jessie Govan should have an extra incentive tonight after last season’s performances against Creighton; he failed to score in double figures in 2017-18, two were against Creighton. However, if the Blue Jays continue to allow opponents to score at will Govan should have a game to remember, especially with Jefferson out of the lineup.

The Hoyas all-freshman backcourt of James Akinjo and Mac McClung are going to be a great combination in the future but are enduring some growing pains. Akinjo who was affected by the length of Marquette last week also made some questionable passes in the final moments in the loss. Ewing can live with those mistakes only if the duo grows through the process.

The Hoyas haven’t beat Creighton since 2017 which was a 71-51 home victory. Georgetown must force the pace against a Creighton team that has issues on defense.

Bovada.Lv, list the Georgetown Hoyas at +1,400 to win the 2019 Big East Conference Crown.

Utah Jazz @ Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Betting Betting Preview for Friday. January 4, 2019.

The (18-20) SU, (18-19-1) ATS Utah Jazz were beaten by Toronto 122-116 as 1′ point road FAVORITES ATS on New Year’s Day. Jae Crowder led all scorers with 30 points as Utah gave up 44 third-quarter points in a pathetic defensive effort.

They’re playing the second of a four-game road trip which end in Milwaukee on the 9th.

  • Utah is 4-0-1 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last five after an SU defeat.
  • The Under is 3-1 Utah last four on the road.
  • UNDER bettors have made profits in Utah last four on the road vs. Teams with an SU losing record.
  • The Jazz is 5-0-1 ATS the last six between the teams.

The (8-30) SU, (18-10) ATS Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to end a seven-game SU losing streak after a 117-92 defeat at the hands of Miami as 5′ point home UNDERDOGS ATS.

Forward Kevin Love is getting set for basketball-related activities after undergoing foot surgery in November, but there’s no timetable for his return on the court. Cleveland owns the worst record in the NBA as we enter 2019.

  • Cleveland is 0-5 ATS their last five on Friday’s.
  • The Cavaliers are 0-4 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last four at home.
  • The OVER is 7-1 Cleveland last eight at home.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in the last five times, the teams have played.

Friday’s game is 7:30 PM EST at Quickens Loan Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. The Local Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Cleveland as 9 point home UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 208′ points for Friday’s contest.

 

Expectations around the NBA for the Utah Jazz were prematurely high after a tremendous 2018 postseason. However, the Jazz finds themselves in an unpopular position as far as the standings are concerned.

Head Coach Quinn Snyder insists his guys aren’t panicking but also indicated tonight’s game is critical for team confidence. It’s been seven years since Utah has been victorious in Cleveland, but that’s when they were competing against the likes of LeBron James or Kyrie Irving. Sharp Shooter Kyle Korver returns to Cleveland for the first time since getting traded for Alec Burks while the Cavaliers Rodney Hood also looks forward to seeing his old teammates.

Guard Donovan Mitchell (20.8) points per game lead the leagues 21st ranked offense that scores (107.7) ppg. Point Guard Ricky Rubio is questionable tonight with a minor foot injury which could affect ball distribution. Utah shoots (46.3%) from the field which ranks 13th league-wide.

What bothers the coaching staff is their effort on defense in Toronto, they allow opponents (106.1) points per contest and 144 is unacceptable. They also understand it was New Years and Toronto is city players like to frequent although the weather is frigid.

Utah will face two former players who’ll be looking to take their abilities to new heights tonight; they must stick to the game plan by getting the ball to Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors in the post.

Bovada.Lv list the Utah Jazz win total at 49′ games for 2018-19.

 

After the departure of LeBron James the Cleveland Cavaliers face many dilemmas in the first month of 2019. Owner Dan Gilbert fired Tyronn Lue earlier in the season, replacing him with Larry Drew on an interim basis.

Nothing is working, and now they’re in the hunt for Duke star Zion Williamson who’ll enter the 2019 NBA draft and it in some circles being compared to the King.

Trade rumors are swirling surrounding Kevin Love who’s talent could land him in the Western Conference when he becomes healthy. For now, the coaching staff remembers the production of Donovan Mitchell in two appearances last year averaging (27.5) ppg while shooting (63.6%) and that was against a team that played Golden State in the NBA Finals.

The Cavaliers allows opponents a league-worst (48.7%) from the field which should have Mitchell licking his chops. Jordan Clarkson (16.9) ppg leads the leagues 28th ranked scoring offense that puts up (102.0) points per contest while rookie Colin Sexton (14.7) ppg is playing up to expectations. The former Alabama Crimson Tide point guard looks forward to facing Rubio if he’s available.

Cleveland doesn’t have a star in the lineup since Love is on the shelf and their dependency of James no longer an option they’ll lose but cover the POINT SPREAD tonight.

Bovada.Lv list the Cleveland Cavaliers win total at 30′ games for 2018-19.
