The Providence Friars exceeded all expectations this season with a strong Freshman class. Fans in “LITTLE RHODY” have plenty to look forward to, but they want an invitation to the 2018 NCAA March Madness Tournament.

Creighton will probably get an at-large bid to the annual March Madness spectacle. An 89-83 home victory over Villanova in February sealed the deal for Crighton.

The opening betting line has Providence as a four-point underdog against the spread on a neutral court. The betting odds total is not available for Thursday’s game.

 

The 2018 Providence Friars lost three of five both straight up and against the spread down the stretch.

Head Coach Ed Coley is a Providence native and understands the landscape in the smallest state if the union, better than any coach in the storied history of Providence College.

Since coming to his alma mater from Fairfield University, the forty-eight-year-old Cooley has led the program to four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances.

All of the invitations came with a twenty game win resume,’ and the Friars are one victory short of the mark this season.

Many NCAA basketball experts believe the Friars must pull the upset over Creighton go even be in the discussion of an at-large berth.

Cooley and his staff want an outright Big East Tournament Title which is within reach. Afterall the Providence team is young and fearless.

Senior Rodney Bullock leads the team in scoring, but it’s going to be one of the Freshmen who must step into the spotlight for the team to keep their hopes alive Thursday.

Bovada.Lv has the underdog Providence Friars at +1,600 to win the 2018 College Basketball Big East Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament Championship.

 

The Creighton Blue Jays lost their season finale at Marquette as the Golden Eagles got the season sweep over Creighton.

Head Coach Greg McDermott is in his eighth season on the bench at the Omaha, Nebraska institute of higher education, fifth season as members of the Big East Conference.

By all indications the Blue Jays should get an invitation to the annual March Madness Tournament but to ensure they get a victory Thursday could seal the deal.

The Blue Jay is one of the most prolific scoring teams in the all of College Basketball averaging 84.8 ppg. Defensively they hold opponents at just under seventy-five points per contest.

Guards Marcus Foster and Khyri Thomas combine for over thirty-five points per game between them, as they go so do the Blue Jays offense.

Written and authored by NCAA Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting news and notes.

NCAA Basketball ATS Picks are the best in the business and again will win again at an unbelievable rate through the NCAA Basketball March Madness Finals in April of 2018.

The (8-23) and Ten Seed Siena Saints of the Metro Atlantic Conference are the host team again for the conference tournament. Siena play’s the (10-20) and Number Seven Quinnipiac Bobcats also of the MAAC.

The opening betting line list Siena as a one points favorites against the spread on their home court. The betting odds total is not available for Thursday’s game.

 

The Siena Saints have had their share of problems on and off the court this season; it shows with their record.

Head Coach Jimmy Patsos is in his fifth season on the bench at Siena, and it could be his last. The Saints have lost eight of their last ten including four in a row.

Siena has not been very efficient covering the Las Vegas number, going 3-6-1 ATS their last ten games.

Freshman Guard Roman Penn is the future of the program but scores just nine points per game. Forward Prince Oduro is another freshman contributor at the forward positions.

The duo has done some growing up this season, but it should pay dividends in the futures. Siena will have the home crowd rooting for them to advance, but they may not have enough fire-power to advance.

It’s been an emotionally draining season for the Saints who used to dominate the MAAC.

Bovada.Lv has the Siena Saints at 200 to 1 to win the 2018 NCAA Basketball Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament Crown.

 

The 2018 Quinnipiac Bobcats have lost three n a row including their regular season overtime road finale at the hands of Manhattan.

Quinnipiac could be tired after the long game Sunday. However, they understand this is the Conference Tournament as want a chance to play Canisius with a victory in the first round.

The Bobcats are 2-0 this season against Siena, and it’s tough to win three in a row in one season over the same opponent.

Quinnipiac scores an average of seventy-one points per game while allowing the opposition 77.2 ppg.

Senior Guard Cameron Young is the team’s leading scorer; he must take control of the game early if the Bobcats are to pull out the win. Forward Chaise Daniels must also contribute at both ends of the court.

Siena will try to impose their will with a slow pace contest, the Bobcats must counter by pushing the ball at every chance.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2018 Quinnipiac Bobcats at 50 to 1 to win the MAAC Basketball Tournament Title.

Tip-off is 7:00 PM EST on the ESPN Television Network. The game is on Tuesday. February 27, 2018.

The teams will play at Coleman Coliseum on campus in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

This Sports Handicapper believes the Florida Gators must continue to win if they want to get into the 2018 March Madness Tournament.

The Gators made it all the way to the Elite 8 last season but are struggling this year.

Fans of Alabama basketball finally have something to cheer about as their team is on the verge of getting into the “BIG DANCE.” A home victory over Florida would help their resume’.

The Opening Betting line has the Alabama Crimson Tide as a one and a half point home favorite against the spread. The betting odds total is unavailable for Tuesday’s contest.

 

The Florida Gators broke a three-game losing streak with a home victory over top fifteen-ranked Auburn this past weekend.

Florida is just 3-6-1 against the Las Vegas number their last nine overall. The Gators are three games out of first place heading into the last week of the regular season.

Head Coach Michael White is in his third season since coming over from Louisiana Tech and is doing an admirable job.

However, the boosters would love to have Billy Donovan on the bench at the Gainesville, Florida Institute.

Florida average nearly seventy-seven point per game scoring the basketball, while the defense allows opponents 69.8 ppg.

Guard Jalen Hudson is the team’s leading scorer while Rice University transfer Egor Koulechov also contributes offensively.

Florida must forget about the victory over Auburn and focus on the Alabama Crimson Tide. Florida has to play at a fast pace to get the road win.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2018 Florida Gators at +1,000 to win the Southeastern Conference Basketball Tournament Championship.

 

The 2018 Alabama Crimson Tide beat Florida by eighteen points earlier this season and are looking to sweep the regular season series.

Free NCAA Basketball Point Spread PRedictions, News, Notes, and Odds For Wednesday, February 21, 2018: North Carolina Tar Heels at Syracuse Orange.

Written and authored by College Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting news and notes. Basketball ATS Betting Picks are the best in the business and again will win again at an unbelievable rate through the NCAA Basketball March Madness Finals in April of 2018.

The (21-7) and Tenth-Ranked North Carolina Tar Heels of the Atlantic Coast Conference are in the “EMPIRE STATE” for a conference matchup. North Carolina takes on the (18-9) Syracuse Orange also of the ACC.

Tip-off is 7:00 PM EST. The game is on Wednesday, February 21, 2018. The teams will play at the Carrier Dome in frigid Syracuse, New York. The ESPN Television network will broadcast the game.

The North Carolina Tar Heels could bring out the best in Syracuse as tickets are a hot selling item. UNC looks to prepare to defend their 2017 NCAA March Madness title.

Syracuse is young but as always has talent. Could head coach Jim Boeheim be coaching in his last season where he’s spent the past forty-one years on the bench.

The opening betting line has Syracuse as a five and a half point home underdog against the spread. The betting odds total is not available for Wednesday’s game.

 

The North Carolina Tar Heels have beaten the Syracuse Orange the past five times they have met. North Carolina beat Louisville for their fifth straight win both straight up and to the Las Vegas number.

The Tar Heels are third in the Atlantic Coast Conference behind Virginia and Duke with a 10-5 conference record.

UNC is also 16-10 ATS, going over the betting odds total sixteen times while staying under eleven games.

Head Coach Roy Williams is in his fourteenth season on the bench at the most prestigious programs in the nation.

The Tar Heels have been in the March Madness Tournament finals game the past two season’s, losing on a last second three-point shot in 2016 and cutting down the nets in 2017.

Point Guard Joel Berry is the sparkplug of the team and as he goes so do the Tar Heels.

North Carolina must play at their own pace; they must put on a full court press after scoring.

Bovada.Lv has the North Carolina Tar Heels at 25 to 1 to win the 2018 NCAA Basketball March Madness Men’s Basketball Tournament Title.

 

The 2018 Syracuse Orange are 7-7 in the conference and have won three of four, including a massive road victory against Miami.

Syracuse scores 68.7 points per game while they rank tenth defensively allowing opponents a little over sixty-three points per contest. Edison, New Jersey native and guard Tyus Battle is the team’s leading scorer with a twenty point per game average.

Syracuse wants to play an exact type of slow down basketball game, taking high percentage shots and tight defense.

The coaching staff will have the Orange ready for action in front of a packed Carrier Dome.

Syracuse will get an invitation to the March Madness Tournament but how far will they go?

Bovada.Lv lists the 2018 Syracuse Orange at 250 to 1 to win the annual March Madness Tournament Championship.

The Best College Basketball ATS Picks, News, Notes, and Odds For Tuesday, February 20, 2018: Creighton Blue Jays at Butler Bulldogs.

Written and authored by NCAA Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting news and notes.

College Basketball Point Spread Predictions are the best in the business and again will win again at an unbelievable rate through the NCAA Basketball March Madness Finals in April of 2018.

The (19-8) Creighton Blue Jays of the Big East Conference are in the “HOOSIER STATE” for a crucial conference matchup. Creighton play’s the (18-10) Butler Bulldogs also of the Big East.

Tip-off is 7:00 PM EST. The game is on Tuesday, February 20, 2018. The teams will play at historic Hinkle Fieldhouse on campus in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The FS-1 Television network will broadcast the game.

Creighton head coach Greg McDermott is looking for consistency at both ends of the court the rest of the season. The Blue Jays could be on the bubble if they don’t start playing tight defense.

Butler is in a similar situation, and the Bulldogs recently broke a four-game losing streak with a home victory over Providence in front of the home-crowd.

The opening betting line has Butler as a five-point home favorite against the spread. The betting odds total is not available for Tuesday’s game.

 

The 2018 Creighton Blue Jays are third in the Big East Conference, three and a half games behind first-place Xavier.

Creighton lost to Marquette in their last contest 90-86 in front of a capacity home crowd.

The Blue Jays are just 2-7 their last nine to the Las Vegas number, going over the betting odds total four times in the span.

Creighton has a winning record, but they don’t fare as well on the road. Offensively the Blue Jays can compete with any team in the nation, but rank 211th in College Basketball on defense.

Wichita Falls, Texas native Marcus Foster is the team’s best player and leading scorer with twenty points per contest.

However, the coaching staff believes he can play more aggressive at the other end of the floor.

The key to a Creighton victory is to play tight man to man defense; they can’t allow Butler open shots.

Bovada.Lv has the Creighton Blue Jays at 80 to 1 to win the 2018 NCAA March Madness Men’s Basketball Tournament.

 

The Butler Bulldogs are on the outside looking in as far as the NCAA Tournament is concerned.

Butler is fifth in the standing with an 8-7 Big East conference record.

The Bulldogs have been good to over the Total bettors who bet going over the total in sixteen games this season.

Butler has made the NCAA Tournament the past three seasons under previous coach Chris Holtmann.

First-year head coach LaVall Jordan is trying to follow in the footsteps of Brad Stevens and Holtman but is realizing it’s a competitive business.

Butler averages 79.9 ppg scoring the basketball and ranks 169th in the land defensively. It’s a long way from the Stevens day’s when the Bulldogs would methodically move the ball on offense while clamping down on defense.

Forward Kelan Martin leads the team scoring but his skill set has limits, he’s more of an inside finesse player.

Butler must take care of the home crowd and play each possession with intensity at both ends of the court.

The Bulldogs are in jeopardy of missing the “BIG DANCE.” The entire Big East seems to be scoring the ball with relative ease.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2018 Butler Bulldogs at 20 to 1 to win the March Madness Championship.

2018 College Basketball Predictions, News, Notes, and Odds: How will Villanova handle latest injury to Guard and latest on the Ball brothers.

Written and authored NCAA Basketball Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for College Football Betting purposes.

College Basketball ATS Expert Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the NCAA Basketball March Madness Finals in April of 2018.

The Villanova Wildcats are on top of the polls in the NCAA Basketball landscape. The question is how long they will remain number-one?

Starting Guard Phil Booth will be out indefinitely with a broken hand.

Jalen Brunson is the primary weapon in the Wildcat backcourt but Booth does all of the little things such as dive for loose balls, play tight defense, and his unselfish play has the Wildcats number-one.

Head Coach Jay Wright and the Wildcats cut down the Nets in the 2016 season after a thrilling last-minute three-point shot that will go down in NCAA Tournament history.

Collin Gillespie recently returned after suffering a similar injury, and Jermaine Samuels has been on the sidelines since December.

Wright understands reserves must step up, everyone wants to participate and will threaten to leave if playing time isn’t given, well now is the time to shine.

 

No prep player has been given as much publicity as Zion Williamson, the overwhelming top dunker in the class of 2018 recently choose to take his talents to Duke University.

Not since LeBron James has a prep player been given so much hype leading up to their freshman seasons.

Unlike James, Zion Williamson is not the consensus number-one player. Although he already has an NBA body, he must shed some weight, and he understands what’s going on.

Williamson like other future College Basketball recruits have aspirations to play in the NBA, but not all will land at their desired location.

The days of the one and done player is in full swing and with social media allowing players to post their feelings it could take another new swing.

Recently LaVar Ball father of Lonzo of the Los Angels Lakers pulled his sons out of UCLA, and Chino Hills high school respectively to sign in Russia.

This Sports Handicapper understands Ball and his Big Baller Brand marketing exposition, but I don’t get his willingness to limit a high school and freshman in College to the rigors of professional sports abroad.

However if their maturity level is healthy, it can be a great learning experience, but Lil Angelo’s decision to shoot lift a pair of sunglasses in China show they have of growing up.

Don’t forget these kids will be competing against grown men who will show little mercy to the duo.

Lonzo is doing a great job in his short stint with the Lakers with all of the lures of the Los Angeles nightlife staying focused on being the best player he can become.

That doesn’t mean the other two are going to take the same path. The youngest Ball showed a little cockiness when he pointed at the half court circle and launched three-point shot which went in and left spectators in awe.

It’s going to be an exciting scenario to see what happens with the LaVar Ball experiment with his young children.

2018 NCAA Basketball Betting Predictions, New, and Odds: Duke looks unbeatable with lengthy Freshman.

Written and authored College Basketball Association Expert Handicapper Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting news and notes.

NCAA Point Spread Expert Picks will make clients massive profits and will continue through 2018 March Madness Finals in April.

College Basketball fans have seen this before with the Duke Blue Devils basketball team. Plenty of five stars All Americans with impressive high school resumes’.

Fans pack Cameron Indoor stadium during the winter months like no other venue on the land.

However they have not tasted an NCAA Championship since the 2015 season, but from what this sports handicapper has seen, it should happen again in the 2018 March Madness Tournament.

The era of the one and done player is upon us and the days of players like former Blue Devils standout Christian Laettner staying four years are long gone.

Legendary head coach Mike Krzyzewski is in his thirty-eighth season on the bench at the Durham, North Carolina Institute.

Unlike one of his mentor Bobby Knight, Krzyzewski keeps an open mind and tells potential recruits the truth.

 

Everyone is the College Basketball landscape is aware that the Atlantic Coast Conference is one of the most competitive in the nation.

The Duke Blue Devils are charter members along with their in-state rivals North Carolina Tar Heels. Both schools compete for the best players at the prep level, but in the past few years high profile “HOOP” schools such as Louisville, and Syracuse have joined the conference.

The North Carolina Tar Heels played in the NCAA finals the past two season while Duke got sent packing early in the tournament.

Watching, the 2018 Blue Devils in their most recent game a comeback win over Miami, Florida on the road.

Four Freshmen who are five-star recruits and a tough-minded senior by the name of Grayson Allen will probably have the Blue Devils cut the nets down in the spring of 2018.

Duke is fifth in the last NCAA Basketball pools behind number-one Villanova; second-ranked Virginia who is in the ACC, three Purdue, and number four Oklahoma who has the most exciting player in College Basketball.

 

However, the 2018 Duke Blue Devils have the most talent of any team in the NCAA Basketball landscape.

Their four top freshmen will all be lottery picks in this years NBA draft. Allen is also going to make a significant pro player with his toughness and ability to shoot, and play defense.

Forward Marvin Bagley III is the teams leading scorer and already has an NBA body.

Point Guard Trevon Duval also averages double figures scoring the basketball but is overshadowed by Allen at the position.

Gary Trent Jr’s dad made a name for himself in the NBA and NCAA Basketball “aka” the SHAQ OF THE MAC” while at Ohio University. The younger Trent is going to be an instant star due to his ability to hit the three-point shot.

Wendell Carter Jr. already has an NBA body and is a “BEAST” around the bucket.

This Sports Handicapper has never seen a College Basketball team with the length of the 2018 Duke Blue Devils, and they are just learning how to compete at this level.

Watch out NCAA Basketball the Blue Devils are putting everyone on notice.

The Betting Experts at Charliessports.com has the best sports betting predictions.

Bovada.Lv has Duke at 12 to 1 to win the 2018 NCAA Basketball March Madness Championship.
