COLLEGE BASKETBALL

(3) Kansas (13-0, 7-3 ATS) at Boston College (10-2, 4-4 ATS)


Kansas puts its perfect record on the line once again when it travels up the eastern seaboard to battle Boston College in Chestnut Hill.

The Jayhawks have been idle since Saturday’s 86-53 thrashing of Yale, barely covering a whopping 32-point spread. Kansas is on a 6-2 ATS roll, including 5-2 ATS when laying double digits. In fact, Bill Self’s squad has won 10 of its 13 games by double digits and is averaging 83.5 points per game on 52.4 percent shooting, figures that rank 16th and second in the nation, respectively.

Since an 83-80 loss to UMass as a 4½-point home favorite back on Dec. 12, Boston College has ripped off three straight victories, all at home, Most recently, the Eagles crushed Division II Longwood 81-52 in a non-lined game, but in their previous two contests they barely got by Division II Sacred Heart (80-75) and Northeastern (57-55). In lined games, B.C. has followed a 4-1 ATS run with consecutive non-covers.

These schools met last year in Lawrence, Kan., and the Jayhawks rolled to an 84-66 victory, cashing as a 10-point home chalk.

The Jayhawks are 3-0 on the highway (1-1 ATS), while B.C. is 8-2 on its home floor, but just 2-4 ATS in lined contests, outscoring its visitors by an average of just eight points per game (73-65).

Kansas is just 2-7 ATS in its last nine against ACC foes.

The under is 8-2 in Kansas’ last 10 outings, including 3-0 “under” on the road, but the over is 23-11 in B.C.’s last 34 non-conference games, including 5-2 in its last seven lined outings.

ATS ADVANTAGE: KANSAS


Iowa (7-7, 3-7 ATS) at (25) Wisconsin (11-2, 6-4 ATS)

Wisconsin shoots for its fifth consecutive victory when it hosts Iowa in its first Big Ten home game of the season.

The Badgers opened conference play with Wednesday’s 70-54 rout of Michigan, easily covering as an 8½-point road chalk. Ten of Wisconsin’s 11 victories have come by double digits, the lone exception being last Saturday’s thrilling 67-66 last-second win at then-No. 9 Texas.

Iowa came up just short against No. 11 Indiana on Wednesday, falling 79-76 to drop to 3-7 SU in its last 10. However, the Hawkeyes did cash as a 10-point home underdog, this after going 1-8 ATS in their previous nine lined games.

Wisconsin swept the season series last year, winning 57-46 as a five-point road favorite and 74-62, pushing as a 12-point home chalk. The Badgers are 8-1 in the last nine meetings and 9-4-2 ATS in the last 15 clashes. The favorite is also 9-4-2 ATS in the last 15.

Wisconsin is 8-1 on its home floor (3-3 ATS), the loss coming to Marquette a month ago. The Badgers are also on a 7-3-1 ATS roll against league opponents.

The Hawkeyes are 1-3 SU and ATS on the highway, and in addition to their ongoing 2-8 ATS slump, they’re 2-9-2 ATS in their last 13 Saturday outings. On a positive note, with the spread-cover against Indiana, Iowa is 15-6-2 ATS in its last 23 conference games.

As usual, the Badgers get it done with defense, ranking forth in the nation in points allowed (54.1 per game) and 15th in opponents’ field-goal percentage (37.5). Iowa is also a defensive-oriented squad, limiting foes to 57.0 ppg, good for 12th best nationally.

The under is 7-4 for Iowa this year, while Wisconsin has stayed under the number in every game during its five-game winning streak. Also, the under is on runs of 7-1 for the Badgers in conference action and 6-2 in this rivalry.

ATS ADVANTAGE: WISCONSIN and UNDER


Oregon (9-4, 4-6 ATS) at (21) Arizona (10-3, 5-5-1 ATS)

Arizona had little trouble with Oregon State in its Pac-10 debut on Thursday, winning 76-63, but falling short as a 17-point home chalk. The Wildcats are 7-1 in their last eight, the only loss coming a week ago today at No. 2 Memphis. However, they’re just 1-3-1 ATS in their last five.

These teams faced off three times last year. The road team prevailed in both regular-season clashes, while Oregon scored a 69-50 blowout win as a two-point underdog in the Pac-10 Tournament. The Ducks are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings, with the underdog getting the money in all five contests.

Oregon is 2-4 on the highway and has now failed to cash in eight of its last 11 as a visitor (2-3 ATS this year). On the positive end, the Ducks are still 6-1 ATS in their last seven Pac-10 contests and 7-1 ATS in their last eight Saturday games.

The under is 4-0 in the last four series meetings, 4-1 in Arizona’s last five overall and 3-1-1 in Oregon’s last four lined affairs.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UNDER


(5) UCLA (13-1, 7-4-2 ATS) at Cal (10-2, 6-2 ATS)

Two teams that kicked off their Pac-10 campaigns with impressive wins battle in Berkeley, Calif., where No. 5 UCLA takes on Cal.

The Bruins went to Stanford on Thursday night and pulled away late, securing a 76-67 victory in a pick-em game. UCLA has ripped off six straight wins (3-2 ATS) since suffering its only loss of the season, a 63-61 home setback to Texas.

While UCLA was beating Stanford, Cal was upending No. 22 USC 92-82 up the road in Berkeley, covering as a three-point home favorite. The Bears have won and covered three in a row, with all three victories being double-digit routs.

UCLA, en route to its second consecutive Pac-10 title, crushed the Bears twice in the regular season last year, wining 62-46 as a six-point road chalk and 85-75 as a 15-point home choice. However, Cal shocked the Bruins in the opening round of the conference tournament, winning 76-69 in overtime as a 14-point underdog.

The straight-up winner has covered the spread in five of the last 10 series meetings. Meanwhile, the underdog is 7-2 in the last nine battles and the visitor is 7-1 ATS in the last eight.

Cal moved to 9-1 at home (5-1 ATS) with the win over USC, and the Bears have cashed in seven of their last eight in Berkeley dating to last season.

The Bruins, who rank fifth in the nation in scoring defense (54.7 ppg allowed), are a perfect 5-0 on the road (3-1 ATS). Also, going back several years, they’re on an astonishing 27-12-1 ATS tear away from Pauley Pavilion.

UCLA is on a 12-5 “under” streak, including 7-4-1 “under” this year (3-1 on the highway). The under is also 26-11 in the Bruins’ last 37 Saturday games. Conversely, the over is on runs of 6-1-1 for Cal overall, 12-5-1 for Cal on Saturdays, 4-1-1 for Cal at home, 7-2 for UCLA in Pac-10 games and 4-1 in the last five series meetings.

ATS ADVANTAGE: OVER


(22) USC (9-4, 6-4 ATS) at (24) Stanford (11-2, 6-6 ATS)


Stanford and USC look to bounce back from losses in their Pac-10 openers when they clash at Maples Pavilion in Palo Alto, Calif.

The Trojans had a three-game winning streak snapped in Thursday’s 92-82 loss at Cal as a 1½-point road underdog. They’ve followed up a 4-1 ATS streak with consecutive non-covers.

Stanford took a seven-game overall winning streak and an eight-game home winning streak into Thursday’s conference debut against fifth-ranked UCLA, but the Cardinal came up short 76-67 as a 2½-point home underdog. Stanford is 2-7 ATS in its last nine games, including three straight non-covers.

USC fell to Stanford 65-50 as a 1½-point road underdog in the first meeting last year, but the Trojans got revenge with a pair of four-point victories, one at home (69-65 as a five-point favorite) and one in the Pac-10 tournament (83-79 in overtime as a 2½-point choice).

The home team has won each of the last five regular-season meetings (3-2 ATS).

The Trojans dropped to 4-2 SU and ATS on the highway this year after the loss at Cal. They’re also 12-1 ATS in their last 13 games following a loss and 12-4 ATS in their last 16 Saturday games.

Even though Stanford is 8-1 at home, it is just 1-5 ATS in its last six at Maples Pavilion. The Cardinal have also failed to cash in four straight Saturday games, and they’re 0-4-1 ATS in their last five conference contests.

Stanford has stayed under the total in eight of its last nine games, and the under is 9-3-1 in its 13 outings this season (6-2-1 at home). Also, the Trojans have stayed low in seven of their last nine lined affairs.

LSU (7-6, 1-6 ATS) at (12) Texas A&M (13-1, 5-3 ATS)


The slumping Tigers head to College Station, Texas, to battle a Texas A&M squad that’s reeled off six consecutive wins.

LSU is coming off consecutive losses to Washington (73-65 at home last Saturday) and Tulane (68-63 on the road Wednesday). The Tigers are 1-3 in their last four, failing to cash in all four contests.

The Aggies last played on Monday, when they blew out Rice 68-41 at home, failing to cover as a 30-point favorite. A&M has won six in a row since a 78-67 loss at Arizona, but only two of the six wins have come against lined foes.

LSU has had the Aggies’ number the last two seasons, wining 58-57 as a 4½-point favorite in the 2006 NCAA Tournament and 64-52 as a two-point home chalk last year.

The Tigers are 1-5 in road/neutral-site contests (1-4 ATS). They’re also mired in extended ATS slumps of 18-37-1 overall, 7-19-2 on Saturdays and 2-5 against the Big 12.

ATS ADVANTAGE:  TEXAS A&M and UNDER


Minnesota (10-2, 4-3 ATS) at (6) Michigan State (12-1, 5-2-2 ATS)

Michigan State tries for its 10th consecutive win when it hosts Minnesota in the Big Ten opener for both squads.

The Spartans closed out non-conference play with last Saturday’s 93-75 rout of Wisconsin-Green Bay, coming up short as a 21½-point home favorite. Michigan State has played just five lined games during its winning streak, going 3-1-1 ATS.

The Golden Gophers had a seven-game winning streak halted in Sunday’s 81-64 loss at UNLV as a two-point road underdog. Tubby Smith’s squad has faced just three lined teams in its last seven games, going 1-2 ATS.

Michigan State destroyed Minnesota in the lone meeting last year, rolling 70-46 as a 16-point home favorite. The Spartans are 6-1 in the last seven in this rivalry (4-3 ATS). Also, the home team has won eight of the last 10 SU while covering the number in 10 of the last 12.

The Spartans are unbeaten through 10 home games this season (4-2 ATS), outscoring opponents by 20 points per game (83-63). Dating to last year, Tom Izzo’s squad is on an 11-4 ATS spurt on its home floor.

With the loss in Las Vegas on Sunday, the Gophers dropped to 3-2 on the highway (1-2 ATS). They’re just 1-4 in their last five lined road games, and they ended last year on a 1-5 ATS nosedive in Big Ten play.

The over is 4-1 in Michigan State’s five lined home games this season. However, the under is on runs of 14-5-2 for Michigan State in conference play, 8-3 for Minnesota overall, 9-4 for Minnesota on the road, 20-7 for Minnesota on Saturday and 4-1 in this rivalry overall and 5-1 in head-to-head meetings at Michigan State.

ATS ADVANTAGE: MICHIGAN STATE and UNDER


UConn (10-2, 3-4 ATS) at Notre Dame (11-2, 5-5 ATS)


Fresh off of victories in their conference openers on Thursday, UConn and Notre Dame clash in South Bend tonight.

The Huskies went to Seton Hall two days ago and trashed the Pirates 98-86, covering as a four-point road favorite. UConn has won five in a row, and it snapped an 0-5 ATS drought with Thursday’s spread-cover.

Notre Dame extended its winning streak to nine in a row – all at home – with Thursday’s 69-56 rout of West Virginia as a one-point home favorite. The Irish have followed up an 0-4 ATS drought by going 4-1 ATS in their last five. Also, eight of their nine victories during their streak have come by double digits, and the other was a nine-point win.

By quirk of the conference schedule, these teams didn’t meet last year. In their most recent clash in February 2006, the Huskies escaped with a 75-74 overtime win, but the Irish easily cashed as a 13½-point road underdog. The home team is 7-1 in the last eight regular-season meetings (5-3 ATS), including 5-0 in the last five. Also, the underdog has cashed in five of the last seven battles.

UConn improved to 3-2 on the road (2-3 ATS) with Thursday’s win at Seton Hall. However, going back to last year, the Huskies are just 6-20 ATS overall, including 2-9 ATS as a visitor.

Notre Dame is 9-0 at home (3-3 ATS). The Irish are also 6-1 ATS in their last seven against the Big East.

The over is 5-1 in the Huskies’ last six games, 3-1 in Notre Dame’s last four and 3-0 in the last three clashes in South Bend.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NOTRE DAME and OVER


(4) Washington State (12-0, 5-4 ATS) at Washington (9-4, 5-7 ATS)

Two bitter instate rivals open conference play against one another, when unbeaten Washington State heads to Seattle to battle the Huskies in a Pac-10 clash.

The Cougars have been off since Dec. 28, when they capped a perfect non-conference season with a 67-34 rout of North Carolina A&T in a non-lined home game. Only three of Washington State’s 13 opponents have come within single digits of the Cougars.

Washington rebounded from a 1-4 slump by closing the non-conference season with four straight wins, including Monday’s 82-50 rout of Idaho State as a 22-point home favorite. The Huskies have followed a 1-7 ATS drought with four consecutive spread-covers.

The Cougars have beaten their archrivals five straight times (5-0 ATS) with three of those victories coming last season: a 75-47 destruction as a six-point home favorite, a 65-61 win as a three-point road underdog and a 74-64 rout as a three-point chalk in the Pac-10 tournament. The straight-up winner has covered the spread in each of the last seven meetings and nine of the last 10.

Washington State has won more than half of its games on foreign turf, going 7-0 SU and 3-2 ATS. However, the Cougars closed out last year by going 1-5 ATS in Pac-10 games.

The Huskies are 8-1 on their home floor, the only blemish being a last-second one-point loss to Pitt. Against the number, Washington is 4-4 in Seattle, including 3-1 ATS in the last four.

The big difference between these squads is on defense, as Washington State leads the nation in points allowed (49.7 per game), while the Huskies rank 211th (69.9 ppg). Washington State also has the nation’s ninth-best field-goal shooting offense (50.6 percent) and the seventh-best field-goal defense (36.3 percent).

Washington started the season on a 5-1 “over” tear, but has since stayed under the total in six consecutive contests. On the flip side, Washington State went 4-1 “under” in its first five, but is 4-2 “over” in its last six. In conference play, the under is on runs of 7-3 for the Cougars and 8-3 for Washington.

ATS ADVANTAGE: WASHINGTON STATE and UNDER

Roy: 'Game-time decision'

Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy, who is extending his hot December into the first week of January, has been deemed by the team training staff as a "game-time decision" for tonight's home game against Utah.

Roy has a badly bruised tailbone, the result of a hard fall Thursday after his driving layin was blocked by Ben Wallace in the final minute of regulation during the Blazers' 115-109 double-overtime victory at Chicago.

"My legs kind of ran into (Wallace's) and I landed smack on my butt,'' Roy said after the game. "And it just went downhill from there.''

After the fall, Roy's back began to tighten up, gradually hindering his game. Roy had a sweet and-one in the overtime, driving baseline after a spinning move off Kirk Hinrich and being fouled by Wallace while making the layin. But with his back tightening and aching, Roy deferred more and more, a direct contrast to the first four quarters, when Roy sliced-and-diced his way to 20 points and a career-high tying 11 assists.

By the time the second overtime rolled around, Roy had told coach Nate McMillan that he could no longer run the show. In the decisive second overtime, Roy did not attempt a shot, and did not have an assist, scoring two points on free throws after Joe Smith fouled him on the perimeter while leaving a large scrape and finger nail scratch under Roy's right eye. The game had to be stopped after Roy's first free throw in order to clean the blood from the scrape.

Roy, who played a game-high 49 minutes - including the final 19:02 - said he tried to tough it out, but eventually felt he had to tell McMillan the truth.

"Coach kept asking me how I felt, and I kept saying 'I'm coo', I'm coo','' Roy said. "Then finally, I said, 'Alright, I'm cool, but don't give me the ball'.''
