Penn State (13-3, 7-2 ATS) at (22) Minnesota (14-1, 6-3-1 ATS)

Minnesota will try to make it eight straight over the Nittany Lions when it hosts this Big Ten matchup inside Williams Arena in Minneapolis.

Penn State has split its first two conference games, losing at Wisconsin 65-61 as a 9½-point underdog back on Jan. 3 and then returning home to beat Purdue on Tuesday 67-64, cashing as a 2½-point favorite. The Nittany Lions have gotten the cash in their last three overall and they are 4-1 ATS in either road or neutral site contests this season.

Minnesota is 11-1 at home but just 4-3 ATS. The Gophers went to Iowa on Thursday and scored a 52-49 win as a 1½-point underdog. They have split their first two Big Ten games in Minnesota, losing to Michigan State and beating Ohio State. They are 5-1 ATS in their last six at home but just 2-7 ATS in front of the home fans in their last nine against teams with a winning record.

Penn State hasn’t beaten the Gophers since 2004, losing seven straight (2-5 ATS), including both matchups last season. Minnesota earned a 76-73 win in Pennsylvania as a 1½-point ‘dog and then beat the Nittany Lions 75-68 at home but failed to cash as and 11½-point chalk. The home team is 9-4 ATS in the last 13 series clashes, but the underdog has gotten the money in four of the last five.

The Lions are on ATS runs of 5-1 overall, 5-0 against Big Ten competition, 4-1 on the road and 5-2-2 on Sundays. Meanwhile the Gophers are on ATS streaks of 6-1 overall and 5-1 coming off a straight-up win.

For Penn State, the under is on streaks of 5-2 overall, 5-2 against Big Ten squads and 4-1 following a straight-up win. Minnesota is on “under” runs of 38-18 overall, 37-17 at home, 20-8 in conference play and 36-16-1 following a spread-cover. Finally, in this rivalry, the over is 8-1 in the last nine meetings, including 4-1 in Minnesota.

ATS ADVANTAGE: MINNESOTA


Wisconsin (12-3, 7-6 ATS) at (14) Purdue (11-4, 4-7 ATS)

The Boilermakers will try to end a two-game skid when they host Wisconsin in this Big Ten matchup inside Mackey Arena in West Lafayette.

The two losses have been tough for Purdue. First, it fell 71-67 at home to Illinois in overtime in its conference opener on Dec. 30, losing as an eight-point favorite. Then on Tuesday, the Boilermakers lost at Penn State 67-64 an again failed to cash as a 2½-point chalk. Purdue is 0-3 ATS in its last three games overall and 2-6 ATS in its last eight lined contests.

Wisconsin has opened the Big Ten campaign with three straight wins (2-1 ATS), including Wednesday’s 74-45 blowout victory over Northwestern, easily cashing as a seven-point home favorite. The Badgers are 4-2 ATS in their six road/neutral site games this season and they are 6-3 ATS in their last nine overall.

Purdue swept the season series last year, winning 60-56 at home as a 1½-point home underdog and then shocking the Badgers at Wisconsin 72-67 as a 10-point pup in early-February. The Boilermakers are 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings with the Badgers and 5-1 SU and ATS in the last six at Mackey Arena. Purdue has been an underdog in the last five matchups and covered each time.

Wisconsin is on positive ATS trends of 7-1 on the road, 9-2 against Big Ten squads, 14-6 after a straight-up win and 4-1 on Sundays. Purdue us just on ATS slides of 1-6 at home, 1-4 overall, 2-6 against teams with a winning record but the Boilermakers are 22-8-1 ATS in their last 31 conference games.

For the Badgers, the under is 7-3 in their last 10 Big Ten games, 22-7 in their last 29 after a spread-cover and 8-2 in their last 10 Sunday games. The Gophers have topped the total in seven of their last 10 Sunday games and four of their last five conference games. In this rivalry, the under is 4-1 in the last five clashes.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NONE


(3) North Carolina (14-1, 6-7 ATS) at (4) Wake Forest (13-0, 5-4 ATS)

The Demon Deacons put their perfect record on the line in this classic ACC showdown with North Carolina.

There was talk of a perfect season for the Tar Heels until they were shocked at home by Boston College a week ago 85-78 as 23-point favorites. Roy Williams’ squad was able to rebound in emphatic style with Wednesday’s 108-70 win over Charlotte, cashing in as a 27-point favorite. The ‘Heels average 93.1 points a game and shoot 49.8 percent from the floor.

Wake has been perfect this season, but this is the first conference game for the Deacons. They’ve had more than a week off since their 94-87 win in Provo, Utah, on Jan. 3, beating BYU as a four-point underdog and halting the Cougars’ 53-game home winning streak. Wake Forest has the offense to hang with North Carolina, averaging 85.2 points a game and shooting 51.2 percent from the floor while holding the opposition to 36.4 percent shooting and 64.1 points.

North Carolina has won four straight (4-0 ATS) in this rivalry, including last year’s 89-73 win, narrowly cashing as a 15½-point favorite.

The Tar Heels are just 0-4 ATS in their last four ACC contests and 1-5 ATS following a straight-up win, but they are on a plethora of positive ATS streaks, including 39-16-1 after a spread-cover, 4-1 on the road against teams with a winning home record and 27-11 against teams with a winning overall record. Wake is just 1-5 ATS in its last six ACC games, but it is 13-6-2 ATS in its last 21 home games and 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games following a spread-cover.

For North Carolina, the over is 5-1 in its last six Sunday games and 8-3-1 in its last 12 after a spread-cover. The Demon Deacons have topped the total in six of their last eight ACC games and four of their last five against teams with a winning record. In this series, the over has been the play in four of the last five overall.

ATS ADVANTAGE: OVER


(10) UCLA (12-2, 6-7 ATS) at USC (10-4, 6-6 ATS)

Crosstown rivals meet for the first of two games this season when UCLA makes the short trek to the Galen Center in Los Angeles to face the Trojans.

UCLA is riding an eight-game winning streak (3-4 ATS) and hasn’t lost since an early-December visit to Texas, a 68-64 setback as a six-point underdog. The Bruins swept their opening Pac-10 doubleheader last weekend, winning 69-46 at Oregon State on Jan. 2 as a 15-point favorite and then scoring an 83-74 win at Oregon a week ago, coming up just short as a 10½-point chalk.

USC had its five-game winning streak stopped at Oregon State a week ago, falling 62-58 in overtime as an 11-point favorite. The Trojans, who hold the opposition to 59.2 points and 37.5 percent shooting at home, are 8-0 inside the Galen Center but just 3-3 ATS in lined contests.

The Bruins took two of three against USC last season (1-2 ATS), winning 56-46 on the Trojans’ home court as 6½-point favorites and then eliminating USC from the Pac-10 tournament with a 57-54 win, but falling well short as eight-point favorites. UCLA has won seven of the last nine meetings, but the Trojans have gotten the cash in five of the last six, all as an underdog. The road team is a perfect 4-0 ATS over the last two years in this rivalry.

UCLA is 0-4 ATS in its last four Sunday games, but the Bruins are on ATS streaks of 36-16-1 on the road, 37-17 after a non-cover, 9-3 on the road against teams with a winning home record and 4-0 against teams with a winning record. The Trojans are also 0-4 ATS in their last four Sunday games and just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games against teams with a winning road mark, but they are on positive ATS streaks of 18-6 following a straight-up loss and 19-7 following a non-cover.

The Bruins have topped the total in five of their last seven Pac-10 games, but otherwise the under is on runs of 5-2 on the road, 5-2 on Sundays and 4-1 following a non-cover. The Trojans are on “over” streaks of 9-4 at home, 23-10 in Pac-10 games, 5-2 overall and 4-1 following a straight-up loss.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UCLA

Re: NCAAB News and Notes Sunday 1/11

North Carolina at Wake Forest
By Sportspic.com

Were in for a nail-biter when Tar Heels and Demon Deacons hit the hardwood in this ACC showdown Sunday night. Heels opening the season 13-0 (6-7 ATS) outscoring opponents by 26.4 PPG had visions of running the table. However, Heels suffered a stunning 85-78 defeat in their ACC opener vs Boston College then bounced back with a 108-70 spanking of Charleston in it's most recent trip on the hardwood. Hansbrough, Lawson and company enter this contest on a 19 game (12-7 ATS) road winning streak, a 15-5 (10-10 ATS) record vs conference foes and a 16-7 ATS mark playing top end teams who have won 80% or more of their games.

Meanwhile, Wake Forest has shown just how good it's young and talented team is by remaining undefeated through thirteen including an impressive 94-87 victory in Provo last Saturday snapping BYU's 53 game home winning streak. Deacons looking to stay undefeated at home (8-0, 6-2 ATS) this season have won eighteen of it's last twenty (13-5-1 ATS) in front of the frenzied home crowd. Although Wake has lost four straight both SU & ATS vs Heels, Deacons aren't to be sold short with it's slightly better defense and ability to shoot a whopping 51.2% from the field.

Re: NCAAB News and Notes Sunday 1/11

Sunday Research
By Indiancowboy

Penn State vs. Wisconsin

I"ve actually rode Penn State several times this season and want to badly here as this team has been great ATS wise in the Big10. Heck, I even wrote an article about them yesterday and they play against Minnesota today. But, getting 6.5 points is just not enough for me to take them against Minny albeit I think they get inside the number and Minnesota is a low scoring team and Penn State should be competitive here today.

Iowa vs. Michigan

This game is about to start, but I do lean on Iowa here, but once again, for someone that does just 1 pod per day, it is tough to lay it on an Iowa team here on the road who barely beat Indiana at home and Michigan comes off a rough game and a scare against Indiana so they could play better here today. no thanks.

Wisconsin vs. Purdue

This is a game that Wisconsin can win outright. After all, they are the better ranked PR team but the catch here is the fact that Purdue is 0-2 in conference play and undoubtedly wants to bounce-back here as they are back at home and need a big win at home. I can see this going either way as Purdue will undoubtedly get up for this game as they are still winless in conference play.
