Wednesday's Tip Sheet
By Brian Edwards

How could he not break a smile after draining his 10th 3-pointer to put a dagger in Tennessee’s comeback bid? He would be Jodie Meeks, who made history Tuesday night at Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville.

Meeks put on a performance for the ages, one that will go down as the most brilliant in Kentucky’s glorious basketball history. Meeks dropped 54 on the Vols to lead UK to a 90-72 win as a six-point underdog. The Wildcats hooked up money-line backers with a plus-200 return (paid $200 on $100 bets).

Meeks scored 54-freakin’ points. And he only needed 22 shots to break Dan Issel’s school record that had stood for 39 years. Kentucky basketball lore includes dozens of great scorers, but none ever enjoyed the night Meeks had on Rocky Top.

Not Jack “Goose” Givens or Kyle Macy or Kenny “Sky” Walker. Not Rex Chapman or Jamal Mashburn or Antoine Walker. Not even on Richie Farmer’s hottest night. No UK big men like Mel Turpin or Sam Bowie ever scored 54. Neither did shooters like Travis Ford or Tony Delk.

Meeks scored 54 points and grabbed eight rebounds and dished out four assists compared to just one turnover. He also put the ‘Cats back into the Top 25 (starting next week) and gave them the look of a contender.

In other Tuesday games, Ohio St. thumped Indiana to easily cash tickets as a double-digit favorite. FSU went on the road and won outright at NC St. And Memphis barely escaped Tulsa unscathed for its 45th consecutive win in Conference USA play. To tonight’s action…

**Duke at Georgia Tech**

--Las Vegas Sports Consultants opened Duke (14-1 straight up, 8-6 against the spread) as a 10 ½-point favorite with a total of 145. As of early this morning, most sports books had the Blue Devils at 11 ½.

--Georgia Tech (9-6 SU, 4-7 ATS) has lost four of its last seven games, limping to a 1-6 spread record in the process. The Yellow Jackets are looking to bounce back from a 68-61 loss at Maryland. On the bright side, they snapped a six-game ATS slide by hooking up their backers as eight-point road underdogs.

--Coach K’s team improved to 2-0 in ACC play with Saturday’s 66-58 win at FSU. Gerald Henderson erupted for 25 points to pace the Blue Devils, but they allowed the ‘Noles to garner the backdoor cover as 9 ½-point underdogs.

--Duke has only played three true road games this year, going 2-1 SU and 1-2 ATS. The Blue Devils’ lone loss of the season came at Michigan, but they have wins at Purdue and at FSU. Since the leaving Ann Arbor in defeat, they have won six in a row with a 3-2 ATS mark.

--Duke has won eight of the last nine games against the Yellow Jackets, cashing tickets at a 6-3 clip. The ‘under’ has cashed in eight consecutive head-to-head meetings between these ACC adversaries.

--The ‘under’ is 9-4 overall for Duke, cashing in each of its last four games. The ‘under’ is 7-4 overall for Ga. Tech, 5-2 in its last seven outings.

--ESPN will have the telecast at 7:00 p.m. Eastern.

**Syracuse at Georgetown**

--LVSC opened Georgetown (11-3 SU, 5-5 ATS) as a seven-point favorite with a total of 139. As of early this morning, most spots had the Hoyas as six-point ‘chalk.’

--Syracuse (16-1 SU, 7-6 ATS) has won all five games it has played outside the friendly confines of the Carrier Dome. The Orange beat Florida and Kansas in a tournament in Kansas City. Then in three true road contests, they have beaten Memphis, South Florida and Rutgers. Jim Boeheim’s bunch is 4-1 ATS with the lone non-cover coming in the win at USF as a seven-point favorite.

--Georgetown has failed to cover the spread in three straight games. After winning at UConn in the Big East opener, the Hoyas dropped back-to-back games (vs. Pitt and at Notre Dame) before responding with Saturday’s home win over the Providence. The 82-75 victory over the Friars wasn’t enough to cash tickets, however, as John Thompson III’s team went off as an 11 ½-point ‘chalk.’

--Paul Harris led the ‘Cuse to Saturday’s 82-66 win at Rutgers as a seven-point favorite. Harris scored 26 points and grabbed six rebounds, while Jonny Flynn had 15 points, nine assists, seven rebounds and a nasty highlight-reel dunk.

--The ‘Cuse is 3-0 both SU and ATS as an underdog this year. Meanwhile, the Hoyas are 2-1 ATS as single-digit favorites. They are 8-1 SU at home, 3-2 ATS.

--Georgetown had seen four straight ‘unders’ before the ‘over’ hit in its latest win against Providence. For the season, the Hoyas have watched the ‘under’ go 6-4 overall, but the ‘over’ is 3-2 in their home assignments.

--The ‘under’ is 6-2 in the last eight head-to-head meetings between these bitter Big East rivals.

--Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Eastern on ESPN2.

**Baylor at Texas A&M**

--LVSC opened Texas A&M (14-2 SU, 4-4 ATS) as a one-point favorite with a total of 139. As of early this morning, most spots had the Aggies as the 1 ½-point underdogs.

--Baylor (13-2 SU, 4-3 ATS) is playing its first road game since winning 58-52 at Washington St. back on Dec. 6. In fact, that’s the Bears only true road contest of the season.

--Baylor is coming off a 73-61 win over Texas Tech in its Big 12 lid-lifter. The Bears failed to take the cash, however, as 13-point home favorites. Kevin Rogers had 14 points and 14 rebounds for the winners.

--Texas A&M dropped its Big 12 opener Saturday 72-61 at Oklahoma St. The Aggies failed to cover the number as seven-point underdogs. They own three quality non-conference wins over Alabama, LSU and Arizona with their lone non-conference loss coming to Tulsa by a mere point on a neutral court.

--Texas A&M is unbeaten in 10 home games, but the Aggies are winless in their only two lined home outings.

--The ‘under’ is 5-3 overall for the Aggies, 2-0 in their home outings.

--Baylor is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 head-to-head meetings between these conference rivals.

--ESPN2 will provide television coverage at 9:30 p.m. Eastern.

**B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**

--How about this high praise for Davidson’s Stephen Curry from Bobby Knight on ESPN last night: “He’s as good a passer as we’ve ever had in college basketball.”

--Vandy sophomore center A.J. Ogilvy is "questionable" for tonight's home game vs. Georgia. Ogilvy missed Saturday's 70-60 loss at Kentucky with a bruised heel he suffered Friday. The Aussie was a first-team All-SEC choice last season. He's averaging 16.5 points and 7.2 rebounds this year.

--The Vols entered Tuesday's loss to Kentucky giving up more than 75 points per game, which was good for last in the SEC. Bruce Pearl has to be irate at his team for a lack of defensive intensity. Quite frankly, Pearl has a lot to be concerned with when it comes to his underachieving squad.

--Florida head coach will Billy Donovan will be gunning for his 300th win at the school tonight at Auburn. The Gators are short road favorites. Donovan has taken UF to the NCAA Tournament in nine of his 12 seasons, making three Final Fours and winning two national championships. Before Donovan arrived in Gainesville and the O-Dome turned into the House of Horrors, the Gators had been to the Big Dance just five times in school history (three times under the late Stormin' Norman Sloan and twice under Lon Kruger).

--South Atlanta High School’s Derrick Favors will decide today between NC St., Georgia and Georgia Tech. Favors is considered by many to be the country’s No. 1 prep player. His decision will have a major impact on the coaching tenures of all three coaches – Dennis Felton, Paul Hewitt and Sidney Lowe. In other words, the other two coaches could be coaching elsewhere before too long if they don't score Favors.

Re: NCAAB News and Notes Wednesday 1/14

(3) Duke (14-1, 8-6 ATS) at Georgia Tech (9-6, 4-7 ATS)

Duke guns for its seventh consecutive victory, including its second on the road to start the ACC season, when it heads to Atlanta for a matchup with the Yellow Jackets.

The Blue Devils overcame a sluggish first half at Florida State on Saturday – they led just 19-15 at the half – then turned it on over the final 20 minutes, rolling to a 66-58 victory. However, despite a 41-11 spurt to start the second half, Duke let off the gas down the stretch and failed to cover as a 10-point road chalk, its second consecutive non-cover after a 5-1 ATS run.

Georgia Tech has alternated wins and losses in its last five games, including its first three ACC contests. On Saturday, the Yellow Jackets went to Maryland and blew a first-half lead, falling 68-61. However, they got the cash as an eight-point road underdog to halt a five-game ATS slide.

Duke has won three straight meetings in this rivalry (2-1 ATS), with the contests decided by 9, 13 and 12 points. The two double-digit wins came last year, with the Blue Devils prevailing 71-58 at home, but falling short as a 15½-point favorite, and 82-70 as an 11½-point chalk in the ACC tournament. The home team is 3-0 SU (2-1 ATS) in the last three regular-season battles, including Georgia Tech’s 74-63 win as a 3½-point favorite in the most recent clash in Atlanta two years ago.

Additionally, Duke is 14-5 ATS in the last 19 meetings in this rivarly and 6-2 ATS in its last eight trips to Atlanta. Lastly, the favorite has cashed in 14 of the last 18 head-to-head matchups.

Duke ranks 15th in the nation in scoring (81.5 ppg) and 39th in field-goal shooting (47.4 percent), and it is allowing just 60.5 ppg on 38.7 percent shooting. Of the team’s 14 wins, 12 have been by double digits. Meanwhile, although the Yellow Jackets are averaging 74.1 points per game for the season (45.3 percent), they’ve scored 67 or fewer in six of their last 10 games, including four of their last six at home.

In addition to failing to cash in its last two outings, the Blue Devils are mired in ATS funks of 3-8-1 in league play and 5-12-1 on Wednesday. Georgia Tech is 5-1 ATS in its last six on Wednesday, but 1-4 ATS in its last five at home. Also, Saturday’s spread-cover at Maryland ended the Yellow Jackets’ 0-3 ATS funk as an underdog.

The under is 8-0 in the last eight Duke-Georgia Tech showdowns and 5-1 in the last six meetings in Atlanta. Also, for Duke, the under is on runs of 17-5 overall (4-0 last four), 6-0 in ACC play and 4-0 on Wednesday, while the Yellow Jackets have stayed under the total in five of their last seven overall and eight straight against teams with a winning record. Conversely, the over is 13-6 in Georgia Tech’s last 19 ACC games and 6-1 in its last seven on Wednesday.

ATS ADVANTAGE: DUKE and UNDER


(8) Syracuse (16-1, 7-6 ATS) at (13) Georgetown (11-3, 5-5 ATS)

The loaded Big East features yet another matchup of Top 15 schools, this time with Syracuse going south to the nation’s capital for a clash with Georgetown at the Verizon Center.

The Orange ran their winning streak to eight in a row with Saturday’s 82-66 rout of Rutgers as a seven-point road favorite. Syracuse is off to a 3-0 start in Big East action (2-1 ATS), with two of the wins coming on the road (1-1 ATS). In fact, Jim Boeheim’s squad is a perfect 5-0 (4-1 ATS) away from the Carrier Dome, with wins over Florida, Kansas, Memphis and South Florida, in addition to the victory at Rutgers.

The Hoyas halted a two-game slide with Saturday’s hard-fought 82-75 win over Providence, but they came up short as an 11½-point home favorite for their third consecutive ATS setback, all in Big East play. The last time Georgetown covered a spread was on Dec. 29, when it opened the Big East season with an impressive 74-63 upset at then-No. 2 UConn as a 6½-point underdog.

Syracuse is on a 3-1 SU and 4-0 ATS run in this rivalry – all as an underdog – and it has won eight of the last 10 meetings since 2003, both SU and ATS. Last year, the Orange took the Hoyas to overtime in Washington, D.C., losing 64-62 as a 12-point ‘dog, then rolled to a 77-70 home win as a three-point pup a month later. Syracuse is 4-1 ATS in its last four visits to Georgetown.

The Orange average 81.1 ppg on 50.3 percent shooting, they’ve scored more than 70 in all but two contests and they’ve put up 82 or more 10 times. Tonight, they run up against a Georgetown defense that’s giving up just 59.8 ppg overall (36.7 percent) and 57 ppg at home (35 percent). However, that Hoyas’ D has been shaky lately, allowing 70, 73 and 75 points in the last three after holding nine of their first 11 foes to less than 70 points.

In addition to cashing in four of its five roadies this season, Syracuse is riding ATS hot streaks of 4-1 overall, 5-2 in Big East play and 4-1 against winning teams, but the Orange are 2-5 ATS in their last seven on Wednesday. The Hoyas are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 on Wednesday, but they’ve failed to cash in four of their last five Big East contests going back to last season.

The under is on runs of 4-1 for Georgetown overall, 50-23 for Georgetown at home, 39-18 for Georgetown in Big East play, 38-18-1 for Georgetown after a non-cover, 5-0 for Georgetown on Wednesday, 9-3 for Syracuse on Wednesday and 11-5 for Syracuse following an ATS triumph. Lastly, the under is 4-1 in the last four battles in this rivalry and 4-0 in the last four at the Verizon Center.

ATS ADVANTAGE: SYRACUSE and UNDER


(25) Michigan (13-3, 8-3-1 ATS) at Illinois (14-2, 8-5 ATS)

Michigan shoots for its fourth straight win, including its second this month against Illinois, when it heads to Champaign, Ill., for a rematch with the Illini at Assembly Hall.

The Wolverines dropped their conference opener to Wisconsin, losing 73-61 as a 3½-point home favorite on New Year’s Eve. But they rebounded with a 74-64 thumping of Illinois as a two-point home favorite, then followed that with a 72-66 overtime win at Indiana a week ago (failing to cover as a 7½-point favorite) and a 64-49 rout of Iowa on Sunday (cashing as a 7½-point chalk).

Sandwiched around their loss at Michigan, the Illini beat Purdue 71-67 in overtime as a 7½-point road underdog, then blasted Indiana 76-45 as a 17½-point home favorite Saturday. Illinois has won eight of its last nine overall – the only blemish being the loss at Michigan – and Bruce Weber’s squad is 11-1 at home (5-4 ATS).

In addition to the 10-point home win over Illinois on Jan. 4, the Wolverines also knocked off the Illini 49-43 as a two-point home underdog in last year’s second meeting. However, in its last two trips to Assembly Hall, Michigan got blown out, losing 54-42 as an eight-point underdog in 2007 and 75-57 as an 11-point pup a year ago – the Wolverines’ only non-covers against the Illini in the last eight meetings. The host is on a 7-0 SU roll in this rivalry and is 15-2 ATS in the last 17 clashes, with Illinois going 4-1 ATS in the last five at Assembly Hall.

Both squads sport similar offensive numbers – the Wolverines average 72.7 ppg on 43.7 percent shooting; Illinois nets 71.2 ppg on 48.3 percent shooting. The biggest discrepancy: Michigan yields 70.5 ppg (42.6 percent) on the road, while the Illini hold their visitors to 55.6 ppg (40 percent).

Although it is 8-3-1 ATS on the season, Michigan is still stuck in ATS ruts of 2-5-1 on the highway, 9-24-2 in road games against teams with a winning home mark, 1-9-1 on Wednesday and 0-5 in the game after holding an opponent to less than 50 points. Illinois is on positive ATS streaks of 7-2 overall, 9-3 against winning teams and 27-12-2 on Wednesday.

For Michigan, the over is on runs of 6-1 overall and 5-0 on Wednesday, but the under is 8-2 in its last 10 road games and 11-4 in its last 15 Big Ten contests. The under is also 6-1 in Illinois’ last seven at home and 6-2 in its last eight on Wednesday. However, the over is 5-2 in the last seven head-to-head matchups between these schools, with the meeting earlier this month eclipsing the posted number.

ATS ADVANTAGE: ILLINOIS and UNDER


(2) Wake Forest (14-0, 6-4 ATS) at Boston College (13-4, 7-5 ATS)

Two ACC rivals with impressive wins over North Carolina on their ledger hook up at the Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, Mass., where Boston College looks to hand the second-ranked Demon Deacons their first loss of the season.

Wake Forest matched its best start in school history with Sunday’s 92-89 ACC-opening win over then-No. 3 North Carolina, cashing as a 6½-point home underdog, its third consecutive spread-cover. The teams were tied at 44 at the half, but the Demon Deacons took the lead with 14 minutes to go and never gave it up, thanks mostly to the play of Jeff Teague (career-high 34 points) and Chris McFarland (20 points, tying a season high). Wake Forest, which is 14-0 for the first time since 1980-81, shot 47.5 percent from the field and held the Tar Heels to just 35 percent shooting overall and 6-for-23 from 3-point land.

Exactly one week before Wake Forest toppled the Tar Heels, Boston College went into Chapel Hill and handed North Carolina its first defeat, winning 85-78 as a massive 23-point underdog. However, the Eagles have been unable to build off that monumental victory, suffering a stunning 82-70 loss to Harvard as a 16½-point home favorite a week ago tonight, then falling 77-71 to Miami, Fla., as a 2½-point home favorite. B.C.’s defense has been nonexistent lately, allowing an average of 78.3 ppg in the last four games.

In last year’s lone meeting – which occurred 367 days ago – Boston College dismantled the Demon Deacons 112-73 as a 3½-point home chalk. The Eagles are 4-0 SU and ATS against the Deacons since joining the ACC – all as a favorite – including two blowout wins at home by margins of 39 and 15 points.

Wake Forest now ranks fourth in the nation in both scoring offense (85.7 ppg) and field-goal shooting (51 percent). Defensively, the Demon Deacons give up 66 ppg, but they hold the opposition to 36.3 percent shooting overall, 28 percent shooting from 3-point range and 30 rebounds per game, figures that rank sixth, 10th and first in the nation, respectively. Away from home, Wake is even more impressive offensively, scoring 91.7 ppg on 52.4 percent shooting.

Meanwhile, Boston College puts up 77.5 ppg on 45.3 percent shooting, scoring 70 or more in all but four of its 17 games. In fact, the Eagles have tallied at least 80 points 11 times, but they’ve allowed 70 or more in eight of their last 13 outings.

Wake Forest is 5-2 ATS in its last seven overall, but 2-5 ATS in its last seven on the road and 2-5 ATS in its last seven ACC contests. B.C. has failed to cover in four of its last five on Wednesday, but is 19-7-1 ATS in its last 27 home games against teams with a winning road mark.

For the Demon Deacons, the over is on stretches of 6-2 on the road and 4-1 in ACC play, and the over for Boston College is on runs of 4-1 overall and 40-19-1 at home. Also, the last three head-to-head meetings between these schools have topped the posted total, including the two at Boston College.

ATS ADVANTAGE: BOSTON COLLEGE and OVER

Wednesday Research
By Indiancowboy

Michigan State vs. Penn State

I know it seems too easy here to think Michigan State is just going to roll. But, I have been high on Penn State all year. I took them when they were at Wisconsin as 9.5 dogs and they hung fine. This team is a 5 point home dog here. Note that, yes, Michgan State did defeat Minnesota by 12 on the road and Northwestern by 11 on the road and for the most part handled Ohio State and Kansas easily at home. Minny and Northwestern believe it or not or outside the top 40 in most power rankings. Penn State is a decent team that has beat the likes of Georgia Tech on the road outright, comes off a brutal 20 point loss to Minnesotta on the road, and defeated a top 2 power ranking team in Purdue at home by 3. Heck, Purdue is ranked even higher in the PR than Michigan State as the Spartans are a top 25 PR team. Michigan State has covered both conference games on the road when faced with a similar spread. The public was on Michigan State both of those times at over a 70% consensus clip as they are now. Having said that, Penn State comes home after a tough loss to the Gophers on the road and did beat Purdue at home (a better PR team than Michigan State at this point 67-64) and that was in a very similar situation as they came off a loss to Wisconsin on the road to get that SU win over the Boilermakers. I can see this both ways so I respectfully am going to stay away.
