NCAAB News and Notes Tuesday 1/20

Ohio State (13-3, 7-5 ATS) at (25) Illinois (15-3, 10-4 ATS)

One day after earning a spot at the tail end of the Top 25, Illinois will try to justify the ranking when it hosts Ohio State at Assembly Hall in Champaign, Ill.

The Illini surged into the rankings despite Saturday’s tough 63-57 loss at then-No. 7 Michigan State, though they did cover as an eight-point road underdog. Illinois has split its last four games and is 3-2 SU (4-1 ATS) in Big Ten action, including 2-0 SU and ATS at home with double-digit wins over Indiana (76-45) and Michigan (66-51). The Illini, who can match last season’s victory total with a win tonight, have faced four ranked teams in their first five league contests, and they’re allowing just 60 ppg during this five-game stretch.

Ohio State goes back on the road after Saturday’s impressive 65-58 win at No. 25 Michigan as a 5½-point road underdog. The Buckeyes have won three in a row and cashed in their last three lined games (all in conference action). Like the Illini, OSU is 3-2 in Big Ten play (3-2 ATS), averaging just 65.4 points per game but yielding only 62.2 ppg.

The home team is 11-4 ATS in the last 15 series meetings, but the visitor got the cash in both of last year’s matchups. Ohio State, which has won the last five in this rivalry (4-1 ATS), prevailed 74-58 as a four-point road underdog last January, then 19 days later the Buckeyes took down Illinois 64-58 in Columbus, but came up just short as a 6½-point favorite. OSU is allowing just 55.8 ppg during its five-game winning streak in this series, and the ‘dog has gotten the money four times during this stretch.

Both squads are on a bevy of positive pointspread streaks. Ohio State’s ATS runs include 12-5 overall, 4-1 on the highway, 7-1 after a spread-cover, 10-4 following a SU win and 6-0-1 on Tuesday. The Illini are on ATS upticks of 10-3 overall, 6-2 in Big Ten play, 9-4 after a SU loss, 5-1 against winning teams and 4-1 on Tuesday.

The under is on runs of 4-0 for Ohio State on the road, 5-2 for Ohio State after a victory, 5-2 for Illinois overall, 7-1 for Illinois at home, 4-0 for Illinois after a defeat and 35-16-1 for Illinois after a spread-cover. Also, the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in this rivalry, but four of the last five at Assembly Hall have gone over the total.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UNDER


N.C. State (10-5, 6-5 ATS) at (2) Duke (16-1, 9-6-1 ATS)

On the cusp of returning to the top of the national rankings, Duke puts a nine-game winning streak on the line when it entertains North Carolina State at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C.

The Blue Devils scored a pair of double-digit ACC road wins last week at Florida State (66-58 as a 9½-point favorite) and Georgia Tech (70-56 as a 12-point chalk). Then they returned to non-conference action Saturday and dumped No. 13 Georgetown 76-67, pushing as a nine-point home choice. During its nine-game winning streak, Duke’s average margin of victory is 18.9 points and it is allowing just 51.4 ppg. The Blue Devils are 10-0 at home (4-4-1 ATS), winning by an average of 25 ppg.

The Wolfpack halted a three-game slide and got their first ACC win on Saturday, topping Georgia Tech 76-71 in overtime, barely covering as a four-point home favorite. N.C. State is 1-2 SU and 1-1-1 ATS in ACC play, including a 63-51 loss at Clemson as an 11½-point underdog in its lone conference roadie to this point. After going six straight games allowing 68 points or fewer, the Wolfpack have surrendered 78 and 71 in their last two.

Duke is 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings with N.C. State, and it has won 10 straight at home in this rivalry by an average of 18.2 ppg. Last year, the Blue Devils cruised to a 92-72 home win and barely covered as an 18-point favorite, then struggled to an 87-86 road victory, never threatening to cash as a 10½-point chalk. The host is 9-4-1 ATS in the last 14 series battles, including Duke’s current 4-1 ATS run when hosting the Wolfpack.

N.C. State has cashed in five of its last six following a SU victory, but otherwise the Wolfpack are mired in ugly pointspread slides of 11-26-1 overall, 2-8 on the road and 2-10 in ACC play. Duke is 5-2-1 ATS in its last eight at home and 5-0 ATS in its last five on Tuesday.

The last eight meetings in this rivalry – including the last four at Cameron Indoor – have gone over the total. Also, the over is on runs of 10-4 for the Blue Devils on Tuesday, 8-0 for the Blue Devils against winning teams, 8-0 for N.C. State against winning teams, 10-2 for N.C. State after a SU win and 18-6 for N.C. State in ACC play. Conversely, the under is on stretches of 16-5 for Duke overall, 15-4 for Duke at home, 7-0 for Duke against league foes and 4-0 for the Wolfpack on the road.

ATS ADVANTAGE: DUKE

Tips and Trends

Ohio State at #25 Illinois


Ohio State: The Buckeyes missed out on making the Top 25 this week despite going 2-0 and can make a statement by beating Illinois for the sixth straight time. They have held the Illini to just 55.4 points on 34.8 percent shooting in winning the last five meetings and were very impressive in back-to-back wins over Michigan and Indiana last week. Ohio State has won its last two conference games by a combined 31 points with a rematch against Michigan State on deck this Sunday at home.

Ohio State is 12-5 ATS in its last 17 games overall.
The UNDER is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

Key Injuries - F Nikola Kecman (knee) is OUT.

PROJECTED SCORE: 60 (Side Play of the Day)

Illinois (-7.5, O/U 121.5): The Illini hope to use outstanding defense to snap a five-game series losing streak against Ohio State. They have split games against Michigan and Michigan State last week - going 2-0 ATS - despite being held under 70 points in both games. Illinois leads the Big Ten in scoring defense, surrendering just 57 points per game. “I told our kids, the key word is ‘coachable' - they have to listen and learn if we’re going to make strides,” Illini head coach Bruce Weber said. “We have to pick up our intensity. We have to finish games against top teams in the country if we’re going to be one of the top teams in the country.”

Home team is 11-4 ATS in the last 15 meetings.
The UNDER is 7-1 in Illinois' last 8 home games.

Key Injuries - NONE

PROJECTED SCORE: 61

Re: NCAAB News and Notes Tuesday 1/20

Can't-miss college hoops
By MATT SEVERANCE

No need to check your local paper for the best upcoming college basketball matchups. Here is a look at five intriguing weekday games and you can check back on Friday for the best of the weekend slate.

Ohio State at Illinois (Tuesday, 7 p.m., ESPN)

The Illini had a very good chance of ending Michigan State's 27-game home winning streak Saturday but faded down the stretch. Starters Demetri McCamey, Trent Meacham and Chester Frazier made one more field goal than you and I did – combining to shoot 1-of-17. The entire starting lineup accounted for only 25 points. It was the third straight season the Illini had a halftime lead in East Lansing only to lose.

“We didn’t execute or have the toughness to win in the last five minutes,.” Illinois coach Bruce Weber said to reporters afterward. “They had 10 layups in the second half. That was the difference in the game.”

The loser of this game will drop three games behind the Spartans in the loss column in the Big Ten. OSU has covered its past three games and beat Illinois by six in the teams' last meeting, almost a year ago to the day. The Buckeyes have won five in a row in the series and have never lost to the Illini when scoring 90-plus points.

North Carolina State at Duke (Tuesday, 8 p.m., ESPN)

Duke should get some No. 1 votes this week after an impressive 76-67 win over Georgetown on Saturday. It was the Blue Devils' 68th straight non-conference home win. The Blue Devils became just the 12th team in three-plus seasons to shoot at least 45 percent against the Hoyas.

The Blue Devils have won eight games in a row and Gerald Henderson has been a big part of that. The junior swingman has scored in double figures in nine straight games and has three in a row with at least 19 points. He had a team-high 23 against the Hoyas.

The Wolfpack rallied from a 10-point deficit with under five minutes remaining to beat Georgia Tech in overtime Saturday. They lost both games to Duke last season.

Tuesday's Research
By Indiancowboy

Michigan vs. Penn State

Michigan has now lost back to back games to Ohio State at home and that was off the heels of a tough loss to Illinois on the road One would find it tough to see Michigan lose 3 in a row but it is quite possible. Why not? Penn State is 14-5. They come off a nice DD win over Indiana on the road which not even Michigan could do as the Hoosiers took them to overtime. Plus, this team did beat Purdue at home and lost to Michigan State by just 5 at home. Michigan lost by 14 to Illinois on the road and I'm not saying they lose by that much here to Penn State, but this Penn State team lost by just 5points to the best team in the conference in their house. Then, they beat Purdue at home in their house. This is the same team that beat Northwestern at home by 4 and lost to Wisconsin by just 4 on the road. Heck, this team even beat Georgia Tech on the road Outright. I just don't want to go against Michigan considering they have lost 2 straight conference games, need to step up and have revenge against Penn State from last year's loss on the road, yet, Penn State is also playing great basketball right now and at home as well. no thanks.
