Sunday Tip Sheet
By Judd Hall

Saturday was a college basketball bettor’s wet dream with so many tilts on the card. And just like the good book says, Sunday will be the day of rest with just seven games featuring Top 25 squads. But some of those teams won’t take it easy as their matches will go a long way towards helping them out in the conference standings.

Let’s get to it…

Louisville Cardinals at Syracuse Orange

--Louisville (14-3 straight up, 10-7 against the spread) has won all five matches they’ve had in Big East play thus far, helping them in being ranked ninth in the AP poll and eighth in the LVSC rankings. The Cardinals are coming off of a 78-59 thrashing of Rutgers in Piscataway last Wednesday to easily cover the 11-point spread.

--There was some concern that Rick Pitino’s crew would have a letdown after beating then No. 1 Pittsburgh. They quickly dispelled those worries by entering the intermission against the Scarlet Knights with a 40-20 lead. Terrence Williams made certain that his Cards wouldn’t falter by registering 23 points, 11 rebounds and an assist.

--The Orange had the look of a dominant squad to start this season by winning 16 of their first 17 games. Yet Syracuse (17-3 SU, 8-8 ATS) has stumbled recently by losing two of its last three matches. Jim Boeheim’s program looked like it would keep close against Pittsburgh by trailing 31-28 after the first half. But the ‘Cuse only completed 43 percent of its shots from the field en route to a 78-60 defeat. Even worse for the betting public is the fact that the Orange failed to cover the 9 ½-point spread, the second time they failed to cover in their last three contests.

--Syracuse has performed extremely well at home this season, going 12-1 SU. Bettors haven’t been as lucky when backing the Orange as they’re 4-5 ATS in board affairs. That poor covering skill has gone on over the last two seasons with a 26-6 SU mark, but 12-14 ATS.

--Louisville has gone 3-0 SU and ATS in Big East play this season on the road. That shouldn’t surprise anyone as the Cardinals are 16-9 SU and 16-8-1 ATS when playing away from home over the last two years.

--The Cards have won three of their last four meetings, going 2-1-1 ATS, against Syracuse since 2000. The ‘over’ has cashed tickets in three of those matches as well.

--ESPN360.com will be broadcasting this Big East showdown at 12:00 p.m. EST.

Michigan State Spartans at Ohio State Buckeyes

--There is no disputing the fact that Michigan State (15-3 SU, 7-7-1 ATS) is the class of the Big Ten this season. Yet there is a lot of talk now that the Spartans might not be as good as advertised after falling to Northwestern as 12-point home favorites on Jan. 21, 70-63. Some could blame the fact that Kevin Coble had 31 points against Tom Izzo’s squad. But the real reason for the Spartans’ defeat comes down to their inability to hit from beyond the arc (23.9 three-point percentage) and they couldn’t keep hold of the ball to save their life (18 turnovers).

--The Buckeyes started the season by reeling off nine straight victories. However, Ohio State’s () youth has started to show up as they’ve dropped four of its last eight matches. A big problem for the Bucks is they haven’t been successful against deeper teams. That issue came to the surface for Thad Matta’s bunch against Illinois. The Illini have five players averaging at least 10 points per game. And they used that depth to thwart Ohio State on Jan. 20, 67-49. OSU failed to cover as a 7 ½-point road pup. Of course, it also doesn’t help when you turn the ball over 20 times like the Buckeyes did in Champaign.

--We should expect a low scoring affair here as the Buckeyes have seen the ‘under’ go 8-4 this year. And the Spartans have had low scoring contests in nine of their 15 matches that were on the board.

--The home team has posted an impressive 5-1 mark SU. Yet the home clubs have gone just 2-4 ATS. The ‘under’ is 4-1-1 during that time as well.

--Ohio State has gone 10-1 SU and 3-4 ATS at Value City Arena this year. The Bucks have been strong at home over the last two years by going 27-4 SU, but just 11-11-1 ATS.

--The Spartans have been a tough out when playing away from home this season, going 7-1 SU and 4-2-1 ATS.

--You can catch this Big Ten battle on CBS at 3:45 p.m. EST.

Re: NCAAB News and Notes Sunday 1/25

(9) Louisville (14-3, 10-7 ATS) at (8) Syracuse (17-3, 8-8 ATS)

Syracuse faces its fourth consecutive ranked Big East opponent when it entertains No. 9 Louisville at the Carrier Dome.

The Orange started the Big East season with three straight wins (2-1 ATS) against non-ranked foes, part of a seven-game overall winning streak. However, with the competition stiffening, Jim Boeheim’s squad has struggled a bit, losing road games to 13th-ranked Georgetown (88-74 on Jan. 14) and top-ranked Pitt (78-60 on Monday). Sandwiched in the middle was last Saturday’s impressive 93-74 rout of No. 12 Notre Dame as a 3½-point home chalk

Louisville followed up last Saturday’s 61-60 home win over No. 1 Pitt with Wednesday’s 78-59 rout of Rutgers, covering as an 11-point road chalk. The Cardinals have won six in a row and they’ve cashed in all five Big East games to date. Rick Pitino’s club is averaging 73.2 points per game on just 44 percent shooting in league play, but it is holding league opponents to just 62.4 ppg on 38.3 percent shooting.

The host is 5-0 SU and 3-1-1 ATS in this rivalry dating to 1998. In last year’s lone clash, Louisville cruised to a 61-50 victory, barely cashing as a 9½-point home favorite.

While the Cardinals have won and covered all three of their Big East road games, Syracuse is 12-1 on its home floor (4-5 ATS in lined games), winning by an average of 15 ppg (83-68) and outshooting its visitors by a margin of 51.4 percent to 37.9 percent.

In addition to its five-game ATS winning streak, Louisville is on pointspread tears of 20-6-1 on the road, 37-15-2 in Big East action and 8-2 on Sunday. Syracuse is 5-1 ATS in its last six after a non-cover and 5-2 ATS in its last seven against teams with a winning record.

The Orange are on over streaks of 4-1 overall (all in Big East play), 4-1 at home and 6-2 after an outright loss, and Louisville has topped the total in four of its last six outings, including two of three on the road. Finally, the over is 3-1 in the last four meetings in this series.

ATS ADVANTAGE: LOUISVILLE and OVER


(7) Michigan State (15-3, 7-7-1 ATS) at Ohio State (13-4, 7-6 ATS)

Michigan State returns to the court for the first time since Wednesday’s shocking home loss to Northwestern when it pays a visit to Value City Arena for a Big Ten clash with Ohio State.

The Spartans saw their 28-game home winning streak and an 11-game overall winning run end in a 70-63 loss to Northwestern as a hefty 12-point chalk. Michigan State, which has been held to 63 points in each of its last two games (both at home), shot just 40.4 percent from the field, including missing 16 of 21 three-point tries, and it lost despite an overwhelming 39-19 rebounding edge.

Ohio State has been idle since Tuesday’s 67-49 loss at Illinois as a 7½-point road underdog, halting a three-game SU and two-game ATS winning streak. The 49-point output was the Buckeyes’ second-lowest of the season, one point more than they scored in a 76-48 home loss to West Virginia on Dec. 27.

Michigan State is 5-1 (2-3-1 ATS) in Big Ten play, including 3-0 (2-0-1 ATS) on the road. The Buckeyes are 3-3 SU and ATS in league action, including 2-0 (1-1 ATS) at Value City Arena. Overall, the Spartans are 7-1 on the highway (4-2-1 ATS), including 4-0 in true road games, while Ohio State is 10-1 at home (3-4 ATS).

These teams met back on Jan. 6 in East Lansing, Mich., and the Spartans prevailed 67-58, but Ohio State scored a layup in the final seconds to get the cash as an 11-point underdog. The Buckeyes are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings, all as an underdog. In fact, the pup has cashed in six of the last eight in this series. In last year’s battle in Columbus, Ohio State won 63-54 as a two-point favorite to end Michigan State’s 5-0 ATS winning streak at Value City Arena.

Michigan State is on pointspread runs of 5-1-1 on the road, 6-0 after an outright loss and 6-2 after a non-cover. Ohio State has cashed in nine of its last 13 home contests, but otherwise is in ATS ruts of 1-4 on Sunday and 2-5 against winning teams.

The under is on streaks of 4-1 for the Spartans after a non-cover, 4-1 for the Spartans against winning teams, 4-1 for Ohio State overall, 12-4 for Ohio State after an outright loss, 19-7 for Ohio State on Sunday and 4-1 in this rivalry.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UNDER


(4) Pitt (17-1, 7-5-1 ATS) at West Virginia (14-4, 6-9 ATS)

West Virginia puts its three-game winning streak on the line when it welcomes fourth-ranked Pitt to Morgantown, W.Va., for a key Big East battle.

Kicking off a five-game stretch in which they will play four Big East foes ranked in the Top 12, the Mountaineers scored an impressive 72-58 victory at Georgetown on Thursday, cashing as a five-point underdog to halt an 0-4 ATS slide. Da’Sean Butler (27 points, eight rebounds) led four West Virginia players in double digits as the team hit 48.4 percent from the field and held the Hoyas to 39.2 percent, including a 2-for-16 effort from three-point range.

Pitt rebounded from its first defeat of the season – last Saturday’s 69-63 loss at Louisville as a two-point underdog – with Monday’s 78-60 destruction of Syracuse, easily covering as a nine-point home choice. Sam Young (game-high 22 points) and DeJuan Blair (20 points, game-high 12 rebounds) led the way for the Panthers, who are averaging 75.7 ppg in Big East play while allowing just 64 ppg.

West Virginia is 4-2 SU but just 2-4 ATS in Big East action, including 2-1 SU (0-3 ATS) in Morgantown. The Mountaineers are 8-1 overall on the home floor, but only 2-4 ATS in lined action.  Pitt is 5-1 (3-3 ATS) in conference, going 2-1 (1-2 ATS) as a visitor.

The Mountaineers ended a four-game losing streak to Pitt last March, winning 76-62 as a 5½-point home favorite. In the first meeting last year, the Panthers eked out a 55-54 win but failed to cover as a three-point home underdog. Despite not getting the cash in the last two battles, Pitt is still on an 11-5-1 ATS run in this rivalry, going 6-3 ATS in its last nine trips to Morgantown. Also, the favorite is 5-1-1 ATS in the last seven head-to-head matchups.

The Panthers are 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight road games and 4-1 ATS in their last five Sunday affairs. West Virginia has failed to cash in four of its last five overall and five of its last six at home, but Bob Huggins’ team is on a solid 17-4 ATS roll when playing on Sunday.

The under is on runs of 4-1 for Pitt on the road, 4-1 for West Virginia on Sunday and 5-2 in this rivalry. However, the over is 9-3 in the Panthers’ last 12 Sunday games and 12-4 in their last 16 versus Big East foes.

ATS ADVANTAGE: PITT

Re: NCAAB News and Notes Sunday 1/25

College basketball bettors' TV guide
By MATT SEVERANCE

It's a good but not great weekend of college basketball on the tube, with three games featuring matchups between top-25 teams. We also will see a new No. 1 team in the land. Check back Sunday for a look at the best matchups coming early next week.

All times are Eastern.

Louisville at Syracuse (Sunday, noon, ESPN360/Big East Network)

Yet another Big East game featuring two top-25 clubs, but this one features two heading in different directions: UL has won six in a row including beating then-No. 1 Pitt (the Cards' third straight win over a ranked team), while the Orange have dropped two of three.

The Cardinals have won 14 of their last 15 regular season conference games over two seasons, which is pretty impressive considering the competition.

"We're the best road team in the Big East the last three years," UL coach Rick Pitino said recently.


Michigan State at Ohio State (Sunday, 3:35 p.m., CBS)

The Spartans were shocked at home by Northwestern on Wednesday night, which no doubt got coach Tom Izzo's attention. Michigan State, which could drop out of sole position of first in the Big Ten with a loss, beat the Buckeyes 67-58 on Jan. 6 but have lost two in a row in Columbus.

Raymar Morgan, the Spartans' leading scorer at the time, played just 18 ineffective minutes against Northwestern because of the flu, but he should be fully recovered by Sunday.
