Re: NCAAB News and Notes Sunday 2/8

(12) Purdue (17-5, 9-9 ATS) at (23) Illinois (18-5, 11-7-1 ATS)

Purdue, looking to get back on track after having its six-game win streak snapped, travels to Assembly Hall to face Illinois in a battle of ranked Big Ten teams.

The Boilermakers lost to Ohio State 80-72 in overtime Tuesday night as a two-point road chalk for their first loss in nearly a month, ending a 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS surge. During its win streak, Purdue held three opponents under 54 points, including a 67-49 home rout of Michigan last Saturday. Despite the setback in Columbus, the Boilermakers are still averaging 69.6 points on 49.2 percent shooting (44.9 percent from 3-point range) over their last five games, while allowing 61.4 ppg on 40.5 percent shooting.

The Fighting Illini have been up and down lately, splitting their last six starts, including dropping two of their last three. On Thursday, Illinois went to Wisconsin and got bounced 63-50 as a four-point road pup for their third straight ATS setback. At home, though, Illinois is 5-0 SU (3-1-1 ATS) in conference play this season, with three double-digit wins and an average winning margin of 15.8 ppg.

Illinois has won and covered in the last two meetings in this rivalry, both in overtime and both on the road, including a 71-67 victory Dec. 30 as an eight-point pup. However, Purdue is 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 head-to-head clashes.

The Boilermakers are on ATS rolls of 4-1 overall, 13-6-1 on the road, 4-1 against teams with a winning record, 19-7-1 in the Big Ten and 5-2 after a non-cover, and they’ve won both their games as an underdog this season. The Illini sport positive ATS streaks of 12-4-1 against teams with a winning percentage above .600, 4-1 after a SU loss, 5-2 after an ATS setback and 5-1-1 as a single-digit chalk, but they are also 0-4 ATS in their last four Sunday games and 1-7 ATS in their last eight at home against teams with a winning road record.

The over for Purdue is on stretches of 5-1 overall (all in the Big Ten), 5-0 on the road and 10-1 on the road against teams with a winning home record. The over is also 4-0 in Illinois’ last four against winning teams, and the total has gone high in each of the last four clashes in this rivalry. However, the under for the Illini is on runs of 6-1 overall (all in Big Ten play), 5-1 at home, 5-1 after a SU loss and 20-8-1 on Sunday.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NONE


Boston College (18-6, 11-8 ATS) at (7) Wake Forest (17-3, 9-7 ATS)

Wake Forest, reeling from a pair of upset road losses, returns to LJVM Coliseum aiming to get back on track against surging Boston College.

Coming off a 76-74 loss at Georgia Tech as an eight-point chalk last Saturday, the Demon Deacons were humiliated Wednesday at Miami, losing 79-52 laying 2½ points, and they’re now 1-3 SU and ATS in their last four games. For the season, Wake has averaged a healthy 81.4 ppg and allowed 67.7, but in the past five games, the Deacons have put up 69.0 ppg while allowing 73.8.

The Eagles have ripped off five straight victories (4-1 ATS), all in ACC play, including an 80-70 win at Virginia on Wednesday as a one-point favorite, the team’s third consecutive SU and ATS conference road win. In its last five contests, B.C. has averaged 76.4 ppg and allowed 69.4 ppg – both exactly on its season averages – and the Eagles have outshot those five opponents by more than five percentage points (45.7-40.2).

Boston College is 4-1 SU and ATS in this short rivalry that began in 2006 when the Eagles joined the ACC, but Wake Forest’s victory and spread-cover came in an 83-63 rout last month as a three-point road chalk. In fact, the favorite has won and cashed in all five series meetings.

The Demon Deacons are on ATS upticks of 15-7-2 at home, 8-0 at home against teams with a winning road record, 4-0 after a SU loss of more than 20 points, 8-2 against teams with a win percentage above .600 and 5-2 on Sunday, but they’re 2-6 ATS as a favorite of less than 20 points. Likewise, the Eagles are on spread-covering sprees of 4-1 on the highway, 5-1 on the road against teams with a winning home mark, 6-2 after a SU win and 4-2 as an underdog this year.

The under is 10-4 in Wake’s last 14 games at home versus teams with a winning road record, but the over is 4-1 in the Deacons’ last five Sunday outings. In addition, the over for Boston College is on runs of 4-1-1 overall, 4-1-1 in roadies and 17-5-1 after a SU win. Lastly, three of the last four series meetings in this rivalry have gone over the total, the one exception being last month’s clash at B.C.

ATS ADVANTAGE: WAKE FOREST


(22) Washington (16-6, 12-8 ATS) at Stanford (14-6, 14-5 ATS)

Washington gears up for its fourth straight Pac-10 road game when it travels to Maples Pavilion to take on Stanford.

The Huskies tumbled at California 86-71 Thursday night as a one-point road chalk, and they’ve now followed up a four-game winning streak (3-1 ATS) by going 1-2 SU and ATS in their last three contests. Washington, which has averaged 79.6 ppg this season, continues to score a ton of points, averaging 83.2 per game in its last five outings. But the Huskies have given up 82.2 ppg in that stretch, more than 12 points higher than their season average.

Stanford topped Washington State 65-54 Thursday night as a 4½-point home chalk to end a three-game slide (1-2 ATS). The Cardinal have averaged 73.8 ppg on the year, but they’ve failed to get out of the 60s in their last four outings, averaging 64.8 ppg while allowing 74.5 – mostly due to last Saturday’s 97-63 blowout loss at UCLA. In the past five games, Stanford is shooting 46.0 percent from the floor (38.0 from 3-point range), but their opponents are hitting at a 53.8 percent clip, including a whopping 51.7 percent from long distance.

Stanford is 2-1 SU and ATS in the last three meetings in this rivalry, losing 84-83 last month in Seattle but getting the cash as a 6½-point road ‘dog. The underdog is 11-4 ATS in the last 15 clashes, and the road team is on a 4-1 ATS run.

The Huskies are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against winning teams, but they still carry positive pointspread trends of 5-2 on the road, 5-0 after a SU loss, 6-1 after a non-cover and 7-3 on the highway against teams with a winning home record. The Cardinal are on nothing but positive ATS streaks, including 14-4 overall, 6-1 against winning teams, 4-1 at home, 7-2 in the Pac-10, 9-3 after a SU win, 12-4 after a spread-cover and 11-4 on Sunday.

The over for Washington is on tears of 9-0 overall, 5-0 on the road, 16-5 in the Pac-10 and 7-3 after a SU loss, and the over is 15-6 in Stanford’s last 21 Pac-10 tilts. However, the under for the Cardinal is on runs of 4-1 at home, 6-2 on Sunday and 9-3 against winning teams. Finally, the total has stayed low in nine of the last 12 meetings in this rivalry, though the last two have topped the posted price, including last month’s meeting in Seattle.

ATS ADVANTAGE: STANFORD

Tips and Trends

#13 Purdue at #21 Illinois


Purdue: The Boilermakers saw their six-game winning streak come to an end on Tuesday at Ohio State and will try to get back on track against the Illini. Purdue lost in overtime to the Buckeyes 80-72 and also fell in OT to Illinois in the first meeting earlier this season, 71-67. The Boilermakers could be without star Robbie Hummel, who is dealing with a hairline fracture in his back and missed the team's last game.

Purdue is 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The OVER is 5-1 in Purdue's last 6 games overall.

Key Injuries - F Robbie Hummel (back) is questionable.

PROJECTED SCORE: 58

Illinois (-2, O/U 121.5): The Illini have won nine straight home games, limiting opponents to an average of 52 points on 38.6 percent shooting. However, they have also struggled with their offense lately, averaging 49.3 points in losing two of their last three games. Illinois made only 32.8 percent of its shots in a 63-50 loss at Wisconsin on Thursday. “We missed a lot of open shots,” Illinois head coach Bruce Weber said. “It’s been like that for a while.”

Illinois is 0-3-1 ATS in its last 4 games overall.
The UNDER is 6-1 in Illinois' last 7 games overall.

Key Injuries - NONE

PROJECTED SCORE: 63 (Side Play of the Day)
