NCAAB News and Notes Tuesday 2/10

Super Tuesday
By Brian Edwards

There are 16 games on Tuesday’s college basketball board with a slew of teams facing crucial situations. One of those would be Kentucky, which is in dire need of a win when it hosts Florida. Providence is also in desperation mode when it travels to Tampa to take on USF.

Texas might be the squad most in need of a victory. The Longhorns, once thought to be a Final Four contender, have lost three in a row both straight up and against the spread. They will be in danger come Selection Sunday if Oklahoma St. goes into Austin and pulls a shocker.

Let’s take a closer look at a few of the televised contests.

**Michigan State at Michigan**

--Las Vegas Sports Consultants opened Michigan State (19-4 straight up, 11-8-1 against the spread) as a four-point favorite with a total of 133.

--Michigan (15-9 SU, 10-8-1 ATS) has lost six of its last eight games, but the Wolverines have covered the spread in back-to-back contests. They nearly pulled a shocker at top-ranked UConn on Saturday, leading 34-33 at intermission and 43-39 at one point early in the second half. However, the Huskies eventually captured a 69-61 triumph, although John Beilein’s team easily took the money as a 16 ½-point underdog. Stu Douglass scored a team-high 20 points, draining 6-of-8 shots from 3-point range, in the losing effort.

--Michigan St. has won four of its last five games both SU and ATS, including Saturday’s 75-47 spanking of Indiana as a 21-point home favorite. Chris Allen scored 16 points for the Spartans off the bench, while Draymond Green produced a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds.

--Michigan has been outstanding at home all year long. The Wolverines are 12-2 SU and 7-2 ATS in Ann Arbor. They have home win over the likes of Duke, Illinois and Penn St, which took a 71-51 shellacking at Michigan last week.

--Michigan is 3-5-1 ATS in nine games as an underdog this season. The Wolverines’ 81-73 victory as 9 ½-point underdogs is their lone spot as home ‘dogs.

--The ‘under’ is on a 7-1-1 roll for Michigan. The ‘under’ is 9-8-1 overall for the Wolverines, but the ‘over’ is 6-3 in their home assignments.

--These in-state rivals split a pair of meetings last year with the home team winning both games, but Michigan took the money in both encounters.

--Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Eastern on ESPN.

**Florida at Kentucky**

--LVSC opened Kentucky (16-7 SU, 10-7-1 ATS) as a four-point favorite with a total of 144. As of early this morning, most books had UK at four.

--Florida (19-4 SU, 6-9-1 ATS) leads the SEC East with a 6-2 record, but South Carolina is just one-half game back. In fact, if the Wildcats snap their three-game losing streak with a win tonight, they will be in a three-way tie with the Gators and Gamecocks for the division lead.

--Billy Donovan’s team bounced from a blowout loss at Tennessee by beating South Carolina 97-93 last Tuesday. UF got ahead of the number late in the second half, but USC’s Devan Downey hit a slew of contested 3-pointers to spark the ‘Cocks to the backdoor cover as 7 ½-point ‘dogs. The 190 combined points flew over the 151-point tally.

--Billy Gillispie’s squad hasn’t tasted a victory in 17 days. The trouble started in Oxford, where Ole Miss stunned UK despite playing without three starters that have gone down with season-ending injuries. Next, Downey went into Rupp Arena and lifted South Carolina to a one-point win on his game-winning jumper in the final seconds. Then last Tuesday, Mississippi St. won a 66-57 decision at Kentucky as a 10 1/2-point underdog.

--When you see Kentucky with an RPI ranking of 74 this week, you realize how vital a victory is against the Gators, who have an RPI of 30.

--UK owns an 11-4 SU record and a 5-5 ATS mark at home. The ‘Cats are 2-2 SU and 1-3 ATS in SEC home games.

--When these SEC rivals met in Gainesville last year, Florida became only the the second school (Notre Dame was the other) to ever beat Kentucky for seventh straight time. However, the ‘Cats ended that slide on Senior Day last year, collecting a 75-70 win as three-point home favorites. Perry Stevenson was the catalyst with 18 points, 10 rebounds and five blocked shots. Calathes scored 16 points and dished out six assists despite playing just 23 minutes due to foul trouble.

--The ‘under’ is 8-7 overall for UF.

--ESPN will have the telecast at 9:00 p.m. Eastern.

Re: NCAAB News and Notes Tuesday 2/10

(9) Michigan State (19-4, 11-8-1 ATS) at Michigan (15-9, 10-8-1 ATS)

Michigan takes on its second consecutive Top 10 opponent when it entertains Michigan State, which brings a perfect Big Ten road record into Chrisler Arena in Ann Arbor.

The Wolverines went to No. 1 Connecticut on Saturday and took a one-point lead into halftime but couldn’t finish the job, losing 69-61 while cashing easily as a 16½-point road favorite. Although it has covered the spread in back-to-back outings, Michigan is just 2-6 SU in its last eight, with both victories coming in Big Ten home games (68-59 over Northwestern and 71-51 over Penn State). The Wolverines have scored 61 points or fewer in all six losses during their 2-6 funk.

The Spartans are coming off near-identical blowout home wins over Minnesota (76-47) and Indiana (75-47), cashing in both contests to move to 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five. In the last two wins, Michigan State gave just 28 field goals in 94 attempts (29.8 percent), and they’ve held six of 11 conference foes to 58 points or less.

Michigan State sits alone atop the Big Ten standings at 9-2 (6-4-1 ATS), two games ahead of both Ohio State and Illinois. Most impressively, Tom Izzo’s squad is 5-0 (4-0-1 ATS) in Big Ten road games and it is 7-0 in true road contests this season (5-0-1 ATS in lined action). Michigan is 5-6 in conference (4-7 ATS), including 4-2 SU and ATS at home.

These rivals met just once last year, with Michigan State rolling to a 77-62 home win but coming up just short as a 15½-point favorite. The host has won the last five meetings (4-1 ATS) in this rivalry and is 8-2 (7-3 ATS) in the last 10.

In addition to the Spartans’ ATS hot streaks of 4-1 in Big Ten play and 5-0-1 on the road, they’re 5-0-1 ATS as a favorite of less than eight points this season and 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 games after a victory of more than 20 points. However, they’ve failed to cash in four consecutive Tuesday outings. Conversely, despite its 2-5 ATS slump in conference action, Michigan is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 at home and 10-4-1 ATS in its last 15 on Tuesday, but the Wolverines are 0-3-1 ATS as an underdog of less than eight points

Michigan State has topped the total four consecutive road games, but the under is 6-1 in its last seven on Tuesday and 12-5-1 in its last 18 following a victory of more than 20 points. Also, Michigan is on “under” stretches of 4-0 overall, 16-5-1 in Big Ten play, 4-1-1 on Tuesday and 9-3-1 after a SU defeat.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UNDER


(10) Marquette (20-3, 10-7-1 ATS) at (13) Villanova (19-4, 12-7 ATS)

Marquette will try to rebound from its first Big East loss of the season when it hits the road for the third consecutive game in a battle against red-hot Villanova at The Pavilion.

The Golden Eagles kicked off the conference season with a 79-72 home victory over then-No. 15 Villanova on New Year’s Day and eventually got to 8-0 in Big East play before Friday’s last-second 57-56 loss at South Florida as an 8½-point road favorite. That defeat snapped Marquette’s 12-game overall win streak (8-2-1 ATS) going back to the non-conference campaign. It also marked the first time all season the Eagles were held under 60 points and the first time in Big East play they they’d scored fewer than 71.

Villanova topped the century mark for the second time this season in Saturday’s 102-85 pounding of Syracuse, covering easily as a 6½-point home favorite. The Wildcats have won five straight games (all against the Big East) and they’re also on a 7-0 ATS tear (all in conference). During the five-game winning streak, Jay Wright’s club has averaged 80.8 ppg on 48 percent shooting while allowing 68.8 ppg on 36.5 percent shooting.

Marquette is tied with Louisville – both a half-game behind UConn – in the Big East race with a 9-1 SU mark (7-3 ATS), including 4-1 on the highway (3-2 ATS). Villanova is in fifth place at 7-3 SU and ATS, including 4-1 SU and ATS in their two home venues (The Pavilion on campus and the Wachovia Center in nearby Philadelphia).

Including last month’s seven-point win at home, Marquette has won three straight and four of five against Villanova since 2002, cashing in all five contests (four times as a favorite). In last year’s trip to The Pavilion, the Eagles rolled to an 85-75 victory as a 1½-point road chalk.

The Golden Eagles are on a bunch of ATS hot streaks, including 8-3 overall, 12-5 on the highway (5-1 last six), 15-6 in Big East action, 4-1-1 after a SU loss, 6-2-1 after a non-cover and 5-0 against winning teams. Meanwhile, in addition to its 7-0 ATS run (all in Big East action), Villanova is on pointspread upticks of 4-0 at home, 6-0 versus teams with a winning record and 9-3 as a favorite of less than 15 points.

Marquette is 4-1 SU and ATS against Top 25 teams and the Wildcats are 2-3 against ranked competition (3-2 ATS, including three straight spread-covers).

The over is on streaks of 5-2 for Villanova overall, 8-3 for Villanova against Big East rivals and 4-1 in this rivalry. However, the under is on stretches of 20-7 for the Wildcats at home, 5-2 for the Wildcats on Tuesday, 10-4 for the Wildcats after a SU win, 6-0 for the Wildcats after scoring 100 points or more in the previous game, 5-2 for Marquette on the road and 5-1 for Marquette on Tuesday.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NONE


(12) Clemson (19-3, 8-8-1 ATS) at Boston College (18-7, 11-9 ATS)

Two ACC rivals that had winning streaks snapped over the weekend will try to get back on track when Boston College hosts Clemson at the Conte Forum.

The Tigers took a three-game SU and ATS winning streak into Saturday’s home game against Florida State, including a stunning 27-point victory over fourth-ranked Duke on Wednesday. However, Clemson blew a 15-point lead with less than 10 minutes to play and fell to the Seminoles 65-61 as a nine-point home chalk. Since starting the season 16-0, the Tigers have split their last six games both SU and ATS, all against ACC competition.

After an ugly four-game SU and ATS losing skid that came on the heels of a shocking upset at then-No. 1 North Carolina, Boston College saved its season with a five-game winning streak (4-1 ATS). However, the Eagles’ run ended in Sunday’s 93-76 blowout loss at Wake Forest as an 11-point road underdog.

Clemson is one of four ACC teams with a 5-3 conference record (4-3-1 ATS), including 2-1 SU and ATS on the road. Boston College is 6-4 in the ACC (5-5 ATS), and after losing their first two conference home games (0-2 ATS) the Eagles have won two straight at Conte Forum (1-1 ATS).

This rivalry has belonged to the home team, which has won all six regular-season meetings going back to 2003 (3-1-2 ATS). Last year, Clemson rolled to a 78-56 victory as a 10½-point home chalk, then blitzed the Eagles out of the ACC tournament with an 82-48 romp as a nine-point favorite. The Tigers are 5-0-2 ATS all-time against B.C., and the favorite is 4-1-2 ATS.

Clemson’s pointspread trends include 4-1 on the road, 7-3-1 in ACC action and 7-1 on the highway against teams with a winning record. Boston College is 8-2-1 ATS in its last 11 on Tuesday, but 1-4 ATS in its last five as a host.

The last five meetings in this rivalry have stayed under the total, and the under is also on stretches of 7-2 for Clemson overall, 5-2 for Clemson in ACC play, 4-0 for Clemson against winning teams and 5-0 for the Eagles against squads with a winning record. However, the over is on runs of 5-0 for the Tigers on the road, 5-1-1 for Boston College overall, 21-7 for Boston College at home and 7-3-1 for Boston College on Tuesday.

ATS ADVANTAGE: CLEMSON

Re: NCAAB News and Notes Tuesday 2/10

Rivalry Week's must-see games
By MATT SEVERANCE

Marquette at Villanova (Tuesday, 7:30 p.m., ESPN2)

The Golden Eagles got caught in a major trap game at South Florida Friday night, losing their first Big East game. You can't blame Jerel McNeal, as he scored 22 points and has now scored at least 20 points in seven consecutive games. The senior guard is 20 points away from tying the school's career scoring mark set by George Thompson. McNeal leads an attack that is tops in the Big East in scoring.

Nova is rolling, having won five in a row (5-0 ATS as well) after stomping Syracuse Saturday. Wildcats senior forward Dante Cunningham matched a career high with 31 points in that one. Cunningham could have a big night against the Golden Eagles, who don't have much of a post presence. But Marquette has won the past two meetings in this series.
