Games to Watch
By David Schwab

Richmond vs. No. 9 Kansas
   
The Spiders are off to a strong 9-2 SU start but they are just 2-6 ATS. They ran their current winning streak to five games with a 76-57 rout of Stetson last Saturday in a game with no posted line. Richmond has had little problem putting the ball in the hoop this season with an average of 73.5 points a game but it has struggled under the boards with just 31.8 rebounds.

Kansas should continue to move up in the polls after pasting Belmont this past Saturday 89-60 as a 12-point home favorite. It was the Jayhawks seventh-straight win and they are now 8-1 SU and 4-5 ATS. The total has gone OVER in four of six games with a posted line. Ben McLemore, Jeff Withey and Travis Releford are all averaging better than 13 points while combining for 16.6 rebounds a game.

There are four lined college basketball games involving top 25 teams on Tuesday’s schedule. Here’s a look at trends and odds for those games, with leans from The Linemakers on Sporting News for a few of them. The point spreads below are from the LVH SuperBook as of about 10:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday. Visit our live odds board for updated college basketball lines.

Winthrop at No. 7 Ohio State - 7:00 p.m. ET

Line:
Ohio State -29, Total: 130

Trends:

• Eagles are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall.

• Eagles are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games.

• Eagles are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games.

• Buckeyes are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games.

• Buckeyes are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

• Over is 15-5-1 in Buckeyes’ last 21 home games.

• Over is 19-7-2 in Buckeyes’ last 28 overall.

Richmond at No. 9 Kansas - 7:00 p.m. ET

Line:
Kansas -14, Total: 134

Trends:

• Spiders are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games.

• Spiders are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games.

• Spiders are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

• Over is 5-2 in Jayhawks’ last 7 Tuesday games.

• Under is 20-9 in Jayhawks’ last 29 non-conference games.

• Jayhawks are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 vs. Atlantic 10.

The Linemakers’ take: Richmond can score (73.5 point per game) and has solid guards, but the Spiders lost at Minnesota by 15 and at Ohio by 25. The Jayhawks’ size will give them problems. They have no answer for 7-foot senior center Jeff Withey. Kansas loves to pour it on when it can. Look for the Spiders to stay close for a while, but the Jayhawks to pull away late.

No. 20 Michigan State at Bowling Green - 7:00 p.m. ET

Line:
Michigan St -12, Total: 123

Trends:

• Spartans are 16-34-2 ATS in their last 52 Tuesday games.

• Spartans are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games.

• Spartans are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

• Falcons are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games.

• Falcons are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

• Under is 4-1 in Spartans’ last 5 road games.

• Under is 6-2 in Spartans’ last 8 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

Stanford at No. 25 North Carolina State - 9:00 p.m. ET

Line:
N.C. State -7, Total: 143

Trends:

• Cardinal are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games following three or more consecutive home games.

• Cardinal are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win.

• Cardinal are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.

• Cardinal are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

• Wolfpack are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games overall.

• Wolfpack are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Pacific-12.

• Wolfpack are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 non-conference games.

• Under is 4-1 in Cardinal’s last 5 road games.

• Over is 7-3 in Cardinal’s last 10 overall.

• Over is 7-3 in Cardinal’s last 10 non-conference games.

The Linemakers’ take: Stanford comes in at 7-3, all their losses coming against quality opponents (Belmont by 12, Missouri by eight and Minnesota by three). N.C. State was picked No. 4 in the country in preseason polls and has underachieved so far, but they are tremendously talented and appear to be starting to jell. This is a tough spot for the Cardinal.
