Games to Watch
By David Schwab
VegasInsider.com

No. 20 UNLV Rebels vs. North Carolina Tar Heels

The Rebels are off to a strong start with a nine-game winning streak that has them at 11-1 SU on the year. Anthony Bennett has led the way with 19.5 points a game and the team, as a whole, is averaging 79.3 points while shooting 45.3 percent from the field. UNLV is 3-1 ATS in its last four games and 6-5 ATS overall.

North Carolina fell out of the rankings as a result of last week’s 85-67 loss to Texas as a 4½-point road favorite. The Tar Heels are now a disappointing 9-3 SU overall but still undefeated at home at 6-0 SU. They are 2-3 ATS in their last five games and 5-4 ATS overall. North Carolina remains one of the highest scoring teams in the country with an average of 84 points a game.

Kentucky Wildcats vs. No. 4 Louisville Cardinals

Kentucky continues to battle to turn its season around with four-straight victories including an 82-54 romp over Marshall as a 20-point home favorite its last time out. The Wildcats are now 8-3 SU on the year but a costly 3-5 ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in four of their last five games. Archie Goodwin leads the team in scoring (16.0) and assists (4.2) while Nerlens Noel is the leading rebounder with 9.1 a game.
   
The Cardinals only setback this season was a five-point loss to No.1 Duke on Nov.24 as one-point favorites. They are 11-1 SU and 7-5 ATS with the total going OVER in four of six games with a posted line. Louisville is averaging 78.1 points a game behind Russ Smith’s team-high 19.7 point average. As a team, it is shooting 45.5 percent from the floor.

No. 18 Butler Bulldogs vs. Vanderbilt Commodores

Butler continued its climb up the rankings with last Saturday’s 75-67 victory over Evansville as a 10 ½-point home favorite. This followed the Bulldogs stunning overtime upset of then-No.1 Indiana as 10½-point underdogs on Dec.15. They are now 9-2 SU on the season and 6-4 ATS. Butler is averaging 74.9 points a game but has scored 82 or more in four of its last eight games.

Coming off last Friday’s 56-52 loss to Middle Tennessee as 5 ½-point underdogs that snapped a three-game winning streak, the Commodores have sunk to 5-5 SU and 4-4 ATS this season. However, they have covered the spread in four of their last five games. Vanderbilt is averaging just 60.3 points a game while shooting 42.5 percent from the field.

NCAAB: Streaks, Trends, Notes
Sportspic.com 

UNLV at North Carolina

North Carolina losing most of its nucleus from last season’s Elite Eight team are a disappointing 9-3 (5-4 ATS) overall but still undefeated at home (6-0, 3-1 ATS). James Michael McAdoo (15.0) leads the way on a Tar Heels team that's one of the highest scoring teams in the country averaging 84.0 points on 45.5% shooting from the field. Meanwhile, Rebels off to a strong 11-1 (6-5 ATS) start will put a nine-game winning streak (5-3 ATS) on the line when they travel to North Carolina. As a team Rebels net 79.2 points while allowing the opposition 63.1 per/contest. Although Rebels stunned Tar Heels 90-80 as 8 point dogs in the Las Vegas Invitational last year a repeat performance in North Carolina will be a challenge. UNLV has cashed just one of it's last eleven line games on the road and the Heels are on a smart 39-1 (21-4 ATS) stretch in Chapel Hill.

Kentucky vs. Louisville

Cardinals taken down 61-69 by their in-state rival Wildcats in the Final Four last year will be out for a little payback. The Cardinals netting 78.1 PPG with an impressive defense (55.5 PPG) holding opponents to just 39.0% shooting including 28.0% from outside are rolling along at 11-1 (7-5 ATS) including 6-0 (3-3 ATS) on home court. The Wildcats losing their starting five from last years National Championship squad head into Louisville at 8-3 (3-5 ATS) scoring 78.5 per/game while allowing the opposition 61.1 per/contest. Cardinals lead by Russ Smith (19.7), Peyton Siva (11.4), Chane Behanan (10.8), Wayne Blackshear (10.0), Gorgui Dieng (8.2) all returning from last years team exact revenge against Cat's going through growing pains. Trends of interest - Cats are on an 8-17-1 ATS skid in non-conference games, 8-11-1 ATS slide away from Rupp Arena. Cardinals are on a 4-1 ATS streak overall, 8-5 ATS stretch at KFC Yum! Center.

Evansville at Creighton

12th-ranked Creighton Bluejays (11-1, 8-2 ATS) on a 5-0 (4-1 ATS) stretch since their single blemish against Boise State host Evansville Purple Aces (7-5, 6-3 ATS) in a clash of MVC rivals. The Bluejays should be feeling pretty good about their chances as they've won 4-of-5 in the series (2-3 ATS), 8-of-9 the past four seasons (5-4 ATS) and are ridding a smart 14-0 (8-6 ATS) streak hosting Purple Aces. No upset likely but Evansville will give Bluejays a run for the money. Purple Aces have been cash cows vs Missouri Valley opponents (21-8-1 ATS) and own a sparkling 14-1 ATS streak as underdogs. If that were not enough to give Evansville a second look the Purple Aces have cashed in 3 of the last 4 meetings and have a sharp 10-2 ATS record vs a team with a winning home record.

Saturday's Top 25 NCAAB Betting Notes
By Covers.com

Saturday has a full board of betting choices for college basketball fans. Check out our quick-hitting notes on all the Top 25 action:

Western Michigan Broncos at North Carolina State Wolfpack (-19, 144)

Coach Mark Gottfried has No. 25 North Carolina State clicking and his team will try to extend its win streak to six games – matching the longest in his tenure – when the Wolfpack host Western Michigan on Saturday. NC State began the season as the highest-ranked team in the Atlantic Coast Conference, but losses to Oklahoma State in Puerto Rico and a road setback against No.2 Michigan threatened its top-25 status. The Wolfpack have since run off five straight wins, including victories over Connecticut and Stanford, scoring at least 80 points in each of the last four. They will attempt to move to 7-0 at home this season against the Broncos, who have dropped three of their last five despite a 87-66 victory over Mount St. Mary’s last Saturday.

Santa Clara Broncos at Duke Blue Devils (-20, 147)

It has been a month since top-ranked Duke faced a serious challenge. Santa Clara hopes to end that trend Saturday when it puts a six-game win streak on the line against the unbeaten Blue Devils at Cameron Indoor Stadium. After a pair of five-point wins over powerhouses Louisville and Ohio State at the end of November, Duke has won four December games by an average of 31 points. The closest of those contests came the last time out, a 76-54 win over Elon on Dec. 20. That was the Blue Devils' 100th consecutive non-conference win at home. It also left them 11-0 for the ninth time under coach Mike Krzyzewski. The Broncos are coming off a 69-45 win over Wagner in the title game of the Cable Car Classic last Saturday.

UNLV Runnin' Rebels at North Carolina Tar Heels (-4.5, 160)

No. 17 UNLV, which has won nine straight games since losing at home to Oregon, 83-79, on Nov. 23, makes its first trip to the Dean Smith Center to face North Carolina, which has won four of its last five games. The Tar Heels lead the all-time series 3-1 but the Runnin' Rebels won the last meeting last year at the Orleans Arena in the championship game of the Las Vegas Invitational, 90-80. That was UNLV's first win over the nation's top-ranked team in 22 years and the first time a Mountain West school ever defeated a team ranked No. 1 in both polls. The previous four meetings between these teams were played on neutral courts, including North Carolina's 84-83 win over the Rebels in the 1977 Final Four in Atlanta.

Auburn Tigers at Illinois Fighting Illini (-12, 131)

No. 15 Illinois tries to rebound from its first loss when it plays Auburn at the United Center in Chicago on Saturday. First-year coach John Groce’s Fighting Illini fell 82-73 to Missouri in the “Braggin’ Rights” game in St. Louis last Saturday despite Brandon Paul’s 23 points. Illinois still leads the nation in 3-pointers per game (9.8) and shoots 37.3 percent from beyond the arc. The Tigers are coming off a 74-67 home loss to Winthrop last Saturday that snapped a three-game win streak. Auburn hit 3-of-23 from deep in the loss.

Kentucky Wildcats at Louisville Cardinals (-8, 135)


No. 23 Kentucky looks to make it five straight wins over archrival and No. 3 Louisville when the Wildcats visit the Cardinals on Saturday. The in-state foes met in last season’s Final Four, Kentucky winning 69-61 en route to the national championship. Louisville appears to be the stronger squad this season. The Cardinals have won six straight by an average of 25.5 points, their only loss this season coming by five points to top-ranked Duke. Kentucky, which has posted four straight blowout wins after consecutive losses to Notre Dame and Baylor, leads the all-time series with Louisville 30-14.

Air Force Falcons at Florida Gators (-19, 131)

After falling short in its last two trips outside the Sunshine State, one can understand why Florida is relishing some home cookin'. Although its last loss was technically a "neutral site" game, the 11th-ranked Gators will look to remain undefeated at home when they host Air Force on Saturday as part of the MetroPCS Orange Bowl Classic. Florida suffered a 67-61 setback to Kansas State last Saturday after shooting a dismal 5-for-19 from 3-point range - including a combined 2-for-12 effort from guards Mike Rosario, Kenny Boynton and Scottie Wilbekin. The Gators will look for a better showing when they face the Falcons, who posted their second straight victory with a 61-53 triumph over UC Riverside last Saturday.

Chicago State Cougars at Ohio State Buckeyes (-37, 141)

Ohio State will try to rebound from its second loss this season when the No. 10 Buckeyes host Chicago State on Saturday afternoon. Ohio State lost to No. 6 Kansas last weekend, 74-66, shooting 31 percent from the floor. The Buckeyes will likely continue to lean on 6-7 junior forward Deshaun Thomas, the Big Ten scoring leader at 20 points. He’s been the model of consistency, scoring at least 14 in every game, making a least two 3-pointers in all but one and shooting 85.7 percent from the free-throw line. The Cougars don’t have a go-to player on offense. Just one averages double figures in scoring and none have scored more than 20 points in a game this season. Jeremy Robinson leads Chicago State at 10.4 points, followed by Clarke Rosenberg (9.6), Matt Ross (9.4) and Quinton Pippen (9.1). Three others average between 7.2 and 7.9 points.

Central Michigan Chippewas at Michigan Wolverines (-29, 137)

After a nine-day break, second-ranked Michigan will return to action Saturday night against visiting Central Michigan in hopes of extending the second-best start in school history. At 12-0, the Wolverines are off to their best start since a school-record 16-0 beginning to the 1985-86 season, which also marked the last time the Wolverines went undefeated in non-conference play - something they can achieve with a win over the Chippewas. Central Michigan split a pair of games in the Sun Bowl Invitational last week in El Paso, falling to Nebraska (89-75) and beating Arkansas-Pine Bluff (62-45). The Wolverines have won 20 of 23 all-time meetings, though they later vacated one victory because of NCAA sanctions. Central Michigan won the most recent contest, 78-67 in Ann Arbor on Dec. 15, 2007.

Alcorn State Braves at Syracuse Orange (N/A)

A number of streaks – both impressive and embarrassing – figure to get extended on Saturday when No. 7 Syracuse hosts Alcorn State as part of the Gotham Classic. The Orange suffered their first loss of the season last Saturday against Temple at Madison Square Garden due in large part to poor foul shooting. However, Syracuse returns to the Carrier Dome for this contest, where it has won a school-record 31 straight overall and 41 in a row over non-conference opponents. Those two streaks – the former of which is the longest active streak in the country – should increase against the Braves, who have dropped 81 consecutive non-conference road games. Alcorn State, which has dropped eight straight by an average of 16.6 points, suffered its latest humiliating road loss in an 87-74 setback at Canisius on Thursday.

Butler Bulldogs at Vanderbilt Commodores (+4.5, 124)

No. 21 Butler, which followed its upset of then-No. 1 Indiana with a solid win over Evansville, goes for its seventh straight victory when it visits Vanderbilt on Saturday. The Bulldogs handled the Purple Aces 75-67 last Saturday behind 20 points each from senior center Andrew Smith and senior guard Rotnei Clarke. The rebuilding Commodores are coming off a 56-52 neutral-site loss to Middle Tennessee State in which they were outrebounded 34-25. Vandy ranks 305th nationally in scoring (60.3).

American U. Eagles at Kansas Jayhawks (N/A)

No. 6 Kansas returns to action for the first time since an impressive 74-66 road victory at then-No. 7 Ohio State on Dec. 22. The Jayhawks have won 28 straight games in Allen Fieldhouse, the second-longest winning streak in the nation behind Syracuse's 29 in a row. Kansas and American are playing for just the second time in men's basketball with the other matchup coming during the Jayhawks' 1988 NCAA National Championship season. The Jayhawks cruised to a 90-69 victory in that one at Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks have shot 50 percent or better from the field in each of their last five games and lead the Big 12 in field goal percentage (49.3).

Evansville Purple Aces at Creighton Bluejays (-15, 143)

Creighton opens its quest for its first Missouri Valley Conference regular-season title since 2008-09 when it hosts Evansville on Saturday. The Bluejays were the overwhelming favorites to capture the crown in the league's preseason poll, but now the team has to prove it on the court. Creighton comes into the game on a five-game winning streak, including a 17-point home win over Tulsa on Dec. 19 in its last game. The Purple Aces dropped their last game, but it was an eight-point defeat at Butler in which Evansville played well. The play in the early going of this one could be a little ragged, with both teams excited to start conference play and having gone at least seven days between contests.

College Basketball Point Spreads, Lines, Trends
By: The Linemakers 
Sportingnews.com

There are just four unbeaten schools in college basketball after Cincinnati’s 55-54 loss to New Mexico on Thursday. Two are in action Saturday: No. 1 Duke (11-0) is home against Santa Clara, while No. 2 Michigan (12-0) is hosting Central Michigan.

No. 3 Arizona (11-0) is off until Thursday, and unranked Wyoming (12-0) doesn't play until Wednesday.

A look at Santa Clara-Duke and three more of Saturday's biggest games:

Santa Clara (11-2 SU, 5-4 ATS) at No. 1 Duke (11-0 SU, 7-4 ATS), noon ET, ESPN2

Line:
Duke -18. Total: 149.5.

The Broncos are a few seconds away from also being undefeated. In each of their two losses, they allowed a late 3-pointer and then fell in overtime. Duke has played the nation’s second-toughest schedule, while Santa Clara has faced the 217th-toughest. The Broncos do rank 33rd in offensive efficiency, compared to Duke’s seventh.

Look for a big bounce-back from Santa Clara senior guard Kevin Foster (18.2 points), who scored a career-low two points on 0-for-8 shooting vs. Wagner in his most recent outing.

This year's Blue Devils have better chemistry than squad from last year, when Austin Rivers hogged the ball. All five starters average double figures in scoring, with Quinn Cook (6 assists per game) keeping everyone happy. The last time every Duke starter averaged in double figures was in 2003-04, when the Blue Devils went to the Final Four.

Trends:

Santa Clara is 5-1 ATS in its last six road games.

Santa Clara is 4-0 ATS in its last four road games vs. teams with a .600-plus home winning percentage.

Duke is 6-2 ATS in its last eight non-conference games.

Duke is 6-15 ATS in its last 21 home games.

Under is 8-3 in Duke’s last 11 home games.

Under is 4-1 in Santa Clara’s last five games overall.

No. 20 UNLV (11-1 SU, 6-5 ATS) at North Carolina (9-3 SU, 6-4 ATS), 2 p.m. ET, ESPN2

Line:
North Carolina -4. Total: 158.

The Tar Heels are ranked 50th in the RPI and their best win came against McNeese State. Each of their losses has come by double digits. They’re 6-0 at home, however, and will be highly motivated to avenge last season's stunning 90-80 loss to the Runnin’ Rebels when UNC was ranked No. 1.

UNLV forward Mike Moser, who had 16 points and 18 rebounds in that upset, won’t play as he continues to recover from a dislocated elbow. The Rebels have won nine straight thanks in large part to potential No. 1 NBA Draft pick Anthony Bennett (19.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 55.7 percent shooting).

UNC has won 62 consecutive non-conference games at the Smith Center dating to 2005.

Trends:

UNLV is 1-10 ATS in its last 11 road games.

UNLV is 4-10 ATS in its last 14 games vs. teams with .600-plus winning percentages.

UNC is 2-6 ATS in its last eight games vs. winning teams.

UNC is 8-24 ATS in its last 32 games after scoring 90-plus points in their previous game.

Under is 4-1 in UNLV’s last five road games.

Over is 4-0 in UNC’s last four home games.

Kentucky (8-3 SU, 3-5 ATS) at No. 4 Louisville (11-1 SU, 7-5 ATS), 4 p.m. ET, CBS

Line:
Louisville -8.5. Total: 134.5.

Rick Pitino is 0-4 against Kentucky since taking over at Louisville, including last season's Final Four matchup, but now he has the better squad, though not by much according to the Linemakers Power Ratings.

The Cardinals have won six straight by an average of 25.5 points, and their only loss was by five to top-ranked Duke. Guard Russ Smith (19.7 ppg) penetrates at will: he has taken 10 or more free throws in three of the last six games.

Kentucky lacks a true point guard, and Louisville should exploit that. The Cardinals have forced nine of 12 opponents into 20 or more turnovers.

Louisville also will welcome back center Gorgui Dieng, who suffered a broken wrist on Nov. 23.

Trends:

Kentucky is 7-17-1 ATS in its last 25 non-conference games.

Kentucky is 5-2 ATS in its last seven road games.

Louisville is 16-5 ATS in its last 21 games overall.

Louisville is 8-3 ATS in its last 11 home games.

Under is 17-6-3 in the Wildcats’ last 26 road games.

Under is 6-2 in the Cardinals’ last eight home games.

Xavier (7-4 SU, 2-5-1 ATS) at Tennessee (7-3 SU, 5-3 ATS), 6 p.m. ET, ESPNU

Line:
Tennessee -7. Total: 121.

Xavier has dropped its last two, including a shocking home loss to Wofford. Before last season’s three-game losing streak—a direct result of suspensions from their brawl with Cincinnati—the Musketeers hadn’t lost three straight since the 2004-05 season. Xavier has averaged 56.5 points over its last four games.

Tennessee allows 57.3 points per game, second-fewest in the SEC, but frequently struggles to score. The Vols made three first-half baskets in their most recent outing, a 66-52 win over Western Carolina. Tennessee gets to the foul line a lot—42 times against WCU—but hits just 68 percent. The Vols should have a big edge on the boards; they average 38.1 rebounds, six more than the Musketeers.

Trends:

Xavier is 6-2 ATS in its last eight games vs. the SEC.

Xavier is 4-1-1 ATS in its last six road games.

Tennessee is 14-4-1 ATS in its last 19 home games.

Tennessee is 5-1 ATS in its last six games overall.

Over is 8-2 in the Musketeers’ last 10 road games.

Under is 7-2-1 in the Volunteers’ last 10 non-conference games.
ATS trends

Home favorites have been the best betting propositions overall, at 446-400-15 ATS (52.7 percent) when a spread has been offered.

Appalachian State may only be 3-8 on the season, but it is 7-0 ATS, with six of the covers coming on the road.

UAB has been awful against the spread this season, covering only two of its nine games (1-6 road) offered, but it has gone OVER in six of seven games.

Cal State-Northridge is having a good run at 9-3, and it also has been covering regularly, especially at home where it is 4-0 ATS. Overall, it has covered eight of 10 games in which a line has been posted.

Connecticut is 9-2 SU but just 1-5-1 ATS.

Creighton is 11-1, and the Bluejays get the job done against the spread, too. They are 8-2 when a line has been offered, 3-0 on the road.

Drexel was such a good cover team last season, but that has changed this year. Not only are the Dragons 4-7 straight-up, but they have covered only two of their 11 games. They can be counted on to run, however; they have gone 7-1-1 to the OVER.

Illinois State and Illinois-Chicago are both 9-3, and that success has translated at the betting windows. The schools are 15-5 ATS combined.

Richmond has a fine 9-4 record, but bettors have gone 2-8 backing the Spiders against the spread.

Marshall is a respectable 7-6 but an awful 0-8-1 ATS.

Washington State is 8-4 overall and a very good 7-2 ATS.

OVER is the word: Boise State (6-0), Boston College (5-0), Old Dominion (6-0).

Down UNDER: UC Irvine (0-5), Miami, Fla. (1-7), Northern Illinois (1-8), Oklahoma State (1-8), Southern Miss (1-6).
