Tulane has played schedule #342 so far.

Games to Watch
By David Schwab

Cleveland State vs. Valparaiso

Cleveland State will wrap-up its non-conference schedule this Wednesday night against Kent State before beginning play in the Horizon Conference against the Crusaders. The Vikings have lost three of their last five games to fall to 8-5 SU. They are 0-3 ATS in their last three games with a posted line and 4-4 ATS overall. The team has struggled under the boards with just 30.9 rebounds a game.

Valparaiso opens its play in the Horizon this Wednesday against 9-3 Loyola in what should be a good early test. The Crusaders finished 10-4 SU in non-conference play including victories over Purdue and Murray State in their last two games. They are 6-5 ATS and the total has stayed UNDER in all three games with a posted line. Ryan Broekhoff is the team's leading scorer with 16.7 points a game.

College Basketball: Streaks, Tips, Notes 

Oklahoma State at Kansas State

The Oklahoma Cowboys (10-2, 7-3-1 ATS) and Kansas State Wildcats (11-2, 3-6 ATS) collide in a BIG 12 opener for both teams. Cowboys recently upset in Stillwater by Gonzaga face a tough challenge. Cowboys do not travel well, they've lost their only true road game this season and head onto Fred Bramlage Coliseum hardwood in Manhattan, Kansas on a 1-8 (4-5 ATS) road skid including a loss/non-cover in this venue last season. Consider K-State as Wildcats are 3-5 SU/ATS in conference home openers, Cowboys are 0-6 (1-5 ATS) in their first road game vs the Big 12.

Georgetown at Marquette

The Georgetown Hoyas are in Milwaukee Saturday to take on Marquette, owners of a 17-game home winning streak. Tough spot for Hoyas on a 2-5 ATS road road skid vs conference opponents. Golden Eagles are outscoring teams by a 14.2 margin at home posting a perfect 8-0 mark this season. Golden Eagles ridding a 12-4-1 ATS stretch within the conference have cashed six of nine tickets running the hardwood vs Hoyas including 4-of-5 at the Bradley Center.

Memphis vs. Tennessee Point Spread, Las Vegas Betting Line and Picks
By The Linemakers

The Memphis Tigers (9-3) and Tennessee Volunteers (8-3) meet Friday night at Thompson-Boling Arena (8:00 p.m. ET, ESPN2). Here is point spread information and analysis from The Linemakers on Sporting News.

Line: Tennessee -2, Total: 128.5

Series trends:

* Under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings.

* Tigers are 2-7 ATS in the last nine meetings.

* Underdog is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

Team trends:

* Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

* Tigers are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Friday games.

* Tigers are 16-34-1 ATS in their last 51 non-conference games.

* Tigers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

* Tigers are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games following a SU win.

* Volunteers are 8-1 ATS in their last nine games following an ATS loss.

* Volunteers are 10-2-1 ATS in their last 13 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

* Volunteers are 4-1 ATS in their last five vs. Conference USA.

* Volunteers are 14-5-1 ATS in their last 20 home games.

* Volunteers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven non-conference games.

* Volunteers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall.

* Over is 4-0-1 in Tigers' last five overall.

* Over is 5-0 in Tigers' last five road games.

* Over is 4-0 in Tigers' last four road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

* Under is 4-1 in Volunteers' last five overall.

* Under is 8-2-1 in Volunteers' last 11 non-conference games.

The Linemakers take: Both teams are playing well coming into this rivalry game. Memphis has won seven of its past eight games and Tennessee has won four straight. This is the first true road game for Memphis, and the Tigerss may be without forward Tarik Black, who missed the last two games. This game figures to be a tough, defensive battle and favors the Vols on their home floor.
