Basketball Sports Betting Odds and Matchups: February 26
The college basketball season has had its ups and downs. There are really no dominant teams, a lot of very good ones and many solid squads. There are so many betting opportunities out there including tonight with some very good conference games and one intriguing non-conference matchup. There's also a big NBA schedule on tap tonight.
Let's get rolling!
Indiana Hoosiers (24-3 SU, 15-10 ATS) at Minnesota Golden Gophers (18-9 SU, 13-11-1 ATS)
Last game (1/12/13) INDIANA (-8) over Minnesota, 88-81. Indiana is the number one team in the nation. How long will that last? The Hoosiers have won four straight and appear to have things going in the right direction. They beat Michigan State on the road last Tuesday, 72-68 on the road as a 1-point betting dog. Minnesota has lost four of the last five and haven't covered a game since Jan. 29. They last played on Wednesday, when they were thumped at Ohio State, 71-45 getting 5.5. The dog is 16-5 ATS last 21 in series. College Basketball Lines: Indiana is a 6-point betting odds favorite. Total: 139.
Memphis Tigers (24-3 SU, 11-13 ATS) at Xavier Muskateers (15-11 SU, 12-10-1 ATS)
Last game: (2/4/12) MEMPHIS (-5) over Xavier 72-68. This is a strange non-conference game in the middle of conference play. Memphis has won 18 straight games and is looking for a signature win. This probably won't be that win but every game helps when you're on the bubble. They crushed Southern Miss last Saturday, 89-73 as a 7.5-point betting odds favorite. Xavier is a young squad that looks like an NIT team. They fell at home to VCU last Saturday, 75-71, getting 5-points. Xavier is 1-5 ATS last 6 non-conference games. College Basketball Lines: Memphis is a 4.5-point betting odds favorite. Total: 133.
Golden State Warriors (33-23 SU, 29-26-1 ATS, 35-20-1 O/U) at Indiana (35-21 SU, 32-24 ATS, 23-32-1 O/U)
Last game: (12/1/12) GOLDEN STATE (-5) over Indiana, 103-92. The Warriors have won two straight after losing six straight. They beat Minnesota, 100-99 on the road, giving 2 points last Sunday. Indiana is playing great basketball right now. They have won four straight games and is 23-5 SU at home. The Pacers are coming off a 90-72 road win over Detroit, giving 5.5 points on Saturday. Golden State is 0-6 ATS last 6 road games. Pro Hoops Odds: Indiana is an 8-point betting odds favorite. Total: 196.5.
