College Basketball: Streaks, Tips, Notes 

Virginia at Pittsburgh

The Panthers (18-3, 7-10-1 ATS) not looking sharp in a loss to Duke on Monday netting just 65 points have another tough one against the Cavaliers (16-5, 11-6 ATS) with it's top-ranked defense (56.0). Panthers may be a smart 14-1 SU at home dating back to last season but Panthers cashing on Petersen Events Center hardwood has been a challenge as they're just 3-7 ATS in lined home games this season, 7-15 last twenty-one in front of the home crowd. Consider Cavaliers a money grabbing 8-0 ATS the past eight games, 6-1 ATS last seven on the road holding opponents under the 70 point mark.
Michigan at Indiana

Knocking off Purdue Thursday the Michigan Wolverines (16-4, 10-7-1 ATS) put a smart 10-0 (7-2-1 ATS) run on the line Sunday when they visit Indiana (13-8, 10-9-1 ATS). Wolverines are playing great basketball but betting on Michigan playing inside Assembly Hall has it's challenges. The Wolverines are 1-9 (2-8 ATS) last ten trips into Indiana. If that were not enough to give pause, Wolverines are just 3-7 ATS last ten away from Ann Arbor, 3-6 ATS L9 away vs Big-Ten opponents

College Basketball Cheet Sheet

South Florida Bulls at Cincinnati Bearcats (-14.5)

The Bulls are among the worst 3-point shooting teams in the nation as they shoot 26.2 percent as a group with only injured point guard Anthony Collins (38.9 percent) making more than a third of his attempts. Leading scorer Victor Rudd (14.7 points) has been particularly awful from behind the arc of late, knocking down just two of his 17 attempts over the last five games. If South Florida is going to have any shot to win this game, Heath needs more production out of Corey Allen Jr., who scored 18 points against SMU to bounce back from four straight poor outings, including a scoreless effort in the first matchup with the Bearcats.

Sean Kilpatrick, a 6-4 guard, has scored in double figures in 21 of the Bearcats' 22 games and has made multiple 3-pointers in each of the last five contests. Rubles is a stark contrast to Kilpatrick, not attempting a 3-pointer all season but rather doing his damage in the paint to the tune of 7.4 points and 6.4 boards. Jackson, who has battled through an ankle injury this week, hopes to duplicate his all-around effort against Louisville - 11 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks.


* Bulls are 7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings in Cincinnati.
* Bearcats are 8-1 ATS in their last nine home games.
* Under is 39-13-1 in Bulls last 53 games following a ATS win.
* Under is 42-12 in Bearcats last 54 overall.

Virginia Cavaliers at Pittsburgh Panthers (-4)

The Cavaliers don’t have a player averaging 12 points or better but sophomore guard Malcolm Brogdon has surpassed his current team-leading scorer average (11.6) in the last seven games and has reached double figures in a season-high eight straight overall. Brogdon hasn’t just been scoring lately either, producing a season-best five steals while matching his highs of seven rebounds and six assists in Tuesday’s 15-point win against Notre Dame. Brogdon is also a combined 6-for-9 from 3-point range in the last two games.

Malcolm Brogdon will likely be matched against the Panthers’ best player, 6-5 small forward Lamar Patterson, unless Pittsburgh chooses to use a bigger body with 6-8 forward Akil Mitchell. Patterson has reached double figures in scoring in 19 consecutive games and is averaging a team-high 17.7 points, which ranks fourth in the conference. Talib Zanna had been a quality second option for the Panthers, reaching double figures in all eight conference games.


* Cavaliers are 8-0 ATS in their last eight games overall.
* Panthers are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 vs. Atlantic Coast.
* Under is 19-9 in Cavaliers last 28 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
* Over is 16-5 in Panthers last 21 overall.

Michigan Wolverines at Indiana Hoosiers (+2)

The Wolverines have not lost since Dec. 14 - a two-point heartbreaker against No. 1 Arizona - but coach John Beilein still was not thrilled after Thursday's 75-66 win over Purdue. "The one thing I've learned first as a coach is that the only thing that can be really consistent is your defense, and it's not, and we're working on it," Beilein told reporters. "But if (the offensive consistency) keeps happening, I'll be happy as hell."

Hoosiers coach Tom Crean was not thrilled with freshman Noah Vonleh, who had as many turnovers (five) as shots attempted against Nebraska. “He had a tough night,” Crean told reporters after Thursday's 60-55 defeat. “He was out there, he worked hard. He wasn’t as emphatic and decisive with the ball as he needed to be. He got the ball, but it was one of those nights. He’s 18.” Vonleh is averaging 11.8 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks on the season, although he has just 11 combined points over the last two games.


* Over is 6-0 in the last six meetings in Indiana.
* Wolverines are 5-16-1 ATS in the last 22 meetings.
* Hoosiers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games.
* Wolverines are 4-1 ATS in their last five vs. Big Ten.
