NCAA FREE PICK: Take Xavier. According to latest college basketball trends, the Mountaineers' 11 losses have been by seven points or fewer, including six defeats by four points or less. Xavier is playing better than its record would indicate and is currently suffering some growing pains while dealing with five new starters. They're 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games, 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall and are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last six games versus the Conference USA. Meanwhile, the Tigers are 0-6 against the number in their last six games versus the Atlantic-10 and 16-35-1 ATS in their last 52 non-conference games. Given the Mountaineers' record and the fact that this is a non-conference matchup, this would appear to be the perfect spot to bet against the streaking Tigers and take the points with the underdog.
