Three NCAA Totals to Bet Sunday
Handicapping the college basketball slate on Sunday? Here are three totals I like for today, highlighted by the big one between Michigan State and Wisconsin.
Michigan State at Wisconsin, 1:00 p.m. ET, CBS
According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the over/under for this clash between Big Ten rivals is sitting at 132.5, down from the opening number of 134.5. The under has cashed in four straight MSU games, is 4-1 in the Spartans’ last five road games, and is 4-0 in Sparty’s last four games coming off a win. On the other side, the under has hit in six of the Badgers’ last eight home games and is 4-1-1 in their last six home games when facing an opponent with a winning record.
College Basketball Prediction: Under 132.5
Tulsa at Cincinnati, 12:00 p.m. ET, CBSSN
Despite 60% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks listed on the over, I like the under in this early Sunday matchup as well. The under is 5-2 in the Bearcats’ last seven games coming off a win and is 11-5 in their last 16 games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600. The under is also 19-8-1 in Cincinnati’s last 29 games played on Sunday, is 4-1 in the Bearcats’ last 26 games following a win of more than 20 points, and has cashed in seven of Tulsa’s last 10 games coming off an ATS win.
College Basketball Prediction: Under 133.5
Florida State at N.C. State, 6:00 p.m. ET, ESPNU
After hitting the board at 164.5, the total for this game is down to 164. Despite the line movement favoring the under, I think this a good spot to lay money on the over. In the last four meetings between these two teams when the Wolfpack are the host, the over is 4-0. In the last five meetings between these two teams overall, the over is 4-1. The over is also 8-3 in the Seminoles last 11 games, has cashed in five of Florida State’s last seven road games, and is 28-11 in NC State’s last 39 home contests.
College Basketball Prediction: Over 164
