College Basketball Betting Trends

Georgia 

The Bulldogs are 1-5 ATS in their last six road games. Georgia is 1-5 ATS in its last six games following an ATS win. 

Memphis

The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. Memphis is 15-6 ATS in its last 21 Saturday games.

Prediction:

The Tigers have benefited from a fairly weak schedule and lost their toughest challenge in an 82-74 semi-away loss at Oregon. But there is also something to be said for Memphis playing with a ton of confidence right now. Even so, the hosts will see a Georgia team today that is one of the better squads it has faced this season. The Bulldogs are battle-tested with two of their three losses to very good squads in Dayton and Michigan State. I see Georgia staying within the spread today and will be betting accordingly.
