College Basketball Betting Trends
The Wildcats are 1-7 ATS as an underdog this season. Davidson is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
The favorite is 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings. St. Bonaventure is 6-0 ATS after allowing 60 or less points in the previous game this season.
The numbers show that St. Bonaventure has had a lot of luck go its way this season, while Davidson has been one of the unluckiest teams in the nations. Those things tend to even out over time, but I'm not sure that the Wildcats are not the better team in this matchup. Home court will certainly help the Bonnies, but Davidson has an excellent offensive attack and is coming off a fantastic perimeter shooting performance. I'm all in on the visitors here.
