Thursday's CBB Over/Under Selections
Here are three totals to fill up your college basketball betting card for Thursday, including an over/under prediction for tonight's Stanford versus Arizona matchup.
Stanford vs. Arizona, 10:00 p.m. ET, FS1
According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Wildcats are a 10.5-point favorite to beat the Cardinal while the total sits at 150.5 points, down from the original number of 152. The under has cashed in seven of Stanford's last nine road games and is 4-1 in Arizona's last five games overall.
College Basketball Prediction: Stanford/Arizona under 150.5
Rutgers vs. Indiana, 8:55 p.m. ET, Big Ten Network
The under is 10-4 in Rutgers' last 14 games coming off a win, is 4-1 in its last five netural site games, and is 4-1 in its last five games when coming off an ATS victory. On the other side, the under is 7-1 in the Hoosiers' last eight games following a loss, is 14-4-1 in their last 19 conference games, and is 13-4-1 in their last 18 games overall. That said, this is a good spot to buck the trends. After hitting the board at 124, the total has actually climbed to 125.5 for this Big Ten Tournament matchup. With the Scarlet Knights playing on tired legs (they beat Minnesota on Wednesday night), I see this game inching over the total.
College Basketball Prediction: Rutgers/Indiana over 125.5
Virginia vs. Louisville, 8:00 p.m. ET, ACC Network
The Cavaliers are only 4-point favorites to beat the Cardinals tonight on the road and public bettors are lining up to pound Virginia at the betting window. As is the case with most Virginia games, I love the under in this spot as well. The under is 37-13-2 in the Cavaliers' last 52 road games, is 36-14-1 in their last 51 conference games, and is 51-22-1 in their last 74 games overall as they continue to play suffocating defense. On the other side, the under is 20-5-2 in the Cardinals' last 27 home games when facing a team with a road winning percentage of greater than .600.
College Basketball Prediction: Virginia/Louisville under 123
