College Basketball Betting Trends

Lehigh 

The Mountain Hawks are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. Lehigh is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 Saturday games.

Auburn

The Tigers are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games. Auburn is 8-0 ATS in its last eight home games versus a team with a losing road record.

Prediction:

The Tigers have played a reasonable but not overly difficult schedule and thrived, but its last two wins haven't exactly been overwhelming. The Mountain Hawks might be their weakest opponent to date, but the spread is gigantic and Lehigh is battle-tested with an 11-point loss at a solid St. Mary's squad. I'm taking the points here as Auburn has bigger fish to fry and doesn't need to be totally dominant here to walk away with a straight up win.
