St. Mary's: The best bet in college hoops
Which team has been the best bet in college basketball this season? It's actually been St. Mary's, which visits Santa Clara tonight at 11:00PM ET.
Oddsmakers haven't been able to adjust to the Gaels, who just keep winning at the betting window. Not only are they 9-1 straight up this season, but they're a perfect 8-0 against the spread in their eight lined games in 2015. In seven of those eight games they've been favored, which is even more impressive considering they've been favored by as low as 3 points to as high as 19.5 points.
On Monday night, the Gaels were a 17.5-point favorite versus San Francisco and blew out the Dons 74-52 after out-pacing SF 43-28 in the first half. With that victory, St. Mary's has now covered back-to-back games in which it was favored by double-digit points.
The Gaels will also be a double-digit favorite tonight when they visit Santa Clara at 11:00PM ET. According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBeat.eu, the Gaels are 10-point road favorites versus the Broncos, who are just 4-6 against the number in their 10 lined games this season.
