College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bison are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games. Lipscomb is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games overall.
The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last five Sunday games. Auburn is 0-4 ATS in its last four games overall.
The Tigers have fared well against a lot of top 100 programs, but they have not always looked dominant in doing so. The Bisons have been up and down this season, but have occasionally put it all together and compiled solid performances. Auburn has more important conference games coming up and I'm not expecting its best performance today. Take the points with Lipscomb.
