College Basketball Thursday Preview – Lot of Home Underdogs

70-62-2 on NCAAB last season and went up 8.95 units

20-21-1 this season down 2.66 units

61 college basketball games tonight and 25 of them feature home underdogs. Lot of spots to take advantage of. Here are my favorites:

Old Dominion/Murray State Parlay at +115 for 3 units. Going against two home dogs here. ODU has two great guards in B.J. Stith and Ahmad Carver. Texas San Antonio has lost two games in a row. Old Dominion has won 6 in a row. A win would clinch first place in C-USA, giving ODU its first regular-season league title since 2010. The Monarchs gave up a 17-point lead in the final 4 minutes of the game in a loss to UTSA earlier this season. They won’t let that happen again.

If you haven’t seen Ja Morant play this season. He is super-athletic. I like Ja because he has a personality unlike a lot of college basketball players. I don’t think it is the players fault a lot of the time… growing up in an age where everything you do wrong is on the internet, sometimes it is better to be vanilla until you get paid. Anyway, there is a reason he is going to be a top-5 pick in the upcoming NBA draft. Morant is putting up 24.4 points, 10.2 assists, and 5.3 rebounds a game. Murray State has won 7 in a row. They are 14-2 in conference. Morehead State is 7-9 in conference play. Morehead State has not beat a team the caliber of Murray State in a while and they won’t tonight.

UAB +1 for 2 units.

Towson +2.5 for 2 units. Two home dogs here. William & Mary have won 3 in a row. Now the Tribe travel to Towson. 2 of those 3 William and Mary wins were against bottom of the CAA teams (Elon and UNCW). Towson has played well at home this season. Value here. Plus, the ESPN matchup predictor says Towson is the favorite and it has never been wrong. UAB just beat Western Kentucky by 8 two games ago. Now they are home and an underdog? I’ll bite.

Gonzaga -22 for 2 units. Pacific can’t score. That is all.

Shakhtar Soligorsk -3 at -130 for 4 units. Belarus Hockey today. Soligorsk have won their last 6 over Belarus U20 by 3 or more. More of the same today. That is all.
