CCons College Basketball Pick 2/25

YTD 4-1 Indiana State +9.5 At first glance Indiana St is nothing more then a .500 team sitting at 14-14 overall, facing a nationally ranked 25-3 Wichita St state team. So a 9.5 spread for the visiting Shockers looks like a good bet but if we dig a little deeper I see a strong case for Indiana State tonight. Indiana St has won four of their last five at home with their last loss being to Northern Iowa by 10 points. This is...

College Basketball Value Betting Week of 2/23

Now that we are in the final weeks of the college basketball season, there is solid value betting against public perception. Last week I gave out three teams to buy and three teams to sell. The three teams I suggested to sell (Arizona, Kansas, and Oklahoma) went a combined 1-5 ATS for the week. Like I advised the lines on these teams would be inflated giving us value betting against them. The teams that I gave a buy rating...

CCon College Basketball Pick 2/22

YTD 4-0 Illinois +2.5 Illinois is coming off a 19 point loss to Wisconsin but is back at home with a week to prepare for its showdown with Michigan State. On the flip side Michigan State is coming into this game winning 3 in a row. With their latest victory being a 13 point defeat of the Wolverines in Michigan. The bandwagon is filling up for Michigan State who underachieved for most of the season. After their 3 latest wins...

CCons NCAA College Basketball Pick

YTD 3-0 Xavier -5 At first look it looks like -5 is a lot of points to give a Butler team that plays almost all their games down to the wire. Especially since their previous meeting at home with Xavier ended with Butler beating the Musketeers 88-76. Butler comes into this game ranked #19 in the country. Even after a narrow loss to division leader Villanova by 3, they came back and beat a last place Creighton team by 2. On...

C-CON – College Basketball Plays 2/17

YTD 2-0 Texas +6.5 Texas is coming off 3 straight wins against weaker opponents in Texas Tech, TCU and Kansas St but have struggled against stronger competition lately. While the Sooners had dominated the division before a slip up loss to K-State. This is a decent Oklahoma team but I believe them to be overvalued here covering 4 of their last 5 games. The line for this game opened at Sooners -6 and has been bet up to 6.5 and...

College Basketball Value Betting Week of 2/17/15

Down the stretch of the college basketball season is one the best times to find value betting against public perception. Public perception is engrained in bettors, which creates opportunity for those who know how to find it. Just like the stock market, the goal is to buy low and sell high. So here are some teams I’m buying and selling this week 2/17/15:   Sell #7 Arizona Wildcats - They have covered 8 of their...

C-CON Georgia Tech -2.5

YTD 1-0 On the Yellowjackets tonight -2.5. Its a tough bet to put in I know, with Georgia Tech struggling of late losing four out of their last five. Meanwhile Clemson is coming off a big 21 point win over Virginia Tech, but you can consider this a look ahead game for Clemson with Duke on the horizon and playing a sub par Georgia Tech team on two days rest. Line opened at GT -2.5 which seems wrong since Clemson is a good...

The Saturday Edge Pick: Army vs Navy

The Middies Navy comes into this game 6-5. Less than a stellar season by their standards. With 15 starters back and coming off a 9-4 season bigger things were expected in 2014. It simply didn’t happen. Much of it had to do with a defense that hasn’t played as well as they did last season. And also mistakes have plagued this team, which is very uncharacteristic for Navy. They are -2 in turnover margin compared to...

Jimmyshivers ACC Title Game Selection

Last week we concluded a very successful regular season with another winning week that brought our seasonal record to 25-12.  The key to this run was being extremely selective in our play selection (I took several weeks off where my leans were not very strong) and to try to find teams primed to go on either a positive or negative run (Thanks to Florida State for consistently struggling!).  There are still a handful of ACC...
