Prediction: Middle Tennessee State
An excellent trip out West for Middle Tennessee State, an athletic team that has started 2-0 allowing 61 ppg. They come off a 58-51 win over Loyola as a +5 dog, allowing 33% shooting. The Blue Raiders are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record. That same Loyola team upset UCLA last week, 69-58, as the Bruins shot 40% and didn’t look comfortable in their “new” home. They don’t have home court this season, playing in the LA Sports Arena. The value is with the talented, and unbeaten, visitors. Play Middle Tennessee State. -Jim Feist
Prediction: Cal Santa Barbara -6
Santa Clara is 1-8 ATS last 3 years in November. Broncos are 4-9-2 ATS in their last 15 Tuesday games. Broncos are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 vs. Big West. Broncos are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog of 7.0-12.5. Broncos are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a SU win of more than 20 points. Gauchos are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. Gauchos are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. West Coast. We’ll recommend a small play on Cal Santa Barbara tonight! Thanks and good luck, Rocky.
Prediction: Duke -6.5
Michigan State played North Carolina to a 55-67 final, but they never really had a chance of winning that game. The Spartans shot just 30.6% from the field. They got most of their points on the offensive boards, and area where Duke will be much more competitive. The Blue Devils got a wake up call from Belmont in their opener, as they held on for a 77-76 win at home. Duke won’t be looking past the Spartans tonight, especially with this game being played at Madison Square Garden. Michigan State’s defense will keep them in the game early, but their inconsistencies on offense will allow Duke to run away with this game late and cover the spread. Duke is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite of 0.5-6.5 and 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 games after scoring more than 90 points in their previous game, while the Spartans are just 1-6 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games. BET THE BLUE DEVILS -6.5! -Steve Janus. Get more college basketball predictions from our sports handicappers each day at Touthouse.com
