Butler heads to Vanderbilt riding a six-game winning streak while the Commodores are coming off a loss in their last game at Middle Tennessee St.
Vanderbilt is 5-5 entering this big non-conference showdown with Butler and while that record may not seem very good, the fact of the matter is that the Commodores have played a very aggressive schedule thus far and it certainly isn’t getting any easier here. Still, Vanderbilt possesses one of the best home court advantages in college basketball and anytime it is getting points here, it is worth a look. Vanderbilt has prided itself on defense this season as opponents have averaged less than 60 ppg on 41.2 percent shooting including 30.9 percent from long range. Stingy defense aided Vanderbilt in an overtime victory at Xavier, one of just two teams Butler has lost to this year. Butler owns one of the biggest wins in college basketball this season when it knocked off then top ranked Indiana in overtime. The Bulldogs came back and defeated Evansville after that to avoid a letdown but that came a week later as does this contest. Overall Butler has won six straight games and is once again a publicly favored team so the lines have to be adjusted which is the case here. Taking nothing away from what the Bulldogs have done but they are in a tough spot in a tough environment against a team that everyone is down on. The Commodores are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against team with a winning percentage above .600 while going 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a loss. Play (586) Vanderbilt Commodores

The Commodores are showing some solid value over Oregon State in the Ticket City Legends Classic on Monday. Vanderbilt has put together a couple of solid wins after their upset loss against Cleveland State, and will be looking to make a statement with a big win over undefeated Oregon State. The Beavers just upset Texas 100-95 on Saturday. While that was an impressive performance, I think that game really took a lot out of Oregon State emotionally and physically. Look for the Commodores to jump out to an early lead and run away with this thing late.
Vanderbilt is 13-5 ATS in their last 18 non-conference games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game, and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite of 7.0-12.5. BET THE COMMODORES -7!

Georgia vs. Vanderbilt

Georgia head coach Mark Richt has came out and said how the Bulldogs are going to commit more to the running game behind star freshman running back Isaiah Crowell. Vanderbilt has just got done going up against the great rushing attacks of South Carolina and Alabama, and it is going to be hard for them to get up for another physical game. Vanderbilt allowed 284 rushing yards in those two games. I actually think by committing to the run, it is going to open up Georgia’s offense for more big plays in the passing game. On the other side of the ball, Georgia has a very underrated defense. The Bulldogs haven’t allowed more than 13 points in three straight games, and have held each of those teams to less than 56 yards on the ground. Vanderbilt’s offense figures to make things even easier on the Georgia defense. The Commodores have the 116th ranked offense, averaging just 244.4 total yards a game. Georgia is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite of 10.5 or greater, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite, and 15-5 ATS in road games after allowing 14 points or less in 2 straight games since 1992.
