NCAAB Lines: Tide, Terps in Puerto Rico
Maryland will face Alabama in college basketball betting action on Thursday in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off tournament in San Juan, with the ranked Crimson Tide expected to favored on the lines at Bovada.
This will be the first real test for Alabama this season, as they roared past Oakland and North Florida in their first two victories. The Crimson Tide are 6-1 SU in their past seven games and they should see the lion’s share of action on the college hoops betting lines in this matchup.
Later on it’s the Texas A&M Aggies taking on the Mississippi State Bulldogs in NCAAB betting action at Madison Square Garden. The Aggies are currently ranked No. 19 and will be a favorite up against the Bulldogs at Bovada.
Mississippi State is 5-2 SU in the past seven games, but the Aggies provide a big challenge. Don’t be surprised to see some heavy backers for Texas A&M on the college hoops betting lines.
Totals bettors should note that six of the past eight games involving Mississippi State have made winners of OVER bettors.
The No. 15 Arizona Wildcats also tip off against the St. John’s Red Storm at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night.
These teams have no history with each other, and with St. John’s scoring seven points per game more than their opponents they should draw some interest on the college hoops betting lines at Bovada. St. John’s is also 11-3 in their past 14 games.
If Arizona and St. John’s score their average point totals per game in this matchup, the OVER bet should be where the safe money is placed.
Davidson will try to extend its two-game win streak, but they will have to pull off a major upset over the No. 6 Duke Blue Devils in Durham on Friday night.
Duke has won all eight head-to-head meetings and they will draw most of the attention on the college hoops betting lines for this home game. The line will be heavily in favor of Duke, but they have only covered the pointspread in one of three games so far this season.
