NCAAB: OddsShark ATS Top 25

Every Monday, numerous polls are released that give us an indication of who the best college basketball teams in the nation are. These polls are built through votes and opinions based on SU results, but what about a top 25 tailored toward bettors?

Every week, we compile a top 25 list with the bettor in mind. Nothing matters but cold hard facts with the numbers to back them up. For any team to be ranked, they must have at least 10 games with a listed spread. Teams are ranked based on cover percentage and in case of a tie, the number of covers will be used as a tiebreaker. 

Here’s the top 25 ATS teams in college basketball:

February 27, 2017

SMU Mustangs: 19-5 ATS
SMU is the best and hottest bet in the nation, as the Mustangs have gone 16-2 ATS in their past 18 games with a listed spread. Defense has been SMU’s calling card with the team holding opponents to just 59.0 ppg and 38.8 percent from the floor.
Harvard Crimson: 16-5 ATS
Since the start of Ivy League play, Harvard has just two ATS losses to its name, both as a fave against Columbia. Harvard’s offense has come around during a six-game winning streak, averaging 80.2 ppg in that span.
Saint Peter’s Peacocks: 19-6 ATS
Saint Peter’s may be the best road bet in the country, as the Peacocks have gone a staggering 13-1 ATS while traveling. The program failed to cover in its first road outing of the season but closed out the regular season covering in 13 straight away from home.
Gonzaga Bulldogs: 22-7 ATS
Since December 3, Gonzaga has gone 19-4 ATS. Those four ATS losses came when the Bulldogs were facing spreads of -32.5, -23.5, -30.5 and -20.5 respectively. The Bulldogs have the best scoring margin in the nation, an average of +23.8 points.
South Dakota Coyotes: 21-7 ATS
The Coyotes closed out the regular season atop the Summit and with a stellar 5-1 ATS record in their final six. As long as Matt Mooney and Tyler Flack continue to put up big points, South Dakota should win the league.
Colorado State Rams: 16-7 ATS
Easily one of the most consistent bets in the nation, Colorado State has gone 7-4 ATS as a favorite and 9-3 ATS as a dog. The Rams have covered in eight of their past 10 while holding opponents to 63.1 ppg in that span.
Dayton Flyers: 18-8 ATS
Dayton’s senior-laden lineup has the team rolling both SU and ATS, as the Flyers are tied for first in the A-10 while posting a stellar 18-8 ATS record. Dayton’s +10.4 average scoring margin is 22nd in the nation, thanks to a defensive-minded scheme.
Furman Paladins: 15-7 ATS
Furman has covered in 10 of its past 13 games and only failed to cover two of the ATS losses by three points or less. The Paladins have clinched themselves a playoff berth and could be in a good spot as long as Devin Sibley keeps scoring.
Western Michigan Broncos: 17-8 ATS
Bettors should have been tailing Western Michigan for some time, as the Broncos are 8-1 ATS in their past nine, including covering in each of their past six. Suddenly, Western Michigan finds itself in the MAC title hunt with three games left, two of which are at home.
Wyoming Cowboys: 17-8-2 ATS
Wyoming has been a precarious bet. The Cowboys do have a good ATS record on paper but have been inconsistent with an ATS mark of 8-6 since the start of the 2017 calendar. There has been a steadier trend of Wyoming covering away from home with the team going 9-4 between true road and neutral-site games.
Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders: 19-9 ATS
Since January 12, Middle Tennessee is 9-4 ATS and has only failed to cover some massive spreads in that time. Three of those ATS losses saw the Blue Raiders facing closing spreads of -21, -13.5 and -11 respectively.
Wofford Terriers: 19-9 ATS
A money play as an underdog, Wofford has gone 11-5 when being spotted points this season. However, the Terriers did fail to cover their last three regular season games as dogs.
Louisville Cardinals: 18-9 ATS
The KFC Yum! Center continues to be a great place to back Louisville with the team going 11-4 ATS at home. Also, keep an eye on the Cardinals’ totals with the team going OVER in 10 of their past 12 as of this writing.
Providence Friars: 19-10 ATS
Here’s hoping bettors have been following Providence for some time, as the Friars are 10-1 ATS in their past 11 games. That span includes the Friars going a perfect 8-0 ATS as underdogs.
Elon Phoenix: 17-9 ATS
Elon has gone 11-4 ATS in its past 15 with two of those failures to cover coming by less than three points. You’ll want to get the Phoenix as an underdog with the team going 9-3 ATS in that spot compared with 8-6 when giving up points.
Marshall Thundering Herd: 17-9 ATS
The Jekyll and Hyde story continues for Marshall, as the team has gone 9-2 ATS in Huntington but just 8-7 in road games. The Herd simply outscore opponents with the team averaging 85.7 ppg while allowing 84.4.
Purdue Boilermakers: 17-9 ATS
Purdue finds itself slipping in the rankings after going 0-2 this past week. That bad week of play was highlighted by an 82-70 loss to Michigan despite closing as a 1.5-point dog.
Arkansas State Red Wolves: 15-8 ATS
There isn’t any one spot that Arkansas State has specifically excelled in this season, but the Wolves have posted an ATS winning percentage higher than 66.7 percent at home, on the road, as a fave and as a dog.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish: 15-8 ATS
Notre Dame has been a hard team to trust for bettors, going 4-5 ATS in the past nine including a streak of three ATS wins and losses. The next game for the Irish comes against Boston College, a team they failed to cover against less than three weeks ago.
Butler Bulldogs: 18-10 ATS
Butler has dealt with its issues and seems to be closing out the conference schedule right, with SU wins in each of the past four while covering in three of those outings. Not surprisingly, Kelan Martin has averaged 20 points and eight rebounds per game in that span.
San Diego Toreros: 16-9-1 ATS
At one point the best bet in the nation, San Diego has fallen off dramatically and gone just 4-7 ATS in its past 11. The issues come at home, as the Toreros have covered just four times in 13 games at Jenny Craig Pavilion.
Fresno State Bulldogs: 14-8-2 ATS
Fresno State hit hard times for bettors, going 0-5 ATS between January 28 and February 11. Since then, the Bulldogs have won three straight SU and ATS. This dog has plenty of bite, as Fresno State has gone 8-2 ATS as an underdog this season.
North Dakota Fighting Hawks: 14-8-1 ATS
North Dakota has been on a tear in the Big Sky, with the Fighting Hawks winning their past six while going 5-1 ATS. During that span, North Dakota has averaged 84.7 ppg thanks to guard Quinton Hooker torching opposing defenses.
Minnesota Golden Gophers: 17-10 ATS
A seven-game winning streak has seen the Gophers join the top tier of the jam-packed Big Ten. That span has also seen Minnesota post an ATS record of 6-1 while averaging 81.3 ppg.
Loyola-Chicago Ramblers: 17-10 ATS
Loyola-Chicago continues to be incredibly unpredictable and likely a stay-away for bettors. Though the Ramblers have one of the best ATS records based on percentage, in their past 10 games they went 3-0 ATS, then 0-3 ATS, then 3-1 ATS.
