Naismith College Player of the Year Odds

At various points of the college basketball season it seemed like different players were a lock to win the Naismith Player of the Year award. The early part of the season saw everyone universally agree it should be Denzel Valentine of Michigan State, but as the year progressed the consensus changed to Buddy Hield of Oklahoma.

Raptors Have Been Unbeatable At Home

The Toronto Raptors will be gunning for their 13th consecutive victory at the Air Canada Centre when they host the Houston Rockets Sunday. During the Raps home winning streak they have been outscoring opponents by 10.3 points per game, while facing an average closing spread of -6.7.

The Raptors offense has been ridiculous over the past month and a half, with the team scoring 100-plus points in 19 of their previous 22 games. The backcourt combination of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry has been unstoppable so far in March, with the duo averaging a combined 64.5 points in their past two outings.

James Harden has been known to put an a show when he travels north of the border, as the bearded one has averaged 26.3 points per game in Toronto. Harden also enters Sunday’s affair averaging 36 points in his past six games, which includes two games of 40-plus points.

St. Louis Has Been Cruising On The Road

The St. Louis Blues have been road warriors as of late with the team winning six of their past seven while travelling. The Blues have outscored their hosting adversaries 23-18 since the start of February, with the lone defeat coming in a 5-0 loss to Nashville. Vladimir Tarasenko and company will pack their bags and travel to the Land of 10,000 Lakes to take on the Minnesota Wild Sunday.

The Blues will enter this game refreshed as they are coming off a four-day break between games, their longest stretch of the season. Alex Steen has been a thorn in the Wild's side this season, as the winger has notched two goals and three assists in four games against Minnesota.

The Wild come into Sunday looking for their fifth-consecutive win, which would be their longest such streak of the season. Minnesota has allowed less than two goals per game over during their current four game streak, as goalie Devan Dubnyk has posted a .934 save percentage.

Wisconsin Rolling Within Conference Play

The first half of the season for Wisconsin was largely forgettable, but the second half has seen the Badgers dominate within the Big Ten. Wisconsin will enter the conference playoffs streaking, as the are 11-1 SU and 10-2 ATS in their past 12 games within the conference. The Badgers will take a four-game winning streak into their regular season finale against the Purdue Boilermakers Sunday.

The Badgers have quietly dominated within the Big Ten thanks to their stellar defense, which holds their opponents to just 63.5 points per game. During Wisconsin’s current winning streak they have averaged just 66.5 points per game, but have held their foes to 56.3 points per game.

Purdue has not gotten much media play this season, but the Boilermakers rank within the top 25 in assists, rebounds and points allowed this season. If Purdue wants to sweep their regular season seres against Wisconsin this season, they will need to find some secondary scoring. When the Boilermakers defeated the Badgers in December they had just one player (A.J. Hammons) score double-digit points.

Faves Dominating in This Big Ten Rivalry

The Maryland Terrapins late season struggles opened the door for Indiana, as the Hoosiers have locked up the Big Ten regular season crown ahead of their final meeting of the year Sunday. The favorites have been the best bet when Maryland and Indiana meet with the faves going 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS in their past six meetings.

A late season shooting slump from star Melo Trimble highlighted the Terrapins recent 2-3 SU record, with the senior shooting just 36 percent, which included a dreadful 1-for-14 performance against Wisconsin. Maryland’s recent struggles have been bad for bettors as well, with the team going just 1-3-1 ATS in their past five outings.

Indiana has been largely overlooked this season with a schedule that is softer than others in the Big Ten, but the Hoosiers enter Sunday’s affair riding a four-game winning streak. Point guard Yogi Ferrell has been the offensive centerpiece for Indiana all season with the senior averaging 17.1 points per game, the third-most in the Big Ten.

Jacob deGrom
