West Virginia vs Texas Tech

by K McCune

Texas Tech It is currently located alone in the large 12th floor basement. The Red Raiders are 0-7 in league play, a record that would have been unfathomable just a few weeks ago.

But the technology’s unsuccessful start belies its true potential.

Four of his seven losses have come by six points or fewer. The Red Raiders had a 13-point lead at TCU before losing by six, nearly beat Kansas in Lubbock, lost in overtime to Oklahoma, and fell just two points short of rival Texas.

If two things happen to break in a different way, the stature of the tech conference looks very different.

Tonight is TTU’s best chance left to get into the win column. West Virginiano slouch itself, is the most “underdog” of Tech’s remaining opponents, and the Red Raiders have one of the best home courts in college basketball.

Tech’s style also gives them the edge tonight, especially on the defensive side, as they propagate their “no center” philosophy. The Red Raiders’ focus on this end is to clear the middle of the floor inside the arc – there are no easy buckets inside.

They force opponents to be jumping shooters and dare to defeat them with contested shots.

To date, WVU is the worst three-point shooting team in the Big 12; The Mountaineers have only shot 29.8% from depth in multiplayer.

WVU needs to attack the edge, win the glass battle and reach the free throw line to score. Tech is the best team in the Big 12 on errorless defense, and fresh healthy transfer Fardaws Aimaq has improved his rebounding overall.

Aimaq has had three games to shake the cobwebs after missing the start of the season, so we should see an even better version of the former WAC Player of the Year tonight.

The spot heavily favors Texas Tech tonight, and the Red Raiders must be hungry for their first ever Big 12 win.

Fordham vs. St. Bonaventure

by K McCune

Sometimes a simple handicap is the best handicap. Sometimes home and away directions against the spread are important.

At least, that’s what I’m hoping for tonight in Olin.

Saint Bonaventure It has always been a tough place to play under head coach Mark Schmidt, but this year, Bony takes it to another level.

Combine their success at home with their sheer desperation on the road, and you have one of the most underrated Jekyll & Hyde teams in college basketball.

The Bonnies are 9-1 at home this year, both straight and against the spread. They cover their home matches by more than five points per competition.

Far from Olean in real road games, the Bonnies are 0-7 on a straight and 1-6 against the spread with a coverage margin of -10.2.

There must be some kind of magic in that part of New York.

Traveling to Olean is tough, even for a team like Fordham who resides in the same state. The drive from Bronx to Olean takes about 5.5 hours on the road.

The Rams are 0-10 straight and 1-9 against the spread in the past ten games against St. Bonaventure. They haven’t beaten Bonnies in Olean since March 2013, in nearly a decade.

While this Fordham team is better than it has been in years past, the programs are still at different levels.

Scoring can be difficult in a hostile environment, and that’s likely the case for Fordham, who comes with the A-10’s worst offensive efficiency numbers in conference play.

The Rams make just 41.7% effective field goals against league opponents, which should hold against the Bonnies’ staunch defense.

The Bonnies rarely make mistakes on the offensive end, especially at home. And they were best imaged light-years away at the sympathetic boundary of the Rayleigh center.

Expect the good times to continue for St Bonaventure at home as they look to continue their dominance at Fordham.

Louisville vs. Boston College

by K McCune

ACC game tonight between Louisville And Boston College It promises to be an ugly affair. In terms of efficiency and pace—the two factors that affect scoring—this factor is about as gross as it gets.

Louisville was the ACC’s worst offensive team this season. In eight league games, the Cardinals scored 0.886 points per possession. That would be good for about the fourth-worst offense nationally scoring Cards at that rate all season.

BC didn’t fare much better, scoring reach as the ACC’s 12th offense, a good fact for a Louisville team that also struggles to prevent opponents from scoring.

Louisville especially struggles stopping foes in transition, allowing 1.135 points per possession to rank 343rd in the country, per Synergy.

BC doesn’t really seem to run, and when it does, it’s not pretty. Boston College ranks 259th in percentage of possessions ending in transition and 264th in points per possession in transition, per Synergy.

Louisville slowed its offensive pace in conference play, perhaps realizing its lack of talent compared to the rest of the ACC and moved the pace to a boisterous halt to muddy games.

BC also played relatively slow in ACC play. In just four games all season, the Eagles have had over 70 possessions (one of which was in overtime).

Finally, free throws are often a spoiler for sure-shooting under the pot, but they shouldn’t be a huge factor in this.

Louisville got to the line at a good rate, but BC has been great this season on defense without fouling. Even when the Cards get to the line, they’re converting at 65.5% worse than the ACC.

On the other end, BC rarely hits the line.

It all amounts to a very attractive bet on what is sure to be an ugly game.

Expect the possession count to hover around 65 in this contest and for the scoring to be sparse as both teams lift weak shots only for them to fall off the rim and/or backboard with a clatter.
