NCAA-B | Seton Hall vs St. John's
Play on: Seton Hall +1½ -105 at BMaker
Game Analysis

Jack’s Free Pick Saturday: Seton Hall +1.5 

The Seton Hall Pirates were safely in the NCAA Tournament after their 19-5 start.  But they lost four in a row thereafter and have had to really fight these last few games to get off the bubble.  They beat DePaul at home before a huge 89-77 win at Providence.  They can’t afford to let up now because a loss to St. John’s would look very bad for them. 

St. John’s opened 0-11 in Big East play before shockingly winning four straight games over Duke, Villanova, Marquette and DePaul.  But they had their winning streak snapped with a 73-85 loss at Marquette last time out, and I certainly question their motivation the rest of the way now that they have nothing but pride to play for. 

Seton Hall is 7-0 ATS as a road underdog of 3 points or less or PK over the last three seasons.  St. John’s is 2-9 ATS after having won three of their last four games over the past two seasons.  The Red Storm are 1-8 ATS when playing against a good team (win % of 60% to 80%) this season.  Bet Seton Hall Saturday.

No. 1 Ranked Basketball Capper All-Time! Check the long-term results and you'll see that Jack Jones has put together a MASSIVE 1,822-1,556 Hoops Run since 2012 that has seen his $1,000/game players cash in a WHOPPING $154,770! You can look, but you won't find better!

No. 2 Ranked Basketball Capper in 2017-18! Jack has validated his long-term success on the hardwood with a tremendous start to the new season! He is off to a 204-159 Hoops Start this season while also riding a 352-265 Run L169 Days on all premium plays!

This money train stays right on track with Jack's MONSTER Saturday Hoops 7-Pack for $59.95! Leading the charge is a pair of top play winners in college hoops with his 20* Big 12 GAME OF THE WEEK and his 20* Arizona/Oregon ESPN Late-Night BAILOUT! You'll receive 1 NBA & 6 CBB winners in all upon purchase!

It would cost you roughly $255.00 to buy all seven plays separately, so YOU SAVE $195.00 with this 7-Pack! Plus, you are GUARANTEED PROFITS or Sunday's entire card is ON JACK!

NCAA-B | Indiana State vs Bradley
Play on: Bradley -5½ -105 at 5Dimes
Game Analysis

Dave’s Saturday Free Play: 

1* on Bradley -5.5 

The Key: The Bradley Braves have arguably the best home-court advantage in the Missouri Valley.  They have gone 13-1 SU & 10-1 ATS at home this season while winning by 13.0 PPG on average.  They even beat the best team in the MVC in Loyola-Chicago at home.  Indiana State, which is just 2-7 SU & 1-8 ATS in its last 9 games overall, will be no match for the Braves on Senior Day Saturday.  The Sycamores are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning record.  The Braves are 23-4-2 ATS in their last 29 home games dating back further.  Take Bradley.

Dave finished as the #1 Ranked Overall Capper in 2012 by a LANDSLIDE! He has put together a 2989-2625 Overall Run that has his $1,000/game investors up $73,470! Dave is also a 3-Time Top 10 NCAAB Capper while finishing ranked as the #1 NBA Capper in 2011-12 as well! He is riding 736-663 NBA & 466-394 NCAAB Runs over the long haul! He's also on a HOT 7-3 Hoops Run L6 Days! Hop on board for Dave's Saturday 5-Pack for $49.95! By doing so you'll earn access 1 NBA & 4 NCAAB picks! Dave guarantees you'll cash in a profit or you get Sunday's picks for FREE!

NCAA-B | Iowa State vs West Virginia
Play on: West Virginia -16 -105 at betonline
Game Analysis

Free College Basketball Prediction From DOC’S SPORTS :

Take West Virginia over Iowa State (6 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 24)

The Mountaineers aren't quite as scary as they led opponents to believe the first two months of the season. And because of their more downs than ups in recent weeks, a home win such as this against ISU is needed to re-take some of momentum they lost. And if nothing else, just simply avoiding a loss and getting another win, both in the Big 12 standings and overall, will help their cause toward March seeding. The Cyclones are just 4-10 in conference play, and the WVU defense will spark another turnover-prone result as they host ISU in what will be a big win.

NCAA-B | North Texas vs Florida Atlantic
Play on: North Texas -2 -110 at betonline
Game Analysis

The NCAAB comp play is on North Texas. Game 625 at 7:00 eastern. North Texas is 9-2 vs losing teams and FAU is 1-4 with road loss revenge and 0-4 ats as a home dog of 3 or less. The Florida Atlantic Owls are ranked 343 for offensive field goal percentage shooting 39.2% as they are one of the worst offensive teams in the country. The Mean green are 10-1 in the series winning 7 straight. They have covered 7 of 8 on the road and 8 of 11 off a loss. The Owls have failed to cover 4 of 5 at  home and 6 of 8 vs conference USA. Look for North Texas to take another from Florida Atlantic as the winning team moves to 11-1 to the spread in this series. Play on North Texas. RV

NCAA-B | Louisville vs Virginia Tech
Play on: Virginia Tech -4 -106 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

When these teams played back in their first meeting this season, The Cardinals took a 94-86 victory and now in pay back mode I expect Virginia Tech will return the favor. Louisville has lost 5 of their L/7 overall and have lost 6 of their 10 road games this season, and  currently fade material in their current form.

VIRGINIA TECH is 7-0 ATS l/7 revenging a same season loss vs opponent/. VIRGINIA TECH is 30-12 ATS  L/42 when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 60% to 80%). Vtech is 16-0 SU and 11-1 ATS versus .700 or less opposition this season.

VIRGINIA TECH is 15-6 ATS  L/21 vs. good free throw shooting teams - making 72% or better of their attempts.

LOUISVILLE is 0-8 ATS  L/8  in road games after failing to cover 4 or 5 of their last 6 against the spread over the last few seasons.

Play on Virginia Tech to cover

NCAA-B | Georgia Tech vs Clemson
Play on: Clemson -11½ -106 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

Don't miss ASA College Hoops TRIPLE PLAY for Saturday - 3 rated WINNERS for the PRICE OF ONE!  We're ready for a 3-0 Saturday, are you?

ASA PLAY ON Clemson -11.5 over Georgia Tech, Saturday at 3:00 PM ET

We think this is a fantastic spot to grab Clemson at home off 3 straight losses.  The Tigers have had a tough stretch losing @ Florida State in OT, losing at home to Duke and then getting beat @ Virginia Tech earlier this week.  All very tough games and the most recent two played without one of their better players, Shelton Mitchell, who is dealing with concussion issues.  Mitchell practiced the last few days and is expected to be back in the lineup for the Tigers which is a big boost as he averages 12 PPG.  This is a huge home game for Clemson as they are 9-6 in league play tied for 4th with NC State and Va Tech a game in the loss column behind UNC for 3rd.  Georgia Tech is just 4-11 in ACC play and the Jackets have been terrible on the road with a 1-9 record.  Their only road win came at last place Pitt.  All of GT’s road losses have come by at least 9 points so it’s not as if this team is playing games tough and to the wire away from home.  This will be their 3rd road game in their last 4 and they are off a physical battle with Virginia a few nights ago.  They actually played the Cavs tough for most of the night and still lost by 11.  Off that game on the road again, we have a feeling the Jackets will have a rough time here.  They are a very poor offensive team (14th in ACC offensive efficiency & 15th and dead last in eFG%) and they are facing a defense ranked 6th nationally in defensive efficiency.  We don’t expect Tech to get into the 60’s in this game.  Tech gave their top effort a few nights ago in Virginia and in a meaningless game here with two home games on deck, we like a motivated Clemson team to roll.

NCAA-B | Old Dominion vs Western Kentucky
Play on: Old Dominion +2 -110 at betonline
Game Analysis

DMack's Free Play for Saturday, February 24, 2018 is on the Old Dominion Monarchs

Great game here with Old Dom 17-2 L19 and Western Kentucky 14-2 L16 so something has to give. The Hilltoppers went 10-16 from downtown to win at Old Dominion on January 13th BUT ... Old Dom had won the prior six games in the series. The Monarchs have won six straight and are 8-0 on the CUSA road. WKU is 13-20-2 over time as a home fave and CUSA home faves are just 29-34. Old Dom wins by eight.

NCAA-B | Towson vs Hofstra
Play on: Hofstra -4 -102 at 5Dimes
Game Analysis

I'm recommending a play on Hofstra minus the points on Saturday.  Towson is 1-7 ATS its last eight games overall and 2-8 ATS its last 10 road games.  Hofstra beat the Tigers as an underdog on Jan. 11 and the Pride continues to improve winning six of its last eight games and winning and covering their last three, including Thursday's 77-61 rout at James Madison while shooting 56.5 percent. Hofstra is shooting 52.1 percent its last three games led by the one-two punch of Justin Wright-Foreman (24.1 points per game) and Eli Pemberton (16.3 ppg).  Freshman Jalen Ray came off the bench and added 15 points and three assists against JMU.  Towson has been overrated all season while constantly losing as a favorite and the Tigers are a small underdog in this matchup. Hofstra is 5-1-1 ATS its last seven games and we'll back them here.  I'm recommending a play on Hofstra minus the points on Saturday.  Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.

NCAA-B | Arizona vs Oregon
Play on: Oregon -2 -110 at GTBets
Game Analysis

Arizona vs Oregon Free Pick February 24, 2018

The Arizona Wildcats are in first place in the PAC12, and ranked #14 overall. It's not all good news for Arizona though, as head coach Sean Miller is facing an FBI investigation, and has been exposed in wire taps discussing paying $100,000 USD to sign freshman DeAndre Ayton. Allonzo Trier and Ayton lead the Wildcats in scoring, each averaging 19.6 points per game. Trier is serving a suspension for testing positive for a banned substance. Arizona needed overtime to beat minnows Oregon State without Trier in their last game. Now they face the Ducks, who will be playing their final home game. Oregon is 14-3 at home, and the Ducks are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between these two teams. The Ducks have covered the spread in four straight at home, while Arizona has failed to cover in 13 of it's last 17 against teams with a winning record. This was always going to be a tough road game for Arizona, but with all the controversy surrounding this team, it's now a lot tougher. I'll take the Ducks on Senior's Night.

Take ORE.

NCAA-B | Wyoming vs Fresno State
Play on: Wyoming +9½ -106 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

TWO 10 Star Plays on the College Hardwood Saturday

The Play and How to Play it:

The Play: Wyoming (641)

The Matchup: WYOMING (17 - 11) at FRESNO ST (20 - 8)

Start Time: Saturday, 2/24/2018 10:00 PM

SIM grading: 4 stars on a 3 to 10-star grading scale.

Recommended Strategy: Place a 7-star wager on Wyoming using the line. The current line shows Wyoming installed as a ten-point road dog.  

An alternative wager is to place a 5 star amount on the line and then add a 2 star amount using the money line. The money line is trading at about 345, which is paying back $345 for every $100 wagered should Ohio win the game straight-up. Of course, not all of these types of dogs will win SU, but over the course of the season, there will be enough of them where this type of combination wager adds a significant amount to your total profit over the course of a season.

Game Intelligence Analytics

      I.         Play on underdogs of 10 to 19.5 points (WYOMING).

NCAA-B | Providence vs Georgetown
Play on: OVER 146½ -110
Game Analysis

Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach CBB Game #521 Saturday Free Pick OVER the total in Georgetown Hoyas vs Providence Friars @ Noon ET - The Friars got their offense rolling again in the loss to Seton Hall (Wednesday night game started and then finished early Thursday due to floor condition issues). However, the struggles of the Providence defense continued and they now face a Hoyas team that has been red hot on the offensive end. Georgetown is on a 7-1 run to the over and I look for a shootout here. Free Pick OVER the total in Georgetown

NCAA-B | Villanova vs Creighton
Play on: Villanova -7½ -105 at 5Dimes
Game Analysis

This game features the 25-3 Villanova at the 19-9 Creighton. Creighton knows they should have 2 games they can win after this one in Depaul at home and Marquette on the road. I think Villanova comes out to crush here to further prove they deserve a #1 seed a loss here would knock them out of a 1 seed in the big dance. Creighton has lost 6 straight covers chalk this one up as well. Villanova is 19-9 ATS a major money making team. 15* Wildcats ***BE SURE TO GRAB CHASE'S 30 DAY PLAN WHICH IS ONSALE NOW FOR A SUPER LOW PRICE CHASE HAS WON 9 STRAIGHT GAMES AND LOOKS TO HAVE A HUGE MONTH***
