The team has a new head coach in Billy Taylor so perhaps all is not lost and the team can make a mark versus basketball lines. NCAA basketball lines experts know that Peyton Stovall leads Ball State. He enters his senior season 21 points shy of scoring 1,000 points according to NCAA basketball lines stats, ranks seventh all-time in school history in three-point field goals but he always seems to be hurt. Stovall averaged 8.8 points and played in all 31 games a year ago according to NCAA basketball lines stats. He has scored in double figures 47 times in his career, including nine games with 20-or-more points according to basketball lines numbers. Junior Anthony Newell is the top returning scorer from a year ago after averaging 11.9 points and a team-best eight rebounds per game according to NCAA basketball line stats. Newell scored in double figures 24 times, including 10 of the final 12 games in 2007 according to NCAA basketball lines numbers. Junior Brandon Lampley, who played in 13 games as a sophomore, and redshirt freshman Rashaun McLemore completes the group of returning players according to basketball lines experts.
The newcomers that NCAA basketball lines experts see are Laron Frazier and Rob Giles who are transfers along with three freshmen, Melvin Goins, Malik Perry and Deontay Twyman. NCAA basketball lines experts know that Goins is a highly-touted prep recruit from Christian Life High School in Humble, Texas. He averaged 25 points and six assists a year ago in high school.
NCAA basketball lines experts know that joining Goins in the freshman class are Malik Perry, who sat out the second semester at Ball State a year ago, and Maryland high school standout Deontay Twyman.
NCAA basketball lines experts see that Ball State will play five consecutive road games from Nov. 27 through Dec. 1 at St. Joseph’s, Valparaiso, Purdue, Indiana State and Arkansas State. A 16-game MAC schedule opens Jan. 6 at Toledo for gamblers that look at NCAA basketball lines numbers. The First Energy MAC Tournament at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland slated for March 12-15 for gamblers that look at basketball lines. Ball State will probably struggle in the MAC this season both straight up and against the NCAA basketball lines.
