Arguably the most talented team in betting lines college basketball action last year the Tigers seemed to have the national championship in their grasp before a second half collapse. The majority of the team’s core of talent has now passed on to the NBA and there are many questions surrounding the team’s college basketball betting lines campaign this year.
College basketball betting lines makers have a generally high opinion of the team and the Tigers debut in the betting lines college basketball rankings at the 13 spot and this, by most accounts, is still an elite team. Last year not every college basketball betting lines pundit was sold on this team since the Conference USA schedule is not all that demanding, but once the NCAA tournament began there was little doubt as to how good this team was.
But in this year’s college basketball betting lines action gone are star guards Derek Rose and Chris Douglas-Roberts as well as big man extraordinaire Joey Dorsey. With sixty percent of its starters gone –including the number one pick overall in the NBA draft- most teams would fold in the college basketball betting lines. But Memphis is a recruiting hot bed thanks to Coach Calipari and this year’s freshman class is loaded with talent.
Freshman point guard Tyler Evans, a 6’6” dynamo and the possible savior for Tigers in the betting lines college basketball action. He’ll have to take over the role that Rose left vacant, but with talent in the supporting cast. But that doesn’t mean that the cupboards are bare by any means. Returning starters Robert Dozier and Antonio Anderson were key to last year’s college basketball betting lines. They run the championship game and are both ready for a larger role in this year’s college basketball betting lines competition.
But any college basketball betting lines fan that has seen the Tigers play before knows that the rotation runs deep. Fortunately Calipari has six other players returning from last year’s squad and the Tigers should be able to run just about any opponent off the court with a deep reservoir of conditioned bodies.
The teams’ ultimate success against the college basketball betting lines in the NCAA tournament will ultimately fall on the shoulders of Evans. Whether he wants it or not, a huge burden of college basketball betting lines pressure falls on this young man.
