The Rams will look to senior center Stuart Creason this season to form the nucleus of a young team that will probably be an underdog in basketball betting lines most of the time. College basketball betting lines experts know that Creason will be the focus of the opposition and a key for CSU.
He played in all 30 games for the Rams in 2006-07, starting 27, and led the team in field-goal percentage, shooting 67 percent, and returns as the Mountain West’s leading shooter according to college basketball betting lines stats. He pulled down 5.5 rebounds per game according to college basketball betting lines stats. Also in the mix down low is 7-footer Ronnie Aguilar who played in 11 games off the bench according to basketball betting experts. Joining the returnees are 11 new faces, with Marcus Walker and Willis Gardner likely to make the biggest impacts according to basketball betting experts. Both are experienced JC players that may eventually impact the college basketball betting lines. Additionally, six freshmen join the Rams and may get playing time according to college basketball betting line experts. College basketball betting line experts see that they are Flynn Clayman, Andre McFarland, Joshua McGinley, Adam Nigon, Josh Simmons and Jesse Woodard. College basketball betting lines experts know that the class was ranked the best in the Mountain West and No. 32 nationally.
Overall, college basketball betting experts see that only nine scholarship players are on the roster and two of them, Andy Ogide (Ole Miss) and Dan Vandervieren (Purdue) will sit out this season. The top incoming players in the backcourt according to college basketball betting lines experts are ex-Nebraska guard Marcus Walker and freshman wing Andre McFarland. There is no doubt that Walker will need to score and help take the pressure off Creason. Point guards Willis Gardner and Jesse Woodard and scorer Josh Simmons will also get playing time according to college basketball betting lines experts.There is little doubt that Colorado State will be an underdog the majority of the time in terms of the college basketball betting lines. The Mountain West is down this season but not enough for the Rams to make much of an impact in terms of basketball betting odds.
