Monte Ross heads into the second year of his rebuilding project at Delaware and with four starters back, basketball odds experts believe the Hens will be improved.
College basketball odds show that Delaware is led by second team All-CAA forward Herb Courtney, who ranked among the league’s top five in scoring (18.1 ppg) and rebounding (8.0 rpg) while recording a league-best 10 double-doubles. Experts that bet college basketball odds see that Senior Sam McMahon (10.4 ppg) is coming off a solid season in which he scored double figures in the final nine games. Experts that bet basketball odds see that Point guard Brian Johnson (9.6 ppg) made the CAA All-Rookie team after ranking fourth in the league in assists and setting a school record for minutes played. College basketball odds experts also see that returning is senior forward Henry Olawoye. Basketball odds experts see that six newcomers are expected to make an impact for the Hens, including Georgetown transfer Marc Egerson and Nebraska transfer Jim Ledsome who both will be eligible in mid-December.
College basketball odds experts know that Delaware will be improved but it did hurt that shooting guard Darrell Johnson announced that he was transferring. He averaged 6.3 points and 2.9 rebounds a game last season as college basketball odds experts remember. College basketball odds experts know that it will be up to Courtney to carry the load. Olawoye gives the Blue Hens an athletic presence inside according to college basketball odds experts while McMahon should improve this season. The other starter is Brian Johnson and he will only get better according to college basketball odds experts. There is no doubt, according to basketball odds experts, that transfers Marc Egerson and Jim Ledsome will make an impact during the season.
Delaware will be a team to watch on the college basketball odds board this season. Many experts that bet college basketball odds expect that the Blue Hens will be improved. How that translates into success against the college basketball odds is another question.
