2007-2008 St. Peter’s Peacocks College Basketball Betting Lines

College basketball betting line odds on St. Peter’s can be much higher than they were a year ago when the Peacocks went a pathetic 3-15 in conference and 5-25 overall.

Things look to be a little better for St. Peter’s this season according to basketball betting experts. College basketball betting lines experts see that head coach John Dunne has some work to do.  The offense last season was pathetic, averaging just 59.6 points per game according to college basketball betting lines stats.  The good news according to college basketball betting experts is that St. Peter’s has three returning starters.  The backcourt will be led by a pair of seniors, Tim Spitler (4.5 points per game according to college basketball betting lines stats) and Raul Orta (13.3 points per game according to basketball betting lines stats). Freshman Nick Leon (Brooklyn, NY) may also get some playing time according to college basketball betting lines experts.  Also expected to get playing time according to college basketball betting lines experts are freshmen Darrell Lampley (Linden, NJ), Wesley Jenkins (Newark, NJ) and Kahlil Mumford (Philadelphia).

The frontcourt will be led by senior Todd Sowell, who averaged 13 points and 8.5 rebounds per game last season according to college basketball betting lines experts.  Akeem Gooding will also be available this season according to basketball betting experts.  He averaged 10.3 points and 5.7 rebounds per game according to basketball betting numbers.  The other key returnee up front according to college basketball betting lines experts is redshirt junior Ismaila Traore, who missed all of last season due to injury.  Three freshmen forwards, Jordan Costner (Montclair, NJ,), Ryan Bacon (Union, NJ), and John Hogga (Phoenixville, PA) may get some playing time according to college basketball betting lines experts.

A tough part of the schedule that college basketball betting lines experts will look at for St. Peter’s is in early January as they face Siena, Marist and Iona.  St. Peter’s will win more than five games this season but may still struggle to get out of the bottom of the MAAC according to college basketball betting lines experts.
