2007-2008 Stanford Cardinal College Basketball Betting Odds

College basketball betting odds on Stanford may be even lower this season as the Cardinal returns their entire starting lineup that led them to the NCAA Tournament a year ago.

All-Pac-10 junior forward Lawrence Hill led Stanford with 15.7 points and 6 rebounds per game according to basketball betting stats. College basketball betting odds stats show that junior guard Anthony Goods (12.8 ppg) gives the Cardinal a legitimate three-point threat as he connected on 60 three-pointers and ranked fourth in the league with 2.40 treys per game according to basketball betting stats.

Goods improved his scoring from 2.7 points as a sophomore to 12.8 points last season according to basketball betting stats. College basketball betting odds experts see that sophomore twin towers Brook and Robin Lopez will give the Cardinal one of the most dominating interior tandems in the nation. Brook, a Pac-10 All-Freshman selection, was third on the team in scoring (12.6 ppg) and matched Hill with team-high rebounding honors at 6 per game according to basketball betting stats. Robin posted 7.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and a Pac-10 leading 2.35 blocks per game according to college basketball betting odds stats. Robin had 73 blocks and Brook had 45 blocks according to college basketball betting odds stats. The Cardinal established a school record with 184 blocked shots last season according to college basketball betting odds stats.  Junior guard Mitch Johnson (4.3 ppg) and senior guard Fred Washington (8.2 ppg) return to distribute the ball as the two combined for 216 assists (6.9 apg) and were among the league's top ten in assist/turnover ratio according to college basketball betting odds experts.

Stanford is loaded this season and will make a definite impact in college basketball betting odds.  They will have to recover from last year’s poor finish when they lost 8 of 12 including a 20-point defeat to Louisville in the NCAA Tournament's first round that disappointed gamblers that bet college basketball betting odds.  Experts that look at college basketball betting odds also know that Stanford must cut down on turnovers as they were last in the league in turnover margin (-3.06) according to college basketball betting odds stats. The Cardinal will make some noise in the Pac-10 this season and impact college basketball betting odds but they probably don’t have quite enough to handle UCLA for the top spot.
