Auburn Leads College Basketball Hot and Cold Teams for This Week

Auburn Leads College Basketball Hot and Cold Teams for This Week

Namely, Bruce Pearl is one of college basketball’s most controversial coaches. Pearl has been a lightning rod for over 30 years. At the onset of the controversy, he tapped a wayward coach and went public with it. Ironically, Pearl has been the source of NCAA investigations in recent years. And he has totally refused to cooperate. Yet wherever Pearl goes, he beats the College Basketball lines. And that is one of the reasons why Pearl is so popular with gamblers. Renegade winners have a way of winning the hearts of the betting public.

Hot – #4 Auburn Tigers

Late on, Auburn has beaten the offshore betting odds in six consecutive games. Over the total has paid in four successive War Eagle outings. Auburn stands at 16-1 straight up, 13-4 against the spread, and 10-7 over the total. Overall, the Tigers rank 22nd for scoring offense and 111th for points allowed. Forward Jabari Smith leads Auburn with 16.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per game.

At the onset of the week is a January 19 home game against Georgia College Basketball. UGA is one of the worst teams in the SEC and will be a heavy underdog. In sum, Georgia is 5-11-1 against the spread this season. And they rank 315th out of 350 teams for points allowed.

Most important of all is a Saturday home game against Kentucky. Auburn will have a full house for this one against the SEC’s biggest brand.

Hot – #12 LSU Tigers

Also bossing the payout window out of the SEC are the LSU Tigers. The Bayou Bengals have paid in seven of their most recent ten games. And then eight of those ten games went under the total. LSU is 15-2 straight up, 13-4 against the spread, and 3-14 under the total. Tari Eason leads LSU with 15.4 points and 7.0 rebounds per contest.

On Wednesday, LSU is at Alabama, which has been struggling to get the cash recently. And then, on Saturday, the Tigers have a tough road team at Tennessee. The Vols are one of America’s better defensive teams.

Hot – #13 Wisconsin Badgers

Wisconsin is one of the hottest teams on the board with the College basketball lines. To show, the Badgers have covered four consecutive games and seven of their last ten. Further, UW went over the total in six straight games. The Badgers are 14-2 straight up, 11-5 against the spread, and 11-5 over the total. Jonathan Davis is averaging 21.7 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

On Tuesday, the Badgers are at the Northwestern Wildcats. Following that is a Friday night clash against the Michigan State Spartans.

Not – NC State Wolfpack

Gamblers have been drowned in red ink by the NC State Wolfpack. The Pack is 9-9 straight up, 5-13 against the spread, and 12-6 over the total. NC State ranks 311th out of 350 teams for points allowed. As a result, they have allowed too many backdoor covers that have busted countless bankrolls.

Not – Georgia Bulldogs

Georgia head coach Tom Crean is on one of the hottest seats in the country. And with plenty of good reason. UGA has gotten worse in his four years at the helm. Consider that Georgia stands at 5-12 straight up, 5-11-1 against the spread, and 9-8 over the total. Georgia has failed to cover six of its most recent eight games. Of major concern is a defense ranked 315th for points allowed.
