College basketball betting line odds usually have Canisius as an underdog most of the time.
Canisius has had six straight overall losing records according to basketball betting experts and hasn’t been above .500 in MAAC play since the 1998-99 season. College basketball betting lines odds will probably not move much in favor of Canisius this season but that could change in future years. The program is definitely moving in the right direction with an incoming freshman class that could wind up among the best in the program’s history according to basketball betting experts.
Some of the Golden Griffins’ seven newcomers will have to make immediate impacts for the team to escape the bottom part of the league standings this year according to college basketball betting lines experts. The only returning starters are 5-8 sophomore point guard Frank Turner (11.9 points per game and 5.6 assists per game according to basketball betting stats) and 6-7 forward Pawel Malessa (6.3 ppg, 2.2 apg according to basketball betting stats). Another returnee, 6-8 Shaun James (3.7 points per game according to college basketball betting lines stats) should also move into the starting lineup according to college basketball betting lines experts.
There should be plenty of opportunity for youngsters according to college basketball betting line experts. Leading the way according to experts that look at the college basketball betting lines will be 6-6 Elton Frazier from Syracuse’s Corcoran High School. Also in the mix according to college basketball betting lines experts are 6-4 Julius Coles of Blair Academy and JUCO transfer 5-10 guard Willie Hassell. The newcomers will need to play well this season if Canisius is to have a winning season versus the college basketball betting lines. It is not impossible though, so caution is advised if you are betting against Canisius every single game versus the college basketball betting lines.
Canisius still has a way to go to compete for the top spot in the conference but they have some young talent that could surprise on occasion and make an impact on the college basketball betting lines. The Golden Griffins will probably still have a losing season according to college basketball betting lines experts but they may not be as bad as last year.
