College basketball betting on Friday includes a game that was never on the original schedule.
Saint Mary’s added a home game against Eastern Washington to give Pat Mills some extra playing time heading into the post season. The Gaels are big favorites in college basketball odds in this matchup.
College basketball betting will be popular on Saint Mary’s in this matchup. The Gaels could be on the March Madness betting board but that decision won’t be announced until the NCAA Tournament selection committee makes their picks on Sunday. Regardless, the Gaels will be somewhere and involved in March Madness betting since the NIT would definitely invite them. That is why the Gaels wanted another college basketball betting game. Mills did not practice for five weeks and missed a total of nine games with his injury as basketball betting numbers indicate.
Eastern Washington finished 12-17 and thought they were done with their regular season. Saint Mary’s is 25-6 as college basketball betting numbers show after getting blown out by Gonzaga in the WCC Championship game. Mills is averaging 17.8 points per game this season as college basketball betting stats show, but had just 17 total points in two tourney games.
The addition of a game this late in the college basketball betting season is extremely unusual. Eastern has played in the NCAA limit of 29 games, but their game at Hawaii in December is exempt so they can play one more. Saint Mary’s played three of its 29 games in the 76 Classic in Anaheim, putting it one game short of the NCAA limit of 27 games plus one qualifying regular-season multiple team event.
The two teams played one common opponent this season and that team was Portland. Eastern defeated the Pilots 63-58 while Saint Mary’s was 2-1 against Portland as the college basketball betting stats tell us. The Gaels lost 84-66 at Portland while winning 77-65 at home and in the WCC Tournament as college basketball betting results show.
The Eagles are 6-13-1 in college basketball odds in their last 20 games overall. The Eagles are 3-8-1 versus the college basketball betting odds in their last 12 road games. The Eagles are 0-4 against the college basketball odds in their last 4 non-conference games.
The Gaels are 6-1-1 as far as college basketball betting lines in their last 8 non-conference games. The Gaels are 6-1 versus college basketball betting odds in their last 7 home games. The Gaels are 6-1 in college basketball odds in their last 7 vs. Big Sky.
