NCAA basketball odds on Eastern Washington could be pretty high this season as the team loses perhaps the best player in Big Sky history, guard Rodney Stuckey.
Fans of basketball odds will have to be very careful about betting the Eagles this season.
NCAA basketball odds experts see that Eastern Washington has a new coach in Kirk Earlywine. He takes over for Mike Burns who was let go after not even making the postseason with superstar Stuckey. Fans of NCAA basketball odds should know that Earlywine reportedly tried to get out of his contract and go to Ball State. Considering the returning talent of the Eagles, that may not have been a bad idea according to experts that bet NCAA basketball odds. Experts that bet NCAA basketball odds know that Eastern Washington finished 15-14 last year and 8-8 in the conference. That is far better than what is in store for them this season according to NCAA basketball odds experts. Experts that bet NCAA basketball odds see that the Eagles return virtually nothing from last year’s team. The only returning players are role players although Kellen Williams did start. Experts that follow NCAA basketball odds see that the projected starting five is Adris DeLeon, Marcus Hinton, Kellen Williams and Brandon Moore. The other forward spot is up for grabs according to experts that bet basketball odds.
The player to watch this year according to NCAA basketball odds experts will be point guard Adris DeLeon who comes to Eastern Washington from the College of Southern Idaho. He was supposedly an excellent player when he grew up in New York and will need to carry the load if the Eagles are to be competitive versus the basketball odds. Fans of NCAA basketball odds see that DeLeon averaged 8.3 points and 3.9 assists per game for the College of Southern Idaho last year. He will be matched up in the backcourt with Hinton who started nine games last year for Eastern Washington basketball odds fans. Fans of NCAA basketball odds think that Kellen Williams will have to improve upon his 8.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game to give the Eagles some inside scoring. Overall it looks like it will be a very long year for Eastern Washington both straight up and against the NCAA basketball odds this season.
