NCAA basketball odds will have Idaho State and underdog most of the time in 2007-2008. The Bengals went 13-17 last year but finished a surprising 8-8 in the conference for fans of NCAA basketball odds.
With so many starters lost it may be tough for the Bengals to duplicate that success for fans of basketball odds this season.
NCAA basketball odds experts see that coach Joe O’Brien begins his 2nd year at the helm of Idaho State. Fans of basketball odds should know that O’Brien had a strong personality that may have rubbed people the wrong way but most of those players are now gone. O’Brien kept Idaho State competitive versus NCAA basketball odds with his "razor zone" defense. His team does not have the talent of the top teams in the conference according to NCAA basketball odds experts but the team can surprise at times. The key for Idaho State this season will be to find someone to run the offense and keeping teams from clogging the middle. Outside shooting will be a big key for the Bengals this season to take pressure off their big men.
NCAA basketball odds experts see that the Bengals lost their top two guards and their top two centers. The good news according to experts that bet basketball odds is that the team gave freshmen playing time last season. NCAA basketball odds fans also see that two JC transfers have arrived. Lucas Steijn, a 6-foot-10 center, and Chron Tatum, a 6-7, 220-pound forward, both should fight for starting spots upfront according to NCAA basketball odds experts. NCAA basketball odds experts know that Logan Kinghorn and Matt Stucki are returnees that should also get playing time. Fans of basketball odds may remember that Stucki averaged 9.9 points per game and 4.1 rebounds while Kinghorn averaged 7.8 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. NCAA basketball odds fans will want to watch Steijn. He should be the starting center. Experts that follow NCAA basketball odds know that he started his career at Indiana then transferred to a junior college where he averaged 10.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. The question according to NCAA basketball odds experts is who will run the point. If the Bengals can answer that question positively then they could make a mark versus NCAA basketball odds this season.
