College basketball odds had the St. Bonaventure Bonnies as underdogs nearly every game a season ago.
That will probably be the case again although St. Bonaventure could be improved overall against the basketball odds in 2007-2008.
College basketball odds fans see that first-year head coach Mark Schmidt takes over the program. Experts that look at college basketball odds know that Schmidt spent the last six seasons as the head coach at Robert Morris.
College basketball odds fans know that Schmidt brings an up-tempo style of play to St. Bonaventure. Last season fans of basketball odds know that the Bonnies averaged just 67.5 points and ranked 13th in the Conference in scoring defense (78.5 ppg.) a year ago. The Bonnies return four players for fans of college basketball odds including two senior starters. Senior forward Michael Lee led the team in scoring a year ago and impacted basketball odds. Lee scored in double figures in 21 of the Bonnies’ 29 contests a year ago and impacted basketball odds. College basketball odds fans know that St. Bonaventure also returns its third and fifth leading scorers from last season in senior guards Zarryon Fereti and Tyler Relph. Fereti averaged 12.1 points before being dismissed from the team with four games remaining by then-head coach Anthony Solomon. Fereti earned his way back onto the team in the summer. Relph (9.8 ppg.) started 23 games as a junior last year for fans of college basketball odds. Tyler Benson (3.9 ppg.) averaged 11.7 minutes per game and also returns. Newcomers could also make a mark according to college basketball odds experts. Freshmen guards Da’Quan Cook, Malcom Eleby and Hillary Hailey could get playing time according to college basketball odds experts. Freshman forward Matt Morgan could also see playing time this season for the Bonnies. D’Lancy Carter also will provide support in the frontcourt for fans of college basketball odds this season.
St. Bonaventure also has two transfers that college basketball odds fans should watch in Chris Matthews and Maurice Thomas. The newcomers that need to produce are Eleby and Haley. Carter is the wildcard as he could easily make an impact according to experts that bet college basketball odds. It will probably still be a long year at St. Bonaventure but fans of basketball odds may want to keep an eye on the Bonnies in the future.
