2007-2008 Tennessee State Tigers College Basketball Betting Odds

December 1, 2010 NCAA Basketball

College basketball betting odds on Tennessee State will be lower this season as the team gets guard Bruce Price back from injury.

Price was the OVC Freshman of the Year in 2004 after averaging 17.6 points and 4 assists per Game according to basketball betting stats. College basketball betting odds should be impacted by the return of senior Ladarious Weaver who hit 93 3-pointers a season ago.  College basketball betting odds experts know that head coach Cy Alexander starts his fifth year at the helm of Tennessee State.  The 2007-08 Tigers return four of last season’s five top scorers, led by Weaver who averaged 13.7 points per game according to college basketball betting odds stats and swingman Andrae Belton who averaged 11.1 points per game according to college basketball betting odds stats.  Coach Alexander feels that the Tigers’ mixture of veterans and new players (4 seniors, 4 juniors, 2 sophomores, 3 freshmen according to basketball betting stats) give the Big Blue a good mix.

Veteran players include 6-8 junior forward Jerrell Houston who averaged 9.2 points per game according to college basketball betting stats.  Senior guard Reiley Ervin averaged 9.6 points per game according to college basketball betting odds stats.  Senior swingman Moraye Ivy averaged 6.8 points per game according to basketball betting stats.  Key additions to this year’s team include JUCO 6-9 forward Stephen Evans (Oakton CC) and 6-4 swingman Emmanuel Gaiter (Wabash Valley CC) according to college basketball betting odds experts.  James Craft, a 7-0 transfer center from Wright State, will play this season after sitting out last season according to college basketball betting odds experts.  The Tigers’ freshman class features 6-0 guard Gerald Robinson, Jr., who averaged over 28 ppg at Nashville’s Martin Luther King High School and was a finalist for Tennessee’s Mr. Basketball award.  Two other front court players in 6-8 Dontrell Taylor and 6-7 Darius Cox were also key additions to the signing class according to basketball betting experts.

For the Tigers to improve this season, Coach Alexander is looking for improved guard play according to college basketball betting odds experts.  He expects this team to run more and create offense.  There is no doubt according to college basketball betting odds experts that Price and Houston will lead the way.  College basketball betting odds experts look for Tennessee State to be a much improved team and a team that will make some noise in the Ohio Valley this season.
