Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in College Basketball This Week

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in College Basketball This Week

There is no hotter brand with the College Basketball odds than the Auburn Tigers. Last Saturday, War Eagle scored an impressive home win over Kentucky on CBS National TV. It arguably ranks as the biggest regular-season win in school history. But just like the stock market, what goes up must come down. And with the Tigers brand getting unprecedented attention, squares are taking notice. Oddsmakers have noticed a vast increase in traffic on Auburn games. Thus, the Tigers are no longer a hidden gem. Auburn may soon be an overlay.

Hottest Teams College Basketball

Auburn Tigers

At the onset of the week, Auburn is riding an eight-game offshore betting payout streak. The Tigers have improved to 18-1 straight up, 15-4 against the spread, and 11-8 over the total. Auburn ranks 17th out of 350 teams in the country for scoring offense and 103rd for points allowed. The 80-71 win over Kentucky was no fluke. Consider how War Eagle took over the game in the second half. Freshman forward Jabari Smith leads with 15.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.

Auburn is at a bad Missouri team on Tuesday, January 25. And then the Tigers host a tough Oklahoma squad on Saturday, January 29.

Monmouth Hawks

At the beginning of the week, Monmouth is in top form with seven payouts in their most recent ten games. The Hawks are 11-6 straight up, 14-3 against the spread, and 5-12 under the total. Monmouth ranks 197th for scoring offense and 175th for points allowed. Specifically, Monmouth’s signature win this season was a 56-52 win at Pitt. Senior guard George Papas leads the Hawks with 15.9 points and 5.9 rebounds per game.

Monmouth hosts Canisius on Friday, January 28, and hosts Niagara on Sunday, January 30.

Davidson Wildcats

Late on, Davidson has covered six of its last nine games. The Wildcats stand at 16-2 straight up, 13-4 against the spread, and 10-7 over the total. Overall, Davidson ranks 61st in the nation for scoring offense and 116th for points allowed. Senior guard Hyunjung Lee leads the Wildcats with 16.2 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.

On Wednesday, January 26, Davidson will host Virginia Commonwealth. And then, on Saturday, January 29, the Wildcats will host La Salle.

Coldest Teams College Basketball

Pacific Tigers

Specifically, gamblers looking for a team to oppose would do well to look at the Pacific Tigers. Pacific has failed to cover nine of its last ten games with the College basketball odds. Now the Tigers stand at 5-12 straight up, 2-13 against the spread, and 8-5 over the total. Pacific has terrible national metrics of 306th out of 350 teams for scoring offense and 187th for points allowed.

On Thursday, January 27, Pacific is in Portland. And then, on Saturday, January 29, the Tigers host BYU.

Drake Bulldogs

Drake is an interesting case of a good team with terrible board value. To show, the Bulldogs are 14-6 straight up but just 4-13 against the spread and 10-7 over the total. Drake ranks 116th for scoring offense and 99th for points allowed. Last year Drake was a March Madness squad. This season they are on the bubble. From a gambling perspective, too many squares have learned about Drake. Further, the Bulldogs now get the best shot and full attention of every opponent.
