3 Unit Play. Take #758 Louisiana Tech -3
over Old Dominion
(9:30p.m., Thursday January 7 CBSC)
Was a bit confused on this number because La Tech is a perfect 9-0 at home while ODU is 0-4 on true road games. Last year Old Dominion beat up the Bulldogs 72-53 and what I read is that the Bulldogs remember that loss and I see revenge at Thomas Assembly Center. If ODU can’t slow down Erik McCree tonight at home then I see revenge getting made and I see the Bulldogs racking up another double-digit home victory. Grab this -3 now because wouldn’t shock me to see this number close at -5. La Tech is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and ODU is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games.
5 Unit Play. Take #772 Cal Riverside -4
over CS Fullerton
(11:00p.m., Thursday January 7)
Yes I know the Titans are coming off a win against Cal St. East Bay in their last game but that was at home and what division is CSEB. Last year the home team won on their home floor and tonight I see Riverside taking control of this game at home in the second half. Riverside is coming off a bad home loss in their last game to CS Bakersfield 67-48. The Highlanders shot the ball horrendous in that game shooting 34% for the field, 2-12 from 3-point land, and 48% 12-25 from the free throw line. I don’t see these numbers happening tonight because the Titans defense on the road has been questionable. Riverside at home will play better and again I see them controlling this game in the second half and throw in that the Highlanders are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games. CS Fullerton is 1-6 ATS against conference opponents and the Titans are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games.
