7 Unit Play. #762 Take Stanford -7 over Green Bay (9 pm PAC-12 Network) Stanford has been known to lay an egg in some early season games but they cannot afford that to happen this season, as Johnny Dawkins is once again on the hot seat. The Cardinal were playing good basketball at the end of the season and won the NIT to become one of the few teams to end their season with a victory. The Cardinal have to replace much of their talent from last year but they still have size and should be able to out muscle the Phoenix. The Cardinal got to play together in Italy this summer and that should only help them this season.
But this play is mostly going against Green Bay, as the Phoenix have to replace their coach and all-everything player. Keifer Sykes now plays in the NBADL and he was two time conference player of the year for a team that dominated the Horizon League regular season but choked against Valparaiso in the conference tournament last year. They also lost their coach in Brian Wardle who seemed to understand the writing on the wall making a lateral move (if that) to Bradley. This is a rebuild situation fort Linc Darner and this team is going to struggle compared to the last few years. A1serviceplays.com Stanford picked up a bunch of nonconference wins in the NIT last year and they have now covered 7 of their last 9 games out of conference. Green Bay is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games. Green Bay is making the trip to Stanford for a check and you can bet that the PAC-12 does not want to see Stanford start off with a loss (ie the refs Stanford hires for this game). This spread should be double digits and we will take advantage of a soft line.
4 Unit Play. #764 Take Arizona -23 over Pacific (9:30 pm PAC-12 Network) The Tigers may have three key players out for this game due to academic issues but either way Arizona will win this game big. The Wildcats could not get over the hump last season by making it to a Final Four but they just reload and will have another outstanding team this year. The Tigers have not fared well against PAC-12 teams going 1-9 ATS (1 push) in their last 11 match-ups. The Wildcats have covered 13 of their last 18 home games.
4 Unit Play. #800 Take Duke -23 over Siena (7 pm ESPN U) Duke is becoming Kentucky as Coach K is starting to embrace the one and done idea. Duke has to replace a ton of talent from last season but they recruit the very best in the country and should be able to pull away late from the Saints. The Saints do not have the players that can challenge Duke and Cameron and thus I expect a victory by the home team of close to 30 points. The Blue Devils have covered the spread in 10 of their last 11 home games.
4 Unit Play. #840 Take Wisconsin -26.5 over Western Illinois (9 pm BTN) The Badgers are in a rebuilding year with only two starters returning but they open-up play at the Kohl Center against one of the worst division one teams in the country. Wisconsin still plays a system and great defense and that will allow them to pull away late and win this game by 30+ points. The Leathernecks are predicted to finish last in the Summit League and won just 3 conference games last year. Western Illinois is 7-29 ATS in their last 29 road games. Wisconsin beat a similar team in the exhibition season by 55 points.November 13, 2015 at 8:25 pm #14284
