Tuesday’s Tip Sheet
By David Schwab
This Tuesday night’s men’s college basketball schedule features a pair of conference showdowns in both the ACC and the Big 12 where each of the teams facing one another are ranked 11th or bettor in the latest Coaches Poll. Both games also tip-off at 7 p.m. to double-down on the excitement with the Miami Hurricanes on the road against the Virginia Cavaliers in the ACC and the top-ranked Kansas Jayhawks out of the Big 12 going on the road to square-off against the West Virginia Mountaineers.
No. 9 Miami Hurricanes at No. 11 Virginia Cavaliers (7 p.m. ESPNU)
Betting Point-spread: Virginia -5
Miami comes into this showdown in solid form after extending its current straight-up winning streak to eight games with this past Saturday’s 72-59 romp over rival Florida State as a 9 ½-point home favorite. The Hurricanes are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven contests and the total has stayed UNDER in their last three games after staying UNDER the 147 ½-point line against the Seminoles.
The Hurricanes are led by senior guard Sheldon McClellan with an average of 16.3 points per game. He has been able to dial things up even higher in his first two ACC starts this season with a combined 43 points while hitting 12-of-22 from the field. Miami is averaging 82.8 points a game, while holding opponents to 64.9 PPG at the other end of the court.
Virginia worked its way into the Coaches Poll Top 5 with an 11-1 SU record in nonconference play, but it took a pretty steep tumble in the latest rankings following back-to-back road losses to Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech as solid favorites. Including a 77-66 home victory against Notre Dame in its ACC opener as a 9 ½-point favorite, the total has gone OVER in all three conference games.
The Cavaliers woes on the road this season have been reflected in a points-allowed average of 70.3 in three SU losses as opposed to a season average of 60.9 points allowed that is the 10th-best total in the country. Their top scorer is senior guard Malcolm Brogdon with an average of 16.8 PPG. Virginia is averaging 74.4 points a game and it falls well down the Division I list in rebounds with 33.4 a game.
The Hurricanes have covered ATS in five of their last six road games and they are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games following a SU win. The total has stayed UNDER in 17 of their last 24 Tuesday games.
The Cavaliers have bounced-back with a 7-2 record ATS in their last nine games following a SU loss, but they fall to just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games against a team with a SU winning road record. The total has stayed UNDER in eight of their last 11 games after failing to cover in the previous outing.
Head-to-head in this ACC matchup, the road team has a 5-1 edge ATS in the last six meetings and the total has stayed UNDER in three of the last five meetings in Virginia.
No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks at No. 10 West Virginia Mountaineers (7 p.m. ESPN2)
Betting Point-spread: PICK
Kansas is off to a 3-0 SU (2-1 ATS) start in the Big 12 this season as part of its current SU winning streak of 13 games dating back to late-November. It has gone 6-1 ATS in its last seven games including a 69-59 victory against Texas Tech this past Saturday as a seven-point road favorite. The total stayed UNDER the 149 ½-point closing line in that game and it has now stayed UNDER in four of its last six outings.
The Jayhawks remain one of the most prolific scoring teams in the nation with an average of 88.4 PPG. Four different players are averaging at least 10 points a game led by senior forward Perry Ellis with an average of 16 points. The team’s top shooter has been junior guard Wayne Selden (15.5 PPG). He is hitting 53.2 percent of his shots from the field and 50.6 percent from three-point range.
The 14-1 Mountaineers continue to climb the rankings following a SU 3-0 start in conference play. They knocked-off Oklahoma State 77-60 as 14 ½-point home favorites their last time out. It was just the second time they covered ATS in their last six games and the total stayed UNDER the 143 ½-point closing line after going OVER in their previous three contests.
Saturday’s win against the Cowboys was the first time in West Virginia’s current seven-game SU winning streak where it failed to score at least 84 points. The team is averaging 88.1 PPG during this same stretch as opposed to a season scoring average of 86 points that is the sixth-highest total in the country. The Mountaineers have four players averaging at least 12 PPG led by junior forward Devin Williams.
The Jayhawks are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following a SU win and they have covered in their last four road games. The total has stayed UNDER in 10 of their last 13 games played on Tuesday.
The Mountaineers are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games played at home, but they have failed to cover in five of their last seven games following a SU win. The total has gone OVER in six of their last seven conference games.
The home team in this matchup has covered ATS in five of the last six meetings and the total has gone OVER in four of the last five games between these two.January 12, 2016 at 12:25 pm #25413
