Teams You Should Check Out in the NCAAB Lines
Boston College (5-12)
The Eagles average just 62.2 points per game and that’s the main reason they’ve played Under the total at a high rate this season. The Under is 4-1 BC’s last five games.
The Horned Frogs average a modest 68.7 points per game and limit the opposition to 69.5 points per contest. Both figures are keeping TCU from playing over the total consistently. The Under is 6-2 in TCU’s last eight games. The Iowa State Cyclones (7-11-1) have also played Under the total consistently in the Big 12 this season.
Seton Hall (8-13)
The Pirates average a modest 74.4 points per game but put the clamps on their opponents by limiting them to just 66.5 points per game defensively. Seton Hall has played Under the total in three straight games and six of their last eight games overall because of their lack of scoring – and excellent defense.
The third-ranked Villanova Wildcats (8-12-1) are elite and play under the total consistently because they limit their opponents to a mind-boggling 61.1 points per game.
Sure, you may not know much about Idaho, but that’s okay. The Vandals average 66.0 points per game and give up 65.9 points per contest defensively. Idaho has played Under the total in five straight games and seven of their last nine games overall.
Michigan State (9-13)
The Spartans put the clamps on their opponents to limit them to just 62.4 points per game and that’s the main reason they play under the Total more often than not. The Under is 2-1 in the Spartans’ last three games.
San Diego State (7-12)
Steve Fisher has got his Aztecs team stopping the opposition like they’re the Po-Po or something. San Diego State is second in the nation in points allowed (59.8) and has played Under the total in four straight games and six of their last seven overall. Maybe you didn’t know, but San Diego State is where NBA Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard honed his craft under the venerable Fisher.
With LSU averaging 81.0 points per game and giving up 75.3 points per contest, you’d think their O/U record would be the polar opposite from what it currently is. The Tigers are simply facing a ton of high totals that even they can’t play over consistently. Vanderbilt (7-12-1) and Texas A&M (7-11) have also been consistent Under picks in the SEC so far.
When you play defense like the Huskies are for widely-respected head coach Kevin Ollie (61.2 ppg) then it’s no wonder UConn has been one of the most consistent Under picks in the nation this season. Case in point…the Huskies have played Under the O/U Total in seven straight games by not allowing more than 62 points in any contest.
St. Mary’s (7-11)
The Gaels are a team to watch this season college hoops bettors. St. Mary’s limits its opponents to just 60.3 points per game and that is why the Gaels are a great under pick, not to mention the fact that the under is 6-2 in their last eight games.
