Pomeroy's College Basketball Predictions for 3-2-10

Ken Pomeroy uses stats and his own unique methods (efficiency ratings, etc.) to come up with predicted final scores for college basketball games.  The following are his predicted scores for today's games based on his system.  I am NOT recommending using this as the sole basis for any wagers.  This information should only be used as another ingredient in your handicapping formula.

Note: Team in bold is the home team.  Team with the spread next to it is the recommended play according to the predictions.

Syracuse 75 (-14, Under 137), St. John's 60

Villanova 77, Cincinnati 74 (+4, Over 149.5)

Minnesota 63 (-1, Under 125.5), Michigan 61

Central Florida 73, East Carolina 63 (+12.5, Under 137.5)

UTEP 72 (+1, Under 148), Marshall 71

Florida 74, Vanderbilt 72 (+3, Under 147.5)

South Florida 62 (-2.5, Under 124.5), DePaul 59

Southern Miss 63, Tulane 52 (Even, Under 118.5)

North Carolina 76 (-4, Over 143.5), Miami (FL) 71

Clemson 71, Georgia Tech 65 (+6.5, Under 138)

Missouri 75, Iowa State 68 (+5.5, Even)

Baylor 76 (-3.5, Under 147.5), Texas Tech 71

Nebraska 71, Colorado 67 (+5, Over 137.5)

Marquette 72 (-2, Over 137.5), Louisville 67

Wyoming 66, Air Force 60 (Even, Under 127)

Cleveland State 69, Loyola Chicago 61 (+11, Over 129.5)

Wisconsin - Green Bay 73 (-9, Even), Youngstown State 63

Valparaiso 74, Detroit 73 (+2, Over 143.5)

Wisconsin - Milwaukee 76 (-12, Under 140), Illinois - Chicago 63

Morehead State 74, Jacksonville State 60 (+14.5, Under 136.5)

Murray State 80, Tennessee State 60 (+20.5, Over 138.5)

Austin Peay 81, Tennessee Tech 72 (Even, Over 150.5)

Eastern Illinois 66, Eastern Kentucky 65 (Even, Over 128.5)

Ohio State 72 (-9.5, Even), Illinois 62

Radford 69, Charleston Southern 58 (No Line)

Winthrop 62, Liberty 55 (No Line)

Coastal Carolina 101, VMI 75 (No Line)

NC - Asheville 76, High Point 73 (No Line)

 

Looking for games with at least a 3-point overlay against the spread, we find the following (Overlay is in parentheses):

UNDER 148 UTEP at Marshall (5) LOSS

UNDER 124.5 South Florida at DePaul (3.5) WIN

UNDER 118.5 Tulane at Southern Miss (3.5) LOSS

OVER 143.5 Miami (FL) at North Carolina (3.5) LOSS

MARQUETTE -2 vs. Louisville (3) WIN

LOYOLA - CHICAGO +11 at Cleveland State (3) LOSS

OVER 143.5 Detroit at Valparaiso (3.5) WIN

 

Again, at most, this information should only be used as a small part of your handicapping.

  • Tulane/Southern Miss is at 123 at betus.
