Pomeroy's College Basketball Predictions 3-4-10

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.

Eastern Michigan 66, Central Michigan 62 (+4.5, Over 127.5)

Western Michigan 66, Ball State 57 (Even, Under 127)

Miami (Ohio) 69 (-2.5, Over 132.5), Buffalo 65

Mount St. Mary's 70, St. Francis PA 55 (No Line)

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

Coming into today: SIDES = 5-6... TOTALS = 14-10

UNDER 127 Ball State at Western Michigan (4) WIN

UNDER 123 Dayton at Richmond (7) WIN

MISSISSIPPI -12.5 vs. LSU (4.5)

UNDER 110 USC at Arizona State (5)

NEVADA -6.5 vs. New Mexico State (3.5)

OVER 162.5 New Mexico State at Nevada (5.5)

OVER 144 Washington at Oregon (4)

OVER 134 Southern Illinois vs. Drake (5) LOSS

 OVER 132.5 Missouri State vs. Evansville (3.5)

 

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