    Tweet of the Day
    “Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, and I got lucky.”
    Titans’ QB Marcus Mariota, talking about Sunday’s comeback win

    Thursday’s quiz
    Who was the Tennessee Titans’ coach in their only Super Bowl appearance?

    Wednesday’s quiz
    When George H. W. Bush was President, Dan Quayle was the Vice President.

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Ray Malavasi, Dick Vermeil and Mike Martz have coached the Rams in a Super Bowl.

    ***********************

    Thursday’s List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud…….

    13) Arizona Diamondbacks traded their star 1B Paul Goldschmidt to the Cardinals Wednesday for P Luke Weaver, C Carson Kelly, a minor-leaguer and a draft pick.

    12) Denver Broncos’ WR Emmanuel Sanders tore his achilles in practice Wednesday, and is obviously out for the season. Sanders caught 71 balls for 898 yards this season.

    Within two hours of Sanders going down, Denver scooped up WR Andre Holmes off waivers from Buffalo. Holmes had previously played for OC Bill Musgrave in Oakland.

    11) There are 130 I-A college football teams; 10 of them are now coached by guys who were at one time, assistant coaches at Alabama under Nick Saban. Colorado hired Mel Tucker this week, the latest former Saban aide to get his own program to run.

    10) AAF is a spring football that starts in a couple months; they have eight teams and some big name coaches.

    XFL is another spring football league that will start in 2020 and won’t be like the goofy XFL that played in 2001, for one year only. Vince McMahon still owns the XFL; they’ll have eight teams, Oliver Luck is the commissioner- they’re going to pay their QB’s around $250,000 a year.

    9) San Antonio Spurs are only the 5th team in NBA history to lose three games by 30+ points within a week and they’re the first since the 2005-06 Trail Blazers.

    8) Adam Ottavino is a relief pitcher for the Colorado Rockies; he was on MLB Network the other day and he was saying how his father is a character actor in Hollywood who has been seen on Law and Order, NYPD Blue and in the movie Presumed Innocent, among others.

    7) Washington Redskins signed QB Josh Johnson to back up Mark Sanchez; Johnson was the 5th-round draft pick by Tampa Bay in ’08- he’s played in parts of 29 NFL games, is 0-5 as an NFL starter. He hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since ’14- he hasn’t thrown a pass since ’11.

    Johnson played his college ball at the U of San Diego (not San Diego State) where his coach was current Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.

    6) When Notre Dame basketball player Rex Pflueger was in junior high, he was the QB of his 7th grade football team; one of his teammates was Sam Darnold, who is now obviously a QB in the NFL the first-round pick of the Jets last spring.

    5) Fresno State is favored over Arizona State in the Las Vegas Bowl; it is only the 11th time in last 80 meetings between the two leagues that the Mountain West team is favored over a Pac-12 opponent.

    4) Georgia State 83, Alabama 80— This game happened Tuesday night, when the Crimson Tide led by 21 at halftime and then lost. Georgia State had lost their previous game to Liberty by 26, so this was a terrible loss for Alabama.

    3) Miami, FL was picked to finish in the middle of the pack in ACC basketball this winter, but they’ve now lost four games in a row, the last two to Ivy League teams, so it could be a long winter for the Hurricanes.

    2) ACC football teams are 2-5 vs SEC opponents this year, 0-7 vs spread.

    1) One of three.soldiers killed by an IED explosion last week in Afghanistan.was a man named Drew Ross, who was the son of former Georgia Tech/Chargers’ coach Bobby Ross. and was in his second tour of duty overseas. RIP to all three people who passed away; very sad thing.

    Thursday, December 6


    Purdue won its last four games with Maryland, all by 8 or fewer points; Terrapins lost last two visits here, 83-79/75-67. Boilermakers lost three of last four games after a 4-0 start; all three losses were against top 20 teams- they’ve played schedule #19. Purdue is experience team #198 that is making 38.6% on arc, and they take lot of 3’s. Maryland is 7-1 vs schedule #288; they’re experience team #350 (4th-least in country). Terps’ only loss was 76-71 at home to Virginia. Maryland is getting lot of good shots; they’re making 60.1% of their shots inside the arc.

    Wake Forest beat Charlotte last two years by 23-17 points; 49ers are experience team #336 that is 2-4 vs schedule #241- they lost both road games, by 20 at Davidson, 8 at Charleston- their best win was 66-64 at home over Oklahoma State- they were down 24 at one point. Wake Forest is 4-3 vs schedule #314; Deacons are experience team #332 that lost at home to #274 Houston Baptist- Wake’s best win was #137 Cal State-Fullerton. Deacons are doing good job at getting to foul line and are making 39.1% of their 3’s, but they don’t take that many of them.

    Drake has its third coach in three years; Bulldogs are 4-1 vs schedule #174, with only loss by 29 at #58 Colorado. Drake is experience team #116 (#340 in MC) that scored 83-95 points in last two games; Bulldogs start three seniors and a junior- they made 12-23 on arc in their last game. Milwaukee is 2-6 vs schedule #177, losing last two games by 19-15 points; Panthers’ only two wins are against teams that are ranked outside top 200. Milwaukee is in bottom 10 in country in forcing turnovers; they’re making only 30.7% on arc, they’re on 3rd coach in four years.

    Iowa State won four of last five games with Iowa; teams split last four meetings in Iowa City. Cyclones are 7-1 vs schedule #239- they got two of the four guys who were out back for last game- their bench has played #345 minutes so far.

    Pepperdine is 4-3 vs schedule #317; Waves are experience team #302 that lost at home to #322 Northridge Monday- both teams in this game have a new coach. Pepperdine starts a freshman, two sophomores; they’re forcing turnovers 22.3% of time, making 38.7% on arc while playing tempo #17. Riverside is 1-7 vs schedule #142, losing its last three games, by 12-10-9 points; Highlanders are experience team #330 that is turning ball over 21.3% of time while playing tempo #325.

    Oakland is 2-5 vs schedule #240, losing last two games by 20-10 points; Grizzlies are experience team #196 (MC #346) whose defensive eFG% is #337. Oakland usually plays fast, but so far this year, they’re playing tempo #313 while starting three juniors and a freshman. Fairfield is 2-6 vs schedule #271; Stags are experience team #303 that is shooting only 45.9% inside arc- their defensive eFG% is #289.

    No. 18 Iowa cruises past Iowa State, 98-84
    December 6, 2018
    ShareFacebookTwitterDiggMySpace


    IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) A 22-point loss at Michigan State left many wondering if the 18th-ranked Hawkeyes were for real.

    Iowa answered its critics on Thursday night by stomping archrival Iowa State - almost literally - to snap a two-game losing streak.

    Tyler Cook had 26 points and 11 rebounds, Isaiah Moss added 20 points and the Hawkeyes cruised to a 98-84 victory in a game marked by skirmishes in the first half and after the whistle.

    Nicholas Baer had 11 of his 14 points in the second half for the Hawkeyes (7-2), who shot 57.4 percent from the floor and outrebounded the Cyclones 44-24.

    ''We wanted to establish our running game. We wanted to establish our ability to move the ball, and get a lot of people involved - and then we had to rebound,'' Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said.

    Iowa took control with a 16-2 run late in the first half, and the Hawkeyes pushed their lead to 63-47 on Baer's 3-pointer early in the second half. Baer, who finished 4 of 5 from beyond the arc, then buried another 3 to make it 68-49.

    Freshman Talen Horton-Tucker briefly pulled the Cyclones (7-2) within eight with 6:05 left, but Iowa responded with eight quick points to put the game out of reach.

    Horton-Tucker scored 21 points and Marial Shayok had 19 for Iowa State, which had won its previous four games.

    ''We missed some bunnies. We could have scored 90. But you can't give up 98 and win on the road anywhere,'' Iowa State coach Steve Prohm said.

    Iowa junior Cordell Pemsl, who had planned to redshirt this season, made a surprise return to the lineup and had eight points and six boards off the bench. Freshman Joe Wieskamp also played after spraining his ankle in Monday's 90-68 loss at Michigan State and had seven points.

    THE BIG PICTURE

    Iowa: Pemsl had been bothered in the offseason by a knee injury he sustained in high school, and the Hawkeyes announced late last month that he would have to have surgery to remove hardware around that knee before he could play again. But Pemsl decided to practice on Tuesday, and felt good enough to go. ''There's nothing structurally wrong with my leg,'' Pemsl said. ''I'm allowed to play (if the pain) is tolerable.''

    Iowa State: Iowa State sophomore star Lindell Wigginton has been out since the second game of the season with a strained foot. The Cyclones really could have used his ability to break down a defense for easy buckets, especially during Iowa's big run in the first half.

    CHIPPY, CHIPPY

    Late in the first half, Connor McCaffery - the son of coach Fran McCaffery - and Iowa State's Michael Jacobson started yelling at each other. Pemsl ran over and shoved Jacobson, who then shoved Pemsl back. Iowa State got two shots and the ball once the officials sorted it all out, but all the Cyclones could do with it was a free throw and a shot clock violation. The teams got into another mini-skirmish after the final whistle, forcing Fran McCaffery to drag Cook off the court. ''It was a spirited game from the beginning, and that's what you expect,'' Fran McCaffery said. ''Wish it didn't happen.''

    POLL IMPLICATIONS

    Iowa looked as if it might be headed out of the poll after that decisive defeat against the Spartans. But what the Hawkeyes did to Iowa State, which could have been ranked come Monday with a win, might be enough for them to stay in the Top 25.

    HE SAID IT

    ''I apologize to Iowa and the staff. I didn't represent those moments the right way. I apologize. Right is right, and I was wrong and I apologize for that,'' Prohm said. ''It got chippy at the end. But we should have played better. We should have played harder.''

    Edwards' late surge puts Purdue past Terps
    December 6, 2018
    ShareFacebookTwitterDiggMySpace


    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Purdue guard Carsen Edwards always finds ways to score.

    Now the preseason All-American has started producing victories with a more well-rounded approach.

    Edwards finished with 20 points despite an off-shooting night, and delivered the decisive final flurry with two perfect passes for easy baskets to help Purdue hold off No. 23 Maryland 62-60 on Thursday.

    ''Even when he's not scoring, guys are looking at him, guys are paying attention (to him),'' center Matt Haarms said. ''If he's driving to the rim, you better believe there (are) three guys dumping and it makes it easier for the rest of us.''

    Despite going 4 of 15 from the field, Edwards knocked down three 3-pointers, including the one that gave the Boilermakers a 55-54 lead they never relinquished. He made all nine of his free-throw attempts, had four rebounds and three assists - including one to Aaron Wheeler for a layup and another to Haarms for a dunk - to give the Boilermakers a 59-54 lead with 5:18 left.

    Edwards wasn't finished.

    His late double-team forced Maryland into a turnover and when Nojel Eastern blocked Darryl Morsell's 3 at the buzzer to preserve the win, Edwards was one of the first to thank his teammate.

    The Boilermakers (6-3, 1-1 Big Ten) snapped a two-game losing streak and avoided starting conference play at 0-2 for the first time since 2013-14, even though it wasn't pretty.

    ''He probably didn't have his best game tonight but he made some big plays,'' Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said of Edwards.

    Anthony Cowan Jr. led Maryland (7-2, 1-1) with 18 points, and Bruno Fernando finished with 10 points and 13 rebounds.

    But the Terrapins blew multiple chances to take control and pick up an early-season road win.

    Instead, after taking an eight-point lead in the first half and a 34-30 halftime lead, Maryland allowed the Boilermakers to quickly tie the score at 41 in the second half and then played see-saw until Edwards warmed up.

    Maryland got as close as 60-59 on Cowan's two free throws with 7.2 seconds to go but Edwards answered with two free throws and Eastern's block closed it out.

    ''It was a really good game for him,'' coach Matt Painter said, referring to Edwards. ''It didn't go his way in terms of shooting, but I think he did a lot of other things for us.''

    BIG PICTURE

    Maryland: The Terrapins shot 28.6 percent from the field in the second half, finished the game going 1 of 9 from the field and scored only six points in the final 7 1/2 minutes. They need to be much better to contend for a Big Ten title.

    Purdue: While the Boilermakers continue to struggle offensively, Painter appreciated the grit his team demonstrated in playing its third straight game against a ranked opponent.

    STAT PACK

    Maryland: The Terrapins finished the game by going 1 of 9 from the field. ... Morsell had 12 points. ... Fernando made his first 3 of the season and the second of his career while recording his fifth double-double this season. ... Cowan needs seven points to reach the 1,000-point mark. ... Maryland has outrebounded each of its first nine opponents.

    Purdue: Wheeler scored a season-high 15 points while Haarms had 10 points, six rebounds and three assists. ... Eastern left for a short time in the second half with what appeared to be an injured right leg. Haarms also appeared to get hurt in a scrap for a loose ball. ... The Boilermakers finished with 16 turnovers, 10 in the first half.

    THEY SAID IT

    Maryland: ''It felt like they had six guys out there (defensively),'' Turgeon said. ''They were everywhere.''

    Purdue: ''You have a (scoring) drought, your two leading scorers shoot the percentages that they did, you get outrebounded by 10 and you have 16 turnovers, you think you'd lose the game,'' Painter said. ''We were able to hang in there and be in a good position.''

    UP NEXT

    Maryland: Will try to rebound against one of last year's Final Four teams, Loyola Chicago, in Baltimore on Saturday.

    Purdue: Makes the next stop on a challenging schedule Sunday at Texas.

    “The gist of the conversation was more along the lines of just a friend reaching out to another friend, but as far as that concerns of him helping us out, or different things like that, anytime that you can have a coach of his caliber that wants to be around and be able to be an extra set of eyes, has a great vision for offense but also just football in general.

    Those are things that when you have some rare friendships like I’ve been fortunate to form in this profession, you want to be able to, No. 1 be supportive of your buddy, but No. 2 if it’s something that can help you improve as a team, if somebody wanted to do that, we’re always looking for ways to do that.”

    ******************

    Friday’s List of 13: Some college knowledge……..

    Request for college basketball fans: If you know of an impact transfer who is going to become eligible this month, please e-mail his name/school to me and we’ll post it for everyone’s benefit, because not every school’s semester ends at the same time.

    I have two right now:
    Butler- Tucker
    Western Kentucky- Bearden.

    These two teams will be helped because these kids can play now. Adds some depth and increases the talent level.

    For today, I’m looking at college basketball conferences so far this season:

    13) Big X:
    — Kansas (schedule #10)/Texas Tech (schedule #339) haven’t lost yet
    — Iowa State is 7-2 but has been missing four guys for various reasons; two of those guys came back two games ago. Cyclones’ bench minutes are #345, but depth is on the way.
    — West Virginia is 5-3, has very young guards, and I’m not sure how they get a lot better, unless those young guards suddenly become good young guards.
    — Texas is 5-3, losing at home to Radford/VCU. This is Shaka Smart’s 4th year at Texas- his teams at Texas have played tempo #306-212-316-194.

    When he was at VCU, Smart’s teams played tempo #69-156-173-91-22-70. Why the difference, other than pressing/trapping is hard unless your players are better athletes than your opponents.

    12) Big 14:
    — They’re playing 20 conference games now, so teams play two games in December.
    — Five teams started conference play 2-0; five started 0-2.
    — Illinois is 2-7, the only team under .500
    — Seven Big 14 teams are in KenPom.com‘s top 30
    — Nebraska, Northwestern are two most experienced teams in league.

    11) ACC:
    — Duke is #343 in experience, which is why college hoop handicapping has become so difficult, weighing talent against experience. I want Duke to play Nevada in March.
    — Virginia is only unbeaten team in the league.
    — Pitt was 7-1 before losing at home to Niagara; whoops- they start three freshmen.
    — Louisville is 6-2 vs schedule #86 in Chris Mack’s first season; great job so far.
    — ACC has eight teams in the top 32
    — Miami lost last four games, with three losses by 4 or fewer points.

    10) SEC:
    — Auburn/Tennessee are two highest-rated teams, a change from normal.
    — Kentucky is 7-1 vs schedule #319; they lost 118-84 to Duke- best team they’ve beaten is #71 NC-Greensboro.
    — South Carolina was in Final Four two years ago; they’re 21-20 since. Not good.
    — Texas A&M is 3-4 vs schedule #204; they’re experience team #274, Could be a down year.
    — Vanderbilt lost its star freshman PG Darius Garland for the season (knee)

    9) Big East:

    — St John’s is 8-0 vs schedule #322; how good are they?
    — Georgetown is 7-1 vs schedule #304; same question.
    — Only four Big East teams are listed in the top 50.
    — Creighton has made 45.8% of its 3’s (#2) so far this season.
    — If you were wondering, Indiana State (48.8%) is #1
    — Villanova is playing 5th-slowest tempo in country so far.

    8) Pac-12:
    — Only one team ranked in top 40 and Oregon is only 4-3.
    — USC is 0-3 vs top 70 teams; their five wins are vs teams ranked #198 or lower.
    — Washington is #1 in country in minutes continuity; they’re 6-3 with two top 10 losses (Auburn/Gonzaga).
    — UCLA is 6-2 vs schedule #229; they’re #351 in experience, with two key freshmen out for year with injuries. Best team they’ve beaten so far is #122 LMU.
    — Arizona State is 7-0 vs schedule #282, but they were 12-0 in pre-conference play LY, and wound up 20-12.

    7) AAC:
    — 4 of the slowest 15 tempos in America are teams in the AAC.
    — Temple is 7-2 vs schedule #155 in Fran Dunphy’s last season as head coach.
    — Central Florida is 6-2, with two losses by total of 3 points.
    — Wichita State is 4-3 vs schedule #112; they’re a total rebuild (#343 in MC).
    — Memphis is 4-4 vs schedule #54; Tigers start two freshmen, three seniors. Better beat the Tigers now; Penny Hardaway is going to dominate recruiting in Memphis, which will put them in the top 25 sooner rather than later.

    6) WCC:
    — #8-rated conference right now; they were 14th three years ago, #12 LY.
    — Gonzaga is to the WCC what UNLV was to the Big West 30 years ago; huge fish in a small pond that carries the league’s banner on national stage.
    — San Diego beat San Diego State, USF pounded Cal Wednesday; middle of pack in this league has improved a lot, but St Mary’s is a bit down.
    — LMU is playing pack-line defense like Virginia and it is working- they’re 9-1.
    — If BYU jumps into a league for football reasons, who replaces them in WCC? Hawai’i?

    5) Mountain West:
    — Nevada is 8-0 and starts five 5th-year seniors; will the coach be back next year?
    — Wolf Pack is only team in MW in top 60; its a one-bid league, unless someone beats Nevada in the conference tournament.
    — Fresno State is #17 experience team that is probably 2nd-best team in league; they’re 6-2 and start three seniors, two juniors.
    — Boise State is 2-5, with losses to Idaho State/Drake; could be a down year, after winning 20+ games the last six years.
    — UNLV is turning the ball over 24.4% of time and shooting 27.7% on the arc, which is why they’re 4-3 vs schedule #324- their first road game is Saturday at Illinois.

    4) Atlantic 14:
    — League was #10 LY and is #10 this year, their lowest ranks since 2007.
    — A-14 is down right now: #70 Davidson is their highest-rated team.
    — Saint Louis was touted this year, but they’re turning ball over 21.7% of time and making only 29.9% of their 3’s. Despite that, they’re 6-2 vs schedule #217.
    — VCU has had six coaches since 2002, and no losing records. Big fish, smallish pond, and no football to take resources away from basketball.
    — LaSalle changed coaches but change isn’t always positive; they’re 0-9 this season, with losses to Lafayette, Bucknell, Drexel, Grand Canyon- they wouldn’t be the best team in the freakin’ Patriot League.

    3) MAC:
    — Buffalo is legitimately good; they won at West Virginia, are #42 experience team.
    — Toledo is only other MAC team in top 100, so its likely another one-bid year.
    — Rockets are 8-1 and making 41.5% of their 3’s; they’re experience team #81.
    — You look at Kent State’s 7-1 record, then you look at schedule #343- no thanks.
    — Western Michigan is 4-4 vs schedule #314; they’re turning ball over 22.9% of time and making 29.5% of their 3’s, not a good combination.
    — Bowling Green has one winning season since 2010; their coach that year was fired because of an incident in a bar, where the coach was drunk and being a jerk. That coach is now at New Mexico State and his team is 7-1- some schools would’ve built the guy his own private bar.

    2) Missouri Valley;
    — Defections have crippled this league; Wichita State-Creighton were difference-makers.
    — Loyola-Chi is their only top 90 team, and they’ve lost three of last four games.
    — Evansville’s new coach is former NBA player Walter McCarty; Purple Aces are trying to play faster- they’ll be interesting to follow the next couple years.
    — Drake is experience team #116, but #304 in MC, so they’ve been cobbled together by transfers. Bulldogs are also on their third coach in three years, which doesn’t help, but they’re 5-1 so far this season.
    — Northern Iowa won 184 games from 2009-16, but they’re 33-37 the last 2+ seasons, so the coach’s seat has to be getting a little warm.

    1) Ivy:
    — Yale won at Miami, beat Cal, lost in OT at Memphis; their eFG% is #5 in country.
    — Harvard is 4-4 vs schedule #28, but they also lost at #274 Siena.
    — Columbia is 0-6 vs D-I teams, vs schedule #329. Could be a long winter.
    — Penn Quakers are 7-2, are experience team #63- they start two juniors, two seniors.
    — Cornell is #34 experience team, lost by only 8 at Syracuse- did Boeheim take it easy on the Big Red because his son plays for Cornell? (No, he didn’t)

    Friday's Tip Sheet
    David Schwab

    College basketball betting action heats things up on the West Coast this Friday night highlighted by a showdown between the No. 6 Nevada Wolf Pack and the No. 20 Arizona State Sun Devils.

    This the last of three games on Friday’s slate in this year’s Air Force Reserve Hall of Fame Classic at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The first game of the night pits the New Mexico Lobos against the Saint Mary’s Gaels followed by the TCU Horned Frogs taking on the USC Trojans.

    No. 6 Nevada Wolf Pack vs. No. 20 Arizona State Sun Devils (ESPN2, 11:59 p.m. ET)

    Opening Odds: Nevada -8, Total 160

    Betting Matchup


    All the preseason hype surrounding the Wolf Pack as one of the top teams in the nation has panned out in early play with a solid 8-0 straight-up start. After covering as 5 -point road favorites in Saturday’s 73-61 win against USC, they improved to a highly profitable 7-1 against the spread. The total stayed UNDER 161 in that game and it has stayed UNDER in six of Nevada’s first eight games.

    Senior forward Jordan Caroline scored 22 points in Saturday’s win against the Trojans to eclipse his 18.5-point scoring average for the second time in his last four games. He is also averaging 10 rebounds a game. Another senior forward, Caleb Martin leads Nevada in scoring this season with an average of 19.9 points per game. He recently scored 29 points in a win against Massachusetts. The Wolf Pack have put up an average of 88 points through their first eight games.

    Arizona State has remained unbeaten in its first seven games, but it dropped to 5-2 ATS after failing to cover as a heavy 19 -point home favorite in Saturday’s 83-71 victory against Texas Southern. The total stayed UNDER 161 points in that game and it has stayed UNDER in four of the Sun Devils’ last six contests. In their only game as underdogs (+4 points) this season, they beat Mississippi State 72-67 on Nov. 19.

    This is another team that knows how to put some points on the board with a scoring average of 86.1 PPG. However, Arizona State is not known for playing the tightest defense in the nation with a points-allowed average of 70.7. With a deep roster that boasts four different players averaging at least 12 points a game, freshman guard Luguentz has had the hottest hand with 21.7 PPG. He lit things up against Utah State in a 87-82 victory on Nov. 21 with 33 points while going 10-for-15 from the field.

    Betting Trends

    -- The Wolf Pack have covered the spread in their last four games against the Pac-12 and they are a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last four games played on Friday. The total has gone OVER in five of their last six neutral-site games.

    -- The Sun Devils are 5-0 ATS in five previous Friday games and they have been able to cover in five of their last seven games played at a neutral site. The total has gone OVER in seven of their last nine games against the Mountain West.

    -- These two teams played each other in back-to-back seasons from 2011 to 2012 with the road team winning each contest SU. Nevada was 2-0 ATS as an underdog with the total going OVER in both games

    Friday Bonus Matchups

    New Mexico vs. Saint Mary’s (7:00 p.m. ET)

    Opening Odds: Saint Mary's -6, Total 159


    The Lobos were hammered 100-65 an in-state battle on the road against New Mexico State on Tuesday night as 6 -point underdogs to fall to 4-2 SU and 2-4 ATS through their first six games. The total has gone OVER in all six contests.

    St. Mary’s has been a mixed bag at 5-4 SU through its first nine games. Losses to Harvard and UC Irvine as home favorites were the most troubling, but the Gaels were able to cover as 10 -point home favorites in a recent win against the Pac-12’s California Golden Bears. They are 6-3 ATS and the total has gone OVER in seven of the nine games.

    TCU vs. USC (FOX Sports 1, 9:30 p.m.)

    Opening Odds: TCU -2, Total 147


    With Wednesday’s 67-59 road victory against SMU as slight 1 -point favorites, the Horned Frogs improved to 6-1 SU. They have been able to cover in their last three games after going 0-4 ATS to start the season. The total stayed UNDER 145 points against the Mustangs and it has stayed UNDER in five of TCU’s first seven games.

    The recent loss to Nevada dropped USC to 5-3 SU with an even 4-4 record ATS. The total has stayed UNDER the closing line in four of its last six games. In their only other game against the Big 12 this season, the Trojans came up well short as 6 -point underdogs in a 78-63 loss to Texas Tech on No. 19.
