NBA Injuries, College Basketball Betting Inside Info and Free Pick

Filed under: Uncategorized — Joe Duffy @ 9:55 AM

College basketball betting notes, plus NBA injuries from

Wisconsin at Purdue 

Totals of 116 or less go over 360-291-10 rate 

However total has climbed as high at 116.5 at MYBookie after opening at 111 at Betonline

After averaging 7.3 points in his first nine games of the season, sophomore forward Trevion Williams is averaging 14.8 over his past 10 games for Boilermakers 

Purdue struggling on defensive boards

Purdue’s struggles mean they may up the pace 

Marquette at Butler 

Marquette 14th in offensive efficiency, but Butler 16th on defense 

Marquette very good from perimeter, but Butler outstanding defending 3

Warriors 187th in second-chance points, while Butler 12th in allowing points off offensive rebounds 

But Marquette third on defensive rebounding second chance points, while Marquette middle of road crashing offensive boards

Not much scoring unless both teams light it up

Butler 335th in pace of 353 teams 

Northern Kentucky at Wright St 

Wright State 229th in field goal percentage while NKU solid #113 on defense 

NKU 31st in converting turnovers into points 

Wright State vulnerable defensively inside, but NKU does not have offense to exploit that 

Northern Kentucky slow-down game, ranked 295th in pace

The pick: UNDER 

Jimmy Butler, MIA vs LAC, questionable 
Jayson Tatum, BOS @ ORL, questionable

Andre Drummond, DET vs MEM, probable 
Trae Young, ATL @ OKC, questionable 
Jaylen Brown, BOS @ ORL, questionable 

Kendrick Nunn, MIA vs LAC, questionable 
Michael Porter Jr., DEN @ NO, questionable

Patrick Beverley, LAC @ MIA, questionable 
Bruce Brown, DET vs MEM, questionable 
Gary Harris, DEN @ NO, questionable 
Wesley Matthews, MIL @ CHR, probable
Lauri Markkanen, CHI vs SAC, probable 
Steven Adams, OKC vs ATL, questionable 

Top expert pick on today’s card is from Joe Duffy, off a sweep! Second straight 3-0 sweep tonight is led by two Wise Guys among three NBA winners. I’ve been a pro handicapper since 1988 and “for fun” years before that. I don’t make promises I can’t keep. We had a brief slump and knew from decades of winning, the payback was coming. So I sweep last night, a perfect 3-0 and only one game was close.  Get the picks now
