College football may be winding down, but college football is gearing up. Don’t worry if you haven’t kept pace with all of the happenings in the NCAAB, I have a trio of must bet New Year games.
College Basketball ATS Analysis New Year’s Week
Notre Dame at #10 Virginia Tech
When: Tuesday, Jan. 1 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Cassell Coliseum, Blacksburg, VA
Analysis: Two of the better teams in the ridiculous ACC clash on Jan. 1, 2019 when Notre Dame heads to Blacksburg to take on the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Fighting Irish are on a 4-game winning streak after 2 straight losses.
Against the spread, Notre Dame is 6-7. They’re a bad 4-6 ATS at home while they’ve gone 1-0 against the spread in their lone road game that offered odds when losing 62-65 to UCLA as a +4.5 dog.
Virginia Tech is 11-1 straight up and a dominating 8-3 against the spread. The Hokies are a fantastic 4-2 ATS at home. No matter the odds, VA Tech should cover. They’re for real, holding opponents to 56.6 points per.
#13 Texas Tech at West Virginia
When: Wednesday, Jan. 2 at 7:00 pm ET
Where: WVU Coliseum, Morgantown, WV
TV: ESPN U
Analysis: Texas Tech takes on Bob Huggins’ West Virginia Mountaineers squad in Morgantown on Jan. 2. The Red Raiders have lost only a single game, 58-69 to the Duke Blue Devils. But, Texas Tech’s been terrible against the spread.
They’re 5-7 overall. They head to West Virginia on a 2-game ATS losing streak. That looks bad, but the Mountaineers not only already have 4 straight up losses on the season, they’ve gone 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4.
West Virginia’s got a 2-3-1 ATS record at home. They’ll be favored here. Because the Mountaineers should have trouble dealing with the Red Raiders suffocating defense, Texas Tech’s the team to back.
#7 Michigan State at #11 Ohio State
When: Saturday, Jan. 5 at 12:00 pm ET
Where: Value City Arena, Columbus, OH
Analysis: Michigan State’s 11-1 while Ohio State is 12-1 heading into their Big Ten throw down on Saturday, Jan. 5. The Spartans are on a 6-game winning streak. They’ve gone 9-4 ATS this season.
MSU’s also gone 8-2 ATS in their last 10. They’re hot in every way imaginable while Ohio State is only 7-6 ATS overall and 3-6 against the spread in home games this season. Back Michigan State because there’s no way they go off the favorites on Jan. 5.
