Betting College Basketball: Hump Day (Under)Dogs


It is Wednesday and if you are a regular reader here at, you know what that means, it is time for the dogs to eat, underdogs that are in college basketball.

Once again I have a pair of Hump Day pooches for college basketball picks that I am convinced they will cover the spread. My season record in this specific area is 12-6, 66.6 percent and no, I will not be taking an Atlantic 10 team for a fourth straight week, though one was on the shortlist. Instead, I will adventure into the ACC and Big Ten against the college basketball odds.

Winless Illinois Struggles Again

Indiana (12-8, 10-8-2 ATS) has suffered a vast array of injuries, yet first-year coach Archie Miller has kept the team together. With the Big Ten a more watered down league this season, the Hoosiers are doing better than anticipated, being in 5th place with a 5-3 record.

Brad Underwood is another new head coach in the Big Ten and though this is his proclaimed “dream job” he has come into a less than dreamy situation. The previous regime did not recruit well and Illinois (10-11,  8-9-1 ATS) is suffering because of it, being winless in conference play at 0-8 (4-4 ATS). All the losing seems to have affected the team and their defense is being shredded for 51.5 percent shooting in last six contests.
