This week we will look at three conferences, who despite having more brand names, at least as a mid-major in college basketball, are likely to only receive one bid per league. Whether that is fair, that’s an argument that could go on for hours, but rest assured, any of these bubble teams we will talk about would have a near or better than a 50-50 chance to defeat any of the last four in teams that will probably come from major conferences.

Betting Look at t Conference USA Bubble –

Most assume and probably rightly so Old Dominion will win the regular season title in C-USA action and hopefully for their sake if true, the conference tournament. While anything is possible, we cannot overlook one C-USA club in particular.

North Texas –  The Mean Green is 19-4 this season and is tied with ODU and UTSA in losses with three in conference play. They are a unknown quantity which is why they are not receiving any street cred nationally. No doubt their nonconference slate is not going to help them, yet, North Texas is 13th in fewest points allowed at 62.2 PG and hold teams to 40.6% shooting. While their 7-11-2 ATS record is not good, that has mostly come at home where they are 2-7-1 ATS, despite winning by 14.3 PPG. A more deserving snapshot is 5-1 and 4-1-1 ATS mark as a road favorite. The Mean Green will probably have to win the C-USA tourney to get, which might be too bad.
