College Hoops Preview: Saints vs. Panthers (Dec. 17)

NCAA Hoops Siena @ Pittsburgh

The Siena Saints travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Panthers in a game that figures to be a blow-out. Sports betting fans have to respect how the Pitts Panthers haven’t been involved in a game where they haven’t beaten their opponent by less than 13 points. College basketball betting fans would think that a stat like that would make the Panthers one of the best online betting options in college basketball right now. Pitt is only 3-1-1 against the BetUS online betting spread. Why? Because in a few of their games an against the spread line wasn’t offered. I mean, would any NCAAB betting odds maker offer an online betting line against Belmont or Frederickson? The lack of any real competition on Pitt’s schedule so far means that they might be slightly overrated.

Siena isn’t a bad team. They are 2-3-1 against the BetUS online wagering spread but they’ve played some tough teams like Tennessee, who beat them by 14 points, and Villanova who beat them by 12. Both of those teams are much better than anything Pitt has faced this season. Siena shouldn’t beat Pittsburgh but against the BetUS online betting spread, they could make things interesting.

Here are the BetUS online sportsbook betting odds for this game.

Siena Saints + 18 – 110
Pittsburgh Panthers – 18 – 110

Here are a few online wagering trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game.

The Siena Saints are 6 and 2 against the spread in their last 8 games versus an opponent from the Big East.
The Siena Saints are 33 and 16 against the spread in their last 49 games on the road.
The Pittsburgh Panthers are 9-4-1 against the spread in their last 14 non-conference games.
The Pittsburgh Panthers are 7-2-1 against the spread in their last 10 games overall.

Siena isn’t nearly as good of a team as Pittsburgh but to ask the Panthers, who have been scoring roughly 80 points against bad teams, to beat a team as experienced as the Saints by more than 18 is asking a lot.

The Panthers’ game is based on defensive pressure. Usually that would signal a win against the BetUS online basketball betting spread, but in this case it could signal that the Siena Saints stay in this game longer than some online sportsbook betting fans think.

The Saints will take their time getting off a good shot. Pitt can play defense and they will beat Siena but the Saints have enough on the offensive end, and on the defensive end, to keep this close.

Siena vs. Pitt Prediction

18 points are just way too many to give up in this game. I’m going with Siena at + 18 to beat the BetUS online sportsbook betting spread.
