    Default UNCW +9.5 vs Tennessee O/U 152

    My first thought was UNCW but they do lack depth going in the back to back. Will probably be a pretty close one.

    Default UNCW +9.5 vs Tennessee O/U 152

    Yikes, that's a lot of points for a UNCW team that played well in its first game. I wouldn't touch this one at all. :shock:
    It pains me to say it, but I'd have to make GMU my favorite going into next season.

    Keep in mind that the Vols were a far improved team next year and I believe has some pretty highly touted recruits coming in.

    This Bruce Pearl team is nothing like the UT team of even 2 years ago.

    It's a home game for UT, anywhere in this state is. Still at 10.5, I'll take the Seahawks w/the points. Heck, I may even try and make the game if tix are resonable.

    If you feel that's a lot of points, then you should bet on the Seahawks! UNCW matches up nicely with Bruce Pearl's inexperienced Tennessee squad that got outplayed in the NCAA Tournament last year. Without Major Wingate AND after losing CJ Watson to graduation, Chris Lofton is their primary weapon, and they lack size underneath. That benefits UNCW. After all, how will they have an answer to Vlad and Todd inside when they also have to guard Montez Downey and Daniel Fountain on the perimeter?

    Nation, that's just it. It does seem like a lot of points. But, it also makes you wonder if Vegas knows something and they are trying to sucker a bettor to put the money on UNCW. I'm with Tom, don't touch this game.
    Of course, this is just my opinion, I could be wrong.

    Coach, the thing is I always feel that big name schools get a couple extra points... the casino's know if its a good line, the money will come in on the big name school. It's the reason why you can dominate the NCAA tourney the first round, because the 1-16 game, the 1 seed is like 3-13 against the spread the last 4 years... I think that may be why it seems like a bigger line then the 6-7 i think it should be...

    Take the 'Hawks and run.

    Every year in November the mids are underrated against phonies like Tennessee. They paid for a Vegas trip for the NCAA's last year for me.

    Unless UNCW is throwing the game, Vegas doesn't "know something" that makes this spread a big one. The odds are set based on betting trends, not "which team is stronger". By that token, people are more likely to bet on a known team, Tennessee, playing in NASHVILLE, over the more unknown, UNCW. Plus, since the game against Belmont was JUST last night, thats too quick of a turnaround to have a major effect on which way the bettors go.

    If you are a gambling man, bet on UNCW. Based on how they played last night and how the matchups look (Tennessee inexperienced and lacking in post men, run a 3-guard set much like UNCW), I can't see the Seahawks losing by 10.
