The Saint Louis Billikens are dangerous underdogs Tuesday

Saint Louis has won its first five games of the 2013-14 campaign, including a 74-47 victory over the Bowling Green Falcons as 19.5-point home favorites last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total of 160.  The Billikens have six players averaging 7.0 points per game or more, with senior forward Dwayne Evans leading the way at 13.6, which is important to consider when making your college basketball predictions Tuesday night.  Saint Louis is 10-4 SU and 9-4-1 ATS on a neutral floor the last two-plus seasons, with no clear edge in terms of the betting total (7-7 Over/Under).

The Billikens were picked to finish second in the Atlantic 10 Conference during the preseason, as they attempt to reach the NCAA Tournament for a third consecutive season.  Saint Louis’ senior class has the chance to go down as the winningest class in school history, with the group needing to post 24 victories this season.  The program has had success in in-season tournaments the past two years, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college basketball odds page.

Wisconsin is looking to open a season with seven consecutive wins for the first time since 1993-94, as it looks to continue its hot shooting from the field, averaging 80.2 points per game.  The Badgers lead the Big Ten Conference in shooting 49.4 percent from the floor and 45.2 percent from 3-point range.  Four different players have led the squad in scoring through six games, which has made it possible to be the only one in the Big Ten with five players averaging in double figures.  Wisconsin is 8-5 SUATS in tournament games since the 2011-12 campaign.

The Badgers have played in a non-conference holiday tournament eight times in Bo Ryan’s first 12 seasons in Madison—compiling a 14-7 record in that situation.  Wisconsin will be playing just its second regular season game outside of United States territory in this affair.  These two teams have split the first four meetings against each other.

Sports bettors will likely back the Billikens due to their 21-8-1 ATS mark in their last 30 games versus teams with a winning record.
