College Basketball Betting Power Rankings – January 8

Team Trend
San Diego State Aztecs 9-1 UNDER in last 10

Harvard Crimson 7-1 ATS in last 8
Louisville Cardinals 6-1 OVER in last 7
Ohio State Buckeyes 4-0 ATS in last 4 

1) San Diego State Aztecs

Trend: 9-1 UNDER

Next Game: vs. Boise State – January 8 | 11:05 PM ET

The Aztecs began this week with a surprising 61-57 win against Kansas on the road. Coming into Allen Fieldhouse, where the Jayhawks have won 68 straight times against non-conference teams,  the  Aztecs were not rattled one bit. Instead, they put the pressure on the hosts by employing a stingy defense that forced the Jayhawks to shoot just 29.8% from the field. The Aztecs’ scoring defense (56.5 PPG allowed per game) is No. 6 in the nation, and worked to near perfection against the Jayhawks. Expect other opponents to find it extra hard to score against the Aztecs in their upcoming games.

2) Creighton Bluejays

Trend: 8-0 ATS in last 8

Next Game: vs. Xavier Musketeers – January 12 | 3:00 PM ET

The Bluejays kept their clean conference record intact after thumping DePaul Tuesday night, 81-62. Not only that, Creighton also stretched their ATS success to eight straight games by erasing the 8.5-point spread as underdogs. The Bluejays once again flashed their proficiency from beyond the arc, dropping 11 three-pointers on the Blue Demons. Creighton is the nation’s No. 1 team in three-point shooting with an average of 11.4 treys per game. [sc:NCAAB240banner ]

3) Harvard Crimson

Trend: 7-1 ATS

Next Game: @ Connecticut Huskies – January 8 | 7:00 PM ET

The boys from the Ivy League Conference aren’t just happy to be winning games straight up – they want to crush their opponents. Harvard is near perfect this season against the spread with a 7-1 ATS record so far.

4) Louisville Cardinals

Trend: 6-1 OVER in last 7

Next Game: vs. Memphis Tigers – January 9 | 7:00 PM ET

Louisville didn’t look like the defending national champions against the Scarlet Knights, but came away with an 83-76 win, nonetheless. The Cardinals did damage in that game on the charity line, where they made a living by knocking down 41 of 46 attempts. The Totals line for that game was 145, which the game easily surpassed with a 159 mark. It was the sixth time in seven games that the Cardinals have gone Over.

5) Ohio State Buckeyes

Trend: 4-0 ATS in last 4 games

Next Game: vs. Iowa Hawkeyes – January 12 | 1:30 PM ET

Thad Matta, Ohio State Buckeyes, NCAAB

In the battle of two unbeaten Big Ten teams, the Buckeyes suffered the same fate as their football counterparts did when they dropped a sorry overtime loss to Michigan State, 72-88. But chin up Buckeyes fans. Despite the loss, the Buckeyes showed they could hang around with the big boys (the Spartans are No. 5). Prior to the game, Ohio State had only faced one Top 25 team in No. 17 Marquette (W 52-35). It could have been a statement win for the Buckeyes, but the loss will only spur hopes for a big bounce-back from Thad Matta’s crew.
