Pick Details

(861) Temple vs. Southern Methodist (862) 3:00 PM | Mon, Jan 11 2021
Sport: NCAAB | Star Rating: 9.0 Evaluation: Win (900) - Final Score TEM 68 at SMU 79
12 TEM (-110) @ bet365

Last time these teams met SMU won a competititve game 79-71 with SMU shooting 51.7% from the field while Temple shot 38%. SMU is 1-4 ATS in the last four at home versus a team with a losing road record. This game will be competitive like the last one however I don't see SMU hitting 51% from the field again here and I see Temple once again controlling the boards.  The number in this has come down from +13 to +12 and i have it capped at +9.5 therefore I'm all over Temple plus the points in this game. Take Temple with CONFIDENCE!


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
