Although Madison Square Garden is home for the Knicks and Rangers and various other events, there's been plenty of college basketball played at the Mecca over the years.

This is the first year in its history that the Final Four of the NIT Tournament will not be played at MSG. The Garden has also played host to the Champions Classic — a showcase that involves the top college basketball teams in the country at the beginning of the season– over the years, as well as various St. John's games throughout the season and the Big East Tournament every year.

Thus, there is a pretty significant sample size for college hoops at MSG. And if there is one thing that's rang true, Madison Square Garden unders have been profitable for bettors.

Since 2007, unders are 187-135-6 (57.1%) at Madison Square Garden. That is an 11.6% return on investment. This means if a $100 bettor bet the under in every game since 2007, that bettor would be up $3,802.

Furthermore, unders have been even more profitable in recent years. Unders are 44-24-1 (64.7%) at the Garden since the 2019-20 season and went 14-5 (73.7%) this season.

Although there is no distinct correlation or reasoning, depth perception can be difficult for shooters and Madison Square Garden could just be a difficult place to make shots.
