After consuming a massive 147-game slate on Saturday, college basketball fans may be inclined to take a day off from wagering.

That would be a mistake.

Sunday’s light 17-game slate still provides sneaky value for the savvy college hoops bettor.

Today we preview Connecticut at Memphis and Stanford visiting Oregon.


Betting Odds: Connecticut Huskies at Memphis Tigers

  • Spread: Memphis -6.5
  • Over/Under: 158
  • Time: 2 p.m. ET
  • TV: CBSSN

Connecticut (13-10) is 4-6 in the AAC and has lost its last eight games away from Storrs. Within the conference, the Huskies are 0-5 on the road. They are just 9-10 overall against-the-spread (ATS), including 2-6 on the road.

Memphis (13-10) has been especially tough at home with wins over Wichita State, SMU and UCF. The Tigers are 11-2 straight-up and 9-5-1 ATS at home.

Connecticut has the fourth-best offense in AAC play but is a very different team on the road. In their four conference wins, the Huskies are shooting 50.4% (115-of-228) from the field. Compare that to just 41% (125-of-302) in their five conference losses.

In addition, Connecticut will be without its leading scorer, Jalen Adams (17.1 PPG), who sprained his knee in Wednesday’s loss at Temple. Adams is shooting 37% from the 3-point line and is the team’s best free throw shooter at 84.7%.
