Dartmouth Betting Notes

The Big Green comes in off a 65-62 home loss to Boston University getting the push as a three-point home dog. The defeat was the fourth straight for Dartmouth, but they have been in each game of the last three, losing two games in regulation each by three points to BU and QUIN, and falling in overtime by 8 to FGCU.

Stanford Betting Notes

The Cardinal are fresh off a 72-69 win over the Ducks as a +1 home favorite. Their win was their fourth in the last six games, but only the second spread cover over that stretch (2-3-1 ATS). The 141 combined points scored sent over bettors to the window for the third straight Stanford game and the 72 points put up on the board was the sixth time in the last seven matches that the Cardinal have scored over 70 points.

How’s the Public Betting?

The public is decidedly on Stanford at -14 with 70% of the tickets landing on that side of the line. The total as is the norm Joe Public has 63% of their tickets on the Over.

The Cardinal has averaged just 69.9 points per game this campaign on 44.3 FG shooting and have allowed opponents 70 PPG and a 45.6 FG%. Those numbers are skewed though from their first two games of the season where they scored 100 points 35 of 112 shooting while allowing 155 points on 59 of 111.

Dartmouth vs. Stanford History

These two clubs have met on just two occasions since 2004 with the latest coming on Dec 12, 2015 so really should have zero impact on the handicap. For what it’s worth, Stanford took both games winning 64-50 in the last meeting as a 12-point favorite and getting the victory but not the money in a 71-54 game as a 26.5 point fav.

Team Betting Trends

Stanford Cardinal

  • Stanford is 2-5 ATS in its last 7 games at home
  • Stanford is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games at home

Dartmouth Big Green

  • Dartmouth is 5-13 SU in its last 18 games on the road

Over/Under Pick

Dartmouth’s weakness offensively is rebounding but they shoot well from three-point land (36.4%) and have hit double digits in four of their last five games. If they can have any kind of success, they should score in the 60’s a number they have hit in regulation in six of their last seven matches. Stanford as noted above has hit in the 70’s in all of one of their last seven and that came against the No. 3 scoring defense of Baylor. The Cardinal have seven players who can put up good numbers eliminating the need for a star player to have a big game to run the score up.
