4* NCAAB ABSOLUTE SMASH
Ohio vs. Northern Iowa,
12/20/2011 20:00 EDT,
Score: 76 - 59
Point Spread: -5½/-110 Northern Iowa
The public is jumping all over Ohio(9-1) to cover this spread against UNI (10-1). I think that's exactly what the oddsmakers want, as the Panthers should be able to cover this spread. UNI is a perfect 6-0 at home this season, and I expect them to really be motivated against a team like Ohio with such a strong overall record.
Ohio is definitely getting a lot of respect with three straight wins by 15-points or more, but UNI has won nine in a row, including a 36-point win over Loras yesterday. This all sets up a very profitable system. Teams that have won three straight by 15+, playing against a team who won their last game by 20+ are just 6-26 ATS since 1997! BET UNI -5.5!
