College Basketball Gambling – Mississippi State Bulldogs Look to Take Bite Out of Zips
Written by North Shore Sports, INC
Hold onto your hats kids, because the college basketball gambling season is finally here, and there’s no better place to get in on the action than Bookmaker Sportsbook! Bookmaker is home to the latest and greatest lines and totals for every game this season, including the 2K Sports Coaches vs. Cancer Classic contest featuring Mississippi State and Akron.
From the SEC to the Mid American Conference and everywhere in between, Bookmaker Sportsbook has you covered with the most college basketball gambling options for Wednesday, November 9th, and everyday throughout the season, including the second game of the 2K Sports Coaches vs. Cancer Classic as Mississippi State hosts Akron in Starkville. ESPNU will have the broadcast live from Humphrey Coliseum starting at 7:00 ET.
The 2011 season got started a bit early for the Mississippi State Bulldogs, who for the first time, played an exhibition game prior to Halloween. Luckily for Rick Stansbury’s boys, the Bulldogs had no trouble taking care of Florida Tech 97-63 on Saturday. Though Mississippi State only returns two starters from last year’s 17-14 squad – guard Dee Bost and post Renardo Sidney – the Bulldogs have plenty of new talent on the floor which helped produce three double-doubles in their exhibition opener.
Arnett Moultrie had 19 points and 11 rebounds while Sidney tallied 11 points and 11 rebounds and Wendell Lewis added 14 points and 11 rebounds in just 21 minutes off of the bench. “We have the pieces, it is just a matter of putting everything together,” Stansbury said. “In the second half, we defended better and really wore them down. The offensive execution was good for a first game. Obviously, we have a long way to go. However, we did a lot of things well today and that is very encouraging.” Mississippi State will host Pikeville in its second exhibition contest on Friday before hosting Eastern Kentucky on Monday and Akron Wednesday.
Though Mississippi State finished 17-14 last season, the Bulldogs struggled against the college basketball gambling odds with a 9-15-3 ATS finish. Entering Monday’s contest against Eastern Kentucky, Mississippi State is also 1-12 ATS in its last 13 non-conference tussles.
Those who have the Akron Zips on their schedule should take notice: this is not your ordinary mid-major program. The Zips have played in the Mid American Conference Tournament championship game in each of the past five seasons and have advanced to the Big Dance twice in the past three seasons. Last year, Akron upended top seeded Kent State in overtime to win the MAC tourney before losing to Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
However, this season, Akron will be faced with the task of rebuilding after losing their starting back court to graduation. The Zips have welcomed six new players to the team this year and head coach Keith Dambrot is well aware of the question marks surrounding his team. “One thing we don’t have is as much experience,” Dambrot said. “Our [graduated] seniors played a lot of big games.” Akron will desperately need someone to step up and lead the team this season; look for its front court to provide the most firepower.
Akron has won at least 23 games in each of the past five seasons and finished its 2010-11 campaign with a 23-13 record while playing 19-13-1 against the closing college basketball gambling lines. Akron is 5-2 ATS in its last seven non-conference games and 16-7-1 ATS in its last 24 Wednesday contests.
