Tom Stryker’s Free Basketball Play February 28th


#810 HOUSTON (-18) over S Florida at 4 PM EST
Cougars head coach Kelvin Sampson has his team firing on all cylinders right now. Houston has four wins in its last five games and those victories came by margins of 66, 17, 38 and 24 points respectively. That’s an average win of 36.3 points per game! With UH looking up at Wichita State in the AAC standings and looking back at Memphis right on its tail, Coach Sampson’s kids will take care of business in this contest.

Since the start of the 2017-18 season, Houston has been one of college basketball’s elite programs churning out an amazing 102-23 SU and 66-44-1 ATS record. In this role locked up against a conference foe, the Cougars improve to a sensational 53-13 SU and 41-24-1 ATS including a money-making 27-4 SU and 23-8 ATS provided they check in off the comforts of a home game. Lastly, when playing at home, UH has ripped off a stunning 23-0 SU and 15-6 ATS record in its last 23 tries and it has won those battles by an average of 20.8 points per game.

Off the ugly 18-point SU and ATS home loss to Temple on Wednesday, this trip to Houston will be a difficult one for South Florida. According to the Team Stryker College Basketball Database, the Bulls hold a woeful 31-94 SU and 43-68-6 ATS mark when checking in off a straight up loss provided their opponent arrives with steam off a double-digit straight up victory. In this spot fighting with revenge of any kind, USF crashes to a disturbing 10-55 SU and 18-42-5 ATS including 5-42 SU and 11-34-2 ATS if its opponent played in the comforts of home last.

The Bulls haven’t beaten a ranked opponent since 2012 and head coach Brian Gregory’s kids aren’t going to knock one off here either. Take Houston. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
