College Basketball Betting Free Play: Albany Great Danes at Memphis Tigers

Albany +1 at Mmephis O/U 140.5
Recommendation: Albany

There is a very good reason the Memphis Tigers are only near a pick em in this contest tonight at home against the Albany Great Danes who play out of the America East conference. Albany simply has the more talented and experienced squad. The Great Danes are 10-1 this season including 4-1 on the highway and they return much of the squad that was narrowly defeated by Vermont in last year’s America East conference tournament title game. The team is led by a tremendously talented and experienced backcourt of Joe Cremo and David Nichols who both combine to average over 34 points scored per game. Cremo has an over 50% FG shooting percentage including a sensational 26-of-47 shooting from the perimeter. The team also has a pair of senior forwards in Travis Charles averaging 14.7 points per game and Greig Stire who contributes over 7 points and rebounds per game for Albany. Albany also makes their free throws which is so important in this kind of closely contested game as the Great Danes shoot 75.4% from the FT line as a team. Memphis was able to notch a pair of decent home wins against Northern Kentucky and Mercer (the latter victory in OT) but both games were flawed wins. NKU went ice cold in the second half when they played Memphis and that allowed the Tigers to claw their way back and eventually win that game. In the OT win against Mercer, Memphis only connected on 34% shooting from the field but were the beneficiaries of a ton of trips to the foul line where the Tigers made 30-of-34 free throw attempts at an 88% clip in that game. That has to be considered a bit of an anomaly with the Tigers for the entire season connecting on just 68% from the free throw line. It’s not easy to trust Memphis in this spot either as on deck for the Tigers is a much anticipated trip to New York City this weekend to face the Louisville Cardinals making this a bit of a tricky spot for the home team. For Albany, this is a great chance to notch a solid road win outside of conference and I think the Great Danes are capable of taking advantage of this opportunity and will find a way to win this game on the highway against Memphis.
