Big West Tournament Betting – 49ers Should Have No Problem Earning Automatic Bid

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 2:16:02 AM

Leaving a shot at the NCAA national title tournament to chance is not something any program wants, but that will be the scenario for all but one team from the Big West following this week’s conference title tournament. For the winner, a chance to prove their merit amongst the best in the country when the online March Madness betting begins. The loser, a very likely chance that they won’t get an invitation to the dance. Parity ruled most of  the Big West conference, but there was a major disparity at the top where the Long Beach State 49ers finished with four wins more than second place Cal Poly. Now, Casper Ware and company will look to parlay that finish into an automatic berth as play gets underway at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California this Wednesday.

The 49ers are the undoubted favorites to win this year’s tournament, as the only team from the Big West that registered 20 wins this online sports betting season. Ware has been the superstar that the team has turned to in the clutch, with a team-high 16.9 points per game and an average of 4.7 assists. T.J. Robinson completes the one-two inside-outside tandem that makes a true contender in college hoops. Robinson has averaged an incredible 10.1 rebounds per game. Long Beach State finished the season with nine straight wins, which ironically came on the heels of consecutive road losses in mid-January. It’s ironic because both of those losses came in Orange County, where this year’s conference tournament is being played, with defeats at the hands of Fullerton and UC Irvine two of three losses the team suffered while going 0-for-3 in the O.C. The 49ers should have no problem earning at least a couple of wins at the Honda to open the title tournament, and it’s hard to imagine they will be slowed in their pursuit of the Big West title.

Regular season runners up Cal Poly are the one team that are considered to have a legitimate shot at knocking off Long Beach State, even despite that they lost both of their regular season games against the 49ers this year. The Mustangs did close the gap from a 16-point home loss to Long Beach State in late December, to just six-points in a road loss a couple of weeks ago, so there is potential, but it is unlikely that the 49ers won’t press them and push them out of their comfort zone in a potential sportsbook promo matchup.

Cal State and Pacific finished third and fourth in the Big West in the regular season, but the drop-off from the top-two is significant enough to predict that it will be a 49ers-Mustangs final. Despite the efforts of Sam Willard, the Tigers just couldn’t do enough to generate any legitimate momentum this season, while the Matadors prevailed in the season finale against Pacific just to secure the No. 3 seed in the tournament by a single game.
