On Friday, the 2017-18 college basketball season tips. With it comes early season tournaments. It’s only November but it feels like March with several high-profile games scheduled. In the season’s first week we get No. 1 Duke vs No. 2 Michigan State and No. 4 Kansas vs. No. 5 Kentucky.
Many of these games will be part of in-season tournaments played on neutral courts. The baskets ten feet in every gym but not all arenas are created equally.
In 2011, North Carolina and Michigan State played the first college basketball game on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. The dimensions of the court might have been the same but there was nothing familiar about playing hoops on a warship. The Tar Heels beat the Spartans 67-55 and the game easily went Under the total of 135.
This is an extreme example but teams struggle to score in neutral site games, whether on top of a floating air base or in a tropical location for the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, the Paradise Jam or Maui Invitational.
Recreational bettors like cheering for points, which has made Unders historically profitable. Here is how Unders have performed in games played on a neutral court since 2005.
