Line moved from UAB -1.5 @ Temple to UAB -8. Then UAB won by 28. Weird bets set off alarms.

With legal betting all over and NIL cash being spread around wildly some places I've wondered for a while if kids who are not getting the big NIL checks would be more accessible by some of the shady elements around gambling.

I've had concerns about this as well. Legalized gambling, and especially sports betting, is so pervasive now and how could thousands of college basketball games each season be monitored or investigated?

Apparently Temple has a few head scratchers and are on the watch list to boot. Crazy the line moved that much, so something definitely appears to be up. I think this is the tip of the iceberg and so much gambling is going to lead to more of this.

LOL there MUST be an anti-NIL angle!

The players are on the take.

They really need to be paid so that they don't do unethical things like this.

Doing my duty to point out garbage takes. Hoping it makes you better!

Sadly, I think “altered” games will become all-too commonplace. Every oddball play, call, turn of events, will cast doubt.

Professional/college sports aren’t nearly as fun anymore

This is inevitable when the ethos of an activity formerly considered a sport becomes “get paid.”

Games like the 41 point swing in a little over 20 minutes of play of the Memphis UAB game last week can make one wonder.

RE: OT: point spread fixing investigation at Temple
I've seen some reporting that they may think the point shaving is showing up in games via some inexplicable rebounding statistical anomalies. In that UAB Temple game it was 41-19 with a 10-1 offensive rebounding edge. Not sure if that is normal for those teams or not.

Not sure if it's legit but it would be a smart way if you were on the take. Way easier to hide from casual viewing than throwing the ball away, dribbling off your foot, or missing the rim on purpose.

College hoops has had point shaving scandals going back to the early '50s with CCNY, Boston College in the '70s, Arizona St. in the '90s.
