Old Dominion Monarchs

The Old Dominion Monarchs won 25 games a year ago but they lost the game that counted, 55-53 to Middle Tennessee State in the Conference USA title game. That loss kept them out of the NCAA Tournament so the team had to settle for going to the Vegas 16 tournament.

The Monarchs lost Trey Freeman who led the team in scoring last season with 22.1 points per game and they also lost Aaron Bacote who was the second-leading scorer at 13.1 points per game. Old Dominion will look to replace those two players with a number of transfers including B.J. Stith who joins his father and his brother at Old Dominion. Stith spent one season at Virginia and he is expected to start immediately for the Monarchs. Old Dominion also added junior college transfer Alassane Kah.

2016-2017 Old Dominion Monarchs Betting

The Monarchs have some good returning players including Brandan Stith who averaged 10.4 points and 9.7 rebounds last season. He is joined by Denzell Taylor and Zoran Talley up front.

The Monarchs are not going to be as explosive as they were a year ago because they don’t have a standout player but the team should be very balanced and they are very deep. Old Dominion might actually be a better bet this season than they were a year ago when they went just 16-17-1 ATS. ODU should also be a good team to be under the total again this season after going under in 18 of their 34 games last season.

Old Dominion Monarchs Picks

The Monarchs probably won’t win 25 games against this season but whether they make the NCAA Tournament comes down to the CUSA Tournament and the team has enough talent to compete for the title. The addition of B.J. Stith will definitely help and there is no questioning the defense of this team. The key will be getting someone to hit shots from the outside at critical times and if that happens then Old Dominion will have a chance to make the NCAA Tournament in 2016-2017.
