Just who are these people?

VIP College Basketball's Dirty Dozen | The worst College Basketball teams against the spread coupled with bonehead decisions.
A slight change of philosophy. We’re acknowledging “have not” programs that suddenly became haves.
Arizona State is 11-0 straight up and 9-2 against the spread. The Sun Devils weren’t close to being that good when James Harden was there. As for the other four in the nation’s top 5 against the spread, who released them from witness protection?
Portland State is 9-0 ATS and No. 1 among the 320 Division I basketball programs. Southern Utah at 8-1 is third behind ASU. South Alabama is fourth at 7-1 and South Dakota fifth at 8-2-1. We didn’t think there were any basketball courts in South Dakota.
So for the bettor who wants to cut to the chase and not waste valuable time studying trends, past opponents and conference affiliations, the ATS record of this starting five together is 41-6-1. Just blindly bet on these teams – especially Saturdays when most everyone is in action. You won’t be disappointed too often.
