NCAA Betting Odds Board Shows St. John’s Climb in Position after Solid Start

The St. John’s Red Storm will face their toughest test of the young betting season this Thursday as they tip off against the No. 16-ranked Arizona Wildcats at the 2K Sports Classic in New York.

With what is shaping up to be a competitive season in the Big East fast approaching, the heavyweight matchup will serve as a true test of the team’s mettle.

Though the Red Storm are distant National Championship contenders at best, they remain an intriguing choice on the college basketball betting odds board as a potential darkhorse power in the Big East.

They may not have the firepower of Connecticut or Louisville, but they have benefited early on from the rounded contributions of their first-year players.

With freshmen Moe Harkless and D’Angelo Harrison serving as valuable options on offense, and with first-year upperclassmen God’s gift Achiuwa and Nurideen Lindsey thriving in their first years in uniform, the Red Storm have emerged as an interesting, albeit unconventional, threat.

Will it be enough to thwart Kyle Fogg and the Wildcats? The jury is still out. Though both St. John’s and Arizona approach the game with unbeaten 3-0 records, the Wildcats have done so with the sort of blue chip roster that has made them a perennial contender.

Will we see the Red Storm continue to rise over the course of the season? Or is the ceiling pretty much set on their season?
