Sweat Barometer Standings in College Basketball and NBA 2013

Here is a Margin of Cover (MOC) breakdown for NBA and college basketball. Renamed “sweat barometer” in Chad Millman of ESPN’s column, MOC is similar to scoring margin, but it is measured by how much a team covers or fails to cover the point spread.

Many sports handicappers believe MOC is invaluable in isolating under and overvalued teams.

As of: entering January 29 action.

Minimum number of lined games: 10.

Here are the top teams to bet on according to their MOC

Team                          ATS Record                          Margin of Cover

Miami (FL)                 12-3                                        +8.6

Florida                        11-4                                        +7.4
