College Basketball Picks for Saturday 12/19/20

**Gonzaga -4.5 vs Iowa: What a way to kick off the College basketball slate. Iowa is a monster, but, as good as their underlying numbers are in their first 4 games, they are artificially pumped up by 2 games vs directional schools (N Illinois and Western Illinois). Gonzaga is no stranger to hopping on charter flights out of Spokane to travel and … [Read more...]

College Basketball Picks for Friday 12/18/20

Monmouth +1.5 vs St.Peters: St. Peters has looked good vs the likes of Niagara and Stony Brook, but I believe Monmouth is better than both of those teams. Monmouth can score and they looked good in their only game so far, a loss to Hofstra, where the Pride shot lights out. St. Peters' underlying numbers are not headed in the right direction and I … [Read more...]

College Basketball Play for Thursday 12/17/20

Wyoming -10.5 vs Neb Omaha: I’ve been fading Nebraska Omaha in this early part of the season and will continue to here, as this is not a good matchup for the Mavericks. Wyoming is rested and has shown great improvement while riding the solid play of their offense-minded guards Marcus Williams and Hunter Maldonado. This line opened Wyoming -7.5 so … [Read more...]

College Basketball Selections for Wednesday 12/16/20

Vanderbilt +6.5 vs Richmond: This spread is a tad higher than it should be in my opinion. Richmond has faced tougher so far, but fell flat on their face away from home against a very good West Virginia team. Vanderbilt's early underlying numbers are better and I like them at home in this situation. Against unranked teams, Vandy usually handles … [Read more...]

College Basketball Selections for Tuesday 12/15/20

**Florida Atlantic -4.5 at Stetson: Florida Atlantic can get after it defensively and their athleticism will make for a pesky D vs a Stetson team that does not have much firepower with the ball. Stetson has covered only 3 of its last 9 games and this is not a good match up for them in my opinion. Lay the points with the road favorite … [Read more...]

College Basketball Plays for Monday December 14

**Rutgers +2.5 at Maryland: When it comes to a solid defense taking on a solid offense, I tend to lean to the defense and that's what we have here. Maryland's first test against a good defense did not go well as they lost by double digits to Clemson. I like Rutgers on the boards as well. There's a reason the point spread is hovering around only 2 … [Read more...]

College Plays for Sunday 12/13/20

Wright State +1.5 at Bowling Green: Wright State steps up in these inter-state rivalry games and their underlying numbers are superior to Bowling Green's, who are 1-3 ATS in the early going. Richmond +4.5 FIRST HALF at West Virginia: I have these teams near even so the spread seems a bit off to me. Richmond has been better in the turnover … [Read more...]

College Basketball Plays for 12/12/20

**Syracuse -2.5 at Boston College: Boston College Coach Jim Christian wasn't able to figure out the Syracuse zone defense in both match ups last season as the Orangemen won both games by double digits. BC has played a tough schedule thus far and they get their first home game here, however underlying numbers just haven't been there for the Eagles … [Read more...]

College Basketball Plays for Friday 12/11/20

**Kansas -24 vs Neb Omaha: Kansas has faced a couple of strong opponents early on and won both of those games by small margins. Jayhawks underlying numbers have gotten better in every game this season showing improvement and a willingness to be coached. Strong assist and turnover numbers stand out vs a Nebraska Omaha team that is near the basement … [Read more...]

College Basketball Plays for 12/10/20

**South Dakota -3 at North Dakota: In a battle of winless teams, South Dakota Guard Stanley Umude is the most experienced, and arguably the best, player on the floor tonight. He's scored in double digits in all 3 games this year vs the likes of Colorado, Nebraska, and Drake. North Dakota meanwhile has faced the likes of Miami of Ohio and recently … [Read more...]
