College Basketball Picks for 1/8/21

**Louisiana Monroe +5.5 vs UT Arlington: Louisiana Monroe has shown me enough playing at home to jump on them as a multi-bucket home dog here. Underlying defensive efficiency numbers favor L-Monroe and several of UT Arlington's key stats drop when the Roadrunners play on the road. L-Monroe has a positive ATS record vs these kind of defenses and … [Read more...]

College Basketball Plays for 1/7/21

**(734) SMU -5.5 at Cincinnati: Cincy’s visit to SMU does not come at a good time as the Bearcats are on a 5-game losing streak. Cincinnati was favored in four of the aforementioned five straight up losses, so they have been burning money. SMU is 5-2 (71.4%) ATS this season and 4-1 ATS when favored. SMU’s Kendrick Davis should have himself a … [Read more...]

**Providence +4.5 vs Creighton: Creighton is 37% ATS this season as favorites. Their offense is elite but Xavier may have found some weaknesses as the Blue Jays scored a season low 66 points. Providence on the other hand held Butler to 55 points a few days back. The Friars are solid coming off a straight up win sporting a 6-2 ATS record so far this … [Read more...]

College Basketball Picks for 1/1/21

Cleveland State -3.5 at Indiana-Purdue: Cleveland State's underlying assist and turnover numbers are headed in the right direction. Their offensive output is strong. Very small sample size for Indiana-Purdue, but regardless, Cleveland State is better and is improving. Lay the points here. Niagara -1.5 at Marist: After a shaky start, Niagara has … [Read more...]

College Basketball Picks for 12/29/20

**Iona -7 vs Towson State: Iona is a on a 3-game winning streak ATS and straight up. They are head and shoulders above Towson State when looking at underlying stats and I don't see anyone on the Towson side of the defense that will be able to stop Gaels guard Isaiah, who is flourishing under Rick Patino. Take the home favorite here. **Santa … [Read more...]

College Basketball Pick for 12/28/20

**Colorado +2.5 at Arizona: Colorado is a strong 5-2 ATS this season and their underlying numbers play both at home and on the road so I won't hesitate to side with them here. Arizona has had success at home but all have been vs. below average mid majors like UTEP, N. Arizona, and Grambling. And still, their key stats are below Colorado's. Take the … [Read more...]

College Basketball Picks for 12/25/20

**Wisconsin -1 at Michigan State : Michigan State's pair of "big" wins this season at Duke and Notre Dame aren't looking too hot right now. Sparty has not covered in their last 4 games - all as favorites. It's good to see that Michigan State's leading scorer and rebounder Joey Hauser's knee issue isn't serious and he will be back but it's … [Read more...]

College Basketball Picks for 12/21/20

**Eastern Illinois -3.5 at SIU Edwardsville: Both of these teams have faced similar type of opponents with Eastern Illinois showing superior underlying numbers thus far. Eastern is 4-0 straight up but has yet to cover the spread....I think that ends today. Lay the 3.5. College of Charleston at Georgia State **OVER 142.5 (Circa Line): Georgia … [Read more...]

College Basketball Picks for 11/20/20

**Oklahoma State +7 at Texas: I like what I have seen from the Longhorns thus far, especially on defense but this spread is a tad high in my opinion. Oklahoma State flat out had a bad game vs TCU (3 for 17 from 3-point land) yet still lost by only a point in a game they could have easily won. Their effort should be strong today as they look to … [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...]
