**(656) James Madison -2.5 vs Towson: James Madison, from a statistical standpoint, is getting better and they bring a solid 5-3 (62.5%) ATS record into this home contest. On the flipside, Towson comes in at 1-4 (25%) ATS as a road underdog and their below average defensive numbers worsen on the road. JMU’s Matt Lewis should have another field day vs Towson as he scored 30 points via nine 3-pointers on the road vs. the Tigers 12 days ago.

**(666) Virginia Military Inst. -1.5 vs Western Carolina: I like VMI here as they bring a perfect 6-0 ATS record at home in this contest vs. Western Carolina. Western Carolina stands at 3-9 (25%) ATS for the season, with underlying offensive numbers that are several clicks below VMI. VMI is versatile and can run the court when they need to with a very balanced offense – expect several contributors to reach double digit scoring for VMI today on their way to a cover here.   

**(696) Colorado -14 vs Washington State: At first glance, this may seem like a lot of points for a conference match-up but the line is at 2 “touchdowns” for a reason. Washington State has gone from being inconsistent to just plain bad and making the trip to 5,000+ altitude Boulder will not help things. Colorado did not play well during their trip to the Evergreen State, dropping a game to Washington and then beating this Washington State team by 11 points in a game where the Buffaloes really did not play well. A good wakeup call and now they get home cooking. The offensive numbers all favor Colorado by a large margin in this matchup and I expect the Buffaloes to maintain their perfect (currently 5-0) ATS record at home.

2020/2021 College Hoops Record: 78-64
