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 their two recent conference wins should be a confidence builder leading up to this.

**(899)Utah State -15 at New Mexico: The “Pit” in New Mexico isn’t as daunting for visiting teams as it once was. Defense travels and Utah State’s D is elite and should have no problem keeping New Mexico State’s already light offense contained. Utah State smashed the Lobos by 22 points a couple of days back and there’s nothing showing that a repeat of that will not occur. Utah is on a 6-game winning streak and have also covered in all of those contests. The streak continues here.
