College Basketball Plays for 12/26/20

**Detroit Mercy -3.5 vs Oakland: Both of these teams have taken on strong competition so far and their records reflect it. Oakland is still seeking its first win of the season and I don't think it will happen at Calihan Hall in Detroit today. Detroit guard Antoine Davis will be playing on NBA courts soon and in spite of the tough competition (Notre … [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 Selections for 12/22/20

**Hofstra +13 (Wynn) at Richmond: Until Hofstra faces more defense-minded teams, I will continue to back them as double digit dogs.  Richmond likes to shoot the three and I see this game having a lot of offense, which is right up Hofstra's alley. Hofstra is hitting at a 69% ATS clip over their last 77 games and behind their high scoring guards, … [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 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...]
