Here’s the daily picks for a Tuesday that is LOADED with action.
Brian (90-74-3) – 8-7-1 last time I did this, but I was OH so very close to 10-6… Oh well, let’s get to it.
St. Joe’s (-3.0) Over Virginia Tech – This one’s at the Barclay’s center; I trust the team with the best player on the court when two good, but not great teams meet up.
New Mexico (-3.5) Over Auburn – I just don’t think Auburn is that good at all… New Mexico is at least a solid tournament contender.
Texas Tech (-4.5) Over Arkansas Little Rock – I want to be wrong. If I am, I’m jumping on the ARKANSAS LITTLE ROCK HYPE TRAIN. 11-0 CHOO CHOOO!!!
Arizona State (-6.5) Over Stephen F. Austin – Stephen F. Austin is one of the more disappointing teams this season, although they have looked better lately. But Arizona State has been surprisingly solid so far.
Miami (-16.0) Over La Salle – La Salle lost to Drexel… Miami is going to destroy them.
Cincinnati (-4.5) Over Iowa State – Iowa State is coming off of a tough loss to Northern Iowa. Cincinnati is not the team I’d want to have to play next, especially on the road.
Xavier (-7.0) Over Wake Forest – Wake has actually been surprisingly good so far… But this Xavier team is out to make a statement this year.
Rhode Island (+1.5) Over Old Dominion – I’m trusting Rhode Island to handle a weaker opponent here.
Michigan State (-9.0) Over Oakland – A little fishy that the spread is so small, despite Oakland’s 7-4 record… But still, I can’t bet against Sparty right now, even without Denzel Valentine.
Purdue (-6.0) Over Vanderbilt – I have a feeling Purdue will bounce back from that loss to Butler…
SMU (-10.5) Over Kent State – SMU is playing lights out right now. They have nothing to lose, they aren’t an easy match-up.
George Washington (-6.5) Over Depaul – Yea it’s on the road, but this George Washington team isn’t going to lose to weaker opponents. They’re on a mission this year.
Virginia (-11.0) Over California – I love Jaylen Brown, but this Virginia team is just a much better TEAM, especially at home, than Cal.
Kansas (-6.5) Over San Diego State – I want to believe in San Diego State, especially at home, with a late start, but Kansas is just so good.
Oklahoma (-13.0) Over Washington State – OKLAHOMA IS SO GOOD…
