Welcome to one of our favorite plays to track: college basketball consensus picks. Here, we will keep a close eye on what the public’s perception is of the games and fade (go against) them when their one-siding a game and have been duped by the linesmaker.
These picks should make some nice profits and earn you some cash over the course of the NCAA hoops season. If you think about it, point spreads are created based on public perception, so if you can figure out the real value of a game and then see that the general betting public is against that real value, you are really onto something. With that being said, not all one-sided games have value. Homework still needs to be done, which we do.
We highly recommend that you bookmark this page and check back often as it should provide for some tidy profits over the course of the season.
If you came to this page looking for consensus picks from professional handicappers, we’re sorry, we don’t offer such because that’s stealing people’s work and that’s ugly. Check out our consensus-anti public plays and we think you’ll like them much better anyway!

(42.5%)(win), Hofstra +1.5 (35.6%)(win) and DePaul +1 (26.9%)(loss)
Monday, February 9th: Iona +1 (33.4)(loss) looks to be the best
play today with early sharp action coming in on them. West Virginia isn’t
getting much respect at +8 (34.5%) (loss) as they’re nationally televised
tonight on ESPN which is producing an inflated line by a couple points.
Great value here.
