College Basketball Picks
UNC is an offensive powerhouse. Virginia is built around patience and solid defense. Earlier this month, North Carolina scored 113 points on N.C. State. Virginia and Miami combined to score 102 points. Which team will dictate pace tonight in Chapel Hill? Dan Jamison gives his prediction.
Since their shock loss to East Carolina on Jan. 5, Cincinnati has spent the past month doing what it does best: winning with its defense. Only South Florida has broken 70 points in regulation on Cincinnati over the Bearcats’ past eight games. Can the Cats defense help them cover against the spread? Online Sportsbooks are giving Cinci between 5 and 6 points and DJ is giving you his college basketball pick.
Louisville wasn’t supposed to be this good this quickly, but the Cardinals have moved up the timetable under Chris Mack with wins over the likes of Michigan State, North Carolina and Virginia Tech. But what sportsbooks and bettors want to know is if they are good enough to cover -3.5 versus the Cardinals. DJ has your free pick.
Where has the offense gone for Virginia? The Cavaliers remain outstanding on defense as always, but they’ve managed just 55 and 56 points in regulation in their past two contests. That might be good enough to beat the likes of N.C. State and Miami, but it’s not going to be good enough to win against the likes of Duke. Can the Cavs find their offense and find a way to win against the spread of -2.5?
If Marquette is going to make a run at the Big East title, it absolutely must win this game. Both the Golden Eagles and the Wildcats are safely in the NCAA tournament field barring an absolute collapse, but at 8-2 in the league, Marquette still has a realistic chance to knock 10-0 Villanova off of its throne and claim its first title in the reconfigured Big East. The sportsbooks and bettors agree with this so far as Marquette is currently an early 1.5 point favorite. DJ gives his college basketball pick!
This will be the first meeting between these clubs this season and if the past results in this series are any indication for this match, Indiana would be the play. The Hoosiers have taken won and covered five of the last six with the only blemish coming in overtime in a pick’em game. Resident NCAA handicapper Dan Jamison is bucking that trend. Find out why.
