College Basketball Picks
KSU is 8-3 straight up at home overall, but just 2-2 in Big 12 home games. They did knock off Baylor last season on this court as a small 2.5 point home underdog so are they a strong play tonight? Read on to get Dan’s betting prediction.
Iowa is coming off a 82-72 road setback against Maryland and will look to get back to their winning ways at home where they are 10-1 this season. The Illini has been playing exceptionally well reeling off seven consecutive wins, but they haven’t fared well in Iowa against losing three straight.
Auburn played Kentucky tough last season, losing the first game but rallied on the road to win in overtime. Neither squad has been padding bankrolls this season with both posting losing records against the number. Is the dog the prudent play here?
The Spartans catch the Badgers dealing with a lot of adversity this week with their second leading scorer Kobe King requesting a transfer and junior guard Brad Davison serving a suspension. MSU comes into the game off back to back wins and covers but keep in mind that they’re just 2-2 on the road in Big Ten games.
Neither team shot well in the earlier meeting a 65-56 win by Rhode Island as an +8.5 road dog. They’ll switch venues moving to the Ryan Center where URI will host VCU in the back end of home and home season series. The oddsmaker has listed the host as just a -1 favorite to double up with a total line of 141.
