College Basketball Picks
Michigan is at its best when it denies open looks at the basket, mainly in the form of dunks, layups or 3-pointers. The Wolverines want every shot to be a contested look, and they are excellent at forcing their opponents to try to beat a defender. Does Northwestern have enough isolation talent and ability to take their man to the rim to make +12 the pick? DJ breaks down the matchup!
How good is San Francisco, really? The Dons have a glittering record to this point, but they haven’t played much of anyone either. San Francisco does have wins over both California and Stanford, both of which are usually great victories, but the Golden Bears and the Cardinal are a combined 12-18 so far this season. The Dons did play Buffalo, a game they lost. San Francisco looks like a much better team than it’s been in years but are they only 8 points worse than the powerhouse that is Gonzaga?
Zion Williamson has the highest PER in NCAA history, RJ Barrett looks like James Harden 2.0, and Cam Reddish has a vast collection of untapped potential just waiting to be wasted by the Orlando Magic – but is Duke really as good as their individual highlights? The Blue Devils travel to Florida to take on the 13th ranked Florida State Seminoles. Duke is finally playing in a true road game outside of of their state and we will see them tested as 7 point favroites. DJ has your college basketball pick!
Wisconsin’s calling card has been defense throughout its season, and the Badgers finally got back to playing their brand of defense that has made them a threat for years in the Big Ten in their win over Penn State. Can Wisconsin D up and cover with a 5 point advantage on Purdue? DJ breaks down Wisconsin vs Purdue.
The Bulldogs are at the point of their schedule where they’re likely just competing against their own standards. Saint Mary’s will challenge the Bulldogs as usual, and San Francisco seems to have its best team in years, but otherwise, Gonzaga doesn’t look like it’s going to get tested much in the West Coast Conference. So the challenge betting Gonzaga is capping these monster spreads. Dan Jamison breaks down Pacific vs the Zags.
