Picks for Best Games on Friday, November 16th

Today is another day where we will see day basketball, as games start at 11 AM ET. The Charleston Classic, 2K Empire Classic, Myrtle Beach Invitational, and Paradise Jam should present some quality games. Here are my predictions for each of those games.

Northeastern vs. Virginia Tech

11 AM ET on ESPN2

Line: Virginia Tech -7

Pick: Virginia Tech

Against the Spread: Virginia Tech

Final Score Prediction: Virginia Tech 76 Northeastern 67

Game Outlook: This game should be close but ultimately I think the talent from Virginia Tech will allow them to win this game.

UCF vs. St. Joseph’s

1:30 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: UCF -1

Pick: UCF

Against the Spread: No pick

Final Score Prediction: UCF 73 St. Joseph’s 72

Game Outlook: Both teams looked really good, I think it should be a close one with either team having a chance to win.

Syracuse vs. Oregon

4:30 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Oregon -.5

Pick: Syracuse

Against the Spread: Syracuse

Final Score Prediction: Syracuse 66 Oregon 60

Game Outlook: This game should be low scoring as both teams play good defense, I think the experience of Syracuse lifts them to a win.

Uconn vs. Iowa

6:30 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Iowa -4.5

Pick: Uconn

Against the Spread: Uconn

Final Score Prediction: Uconn 75 Iowa 70

Game Outlook: In the 2K Classic Championship game no one saw coming, Uconn and Iowa will matchup in what looks to be a good game, I think the Garden crowd will favor Uconn, I think they take advantage of that winning a close game.

Purdue vs. Davidson

6:30 PM ET on ESPNU

Line: Purdue 

Pick: Purdue

Against the Spread: Purdue 

Final Score Prediction: Purdue 78 Davidson 67

Game Outlook: Carsen Edwards and Purdue continue to dominate in non-conference play, I think they get tested but they win handily.

St. John’s at Rutgers

7 PM ET on the Big Ten Network

Line: Rutgers -2.5

Pick: St. John’s

Against the Spread: St. John’s

Final Score Prediction: St. John’s 83 Rutgers 78

Game Outlook: Rutgers has looked good thus far this year, while St. John’s hasn’t yet. I think it will be close but I’ll trust St. John’s to win this game.

Kansas State vs. Eastern Kentucky

7:30 PM ET on ESPN+

Line: Kansas State -19.5

Pick: Kansas State

Against the Spread: Eastern Kentucky

Final Score Prediction: Kansas State 62 Eastern Kentucky 49

Game Outlook: Kansas State has been really tough on the defensive end thus far this year but they are struggling on offense, I think a similar result holds in this game.

Ole Miss at Butler

8 PM ET on Fox Sports 2

Line: Butler -9.5

Pick: Butler

Against the Spread: Butler

Final Score Prediction: Butler 76 Ole Miss 63

Game Outlook: In this game I expect Butler to win, it’s just a matter of by how much.

Western Kentucky vs. West Virginia

9 PM ET on ESPNU

Line: West Virginia -8

Pick: West Virginia

Against the Spread: Western Kentucky 

Final Score Prediction: West Virginia 81 Western Kentucky 79

Game Outlook: This game should be competitive and fun to watch, I’ll give the edge to the Mountaineers but I could see it going the other way.

Yesterday’s results against the spread: 7-2

Yesterday I went 7-2, with the only losses coming from the games in Madison Square Garden.

Season results against the spread: 29-21
