Picks for Best Games on Sunday, January 6th
Today is going to be a solid day of College Basketball, as there will be multiple quality games, as well as a showdown between two Top-25 teams. Here are once again some picks for tonight’s biggest games.
Xavier at Marquette
Noon ET on FOX
Line: Marquette -8
Against the Spread: Marquette
Final Score Prediction: Marquette 99 Xavier 74
Why this pick? After struggling in his last game, Markus Howard will go off and lead Marquette to a blowout win.
Seton Hall at DePaul
1 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: Seton Hall -2.5
Pick: Seton Hall
Against the Spread: Seton Hall
Final Score Prediction: Seton Hall 78 DePaul 65
Why this pick? Why is the line only at 2.5, it’s pretty clear that the Pirates are the better team and they should win handily.
Temple at Wichita State
4 PM ET on ESPN News
Line: Wichita State -1
Against the Spread: Temple
Final Score Prediction: Temple 74 Wichita State 70
Why this pick? If Temple wants to make a run at the NCAA Tournament they need this game, I think they get it here.
Indiana at Michigan
4:30 PM ET on CBS
Line: Michigan -8
Against the Spread: Indiana
Final Score Prediction: Indiana 66 Michigan 63
Why this pick? I will take the Hoosiers to win this game which is probably going to be dumb but I just feel Michigan is going to lose in the near future.
Nebraska at Iowa
5:30 PM ET on the Big Ten Network
Line: Nebraska -2.5
Against the Spread: No Pick
Final Score Prediction: Nebraska 76 Iowa 73
Why this pick? I want to take Nebraska but I’m not sure they win by 3 and I’m not sure they even win the game.
Miami at Louisville
6 PM ET on ESPNU
Line: Louisville -5.5
Against the Spread: Louisville
Final Score Prediction: Louisville 78 Miami 65
Why this pick? Miami played a perfect game at home against NC State but they wore down late, similar things will probably happen in this game.
Wisconsin at Penn State
7:30 PM ET on the Big Ten Network
Against the Spread: Wisconsin
Final Score Prediction: Wisconsin 78 Penn State 65
Why this pick? Wisconsin has been in a funk as of late, I think they come out of it against a Penn State team who is without their head coach.
Yesterday’s Picks: 6-6-1
