Picks for Best Games on Thursday, February 21st
Well College Basketball has become really weird right now and it is reflecting in my picks as of late, so I have changed up my theory on picking and I have a new approach to do so. Hopefully this will lead to a turnaround. Tonight’s slate isn’t great but there are a few games of note to watch and as always I am there with my Against the spread picks.
Michigan at Minnesota
7 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Michigan -4.5
Against the Spread: Minnesota
Final Score Prediction: Minnesota 71 Michigan 67
Why this pick? The Wolverines have been struggling as of late and they have a big showdown against Michigan State coming up, this could all lead to a Minnesota victory.
UCF at Cincinnati
7 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Cincinnati -7.5
Against the Spread: UCF
Final Score Prediction: Cincinnati 65 UCF 60
Why this pick? This will be low-scoring game, with a high spread I think Cincinnati is the smart pick.
Pepperdine at Gonzaga
7 PM ET on Root Sports
Line: Gonzaga -27.5
Against the Spread: Gonzaga
Final Score Prediction: Gonzaga 101 Pepperdine 67
Why this pick? Gonzaga hasn’t played well in the past week, that changes in this game.
Yesterday’s Picks: 2-5
Year to date: 300-244-14
