Picks for Best Games on Thursday, February 28th
It is the last day of February and while the excitement of march isn’t quite there, tonight’s games should be decent. There is no headline must-see game but the overall slate is pretty good and worth watching. Here are my against the spread picks for all of tonight’s best games.
Xavier at St. John’s
6:30 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: St. John’s -5.5
Pick: St. John’s
Against the Spread: Xavier
Final Score Prediction: St. John’s 78 Xavier 76
Why this pick? I don’t like asking St. John’s to win by six, they probably win but they usually don’t win by that much.
Nebraska at Michigan
7 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Michigan -12
Against the Spread: Michigan
Final Score Prediction: Michigan 79 Nebraska 56
Why this pick? The Wolverines win this game handily, not sure the scenario where this game comes down to the wire.
Minnesota at Northwestern
9 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Northwestern -1.5
Against the Spread: Minnesota
Final Score Prediction: Minnesota 58 Northwestern 56
Why this pick? I have no numbers to back me up on this but I do think Minnesota is decent, I think they win this one.
Washington at California
11 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: Washington -13
Against the Spread: Washington
Final Score Prediction: Washington 87 California 67
Why this pick? The Pac-12 Champs against the worst team in the Power-5 era, give me Washington.
Arizona State at Oregon
11 PM ET on the Pac-12 Network
Line: Oregon -1.5
Pick: Arizona State
Against the Spread: Arizona State
Final Score Prediction: Arizona State 76 Oregon 65
Why this pick? I don’t think Oregon is good, I’ll pick against them in this one.
Yesterday’s Picks: 3-4
