Picks for Best Games on Thursday, January 17th

It is Thursday which usually means PAC-12 Basketball is the best basketball we get, however, it is different tonight as we will have Michigan State head on the road to Nebraska. That game should be great while there are a couple of other matchups to watch, so here are my picks for tonight’s games. 

Michigan State at Nebraska

8 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Line: Michigan State -1

Pick: Nebraska

Against the Spread: Nebraska

Final Score Prediction: Nebraska 67 Michigan State 60

Why this pick? Nebraska is great at home, Michigan State is banged up. I think the Huskers pick up a win here. 

Oregon at Arizona

9 PM ET on ESPN

Line: Arizona -4.5

Pick: Arizona

Against the Spread: Arizona

Final Score Prediction: Arizona 66 Oregon 54

Why this pick? Oregon stinks, they lost to UCLA at home. Teams that lose to UCLA at home don’t win or cover at PAC-12 leader Arizona. 

Loyola Marymount at Gonzaga

9 PM ET on ROOT

Line: Gonzaga -23.5

Pick: Gonzaga

Against the Spread: Gonzaga

Final Score Prediction: Gonzaga 97 Loyola Marymount 65

Why this pick? After Gonzaga decided to backdoor cover against San Fransisco, I am hoping that the Bulldogs decide to do the same here. 

Yesterday’s Picks: 5-0

Year to date: 200-155-12
