Picks for Best Games on Thursday, March 7th
I am on a massive skid since Sunday and tonight is when we turn this boat around and move back into good position pick wise. As usual the AAC, Big Ten, and Pac-12 play today but I will refuse to pick Pac-12 games for the remainder of the regular season, as it is unpredictable and whatever side I chose, I lose. Hopefully I will start getting these picks right, starting tonight with the AAC and Big Ten.
Cincinnati at UCF
7 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: UCF -2
Against the Spread: UCF
Final Score Prediction: UCF 64 Cincinnati 59
Why this pick? The Bearcats have a big game at Houston this weekend, they might not show up all the way for this one.
Temple at Uconn
7 PM ET on CBS Sports Network
Line: Uconn -1.5
Against the Spread: Uconn
Final Score Prediction: Uconn 73 Temple 69
Why this pick? It is Senior night, I think Uconn comes out with enough energy to win a big game
Iowa at Wisconsin
7 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Wisconsin -8
Against the Spread: Iowa
Final Score Prediction: Wisconsin 70 Iowa 65
Why this pick? This will be a tough grind it out game, although I do see the Badgers getting just enough stops to win this game.
Indian at Illinois
8 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: Illinois -2
Against the Spread: Indiana
Final Score Prediction: Indiana 76 Illinois 70
Why this pick? I think Indiana has finally figured out how to win, this could be dangerous for Illinois pickers.
SMU at Houston
9 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Houston -13.5
Against the Spread: Houston
Final Score Prediction: Houston 76 SMU 54
Why this pick? Houston coming off a loss, plus SMU is bad. This feels like an easy pick.
