Picks for Best Games on Tuesday, January 29th
Tonight is going to be another fun night of games, as there are all sorts of quality matchups to watch. Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina and Kansas will be all be playing tough road games and one or more of these teams could wind up being on the wrong side of an upset.
Tennessee at South Carolina
6:30 PM ET on the SEC Network
Line: Tennessee -9
Pick: South Carolina
Against the Spread: South Carolina
Final Score Prediction: South Carolina 76 Tennessee 71
Why this pick? This Tennessee team isn’t playing well right now, I think South Carolina not only covers but I think they win the game.
North Carolina at Georgia Tech
7 PM ET on the ACC Network
Line: North Carolina -8.5
Pick: North Carolina
Against the Spread: North Carolina
Final Score Prediction: North Carolina 78 Georgia Tech 62
Why this pick? This Tar Heels team is picking up some momentum, now might be a time to jump on the Tar Heels bandwagon.
Kansas at Texas
7 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Kansas -1
Against the Spread: Kansas
Final Score Prediction: Kansas 76 Texas 66
Why this pick? While Kansas lost at Kentucky they did show signs of development, I think they continue to build off some momentum and pick up a road win at Texas.
Virginia at NC State
7 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Virginia -8
Against the Spread: Virginia
Final Score Prediction: Virginia 75 NC State 58
Why this pick? Virginia will pick apart NC State on the offensive end, while they won’t turn it over, forcing the Wolf Pack into playing out of their run and gun style.
Wisconsin at Nebraska
8 PM ET on the Big Ten Network
Line: Nebraska -2.5
Against the Spread: Wisconsin
Final Score Prediction: Wisconsin 68 Nebraska 61
Why this pick? Nebraska without Isaac Copeland, take the Badgers.
Mississippi State at Alabama
8:30 PM ET on the SEC Network
Line: Alabama -2
Against the Spread: Alabama
Final Score Prediction: Alabama 76 Mississippi State 65
Why this pick? If the Crimson Tide can beat Ole Miss and Kentucky at home, they can also beat the Mississippi State Bulldogs as well.
Kentucky at Vanderbilt
9 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Kentucky -9.5
Against the Spread: Vanderbilt
Final Score Prediction: Kentucky 76 Vanderbilt 71
Why this pick? Vanderbilt will lose but I think they at least keep this one close.
Ohio State at Michigan
9 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Michigan -10
Against the Spread: Michigan
Final Score Prediction: Michigan 77 Ohio State 61
Why this pick? Picking against Michigan in a rivalry is a bad idea.
