Picks for Best Games on Friday, February 1st
It is Friday night, so there won’t be an abundance of games to watch but there is still a good Big Ten double-header, as well as Buffalo at Bowling Green and there will be a solid Ivy League matchup to watch. I have picks for four quality matchups tonight.
Michigan at Iowa
7 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: Michigan -3.5
Against the Spread: Michigan
Final Score Prediction: Michigan 71 Iowa 62
Why this pick? I think Michigan is clearly the better team in this matchup and I think despite a tough road environment they get the job done.
Yale at Harvard
7 PM ET on ESPNU
Line: Harvard -1
Against the Spread: Harvard
Final Score Prediction: Harvard 76 Yale 71
Why this pick? The Crimson are just now getting healthy, plus this will be a good home environment, I think they just get by a good Yale team.
Buffalo at Bowling Green
8 PM ET on CBS Sports Network
Line: Buffalo -8
Against the Spread: Buffalo
Final Score Prediction: Buffalo 83 Bowling Green 69
Why this pick? This will be a quality game and it will probably be a close game early but I think the Bulls wind up pulling away.
Maryland at Wisconsin
PM ET on
Line: Wisconsin -5
Against the Spread: Wisconsin
Final Score Prediction: Wisconsin 78 Maryland 69
Why this pick? Maryland is starting to struggle a little bit, plus I think Wisconsin found out how to attack Maryland late in their last matchup. This could be a good time to pick the Badgers.
