Picks for Best Games on Monday, February 11th
It is Big Monday, which means there will be two huge games with conference Championships at steak. The first and probably best game will feature Virginia at North Carolina, with the winner being in position to hang with Duke atop the ACC standings. The second game will see Kansas trying to stay with Kansas State atop the Big 12 standings as they play at TCU. Here are my full predictions for tonight’s best games.
Virginia at North Carolina
7 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Virginia -1
Pick: North Carolina
Against the Spread: North Carolina
Final Score Prediction: North Carolina 68 Virginia 65
Why this pick? I love Virginia and I think they are the better team overall but with the way both teams are playing right now I will just have to pick the Tar Heels.
Oklahoma at Baylor
9 PM ET on ESPNU
Line: Baylor -3.5
Against the Spread: Baylor
Final Score Prediction: Baylor 78 Oklahoma 65
Why this pick? The Bears beat Oklahoma handily in Norman, they should do similar things in Waco.
Kansas at TCU
9 PM ET on ESPN
Line: TCU -2.5
Against the Spread: Kansas
Final Score Prediction: Kansas 73 TCU 65
Why this pick? The Jayhawks are due for a road win, I think they get it here against a TCU team that is coming off a signature win at Iowa State.
Yesterday’s Picks: 2-2
Year to date: 281-219-13
