Picks for Best Games on Monday, February 8th
It is Big Monday, which means we are in for a couple of good games. The headliner will be the battle of Virginia, as Virginia goes on the road to play Virginia Tech. The other Big Monday games won’t be as great but there could be an upset. Here are my against the spread picks for all of tonight’s best games.
Virginia at Virginia Tech
7 ET on ESPN
Line: Virginia -5
Against the Spread: Virginia
Final Score Prediction: Virginia 65 Virginia Tech 57
Why this pick? The Hokies are likely going to be without Justin Robinson, this likely will mean a close game but I think a Virginia win.
Illinois at Wisconsin
8 ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: Wisconsin -11
Against the Spread: Illinois
Final Score Prediction: Wisconsin 69 Illinois 62
Why this pick? The Badgers are too good to lose at home but winning by 11 against a red hot Illinois team is asking a lot.
TCU at Oklahoma State
9 ET on ESPNU
Line: TCU -3
Against the Spread: TCU
Final Score Prediction: TCU 78 Oklahoma State 63
Why this pick? Oklahoma State will keep it close for a while but eventually they will run out of gas and TCU will pull away.
Kansas State at West Virginia
9 ET on ESPN
Line: Kansas State -8.5
Pick: Kansas State
Against the Spread: Kansas State
Final Score Prediction: Kansas State 81 West Virginia 59
Why this pick? I don’t think anyone would be smart to take West Virginia in this one.
