Picks for Best Games on Wednesday, November 13th
The Gavitt Games tipped off yesterday and today we will get the premier matchup of the Gavitt Games as National Championship runner-up Michigan will head on the road to play the team who beat them in the title game, the Villanova Wildcats. There will also be two other games in the Gavitt games, headlined by Marquette playing at Indiana, while other teams will be in action, here are my picks for all of tonight’s biggest games.
Michigan at Villanova
6:30 PM ET on FS1
Line: Villanova -7
Against the Spread: Villanova
Final Score Prediction: Villanova 73 Michigan 58
Game Outlook: Both teams are way different from when they matched up in the National Championship game last April, as there are new stars and almost a whole new cast of characters. Michigan has struggled on offense to start the season, while Villanova appears to have not missed a beat, this will lead to a comfortable Wildcat win.
Eastern Michigan at Duke
7 PM ET on the ACC Network
Line: Duke -23
Against the Spread: Don’t pick
Final Score Prediction: Duke 92 Eastern Michigan 68
Game Outlook: The Blue Devils come into this game off a 22 point win against Army. Eastern Michigan should keep this game close for a little while but Duke should win comfortably, the only question is whether or not they will cover the spread.
Radford at Notre Dame
7 PM ET on the ACC Network
Line: Notre Dame -11.5
Pick: Notre Dame
Against the Spread: Notre Dame
Final Score Prediction: Notre Dame 83 Radford 68
Game Outlook: This game will see a good Radford team head on the road to play Notre Dame. Radford should challenge early, however, I think the Irish pull away late.
Seton Hall at Nebraska
7:30 PM ET on the Big Ten Network
Line: Nebraska -8
Against the Spread: Nebraska
Final Score Prediction: Nebraska 84 Seton Hall 73
Game Outlook: This game should be controlled by Nebraska who tends to play a lot better at home, I think the Cornhuskers should win this game comfortably but don’t be surprised if the Pirates cover.
Marquette at Indiana
8:30 PM ET on FS1
Line: Indiana -5.5
Against the Spread: Marquette
Final Score Prediction: Marquette 77 Indiana 68
Game Outlook: The Golden Eagles and Hoosiers are playing their first tests of the season as Marquette heads into Indiana. I think the Golden Eagles not only cover but I think they will win the game straight up.
North Dakota at Kentucky
9 PM ET on the SEC Network
Line: Kentucky -26
Against the Spread: North Dakota
Final Score Prediction: Kentucky 78 North Dakota 63
Game Outlook: North Dakota heads into Kentucky to play the struggling Wildcats, Kentucky will win the game but I am not expecting them to cover a spread this big.
Yesterday’s results against the spread: 3-3
Yesterday I went even on my picks, bringing me to 21-15 on the season.
Season results against the spread: 21-15
