Picks for Best Games on Monday, November 19th

Today is the going to be a very fun one in College Basketball as we will get the start of the Maui Invitational, along with other big tournaments from tournaments like the CBE Hall Of Fame Classic, MGM Resorts Main Event, and the Paradise Jam Championship game. Here are my predictions for each of the biggest games taking place today.

Auburn vs. Xavier

2:30 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Auburn -9

Pick: Auburn

Against the Spread: Auburn

Final Score Prediction: Auburn 94 Xavier 73

Game Outlook: This game will see an Auburn team, who looks to run teams out of the building against a solid Xavier team, I think Auburn will win this game handily.

Duke vs. San Diego State State

5 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Duke -13.5

Pick: Duke

Against the Spread: Duke

Final Score Prediction: Duke 100 San Diego State 76

Game Outlook: This game will see an incredible Duke team go up against a solid San Diego State team, I think Duke wins comfortably while covering.

Missouri State vs. Nebraska


Line: Nebraska -14

Pick: Nebraska

Against the Spread: Nebraska

Final Score Prediction: Nebraska 73 Missouri State 55

Game Outlook: This game will see a good Nebraska team head just south to take on Missouri State, I think Nebraska wins handily but covering will be hard.

Missouri at Kansas State

7:30 PM ET on FloHoops

Line: Kansas State-7.5

Pick: Kansas State

Against the Spread: Kansas State 

Final Score Prediction: Kansas State 64 Missouri 49

Game Outlook: The Wildcats are one of the best defensive teams in the sport, while Missouri has struggled without Jontay Porter, look for Kansas State to win big.

Arizona vs. Iowa State


Line: Pick Them

Pick: Iowa State

Against the Spread: Iowa State

Final Score Prediction: Iowa State 76 Arizona 67

Game Outlook: This game is very even on paper as both teams are really good, I think the Cyclones edge out Arizona to advance to the next round of the Maui Invitational.

Texas Tech vs. USC

9 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: USC -5.5

Pick: Texas Tech

Against the Spread: Texas Tech

Final Score Prediction: Texas Tech 67 USC 63

Game Outlook: These are two really good teams who both look poised to make it to the NCAA Tournament, I think Texas Tech wins this outright and if not I think they do cover.

Arizona State vs. Mississippi State


Line: Mississippi State -3.5

Pick: Mississippi State

Against the Spread: Mississippi State

Final Score Prediction: Mississippi State 77 Arizona State 64

Game Outlook: While Arizona State is a good team and they will probably be playing with a homecourt advantage, I think the Bulldogs win comfortably in this one.

Illinois vs. Gonzaga

11:30 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Gonzaga -14

Pick: Gonzaga

Against the Spread: Gonzaga

Final Score Prediction: Gonzaga 110 Illinois 88

Game Outlook: This game should be high-paced as both teams like to run, I just think in this game Gonzaga will run Illinois out of the gym.
