Picks for Best Games on Saturday, February 16th

I apologize for taking off yesterday, as I felt the slate of games wasn’t quite good enough to make predictions but I am back today. It is a Saturday in February, which means we are due for some madness. There are great games taking place today and some good spreads to pick with, so here are my Against the Spread picks for the day. 

Maryland at Michigan

Noon ET on FOX

Line: Michigan -7

Pick: Michigan

Against the Spread: Michigan

Final Score Prediction: Michigan 71 Maryland 62

Why this pick? I think Maryland keeps this interesting but at the end of the day Michigan is the better team and they are playing at home. 

Clemson at Louisville

Noon ET on ESPN

Line: Louisville -4.5

Pick: Louisville

Against the Spread: Louisville

Final Score Prediction: Louisville 78 Clemson 65

Why this pick? The Cardinals took a devastating loss to Duke on Tuesday but I do think they respond well following that games. 

Oklahoma at TCU

Noon ET on ESPN2

Line: TCU -5.5

Pick: TCU

Against the Spread: TCU

Final Score Prediction: TCU 76 Oklahoma 59

Why this pick? TCU is peaking, Oklahoma is struggling, I will take TCU all day, any day. 

Notre Dame at Virginia 

2 PM ET on the ACC Network

Line: Virginia -18.5

Pick: Virginia 

Against the Spread: Virginia 

Final Score Prediction: Virginia 78 Notre Dame 51

Why this pick? Virginia should win this game handily, a spread less than 20 does seem low.

Florida at Alabama


Line: Alabama -3.5

Pick: Alabama

Against the Spread: Alabama

Final Score Prediction: Alabama 66 Florida 57

Why this pick? In a big bubble game, I think Alabama wins going away late in this one. 

Indiana at Minnesota

2 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Minnesota -3

Pick: Minnesota

Against the Spread: Minnesota 

Final Score Prediction: Minnesota 73 Indiana 65

Why this pick? The Gophers are playing at home where they play well, while Indiana is still struggling, take Minnesota to win this game. 

Baylor at Texas Tech


Line: Texas Tech -7

Pick: Texas Tech

Against the Spread: Texas Tech

Final Score Prediction: Texas Tech 73 Baylor 56

Why this pick? The Red Raiders are rolling right now, this seems like a good time to ride them. 

Iowa State at Kansas State

4 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Kansas State -2.5

Pick: Kansas State

Against the Spread: Kansas State 

Final Score Prediction: Kansas State 71 Iowa State 62

Why this pick? The Wildcats are on fire right now, I don’t want to pick against them right now. 

UNC Greensboro at Wofford

7 PM ET on ESPN+

Line: Wofford -7.5

Pick: Wofford

Against the Spread: UNC Greensboro 

Final Score Prediction: Wofford 74 UNC Greensboro 69

Why this pick? The Terriers are really good but asking them by 8 against a good UNC Greensboro team is hard to do. 

Tennessee at Kentucky


Line: Kentucky -3.5

Pick: Kentucky

Against the Spread: Kentucky 

Final Score Prediction: Kentucky 73 Tennessee 62

Why this pick? Tennessee hasn’t played a Top-40 team in the NET rankings since early December, I think playing a team like Kentucky could take some time to adjust and it will lead them to a loss. 

Yesterday’s Picks: 1-2-1

Year to date: 290-227-14
