Picks for Best Games on Saturday, February 2nd

Today is going to be a really busy day, as there are great games all throughout the day, which should be fun. There are all sorts of good games to pick throughout the day and many of them look poised to be fun to watch. There probably isn’t a game that stands out as being the game of the day but the whole slate as a whole is really good, here are my picks for all of today’s best games. 

St. John’s at Duke

Noon ET on ESPN

Line: Duke -17.5

Pick: Duke

Against the Spread: St. John’s

Final Score Prediction: Duke 84 St. John’s 70

Why this pick? The Blue Devils win this game but it is hard to beat teams by 18, especially against good teams like St. John’s. 

Virginia Tech at NC State

Noon ET on the ACC Network

Line: NC State -2

Pick: NC State

Against the Spread: NC State

Final Score Prediction: NC State 79 Virginia Tech 73

Why this pick? It is tough to win at NC State and they look like they are peaking right now, I think they win this game but not by much. 

North Carolina at Louisville


Line: North Carolina -1.5

Pick: Louisville

Against the Spread: North Carolina

Final Score Prediction: Louisville 89 North Carolina 80

Why this pick? The Tar Heels couldn’t get a stop against Louisville earlier this year, they might start to get some here but I think the Cardinals win this game. 

Miami at Virginia

2 PM ET on the ACC Network

Line: Virginia -20

Pick: Virginia 

Against the Spread: Virginia

Final Score Prediction: Virginia 86 Miami 59

Why this pick? Virginia at home is always a good pick, especially when they are playing ACC bottom-feeder Miami.

Texas at Iowa State

2 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Iowa State -7.5

Pick: Iowa State

Against the Spread: Iowa State

Final Score Prediction: Iowa State 86 Texas 67

Why this pick? The Cyclones are great at home, while Texas is going to have a letdown game after beating Kansas, take the Cyclones to win this one. 

Mississippi State at Ole Miss

3:30 PM ET on the SEC Network

Line: Ole Miss -1.5

Pick: Mississippi State

Against the Spread: Mississippi State

Final Score Prediction: Mississippi State 76 Ole Miss 68

Why this pick? The Bulldogs let Ole Miss storm into their home arena and win, I think they get payback in this game. 

Kentucky at Florida


Line: Kentucky -3

Pick: Kentucky

Against the Spread: Kentucky 

Final Score Prediction: Kentucky 68 Florida 59

Why this pick? The Wildcats are playing their best basketball right now, they should win this one against a bubble Florida team. 

Texas Tech at Kansas

4 PM ET on CBS

Line: Kansas -3.5

Pick: Texas Tech

Against the Spread: Texas Tech

Final Score Prediction: Texas Tech 67 Kansas 50

Why this pick? Kansas is right now dealing with so much adversity and it all comes back to kill them in this game, as Texas Tech wins big.

UCLA at Washington

4 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Washington -7.5

Pick: Washington

Against the Spread: Washington 

Final Score Prediction: Washington 78 UCLA 63

Why this pick? The Huskies are rolling, I will keep picking the Huskies in PAC-12 play.

Indiana at Michigan State


Line: Michigan State -15

Pick: Michigan State

Against the Spread: Michigan State 

Final Score Prediction: Michigan State 86 Indiana 65

Why this pick? The Spartans roll everyone at home, this won’t be any different as they play an Indiana team who the sky is falling for. 

Alabama at Auburn

8 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Auburn -9

Pick: Alabama

Against the Spread: Alabama

Final Score Prediction: Alabama 76 Auburn 69

Why this pick? Auburn is playing a big game, they don’t usually win those games. 

TCU at Baylor


Line: Baylor -3.5

Pick: Baylor 

Against the Spread: Baylor 

Final Score Prediction: Baylor 71 TCU 61

Why this pick? Baylor is rolling right now, it would be a good time to pick them to win. 

Yesterday’s Picks: 2-2

Year to date: 256-193-13
