Picks for Best Games on Saturday, February 9th

It is a big day in College Basketball as there are lots of great games spread out throughout the day. There will be plenty of good games taking place early, which should help lead up to the big Duke-Virginia game. Here are my picks for all of today’s best games. 

Virginia Tech at Clemson

Noon ET on ESPN2

Line: Clemson -2

Pick: Virginia Tech

Against the Spread: Virginia Tech

Final Score Prediction: Virginia Tech 66 Clemson 59

Why this pick? The Hokies are the better team, they may not have Justin Robinson but I think they still win this game. 

Wisconsin at Michigan

Noon ET on FOX

Line: Michigan -6

Pick: Michigan

Against the Spread: Michigan

Final Score Prediction: Michigan 71 Wisconsin 59

Why this pick? I think the Wolverines win this one at home comfortably and get revenge against the Badgers for the Badgers ending their unbeaten season. 

Kentucky at Mississippi State

1 PM ET on CBS

Line: Kentucky -4

Pick: Kentucky 

Against the Spread: Kentucky

Final Score Prediction: Kentucky 73 Mississippi State 65

Why this pick? The Wildcats are rolling right now, I think the Wildcats get a road win at Mississippi State in this one. 

TCU at Iowa State


Line: Iowa State -10.5

Pick: Iowa State

Against the Spread: Iowa State

Final Score Prediction: Iowa State 83 TCU 67

Why this pick? The Cyclones are rolling, I am going to roll with the hot hand in this one. 

Villanova at Marquette

2:30 PM ET on FOX

Line: Marquette -1.5

Pick: Marquette 

Against the Spread: Marquette 

Final Score Prediction: Marquette 81 Villanova 70

Why this pick? Villanova is not playing well right now, they are due for a loss. I think Markus Howard and the Golden Eagles give it to them. 

Louisville at Florida State

4 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Florida State -3

Pick: Florida State

Against the Spread: Florida State

Final Score Prediction: Florida State 73 Louisville 67

Why this pick? The Cardinals are on a tough back to back, this could be a loss for the Cardinals. 

Kansas State at Baylor

6 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Baylor -3

Pick: Kansas State

Against the Spread: Kansas State

Final Score Prediction: Kansas State 78 Baylor 71

Why this pick? The Wildcats are the superior team in my opinion, I think this would be a good time to pick the Wildcats. 

Duke at Virginia 


Line: Virginia -2

Pick: Duke

Against the Spread: Duke

Final Score Prediction: Duke 74 Virginia 68

Why this pick? The Blue Devils are underdogs for good reason but I think this is a game that the Blue Devils win. 

Nebraska at Purdue

8:30 PM ET on the Big Ten Network

Line: Purdue -10.5

Pick: Purdue

Against the Spread: Purdue 

Final Score Prediction: Purdue 81 Nebraska 65 

Why this pick? The Cornhuskers metrics aren’t adjusted yet for the loss of Isaac Copeland, pick the Boilermakers to win handily. 

St. Mary’s at Gonzaga

10 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Gonzaga -17

Pick: Gonzaga

Against the Spread: Gonzaga

Final Score Prediction: Gonzaga 92 St. Mary’s 63

Why this pick? The Bulldogs are beating everyone by 30 right now, take the Bulldogs to win by 17 or more and get revenge for a loss last year on their home floor. 

Washington at Arizona State

10 PM ET on ESPN

Line: Washington -1

Pick: Washington

Against the Spread: Washington

Final Score Prediction: Washington 78 Arizona State 69

Why this pick? The Huskies are rolling, Arizona State just lost to Washington State. I think it would be crazy to not take Washington right now. 

Thursday’s Picks: 5-1

Year to date: 272-213-13
