Picks for Best Games on Sunday, January 13th
Today is going to be a mostly slow Sunday, however, there are a few games of note to keep track of. The best game will probably be Villanova at Creighton, however, there are other good games to watch, here are my picks for the day’s best games.
Villanova at Creighton
Noon ET on FOX
Line: Creighton -1
Against the Spread: Creighton
Final Score Prediction: Creighton 78 Villanova 74
Why this pick? If a fully healthy 2018 version of Villanova can’t win in Omaha, I don’t think a rebuilding Villanova team will this year.
Michigan State at Penn State
4:30 PM ET on CBS
Line: Michigan State -8
Pick: Michigan State
Against the Spread: Michigan State
Final Score Prediction: Michigan State 79 Penn State 56
Why this pick? The road atmosphere could be tough at first for the Spartans but ultimately I think Michigan State pulls away and wins handily.
Northwestern at Michigan
7:30 PM ET on Big Ten Network
Line: Michigan -12
Against the Spread: Michigan
Final Score Prediction: Michigan 76 Northwestern 54
Why this pick? I have lost every time I have picked the opponent against Michigan, I will not let this happen again here today.
UCLA at Oregon State
10 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: Oregon State -2.5
Against the Spread: UCLA
Final Score Prediction: UCLA 78 Oregon State 65
Why this pick? If you can win at Oregon, winning at Oregon State shouldn’t be an issue. I think a hot UCLA team wins this one.
Yesterday’s Picks: 7-7
Year to date: 187-147-12
