Picks for Best Games on Sunday, January 27th
Today is going to be a Sunday without Football, which of course means the slate of games isn’t bad because College Basketball starts to get some of the airtime. Today’s games features a good Big East Double-Header, a good Big Ten matchup, and a few other good matchups spread out throughout the day, here are my picks on all of the best games being played today
Georgetown at St. John’s
Noon ET on FOX
Line: St. John’s -7
Pick: St. John’s
Against the Spread: St. John’s
Final Score Prediction: St. John’s 93 Georgetown 76
Why this pick? The Red Storm in Madison Square Garden are always tough to beat, I think they win this game comfortably.
Cincinnati at Temple
Noon ET on CBS Sports Network
Line: Cincinnati -2.5
Against the Spread: Cincinnati
Final Score Prediction: Cincinnati 73 Temple 62
Why this pick? The line is pretty low on this one and I do think Cincinnati is due for a breakout game, I think they win this one.
Michigan State at Purdue
1 PM ET on CBS
Line: Michigan State -2.5
Pick: Michigan State
Against the Spread: Michigan State
Final Score Prediction: Michigan State 76 Purdue 64

Seton Hall at Villanova
2:30 PM ET on FOX
Line: Villanova -8.5
Against the Spread: Villanova
Final Score Prediction: Villanova 86 Seton Hall 70

Line: Minnesota -1
Against the Spread: Minnesota
Final Score Prediction: Minnesota 65 Iowa 62
