Picks for Best Games on Thursday, February 14th
Tonight is another quiet night of games, as there aren’t a lot of great matchups taking place tonight. I think the best game is probably UNC Greensboro and Furman, which is a good mid-major matchup but not a great best game of the day. So despite this pretty bad slate of games, here are my picks for tonight’s best games.
Houston at Uconn
7 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Houston -8
Against the Spread: Houston
Final Score Prediction: Houston 76 Uconn 61
Why this pick? The Cougars are rolling through the AAC, a win at Uconn should be included in that.
Illinois at Ohio State
7 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Ohio State -8
Pick: Ohio State
Against the Spread: Illinois
Final Score Prediction: Ohio State 66 Illinois 61
Why this pick? Illinois is playing great as of late, so picking them to cover an eight point spread probably is a good move.
UNC Greensboro at Furman
7:30 PM ET on ESPN+
Line: Furman -4
Pick: UNC Greensboro
Against the Spread: UNC Greensboro
Final Score Prediction: UNC Greensboro 78 Furman 75
Why this pick? UNC Greensboro is a legitimate at-large candidate, so winning here would be huge, I think they get this win and move closer to an at-large bid.
Gonzaga at Loyola Marymount
11 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Gonzaga -20
Against the Spread: Gonzaga
Final Score Prediction: Gonzaga 95 Loyola Marymount 65
Why this pick? Gonzaga has been blowing teams out of the gym, it shouldn’t be much different here in this game.
Yesterday’s Picks: 3-1
Year to date: 289-225-13
