Picks for Best Games on Thursday, February 28th

It is the last day of February and while the excitement of march isn’t quite there, tonight’s games should be decent. There is no headline must-see game but the overall slate is pretty good and worth watching. Here are my against the spread picks for all of tonight’s best games. 

Xavier at St. John’s

6:30 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Line: St. John’s -5.5

Pick: St. John’s

Against the Spread: Xavier

Final Score Prediction: St. John’s 78 Xavier 76 

Why this pick? I don’t like asking St. John’s to win by six, they probably win but they usually don’t win by that much. 

Nebraska at Michigan


Line: Michigan -12

Pick: Michigan 

Against the Spread: Michigan

Final Score Prediction: Michigan 79 Nebraska 56

Why this pick? The Wolverines win this game handily, not sure the scenario where this game comes down to the wire. 

Minnesota at Northwestern

9 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Northwestern -1.5

Pick: Minnesota

Against the Spread: Minnesota

Final Score Prediction: Minnesota 58 Northwestern 56

Why this pick? I have no numbers to back me up on this but I do think Minnesota is decent, I think they win this one. 

Washington at California

11 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Line: Washington -13

Pick: Washington

Against the Spread: Washington 

Final Score Prediction: Washington 87 California 67

Why this pick? The Pac-12 Champs against the worst team in the Power-5 era, give me Washington. 

Arizona State at Oregon

11 PM ET on the Pac-12 Network

Line: Oregon -1.5

Pick: Arizona State

Against the Spread: Arizona State

Final Score Prediction: Arizona State 76 Oregon 65

Why this pick? I don’t think Oregon is good, I’ll pick against them in this one. 

Yesterday’s Picks: 3-4

Year to date: 321-266-14
