Picks for Best Games on Thursday, January 17th
It is Thursday which usually means PAC-12 Basketball is the best basketball we get, however, it is different tonight as we will have Michigan State head on the road to Nebraska. That game should be great while there are a couple of other matchups to watch, so here are my picks for tonight’s games.
Michigan State at Nebraska
8 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: Michigan State -1
Against the Spread: Nebraska
Final Score Prediction: Nebraska 67 Michigan State 60
Why this pick? Nebraska is great at home, Michigan State is banged up. I think the Huskers pick up a win here.
Oregon at Arizona
9 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Arizona -4.5
Against the Spread: Arizona
Final Score Prediction: Arizona 66 Oregon 54
Why this pick? Oregon stinks, they lost to UCLA at home. Teams that lose to UCLA at home don’t win or cover at PAC-12 leader Arizona.
Loyola Marymount at Gonzaga
9 PM ET on ROOT
Line: Gonzaga -23.5
Against the Spread: Gonzaga
Final Score Prediction: Gonzaga 97 Loyola Marymount 65
Why this pick? After Gonzaga decided to backdoor cover against San Fransisco, I am hoping that the Bulldogs decide to do the same here.
Yesterday’s Picks: 5-0
Year to date: 200-155-12
