Picks for Best Games on Thursday, January 24th

Thursday’s are usually slower than usual but this Thursday will be different as there will be two Top-25 matchups as well as other quality games, which includes two Pac-12 basketball games. With a good slate of games there are a few more picks than usual, here are my picks for tonight’s games. 

Michigan State at Iowa 

7 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Line: Michigan State -5

Pick: Michigan State

Against the Spread: Michigan State

Final Score Prediction: Michigan State 72 Iowa 61

Why this pick? I get that Iowa is the home team in this game but I’m not going to pick against Michigan State right now. 

North Carolina State at Louisville 

8 PM ET on ESPN3

Line: Louisville -5.5

Pick: Louisville 

Against the Spread: Louisville

Final Score Prediction: Louisville 79 NC State 68

Why this pick? This is a game where I think it would be smart to pick the home team to win, I think Louisville probably wins this one handily. 

Miami at Syracuse 

8 PM ET on ESPN+

Line: Syracuse -8.5

Pick: Syracuse

Against the Spread: Syracuse

Final Score Prediction: Syracuse 78 Miami 62

Why this pick? This Orange team is rolling, I think they win this one handily. 

Washington at Oregon 

9 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Oregon -2.5

Pick: Washington

Against the Spread: Washington

Final Score Prediction: Washington 66 Oregon 55

Why this pick? This Washington team is really good on the defensive side of the ball, they should hold the Ducks to under 60 points, while winning this game. 

Arizona State at UCLA 

9 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Line: UCLA -1

Pick: Arizona State

Against the Spread: Arizona State

Final Score Prediction: Arizona State 78 UCLA 65

Why this pick? UCLA haas gone back to not caring, I think this would be a smart place to pick the Sun Devils to win. 

Yesterday’s Picks: 4-2

Year to date: 219-173-13
