Picks for Best Games on Thursday, January 31st
I am not going to sugarcoat it, tonight’s slate of games isn’t good. The best game will probably be between Arizona and Arizona State, which should be a good rivalry game. There are a couple other games that should be competitive as well. Here are my picks for all of tonight’s best games.
Purdue at Penn State
7 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: Purdue -7
Against the Spread: Purdue
Final Score Prediction: Purdue 78 Penn State 55
Why this pick? Penn State is the worst team in the Big Ten and it really isn’t close. Purdue is riding some good momentum, I think the Boilermakers continue to play well against a terrible Penn State team.
Temple at Houston
7 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Houston -10
Against the Spread: Houston
Final Score Prediction: Houston 71 Temple 55
Why this pick? Houston is probably still mad over that first loss of the season against Temple, I think they win this game handily.
Arizona at Arizona State
9 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Arizona State -5.5
Pick: Arizona State
Against the Spread: Arizona State
Final Score Prediction: Arizona State 76 Arizona 65
Why this pick? Arizona State wants to prove they are the best team in this state, I think they play with some extra energy and win this game.
Gonzaga at BYU
11 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Gonzaga -14
Against the Spread: Gonzaga
Final Score Prediction: Gonzaga 85 BYU 61
Why this pick? The Bulldogs are wanting to prove they are really good, while improving their NET scores.
Yesterday’s Picks: 6-3
Year to date: 251-190-13
