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

Pick: Purdue

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

Pick: Houston

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

Pick: Gonzaga

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
