Picks for Best Games on Tuesday, February 12th
It is Super Tuesday and with the great games on deck tonight is going to be a really good night of games. There will be four matchups between two Top-25 teams, while there are some other pretty important games around that. Here are my against the spread picks for all of tonight’s best games.
Purdue at Maryland
6:30 PM ET on the Big Ten Network
Against the Spread: Maryland
Final Score Prediction: Maryland 71 Purdue 65
Why this pick? The Boilermakers have been playing with fire as of late, they could get burned in this game.
LSU at Kentucky
7 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Kentucky -8.5
Against the Spread: LSU
Final Score Prediction: Kentucky 71 LSU 66
Why this pick? Kentucky will win this game but asking them to win by 9 against a good team like LSU is a tough ask.
Michigan State at Wisconsin
7 PM ET on ESPN2
Against the Spread: Wisconsin
Final Score Prediction: Wisconsin 71 Michigan State 65
Why this pick? The Badgers are really good at home, Michigan State is struggling right now, this spells Badgers winning this one.
Michigan at Penn State
8:30 PM ET on the Big Ten Network
Line: Michigan -6.5
Against the Spread: Michigan
Final Score Prediction: Michigan 87 Penn State 67
Why this pick? I don’t think Penn State is very good, meanwhile Michigan is the best team in the Big Ten, I will pick the Wolverines.
Butler at St. John’s
8:30 PM ET on CBS Sports Network
Line: St. John’s -3.5
Pick: St. John’s
Against the Spread: No pick
Final Score Prediction: St. John’s 71 Butler 67
Why this pick? This game will be close, I would stay away with this line.
Alabama at Mississippi State
9 PM ET on the SEC Network
Line: Mississippi State -5.5
Pick: Mississippi State
Against the Spread: Mississippi State
Final Score Prediction: Mississippi State 73 Alabama 65
Why this pick? The Bulldogs are in a slump, I think they break out of it in this game.
Kansas State at Texas
9 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Texas -3.5
Against the Spread: Texas
Final Score Prediction: Texas 65 Kansas State 54
Why this pick? The Big 12 always ends up going through Kansas, the Wildcats will need to lose for that to continue, which I think could happen.
Duke at Louisville
9 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Duke -7.5
Against the Spread: Duke
Final Score Prediction: Duke 87 Louisville 67
Why this pick? Picking against Duke is never a good idea, I will pick them to win handily on the road.
