Picks for Best Games on Tuesday, February 19th

It is rivalry week in College Basketball and tonight we have one of the best rivalries in the sport taking place as Purdue plays at Indiana. There are other games in College Basketball that may not be rivalry games but that will have major implications on how the tournament is seeded. Here are my against the spread picks for all of tonight’s most important games. 

Purdue at Indiana

7 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Purdue -4.5

Pick: Purdue

Against the Spread: Purdue

Final Score Prediction: Purdue 73 Indiana 66

Why this pick? Purdue blew out Indiana back in January, this one will be tighter but I think the Boilermakers do wind up winning and covering in this game. 

Vanderbilt at Tennessee


Line: Tennessee -18.5

Pick: Tennessee

Against the Spread: Tennessee

Final Score Prediction: Tennessee 85 Vanderbilt 56

Why this pick? I wouldn’t want to be the team playing Tennessee after they got beat handily at Kentucky, this game screams Tennessee blowout. 

Nebraska at Penn State

7 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Line: Penn State -3

Pick: Penn State

Against the Spread: Penn State

Final Score Prediction: Penn State 73 Nebraska 65

Why this pick? I have no idea why I am picking Penn State, this probably will go wrong but I just have a feeling that the Nittany Lions win this one. 

Maryland at Iowa

8 PM ET on the Big Ten Network

Line: Iowa -2

Pick: Iowa

Against the Spread: Iowa

Final Score Prediction: Iowa 73 Maryland 65

Why this pick? Iowa has been really good at home this season, that should continue in this one. 

Florida State at Clemson


Line: Clemson -1.5

Pick: Clemson

Against the Spread: Clemson

Final Score Prediction: Clemson 71 Florida State 66

Why this pick? Bubble teams seem to always pick up the needed wins late in the season, a Clemson win would classify as that. 

Baylor at Iowa State

9 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Iowa State -8.5

Pick: Iowa State

Against the Spread: Iowa State

Final Score Prediction: Iowa State 85 Baylor 65

Why this pick? Iowa State at home against a slumping Baylor team should be an easy win, I will give the 8.5 points as well. 

Yesterday’s picks: 3-1

Year to date: 297-234-14
