Picks for Best Games on Tuesday, January 15th
Last night was another rough one and we are now up to seven days without a winning day but this turns around today. After a week of backdoor covers and bad beats it is time to face it head on by making more picks that will surely pay off because I am simply due for it to do so, so here are my picks for tonight’s games.
Seton Hall at Providence
6:30 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Against the Spread: Providence
Final Score Prediction: Providence 65 Seton Hall 62
Why this pick? This game will be close but I will roll with the Friars at home as they hope to stay in the at-large discussion.
Arkansas at Tennessee
7 PM ET on ESPN2
Against the Spread: Tennessee
Final Score Prediction: Tennessee 76 Arkansas 54
Why this pick? Picking Tennessee to win hasn’t failed me yet, Volunteers should roll in this one.
West Virginia at TCU
7 PM ET on ESPNU
Line: TCU -8
Against the Spread: TCU
Final Score Prediction: TCU 80 West Virginia 65
Why this pick? West Virginia just lost at home to Oklahoma State, if they can’t beat the worst team in the Big 12 at home, they won’t cover against one of the best ones on the road.
Virginia Tech at Virginia
8 PM ET on the ACC Network
Line: Virginia -8.5
Against the Spread: Virginia
Final Score Prediction: Virginia 67 Virginia Tech 35
Why this pick? Virginia has had this game marked in their calendar for about a year as it is the first time they can avenge that loss last year to the Hokies, Cavaliers win and win big here.
Marquette at Georgetown
8:30 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: Marquette -2.5
Against the Spread: Marquette
Final Score Prediction: Marquette 96 Georgetown 76
Why this pick? This seems like a game Markus Howard would drop 40 in, so I’ll take the Golden Eagles to win.
LSU at Ole Miss
9 PM ET on the SEC Network
Line: Ole Miss -5
Pick: Ole Miss
Against the Spread: Ole Miss
Final Score Prediction: Ole Miss 76 LSU 65
Why this pick? The Rebels are the best team in the country at covering the spread, that should continue here.
Nevada at Boise State
9 PM ET on CBS Sports Network
Line: Nevada -7.5
Against the Spread: Nevada
Final Score Prediction: Nevada 76 Boise State 64
Why this pick? Boise State isn’t really good this year, so I don’t think they will legitimately challenge Nevada.
Notre Dame at North Carolina
9 PM ET on ESPN
Line: North Carolina -15
Pick: North Carolina
Against the Spread: North Carolina
Final Score Prediction: North Carolina 96 Notre Dame 55
Why this pick? You do not want to be the team facing North Carolina after they just lost by 21 at home to an unranked team, Tar Heels probably win this one big.
