Picks for Best Games on Tuesday, January 22nd
Tonight promises to be a fun night of College Basketball as multiple ranked teams are in action going against tough competition. There could be upsets that take place or it could be a boring night, we will have to wait to find out. Here are my picks for all the best games taking place tonight.
Mississippi State at Kentucky
7 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Kentucky -6.5
Against the Spread: No Pick
Final Score Prediction: Kentucky 69 Mississippi State 63
Why this pick? This is a stay away game, I think Kentucky wins but it will be close enough that you could easily lose on the points.
Villanova at Butler
7 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Line: Butler -1.5
Against the Spread: Villanova
Final Score Prediction: Villanova 76 Butler 67
Why this pick? The Wildcats have been rolling in Big East play and I’m still not sure Butler is all that good, I’ll pick Villanova to win but don’t be shocked if this goes the other way.
Texas Tech at Kansas State
7 PM ET on ESPN2
Line: Kansas State -1.5
Pick: Kansas State
Against the Spread: Kansas State
Final Score Prediction: Kansas State 68 Texas Tech 63
Why this pick? Picking against this Kansas State team right now doesn’t seem like a good idea.
Minnesota at Michigan
7 PM ET on the Big Ten Network
Line: Michigan -13
Against the Spread: Michigan
Final Score Prediction: Michigan 76 Minnesota 65
Why this pick? The Wolverines rebound from their first loss with a blowout win over Minnesota.
Wake Forest at Virginia
8 PM ET on ESPN3
Line: Virginia -21.5
Against the Spread: Virginia
Final Score Prediction: Virginia 78 Wake Forest 44
Why this pick? The Cavaliers have beaten Top-10 teams by more than 24, Wake Forest shouldn’t be an issue.
Duke at Pittsburgh
9 PM ET on ESPN
Line: Duke -13
Against the Spread: Duke
Final Score Prediction: Duke 76 Pittsburgh 60
Why this pick? This game will be close at first but ultimately Duke has more talent that will prevail to lead them to a win.
