Picks for Best Games on Wednesday, January 16th

Tonight is another full slate of games with lots of conference games. There aren’t any Top-25 matchups, however, there are other solid games to bet on. Here are my picks for tonight’s best games. 

Creighton at St. John’s

6:30 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Line: St. John’s -3

Pick: St. John’s

Against the Spread: St. John’s

Final Score Prediction: St. John’s 87 Creighton 75

Why this pick? I would wait to hear the status of Shamorie Ponds for this game, if he’s healthy bet the bank on the Red Storm but if not Creighton will probably win.

Auburn at Texas A&M


Line: Auburn -4.5

Pick: Auburn

Against the Spread: Auburn

Final Score Prediction: Auburn 76 Texas A&M 56

Why this pick? The Tigers need to come out and win this game handily, which I think they do.

Kansas State at Oklahoma

7 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Oklahoma -6.5

Pick: Oklahoma

Against the Spread: Kansas State

Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma 65 Kansas State 60

Why this pick? Expect a low scoring low possession game that comes down to the wire, so taking the points on Kansas State is probably the smart move. 

Alabama at Missouri

9 PM ET on the SEC Network

Line: Missouri -1

Pick: Alabama 

Against the Spread: Alabama 

Final Score Prediction: Alabama 76 Missouri 66

Why this pick? I am due to get an Alabama pick right, it will happen tonight when they win at Missouri. 

Iowa State at Texas Tech


Line: Texas Tech -5

Pick: Texas Tech

Against the Spread: No pick

Final Score Prediction: Texas Tech 67 Iowa State 62

Why this pick? This game should be close but I think Texas Tech should hold on to win but I’m not sure who will cover. 

Houston at SMU

9 PM ET on ESPN News

Line: Houston -1

Pick: Houston

Against the Spread: Houston 

Final Score Prediction: Houston 77 SMU 65

Why this pick? SMU isn’t very good, Houston should be able to win this game pretty easily. 

Yesterday’s Picks: 5-3

Year to date: 195-155-12
