Picks for Best Games on Wednesday, January 9th

Picks for Best Games on Wednesday, January 9th

Tonight is another full slate of games, with quality games taking place throughout the night. No games stand out as being spectacular, however, there still will be so many games to watch that there is bound to be some decent games. As usual I will pick lines for the headliner games, then I will throw in some other pick’s as well. 

Georgetown at Xavier

6:30 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Line: Xavier -3.5

Pick: Georgetown

Against the Spread: Georgetown

Final Score Prediction: Georgetown 78 Xavier 73

Why this pick? Why is Xavier favored? Jessie Govan and the Hoyas pick up a big road win in this one. 

Marquette at Creighton

7 PM ET on CBS Sports Network

Line: Creighton -3.5

Pick: Marquette

Against the Spread: Marquette

Final Score Prediction: Marquette 79 Creighton 64

Why this pick? I will bank on Markus Howard going off and leading Marquette to a win, although I’m too confident in this one. 

Houston at Temple

7 PM ET on ESPN News

Line: Houston -3.5

Pick: Temple

Against the Spread: Temple

Final Score Prediction: Temple 66 Houston 65

Why this pick? Houston is undefeated and the pressure is mounting as they head into a tough road environment, I think this is where they fall.

Butler at Seton Hall

8:30 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Line: Seton Hall -3

Pick: Seton Hall

Against the Spread: Seton Hall

Final Score Prediction: Seton Hall 78 Butler 64

Why this pick? Seton Hall had a tough loss to DePaul on Sunday but I think they rebound to win handily over a pretty bad Butler team. 

Miami at Florida State

9 PM ET on  the ACC Network

Line: Florida State -10.5

Pick: Florida State

Against the Spread: Florida State

Final Score Prediction: Florida State 84 Miami 63

Why this pick? Florida State tends to play a lot better at home, plus I still think they would win by 10 at Miami, so of course I’m picking the Seminoles. 

TCU at Kansas

9 PM ET on ESPN2

Line: Kansas -7

Pick: Kansas

Against the Spread: Kansas

Final Score Prediction: Kansas 76 TCU 65

Why this pick? The Jayhawks tend to rebound well after losses, I think they get right here and win somewhat handily while everyone is claiming that Kansas isn’t going to win the Big 12. 

Yesterday’s Picks: 5-3

Year to date: 177-133-12
