Prediction

Michigan State has been the number 1 team in the country in my computer power rankings the entire season. Entering today’s game, they have yet to lose a game in Big Ten play. Ever since the loss to Duke in early December this team has been playing outstanding basketball, winning 8 in a row. Purdue, on the other hand, has struggled during conference play winning only 2 of 5 conference games. In those 5 games, they have only coved 1 while Michigan State has covered 5 in the same stretch. The Big Ten looks to be the best conference in the country and this game will not disappoint. I really like Michigan State -3.5 in this game.

Best Bet: Michigan State -3.5

Quinnipiac vs Monmouth

Prediction

Quinnipiac has been on a tear as of late winning 6 of there last 7 games, including 3 in conference play. They have been a covering machine this year with a record of 9-4 against the spread. With both teams only having one day of rest, Quinnipiac is going to have a huge advantage playing back to back home games. Both of these teams sit near the top of the MAAC and know that every game counts when it comes to a potential tournament bid. I really like Quinnipiac -1.5 in this game.

Best Bet: Quinnipiac -1.5

Miami(FL) vs Pittsburgh

Time: 1/12/20 @ 6:00 PM ET

Pittsburgh

8-7

Prediction

Miami has struggled to produce wins in conference plays, but to be far all 3 were to top 10 teams. The biggest part of there game has been shooting the 3 ball.  So far this season they have shot at 36.7% while Pittsburgh has only shot 30.1%. Playing at home is one of the biggest advantages in college sports, and Pittsburgh to Miami isn’t a short trip. Miami will no dought have a huge advantage coming into this game. This is why I really like Miami -2.5 in this game.

Best Bet: Miami(FL) -2.5
