College Basketball Picks 1/2/21

Clemson vs Miami

For the first game on Saturday’s card Clemson is taking on Miami. Clemson has had a very good start to the season coming into this game at 6-1. This is in large part due to their defense that comes in as the second most efficient in all of College Basketball. Miami’s defense has not been nearly as good only coming in as the 41st most efficient defense. My play for this one is Clemson.

Toledo vs Western Michigan

The next game on the card is a MAC showdown between Toledo and Western Michigan. Toledo has been a very good team on both sides of the ball this season coming in at 66th in offesive efficiency and 128th in defensive efficiency. Western Michigan on the other hand is 275th in offesive efficiency and 223 in defensive efficiency. My Pick for this game is Toledo.

Notre Dame vs Pittsburgh

The next game on the card is Notre Dame taking on Pittsburgh. Notre Dame comes into this game having shot the ball very well. Notre Dame comes into having shot the ball well from beyond the arc with a 40.9 three-point shooting percent. Pittsburgh on the other hand is shooting at 31.2% from three. My pick for this game is Notre Dame.

The final play on the Saturday card is Arizona heading up to Washington State. Arizona comes into this one as the 62nd ranked team in the Hot Tip Bets Rankings, and Washington State the 148th ranked team.
