College Basketball Picks 3/7/20
Indiana vs Wisconsin
Wisconsin has put together a nice run to finish the season going 7-0 in there last 7 games. Indiana hasn’t done quite as good only winning 4 of there last 11 games. Wisconsin has been slowly moving up my power rankings the last few weeks moving up to 22nd this week. Indiana is only 51st in the power rankings. Wisconsin has done a great job of shooting free throws currently shooting at 76.5%. Indiana hasn’t shot the ball quite as well only shooting 68.1%. My pick for this game is Wisconsin +2.
Best Bet: Wisconsin +2
West Virginia vs Baylor
Over Baylor’s last 4 games they have lost 2 and had to force over time in the third. After their loss to Kansas 2 weeks ago they have struggled to find there way. With that said West Virginia has been even more disappointing losing 6 of there last 8 games. If Baylor wants to keep there 1 seed in the tournament they need to win this game. One of the strongest parts of Baylor’s game has been there three-point shooting. Currently, they are shooting at 35.4% from beyond the arch while West Virginia is only shooting at 28.4%. My pick for this game is Baylor +1.
Best Bet: Baylor +1
Virginia vs Louisville
While Louisville has had there struggles this year they have still looked like one of the best teams in the ACC. One of the best parts of Louisville’s game has been there ability to hold on to the basketball. Coming into this game they are only turning the ball over 17.9% of the time, while Virginia is turning the ball over 20.3% of the time. Louisville has also done a great job of shooting the three currently shooting at 37.6%. Virginia hasn’t shot near as good only shooting at 30.3% from three. My pick for this game Louisville +1.
Best Bet: Louisville +1
Texas A&M vs Arkansas
While Arkansas has a shot at the tournament the only real way they can get in is if they win the SEC tournament. Anything but a win for them in this game would all but kill there small at large chance. With all that said I think that Arkansas will win this game. Coming into this game they are doing a great job of not turning the ball over, only turning the ball over 15.6% of the time. Texas A&M hasn’t done near as good turning the ball over 21.2% of the time. My best pick for this game is Arkansas -3.5.
