Hunches in Bunches: January 23rd CBB Picks
2020 YTD ATS Record: 20-16
3-3 night last night. Still profitable with the Syracuse spread and ML +165 double winner. Iowa was a heartbreaker losing by half a point but that's the filthy, dirty, disgusting world of gambling. Nothing to do but brush ourselves off and get back in the saddle. Lets get this muhfuckin bread.
Minnesota @ Ohio State OVER 134 (Game is at 6:30 EST)
I'm petrified of this game ATS. As an Ohio State I have a very little confidence in this team right now. I love this team and I've seen what their capable of. Unfortunately its a very high ceiling but a low floor as well. They've come out and said they think their toughness has been the reason they're lacking over this brutal stretch. I think the Buckeyes come out and play a good game at home but 8.5 is a lot of points in this spot. Especially to a team thats already beaten you by double digits this season. Instead I like the OVER in a game with two teams that average over 70 ppg and combined for 155 points in their previous matchup.
Washington -1 @ Utah and OVER 135
I love this game. Utah is high scoring but also terrible on defense and I think this game has potential to go way over. Utah has no one that can handle the Washington Freshman from Rochester, NY Isaiah Stewart. I think he has a HUGE day in a Washington win that goes over the total. Double winner for the boys one time whadda ya say!
Washington State +13 @ Colorado
Maybe I'm crazy, but this seems like wayyyyy too many points for a Washington State team that's been shaping into form coming off wins over Oregon and Oregon State. Colorado is a good team but they have plenty of chinks in their armor. They just got blown out by Arizona and lost to Oregon State just recently. CJ Elleby is a really good forward for Wazzou and I think has enough star power to keep this within the number.
P.S. - Sprinkle the Wazzou ML at +720 if you can. Nothing crazy just a lil sprinkle. Ya wifey's favorite big boy has got a hunch.
