YTD ATS Record: 40-43
Iowa +8.5 @ Michigan State and OVER 151
All year long I've been fading Iowa and all year they've been packing it up my ass. The fact of the matter is they're a rock solid basketball team with one of the best players in the country leading them in Luka Garza. He's big, block headed and ugly but he can score from anywhere on the court. 8 points is alarming and initially made me wanna take Michigan State on the rat-line but this game screams to me like it has the potential to be a wire to wire classic with 2 Big Ten Goliaths Garza and Cassius Winston duking it out. I'm taking Iowa with the points simply based on me handicapping this game being super fast-paced and high scoring and will come down to the last two minutes of the game. Sure as hell wouldn't hate some free basketball for the over bettors.
Texas Tech -2 @ Oklahoma and OVER 138.5
Big 12 home teams have been amazing this year. If you take Baylor and Kansas out of the mix Big 12 home teams have been winning at a 80% clip. Oklahoma is coming off losing three straight games and desperately needs this win to keep themselves in the mix for a slim chance to the NCAA tournament. Unfortunately for them I think this is the game that puts the nail in their coffin. Texas Tech has been playing their best basketball as of late and has been the best team in Big 12 play besides Baylor and Kansas. They're extremely well coached with Chris Beard at the helm and I think they find a way to pull out a win here on the road in a close but high scoring game.
Baylor 1H -8, Full Game -13.5 vs Kansas State and OVER 124
Baylor is good. Kansas State is bad. Numbers. Eye test. Anything that has to do with these two basketball teams will tell you the same story. After a tough loss to Kansas, Baylor comes back home to stuff a big FUCK YOU win in poor Kansas States face. I see this game being a blowout from the beginning and never looking back. Take Baylor 1H and game. They score enough to carry Kansas State to an over as well. Let's ride.
