The spreads below are from the Sportsbook’s current lines and are ordered based on my personal confidence in each.
Arkansas (+7.0) vs. Kentucky- When will oddsmakers figure out that Kentucky cannot play basketball away from home? They are now 1-5 on the road in SEC play and haven’t covered in any of those 5 losses either. The Hogs should either win this or take it right down to the wire.
Boston College (-3.5) vs. Miami-FL- The Eagles are the better team here with a lot more to play for.
Texas Tech (+1.5) vs. Colorado- The Red Raiders have gotten some big wins at home recently, and I don’t envision the Buffs playing very inspired basketball now that they’re basically played their way off the bubble into the NIT.
Purdue (-5.5) at Indiana- The Boilermakers have played relatively well away from home this year getting wins at Illinois and Virginia Tech. They also beat Indiana by 14 just a few weeks ago, so they should be able to take this one by double-digits.
Florida State (+5.5) at Maryland- I know everyone is predicting an FSU implosion following the loss of Singleton, but I for one think they’ll continue their winning ways without him.
Overall Season Record: 21-21
