College basketball Super Tuesday is here and we are back! After a rough 0-3 start, we are now 5-2 in our last seven and absolutely on fire. If the ball bounced our way we very easily could have been 6-1. We have another four picks that we are rolling with tonight.
#12 Kentucky Vs Vanderbilt
Kentucky cashed in for us on Saturday. They travel to Tennessee to take on the Commodores. We last saw Vanderbilt shoot the damn lights out against LSU on their way to their first SEC win in two years. I don’t see them replicating this performance, no way. Kentucky is too big and too long. Vanderbilt’s defense is nonexistent and the Wildcats are rolling right now. To top all that off, yesterday was John Calipari’s birthday, need I say more?
Pick: Kentucky -11
Rhode Island Vs #6 Dayton
I love Dayton, it’s no secret. I gave them out as one of my value picks for a March Madness sleeper. Dayton has the most efficient offense in the country and a future lottery pick on Obi Toppin. Dayton is clearly the favorite here, for good reason. Do not sleep on Fatts Russell though, averaging 20 points a game and leading the nation in the coolest name category. Rhode Island is a team you will see come March, and they normally make some tournament noise. I’m not saying they will win this game but 10.5 seems like too many points
Pick: Rhode Island +10.5
North Carolina Vs Wake Forest
We last saw UNC lose an absolute heart breaker to Duke on Saturday. North Carolina came in to this season with the usual hype and has not lived up to expectations. They are fighting for dead last in the ACC, that’s bad. I think they might have turned a corner against Duke. They played great, if it weren’t for some questionable late game decisions by Cole Anthony, they would have won the game. They will come out with confidence and walk away with a win.
Pick: North Carolina -1
Michigan State Vs #22 Illinois
Speaking of a team not living up to expectations, Michigan State is on a three game losing streak. Coming in to this year as the pre-season #1 team in the nation, they are sitting at 16-8. There is not a team in the country that needs a win more than the Spartans. On the road to take on Illinois, a team that has lost two of their last three. Michigan State will come out with something to prove, they very badly need this win.
Pick: Michigan State -1
