College Basketball Picks: 3 Best Bets for Tuesday's Games
I am back with my three best picks today for College Basketball, coming off yet another sweep yesterday. We will look to match that today as I love these three bets on this slate!
Tuesday's College Basketball Picks
Oregon vs. BYU Prediction
The first pick I will be looking at will concern a team I plan on betting quite often this season in the Oregon Ducks. The Ducks come into this game sporting a 2-0 record on the young season and coming off a very impressive win beating up on a solid SMU Mustangs team. Tonight Oregon will clash with the BYU Cougars in a battle of the unbeaten on the young season. The Cougars return star guard Alex Barcello. This is a well-coached BYU bunch who will be competitive in many games this season while having their eyes on a trip to march madness all season. On the flip side of things, the Ducks have high expectations this season, coming in the year ranked as a top 15 team in the nation and playing like it. I will be backing Oregon on the first half spread at -2 -115. Oregon is the superior team tonight, and I like them to hit BYU early and often. The Transfers in Jacob Young, Quincy Gurierr, and De'Vion Harman have made a significant impact thus far and will continue to do so tonight. The Ducks should be able to jump out early, similar to their meeting against SMU, and run with the lead for the first half. I love this short number we are getting on the Ducks at home tonight.
Oregon vs. BYU Pick
- Pick: Oregon 1H -2 (-115)
Michigan vs. Seton Hall Prediction
The next game I will be looking at will be a matchup concerning a couple of teams from power conferences—the Seton Hall Pirates from the Big East and the Michigan Wolverines from the Big 10. Michigan is poised to be one of the best teams in the country, and they come into tonight's game vs. Seton Hall sporting a 2-0 record while holding the ranking of number five in the nation.
Seton Hall comes in as a heavy road dog tonight, playing to the tune of a 2-0 record as well, and both of those wins being in blowout fashion. This Seton Hall team brings experience to the table in guards Myles Cale and Jared Rhoden. Seton Hall also made a splash in the transfer portal, landing Kadary Richmond, bringing them some volume-scoring former member of the Syracuse Orange. The interesting add in the portal for the Pirates was Alexis Yetna, former USF big man who has been dominant in his first couple of games and will get a big test tonight, matching up with fellow big man Hunter Dickinson.
This is a well-experienced team as well for the Michigan Wolverines, who bring back the names of Eli Brooks and Brandon Johns Jr while adding Devante Jones in the portal and landing star recruit in Caleb Houstan. This will be a competitive game from start to finish, and for that reason, I am taking the dog here in the Seton Hall Pirates. I believe eight points is far too many in this type of game that could come down to the last few possessions. I will be back the experienced Seton Hall Pirates here as heavy dogs.
Michigan vs. Seton Hall Pick
- Pick: Seton Hall +8 (-110)
Charleston vs. North Carolina Prediction
The final pick I will be looking at tonight will be another first half under! I had to include a first half under for us because we have been crushing these this season. This one will be a showdown between the North Carolina Tarheels and the College of Charleston Cougars. These teams each come into this contest with unbeaten records and will look to stay perfect tonight.
This North Carolina team is projected second in the ACC behind only their arch-rival in the Duke Blue Devils. This squad is coming off a disappointing season with a young roster and is poised for a big bounce-back season. This year, the College of Charleston has been solid, beating up on weaker opponents but facing their toughest task tonight in the Tar Heels.
This is a total that is simply too high sitting at 78.5 for the first half. The pace that College of Charleston will have to play at will need to be much more controlled if they want to win this game. If this turns into a track meet, they know they can not keep up with North Carolina. This would take some dominant shooting to go over in the first half. It is a risk I am willing to take. Let's cash another!
Charleston vs. North Carolina Pick
- Pick: 1H Under 78.5 (-110)
