College Basketball Picks: 3 Best Bets for Wednesday's Games
I am back with my first three bets for college basketball today. This is a great slate today filled with many games as I have broken it down to my three favorite games.
Wednesday's College Basketball Picks
Florida vs. Ohio State Prediction
The first game I will be looking at tonight will be a battle between the Florida Gators and the Ohio State Buckeyes. This is a matchup between a pair of power conference schools with the Ohio State Buckeyes rolling in from the Big 10 while the Gators will represent the SEC. The Gators have had a white-hot start to this season, sporting a perfect 4-0 record this season. Ohio State came into this season as a ranked team but saw themselves fall out of the top 25 after a blowout loss to the Xavier Musketeers. This is a game tonight where both of these teams will be tested and look to grab a pivotal win in the season's early stages. The pick I will be riding will be with the short home favorite in the Florida Gators. This is a rock-solid Florida team who I believe matches up very well with the Buckeyes tonight. Collin Caselton should have an advantage tonight against the Ohio State bigs. Liddell and Key are some of the best big men in the game, but this game's size difference should be a large advantage to the Gators. I expect Collin Casselton to be an x-factor in this game tonight and this high-powered Florida team to get it done tonight.
Florida vs. Ohio State Pick
Pittsburgh vs. Vanderbilt Prediction
The next pick I will be attacking tonight will be a battle between the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Pittsburgh Panthers. Again, this is a battle between a couple of power conference schools, with Vandy reigning from the SEC and the Pitt Panthers representing the ACC. This is a Pitt team who saw the transfer portal take a few of their stars from a year ago, and they will look to find a new identity this season behind coach Jeff Capel. Pitt started the year 0-2 losing to Citadel and West Virginia, but they have recovered in their last couple games with wins and find themselves sitting at an even 2-2 on the young season. Vanderbilt has had a solid start to their year, picking up an excellent record of 3-1. These are a couple of teams bother projected to finish low in their conferences but will be out to prove a point tonight in this power conference affair. This looks like a great spot to Vanderbilt tonight; the X factor in this game will be Scottie Pippen Jr, who is one of the best players in all of the SEC. This is a Pitt team who just does not have enough talent across the board to compete for forty minutes. This is not the best team in Vanderbilt, but they are still the much better team tonight, and I believe this line is a bit disrespectful to Vandy here. I expect Pippen to have his way and Vandy to roll to a win in this position tonight.
Pitt vs. Vanderbilt Pick
Oklahoma vs. Houston Baptist Prediction
The final pick of the day I will be backing will be a matchup between Houston Baptist and Oklahoma. This Oklahoma team has looked very impressive in the young season under new head coach Porter Moser. Moser has led this Oklahoma team to be a gritty hard-working team that has been extremely impressive on the defensive end. This is going to be a spot I will be riding the first half under tonight. I know we love to sweat these out, and we will do so again in this game. Oklahoma should be able to hold Houston Baptist to a low field goal percentage and create turnovers. This is an Oklahoma team that plays at a controlled pace, so it would take some lights-out shooting for this to go over. I am ready to sweat out another first half under with you all!
