Tuesday's College Basketball Picks

Ohio State vs. Duke Prediction

Ohio State vs. Duke Odds

The first game I will be looking at will be an affair between the number one team in the nation, the Duke Blue Devils and the Ohio State Buckeyes. This is one of the strangest lines of the season so far as Duke currently sits as a two-point favorite and -130 on the money line. I believe this line is essentially a reverse trap, and I will not fall into it tonight! I do not think Ohio State will be able to compete with Duke in this game for forty minutes. This Duke team is one of if not the best in the nation and will be out to prove it again tonight. I am not overthinking this game. I will ride this hot Duke team coming off the win of the season over Gonzaga. Look for another big game from the best player in the nation and soon-to-be number one pick Paolo Banchero.

Pittsburgh vs. Minnesota Prediction

Pittsburgh vs. Minnesota Odds

The second play of the night I am looking at and will be attacking will be a matchup between the Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Pitt Panthers. This Pitt team has been an excellent fade for me this season, and I believe this Pitt team will be another great fade tonight. The Minnesota Golden Gophers come into this game sitting as a two-and-a-half-point favorite. Minnesota has been impressive to this stage, sporting a perfect record of 5-0, beating some solid teams in Western Kentucky, and winning a double-overtime game vs. Ivy leagues Princeton. Jamison Battle will be the best player on the court tonight, and I believe he will lead the Golden Gophers to another win in this game. Pitt has struggled to defend all season long and is a shell of what their team once was. The Panthers lost their three best scorers from a year ago and are looking for answers this season jumping out to a 2-4 start to the season. I believe this is another excellent fade spot for Pitt tonight, and I will be backing the Golden Gophers on the money line tonight on the road.

Rutgers vs. Clemson Prediction

Rutgers vs. Clemson Odds

The final pick I am looking at for today will concern the Clemson Tigers and the Rutgers Scarlett Knights. This is one of my favorite plays of the day between a pair of power conference teams. Rutgers had one of their best seasons in school history a year ago and will look to do the same thing this season. Rutgers did return two of their star players in Geo Baker, and Ron Harper Jr. Clemson came into this season expected to finish towards the bottom of the ACC but has been fairly impressive in the young season playing to the tune of a 5-2 record, including a close lose to St Bonnie's. This will be a great game tonight that I expect to be tight for most of the game, but I believe this is an excellent get-me-right spot for Rutgers at home.
