Wednesday's College Basketball Picks

Tennessee vs. Arizona Prediction

Tennessee vs. Arizona Odds

The first game I am diving into will be the best game of the night, in my opinion, as a pair of power conference teams clash in Tennessee. The Arizona Wildcats will travel east to face the Tennesee Volunteers in this prime-time battle. The Wildcats have been perhaps the biggest surprise of any team in this 2022 season. The Wildcats are sporting a perfect record of 11-0 overall and will look to stay unbeaten facing Rick Barnes and the Volunteers tonight. The current line is making Tennesse a slight two-point favorite at home tonight, and I am all over this line with the Vols. The Arizona Wildcats have been outstanding this season. However, this is the perfect letdown spot on the road tonight. Tennessee has some superior guards on this team, and when right, this is a deadly team from outside the three-point line.

The strongest quality for Tennessee is their defense, a top-five defense in the nation. The Volunteers allow just 57.9 points per game, and they are facing a top-five offense in the country in the Wildcats, averaging 91.0 points per game. The most significant advantage in this game is the home crowd of the Vols. This is a tough place to play, to begin with, and the fact that this is such a big game, I expect an electric environment in this one. Kennedy Chandler will make a large impact on this game tonight as I see him as the best overall player in the game. I will gladly back the short home favorite tonight on the money line, and we will cash this one in to kick off the night.

Virginia vs. Clemson Prediction

Virginia vs. Clemson Odds

The second matchup I am going to will be a conference battle between rivals in the ACC in the Clemson Tigers as they travel to play the Virginia Cavaliers. The Tigers come into this basketball game tonight, playing to the tune of an 8-4 overall record and 0-1 in ACC conference play, while the Cavs come in playing with an overall record of 7-4 and 1-0 in ACC play. This will be a big game early in the season for both of these teams as they want to start their conference play hot in December. The line here is currently favoring the Cavaliers by three and a half points tonight. The total in this game sits very low at just 119.5, as these teams have both shown to be great defense this season. The play I am going to will be to back the Cavs on the first half spread, which is currently sitting at -1, favoring the Cavs. I believe the Cavs are the more talented bunch here tonight and a huge advantage is that they are on their home court tonight. Tony Bennet is one of the best coaches in the nation, and he will have a great game plan for Clemson tonight coming out of the gate. This is a solid Virginia bunch who will make a statement early on their home cour tonight. Give me the Cavs' first half, and let's get another sweep on this slate!
