Tuesday's College Basketball Picks

LSU vs. Kentucky Prediction - 7:00 pm ET

LSU vs Kentucky Odds

The first game I wanted to get to is an SEC battle between the Kentucky Wildcats and the LSU Tigers. The Tigers come into this game tonight fresh off their first loss of the season in a blowout against SEC rival the Auburn Tigers. Kentucky comes into play today, winning three in a row and just losing two games all season long. These are two very talented teams that we will see playing in March and competing for an SEC championship when the time comes. The coaches for these teams, John Calipari and Will Wade, are both very optimistic about their futures, and this will be a big game tonight for each of these teams. In this game tonight, the play I am turning to is to back LSU on the short money line. I love to bet on bouncebacks for good teams, and this is the perfect bounce-back spot for the Tigers tonight. The guard play for LSU will be a serious advantage in this game tonight. The environment also at LSU should be electric, and we have seen Kentucky struggle on the road this season, including a loss to Notre Dame, a team much less talented than LSU. I expect a big game out of LSU tonight, who is one of the best offenses in all of the nation when clicking. I will gladly take the short home favorite tonight, and let's stay hot, cashing in another bet to kick off our night.

Marquette vs. Providence Prediction - 9:00 pm ET

Marquette vs Providence Odds

The second play of the night to give us a sweep will be a Big East affair between the Providence Friars and the Marquette Golden Eagles. The Golden Eagles come into this game tonight, playing to an 8-6 overall record with new head coach Shaka Smart. The Friars have been outstanding this season, playing to a 13-1 overall record for coach Ed Cooley. The Friars, as you guys know from the articles, have been great to us this season. The experience of this team and defense has been able to lead them all season, and now they see themselves ranked as the 16th team in all of the nation. The play I am turning to tonight will be to back the Golden Eagles at home on the short money line. Providence is currently a public darling, and I understand why but this is a great fade spot tonight. Marquette has not been nearly as good as the Friars, yet they are a favorite tonight. This is a talented team who has struggled to close out games, but I love this spot at home tonight. I expect them to step up and grab a huge conference win. Look for Justin Lewis to continue his stellar play tonight and lead the Golden Eagles to the win at home.
