Temple vs. Tulsa Prediction

Temple vs. Tulsa odds

The first play I am turning to will be a battle between the Temple Owls and the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. Tulsa enters this game with an underwhelming season so far, playing to the record of 6-7 overall. Temple enters this road game representing a record of 9-6 on the season. The Owls have been led by guard Damian Dunn, scoring 15.1 points per game, and has been great for the Owls this year. This year, Tulsa has been led by guard Sam Griffin, who has been their best player and leader on the court. This will be a big game for both of these teams at this stage in the season as this is a conference game. In this game tonight, the pick I am turning to will be to back the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. Let me get into why I love Tulsa tonight; the first reason is this will be a home game, so Tusla will have their crowd behind them tonight. This is a great position for them to get a much-needed win on their home floor in front of their fans tonight. The second reason is I believe Tulsa holds an advantage in scoring the basketball. Temple averages just one less point a game, but Tulsa is the much better shooting team from the floor. I think their offense will hold a serious advantage tonight and dominate the shooting game. The final reason is let's look at the line for this game. Tulsa comes in as a two-and-a-half-point favorite despite being on the wrong side of .500. I think this line screams Tulsa, and I will fade the public dog in the Temple Owls.

Virginia Tech vs. Virginia Prediction

Virginia Tech vs. Virginia odds

The second pick I am going with on this slate will concern a pair of ACC teams and rivals as the Virginia Tech Hokies will battle against the Virginia Cavaliers. This is a significant game for both of these teams and building their resume for March. Virginia Tech comes into the game tonight with a record of 8-6 and losers of their last two. Virginia enters play with a record of 9-6 on the season and comes off a bad loss to North Carolina. The Cavaliers come into this game as a slight one-point favorite. These teams are similar in the aspect of playing hard-nosed defense and forcing opponents into tough shots. The Hokies feature one of the best players in the conference in forward, Keve Aluma, who has been great this year. Virginia has been led by transfer Jayden Gardner who is scoring 15 points per game. In this game tonight, I am going to back the Virginia Cavaliers at the -1 spread. I think this is a huge game for them tonight and could be a season-changing game with a win. I believe they are the better defensive team and more talented over. They also hold a huge advantage tonight with being the home team; This will be a tough place for Tech to play in, so give me the short home favorite.
