Saturday’s Best Bets in College Basketball: Two Picks You Don't Want to Miss

An absolutely loaded Saturday slate and I honed in on a few key games this afternoon. The first is a rematch between Texas Tech and TCU and the second is a south wind rematch between the Texas AM Corpus Christi Islanders and Houston Baptist. Let's get to it.

TCU vs. Texas Tech Prediction

In the first matchup between these 2 teams, Texas tech got off to a terrible start and was actually down double digits for most of the first half before storming back in the second half to win by double digits. Texas Tech actually covered the full game spread as well due to their impressive 2H and I think they will be able to channel that momentum into a strong 1H performance here tonight. Texas Tech is probably the toughest and most battles tested team in the country and I simply don’t think TCU will be able to match their physicality and toughness. TCU is also coming off a very disappointing second half vs Texas where they squandered another 1H lead and ended up losing the game by 9. TCU has been a strong 1H team this season but I think this is the perfect spot to back the Red Raiders on the 1H line so I am rolling with Texas Tech 1H -2.5 -107 for one of my most confident college basketball bets of the night.

Houston Baptist vs. Texas AM-CC Prediction

Houston Baptist is one of the bottom 50 teams in the country and even though they are somewhat improved this season compared to years past, they are simply not a good basketball team. Texas AMCC has made great improvements this season and have played really well in conference play. Texas AM CC has gotten great guard play this season and I think Houston Baptist is going to have trouble defending them off the dribble. Houston Baptist also defeated Texas AMCC in their first matchup when they were nearly 13 point underdogs and think this is a perfect revenge spot for Texas AM-CC and I expect a strong performance tonight. They have done well for me early in games this season so I am rolling with Texas AM-CC 1H -1.5 -106 for one of my most confident college basketball plays of the night.
