Furman @ Wofford picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Wofford +3 Point Spread
Under 139.5 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

Two of the top teams in the Southern Conference will square off Friday when the Furman Paladins take on the Wofford Terriers. The Furman Paladins enter this game with a record of 15-4, which includes a 5-1 conference record, tying ETSU for 1st place in the league. The Paladins are coming off an 83-79 home win over Western Carolina, which was an excellent game to bounce back in following their loss against UNC-Greenville. They will look to build momentum following the win when they travel to take on the Terriers on Friday. Meanwhile, the Terriers enter this game with a record of 11-7 and a conference record of 3-2. Wofford will look to bounce back following their 59-72 road loss against Chattanooga on Wednesday. The loss ended a three-game winning streak for the Terriers. I look for this game to be a highly competitive one that could come down to the last possession. As a result, I’m going with Wofford getting three points in this match-up.

Over Under Pick

Furman has been one of the highest-scoring teams in the nation this season. The Paladins enter this game averaging 78.05 points per game, which ranks 40th in college basketball. They also have a reliable team defensively as they are limiting opponents to 66.11 points per game. Meanwhile, Wofford has been right around the national average in terms of points per game as they are averaging 73.11. Defensively, the Terriers are one of the best teams in the conference, as they are limiting opponents to 68.78 points per game. With defense being a strength for both sides, I look for the under 139.5 points to be the better play.

Dayton @ Saint Louis picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Saint Louis
STL +9 Point Spread
Over 139 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

The Dayton Flyers and St. Louis Billikens face off on Friday and in this game the value lies with the underdog. The Billikens aren’t as good as the Flyers, but they can give them quite the battle. This is the same team that lost to the Auburn Tigers earlier in the season by only six points. The Billikens aren’t averaging as many points as the Flyers, but this is a team that can play at a faster pace. In three of their last ten games they have scored over 80 points. The underdog is 26-9 in the last 35 meetings between the two teams. Back the home squad to cash with ease in this game.

Over Under Pick

These are both teams who can score with ease. Over the last five games, the Flyers are averaging 81.6 points per game while the Billikens are averaging 71.2. Even with both teams having good defenses, the offense should trump that. The over is 6-1-1 in the Flyers’ last eight road games. The over is 10-3 in the Billikens’ last 13 home games. Back the over to cash in this game.

Wisconsin @ Michigan State picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Michigan State
MSU -9 Point Spread
Under 128.5 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

The Wisconsin Badgers and Michigan State Spartans face off on Friday night and in this game the value lies with the Spartans. The Spartans lost their last game against the Purdue Boilermakers, but in their previous five games they were all at home and they won and covered each of the spreads. Away from home, the Badgers are averaging 61.2 points per game, and that type of offense isn’t going to be enough. Two games ago against the Gophers, Cassius Winston put up 27 points, and he is going to be the difference in this game. The Badgers are 5-12 against the spread in the last 17 meetings between the two teams.

Over Under Pick

The Spartans are going to get their points in this game, the big question is just how many the Badgers are going to put up. Over the last five games the Spartans are averaging 74.8 points per game but in this game it feels like they are going to finish right around 70. With the Badgers’ offense struggling on the road, they shouldn’t score above 55 points. The under is 7-1 in the Badgers’ last eight road games. Back the under to cash in this game.

Brown @ Yale picks, expert predictions & betting tips

YALE -12 Point Spread
Over 131.5 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

An Ivy League match-up sees the Brown Bears pay a visit to Payne Whitney Gymnasium at Yale to face the Bulldogs. Brown has finally picked up some momentum with back-to-back wins, which ended a three-game losing streak. Yale has won eight of its last 10 games. The Bulldogs have also been quite outstanding against the spread, as they are 11-2 ATS this season. The Bears have lost nine of their last 10 head-to-head games against the Bulldogs. The road hasn’t been kind to Brown this season, and they have nine straight losses in their last nine visits to Yale. The Bulldogs have been hard to beat at home, and that is why taking the Bulldogs to cover 12 points is the right play.

Over Under Pick

The Bears have increased their scoring in recent games, as they have scored 79 or more points in each of their last two. That is far higher than the amount they have put up in losses this season. Yale is coming off a game in which they combined for 166 total points, in a game that saw them score 108 points alone. Six of the last 10 head-to-head meetings were over totals. The Bulldogs have scored 70 or more points in their last three match-ups. There shouldn’t be any trouble reaching the over 131.5 total in this game.

Michigan @ Iowa picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Iowa -4.5 Point Spread
Over 147.5 Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

The Big Ten is going to send a whole bunch of teams to the Tournament and these are going to be among them. Michigan started red hot but they’ve slowed lately. They are off a road loss to Minnesota and still playing without Isaiah Livers, a key piece on offense and defense. Big man Jon Teske has emerged as the team’s leading scorer and a key defensive presence. He is a legit 7-footer and might give the Hawkeyes some trouble. Iowa will hope some home cooking gives them an advantage in this one, they lost at Michigan and gave up more than 100 points last month. The Hawkeyes are one of the top-scoring teams in the country at just under 80ppg. They also have one of the most consistent scorers in the country in forward Luke Garza, a double-double machine. Iowa evens things up with Big Blue. Take the Hawkeyes.

Over Under Pick

When these teams met last month they crushed the total by 50 points. That is not likely to happen again but we could get another good offensive game. Iowa likes to play at pace and neither has been a great defensive team this season. Both are solid on D but once they get a lather going the points will come. Take the over.

Free College Basketball Picks Against The Spread (ATS)

One of the more popular college basketball wagers is betting against the spread (ATS). Against the spread betting isn’t about picking a winner of the basketball game, it’s about picking the team who will cover the spread.

Let’s say you bet your money that Team A covers the spread (wins by a certain amount of points), Duke -6.5 for example. Or that Team B will cover the spread (keep the game closer than oddsmakers expect), Kentucky +6.5. If Duke beat Kentucky 64-60 ,then Kentucky would cover the spread and underdog backers will cash their ticket of Kentucky +6.5 points.

Betting against the spread is very common in college basketball and that’s one of the main reasons why it’s one of our most popular college basketball predictions on Pickswise.

Free College Basketball Totals Picks (Over/Under)

The other main NCAAB wager is totals which is simply betting over or under a set number of points in a game. This market is seen to be one of the easier markets to beat the book if you can get to grips with some of the most important statistics which contribute to how many points will be scored in a ball game.

Some of the most important factors to consider when handicapping totals in basketball are number of possessions per team in a game and the pace of play.
