NCAA BASKETBALL – 2.12.2020 – Best Bets for Wednesday’s College Hoops (Free)

46

Hello Daily Play Action! Anthony Marro here happy to share my NCAA Men’s Basketball picks for the entire college season. Last year I was able to supply over 300 picks against the spread and finish the season cashing at a rate of just about 59%. As March Madness approached and I was brought on to write for DPA, readers were treated to a 45-27-2 record of sides and totals over the final month of the season. This season, betting write-ups will posted exclusively on DPA almost every day but be sure to follow my Twitter too so you won’t miss a pick on days with abbreviated slates.

  • Current Season Record: 196-198-6
  • Previous Season Record: 180-127-9

West Virginia -2 vs Kansas

  • This is going to be an incredible battle, but you have to give the edge to Bob Huggins and West Virginia at home. Kansas has won the past three meetings in this series but this defense in Morgantown is looking unstoppable. They will barely sneak out this win
  • You could argue that Derek Culver and Oscar Tshiebwe are an even better pair than Devon Dotson and Udoka Azubuike. Of course, you would be incorrect in making that argument, but the duos are a lot more similar than people realize. All four are likely going to be first team All-Big 12
  • This is a pivotal point in the season for the Mountaineers. They need to at least split Baylor on Saturday and this game if they want to cement their spot on a favorable seed line. West Virginia has not lost at home this season and I think they survive again here

George Mason vs Virginia Commonwealth, Under 138

  • George Mason cost me some money on Sunday but I got to see an abysmal affair from this undersized team. They managed just 32 second half points and failed to cover by a half point. This is in no way a revenge pick, it is just clear they won’t be scoring more than 60 points today
  • A lot of unders cash at home for the Rams and that is no surprise. This defense is exceptional at containing opponents and is much more efficient when they can slow things down at the Siegel Center. Only one opponent topped 70 points there all season
  • The defense of George Mason is well suited to compete with VCU. They are allowing fewer than 68 points per game and have been proficient at defending perimeter shots. That paired with their poor shooting offense should make for a relatively easy under

Florida vs Texas A&M, Under 125.5

  • The Gators are coming off a road loss to Mississippi where they were able to manage just 51 points. This offensive slump is going to extend into today if the starts on Florida are unable to get their shots to fall. I do not expect them to top 65 points in this one
  • The Aggies have hit three unders in a row and are one of the worst teams in the country in terms of total score. Putting up just 60 points per game is abysmal in Division I and they do not have a change at this total if their offense plays as they have been all year
  • Savion Flagg is the only piece of A&M’s team that is moderately appealing, and he has been ice cold as of late. In the past five games he has scored a total of just 20 points and without him penetrating inside this team is going to be in for a very rough evening

Northwestern +6 vs Michigan

  • The Wildcats have not impressed this season, but I like them getting this many points at home tonight. Their last two losses came by a combined seven points and Boo Buie was absolutely electric in their overtime loss to Rutgers. They have a chance to win outright
  • Michigan is coming off an emotional victory against rival Michigan State and I think we will see a bit of an offensive slump tonight on the road. Northwestern will likely slow down to tempo as much as they can which should make for a tight finish in Evanston
  • Isaiah Livers is a hug piece returning for Michigan shooting 50 percent from the field and 49 percent from three. I think we will a shorter than average game for him here in what should be a game the Wolverines control, but not one they will win by very big in

Let’s win today Playmakers! I am confident in every pick that I provide and play them myself. College basketball is unpredictable and that’s why we love it, so always bet smart!
