I am siding with Rhode Island in this one. The Rams have won two straight conference games after losing their A10 opener and they did so against strong opposition. They defeated Davidson by 11 points and went on the road and defeated VCU by nine points. The Hawks have dropped all four A10 games and only one of them was close.

The Red Storm have done a really good job against the number lately, and St. John’s really looked good in taking down DePaul. However, I’m still not sold on the Red Storm as St. John’s has just been a hard team for me to back, especially on the road. I’ve bagged on Providence a lot this season, but the Friars are playing some of their better basketball of the season as of late and I can see this being a 6-8 point Providence victory so I’ll lay the points with the Friars in this one.

Mississippi State Bulldogs vs Ole Miss Rebels 7:00 a.m.
Spread
Ole Miss Rebels +2 @ -105


I get that Mississippi State has been the better team for much of the season, and the head-to-head trends can be hard to look into as there tends to be a lot of turnover from year-to-year in college ball. However, Mississippi State has lost 7 of their last 8 trips to play the Rebels at Ole Miss, and the Rebels have played their best ball at home, handily beating a pair of solid teams in Florida and South Carolina while also losing to Memphis, LSU and Auburn all by 4 points or less. I just think given Ole Miss’ recent run of form ATS, getting Ole Miss as a home dog in a rivalry game sounds good to me. Give me the Rebels here

Dayton vs Rhode island 7:30 a.m.
Spread
Rhode Island +9.5 @ -110


The Rhode Island Rams have not only won 10 straight games, but they're 7-2 ATS on the road where they win by an average of 7.1 points and allow 39.3 percent shooting from the field. The Dayton Flyers are an offensive machine and have won 12 straight games, but they're just 7-6 ATS at home and 12-11 ATS on the season. The bottom line is both of these teams are red hot and getting points with either side is probably a good spot to be in. This line is too disrespectful to the Rhode Island Rams.

Kansas State vs. Oklahoma State 9:00 a.m.
Spread
Oklahoma State Cowboys +3 @ -110


Kansas State has had their offensive issues as well, with 67 points or fewer in each of their last four. They’ve played two ranked teams in that time however, so that makes sense. This one should be competitive—at least initially—but I like Oklahoma State to bounce back and cover here.

Match Winner
Butler Bulldogs -4.5 @ -110
1.00/0.91


The Xavier Musketeers are capable of getting the job done here, but they've been an inconsistent bunch for most of the season and haven't exactly fulfilled expectations up to this point. The Butler Bulldogs win at home by an average of 14.1 points and shoot 47.8 percent from the field. Because Butler has been a tough out at home, I'll lay the reasonable chalk.

Match Winner
Seton Hall Pirates -6 @ -110
1.00/0.91


I’ve been high on Creighton a lot this season and the Bluejays could be a team to watch come conference tournament time. However, the Pirates are finally healthy, are talented and deep, and are having their way with teams at home, holding their opponents to just 60.9 points per game and outscoring them by 12.9 points per game. The Pirates are also holding teams to 26.2% from 3-point range at home, something that the Creighton offense tends to thrive on from time-to-time. I just think the Seton Hall defense is the difference here, so I’ll lay the points with Seton Hall at home here.
---------------------------------------------------------
South Carolina Gamecocks (14-9) at Georgia Bulldogs (12-11)
Match Winner
South Carolina +2.5 @ -110

I get that Georgia is at home and the Stegeman Coliseum is where 10 of Georgia’s 12 wins this season have come. However, the Bulldogs are sliding right now and the skidding is coming at a bad time as the Bulldogs need to try to build steam going into the conference tournament. South Carolina is not only playing the better basketball in all facets right now, but the Gamecocks have been pretty good ATS on the road this season and have a good chance at winning this one outright. I’ll take the free bucket with South Carolina in this one.

Georgia State obviously has a lot more to play for in this game, as the Panthers have a chance to be the Sun Belt champions in March. I have not loved the way Georgia State has played as of late, but I think this is a game at home where they are able to get an easier win than recent games. I will take Georgia State -7.5.

The UCLA Bruins are playing some of their best basketball of the season right now and win at home by an average of seven points. You're never sure which UCLA team is going to show up from game to game, but I'll lay the chalk here anyway.

There is no doubt that USC has been seriously slumping in recent games, but I still think this team is very talented. Washington has imploded, so I do not see them pulling out a really tough road game at USC. I will take USC and lay the four points.

Indiana -2 @ -110

Iowa has one of the better duos in the Big Ten in Luka Garza & Joe Wieskamp, however, the Hawkeyes have struggled on the road in conference play this season, posting just a 1-4 record which included a 76-70 loss to the 7-17 Nebraska Cornhuskers. Indiana has struggled lately, however, this is a team still playing for a NCAA Tournament birth and as I think the Hoosiers will come out strong defensively at Assembly Hall, I think the play here is to take Indiana to cover this small spread.

BYU is 17-9 ATS this season and 7-3 ATS in their last ten games. BYU is also 5-4 ATS on the road so far this season. San Diego is 11-13-2 ATS this season and 4-5-1 ATS in their last ten games. San Diego is also 5-6-1 ATS at home so far this season. BYU took care of business at Loyola Marymount and I see more of the same at San Diego. The Toreros have not played well at all and blowing the lead against Pepperdine did not help their spirits one bit. I will take BYU and lay a good amount of chalk.

Colorado Buffaloes (19-6) at Oregon State Beavers (15-9)
Match Winner
Colorado Buffaloes -2.5 @ -110


Colorado is 11-13-1 ATS this season and 5-5 ATS in their last ten games. Colorado is also 3-4 ATS on the road so far this season. Oregon State is 14-10 ATS this season and 4-6 ATS in their last ten games. Oregon State is also 9-4 ATS at home so far this season. This game should be very exciting and fun to watch from start to finish. Two of the better teams in a really lackluster PAC-12 should battle it out to the end. I think home court advantage is key here and I think the state of Oregon will be Buffaloe's fan's least favorite state after the Beavers put down the good ole Oregon sweep of Colorado. Give me Oregon State plus the points at home.

Seton Hall (18-6) at Providence (13-12)
Match Winner
Seton Hall -2 @ -110


Even though Providence is the home team for this game, Seton Hall has been the much better team all season long so I have to side with the Pirates. Seton Hall is number ten in the AP Poll while Providence barely has a winning record so I think that there is a serious talent disparity present within this match up. Plus, Seton Hall already won the first meeting this season by nine points so I think that this spread is a bit too low. As a result, I think that there is some value with the road team in this spot.

Washington State Cougars (14-11) at USC Trojans (18-7)
Match Winner
Washington State Cougars +8.5 @ -110


The Washington State Cougars are just 1-5-1 ATS on the road this season, but they're a team that compete and plays hard, and their recent overtime loss to UCLA shows their ability to hang in games. The USC Trojans have been the better team this season and win at home by an average of 8.8 points, but they're shooting just 40.4 percent from the field in their last five games and are 5-7 ATS at home on the year. USC should win this game, but this line isn't showing much respect to Washington State. I'll take a stab with the free points.

North Carolina State (16-8) at Boston College(12-13)
Match Winner
Boston College +3.5 @ -110

Overall this season the Eagles are giving up 69.1 points and letting opponents shoot 42.3 percent from the field. Derryck Thorton and Jay Heath are both averaging over 12 points per game for the Eagles.

If you play the under/over, the under is 8-2 in the Wolfpack’s last 10 games overall. The under is 9-3 in the Eagles last 12 home games. The home team is 13-5 ATS in the last 18 meetings played between the Wolfpack and Eagles.

Trusting the Eagles is tough but this has been a series dominated by the home team. Back the Eagles to cash in this game.

Villanova Wildcats (18-6) at Temple Owls (13-11)
Match Winner

Villanova is 10-12-2 ATS on the season and 4-5-1 ATS in their last ten games. Villanova is also 3-3-1 ATS on the road so far this season. Temple is 11-13 ATS this season and 4-6 ATS in their last ten games. Temple is also 5-6 ATS at home so far this season.

I think that Villanova is feeling a lot better after their win over Marquette. The Wildcats needed a win to end their slump and now should be playing with a lot more confidence. I am going to take Villanova to cover the reasonable spread of 6 points.

Arizona State (16-8) at California (10-14)

The Sun Devils are a good offensive team, and the Golden Bears are not. Look for the Sun Devils offense to have enough success to win this game and cover the spread

The Red Storm have been a strong offensive team at home averaging 77.8 points per game. The big question always seems to be if the defense is going to do enough to come away with a victory. Junior guard LJ Figueroa paces the Red Storm putting up 14.9 points per game while shooting 39.2 percent from the field.
The Red Storm are 6-2-1 ATS in it's last nine home games. The under is 10-4 in St John’s last 14 games overall. The Red Storm have been inconsistent but it has had success covering spreads at home. Look for St. John’s offense led by Figueroa to have a lot of success which will be enough to cover the spread.

North Carolina Tar Heels (10-15, 3-11 ACC) vs. Notre Dame Fighting (10-15, 3-11 ACC) 7:00 p.m.
Match Winner
North Carolina Tar Heels +4.5 @ -110
1 unit


This is a truly great spot for the North Carolina Tar Heels. First off it has the best player on the court in Cole Anthony and they are way overdue for a win after losing their last five. Plus, bettors will be getting a handful of points to work with. It's probably the best bet of the entire slate of games on Monday. After all, it's not like they're playing some juggernaut of a team. The Fighting Irish have been worse than UNC in their last two games, scoring just 54.5 points per game. Plus, the Irish are awful against the three and that's something that makes the Tar Heels even more valuable.

Iowa State Cyclones (11-14) at Kansas Jayhawks (22-3) 9:00 p.m.
Match Winner
Kansas -16 @ -110


The Cyclones are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games vs. Kansas. The Jayhawks are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games and 15-10 ATS on the season. Iowa State comes into this game ranked 110th in scoring offense, 251st in scoring defense, and 235th in defensive FG%. Kansas has been outstanding at both ends of the court and comes into this match up ranked 84th in scoring offense, 10th in FG%, 7th in scoring defense and 4th in defensive FG%.
This is a huge line for the Jayhawks to cover against an Iowa State team has had their number ATS as of late.The fact that the Jayhawks dominated the Cyclones in a 26-point win on the road earlier this season and that Iowa State is 0-8 on the road this season, I think Kansas dominates this game and cover this large spread. Good Luck.

Vanderbilt (9-16) at Tennessee (14-11)
Match Winner
Tennessee -11.5 @-110
1 unit


Vanderbilt is 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games against the SEC. The Volunteers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games. The road team is 7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings between Vanderbilt and Tennessee. The over is 6-2 in the Commodores last eight road games. The over is 11-5 in Volunteers last 16 games against SEC. This game is all going to come down to which Tennessee team shows up. In the Volunteers last home game it dominated Arkansas. That strong defense should show up again. Look for the Volunteers to win this game and cover the spread.

The Razorbacks are really struggling. This will be another game it loses in blowout fashion. Look for the Gators offense to run up the score. The Razorbacks have no answer. This should be a relatively easy cover for the home team.

The Badgers are 5-2-1 in their last eight home games. The favorite is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between Wisconsin and Purdue. The Badgers are the better team, peroid. It's defense should be the difference in this game. The Boilermakers' inability to score will allow the Badgers to win this game and cover the spread.

Auburn (22-3) at Georgia (12-13)
Match Winner
Auburn -3.5 @ -110


The Bulldogs are averaging 75.6 points per game but the defense is giving up 75. Georgia is led by Anthony Edwards who should be one of the first picks in the draft, and he is averaging 19 points. In each of the last two games the Bulldogs have scored under 70 points, and that will need to change in this game. The Tigers are 10-2 in the last 12 games against the Bulldogs. The over is 7-3 in the Bulldogs last ten games overall.Even if Auburn doesn’t have Okoro in this game they should have no issue. The Bulldogs offense is struggling and they won’t be able to keep up. Look for the Tigers to cover the spread in this one. (This review is the work of the writer "Shane's Pick" associated with Pick Dawgz)

Furman Paladins (22-5) at East Tennessee State Buccaneers (23-4)
Match Winner
Furman Paladins +5.5 @ -110


East Tennessee State might have been looking ahead to this game after their lack-luster performance against VMI, but it was slightly concerning that their offense was only able to put up 72 point against a Keydets defense that is ranked T-203rd in scoring defense & T-236th in defensive FG%. Furman was able to take care of business against East Tennessee State at home earlier this season and as I think the Paladins have balance on both ends of the court to keep this one competitive, I’m taking Furman and the points.

Georgia Tech @ Wake Forest
Spread
Georgia Tech +1.5 @ -110
1.00 unit

Georgia Tech is 15-9 ATS this season and 5-4 ATS in their last nine games. Georgia Tech is also 7-3 ATS on the road so far this season. Wake Forest is 14-11 ATS this season and 7-3 ATS in their last ten games. Wake Forest is also 6-5 ATS at home so far this season. Georgia Tech just took down a good Louisville squad, and they have played the much better basketball as of late. Wake Forest has not looked sharp recently, therefore I like GT as the road dog in this one. (This review is the work of the writer "Ronald's Pick" associated with Pick Dawgz)

Rhode Island (19-6) at Davidson (13-12)
Spread
Rhode Island +2 @ -110
2 units


The expectations were high for the WIldcats but with a loss in this game they will drop back to .500 on the season. In Davidson’s last game they had one of their worst losses of the season. Davidson was 12 point favorites against St. Joe’s but the defense collapsed in the second half and that led to a one point loss. The Wildcats are led by guard Kellan Grady who is averaging 16.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists. The Rams are 15-5 ATS in their last 20 games against the Atlantic 10. Rhode Island is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The under is 10-4 in the Rams last 14 games against the Atlantic 10. The under is 6-2-1 in the Wildcats last nine home games. The Wildcats are going to struggle again, except this time the loss isn’t going to be just ten points. Look for the Rams defense to have success. It should be able to win this game by at least ten points. (This review is the work of the writer Shane associated with Pick Dawgz)

Temple (14-12) at East Carolina (10-17)
East Carolina +3

1.00/0.91

I like East Carolina and the points in this game. It might not be showing up in the win column, but the Pirates have covered in three of their last four games and should have picked up the victory against Cincinnati. They are a tough match-up for an undersized Temple team due to everything Gardner brings to the table. Temple is just 1-5 ATS in its last six road games, so home court advantage should be a factor for the Pirates. They have an 8-6 ATS record at home this season.

Match Winner
Illinois -13.5 @-110

Nebraska’s defense has been terrible especially on the road and there is no reason to think it is going to find a way to magically play better in this game. Illinois is going to get another big game from Dosunmu, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see him hit 30 points. Nebraska isn’t going to have enough offense and that will lead to a cover by Illinois.
