Rhode Island @ Fordham
Spread Rhode Island -11.5 @ -110
Rhode Island is 16-5 against the spread in their last 21 games against the Atlantic 10. The under 24-7-1 in Fordham’s last 32 games overall. The under is 17-4-1 in Fordham's last 22 vs. Atlantic 10. Rhode Island is the better team and even at home Fordham isn’t going to have the offense to keep this game close. Look for Rhode Island to win this game and cover the spread with ease. This is also a game where Fordham shouldn't break 45 points which makes the under a strong play, also. Don't be afraid to throw these two plays together in a parlay.

Rutgers @ Penn State
Spread Penn State -6 @ -110
Under is 7-0-1 in Fordham’s last eight Wednesday games. The under 24-7-1 in Fordham’s last 32 games overall. The under is 17-4-1 in Fordham's last 22 vs. Atlantic 10. Rhode Island is the better team and even at home Fordham isn’t going to have the offense to keep this game close. Look for Rhode Island to win this game and cover the spread with ease. This is also a game where Fordham shouldn't break 45 points which makes the under a strong play too. Don't be afraid to throw these two plays together in a parlay. Rutgers is 16-10-1 against the spread this season and 4-6 against the spread this. Rutgers is also 5-3 against the spread on the road so far this season. Penn State is 15-10-2 against the spread and 7-2-1 against the spread in their last ten games. Penn State is also 9-5-1 against the spread at home so far this season. I like Penn State to bounce back in this game, as they had a disappointing result in Indiana. I still believe in this Penn State team as one of the best in the Big Ten and the country. I see them earning a complete win against Rutgers in this one.
Oregon State @ Oregon
Spread Oregon State +10 @ -110
I’ll take the points with Oregon State in this rivalry game. The Beavers have already picked up a decisive win against the Ducks this season and have proven to be a bad matchup for them. Oregon State has covered in four of its last five games against Oregon and have won four of those five contests outright. These teams both like to slow the game down and keep it in the half court, which should be beneficial to the underdog.
I will take Quinnipiac as the road dog in this matchup, as Fairfield's offense has been terrible all season long. Although their defense has played virtually well, I like Quinnipiac to knock enough of their famous 3-pointers to catch the cover and win this game outright.
Harvard Crimson (18-7) at Columbia (6-20) Spread Columbia +7 @ -110
Columbia gave Harvard everything they could handle earlier this season and it’s going to happen again. Look for Columbia’s offense to have success, which will be enough to lead to a cover of the spread.
Providence Friars (16-12) at Villanova Wildcats (22-6)
Spread Providence Friars +9 @ -110
Providence certainly needs this win a lot more than Villanova, even though Nova will still fight for this game. I like the way Providence has played as of late, and I think they will be able to keep this game close enough to catch a cover. I will take Providence plus the points.
Kansas Jayhawks (25-3) at Kansas State Wildcats (9-19) Spread Kansas Jayhawks -11.5 @ -110 1 unit
I will take Kansas in this spot, due to the fact that they have been unstoppable as of late, covering many games in that span. Kansas State will certainly show up for this game, as revenge will be on the minds of many. That also can get to the minds of young athletes, and their talent has not been prevalent enough for me to take them in a home dog spot here. Kansas Jayhawks -11.5 for me.
St. Louis vs. Rhode Island
Spread Rhode Island -6 @ -110
The Rams are placed 48th in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball ratings and are a dazzling 12-1 on their home floor. Rhode Island is scoring an average of 74.7 points, ranking them 88th in DI. They are allowing an average of 68.4 points, positioning them 150th overall. Furthermore, the Rams defense should be able to neutralize an inconsistent Billikens offense. Saint Louis has only scored 65 and 63 points respectively in their last two road clashes.

Creighton @ St Johns
Spread Creighton -4.5 @ -115
St. John’s defense is the weak link and Creighton will take advantage. Look for the Bluejays to run up the score and that will lead to an easy win and cover of the spread. The favorite is 8-2 in the last ten meetings between St. John’s and Creighton.
North Carolina State Wolfpack (18-11) at Duke Blue Devils (23-6)
Spread North Carolina State Wolfpack +13 @ -110
With the way Duke has been playing it would be really difficult for me to lay 13 whole points with them, even at home. On top of that, you have an NC State team that is literally the "last team in" according to Joe Lunardi. I have to take NC State in this spot, as it can not afford to be blown out in this game. A win for them on the road would lock them a spot in the NCAA Tournament. I believe it will keep the game competitive at least.

Texas Tech @ Baylor
Game Winner Baylor @ -340
This is the perfect match up for Baylor to get back on track. It's defense is still one of the best in the country; they have just had some bad games. Texas Tech is struggling to score. This is the perfect way for Baylor to get it's defensive dominance back. The Baylor offense is a deep one and while it will never be a consistent 80+ point team, it is also very unlikely to bust and end up below 60. Baylor has the edge on both sides of the ball right now and it will get back on track here.
Idaho State @ Weber State
Game Total Game Total UNDER 141.5 @ -110
The under is 7-1 in the last eight meetings between Weber state and Idaho State. Idaho State struggles to score on the road averaging only 65.8 points per game and it's lack of scoring is going to be the difference with this game staying under the total.
Davidson @ Richmond
Spread Richmond -5.5 @ -110
Richmond has put together a terrific season as they blew past last season’s win total quite a while ago. The Spiders are 22-7 overall and 12-4 in conference play, putting them tied for second in the Atlantic 10. They have played some tough competition to this point in the season. Richmond beat Wisconsin on a neutral floor along with road wins over Rhode Island and Davidson. The Spiders don’t have any major losses on the books so far this year as they were beaten by Auburn on a neutral floor, Alabama on the road and Saint Louis at home. Richmond’s worst loss was a neutral floor defeat to Radford, which isn’t a terrible defeat. Richmond has won seven of their last eight coming into this contest.
