NCAA College Basketball Top Picks and Betting Opportunities


19-Xavier at 20-Providence


When: Wednesday, March 1
Where: Amica Mutual Pavilion, Providence, RI

Time: 6:30 PM EST

Save for a loss to Villanova by a single point on Feb. 21, Xavier has played well enough to cover in 3 of their last 4. The Musketeers beat Seton Hall 82-60 as a -1.5 road dog in their last.

Providence has won 3-of-4 as well. The Friars covered in all 3 straight up victories. In the last head-to-head, Providence lost SU but won ATS. The Friars win and cover on their floor.

NCAA College Basketball Pick: Providence


DePaul at 14-Connecticut


When: Wednesday, March 1
Where: XL Center, Hartford, CT

Time: 7:00 PM EST

9-20 DePaul also has a losing spread line record. The Blue Demons are just 2-8 against the spread in their last 10.

Connecticut has gone back to playing excellent hoops. In their last 7, the Huskies have won 6 and covered in 5. No doubt, UConn will dominate DePaul the way they did in the earlier 90-76 contest. The Huskies cover.

NCAA College Basketball Pick: Connecticut


Auburn at 2-Alabama


When: Wednesday, March 1
Where: Coleman Coliseum, Tuscaloosa, AL

Time: 7:00 PM EST

Bama has won 3 straight and 7-of-8, but the Crimson Tide are just 4-4 against the spread in those 8 games.

To make matters more interesting if you want to back Auburn is that the Tigers will be desperate after a 32 points loss to Kentucky in their last. No doubt, Bama can win and cover. But Auburn should bounce back from the awful performance. Back the road team ATS to cash.

NCAA College Basketball Pick: Auburn


Vanderbilt at 23-Kentucky


When: Wednesday, March 1
Where: Rupp Arena, Lexington, KY

Time: 7:00 PM EST

The Commodores are on fire. Vanderbilt has gone 6-of-7 both against the spread and straight up in their last 7.

Vandy beat Tennessee, Florida twice, and Auburn during the stretch. On Wednesday night, the Commodores face a tough team in Kentucky. Vanderbilt may not win straight up, but a cover victory seems probable.

NCAA College Basketball Pick: Vanderbilt


Oklahoma at 11-Kansas State


When: Wednesday, March 1
Where: Bramlage Coliseum, Manhattan, KS

Time: 8:00 PM EST

Oklahoma beat Kansas State 79-65 in the first head-to-head. No doubt, the Sooners are good enough to repeat the effort.

But K-State will be looking for revenge. Also, the Wildcats shoot much better on their floor than they do on the road. So we should expect Kansas State to get it done SU and ATS.

NCAA College Basketball Pick: Kansas State


9-Texas at 22-TCU


When: Wednesday, March 1
Where: Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena, Fort Worth, TX

Time: 9:00 PM EST

Texas keeps getting love but in reality the Longhorns aren’t playing their best basketball. Texas has gone 3-3 straight up in their last 6.

Not only that, but the Horns are 2-4 against the spread in the last 6. Ah, but TCU is playing worse than rival Texas. The Horned Frogs are 2-5 SU and ATS in their last 7. We must believe the Longhorns pick it up in this. Texas is the play to win straight up and against the spread.

NCAA College Basketball Pick: Texas
