Top Betting Picks for the Best College Hoops Plays to Wager On

When: Wednesday, Feb. 1

Penn State Nittany Lions at 1-Purdue Boilermakers

When: at 6:30 pm ET
TV/Streaming: BTN

Underdog Penn State has won 3-of-5. When it comes to covering spreads, the Lions have won 4-of-5.

The trend is definitely bullish on Penn State covering in tomorrow’s matchup against Purdue. The Boilermakers are 21-1 SU. But Purdue is just 9-11-2 against the spread this season. Penn State gets the cover.

NCAAM Pick: Penn State Nittany Lions

17-Providence Friars at 16-Xavier Musketeers

When: at 6:30 pm ET
TV/Streaming: FS1

Providence is one of the top covering teams in the Big East. The Friars have gone 14-8 against the spread in their 22 games.

Xavier is also a decent covering team, going 12-9-1. The Musketeers are 1-3 ATS in their last 4, though. Xavier should break the trend on Wednesday night. The home team in this suffered a massive loss to Creighton over the weekend. Back on their court, Xavier bounces back with a big win and cover.

NCAAM Pick: Xavier Musketeers

2-Tennessee Volunteers at Florida Gators

When: at 7:00 pm ET
TV/Streaming: ESPN 2 / ESPN+

Home squad Florida heads into this having gone 5-1 ATS in their last 6. Overall, the Gators are 11-10 ATS.

Tennessee is 18-3 SU and 13-8 against the spread. The Vols have gone 4-0 ATS in their last 4. Because this happens on the Gators’ floor, the spread line shouldn’t be as significant as if the game happened in Tennessee. The Vols are much better. The road squad wins and covers.

NCAAM Pick: Tennessee Volunteers

Georgia Bulldogs at 25-Auburn Tigers

When: at 7:00 pm ET
TV/Streaming: SEC Net / ESPN+

Unranked Georgia has an okay 14-7 record. But the Bulldogs are up against it versus Auburn. The Dawgs have gone 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS in their last 4.

Although Auburn isn’t a great covering team, 10-11 ATS on the season, the Tigers have the edge in this matchup. The home team is 3-1 ATS in their last 4. Auburn grabs the SU and ATS victories.

NCAAM Pick: Auburn Tigers


Villanova Wildcats at 14-Marquette Golden Eagles

When: at 8:30 pm ET
TV/Streaming: FS1

Jay Wright’s squad is going through a rebuild. After 21 games, Villanova is 10-11 straight up and 7-14 against the spread.

Marquette has emerged as one of the Big East’s top squads. The Golden Eagles are 15-6-1 against the spread this season. Don’t be surprised when Marquette blows out Nova on their way to a straight up and spread line win.

NCAAM Pick: Marquette Golden Eagles

Oklahoma State Cowboys at Oklahoma Sooners

When: at 9:00 pm ET
TV/Streaming: ESPN 2 / ESPN+

Sure, Oklahoma played great when dusting Bama 93-69 in their last. But the victory might have been an anomaly.

The trend is to take the points on Oklahoma State. The Pokes are 3-1 ATS in their last 4.

Oklahoma has gone 1-3-1 against the spread in their last 4. Also, the Sooners should bounce after the stunning victory over the Crimson Tide. Oklahoma State to cover is the play.

NCAAM Pick: Oklahoma State Cowboys
