Picks of the Day: CBB and NBA

5-5 this week. We don’t need to talk about yesterday.

CBB

We got hot early.

Illinois wasn’t going so well, but we jumped on +12.5 with around 7 minutes to go and that minimized the damage.

VIRGINIA-Oakland under 151

Way too many people are on this over. Oakland likes to play fast and they’re one of the most efficient teams offensively, but Virginia can slow anyone down and make them grind. I don’t think Oakland is gonna be able to find enough ways to score in the half court to push this one over.

NORTH CAROLINA (-15) over Clemson

The Heels have the best offense in the country based on efficiency. Clemson likes to slow the game down and that’s just not gonna work today. They’ve also played four games away from their home building and these are the results: 17 point loss to UMass, 18 point win over Rutgers, 6 point loss to Minnesota, and 23 point loss to Georgia.

IPFW (-4.5) over Oral Roberts

The Mastodons are 4-0 at home and they shoot the three really well. They are coming off a big win on the road over Western Michigan. Three of their four losses are to top 40 teams. This is the fifth straight road game for ORU. They lost each of the first four by at least 15 and that includes Missouri State and New Mexico State.

SAN DIEGO STATE-Wyoming under 123

Get ready for a rock fight. Both of these teams rank in the 300s in terms of tempo. SDSU has a top 10 defense, but they’re incapable of knocking down shots. The totals between these two teams last year were 108 and 112.

NBA

SPURS-Suns under 197

The last five times these two have played has resulted in an under. The Suns have gone under in 7 of their last 10. The Spurs have gone under in four of their last five. Phoenix likes to run, but the Spurs are just so good defensively and they’ve held the Suns to an average of 87 PPG the last five times they’ve met.
