Picks of the Day: CBB and NBA 1/20

5-6 yesterday. 11-11 on the week. The mediocrity continues. Continuing to bet on college basketball is probably stupid. If you pay attention to the whole country, bananas shit is happening every single day. The number one spot in the country is about to change for the fifth time already, I believe.

Just a few of the things that happened last night:

  • Kansas lost by 19 at Oklahoma State as a 10 point favorite. I had the Cowboys, but I’d be talking out of my ass if I told you I thought that was gonna happen. OSU went up 25 spots in KenPom’s rankings.
  • NC State won by 17 at Pitt as a 9 point dog. It shot the Wolfpack up 20 spots in KenPom’s rankings.
  • Georgetown won by 9 at Xavier as a 10 point dog. The Hoyas also went up 20 spots.
  • And the doozie of them all, Northern Kentucky won by 17 as a 14 point underdog at Oakland. The Norse went up 56 spots (!!!) and Oakland went down 44. NKU had just lost by five at home to a dogshit Cleveland State team three days before. That game made zero sense.

The first three listed would typically be considered a pretty extreme case in terms of volatility in KP’s rankings. Not this year, though. It seems to be happening every single night.  I’m about 15 or 16 bullshit nights away from quitting.
