CBB Picks: 1/25

0-4 yesterday. The Pittsburgh pick was so far off, it was hard to get mad about. I was happy to be wrong about Purdue. The other two were lost by a total of 3 points. The Houston one is on me for not sticking with playing the first half lines when I like a big favorite. Cougars were up 15 at half and ended up only winning by 14.

GEORGE MASON (-3) over George Washington

GMU will get out on the GW shooters well. GW has been terrible on the other end and should be a nice antidote for a Patriot offense that has been struggling a little bit. Colonials haven’t been able to get anything started on the road.

GEORGIA TECH (+10) over Florida St.

It all seems a little too easy for FSU and they’ve spent a lot of time in Tallahassee this season. GT is coming back home after three straight road games and they’ve shown more than once that they’re gonna be a tough out for the ACC elite all season.

GEORGETOWN (+2) over Creighton

Tough to trust the Hoyas, but I’m on a run of “Georg-” teams right now. Also, the biggest advantage healthy Creighton would have on the Hoyas is the disparity at point guard. Obviously that doesn’t exist without Mo.

ILLINOIS STATE (-13) over Indiana State
ILLINOIS STATE (-7.5) over Indiana State – 1H

Indiana State stinks and they’ve been gutless their last two times on the road.


Some revenge at play here after the Jags took two close ones off the better team last year and prevented the Dons from winning the Summit outright. Dons are coming off a rough week and a half playing up in the Dakotas that probably ruined any chances of a repeat (shared) title bid. With all that and a return home against a shaky defense, I’d expect the Dons to hit roughly 1,000 three-pointers.

Season: 83-82-1 (50.3%)
