CBB Picks: 2/16

OREGON (-9.5) over Utah

The Ducks have been dominant at home in Pac-12 play, besides the Arizona State game that was two days before they beat Arizona by 1000 points. Utah’s decent, but Altman has always seemed to have Krystkowiak’s number. The Utes are a supremely mediocre high-major team. They don’t lose many games they shouldn’t, but they’re also 0-6 in Tier A games. Utah relies on generating most of their offense around the rim and in the mid-range, which doesn’t mesh well with Oregon’s shot-blockers.

MTSU (-7.5) over WESTERN KENTUCKY

MTSU has destroyed weak zones any time they’ve played them this year. With Williams and Upshaw having a field day (46 points) against the Toppers last time out, I could see them gameplanning more to stopping those two, which is just gonna leave more opportunities for Potts, Dixon, and Habersham. The next good showing for WKU against a quality opponent will be their first. Okay, maybe second. They did beat Ohio at home right before Christmas break.

 

Season: 123-105-1 (53.9%)
