La Salle at DAVIDSON (-11)

By Chris Jordan, Featured Handicapper

I'm looking for Winning Day # 42 of 64, after sweeping 1500♦ plays over the weekend, with Kansas winning outright over Baylor on Saturday, and Creighton smashing Butler on Sunday, then dropping a minimal 500♦ play on West Virginia last night. Boy was I wrong, eh? If Bob Huggins doesn't douse that dumpster fire on the road, the Mountaineers will be an easy out in the postseason.

Oh well, my $1 Bettors have still made $42,090 in college basketball since 2016, which is why I've been the winningest college basketball handicappers at this site since 2016.

Tonight I'm playing the biggest blowout on the entire card, as I love one game in one rivalry from one conference I love and my team is winning this one by at least 20 points!!!

Let's roll with the easiest winner on the card today, as I nail my third-straight College Basketball 1500♦ winner.

17-9-1 run with Complimentary Basketball plays after hitting
Prairie View A&M (-15') by 19 over Mississippi Valley State on Monday

My complimentary winner tonight is on the Davidson Wildcats laying the points to the La Salle Explorers.

I'll be quick with this, because there's not much more I can say other than the dynamic of these being entirely different teams regardless of similar records.

Davidson is 14-12 overall and 8-6 in conference play. La Salle is 13-13, but just 4-10 in league play. The Explorers have struggled against Atlantic 10 teams. Tonight will be no different.

The Wildcats score far too much for La Salle to hang in. They average 73.2 points per game, and that number inflates to 79.9 when playing at home. Now compare that to Davidson's opponents scoring just 61.1 points when playing in North Carolina. The Wildcats are stingy with their guests, and since they want to stay in the upper half of the A-10 standings, they're not going to mess around and let La Salle hang around.

The other thing that will have Davidson on alert is that the sad Explorers who have been blown out by most, come in riding a two-game win streak. That's a nice eye-opener to keep the Wildcats from suffering a letdown.

Lay the home chalk.

Ole Miss (+9) at AUBURN

By Mitchell Newman, Featured Handicapper

Things heading in the right direction yet again!

Last night 40 Dime Winner on Florida State as they steamroll Louisville in that second half of play and win going away.

I plan on another winner for tonight, only this time I am stepping it up just a little bit.

With last night's winner on the Seminoles, I have now won 10 of the past 14 days, including each of the last 3 days, but none of that matters now...need to win again here on Tuesday night!

Tuesday comp play is on the points and the Rebels of Ole Miss to be close when they face the Tigers of Auburn for the second time this season.

In the first series meeting in Oxford, Ole Miss saw their 2 game series winning streak halted, but it did take Auburn overtime before gutting out an 83-82 win over the Rebs who are still 7-3 straight up and 8-2 against the spread the last 10 times these conference rivals have faced one another!

Ole Miss has struggled with losses in their last 3 and Saturday's 103-78 loss at home to Alabama certainly gives us a little added line value tonight versus an Auburn team that is still playing them a little close for comfort.

Auburn is 23-4 and were able to snap an ugly 2 game losing streak - both on SEC road - with a misleading 7-point win and cover over Tennessee on Saturday in a game they trailed for most of the 40 minutes. The Tigers are just 3-6 against the spread over their last 9 games played, and with their 3-7 straight up mark the last 10 in this series with the Rebels, I have a feeling getting on top of this number tonight won't be all that easy. Especially with Ole Miss coming off that ugly egg they laid at home to the Tide.

Bounce-back effort tonight from visiting Ole Miss as they look to climb back to the .500 mark for the season.

Take the points and the Rebels for Tuesday.

Colorado State at SAN DIEGO STATE (-13')

By Jack Brayman, Featured Handicapper

My $10 Bettors have made $20,120 with NBA plays the last three seasons after hitting my 30 Dimer on the Washington Wizards last night. Easy cover against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Tonight I'm back in the NBA with another game involving the Milwaukee Bucks, this time with them playing north of the border in Toronto, against the Raptors.

Easy 30 Dime winner. It's the best value on the card.

Fresh off having their dreams of an undefeated run into the dance, the San Diego State Aztecs will be fired up for this game against the Colorado State Rams.

Nobody in the San Diego city limits thought the UNLV Runnin' Rebels would go into Viejas and steal an outright win. But what's done is done, and now that the first loss is out of the way it's time to move forward.

I don't have any other way to put it other than bounce back, as the Aztecs will want this game more than any other.

Colorado State, which was competitive to start the season, has alternated losses and wins the last four times on the court. The last loss was a road thumping by 24 at UNLV. Now the Rams have to go to San Diego, where the Aztecs give up 57.7 points per game.

And make note, the Rams allow 72.3 points per game and 72.7 on the road, and 73.2 over their last five.

I don't have much more than that, because it's not necessary.

A pissed off San Diego State team might score 100 tonight. Lay the chalk.

Colorado State (+13') at SAN DIEGO STATE

By Stephen DeAngelo, Featured Handicapper

Took a step back Monday, as the Nets somehow blew a 54-41 halftime lead and lost outright to Orlando, costing me a 40 Dime play and ending my three-day winning streak. Not exactly happy about that result, of course. But you give me three of four winning days consistently, and I’ll be happy as a pig in slop.

 

Back at it on Tuesday with my 30 Dime College Hoops Winner #3 of 4 and #2 in a row. For this one, we focus on ACC action as Duke pays a visit to Wake Forest. The Blue Devils—who suffered a 22-point loss at N.C. State in their last road game but bounced back with a 24-point home rout of Virginia Tech on Saturday—are laying a huge number in this one. The question is: Is it too big? Or are the oddsmakers selling the Dukies short?

 

You better believe I’ve got the correct answer—just as I had it Sunday with my 30 Dime winner on Boise State over New Mexico, and just as I had it a week ago tonight with my 30 Dime winner on Nevada over New Mexico.

 

Bottom line: I’m getting back on track tonight with Winning Day #4 of 5, and I’m closing out this month strong. There’s just no other option.

Terrible call with Monday’s complimentary selection on Oklahoma State, which ended a three-game free-play winning streak. Let’s see if we can get back on track Tuesday, as we return to the college hardwood and grab the points with Colorado State at San Diego State.

 

Tough spot for the host Aztecs, who are coming off their first defeat of the season, Saturday's stunning 66-63 setback to UNLV as a 14-point home favorite. Being the last unbeaten to fall—and the fact it happened so late in the season—makes SDSU vulnerable to the proverbial letdown. That is, I'd be shocked if the Aztecs—who were looking to make history by becoming the first Mountain West Conference team to make it through the season undefeated—took the court tonight mentally ready to go. 

 

Let's not forget these are mostly 18- to 22-year-olds, and young men in that age range tend to struggle to process disappointment and tend to need more than 72 hours to get over shocking results. Usually, when a college hoops team suffers the kind of a stunning defeat the Aztecs suffered against UNLV, the lack of focus in the next game tends to show itself on the defensive end of the court. 

 

Of course, the Aztecs' defense ranks among the best in the country, but if there is any kind of letdown, Colorado State has the firepower to take advantage of it. Going back to a 114-104 triple-overtime victory at Tulsa back on Dec. 21, the Rams have scored at least 72 points in 13 of 16 games. And even if you include an 80-56 loss at UNLV exactly a week ago, Colorado State is averaging 77.6 points in its last seven contests, going 5-2 along the way. In fact, since consecutive Mountain West losses to San Diego State (home) and Boise State (road) in early December, the Rams are 13-4.

 

Will CSU add to that victory total tonight? Unlikely, as I think the Aztecs will wake up from their slumber in the second half and pick up the win. They just won't win by enough to cover this big margin. Grab the points.
