Miami Florida vs. Virginia Cavaliers
College Basketball Prediction: Virginia -9.5 points (February 20th 2017)
CLICK HERE FOR WILL ROGERS’ EXPERT COLLEGE BASKETBALL PICKS
The set-up: The 18-8 Miami Hurricanes will be in Charlottesville Monday night for a game with the 18-8 Virginia Cavaliers. Both teams are 8-6 in ACC games, although the Cavs have arrived at that record by losing three consecutive games, while the Hurricanes have won two straight and four of their last five.
Miami: The Hurricanes lost both starting guards (McClellan and Rodriguez) from last year’s 27-win Sweet 16 team and now have to deal with second-leading scorer Ja’Quan Newton (15.0), who will miss his third straight game for violating team rules. However, it should be noted that the ‘Canes have won the last two games without Newton. Senior forward Kamari Murphy (6.8 & 7.6) scored a career-high 15 on Saturday and told reporters. “With guys out, our guys’ motto in the locker room has been to ‘find a way.’ Everybody’s stepping up.” Starting in the frontcourt along with the 6-8 Murphy are the 6-7 Lawrence (7.2 & 3.9) and 6-10 center Izundu (4.8 & 3.2). Newton’s a key cog in the backcourt but the duo of senior Reed (15.7 & 4.5) and freshman Brown (11.4-6.2-3.5) still allows Miami to compete well.
Virginia: How quickly a team’s fortunes can change in the world of sports. Virginia was up 14 points at the half against rival Virginia Tech back on Feb. 12 and a win would have left the Cavs tied for first place in the ACC. However, Va Tech rallied to win that game 80-78 (2 OTs) plus Virginia followed that collapse with losses to Duke and North Carolina. Suddenly, Tony Bennett and his team are three games out of first place and in the middle of its first three-game losing streak in six years! Virginia is a great defensive team (55.8 PPG allowed is a nation’s-best) but the lack of any productive scorers other than PG London Perrantes (12.6-3.2-3.8) has clearly caught up to them. Perrantes is the lone Cavalier to average in double digits on the season and is averaging 15.2 PPG over his last six. However, when a team scores just 55 points on 36.8% shooting (including 25.0% on threes) like it did against Duke and follows with 41 points on 27.8% shooting (including just 2 of 20 on threes) like it did against North Carolina, defense is not enough to win!
The pick: The good news for Virginia fans is that Bennett’s team should draw confidence from the fact that the Cavaliers have won four of the last five meetings between the two schools, including a 73-68 victory in the ACC semifinals last year. Virginia is currently ranked No. 14 but that won’t be the case when Monday’s new poll isrelea sed. Bennett’s team enters Monday scrambling and desperate for a win. My bet says the Cavs do just that.
Stanford vs. California
Basketball Betting Prediction: Stanford +3.5 (February 17th 2017)
CLICK HERE FOR BRANDON LEE’S EXPERT COLLEGE BASKETBALL PREDICTIONS
The Cardinal come into this game having lost 5 of their last 6, but note that 4 of the 5 losses came on the road. Stanford did have an impressive 81-75 win at home over Utah during this stretch as a mere 2-point dog. Much like the case with Cal here, the betting public was all over the Utes in that game. I see a similar outcome here. While Stanford is just 8-4 at home this year, Maples Pavilion is no easy place to play. Just ask the Golden Bears. Cal is 3-16 in their last 19 trips to Stanford. I also don’t love the spot for the Bears in this one, as this is their 3rd straight on the road and they are fresh off a crushing loss at Arizona. I just don’t see Cal being sharp here and I expect a big effort from Stanford on their home floor. Give me the Cardinal +3.5!

Free Pick – Rickenbach CBB Game #851 Friday Free Pick on Valparaiso Crusaders (+) @ Oakland Golden Grizzlies @ 7:00 ET – Big battle in the Horizon League taking place Friday night. With Valparaiso sitting at 11-2 in conference action and Oakland sitting at 9-4, there is no doubt the Golden Grizzlies need this game. However, needing a game and being able to execute on the floor are certainly two different things and Oakland is going to have their hands full with the revenge-minded Crusaders in this one. The Golden Grizzlies won at Valparaiso early last month and the Crusaders are a perfect 5-0 SU the L3 seasons combined when playing with home loss revenge. Also, Valparaiso is a perfect 6-0 SU the L3 seasons combined when they are on the road and their line ranges anywhere from +3 to -3. The Crusaders also are well rested coming into this one and they have gone 10-1 SU the L3 seasons combined when they enter a game playing with 5 or 6 days of rest between games. As for Oakland, they are 1-5 ATS this season in games with a posted total in the 140s. Also, the Golden Grizzlies are 0-3 ATS this season when off of game where they allowed 80 points or more. The road team is also a perfect 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these teams. Oakland already has home losses to Green Bay, Cleveland State and Detroit in Horizon League action this season. Those teams have a combined record of 29-49 on the season. By comparison, Valpo is 21-5 this season! The Crusaders can (and absolutely should) win this one! Free Pick on Valparaiso plus the points early Friday evening. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach
Texas A&M Aggies vs. Vanderbilt Commodores
NCAA Basketball Pick: Vanderbilt -3.5 (February 16th 2017)
CLICK HERE FOR JOHN MARTIN’S EXPERT COLLEGE BASKETBALL PICKS
The Vanderbilt Commodores are getting zero respect from the books now following their worst loss of the season, a 20-point blowout at lowly Missouri. Now they return home with a chip on their shoulder as only 3.5-point favorites here against a rebuilding Texas A&M squad. The Commodores already rolled the Aggies 68-54 as 4.5-point road dogs in their first meeting this season on January 31st. That was a rare road win in this series as the home team had won the previous four meetings. And the Aggies have only two true road wins all season. The Aggies are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a road underdog of 0.5-6.5. The Commodores are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.

Creighton vs. Seton Hall
Basketball Point Spread Prediction: Creighton -1.5 points (February 17th 2017)
CLICK HERE FOR BRANDON LEE’S EXPERT NCAA BASKETBALL PICKS
The Bluejays aren’t the elite team from the beginning of the season with Mo Watson sidelined, but I think this team is flying under the radar right now because of the injury. There’s a lot more talent on the roster than Watson and Creighton has won 3 of 4 with the only loss coming to Xavier by 2-points. During this 4 game stretch, the Bluejays have shot 56% or better in 3 of the games and 48% in the other. That’s the offensive efficiency we were seeing earlier in the year. I believe they have made the adjustments to not having Watson. Seton Hall is 9-1 at home, but are a mere 5-7 in Big East play and their home wins in conference play are against Providence, St. John’s DePaul and Marquette. All teams that are worse than Creighton without Watson. Give me the Bluejays -1.5!

Connecticut vs. UCF
College Basketball Prediction: UCF -4 (February 11th 2017)
CLICK HERE FOR DAVE PRICE’S EXPERT COLLEGE BASKETBALL PICKS
The UCF Knights have gone through a brutal schedule of late, which is why they are 1-5 in their last 6 games overall. They lost on the road to Memphis, Tulsa, Houston and Cincinnati. In their two home games during this stretch, they only lost by 5 to SMU, but thumped Memphis by 15. Now they get a break as UConn visits with an 11-12 record on the season. The Knights are 11-2 at home this year, holding foes to just 56.6 PPG and 32.5% shooting. The Huskies have taken advantage of an easy schedule of late to go 4-1 in their last 5 games overall, but the 4 victories came against AAC bottom feeders South Florida (twice), ECU and Tulane. The loss was a 14-point setback at Cincinnati. UCF is 12-4 ATS as a favorite over the last 2 seasons. The Huskies are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games as a road underdog of 0.5-6.5. The Knights are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a home favorite of 0.5-6.5. Take UCF.
