College Basketball January 10th Prediction

70-62-2 on NCAAB last season up 8.95 units

25-25-1 this season up 0.71 units

Maryland/Iowa under 146.5 at -110 for 5 units. Both teams have solid defenses. Iowa does put up over 80 points a game, but I think they will struggle to score a little against this Maryland team. Most games Iowa has played against good competition have gone under this number. Maryland’s last 6 against solid competition (Ohio State, Indiana, Seton Hall, Penn State, Illinois, and Notre Dame) have all gone under this number. Go missed 3s and defense! Make it ugly.

NBA Friday

61-53-2 on NBA in 2017/18 up 9.28 units

30-28-2 on NBA in 2018/19 up 4.16 units 

7-10-1 on NBA in 2019/20 down 18.91 units

Heat at -155 for 4 units. Brooklyn lost to the Thunder by 8 in OT on Tuesday. The Nets have lost 7 in a row and haven’t covered in any of them. They miss Kyrie. Miami scores more and gives up less points on the season. I like Miami’s 3-point shooting, Jimmy Butler, and Eastern North Carolina native Bam down low to get them the win.

Pacers at -135 for 3 units. Bulls are bad and have lost 5 in a row since beating the Hawks.

Mavericks at -130 for 3 units. I don’t think Anthony Davis plays tonight. Line is Mavericks -2, I expect it to go higher.
