Swept the college basketball board the last time out. “If you keep winning, they will come.” – Kevin Costner circa 1989 – Michael Scott

Kentucky -5.5 at -110 for 3 units. The Gamecocks have lost 3 in a row since beating Virginia. They lost to Stetson (not the hats). If you knew Stetson was in Florida, congrats. You win nothing. Kentucky has looked solid since their Ohio State loss. Hagans, Maxey, Quickley, and Richards can all carry the team over stretches of the game. Kentucky will be able to make more shots and create more possessions, which are my two favorite stats for double digit win.

Minnesota at -140 for 3 units.  A home team with a worse record as a favorite? Yes. Give me. Daniel Oturo should be able to do what he wants tonight. Minnesota’s guards have been in a shooting slump, but they can’t get worse. The floor is the floor. Alihan Demir should get some easy buckets with Penn State’s defensive focus being on Oturo. Penn State are only 11-47 from deep over the past two games. Two teams struggling to shoot, so take the team at home that will get more points in the paint.
