College Basketball Thursday January 16th Predictions – Thank You Minnesota

Sportsologists.com

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

32-26-1 this season up 18.08 units

Full Disclosure: I am betting a little heavier tonight because I win about 20 units on a parlay if Conor McGregor wins his fight this weekend. My account is already up above average this year, so feel like I have a little wiggle room. The William & Mary play would still be big, but the other plays would be smaller if I wasn’t winning so much. Thank you for understanding.

William & Mary +1.5 at -110 for 6 units. Delaware are 6-1 at home, but they haven’t played anybody. The Tribe will be the toughest team Joe Flacco’s former school have faced at home this season. William & Mary are 12-5 ATS this season and they are a big part of the reason I am up over 18 units this season. Delaware does have a couple big men that can at least match the Tribe’s size downlow… but Nate Darling, Delaware’s best player, has been in a small slump over his last 3 games. I’ve said it about 7 times this year on my posts, but William & Mary’s ability to get easy buckets will get them the win/cover. If they can limit Nate Darling, they will win even easier. I like one of the only teams to never make a NCAA tourney to get a win on the road tonight.

Pepperdine -7 at -110 for 3 units. I thought Pepperdine was going to be a lot better than 8-9 at this point in the season. The Edwards Brothers and Colbey Ross know they have to start turning it on if they want to make a post-season tournament. Loyola are 1-5 on the road. Pepperdine are better than their record, I am not sure Loyola are. The Wave take this one by double-digits.

Oregon -9.5 at -110 for 3 units. System play. The system is not that advanced, but the gist of it is road team favored by between 8-10 with a great guard against a team on a losing streak. There are a few more variables, but this is the only play on the board that meets the requirements. The System is 5-2 this season.

Colorado at -135 for 3 units. Colorado beat ASU by 10 earlier this season. Colorado has won against Dayton and Oregon on their recent winning streak. I would make this a huge play, but I am a little worried about the line not being closer to -200 like I thought it would be. Not going to overthink, still going to play as I think Colorado wins by 5 to 8 points… just not going to go Antonio Brown crazy on it.
