3 College Basketball Picks To Wager on January 24th 2013: UCLA, Virginia Tech and Ole Miss

January 24th, 2013

NCAA Basketball Picks: January 24th 2013

Pick: UCLA +9
The Bruins are showing value catching big points in this highly motivated spot. After suffering their first Pac-12 loss of the season Saturday against Oregon and further fueled by dropping both of last season’s meetings with Arizona, UCLA will have no problem leaving it all out on the floor tonight. Arizona has been overvalued in Pac-12 play and that remains the case here. The Wildcats are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 versus Pac-12 foes and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. In addition, UCLA is 10-1 ATS all-time as a road underdog of 6.5 to 9 points under coach Howland. Take the points. -Dave Price

Pick: Virginia Tech +5.5
Virginia Tech has had some ugly losses in the ACC, but they are coming off back-to-back wins and you can throw out the records when you have a big in-state rivalry matchup like this. The Hokies are 8-2 at home this season, while the Cavaliers are just 1-5 on the road. I’ll gladly take the points here, as I like Virginia Tech’s chances of winning this game outright. BET THE HOKIES! -Steve Janus

Pick: Mississippi -7.5
Line climbing here and Ol Miss at home here after beating the Vols back into the woodshed in the last game at Tennessee by 18. The key here is the Rebels offense which can score points at a torrid pace. At 82 points per game on the season, Ol Miss has a powerhouse offense against a defense in the Vols that has allowed a whopping 75 ppg their last 5 games. I also see no way that the Vols offense can trade points on the scoreboard here against a team allowing 57 ppg at home this season. A repeat of game1 in my opinion and worth the stretch at almost 8 points here. -Tony George
