Free NCAA Basketball Picks: NCAA Basketball Best Bets and Money Line Selections For 1/24/22

First things first. The good news is we are continuing our good fortune betting the Money Line. We went 11-1 on Monday and that padded our record to 173-38 (82%). However, the Best Bet turned out to be the worst bet, as San Diego State led big from start to finish, and covered a 10.5-point spread easily against UNLV. That lowered our Best Bet of the Day record to 20-12. There are a bunch of games tonight and The only downside of the weekend was our Best Bet yesterday. Indiana was playing at home, where they have been unbeatable, against an 8-7 Michigan team. The spread was 3.5 for Indiana at home and, while I knew Michigan had talent, I didn’t see an 80-62 victory for the Wolverines. That loss dropped our Best Bet of the Day record to 20-11. Tonight, we have some interesting matchups so let’s see if we can keep this hot streak going..

Papa Dudes Best Bet for College Basketball Today

UNLV 11-8 at San Diego State 10-4 (-10.5): The Aztecs beat me on Saturday when they lost to Boise State at home while only scoring 37 points. UNLV is in a win-one, lose-one pattern and haven’t shown much consistency. I’m going with logic on this one figuring the game is going to be close because of the lack of offense that San Diego State usually has. I think they win; but fail to cover.
