Free NCAA College Basketball Picks and Money Line Selections for 1/22/22

It was a very average night for us as there weren’t very many games and most of them were difficult. For the 2nd night in a row we used our Best Bet on a team from the Mountain West and it went down to the wire, but we came up short. That dropped our BEST BET OF THE DAY record to 18-10 for the season. We went 5-3 betting the Money Line, and we will go into this huge Saturday schedule of games with a record of 131-32 in that category. Let’s have a great day today.

Papa Dudes Best Bet for College Basketball Today

Princeton 14-3 (-2.5) at Dartmouth 4-11: Doesn’t it make sense to take a team with a 14-3 record over a team that is 4-11? Especially, when the spread is that small. Vegas knows what they are doing so the line scares me a lot. What do they know that I don’t? Still, if I lose this one, I’m not going to worry about it, because this one jumped off the page at me when I saw it.

PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Princeton -2.5

Vanderbilt 10-8 at Florida 11-6 (-6): These two teams are trending in the wrong direction. Vandy is coming a tough loss to arch rival Tennessee at home and Gainesville is a tough place to bounce back after a loss like that. Meanwhile, the Gators won a hard fought game over Mississippi State and need to get some wins to improve their chances to make the NCAA tournament. Both teams have injury problems but I am going with the Gators in this one.
