Free Picks: NCAA College Basketball Best Bets and Money LIne Selections For 1/20/22

It was another exciting night of sweating out a multitude of close games in College Hoops last night. Luckily, the ball continued to bounce our way and we came out on top of almost all of the nail biters we put money on. Our Best Bet was Wake Forest (-2.5) at Georgia Tech and they made it easy on us with an 80-64 victory. That win raised our Best Bet of the Day record to 18-7 which is padding the bank account. Our Money Line suggestions went 14-3 and that improved our record to 113-36 so far. There are a lot of games to sift through for tonight and let’s see if our good fortune can stretch into another night.

Boise State 13-4 at Utah State 10-8 (-1): I must admit I am strictly betting this slim margin of a spread. Based on the two team’s records and strength of schedule, this should be a very close game. The Broncos probably should be favored as they have won 10 in a row including a win at Washington State and home wins over Santa Clara and Fresno State. On the other hand, the Aggies are struggling having lost their last three conference games, albeit against really good opponents. But, all three games went down to the wire and could have been wins. I’m playing the law of averages here and going with the home team turning it around and winning a close one on their home floor.
