Top College Basketball Betting Odds, Picks & Predictions: Tuesday, January 10 (2022)

Jan 10, 2023 - 11:29 AM

The Houston Cougars were anointed as the No. 1 team in the AP poll for the second time this season, receiving 34 of the 60 first place votes. The most eye-popping thing about the AP poll was Kansas State going from unranked to 11th, despite being picked to finish last in the Big 12 this year. The Wildcats play their first game as a ranked team this season today when hosting Oklahoma State.

Here are our best bets for Tuesday’s college basketball action.

Top College Basketball Betting Odds, Picks & Predictions: Tuesday, January 10th (2022)

Dayton vs. Fordham O/U

Since December 10, Dayton has been one of the best defensive teams in the country. The Flyers have allowed 53.2 points per game in that span, with no team topping 57 points. Meanwhile, Fordham has regressed slightly with two losses in three games after a 12-1 start and has made 16 of its last 79 3-point attempts over the previous three games.

Fordham is led by Darius Quisenberry (17.8 points), who is one of two Rams averaging double digits and has scored in double figures in 14 of 15 games. However, Dayton forced him into 4-for-16 shooting last year, his second-worst shooting percentage in any game where he played more than 30 minutes.

The Under is 5-1 in Dayton’s previous six road games, and has cashed in Fordham’s last four games against teams with a winning record.

Bet: Dayton-Fordham Under 130 (-110 at DraftKings) 

Butler vs. St. John’s Spread

St. John’s enters this game amid a five-game losing streak, but Butler is arguably the best matchup in league play for the Red Storm, given their inability to consistently make jump shots. The Red Storm are making just 31.6% of their 3-point attempts as a whole this season (266th), but that is not as much of a concern against a Butler team that ranks in the top ten in allowing the most percentage of opponents’ points inside the arc (59.9%). Conversely, St. John’s gets 62.2% of its points (third-most) from 2-point range and should attack the rim relentlessly tonight. And from a long-range shooting perspective, perhaps the rest of the team can feed off of Andre Curbelo, who has made nine of his last 17 3-point attempts after struggling with five makes in 18 attempts at the start of the losing streak.

The home team is 14-3 ATS in the previous 17 meetings between these teams, and the favorite has cashed in the last five.

Bet: St. John’s -4.5 (-110 at DraftKings)

Illinois vs. Nebraska Spread

There are stark differences between the home/road splits for Illinois and Nebraska, which has us believing that a Cornhuskers home upset is possible. The Fighting Illini lost their two true road games to Maryland and Northwestern by a combined 18 points. Conversely, Nebraska held Iowa to a season-low 50 points in its last home game (12 points lower than the Hawkeyes’ season-low before that) and took No. 1 Purdue to overtime at home in mid-December.

Illinois is still figuring out a rotation, just one game removed from freshman point guard Skyy Clark leaving the team. And Nebraska’s Derrick Walker is shooting 62.4% from the floor this season. He should expose an Illinois interior defense that was just torched for 20 points by Wisconsin’s Steven Crowl, his second-highest scoring output of the season.

The home team is 6-1 ATS in the previous seven meetings between these teams, and the underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five.

Bet: Nebraska +3 (-110 at DraftKings)
