Today’s Best College Basketball Bets

Here are my best bets for today’s men’s college basketball slate.

Michigan State at Indiana 

In a big game for these two programs and their tournament aspirations, Assembly Hall should be bumping.

There are injury concerns for both teams with Malik Hall out for Michigan State and Xavier Johnson and Race Thompson out for Indiana. With both teams playing out with key pieces, Michigan State seems to have adjusted a bit better, ranking 60th in the Haslametrics momentum metric.

Where the Spartans struggle though is on the road. With Indiana ranking 11th in the home-court advantage metric, I trust home-court advantage to play out strongly tonight. Indiana excels on both sides of the court, ranking 10th in 2pt scoring. Their size might be too much for the Spartans to handle down low. The Hoosiers also rank 34th in second-chance conversion percentage, so if they lack in efficiency they can still score. 

It would be impossible to go against the Hoosiers at home here.   

Play: Indiana -4.5 (-110)

Memphis at Cincinnati

In another game with injury concerns, the Tigers and Bearcats have both been playing shorthanded for a bit. With Memphis’ pace and bench minutes, I see them with the advantage here. 

Cincinnati takes care of the ball well but Memphis forces turnovers at the 37th-highest rate in the nation and the pace of play might be a bit much for Cincinnati to keep up with. The Bearcats allow 55 percent of the opponent’s points to come from inside the arc, where Memphis does a lot of its scoring.   

The Tigers’ experience with Kendric Davis and DeAndre Williams should shine too with the one-two punch they offer. I simply trust the Tigers’ surprising consistency here and would sprinkle money on their money line as well. 

Play: Memphis +3 (-110)
