#19 Florida Atlantic vs UAB (-1.5, o/u 148.5)
Tipoff: 4:00 PM PST, CBSS
The Owls have been the best story of the entire season, and they haven’t lost since November. UAB might be favored here for a few reasons: The game is at home, and the Blazers pushed the Owls to the brink last time in an 88-86 final.
But, the Owls won’t let that happen again, and Jordan Walker – who was the Blazers’ leading scorer in the last meeting – is most likely out. Roll with Florida Atlantic and hammer the OVER.
Florida Atlantic +1.5 and OVER 148.5
Wisconsin vs Ohio State (-8.5, o/u 132.5)
Tipoff: 4:00 PM PST, FS1
Why are the Buckeyes favored so much? Who knows. Ohio State has just one win in the last eight games, although it came against a decent Iowa team.
The Badgers have one win in the last seven, so neither team is playing well right now. But Ohio State being this big of a favorite – yes, it’s a home game – is surprising. Take the Badgers here to beat the spread, although Ohio State might end up getting the victory anyways.
Oregon State at Arizona State (-12.5, o/u129.5)
Tipoff: 5:00 PM PST, Pac-12
Here we go. Do you want to have some fun Thursday night?
The Beavers are massive underdogs on the road in Tempe, and it’s obvious. The Beavers have just nine wins all year and are toward the bottom of the Pac-12. However, Arizona State has been in a slump lately.
The Sun Devils have lost four in a row and just fell to Washington State (a sub-.500 team) by 17. Their hopes of an NCAA Tournament bid are all but over, and Oregon State walks into Tempe and gets a massive upset.
After all, it’s the West Coast.
