Announcement: Morning Picks Can Be Found On My Twitter Account In The Box To The Left Of This Post. I Suggest You Also Follow Me @FantasyInsider3
  • Estoril Win or Draw
  • Any Other Result
  • Connecticut 3 Pointers
  • Napier+Boatright
  • Norfolk State Bison @ Howard Bison
For the first suggested pick of the night, we have two pretty bad college basketball teams going up against one another. Norfolk State enters 8-10 with a 5-8 road record, however they were able to hang in their against ranked Illinois on the road, and only ended up losing by 10. Also, they have won their last 2 games after losing 5 straight, and are actually 5-5 in their last 10. They do not play very good defense on the road, allowing 69.2 points. However, this may not be a factor as Howard plays unbelievably terrible offense, only scoring 54.7 points per game. Meanwhile, Norfolk State puts up 63.8 points per game while Howard allows only 51.3. Howard currently sits at 4-13 with a 3-2 home record, but they have only been able to win 3 of their last 10, the most recent loss coming at home to Hampton. Currently, the line is -4 in favor of Norfolk State, and I think they should pull this one out.

My Pick: Norfolk State Bison (Suggested Pick)
  • Orlando Magic
  • Chicago Bulls 
  • Memphis Grizzlies
  • Louisville First To 10 Points (Subject To Change)
  • Baylor Single Digit Loss or Win @ Kansas DD Win 
For the second suggested pick of the day, we have the #4th team in the nation going up against Baylor. Kansas enters 14-1, their only loss coming in a neutral site. Meanwhile, Baylor enters 11-4, with a 2-1 road record. In their last 10 games, they have played pretty well, winning 7 of 10. However, they played at Gonzaga 4 games ago, and they lost by 7 points. Kansas is a much better team than Gonzaga, so keep that in mind. At home, Kansas plays great offense, averaging 81.6 points per game while only allowing 60.9. Meanwhile, Baylor plays pretty good offense on the road, scoring 77.7 points per game while allowing 65.7. The line currently sits at -10 in favor of Kansas.

My Pick: Kansas DD Win (Suggested Pick)
Why: They are the better team here and will obviously win the game. However, Baylor has played teams worse than Kansas and almost lost by double digits. I think Kansas pulls this out by 10-15 points.
  • No Neither Team Scores 40
  • Jackson State Win or Single Digit Loss
  • 9 or More
  • 71 or Fewer
