College Basketball Picks January 28th
Wright State -15.5 at IUPUI (O/U 158.5)
Wright State has found their groove in Horizon League play. The Raiders got out to a slow start but have rattled off two straight wins to climb within two games of the surprise leaders, Green Bay.
The Raiders head to IUPIU to face off with one of the worst teams in the conference. Although IUPUI is 2-9 in conference, they are improved from the last few seasons. The Jags have truly shown a pulse and are capable of playing some hoops.
By no means am I calling the upset, but I do see this as a letdown spot for Wright State. They are coming off an OT win on the road and have a revenge game against Youngstown ahead. Give me the Home Jags.
The Pick: IUPUI +15.5
Purdue -10.5 at Rutgers (O/U 140.5)
The Scarlet Knights will be a popular pick tomorrow. During the Steve Pikiell Era, the Knights have been a problem at home. Purdue knows that very well, they have not faired well at the RAC.
Clearly, this Purdue team remembers losing to Rutgers multiple times and had revenge on their mind. Road games are always a tough ask in the Big Ten, but this is a business trip for the Boiler Makers.
They have the better squad from top to bottom and are going to take care of business this afternoon. Big Cliff has not lived up to expectations this season, and Zach Edey should have his way down low.
The Pick: Purdue -10.5
