College Basketball Picks January 3rd
California at Arizona State (-2.5) (O/U 146.5)
These two teams have been heading in the opposite direction after the first month of the season. Arizona State has serious shooting issues, while Cal has finally been playing as a team.
When ASU is at there best, they are seriously a dangerous bunch and can hang with a ton of teams. They are coming off a game in which they got outclassed by a surging Stanford team.
On the other hand, Cal got absolutely killed by Arizona, which is not saying much. I expect both teams to come out with some vengeance and feed off of each other.
Both can score, and this can turn into a track meet. We will take a look at the total in this one.
The Pick: Over
Oklahoma (-1.5) at UCF (O/U 134)
UCF has more than held their own in their initial season in The Big 12. 3-5 does not seem like much, but wins over Kansas and Texas are extremely impressive. Besides that, they have been competitive in the majority of their games.
Oklahoma is currently in the top 25, but they have not impressed me much. Their formula is defense, which is great, but I don’t love that style for winning the big ones.
UCF is coming off a hard-fought game against Baylor, who is a step above Oklahoma. I would expect Orlando to be rocking and lead The Knights to victory.
The Pick: UCF +1.5
