CBB | West Virginia 72 @ TCU 76 | 02/01 | 2:00 AM UTC

TCU -130

WIN

ANALYSIS: Many times this season I have faded a team without its leading scorer and that team still won. Just don't understand. So, let's see if this opposites thing works. TCU is without leading scorer Mike Miles (18.1 ppg) but it appears that fellow injured player Eddie Lampkin (7.7 ppg, 6.8 rpg) is going to give it a go. If this was at West Virginia, I'd be all over the Mountaineers but they just aren't the same on the road. TCU is 10-2 at home.

CBB | Kansas St. 78 @ Kansas 90 | 02/01 | 1:00 AM UTC

Kansas -8.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: Kansas St. is 3-3 on the road this season. Since the first game against Kansas, the Wildcats only scored 70 or more points twice in their last six games. They’ve been giving up 77 points on the road this season. Over their last three games, they’re shooting 69.9 percent at the free-throw line with a shooting percentage of 43.6 percent. Kansas comes off a dominating performance at Kentucky looking for their revenge. At home, the Jayhawks are shooting it effectively at 54.3 percent and 86.5 percent at the free-throw line over their last three. I’m on Kansas.

CBB | Miss. St. 66 @ South Carolina 51 | 01/31 | 11:30 PM UTC

South Carolina +9.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: I held out hoping this would get to 10 points but guess not. South Carolina is pretty bad -- the women's team might beat the men's once in a while -- but I'm not sure Mississippi State should be giving nearly double digits on the road to anyone. The Bulldogs are very good defensively but awful shooting the ball, so they don't really blow anyone out when they do win, and MSU has dropped its past five SEC games. Overall, the Bulldogs have covered just five of their past 17 games. It at least should be a fired up student section as it's $1 hot dog night in Columbia! Why do I think many of those will be bought with pennies, nickels and dimes?

CBB | Boise St. 59 @ Air Force 52 | 02/01 | 2:00 AM UTC

Air Force +8

WIN

ANALYSIS: Air Force has been very competitive at home, allowing 64.3 points per game. Overall the Falcons hold opponents to 28.5 percent from beyond the arc -- that's 13th-best in the nation. Look for Boise State to win a tight one and for Air Force to extend its 12-4 ATS run.

NBA | L.A. Clippers 108 @ Chicago 103 | 02/01 | 1:00 AM UTC

OVER 226

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Chicago has scored 110 points, or more, in six of their last seven games. The LA Clippers have scored over 112 points in five of their last six games, in three of those games they scored 130+ points. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are probable for tonight’s game switch provides more scoring, along with a healthy Bulls squad. The two teams combined average 224 points per game and with this short line, could get some late game fouling to push this one over. I’m on the Over.

NHL | Los Angeles 4 @ Carolina 5 | 02/01 | 12:00 AM UTC

Carolina -210

WIN

ANALYSIS: Games right before the break are always tricky, but the Kings have been on the road since Jan. 21 and their players REALLY have to be looking forward to getting back home. They also remain without center Gabriel Vilardi (17G, 14A). Carolina has won six straight in the series, including 4-2 in LA earlier this season. The Canes (who do play again Wednesday) enter on a five-game winning streak and Sebastian Aho has seven goals in the past four. Frederik Andersen is 5-0 since returning from a lower-body injury and his .934 save percentage since Jan. 12 ranks fourth among all NHL goaltenders who have played at least five games during that time.

CBB | Clemson 54 @ Boston College 62 | 02/01 | 12:00 AM UTC

Clemson -4

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Clemson has won all five of its visits to Boston College and I like the Tigers to extend that streak and cover Tuesday. Chase Hunter (14.6 ppg, 4.2 apg) returned Saturday after missing three games with an ankle injury, helping the Tigers to their 10th win in 11 games. The Eagles' four ACC wins have come against teams below them in the standings. Look for the road team to improve to 5-0 ATS in the last five Clemson-Boston College matchups.
