CBB | UTEP 72 @ Middle Tenn. 84 | 02/03 | 2:00 AM UTC

Middle Tenn. -200

WIN

ANALYSIS: KenPom ranks Middle Tennessee at No. 121 in the nation and UTEP at 174. The Blue Raiders were completely dominant at the Glass House last season and still a very solid 7-2 there this year. UTEP is 1-7 on the road. MT's Teafale Lenard, Jr., is 23rd in the country in blocked shots with 43, 27th in blocks per game with 1.95 and 92nd in steals per game at 1.77. He has multiple blocks in five straight games. Middle Tennessee beat UTEP 77-59 in Murfreesboro last year and then 66-59 in the C-USA Tournament.

NBA | Miami 104 @ New York 106 | 02/03 | 12:30 AM UTC

Miami -145

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Here's that new Heat number (up from -130) per previous pick I mentioned with the Knicks late scratching Jalen Brunson. I'm actually surprised it hasn't gotten a bit higher. The under 213 looks kinda good now, too.

+1166 26-10 IN LAST 36 NY ML PICKS

CBB | FAU 77 @ UAB 86 | 02/03 | 12:00 AM UTC

UAB -125

WIN

ANALYSIS: This is the game of the night as FAU puts its 20-game winning streak on the line. I think it ends with UAB expecting one of the nation's leading scorers, "Jelly" Walker, back from injury. UAB nearly won at FAU earlier this year when Walker was in the lineup. Look, Florida Atlantic has to lose at some point and this stands out like a sore thumb.
