Tim's Past Picks

Texas Tech 79 @ Texas 77 | 01/14 | 2:00 AM UTC

Texas Tech +110


ANALYSIS: This game has letdown written all over it for the Longhorns after an emotional win at West Virginia on Saturday. The line is screaming letdown with Texas only a two-point favorite. Texas Tech is surrendering only 58.0 points per game, and its backcourt is loaded with Kyler Edwards and Mac McClung. Take the Texas Tech moneyline.

+475 9-4 IN LAST 13 CBB PICKS

Loyola-Chi. 71 @ Indiana St. 76 | 01/10 | 11:30 PM UTC

Indiana St. +8


ANALYSIS: Loyola was supposed to host undefeated and soon-to-be-ranked Drake in Chicago until the Bulldogs got shut down due to COVID-19. Now the Ramblers head to Terre Haute, Ind., where I called this matchup last season as Indiana State rolled to an easy win. Way, way, way too many points here. This game should be pick'em. Major edge to the Sycamores.

+475 9-4 IN LAST 13 CBB PICKS

Nevada 67 @ San Diego St 69 | 01/10 | 2:00 AM UTC

San Diego St -11


ANALYSIS: Game 1 between these schools was much closer than anticipated (a five point San Diego State win on Thursday). I know Aztecs coach Brian Dutcher figured out yesterday that Nevada is a two-player team: Grant Sherfield and Desmond Cambridge Jr. Stop those two, and this is a 20-point stroll.

+475 9-4 IN LAST 13 CBB PICKS

Orlando 98 @ Dallas 112 | 01/10 | 1:30 AM UTC

Orlando +6


ANALYSIS: Orlando lost by a 1,000 points last night in Houston. Saturday's game is a bounce-back type of game against a quality opponent in the Mavs, who are coming off an emotional overtime win over Denver. Too many points here; take the dog.


San Antonio 125 @ Minnesota 122 | 01/10 | 1:00 AM UTC

San Antonio -5


ANALYSIS: I have found the absolute worst team in the NBA: It’s Minnesota without Karl-Anthony Towns. I’d lay 10 here. Spurs roll.
