Max's Past Picks

E. Washington 65 @ Montana St. 69 | 01/28 | 2:00 AM UTC

E. Washington +7


ANALYSIS: The Eagles have been awesome away from home as they are 7-4 SU and 9-2 ATS away from home. The Bobcats are a good team but this is too many points for them to be laying against such a good road team. The Eagles are 6-0 SU and ATS in their last six games against the Bobcats. The Eagles should be able to keep this game close and cover this spread.

+477 18-12-2 IN LAST 32 CBB PICKS

East Carolina 54 @ Memphis 71 | 01/28 | 2:00 AM UTC

East Carolina +12


ANALYSIS: Fading the Tigers in this spot. They are 0-6 ATS in their last six games, including three straight up losses as favorites. When these teams played 12 days ago, the Pirates won by one point as seven point underdogs. The Tigers have been hit with the injury bug as they are missing their two leading scorers. The Pirates are live to win this game outright so I will gladly take this many points.

Oral Roberts 100 @ Neb.-Omaha 88 | 01/28 | 1:00 AM UTC

Oral Roberts -13.5


ANALYSIS: This will be the second meeting between these two teams. In the first meeting, the Golden Eagles won by 45. The Golden Eagles are 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games, including 4-1 ATS in their last five road games. The Mavericks have looked terrible in their last two games as they have lost both by 30 points or more. The Golden Eagles offense should be able to score at will and easily cover this spread.

+477 18-12-2 IN LAST 32 CBB PICKS

Hofstra 76 @ Charleston 73 | 01/28 | 12:00 AM UTC

Hofstra -2.5


ANALYSIS: The Pride have been great ATS as they are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 games, including 3-1 ATS in their last four games as a favorite. On the other side, the Cougars are 2-4 SU and 1-5 ATS in their last six games, including 0-4 ATS at home. The Pride have covered five straight games against the Cougars. Kenpom ranks the Pride 83 spots ahead of the Cougars. The Pride will be able to handle the pace of the Cougars and cover this spread.

+477 18-12-2 IN LAST 32 CBB PICKS

Middle Tenn. 81 @ Marshall 79 | 01/28 | 12:00 AM UTC

Middle Tenn. +2.5


ANALYSIS: This spread doesn’t make a lot of sense. The Blue Raiders are 10-2-1 ATS in their last 13 games while the Thundering Herd are 0-9 SU and ATS in their last nine games which include six conference games. Kenpom ranks the Blue Raiders 81 spots ahead of the Herd. The wrong team is favored here. The Blue Raiders should easily be able to handle the Herd.
