Before making any Central Michigan vs. Xavier picks, you NEED to check out the college basketball predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every Division I college basketball game 10,000 times. Over the past five-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated an impressive profit of almost $2,100 for $100 players on its top-rated college basketball picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows the Musketeers have five players averaging nine or more points, including redshirt senior Nate Johnson. In six games played, Johnson is averaging 13 points, four rebounds, 1.2 assists and one steal per game. He is connecting on 50.9 percent of his field goals, including 44.4 percent from 3-point range, and is a 66.7 percent free throw shooter. Johnson, who missed the last five games last season due to a left shin injury, was among the national leaders in 3-point shooting before being shut down.

The model also knows the Chippewas aren't afraid to play a tough schedule and have lost to two Top-10 teams in just over a week, dropping a 107-54 decision to Gonzaga, which is No. 3, and 85-57 to No. 9 Kentucky. Senior transfer guard Jermaine Jackson Jr. leads the team, averaging 13.2 points, 3.3 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game. Jackson played and started 15 games at Long Island University last season, ranking third on the team in scoring at 15 points per game.
