Saturday Night College Basketball Picks
Let's look at the Saturday Night College Basketball Picks including the game between the Virginia Tech Hokies and Duke Blue Devils. Check out the latest Saturday Night College Basketball Picks today.

It was back to stinking the joint up with Saturday night college basketball picks this past week after posting a 1-2 ATS tally against the linemakers at online sportsbooks. The lone ticket cash proved to be the Colorado Buffaloes who bounced back from their tough loss in Eugene by taking their frustrations out on the Oregon State Beavers in Corvallis. Thank you Tyler Bey for going HAM! The pair of defeats came with the DePaul Blue Demons and Stanford Cardinal. Creighton buried the former right from the outset, while the latter still gave Arizona all it could ask for and more even with Da Silva out of the equation before ultimately going down in defeat and failing to cover the closing college basketball odds. Let’s see if we can finally churn out a winning card on Saturday night - Are you with me?!

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Duke Blue Devils Prediction

The Dookies just got their lunch handed to them by an NC State Wolfpack squad that was on the outside looking into the NCAA Tournament before the game tipped off. After dropping 94 points on Notre Dame its most recent time out and also hanging 70 on Florida State the game prior, Coach K was forced to sit and watch in disgust as his players shot a wretched 38 percent and connected on just 4 of 17 3-point shots in the ugly 88-66 beat down that saw the team grossly fail to cover as 6-point favorites. Making things all the more ugly were the 12 missed free throws! If ever there was a bounceback spot for the Blue Devils to take advantage of, this is it! The Hokies just got done participating in a triple overtime game against Miami in which they lost, and already got beat by Duke 77-63 as 6.5-point home underdogs back on December 6. Duke shot 48 percent from the field in that game and also forced 14 turnovers. Though they’ll be laying a ton of chalk, I expect this matchup to serve as no less than a pristine bounceback spot that will be taken advantage of to its fullest – lay the chalk and be one with the Cameron Crazies!

Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Ole Miss Rebels Prediction

The under has cashed in each of the last four times these SEC rivals crossed paths against one another on the hardwood. I don’t foresee that being the case on Saturday night when Nate Oats kids hit the highway for Oxford in hopes of getting back on track after laying an egg in a pristine hangover spot versus Texas A&M in a game they lost outright as 11-point favorites. In playing to the No. 3 ranked tempo in the land, it comes with little surprise to see the over being a lucrative investment in Crimson Tide games this season (16-9-1). Though the Rebels prefer to play at a slower pace (No. 194), it’s got one of the premiere scoring guards in the country running the offense in Breein Tyree who enters this tilt having gone for 29, 19, 40, 23 and 38 points in his last five games. As efficient Bama has been offensively (No. 38), it’s left much to be desired at the other end of the court. That’s something the Rebels should be eager to take advantage of in hopes of putting an end to their current two-game losing streak – hit the over!

Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. BYU Cougars Prediction

The Zags took the Cougars out behind the woodshed and served up an ugly 92-69 beating as 13-point favorites when these WCC rivals collided in “The Kennel” back on January 18. The triumph moved Mark Few’s troops to 9-1 SU and 6-2-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings as well as 5-0 ATS in each of the last five. Think TJ Haws and Yoeli Childs will be up for this one? It was a rhetorical question silly, I know the answer! Regardless, I’m thinking this is the spot Gonzaga goes down in defeat. Even if it does, it’s still going to win the regular season title. On top of that, the Zags would be doing their conference a solid by giving another member a huge resume building win for the selection committee to drool over should BYU ultimately be on the cut line come March. The Cougars still went on to shoot 51 percent from the field in the first go round even though it never had a shot to make a game of it in the second half once the Bulldogs started pulling way. Keep in mind, Childs didn’t suit up for that one but he’ll be in attendance provided nothing goes down Thursday night against Santa Clara. I expect BYU to be in this one all the way through with the Zags simply going through the motions – take the points and sprinkle some beer money on the $-Line!
