Must Bet College Basketball Games Feb 11-17
#24 Maryland at #7 Michigan
When: Saturday, Feb. 16 at 12:00 pm ET
Where: Crisler Center, Ann Arbor, MI
Analysis: The Maryland Terrapins are 2-3 straight up in their last 5. They’ve also gone 2-3 against the spread in those last 5 games. The Terrapins are a very good 6-2 ATS in their away games this season, though.
Although Maryland’s been great ATS in away games this season, they could find it difficult versus the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday. Still, one of the favorites to win the National Championship, Michigan has been on fire both SU and ATS.
The Wolverines are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last 5. They’ve gone 4-1 ATS in their last 5 at home. Maryland will put up a fight but Michigan should prevail both on the moneyline and against the spread.
NC State at #2 Duke
When: Saturday, Feb. 16 at 6:00 pm ET
Where: Cameron Indoor Stadium, Durham, NC
Analysis: Duke took on Virginia in what many believed was the biggest game of the year so far. Not only did Duke win SU, they pummeled UVA 81-71. The Blue Devils are now 21-2 SU and 15-8 ATS.
NC State has a winning 4-3 ATS road record, but they’re 3-7 ATS in their last 10. The Wolfpack will fight for about 10 minutes in this one before Duke, like they did in the 91-61 beat down of St. John’s, takes over.
The Blue Devils should cover no matter what the spread is.
#1 Tennessee at #5 Kentucky
When: Saturday, Feb. 16 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: Rupp Arena, Lexington, KY
Analysis: Saturday’s top matchup has Tennessee heading to Rupp Arena to battle the Kentucky Wildcats. Tennessee remains number one after beating Missouri 71-60 and Florida 73-61 this past week. The Volunteers have a 13-8-1 overall ATS record. They’re better against the spread in away games, going 5-1 ATS this season.
Kentucky has a 14-9 overall ATS record. They’re 7-6 ATS in their home games this season. That doesn’t tell the whole story, though. The Wildcats have been on an incredible run, going 8-0 ATS in their last 8.
UK will take some wind out of Tennessee’s sales on Saturday with a win and cover.
