We had a rough go of things on Thursday night, but we’re looking to get back on track with the consistency of conference play today. Here. We. Go.

Kentucky (-8) vs. Missouri

Tyrese Maxey against Mark Smith? Give me a break. Kentucky will walk past Missouri. They distribute the ball well. The only hiccup Kentucky may experience is Jeremiah Tilmon down in the post, but I expect Kentucky to move past that. Give me the Wildcats.

Pick: Kentucky -8

Penn State (-2.5) vs. Iowa

Penn State should have the edge here. Big Ten teams (outside of Wisconsin on Friday) rarely win on the road so far this season, especially in conference. I would expect that trend to continue here. Mike Watkins and Luka Garza align pretty evenly. That said, I would take the line as early as you can with the home favorite. Take the Nittany Lions.

Pick: Penn State -2.5

DePaul (-2.5) vs. Providence

This is a perfect spot to fade the Friars. Providence just killed Georgetown. Paul Reed and Charlie Moore should be an easy favorite. I would take this line as early as you can. DePaul will win, easily.

Pick: DePaul -2.5

There you have it. It’s one of the biggest Saturdays to bet hoops. Get your victories in now!
