Free NCAA Pick Saturday

#642 Towson -2.5 over NC-Wilmington 1:00 PM CT

Towson owns a lousy 5-10 record this season but they have played one home game in more than a month spanning the past eight games. That was a competitive loss to a Charleston squad that rates as one of the top CAA squads. Now 1-2 in conference play this home date is a critical game for a Tigers team that won 18 games last season.

Towson lost in overtime in the last meeting between these teams in Wilmington last January but the Tigers won by 18 in the last home meeting in this series. NC-Wilmington won just 11 games last season and hasn’t improved its pace so far this year with a 5-10 mark. One of those wins came Thursday night in double-OT at James Madison, snapping a six-game slide. The Seahawks are now playing a sixth road game in the past seven games for a daunting spot on the schedule two days after a double-OT game.

Free NCAA Pick Wednesday

#534 Washington PK over Minnesota 5:30 PM CT

The Gophers are 4-0 this season but the schedule has been suspect. Beating Utah and Texas A&M sounds impressive but both of those programs could be in down seasons and both contests were close. Minnesota has shot nearly 41 percent from 3-point range this season which won’t be sustainable as the competition heats up. This is a team with two freshman starters surrounding the veterans and there isn’t great depth on this squad now facing a third game in four days in Vancouver.

Washington’s only loss this season came vs. an Auburn team that didn’t look out of place vs. top ranked Duke yesterday. The 4-1 Huskies have played top 100 teams in four of five games and while the margins of victory haven’t been overwhelming this is a deliberately-paced squad that leads with defense.

[displayProduct type=”carousel” sort=”newness” productnamecolor=”#ffffff” pricecolor=”#ffffff” textcolor=”#ffffff” carousel=image,title,price,button,excerpt]

The Huskies have a massive edge in free throw shooting in this matchup and will be playing much closer to home. In his first season with Washington the Huskies improved from 9 wins to 21 wins for Mike Hopkins and all five starters from last season are back on the roster this season plus sophomore Hameir Wright who has grown into a starting role after coming off the bench last season.

Free NCAA Pick Friday

#750 Florida Atlantic +8.5 over Georgia Southern 4:00 PM CT (@Bahamas) 

Florida Atlantic finished just 12-19 last season going only 6-12 in Conference USA though they did play most of the top teams in the conference tough. This was one of the worst shooting teams in the nation last season but the roster has turned over substantially for new head coach Dusty May. Two freshmen have earned starting roles but Mississippi State transfer Xavian Stapleton has been the big addition to key instant improvement for the Owls.

[displayProduct type=”carousel” sort=”newness” productnamecolor=”#ffffff” pricecolor=”#ffffff” textcolor=”#ffffff” carousel=image,title,price,button,excerpt]

Florida Atlantic is 2-0 this season and Sunday’s win over UCF was a notable result with an 80-79 win in Orlando. The offensive numbers are improved and this could be a team that makes a bit of noise in Conference USA and in this Bahamas tournament. Georgia Southern plays very quickly but has struggled defensively, allowing very strong outside shooting numbers in a 2-0 start to the season. The Eagles have been a bad free throw shooting team despite the many opportunities at the line and in Statesboro on Tuesday Georgia Southern struggled to pull away from George Mason in a high-scoring win.

[displayProduct type=”carousel” sort=”nameaz” productnamecolor=”#ffffff” pricecolor=”#ffffff” textcolor=”#ffffff” carousel=image,title,price,button,excerpt]

The turnaround to a Friday game in the Bahamas makes for a daunting scheduling spot as well to give an advantage to the Owls. The Eagles have three returning senior starters but also lost four senior contributors from last season’s 21-12 squad for Mark Byington. FAU should have a significant size edge in this game with three 6’7” starters vs. a Georgia Southern team that plays one of the smallest lineups in the country. The win over UCF doesn’t look like a fluke as Florida Atlantic should be considered an improved team that is a threat for an upset in this afternoon Showcase game.

Free NCAA Pick Thursday

#517 Fresno State +10.5 over TCU 8:00 PM CT

Fresno State is one of the last programs to play a division I game, as they defeated Alaska-Anchorage on November 6 and this is the only game on the early season slate until November 22. The Bulldogs went 21-11 last season and only once all season did Fresno State lose by more than 12 points. Two senior starters are gone for Fresno State and new head coach Justin Hutson should have a lot to work with for another competitive season.

[displayProduct type=”carousel” sort=”newness” productnamecolor=”#ffffff” pricecolor=”#ffffff” textcolor=”#ffffff” carousel=image,title,price,button,excerpt]

TCU won 21 games under Jamie Dixon last season but the 12-0 start featured one top 50 win. Two frontcourt seniors are now gone including Vladimir Brodziansky who was one of the top players in the Big XII last season. Jaylen Fisher also had to have another knee surgery and will miss the early part of the season. TCU has struggled in a light early season schedule beating Cal-State Bakersfield by just five points and beating Oral Roberts by just 17.

[displayProduct type=”carousel” sort=”nameaz” productnamecolor=”#ffffff” pricecolor=”#ffffff” textcolor=”#ffffff” carousel=image,title,price,button,excerpt]

This is a very young group with TCU playing four freshmen in the early season eight-man rotation and turnovers have been a big issue for the offense. TCU has shot 66 percent from the line so far this season as points will be left off the board for the Frogs tonight laying a double-digit spread despite a big decline in offensive effectiveness so far this season. The Bulldogs have three senior starters for a big experience edge and a lot is going to be poured into this big opportunity for Fresno State and the first big game for Hutson leading the program.

Free NCAA Pick Wednesday

#749 Northern Arizona +8 over Nebraska-Omaha 7:00 PM CT

After a strong 2016-17 season Nebraska-Omaha fell off a cliff last season finishing 9-22. The Mavericks were one of the worst defensive teams in the nation and didn’t shoot well enough to keep pace with its fast tempo. This year’s team hasn’t looked much more promising, allowing 104 points in the opener at Minnesota before beating division III Buena Vista on Friday. Laying points with the Mavericks is a big risk and this Friday Nebraska-Omaha has a prominent non-conference game with Colorado up next.

[displayProduct type=”carousel” sort=”nameaz” productnamecolor=”#ffffff” pricecolor=”#ffffff” textcolor=”#ffffff” carousel=image,title,price,button,excerpt]

Northern Arizona was just 5-27 last season but the Lumberjacks took on a grueling non-conference schedule with a really young team that featured only one senior on the roster. This year’s team has some experience plus freshman Cameron Shelton who has made an immediate impact as a starter. There is good size and depth on the roster and the 15-point win over Jacksonville in the opener was a very positive sign of progress.

[displayProduct type=”carousel” sort=”newness” productnamecolor=”#ffffff” pricecolor=”#ffffff” textcolor=”#ffffff” carousel=image,title,price,button,excerpt]

Losing by 16 at South Dakota is certainly excusable and that was a three-point game in the second half for a closer contest than the final score. There appears to be clear improvement in Flagstaff this season and this is a lot of points considering how easily most foes have scored on Nebraska-Omaha.
