Gambling Corner – January 12, 2021

It has been a struggle but I dug into the games tonight and have a good three pack for you.

Jake’s Picks

Wisconsin +3.5 vs Michigan
7:00 PM

ESPN

We’ll start with the big game of the night on the hardwood. A top ten matchup in the Big Ten seems to be a weekly occurrence now. Michigan is the last unbeaten team in the conference and has a few good wins already. Wisconsin has looked shaky at times this year but this is the type of game they want to play in. It’s going to be a battle down low on both ends of the court. I think both sets of forwards will work them into fatigue and that will open up a spot for D’Mitrik Trice to take over late. This should be the game of the night and there is too much value there for Wisconsin to pass up on it.

Kansas/Oklahoma State over 145.5

Some may say I’m crazy for taking a Kansas over when they only managed 63 points on Saturday. Oklahoma was dealing with COVID issues so they were missing their best player. I think Kansas had a rough night and managed to do just enough to get out of that game alive. Oklahoma State loves to play fast so I think this game gets up and down quick. The total is high so Vegas definitely agrees with me that this should be high scoring. I think it finishes around 80-74 so theres around 8 points of value there.

Pacers/Warriors over 228.5
7:00 PM
FSFL, FSWI

The Warriors love to play fast. Whether they are making shots or not, they are gonna still put up splash brother level of shot attempts. They currently sit at 2nd in the league in pace. The Pacers have also not done a great job the last couple games defending, giving up at least 125 in each of their last two games. On the Pacers end, they are one of the more efficient teams in the league. They rank 4th in the league in shooting percentage and 2nd when they’re on the road. So if this gets into the Warriors pace of game and they still are able to make shots at that level, this over is easy.
