College Basketball Picks for 2/4/23
2:00 PM EST
Louisville +5.5 over Florida State (win)
Florida State is a struggling basketball team that needs a better bench. Louisville finally got themselves a conference win the other night. Jae’Lyn Withers had a heck of a night against Georgia Tech, and I look for them to carry that momentum over against a Seminoles team that is less talented than we are used to seeing. I like the home underdog in this situation. Take Louisville.

Boston College +3.5 over Syracuse (loss)
Syracuse won the previous matchup last month in their building, but the Eagles did not have a healthy Quinten Post at full strength. Post is a size mismatch nightmare for teams and will get easy buckets. Boston College has two good and very experienced guards, Zackery and Ashton-Langford. Jim Boeheim misses having his sons on the team, and they could be better than last year’s team. The Eagles can hang out at home. Take Boston College.
