Rutgers vs Indiana
8:00 PM EST
Rutgers -3.5 over Indiana (win)
Rutgers has played well against Indiana in recent matchups and tonight will honor 6 seniors on senior night. This is a physical basketball team that can keep a player like Trayce Jackson-Davis in check. Rutgers is the more experienced overall basketball team and really needs a win on their home court after losing two straight. Rutgers was in a similar slump the last time they played the Hoosiers and broke out of their slump with a nice win. Take Rutgers.

Southern Utah -12.5 over Northern Arizona (loss)
Northern Arizona is not a good basketball team and the only thing they really do well is not turn the ball over, but Southern Utah is a decent team at turning teams over. There is no other game on the board today where there is a greater statistical mismatch. This Thunderbirds team is a sleeper if they can win the Big Sky and get to the March Madness Tournament. Look for this game to be a blowout heading into the half time break. Take Southern Utah.

UNLV -7 over Fresno State (loss)
Fresno is a team that doesn’t do many things well. This team has a few athletes that can follow up misses with offensive rebounds, but they just can’t put the ball in the net. UNLV is a team that will crank up the three pointers and I just don’t think the Bulldogs are going to be able to keep pace in a game like this as their defense is not good enough to keep them in games and they just don’t bury many three balls. Look for Bryce Hamilton to put on a show tonight for the Rebels. Take UNLV.
