College Basketball Free Picks

San Diego State (-7') at UNLV

By Stephen DeAngelo, Featured Handicapper

Went for the jugular on Saturday, releasing my first-ever 50 Dime play in college hoops. And of course I freaking nailed it, as West Virginia obliterated Missouri in the second half and rolled to a 23-point victory, nearly doubling the 12½-point spread.


With that, I improved to 15-6 in college basketball this season, which has netted 291 Dimes … I improved to 15-4 with my last 19 basketball plays (college and NBA), which has netted 361 Dimes … and I improved to 8-2 over the last 10 days, good for 233 Dimes.


Allow me to monetize those numbers for you:


If you wagered $50 per Dime on all 21 of my college hoops plays this season (including the six losers), you’re up $14,550.


If you wagered $50 per Dime on my last 19 basketball plays (including the four losers), you’re up $18,050.


And if you wagered $50 per Dime over the last 10 days, you’re up $11,650.


Not bad, eh?


Well, the bankroll building continues today with my 40 College Hoops Winner #5 of 7, my Basketball Winner #16 of 20 and my College Hoops winner #16 of 22 (and #12 of 15), as we head to the West Coast for a Pac-12 battle between UCLA and Oregon.


Guys, you see the insane results I’ve produced for you. It’s time to get that season pass and enjoy a first-class money-making journey aboard the D-Train!

How about that super easy 3♦ complimentary winner on USC on Saturday? I’m now on a 7-3 roll with basketball freebies. For Sunday’s, we’ll head back to the college hardwood and swallow the chalk with fourth-ranked San Diego State, which takes its unbeaten record to Vegas to battle UNLV.


Normally, I’m not a fan of laying a significant amount points with a road team, especially in a conference game. But San Diego State continues to prove with each passing game that its Top 5 ranking and 20-0 record are no fluke. Not only are the Aztecs a perfect 9-0 in conference play, but three of four victories came on the road—and all three were convincing: 79-57 at Colorado State, 77-68 at Utah State, 72-52 at Wyoming, 64-55 at Fresno State.


True, SDSU failed to get the cash in its last two outings, both at home—17-point win over Wyoming as a 22½-point favorite; 13-point win over Nevada as a 13½-point chalk. But the fact remains the Aztecs’ last 10 wins have come by at least nine points (including eight double-digit routs). In fact, only two opponents have lost to the Aztecs by fewer than nine points: BYU (76-71 home loss back on Nov. 9, the second game of the season) and San Jose State (a shockingly close 59-57 loss at SDSU on Dec. 8).


As for UNLV, it is definitely playing much better of late under first-year coach T.J. Otzelberger, going 7-2 in over the last nine contests. And the Runnin’ Rebels are a solid 6-2 in Mountain West play. But this is a different animal that they’re facing today in SDSU. And it’s not like the Rebels have thrived in the underdog role: Take out a 70-53 home upset of Utah State (as a 7-point pup), and UNLV is 1-7 SU and 2-6 ATS when catching points this season.


Finally, the Aztecs have completely owned this rivalry of late, winning nine of the last 10 meetings (including the last four in a row) while going 7-1-2 ATS (4-0 ATS in the last four).


San Diego State (-8) at UNLV

By Mitchell Newman, Featured Handicapper

I have been scuffling a little on the college hardwood this weekend and I simply need to close out the weekend with a winner.

Winning Day # 47 of 78 (and 24 of 40)

$10 players have cleared $6,340 past 77 Days

Big Ten Rivalry Lock - Part 2


This play matches my Wednesday 30 Dime Winner on Rutgers plus the points in their cover at Iowa.

Sunday winner closes out the weekend the right way.

Sunday comp play is the undefeated Aztecs to stay undefeated with the road romp in Sin City against UNLV.

San Diego State is 20-0 on the season and they have won each of their first 9 conference games. Yes, the Aztecs have seen the double-digit impost bite their backers over their last pair of wins, but when priced as the single-digit favorite this year, State has gone 6-0 against the spread.

The Running Rebels have shown improvement with straight up wins in 7 of their last 9 games to move their season mark above .500 at 11-10, but they really haven't sniffed a win against their conference rivals in some time.

San Diego State has reeled off 4 straight wins and covers in this series and stand at 9-1 straight up the last 10 times the teams have played one another with a 7-1-2 spread mark in those 10 contests.

The Rebs feature the # 1 offense in Mountain West, but the 'Tecs counter with the # 1 defense in the conference and that defense will simply force the turnover-laden Rebels into turnover after turnover this afternoon at the Thomas and Mack Center.

It's unlikely the Aztecs blow through the regular season without a loss, but a loss today to the Rebels seems even more unlikely to me.

Lay it with the 20-0 visitor.
