College Basketball Double Digit Dogs You Should Bet On This Weekend

 

 

No. 18 Virginia (18-9) at N.C. State (15-14)

When: Saturday, February 25 at 12:00 PM ET
Where: PNC Arena, Raleigh, North Carolina
TV: ESPN

Analysis: NC State is looking at being a double-digit home dog, but the road team in this ACC rivalry is 15-5 ATS in the last 20 meetings and the 18th-ranked Virginia Cavaliers are completely desperate after dropping their last four games. The Cavs snap their skid and win by a half-dozen points, but NC State covers.

Pick: Virginia 71 NC State 65

No. 14 Purdue (23-5) at Michigan (18-10)

When: Saturday, February 25 at 4:00 PM ET
Where: Crisler Center, Ann Arbor, MI
TV: ESPN2

Analysis: I know it’s hard to believe, but Michigan State could be a double-digit home dog against No. 14 Purdue on Saturday, but I like the desperate Spartans to cover by keeping it close against a Purdue team that has won six straight and nine of its last 10 games. Michigan has won four of its last five and are the pick to cover in a closer-than-expected home loss.

Pick: Purdue 78 Michigan 70

Texas Tech (17-11) at Oklahoma State (19-9)

When: Saturday, February 25 at 4:00 PM ET

Analysis: Texas Tech is looking at being a double-digit road dog against Oklahoma State Cowboys, but I’m going to advise you to back the Red Raiders seeing as how they’ve played really hard recently. Despite dropping four of their last five games, Texas Tech has suffered three of those losses by two points or less while beating Baylor long the way. With Texas Tech going 5-1 ATS in their last six games, I say the Red Riders find a way to keep it really close against the Cowboys to cover.

Pick: Oklahoma State 77 Texas Tech 75
