College Basketball Beating the Spread 2/19/22: Texas Tech/Texas, Alabama/Kentucky, Illinois/MSU, Iowa/Ohio State

Publish Date: 02/19/2022
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis
January 4, 2022: Kentucky s Kellan Grady 31 puts up a three point shot in front of LSU s Justice Williams 11 during NCAA, College League, USA Basketball action between the Kentucky Wildcats and the LSU Tigers at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in Baton Rouge, LA. /CSM Baton Rouge USA - ZUMAc04_ 20220104_zaf_c04_237 Copyright: xJonathanxMailhesx

Saturday top picks to bet the spread is here.


This is a huge game in the Big Ten and neither team has shown any consistency as of late. Kofi Cockburn is always a huge factor and he will be again, but this game may be decided by who can make their outside shots as both teams have struggled as of late. Neither team played well in their first matchup that Illinois won by a point. I think Cockburn will be the difference in this game but it will be tight and relatively low scoring. Illinois 66  Michigan State 62. Take Illinois and give the one point!

Texas Tech@Texas/h2>
Tickets are going for over a grand for this red hot rivalry and the issue here for the Red Raiders is they are just 2-5 on the road this season. The Longhorns have played well at home and I expect a close low-scoring game that will be decided in the last minute of the game. Texas 70  Texas Tech 65. Take Texas and give the 3 points!

The Wildcats won the first meeting 66-55 and while it was a double-digit win the Tide was still able to make a game of it even though their shots were not falling. The Wildcats are 15-0 at home so far this season and that’s a huge advantage. Alabama can win this game but they have to shoot much better than they did in the first game. Bama’s defense is an issue but rebounding has not been as they actually out-rebounded Kentucky in these teams first matchup. Kentucky 83  Alabama 75. Take Kentucky and give the 6 points!

Iowa@Ohio State

Ohio State is undefeated at home and Iowa has been an inconsistent team. With that being said the hawkeyes road to victory will come from behind the three point line, if the Hawkeyes get hot they will win this game. Iowa’s defense is the main issue and Ohio State should take advantage just enough to get a close win at home in this one. Ohio State 71  Iowa 65. Take Ohio State and give the 5 points!
