2015 College Basketball Betting – Picks For Games On Saturday, February 14

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/12/2015 8:59:14 PM

In a college basketball season that has just about one month left before Selection Sunday, here are the games on the Saturday schedule you should pay the most attention to:

Game 1: Baylor Bears @ Kansas Jayhawks – Saturday, February 14

Baylor has done well this season despite some departures from its roster – Isaiah Austin, Cory Jefferson, and Brady Heslip. Coach Scott Drew is acknowledged as one of a few contenders for Big 12 Coach Of The Year. Yet, Drew and the rest of the Big 12’s coaches have not been able to upend Kansas and Bill Self for quite some time. The 2004 season marked the last time the Jayhawks did not win the Big 12 regular season title. Self has a lock on home games at Phog Allen Fieldhouse – he’s lost just one conference game in that building since February of 2011. When you realize that Kansas is leading the Big 12 right now and that the Jayhawks won on Baylor’s home floor earlier in the season, it becomes harder to pick against Kansas. When you realize that Baylor has won only one road game this season against the top eight teams in the 10-member Big 12, it becomes almost impossible to trust the Bears in this game. You have to stick with Kansas.

College Basketball Betting Pick: Kansas

Game 2: Villanova Wildcats @ Butler Bulldogs - Saturday, February 14

When these teams take the floor on Saturday in Indianapolis, they will be playing for first place in the Big East Conference. Villanova has set the pace in the Big East this season, but Butler is the biggest surprise, given that coach Chris Holtmann had to abruptly take over the team when the permanent head coach, Brandon Miller, announced that he had to step away from his duties for health-related reasons. Holtmann is one of the most special stories in college hoops coaching this season, but can he now lead his team past the heavyweight in the Big East?

Villanova is riding a five-game winning streak and is coming off a solid road win in Providence on Wednesday night. Villanova could have looked ahead to Butler in that game, but the Wildcats remained focused. That’s a window into their maturity, and that maturity is likely to be good enough to lead them past Butler on Saturday.

College Basketball Betting Pick: Villanova

Game 3: Duke Blue Devils @ Syracuse Orange – Saturday, February 14

The Carrier Dome is going to be packed for the biggest Syracuse home game of the season on Saturday, but can the Orange play well enough to make that home crowd happy? Syracuse has beaten absolutely no one of stature in the ACC this season, and the team’s one good non-conference win came against Iowa back in November. Syracuse has fallen off a cliff this season. The Orange have not beaten any of the five teams above them in the ACC, and Duke is coming off a road test at Florida State. The Blue Devils know how to withstand the energy of a motivated opponent in a hostile environment. They have far too much talent and backcourt quickness for Syracuse.

College Basketball Betting Pick: Duke
