CBB Picks from BV – 2/3/22

If you are on the East side of the country, I hope you are enjoying your snow day. Had a tough day yesterday so I’ve decided to stop playing around and give y’all 8 winners today. Get comfy, make a frozen pizza, and don’t go anywhere cause there’s a large slate that includes a nice PAC-12 game and some 1:30 basketball. Lets make some coin.

UCLA/Arizona, UCLA +6.5

I’m going to go ahead and spotlight the big game because surely that’s what everyone is here for. Going to start with UCLA, 2 losses all year, none on the road. The spread is larger on this game because of the uncertainty of Juzang and Jacquez. Juzang is confirmed playing and Jaquez Jr. is a gametime decision but I think he’ll play. UCLA took down the Wildcats just a week ago by 16 while getting out rebounded brutally. They have something to build upon and a win today would keep them in conversation for a 1 seed despite their covid struggles. Arizona while also very good, is just shy of elite in my eyes. This game will make me reconsider if they can win it, however they’ve only played 3 teams that are in the current Top 25 and are 1-2 in those matchups. If UCLA can crash the glass and get Juzang going, they’ll be in trouble on their home court. I feel much more confident about the Bruins if Jaquez Jr. plays but it can still happen without him.

All the picks in one place:
CMU -3
Bryant -2
Long Island (LIU) -3.5
Wright State -4
Troy +6.5
James Madison ML +100
UCLA +6.5
Oregon -2.5
